Stationery | Personal Stationery + Calling Card

A lot of times people hear the word “stationery” and their minds immediately jump to invitations… particularly wedding invitations.  But let’s not forget the loveliness of a personal stationery set and the joy of receiving a hand-written note!  Whether for personal use, or professional use, a custom-designed stationery set and calling card make a beautiful impression.  Paired with a return address rubber stamp, a stationery set would make a lovely gift for the new graduate, for Father’s Day, or for personal use on the job market!

This set included envelopes in both khaki + olive green.  Fun to switch it up!undefinedSimple calling cards with phone numbers and email do the trick!  Love the feel of this textured paper.

Stationery | Hello from the new Mr. + Mrs.

If you recall, back in February I had a little Studio drawing at this Nashville affair, and one lucky bride won the Grand Prize: a set of 50 custom designed note cards!  This bride and her attentive fiancé looked at several ideas for designs, from a monogram to a “Thank You” message.  They finally settled on a more universal message saying simply: “Hello from Mr. & Mrs. Jennings.”  They’ll be able to use these lovelies for a variety of hand-written notes and messages!  Bright peacock blue envelopes coordinating with the peacock blue, burnt orange and chocolate brown of their wedding day colors.  What a fun & crisp, modern design!  And best wishes to the soon to be Mr. + Mrs. Jennings!

Events | Nashville Bridal Brunch

{WINNERS} I am happy to announce the winners of the Design in August Studio Giveaway!!  The lucky brides-to-be are Miss Megan Deising (winner of the custom return address rubber stamp) and Miss Leah Caudle (winner of the custom thank you note set).  Congrats, ladies!!  I am excited to design these items for you and look forward to posting them here on the blog.

I was delighted to show my stationery work at HER Nashville’s Bridal Brunch this past Sunday.  We had an excellent turnout at Vanderbilt’s Commodore Ballroom and I am pleased as punch – or, should I say, mimosas!  It was such fun meeting with lovely brides-to-be (and their attentive grooms-to-be) as we chatted stationery needs and paper goods in a lively, brunch atmosphere.  I also had fun seeing which pieces caught the most attention – hello, lined envelopes & save the date postcards!  A highlight for attendees was the fashion show, featuring gown trends for Spring 2011 (ruffles! ruffles! ruffles!).  And a highlight for Design in August was not one, but TWO Studio Giveaways!  Brides entered to win either a set of custom thank you notes OR a custom return address rubber stamp.  I will be announcing the two lovely winners tomorrow.  Thanks, HER Nashville for hosting a can’t-miss brunch.  Cheers!

Stay tuned on Wednesday when I will announce the two winners of my Studio Giveaway!  Could it be you?!

Stationery | Peacock Blue Note Cards

I love a bold colored envelope.  I love how it sets itself apart from bills and other white noise the moment you glance at a stack of mail.  These lovely peacock blue envelopes inspired this personalized note card set.  A swirl of an ink pen and a splash of chartreuse in the monogram – I imagine this clean, modern design will inspire Ms. Wilson to script many a personalized note!

Stationery | Personalized Note Cards

I’ve been making my list and checking it twice – lots to do before Christmas arrives!  Things are hopping in the studio these days as I am wrapping up orders for custom Christmas cards, return address stamps and completing ephemera for Erica + Charles’ wedding next weekend.  I’m excited to post about these projects over the next couple of weeks.  In the meantime, here is something lovely to munch on: a personalized note card set for Jan.  Only it’s not for Jan.  It’s a Christmas gift for Jan’s friend.  (Don’t you wish you were Jan’s friend?!)   Stay tuned after the holidays to see a full post on this design.
