paper + letterpress
Paper is definitely my favorite medium! Here is a paper project you can customize in so many ways and you probably already have all the materials. These blocks are great to have on hand for baby showers, birthday parties, holidays, etc. You can use them over and over again, just put useful letters on them and make them in a color palette you love. This pink variety would decorate an adorable second birthday for a little girl!

I’m still a huge fan of sending out paper invitations. I love all these cute designs from Tiny Prints. Digital printing is a great way to save time & money when I’m planning a party. Tiny Prints has a ton of great designs to choose from and once you order, they arrive in the mail very fast. Before my kids head back to school (so soon!) I think it would be fun to personalize their notebooks and order a few classroom tags for all their supplies. Here are a few of my favorite supplies in case you want to plan your own party before summer ends:

We had our first craft event of the summer at my studio this last weekend. The first was the calligraphy event sponsored by Bing. My friend Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls taught the class. I love Maybelle’s teaching style and she thinks of every little detail so every little part of the class is so beautiful. She makes everyone a calligraphy starter kit including custom-made ink holders, black ink, a pen holder, nib and a practice book and sheets. (See all the pictures below!) We’ve still got a few spots left in our upcoming Back to School Screenprinting Bonanza! and Woodworking classes!
