Blind Impression Thank You Cards

Vanessa from Alchemy Fine Events recently released a line of blind impression thank you cards.  Vanessa designed them with a recent bride in mind, but really anyone can use them.  Aren’t they pretty?  Of course, I love the blind letterpress impression!

Sneak Peek – Martha Stewart Weddings Winter 2011 Issue

The Winter 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings will be on newsstands in just a few days, and I’m so excited to help share a tiny sneak peek at the upcoming issue!

Martha-Stewart-Weddings-Winter-2011

I always look forward to the stationery features, and for this issue the editors decided to focus on some semi-DIY save the date ideas.  My favorite idea from the upcoming issue is the folded envelope save the date below, where you can have your favorite calligrapher create a scanned image of your text, then fold the page up into its own envelope and send it on its way – just like a regency letter.  So romantic!

There are lots of other cool ideas in the issue, but you’ll have to wait just a few more days to pick up your copy!

Purple Baby Announcements for Olivia!

My friend Kari from SugarB Studio recently welcomed a baby girl into her family, and baby Olivia is just as cute as can be!  Inspired by the arrival of her baby daughter, Kari decided to combine the baby announcement with a holiday greeting.  Kari said that the two-in-one card not only saved time and money, but it was the perfect way to spread holiday cheer!

Nikki + Josh’s Balsa Wood Wedding Invitations

These wedding invitations come to us from my very own ‘hood!  Nikki and Josh were married just across the river in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, this past May.  Nikki and Josh’s photographers, Holland Photo Arts, thought I might be interested in Nikki and Josh’s beautiful and creative wedding invitations (and of course, I totally was).  The invitations were designed by one of my local favorites, Saima Says Design, and printed on balsa wood with letterpress enclosures and coordinating day-of pieces, including fan ceremony programs.

Nikki and Josh had a vintage-inspired wedding theme based around one of Nikki’s father’s childhood toys.  The invitations reflect the overall vintage inspiration while retaining an overall modern feel.  So pretty!
