Fill-In Letterpress Party Invitations

I love these fill-in letterpress invitations from Ilee — great if you're planning a bridal shower or birthday party, or just to keep around for an impromptu get-together:

Small + Delicate

Happy Monday everyone!  And happy Passover to those of you celebrating this week.  As we do nearly every year, we'll be going to a seder tonight with some very good friends and I just can't wait for this evening to arrive.  So in the meantime, I thought I'd help pass the time with these beautiful necklaces from Stone + Honey and Polli:

I don't usually wear a lot of gold jewelry, but lately I've been drawn to small, delicate, and intricate gold necklaces like the ones above.  The honeycomb pattern from Stone + Honey is definitely on my wishlist, but I also love the whimsy of Polli's tea time necklace.

{happy weekend!}

Whew… today has really gotten away from me!  But happily it's Friday, so the fact that I seem to be operating on a 2-hour delay today doesn't really bother me.  Hooray weekend!  But in the meantime…

From the invitations (Paper + Cup) to the calligraphy (Paperfinger) to the amazing vintage photograph table runner and centerpieces (by Hatch Creative Studio), Vané pulled together an amazing group of vendors for a beautiful show.  I wish I could have been there in person!  I'm sure Vané will be doing a more extensive review of the show on Brooklyn Bride and the Urban Wed blog, but in the meantime you can read about the experience on Ruffled, Papertastebuds, and Paper + Cup.

Business Card Ideas and Inspiration #2

I'm overdue for new business cards, so I've been looking around for layout ideas.  Last year, I went with a one-sided horizontal layout, but this year I'm thinking I'd like to mix things up a bit.  I really love the vertical layout of these business cards from Second World Design Collaborative and Papered Together:

I also really like the idea of double-sided business cards, like these from Ink + Wit (printed by Boxcar Press) and Thinktopia (printed by Studio on Fire):

I've got a few more business card photos over on my tumblr page.  I'm thinking about a combination of vertical and horizontal layouts on double-sided cards.  I'll be sure to share photos a bit later on!

UPDATE: So I just saw that Sarah from Parrott Design Studio also recently printed new letterpress business cards for herself, using her new calligraphy logo by Grace Edmands – and I'm in love.  Such a gorgeous card, from the vertical layout, to the calligraphy, to the floral border at the top:
