Nonpareil #3

Maddy and I launched issue number three of Nonpareil Magazine late last week, and I can’t get over all of the gorgeousness housed within its (virtual) pages. If you’re looking to be inspired and to make some kickin’ crafts, wedding-centric or not, then this one’s a must see. Lots of lovely, free printables — favor boxes, medallions, decorative paper cones, cookie envelopes and recipe cards — as well as unique craft ideas for weddings and beyond. Here’s a peek at what you’ll find in the issue:

New Advertiser : Lettergirl

Lettergirl Custom Address Stamps

I’m so pleased to welcome Paper Crave’s newest advertiser, Lettergirl. I first swooned over Gina’s hand lettering / calligraphy work early last year and am still completely taken with her lineup of lovely lettered goodies. Lettergirl’s custom stamps feature a number of different styles of hand lettering, and I’m excited to see that she’s offering super cute, customized gift tag stamps, in addition to her lineup of custom address stamps. You can check out the entire line here.
