Mildly Obsessed: Washi Tape.

| DIY, Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Wedding Ideas

As obsessed with craft supplies as I am, it’s no surprise that Washi Tape has made it to the top of my list of things to obsess over lately.

Washi Tape is a Japanese tape made from paper, so it’s slightly see through + 100% gorgeous. With hundreds of different patterns and designs to choose from, there are endless ways to use this tape!

I’ve been taping things up everywhere – I love the way it looks!

Isn’t it so delicate + lovely?

These would be the perfect way to seal an envelope and can be used in so many different DIY projects.

Also, if you’re loving the tape strips I added to my layout up there, I got them Pugly Pixel + they are adorable. Go get some for yourself right now!

Recent Work: Lindsay + Eric Invites

| Real Weddings, Wedding Ideas

I am beyond excited to be a part of my lovely friend Lindsay’s wedding coming up next month, and we’re kicking off the festivities this weekend with her shower + bachelorette party!

When Lindsay asked me to help her with her wedding invites, she knew exactly what she wanted – it was honestly the most simple invite design I’ve done before.

I loved her vision + am so happy with how they turned out!

The silver ribbon does me in – SO her style. I’m sure there will be lots more Lindsay + Eric wedding posts to come, I can’t wait to share parts of their special day with you 🙂


Love/List: Letterpress Details

| Letterpress, Love/List, Wedding Ideas

I express my love for letterpress often on my blog, getting my letterpress machines up and running is even on my list of things to do this year.

So once a month, I will be sharing my Love/List of things letterpressed.

Today, it’s in the details.

If you don’t want to splurge on an entirely letterpressed invitation suite but still want the uniqueness of letterpress, having smaller details letterpressed could be the way to go.

Have the belly bands for your invitations done in letterpress, or have another element of your wedding letterpressed – like coasters or favor tags.

One word of warning: Having different shapes can increase the price on any printed items because a die has to be made, so if you are really watching out for price then make sure you stick to straight or rectangular details.

What details would you add letterpress to? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

Friday Favorite: Letterpress Love

| Inspiration, Letterpress

When it comes to stationary, there are two things I can can’t get enough of: Letterpress and Calligraphy.

So when I saw these…. *swoon*


These letterpressed calligraphy invites by Linda & Harriett and gorgeous.

I cannot wait to get new rollers for my letterpress machine and get started learning how to print on them so I can start creating something as gorgeous as these.

Have a lovely weekend!
