Paper-Inspired Pairings

Hello there!  Jane here from Ill Seen, Ill Said.  For the next five days lovely Nole has given me free rein of her blog.  And although she was open to me blogging whatever my heart desires, I thought it would be fun to try to stay within the “paper” theme Nole’s blog name suggests, but take some playful little liberties.  Today, I decided to come up with some pairings inspired by some of my favourite items from the Oh So Beautiful Paper archives.

1. Dress by Erdem
2. Invitation by Ma Joie Press, originally blogged here

1. Envelope Clutch by Jessica Jensen
2. Invitations by Hello!Lucky, originally blogged here

2. Invitation by Faye & Co., originally blogged here

1. Earrings by Joanna Rutter
2. Invitations by Oh Louise!, originally blogged here

1. Dress by Shabd
2. Business cards by Jordan Ferney, originally blogged here

Floral Heart Art Print

Here I go again with my sudden fascination with all things heart-shaped.  But I’m seriously smitten with this floral heart block print from onecanoetwo.  So pretty!

Shabby Chic Linen Save the Dates

I’m a big fan of invitations that involve fabric, so I was thrilled when Valentina from CUTandPASTE sent over these linen Shabby Chic-inspired save the dates that she designed for a wedding later this spring.

From ValentinaThe couple desired something with a vintage-shabby style so I’ve created this multi-layered, crafty, and natural save the date composed by a small tag with their monogram, a custom hand-stamped linen fabric, and a warm white save the date enclosure – all sewed together.  The warm white and light brown color palette represents the couple’s soft and gentle style.
