Williams Sonoma Canning + Food Gift Dies and L Letterpress Sets

Williams Sonoma + Lifestyle Crafts Food Gift Letterpress Sets

I love it when the worlds of food and paper collide, especially when the results are as awesome as these DIY letterpress and die cutting food gift + canning sets from Williams Sonoma’s Agrarian collection. The line, which features food-themed letterpress plate sets and box and packaging dies, is perfect for home canning enthusiasts and would also be wonderful for creating beautiful packaging for food gifts this holiday season.

Williams Sonoma also carries the Evolution craft tool (aka the Rolling Machine), which can be used with both the plates and dies, as well as the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Platform. Ooh, I’m so excited just thinking about all of the pretty goodies that can be created with this fun, foodie collection!

Jeff & Judy’s Juno-Inspired Wedding Stationery

Jeff & Judy's Juno-Inspired Wedding Stationery | Anticipate Invitations

I love me some cute and quirky wedding invitations, and these sweet and fun custom invites by Anticipate Invitations make me smile. Inspired by the movie, Juno, the pieces in this playful suite feature a mix of photos and line illustrations, along with pops of rich red and teal blue.

Michael from Anticipate Invitations shares:

Jeff and Judy envisioned having a fun, lighthearted, and kid-friendly wedding, and the invitation set the stage for just that. They were originally inspired by the quirky imagery from the movie Juno, so they combined this playful look with photographs taken in the park during their engagement shoot for an invitation suite that can best be described as “by far the greatest departure from anything we’ve done before.”

The invitations included a coloring postcard for guests to utilize their artistic abilities and mail back to the couple. Their work was displayed as part of the sweetheart table’s décor at the reception. Things were also kept simple by having all RSVPs completed online to eliminate another card and postage.

Lights & Lucia Holiday Letterpress Cards | Moxie House Paper Goods

I am so excited about all of the beautiful, new holiday card collections that have been popping up over the past month, and the Lucia & Lights letterpress holiday card collection from Moxie House Paper Goods is one of my favorites.

The collection was inspired by St. Lucia’s Day, widely celebrated in the Scandinavian countries, and features wonderful illustrations depicting Scandinavian holiday traditions in a fresh, modern color scheme. One of my favorite card details is the scalloped card edges – such a sweet touch!
