Make a homemade card for the wedding couple

I haven’t show a wedding DIY in awhile. Here’s my latest for Brooklyn Bride. Short, sweet, simple. Just how we like, eh?

Smell the roses on Valentine’s day

I was honored to be asked to make some gift toppers for Terrain for the holiday season and I decided to keep the flower momentum going for Valentine’s day. I handcrafted some roses in 5 colors–off-white, lavendar, yellow, light pink, grey–and topped them off with some handpainted details on the leaf and bloom. They’re perfect to top a gift or give as a single flower to your love–romantic or platonic.

Order them today on the The House That Lars Built Etsy shop. Choose from Pink, purple, off-white, grey, yellow.

Design + flowers + Life + my shop + paper / Monday, 19 Nov 2012

Limited Edition!

If you’ve been wondering why things have been a bit spotty on the blog recently it’s because I’ve been on overload producing a few batches of these paper flower gift toppers. Here’s the story: I was approached by Terrain (a sister company of Urban Outfitters) a few months back to develop some limited edition gift topper flowers as well as my 2013 Language of Flowers calendar. Several hundred handmade paper flowers later they are now available for purchase and I’m so pleased to finally spill the beans! Now, I had high hopes (and was a bit delusional) that I could do it all on my on. Readers, I was insane. There are some times in life where you need a bit of help and I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m just so thankful for the help of my assistants Karen who has gone above and beyond, also Josh, my sister-in-law who came in on some Saturdays to help cut, and Paul, who realized that his gift in life is not cutting flowers but came to help anyway! Thank you thank you thank you! You can choose between a poppy, tulip, and ranunculus.

 For now, you can order them on Terrain’s website. I will be releasing them on my Etsy shop in early 2013 (2013?! wha?!?!)

Brooklyn Bride + Design + downloads + paper + Projects / Thursday, 6 Sep 2012

Printable monogram stationery

I made some monogram stationery for Brooklyn Bride last week. You can download all 26 letters of the alphabet and then print off the letter of your choice to make your own stationery set. All you have to do is cut it out. Easy beazy. The cards are a standard 4 bar size (3 1/2 x 4 7/8″) so if you find an envelope at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8″ you’re golden. I had such a ball pairing the colors together. My kind of relaxation! Click here for the Brooklyn Bride’s download.
