Free printable stationery

free printable stationery
I was looking at my blog and Instagram feed and noticed the absurd amounts of pink I’ve been using lately. Though my color of the moment is pink, there is a limit to how much it needs to be used. And I’ve far exceeded it. For this I apologize. SO, to usher in a new month I thought we should see a new palette. 
Are your eyeballs relieved?! 
Illustrator Victoria Riza and I collaborated on this set of stationery that you can download and print from your home as a freebie. Consider it a consolation gift for the tragedy we call “the changing of the seasons.” Sigh

Spring pastel tablesetting

Yesterday I showed how to make the paper tulip centerpiece and I thought I’d provide an idea on how to display it in a beautiful setting for your spring celebration, whether it be your outdoor Easter dinner or Mother’s Day brunch. Wouldn’t pastels be so lovely? I used to cringe at pastels but now I find them so beautiful, especially when combined with some deeper tones like the colors in the flowers and the ombre candle holders I decorated. I’ll show a few of the DIYs later in the day, but for now, here are some ways to celebrate the spring.
TIP: I picked up all of the tableware from Ikea. They have the loveliest colors right now. Mint plates and bowls, pink and white candle holders, a beautiful white pitcher. AND, they are so so cheap! I have a thing for plates so I kind of think you can never have too many!

TIP: For place settings, I bought these little wooden eggs and put each person’s monogram on it. I’ll be doing a DIY on it later today.

TIP: Melissa Esplin of I Still Love You created a beautiful “Happy Easter” sign that works perfectly in a basket. OR, you can make it mini and stick it in some Easter eggs (like she did here). OR print it off really huge and use it as a decoration. I love her work. Download the free template here.

TIP: I’ll be providing a DIY later today on these candle votives, which I LOVE! I think they’d also be perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, and birthdays, doncha think?

Stay tuned for the DIYs on how to make this happen.

I met the clever Alana Jones Mann at Alt in January and she gave me her adorable business cards which were mini cakes made from make-up sponges. I nearly died of cuteness overload. She referred me to the site where she got the idea, She Knows, which made these mailable birthday cake slices, which nearly took me to my grave. How ingenious are these?!
I’ve been wanting to do something with these cake/pie boxes that Steph Modo makes for her shop, A La Modo, for awhile now so I decided to put the two together and make a birthday cake care package. I have a cake box template and a little party envelope kit template that you can stick in the box and ship off. How awesome would this be to receive for your birthday???

Oscar Party rosettes

rosettes for 2014 Oscar nominees
Last year I asked Michele Brummer Everett to create some Oscar rosettes (see last year’s) and they turned out so adorably that I had to update them with this year’s nominees. They are perfect for your Oscar party or just to add a dash of festiveness. They can even be used for a little game idea, which I’ll give below.

To get the full tutorial and old colorways, click here. And download the new colorways and pictures here.

To remind you of this year’s 2014 Oscar nominees: Amy AdamsSandra BullockJudy DenchCate BlanchettMeryl Streep, Christian Bale, Bruce Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew McConaughey

Game idea:
Have you ever played the “guess who” game? Pin this rosette to the back of each person. The guest has to figure out who they are by asking other people yes or no questions. First one to get it gets a prize. Bingo.

ALSO, did you know the official Oscar website has a Party Kit? Check it out here for more ideas.

Print & make origami business card holder

photography by Trisha Zemp 
Gah! Alt Summit, the annual blogging conference I mentioned the other day, is in less than two weeks and I have so much to do like make business cards. I have a temporary one that does the job for now and needed a way to protect it when it’s swirling around my large bag so I decided to make a simple one doing origami. I thought others out there might benefit from one too so I made a printable version you can download for free. The steps are super easy. It fits the standard 3.5×2″ card. It also fits a standard gift card the same way.
