Luxe Expressions has just unveiled a new website, which showcases their ever growing collection of luxury wedding, baby, and social invitations. In celebration, they’re holding a contest to name the new design shown above. The contest will run until September 15, 2008, and the winner will receive a free set of thank you cards, as well as a 25% discount on any order for wedding, baby, or social invitations.

You can submit your entry through the contact us page at Luxe Expressions, or you can send your entry directly to infoATluxeexpressionsDOTcom (replace AT and DOT with periods). In either case, use the subject line “CONTEST” so they’ll know that you’re entering the contest.

During this time, Luxe Expressions is also offering Paper Crave readers a 15% discount on custom wedding invitations, social stationery, or baby announcements. Just mention ICRAVE4LUXEEXPRESSIONS when you place your order to receive the discount. Many thanks to Debra!

Mr. Campy by Cosmo Cricket

7.25.2008 1 Comment

Oh. My. Goodness. The Mr. Campy scrapbooking paper collection by Cosmo Cricket has set my little heart aflutter. The retro color scheme, the faux bois, the mini campers…eep, I’m palpitating here! Okay, I need to go lie down somewhere and calm myself, but you can see more collections and find out where Cosmo Cricket papers are carried on their website, and you can purchase the papers here, here, or here.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Rock Scissor Paper Stationery and Greeting Card Workshop

If you’re interested in the ins and outs of running a stationery and/or greeting card business and are in the Los Angeles area (or you will be in late September), you won’t want to miss this workshop given by sister team, Heidi and Susie Bauer, of the wonderful Rock Scissor Paper.

The one day class will examine the industry from top to bottom and will cover topics such as developing a product line, licensing, printing and production techniques, design trends, sourcing suppliers, promotion, pricing, and much more. For more information, check this out. And to find out more about Heidi and Susie and Rock Scissor Paper, check out this great interview at My Wooden Robot.

I’m not so secretly hoping that this workshop is such as success that Heidi and Susie will take it on the road and hold a workshop in Boston, because I’d be there in a hot minute!

On My Wishlist : Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin

Printing by Hand

Mr. Crave and I will be moving to a new apartment next week, and I’m beyond excited to be going from our current abode, which features a mish-mosh of mismatched carpeting, wall coverings, and fixtures from the mid-70′s — this is not the kind of vintage that translates well to the present day — to a modern place where everything is absolutely neutral and just waiting to be given some personality.

I’m just itching to start some home projects and crafts that will make the new place our own, and Lena Corwin’s new book, Printing by Hand, is at the top of my wishlist of items sure to get the ideas flowing. I’ve been a fan of Lena’s since I first saw her work, and this book looks like it will be fabulous, with projects ranging from custom stamped stationery and pouches to stenciled furniture and screen printed linens and fabric. I can’t imagine that it will be anything less than a wonderful inspiration.

Letterpress Paper Dolls

I’m always jazzed to see collaborations between wonderful independent artisans, and I’m absolutely taken with these letterpress “dolls” created by Thomas Printers in collaboration with illustrator Denise Simon. I think that they would make wonderful gift tags, too, or you could simply frame them for a new twist on an art print. $4.00 each from Thomas Printers.
