Real Invitations – Robin Rosenthal

This one is a bit of an oldie, but a {really, really} goodie.  These fabulously fun yet simple invitations are from the May 2005 wedding of Robin Rosenthal and Matt Hall featured in the Winter 2006 edition of Martha Stewart Weddings:

The invitations themselves are so wonderfully creative, but then there are all of the wedding details:

Robin is an amazing graphic designer and illustrator, working as Deputy Art Director at Martha Stewart Kids magazine until March 2006.  Check out her full portfolio here!

It's been a while since I did a post on notebooks and paper goods, and with lots of designers introducing their new fall products it seemed like a good time to feature a few of my favorites from Lotta Jansdotter:

Poster Offensive

I saw these on sfgirlbybay last week, but they're so good I couldn't resist re-posting them here:


{by Amy Jo.  This poster is probably my favorite.  I could see this being the design inspiration for invitations to a vintage-inspired wedding}


{by Kelly Munson}



{by Studio on Fire}
