From my black & white Kimballs to my flutter sleeve dress. From my fave bateau top (yes, I’ve thrown away all caution against wearing horizontal stripes while, gasp, pregnant) to paper straws, I just ADORE anything with stripes!
Imagine my delight when I came across this Garden Stripes Invitation Suite by J. Bartyn (via dognbird) in my recent search for some stripe-y goodness. The stylish suite– a collaboration between Annie at Marry You Me and former Martha Stewart art director and designer Cambria Evans– is amazingly FREE (!) and comes complete with invite, favor tags, table numbers, etc. in various yummy colors. The robin’s egg blue is definitely calling my name. Quick, pop on over J. Bartyn’s and download yours!

L-O-V-E this! Now we can all channel our inner Monet and create our own watercolor masterpiece with this DIY technique from Kate of The Lettered Set. The above example was done using a stencil printed from a free online clip art source. But you could always use your own silhouette profile or any favorite phrases or illustrations as stencils and personalize some stationery, decor, or gifts– and not just for the wedding either (hello Mother’s Day notecards!). Ahh, can you imagine the possibilities?

An easy and inexpensive trick for a multitude of things– Fabric as paper! Turn your favorite vintage fabric (a small sample or scrap would do) into envelope liners with this tutorial from Posie Gets Cozy. You basically cut the fabric into an envelope liner shape using a template and then scan it in for more color copies. No fancy paper necessary. Check it out!
