Lucia soaps were all over the design blogs last week, but I had to give them a mention here because I love the combination of the ultra modern labeling with the gorgeous patterned papers. One astute commenter over at design*sponge noted that the papers used in the packaging could be found at Paper Mojo and, indeed, many of the beautiful papers are from Wooster & Prince and Snow & Graham. What a smart idea for packaging! – spotted on design*sponge and The Dieline

Paper Source recently introduced their Wedding Collection, which features 52 modern wedding invitation suites (Decorative Frame suite shown above) in four categories: Whites, Flourish, Elegant, and Fresh. I love the use of decorative and solid colored papers as envelope liners and “belly bands”. They really make many of the invitations pop.
Invitations in the line are available flat printed or letterpress printed, and you can select all of the decorative elements in a wedding suite or choose just the ones that suit your needs.
More lovelies from the PS Wedding Collection:
Monogram with Quartz
Type Motif with Shimmer Gold
Serif Type with Florentine

Please welcome Paper Crave’s newest sponsor, Galinblack, whose creative pop-up cards are available in designs for any and all occasions. I’m still in awe over the ease with which Galinblack seems to create even complex designs, such as the Eiffel Tower and the UK’s Ironbridge.
Revisit Paper Crave’s January feature of Galinblack here, and see all of Galinblack’s pop-up cards here.
