Typoes Happen Letterpress Eraser Card

Okay, how brilliant is this Typoes Happen letterpress eraser card from a.favorite? So clever, and if I weren’t already a huge a.favorite fangirl, then this card would’ve made me one. The card, which looks remarkably like a Pink Pearl eraser, also contains a great sentiment. We all make mistakes, and we just need to be easier on ourselves when we do and “move on”. Love that!

Studio Calico Elementary Scrapbook Paper Collection

I am absolutely loving all of the mid-century inspired scrapbook paper collections that have been coming out over the past year, and Studio Calico’s new Elementary scrapbook paper collection has to be one of my favorites. The colors in the papers are vibrant, yet still reminiscent of vintage schoolroom details, and the patterns? Well, the patterns are awesome! Atmosphere (below, top) is undoubtedly my favorite, but the entire collection is pretty darn great. And the patterned edge ledger papers (I’ve shown pink, but there’s a blue version, too) are a great idea for keeping track of baby milestones or school firsts.

I’m trying something different with this feature and am including an inspirational palette pulled from the papers. You can see it above the first image below, and I thought this might be something that you’d be interested in if you’re looking for color inspiration. I know that I really enjoy it when wedding and design blogs share color palettes, and since color is always a major reason why I feature the scrapbook collections that I do, I think it’s a good fit. What do you think? Yay or nay on the color palettes?

And now, back on track with Elementary eye candy:

The Feedback Loop Notebook Project

The Feedback Loop Project Notebooks

The web has been buzzing about the new Feedback Loop Notebook Project, and I’m hopping right on the buzzwagon because it’s a fantastic concept for a great cause. The project launched on September 8 and is a collaboration between Mohawk Fine Papers and Design Ignites Change.

25 leading letterpress printers were invited to participate in the project, using their creative and technical prowess to create limited edition letterpress notebooks (just 50 of each design is available) on Mohawk’s Loop paper, which was donated for the project. The result is a spectacular cornucopia of amazing notebooks featuring each printer’s special touch, and they’re all available for purchase in a special section of the Felt & Wire Shop. The notebooks are just $15, and 100% of the proceeds benefit kids via School : By Design, a youth mentoring initiative that asks high school students, in collaboration with their mentors, to redesign their school.

Here’s just a taste of what you can find over at Felt & Wire’s Feedback Loop shop. I especially love seeing all of the different binding techniques used:

Dude and Chick Letterpress Birthday Cards

Hee! I’m getting a kick out of the line of letterpress greetings from St. Paul, Minnesota based letterpress studio, Dude and Chick. All of the cards from “DNC” are designed, illustrated, and printed in-house by John Gurtin and Katie Wilson, the duo behind Dude and Chick, and I’m loving the humor and style in their cards. Here are some of my favorite birthday greetings from their shop:
