Friday Link Love

Well hello, Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am so happy the weekend is here. This has been a week that has felt like four or five consecutive Mondays in a row. I am going to take it easy this weekend, try to re-energize a bit and spend lots of time with my husband and our pups. On Sunday I’m flying to New York where later in the week I’ll be at various Kate’s Paperie locations for a series of events with Smock. More details to come next week, but take my word for it – if you’re in the market for fabulous invitations, you don’t want to miss this one! So with that, I wish you all the best weekend – see you next week!


Don’t forget to get inspired and get your DIY on!

Custom Wedding Invitations from Erin Jang

I love Erin Jang’s design work because it’s always fresh and a little unexpected. These cheerful letterpress wedding invitations were a custom creation for Emily and Dan’s recent wedding and I just love how playful they are. They have a mid-century appeal, a fun smiley face custom envelope liner and showcase a great example of overprinting in letterpress, which is what creates the three-color effect where the red and blue overlap. Don’t these just make you happy?

Cute As a Button Baby Shower

Last week I had the pleasure of sharing the beautiful backyard bridal shower that Brianne Walker of  Sean Walker Photography planned for her best friend and today I am thrilled to be sharing Brianne’s own baby shower! Brianne’s mom and sister planned an adorable “cute as a button” themed shower with pretty lady-like details in celebration of the upcoming birth of Brianne’s little baby boy. Buttons made an appearance on the invitations, as cute little cookies and sprinkled throughout the decor. I love a shower like this! It’s simple and lovely and incredibly approachable. Thanks so much for sharing, Brianne, and a big congratulations to you and Sean on the new addition to your family!
