Letterpress Prints from Pistachio Press + Mummysam

I love to see creative collaborations, and I was excited to hear from Rachael of Pistachio Press about her recent collaboration with English illustrator, Samantha Cotterill (aka mummysam). The result is two super cool letterpress art prints, Portraits and Time to Go for Tea, and you can purchase them at both mummysam’s and Pistachio Press’ shops. The prints are a limited edition of just 100 each, so be sure to check them out before they’re gone!

Louella Press Voodoo Doll Kit

I know that I already mentioned Louella Press’ super cool Valentine’s Day cards in one of my roundups, but I just had to tell you about their letterpress Voodoo Doll Kit! Valentine’s Day isn’t a holiday filled with chocolates, pink and red hearts, and lovey dovey sentiments for everyone. And, if you find yourself approaching this holiday with, well, less than positive emotions, then this kit is the perfect way to work through them. The kit even comes with pins for poking!

Weekly Wrap #8 : Coin Appeal

Weekly Wrap

Another Friday is here and I, for one, am very much looking forward to the weekend. If you’ve sent me an email recently, please allow for a little (okay, a lot) of extra response time, as we’re headed into the final stretch before the launch of Nonpareil, and I’ve been completely immersed in that project lately. Maddy and I are so excited for everyone to see the first issue, which will be coming out very soon!

I’m all about simple but beautiful gift wrapping lately, and this week’s Weekly Wrap is a reflection of this. I spotted this lovely idea over at the always inspirational Cafe Cartolina blog and was led to discover another wonderfully inspirational blog, Esprit Bohème, as a result. The combination of simple, white tissue paper with a more industrial twine and a centime coin detail is so very pretty, don’t you think?

Happy weekend, everyone, and look for more Valentine’s Day card roundups coming your way next week!
