Em’s Pretty Pink First Birthday Invitations

Pink Letterpress First Birthday Invitations

Well, hello there, gorgeous first birthday invitations! This incredibly sweet and clever letterpress birthday suite was created by the talented duo at Duet Letterpress for their sweet little Em’s first birthday, and the suite includes a letterpress printed invitation card, a super cute photo of the birthday girl, and a letterpress printed keepsake certificate that lists Em’s “first” dates and details : the first time she giggled, the first time she crawled, her first food, first steps, and lots more about this cute little lady. The certificate also features letterpressed versions of her first hand and foot prints at their actual size – awesomeness!

And more great news : the certificates will be available soon in the Duet Letterpress shop, so if you have a little one in your life with a first birthday on the horizon, you can make your own custom certificate for their numero uno birthday!

Invitation Tuesday : Invitation Crush Roundup #1


Shown above, clockwise from top left:Unique Wine Stain + Cork Save the Dates by Three Little Words;  whimstical wedding invitations by The Woodberry Press; clever Composition Notebook Wedding Invitations by Letter Box Ink; gorgeous Indian-Inspired Wedding Invitations by Lion in the Sun; sweet Pink + Gray Woodgrain Wedding Invites by Cricket Printing

We’re in the fourth week of “Invitation Tuesday” here at Paper Crave (yay!). I’ve really enjoyed featuring a couple of invites over here each week, and I hope that you’re getting inspiration from the invitation eye candy, too!

Every few weeks, I’ll be bringing a bit of Invitation Crush over here in the form of a quick roundup so you can have a look at a few of the great invitations, announcements, and save the dates that I’ve been featuring over there. Today is the first roundup, and it allows me to see that I seem to be on “woodgrain” and “clever” kicks lately. It’s funny how we can get into patterns (or visual obsessions, as the case may be) without even realizing!

Weekly Wrap #69 : Pretty Paper Flower Toppers

Weekly Wrap

Crepe Paper Flower Tutorial

I love this crepe paper flower idea from Jessica at How About Orange. These pretty little blooms would make terrific gift toppers and embellishments, and they’d be a lovely finishing touch for favor boxes and bags. Jessica shows us how to make our very own bouquet of crepe paper flower embellishments right here.

I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend, and if you celebrate the holiday, Happy Easter to you! I’ll see you back here next week with plenty of craveable paper goodies!
