Family Stationery

Last week I finished some stationery for a dear friend of mine (who gives me carte blanche to design what I would like).  I know that one of her favorite colors is read, so I usually try to incorporate red somewhere.  She needed stationery for her family.  Then her 2 girls are learning to write, so she wanted some fill-in notes for them.  For the family stationery I used red and a greyish-blue ink and then printed a corresponding envelope liner.  Then for the girls I tried to do something a little more grown-up for the 1st grader (lavender and grey ink on the note card and a grey envelope).  Then I designed something a little more whimsical for the pre-schooler (hearts) - her birthday is in December, so I thought the red would be a nod to the holidays too.  Well, this family will be set for a while!

One Week Remains

Where has this month gone?  There is only one week remaining of the engraved stationery sale.  I was going to try to post more to tempt everyone into buying some stationery, but I haven't done that (ugh).  Well, I hope these goodies brighten your day and make you think about ordering some stationery!

Free Engraving Plates from Arzberger

I LOVE a stationery sale!  I seriously consider buying stationery every time one of my vendors has a sale - that is if I don't actually just go for it.  The month of September Arzberger is give you the engraving plates for FREE when you order engraved stationery (each engraving plate is usually $50).  The name plates, monogram plates and return address plates will all be free if you order stationery this month.  In addition, they've just come out with some fabulous new colors of card stock and envelope liners.  I have TONS of great samples, but you can also see samples of their work on Facebook and Instagram.  I'll post more samples this month.  With all of this being said, if you are in the market for stationery, you should definitely take advantage of this sale.
