Jessica Claire’s Vintage Book Invitations

I was perusing recently relaunched blog, The Sweetest Occasion, written by Cyd Converse and filled to the brim with wonderfully inspirational party and wedding-centric eye candy, when I was stopped in my tracks. You see, I’d spotted the post on Jessica Claire’s wedding invitations, and I couldn’t go on until I’d explored every pixel of one of the most amazing invitation suites that I think I’ve ever seen. Squee, copper paper and wax seals! Double squee, hollowed out vintage books that hold the invitations! Every invitation is unique and fits perfectly into the vintage 1920′s, lock, and key theme of the wedding (see more images here):

Spark Stationery’s new website, letterpresslove.com, has the designer in me doing backflips of delight. These are metaphorical backflips, of course, since I don’t want to think about what would happen to my creaky body if I tried to do an actual backflip, but the site design is so awesome that I’m tempted! And Spark has equally awesome letterpressed print collateral to compliment the new website:

Okay, so I’ve obviously gotten caught up in the web and print designer kind of stuff, but Spark has a great blog where they showcase their latest invitations and other work, including the gorgeous letterpress lovebird invitations below, aka the Lucinda invitation set, one of 20 design suites in their new Wedding Love Album. Teal and brown, woodgrain patterns, super cute birds, wonderful modern design … love it!

Flowermill Design Studio

Flowermill Gift Wrap

I’m really digging what I’m seeing from Cape Town, South Africa based stationer and lifestyle design studio, Flowermill. They create everything from gorgeous gift wrap — great color and pattern! — to gift tags, greeting cards, custom corporate paper goods and wedding invitations, and even interior design items like block-mounted canvas prints. They also produce everything locally, to minimize their carbon footprint, and print all of their cards on recycled paper.

The Flowermill line is currently carried in shops across South Africa, but they’re looking to expand to new markets, so drop them a line if you’re interested! Here’s a little peek at their line:

Rock Scissor Paper Owl Invitations + Free Cupcake Toppers

Rock Scissor Paper Owl Invitations

Rock Scissor Paper Cupcake Toppers

I love owls, and I love woodgrain, so Rock Scissor Paper’s new Owl Party Invitations are right up my alley. And … they’ve designed free printable cupcake toppers to match! Doesn’t an owl-themed party sound like fun? Transform the cupcake topper printables into a cute garland or print them onto sticker paper and use them to embellish the invitation envelopes, place cards, etc. for super owl-y festivities.

Okay, so I just noticed that Rock Scissor Paper has an entire Owl Shoppe … um, awesome!
