Halloween Party Invitations, Part 1

Throwing a kick butt Halloween bash this year? How about some rockin’ Halloween party invites to go with that bash? I found so many awesome invites that this is going to be a two-parter, so stay tuned for the second part, coming right up after this one!

Okay, so these aren’t ready to order invitations, but I just had to share these unique, handmade Halloween invitations from Brooklyn Limestone, which are some of the most awesome Halloween invites I’ve ever seen. I mean, they come with their own stake! That, alone, makes them kick butt.

Campbell Raw Press 2011 Calendars

Campbell Raw Press just released their new fall and winter collection, which is filled with gorgeous goodies, including three new 2011 calendars. I love the idea of their Book of Days, which is a journal-type calendar with room for you to make note of memories and details that take place on each day. This is perfect for keeping track of milestones and special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. The Book of Days is available in three cover pattern options: Floral on Black or Dark Green Mums chiyogami (Japanese silkscreens), or Sky Charts (vintage pattern, Italian silkscreen).

Campbell Raw’s 2011 Letterpress Handbound Book Calendar is absolutely gorgeous! This book calendar was a labor of love, evident in details like the intricate Coptic stitch binding, handwritten calendar lettering, and background hand drawn vine patterns. Each calendar is printed on soft bamboo stock and covered with chiyogami paper. Two blank pages follow every two months of the calendar and are great spaces to make notes about special occasions and milestones.

Also available are letterpress wall calendars, also featuring hand lettering and hand drawn vine patterns letterpress printed onto soft bamboo paper. This beautiful calendar would make a lovely wall accent, in addition to being a useful reference throughout the year.

Also available in the fall and winter collection are several fantastic holiday cards, which I’ll be talking about more later in the season, and handbound journals and albums that will make wonderful holiday gifts. You can check out the entire collection at the Campbell Raw Press website.

If you missed it, be sure to check out part one of my spooktacular Halloween party printable roundup. And now, without further ado, here’s part two!

Linnette from Paper Glitter always creates some of the most kawaii printable party kits around, and this Halloween Party Kit is no exception. Love the cute spiders (and all of the other spookies, of course), and that’s saying a lot because I’m terrified of spiders!
