Wiley Valentine Aubergine & Fuchsia Wedding Invitations


Okay, so I may have to bump navy + pink as my current top color obession after spotting these aubergine + fuchsia lovelies by Wiley Valentine in my inbox. How rich and gorgeous are these colors, and coupled with the ornate pattern? Absolutely stunning.

The custom wedding invitations, created for a client of one of their retailers, Molly’s Paperie, are based on Cohen from Wiley Valentine’s Luxe Album and are flat printed on 100% tree-free cotton paper. The custom suite also features a fantastic script font and completely swoon-worthy coordinating patterned envelope liners. Are you ready for more aubergine and fuchsia invitation eye candy?

Rag & Bone Bindery Albums + Custom Calligraphy

Rag & Bone Bindery Albums


I’m a longtime admirer of Rag & Bone Bindery‘s albums and journals, and it was such a treat to be able to meet Jason and Ilira in person at the National Stationery Show this past May and to see all of their beautiful albums on display. If you’re on the hunt for beautiful wedding albums, guestbooks, photo albums, journals, and baby books, then the Rag & Bone site is a must see. I love that they have so many cover options, too, ranging from bold and bright patterns to understated solids.

Rag & Bone is holding a virtual trunk show until Sunday, and you can save 25% on one-of-a-kind samples and unique cover options. Plenty of beautiful albums to be had!

Here’s a little eye candy from their ready to order line:

I think it’s fantastic that Rag & Bone also offers custom calligraphy for any of their albums and journals. They work with calligrapher Maria Thomas, whose work is absolutely gorgeous, and you’re really only limited by your imagination with personalization options. One man had a personalized album made for his girlfriend based on the movie “Up”, and one bride had a photo album personalized with names and the date on the first page, followed by chapter pages with personalized titles like “getting ready”, “at the church”, “the ceremony”, etc. Baby albums, wedding albums, bar and bat mitzvahs, travel albums — so many possibilities.

Here are just a few examples of Maria’s wonderful custom calligraphy:

You guys and gals rock! Seriously. I can’t get over how creative your entries for the Roll-O-Decks giveaway were — one of you even wrote a Roll-O-Decks poem (thanks, deb!), which totally made my day.

Now, without further ado, the winner of the Envelopments Roll-O-Decks:


Envelopments Roll-O-Decks


Comment #200 was Courtney, who said:

I’d definitely use it as a sort of modified sketchbook! I tend to sketch out ideas on all sorts of random scraps of paper and end up losing them in giant purses, pockets, etc throughout the day. Carrying a few of these with me and returning them to the roll each night would help me keep track of my ideas. And I’d be at no loss for inspiration when sitting down at my desk with it right there in front of me!

Congratulations, Courtney! I’ll be contacting you shortly for your information so Envelopments can get your new Roll-O-Decks to you!

Cooking Themed Bridal Shower Invitations

Cooking Themed Bridal Shower Invitations by Paisly Quill

Hello, Buttermilk! I am completely taken with these cooking / kitchen themed bridal shower invitations that Molly from Paisley Quill created for her soon to be sister-in-law’s bridal shower. What about this custom designed suite isn’t fantastic? I’m digging pretty much everything about it, from the unexpected palette of bold red-orange, yellow, navy, gray and soft pink to the angled type, patterned envelope liners, and coordinating recipe cards.

You can check out more of Paisley Quill’s wonderful invitation work here. And these woodland themed wedding invitations are a must see, too. Now, more cooking-themed invitation eye candy!
