Happy Monday everyone! I don’t know about you, but the weekend wasn’t nearly long enough for me. So this morning I thought I’d switch things up a bit and start the week off with some lovely greeting cards and stationery from the spring collection at Papersheep. Gina from Papersheep sent over some of her latest cards; I’m loving the coffee or tea stain card (so perfect for a caffeine addict like me) and the change of address card. What about you?
You can check out the full collection over at Papersheep. Thanks Gina!

Yeesh… this week went by in a complete flash, at least for me. Which is good as I try to get through the remaining months until my husband comes home (in late summer, sigh), but also kind of scary when I think about the fact that the National Stationery Show is just over a month away. Time is going by so fast! I have a couple of fun things coming up soon that I can’t wait to tell you all about, but you’ll have to wait until next week for details. But in the meantime…

…a few links for your weekend:
This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:
That’s it for me this week! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xoxo
Chances are, if you’re reading this blog then you love to both send and receive mail (right??). And if you’re a true correspondence connoisseur then you also appreciate beautiful stamps and a well-dressed envelope as part of a beautiful total package. Well, Jaime from Joseph and Jaime Photography definitely falls into that category – and today she’s here to share a little project that she’s been working on showcasing the beauty of mailed paper correspondence.
Jaime has a side project called Send More Mail, where she collects packs of vintage Canadian stamps, and she’s partnered up with a stationer (Snap and Tumble) and a calligrapher (Barbara Kua) for a beautiful stationery collaboration. As Jaime puts it: “Our collaboration is about considering all of the aspects of sending out correspondence and invitations. A gorgeous card, addressed beautifully, complete with stunning vintage stamps.“
So pretty! Stationery by Snap and Tumble. Calligraphy by Barbara Kua. Vintage Canadian stamps from Send More Mail.

I’m loving the subtle gradient color shift in these invitations from Dingbat Press. The invitations were printed using a letterpress technique called split fountain, in which two ink colors are distributed on the press at the same time so that they gradually blend together. I’ve seen this done a few times before and I always think the results are stunning. The gradient pattern reminds me a bit of watercolor, don’t you think?
You can see a few more images and read more about the split fountain technique over on the Dingbat Press blog right here.
