Melina over at Papel Vivo sent over this adorable paper doll Valentine. She is so crafty! On a different exciting note, Melina is printing up some fabulous letterpress cards for my business. I’m so exicted!
Visit her Etsy store for lots of cuteness and goodness!
Some consider it a lost art, the handwritten note. Such a little thing can mean so much! But wait, little? Maybe not so much when you are talking 150 thank you cards to wedding guests. However, it can and should be done.
Some tips to make the task a little easier:
*Make it fun by shopping around for the perfect thank you card stationary (if you didn’t order cards with your invites). Visit local paper stores like Paper Source and Sugar Press. Search on-line sites for tons of inspiration and ideas. Some of my favs: Lucky Orchid Wedding, Wedding Paper Divas, Hello Lucky.
* Start to prepare the cards in the months leading up to your wedding. Stamp and place your return address on them.
* Write out a thank you card as each gift arrives.
* Take turns! Have your spouse take part in the writing fun. This after-wedding job usually falls on the bride, but both of you can enjoy an evening of wine & writing. Throw in some reminiscing about the wedding day and you have yourself a truly romantic time!
For more tips on specifics like when, how and what with Thank You cards, visit the Wedding Paper Divas blog for some great, informative information.

Love, Love when couples look for original and exciting ways to spice up their events. Just like this London-based couple that worked with Ms. Fabulous Laura Hooper to create a puzzle Save-The-Date/Escort Table!
As part of their wedding ceremony, Alexa and Jorge had their save-the-date transformed into a huge puzzle that was used as an escort table. Guest’s table assignments were printed on the back of each piece with a coordinating puzzle key.

…. I’ve created a suite of pom pom themed printables that you can print and use for showers and parties. The set includes pom pom patterned paper that you can use as gift wrap, invitations that will fit into 4 bar envelopes, gift tags, and place cards that can also be used for a variety of purposes. And, because I love color and can never decide on just one, I’ve made the set available in a peachy pink, a warm gray, and a buttery yellow….
These are the cutest and talk about being eco-friendly! Each flower pin by Linda & Harriett is made from letterpress misprints.
