K&C Wedding Week


This is going to be my one & only post of the week. Hush now, you'll be okay. :)

My sister gets married on Saturday & I'm helping with nearly everything having to do with paper. Above is a little peek at their Rehearsal Dinner menus. Instead of having them letterpressed, I went back to how L&H got started: rubber stamps. I love love love rubber stamps. I took this little fishie design from their Rehearsal Dinner invitation (which was letterpressed) and had it made into a rubber stamp. I printed the menu text on fine Italian paper using our HP printer and hand-stamped each menu in a light blue archival ink. I don't think I'll ever tire of the rubber stamped look - how the hand is so obviously behind each impression. Bryn from Paperfinger did the calligraphy you see at the top. A touch of the hand in the text bumps it up a notch.

If you find yourself missing the L&H blog, follow me on Twitter. I can't give away too many details before the big day, but I'll be tweeting here & there - or as much as the bride will let me:)

Have a great week!
