Bohemian Wedding Suite

One of my favorite things to do in the whole world is oogle paper, obviously. While I prefer to see it in person so I can touch it and stare at it, I've recently started perusing the internet for new patterns and designs. The worst is when I find those little 6X6 pads (which clearly isn't big enough to make a 5X7 invite) and I fall in love with some of the samples and have to wait to order a full sheet on the internet. Now that's a serious real world problem.

I guess the point of my little story here is even though I'm a paper connoisseur, I always go back to some familiar patterns and this suite is a perfect example. I've been getting this paper at Michael's for almost 2 years now and I'm obsessed with the pattern. It's very bohemian but subtle with the colors. I made some bridal shower invitations using this paper and I'm sure this is not the last you will see of it.

If it gets discontinued I will cry. For a few days. Then something else will catch my eye and be added to the favorites rotation ;)

Paper Bag Invitation Suite

Well, what do you know? Another paper bag design! I really wish you could touch and feel this invitation because it's so nice and fluffy, for lack of a better word. The crumpled bag border adds the perfect dimension and isn't this paper great? It reminds me of the 70s for some reason. It's funky and has such a great color scheme: coral, purple, teal and brown.

I have another suite to come later this week that includes a new take on a familiar paper so stay tuned!
