TREE OF LOVE

14 Apr

I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Erica and fiance John on their wedding invitations. The proposal set place under an old tree on his farm out in Texas. He popped the question by engraving “Will you marry me?” into the trunk. Not to mention that the tree was cover in a million twinkle lights. Are you kidding me?! That is every little girl’s dream. Naturally, the couple exchanged vows under the tree in true fairytale fashion. One of my favorite piece of this wedding suite is the real wood envelope. It is beautiful, functional and USPS friendly. Congrats to Erica and her prince charming in boots!

Sarah & Ryan

22 Jul

This is a long overdue post about this amazing couple.  I had so much fun creating a nature themed wedding invitation for Sarah and Ryan. Using different shades of green and a light gray accents, the invitation became the perfect balance of nature and modern.

LITTLE MADISON

5 Apr

I had so much fun teaming-up with Blue Mutt Photography to create these adorable birth announcements for little Madison. Her bright and warm photographs of Madison worked perfectly with the vibrant green and pink accent colors that adorn little Maddie’s nursery. The hard part was picking just one to use for the announcement.

 

MONKEY BUSINESS

I had the pleasure of designing and printing a birthday invite for the most adorable little boy I know. He was such a great client and had only one request: MONKEYS!! What a blast creating this brightly colored postcard invite, thank you card and personal note card. Soon you will be able to go bananas too and get your own at the S+P shop.

FIRST DATE WITH OUR NEW PRESS

15 Nov

After a much needed cleaning session, my new press Chandler was ready to print. With a little elbow grease and tons of simple green, I was able to remove 100 years of ink buildup, rust and old paint. Humm..(eyes tearing up)….I am totally in love with my new press. He prints beautifully with crisp lines and bold colors. Here is a little sneak peek at our holiday card.

Sookie keeping an eye out and making sure everything runs smoothly.


MEET CHANDLER

18 Oct

It has been one of the craziest weekends of my life. My husband and I drove to Oklahoma to pick up my first Chandler and Price letterpress. What we thought was going to be a one day trip ended up being a two day saga. Though it could have totally been a nightmare, this weekend ended up being incredibly rewarding and a story we will be sharing with our friends and family for many years to come.

So after a 7 hour drive and many beers later, I am very proud to introduce to you our new 1000lb letterpress: CHANDLER BING LANE PRICE (or as you may call him CHANDLER). I will be sharing my CHANDLER adventures with you guys every step of the way.

And special thanks to my wonderful husband for making this all happen.

IT’S A DATE

24 Sep

I always love beautiful calendars. It’s so hard to throw them away after the year has flown by.  I end up reusing the art from the calendars to spruce up a picture frame or put some framed work up on the bare patch of a wall. Check these beauties out because it’s already time to start planning for next year.

These are from New Jersey based letterpress shop Norman’s Printery.

Paper Source always has such a good selection of calendars and planning tools.

I can’t get over these monthly planners from Moleskine. A different color for every month?! Does it defeat the purpose if you don’t actually write in them?


Miles of Light created this beautiful handmade feather one sheet calendar that would be beautiful above any desk.

How cute are these monthly planners with hand drawn covers and pastel hues from Letter C Designs.
