Hand Lettered Love #65

This week, I’m featuring just some of the wonderful calligraphers and hand lettering artists that were mentioned, here and on Instagram, in the entries for the hand lettering class giveaway that ended earlier this week. Thanks, again, to everyone who entered and shared their favorites. So much hand lettering awesomeness!

The Lucky Charm Collection at K.becca

Charmies Cereal Box Card Kit Die Cuts | k.becca

I recently released Lucky Charm, a new collection at k.becca that includes digital patterns (in bright and light colorways), digital stamps, and die cutting files that include this cereal-themed box card kit (you can also find this design in the Silhouette shop – design #76088), which I had so much fun designing. Can you tell?

Head on over and check out the whole collection at k.becca, and be sure to have a look at the exclusive clip art set that I put together for my Creative Market shop, too! If you’re looking for some super kawaii-ness for your stationery and invitation designs, then this set is right up your alley. Here’s a preview:

Appointed : Beautiful, American-Made Desktop Products

Appointed : Beautiful, American-Made Stationery

Beauty and functionality need not be at odds with each other, and this is exemplified by Appointed, the new line of desktop paper goods by Suann Song, whose work I’ve long admired.

Appointed is a years-long dream in the making, and the result is an entire suite of thoughtfully designed, beautiful, and 100-percent American made desktop products that include their signature product, the notebook. Funds raised from a just launched Kickstarter campaign will support the building of the Appointed brand and will put their signature product into production.

I look forward to seeing what’s to come for Appointed, whose products are pitch-perfect right down to the last detail.
