Roses are red
Violets are blue
Customers, please be our Valentine
Each and every one of you!
We are really feeling the love for Friday’s favourites, and not just because it’s coming up to Valentine’s Day! It’s down to all the stunning customer creations we’ve seen on social media this week. Thanks so much guys, you’re truly all our Valentine (although buying you all a rose and box of chocs might be a push).
Perfect for the self-deprecating lovers out there, Clio’s inside message reads; “You can take me out anytime’, in reference to the lovely bin bag featured. Quite frankly, if someone took the rubbish out for us on a regular basis, they could take us out every night. Great job once again by London based illustrator Clio!
Wedding stationery and design studio ginger is the new black has been busy releasing a number of new wedding stationery collections, including the stylish and chic marble collection, as well as this tropical number featured! Kind of wish we were going to some weddings abroad now after seeing this bright and beautiful creation…invites welcome!
Designer and illustrator Ami-Lou Sharpe is the brains and brawn behind Sosoyoyo. Utilising her passion for drawing, Ami-Lou has just launched her vibrant kiddies brand, creating prints, soft toys, greeting cards and pins. Her aim is to create happy products that make people smile. Aim achieved Ami-Lou!
Fern and Field, who hire beautiful outdoor spaces for weddings, created a ‘hue explosion’ bridal shoot which was featured in the Rock n Roll Bride blog. Inspired by Mario Testino and his dramatic photoshoots, Fern & Field incorporated drama and colour into every element, including the stationery of course!
Continuing the bright theme we seem to having is freelance designer and illustrator Joanne Hawker. An animal lover, scribbler and floral fan, Joanne is a passionate scribbler whose love of being creative is so strong even her return address labels are stunning! If you love personalised pocket mirrors, stationery and cards, Joanne is your girl.
If you’re on a diet, apologies, because these cakes look SCRUMMY. Hertfordshire based Lauren transforms into Betsy Buttercream afterschool and at weekends hosting cupcake parties where the little ones can decorate vanilla sponge cakes, and even decorate their own chef’s apron! There’s even a rosette for the best cupcake awarded! Oh and they got these invites printed by us. Sorry the cake distracted us!
We all know what vibrant and beautiful birds peacocks are, so job well done Kimberley on capturing the wonderful details in your illustrated cards. She’s also illustrated a number of other animals for her new calendar which is worth a look. She’s basically a drawing Doctor Dolittle with the range she offers in her own little animal kingdom!
Zach’s birthday party invitations are all ready for some bowling, albeit five months early thanks to Fruitcake Lou. We’re sure he’ll have a lovely day if the invites are anything to go by!
Anyone still on that January health kick? Well if you are, Corinne has a treat for you. She’s made these veg-tastic flat sheets which will become an edition of 30 concertina books once she’s folded and bound everything together. Corinne said she was super impressed with the print quality (cheers Corinne!) and everyone, keep an eye out for those finished books!
A bit of monochrome mastery now thanks to London-based, France born Melanie Johnsson. Travel is what inspires Melanie the most, and she finds octopuses amazing, which when you think about it, is a valid point. Melanie designs for exciting brands, passionate people and love birds getting hitched. We love how her envelope liners add an extra pop of excitement!
Bakewell based stationery addict Vik Stronge has been super busy with Valentine’s orders. She’s been posting them out with these lovely thank you notes, which is just another way she shows how much her customers mean to her. Her talent for branding and typography is ridiculously good, and her Instagram is well worth a rifling for inspiration.
