National Stationery Show 2011 (Part II)

May 26

Enough of the small talk – let’s get this party started, shall we? One of my first stops and biggest loves at the show this year was Fig. 2 Design Studio. Claudia’s work is playful and celebratory, with bright neon colors, fabulous calligraphy from Meant To Be Calligraphy and a joyful spirit.

Sugarcube Press is a long time favorite of mine. Their designs are a bit quirky, a lot tongue in cheek and the perfect balance of great color and awesome type. Decked out in letterpress bunting and a spray of paper flowers, I also loved their booth design this year.

Next up, I loved getting to finally meet Rebekah of Wild Ink Press in person at the show this year. Such a lovely lovely lady! Inspired by beautiful textiles and world travels, her debut show collection was pitch perfect.

Love that little tractor card! Remind you of this birthday party a little bit? I also love the goodies Rebekah was giving away – too cute!

Another booth, another friend! This time I was off to see Carrie of Anemone Letterpress. Neon was definitely a recurring theme this year and Carrie was rockin’ it in style. I love her cute, light-hearted illustrations and witty greeting cards. A little wit goes a long way in my world.

Perfect for hostess gifts and parties, I was digging the letterpress wine bottle tags and gift tags that Jodi from Paisley Tree Press was showing this year. Seriously. Show up at a party with a bottle of something nice and one of these fun little tags and you’ll be the star of the show.

Stay tuned – there is much more to come!
