Pop on over to Lottie Loves, where I’m sharing a big ol’ roundup of super cool and stylish notebooks and journals. Above are just a few of my favorites, and I’m completely stoked about the number of fantastic designs that I’ve been seeing lately. It’s a bit of a notebook renaissance, methinks, and I’m all about that!

Paper Ink Press Discount + Giveaway

Affordable Letterpress Birth Announcements

I’m super jazzed to share this new line of letterpress birth announcements by Paper Ink Press with you today. And keep reading for info about a fantastic discount and giveaway for Paper Crave readers!

Sweet Simple Birth Announcements

As a new mother, Melissa from Paper Ink Press (you can also find her over at her blog, The Handwork Chronicles) understands that the business of having babies is expensive enough, and she wanted to give all of the letterpress-loving parents out there an option for letterpress announcements that won’t put a major dent in the kiddo’s college fund. And so was born (pun kind of intended) this sweet and simple line of custom letterpress birth announcements.

Affordable Birth Announcements

The collection includes six different single color designs in A2 size, and because these choices make the announcements more affordable to print, Melissa is able to pass the savings along. Announcements or announcements + coordinating stationery are available in sets of 50, 75, and 100, and numerous options for customization are available.

Discount: Melissa is offering Paper Crave readers a 10% discount on birth announcements and announcement + stationery combos. Enter “papercravebaby” at checkout to receive your discount. This offer will run through September 30, 2011.

Giveaway: In addition to the great discount offer, Melissa is going to be giving away a set of 50 birth announcements + coordinating stationery and return address envelope printing to one lucky Paper Crave reader! To enter, simply comment on this post and let us know which of the birth announcement designs is your favorite.

The winner can keep the prize or gift it to a friend, and you’ll have up to one year to have your custom announcements printed. International entries are welcome, too! One entry per person, please. The giveaway will run through midnight eastern on June 28, 2011, and I’ll announce the winner the following day.
