V day

V day, originally uploaded by vinceletterpress.

With Valentines Day just around the corner, what better way to say "I love you" than a thoughtful and lovingly handmade card from VINCE.

Available now from selected retailers and now in my online shop.

This card is a standard A6 card (148mm x 105mm folded) one colour letterpress printed, it is a very interactive card, where the lovely receiver of your card can create their own message. The card is blank inside and the message is simple. Fill in the dots to create a love heart. This card is called "Loving you is easy"

Healsville Sanctuary and Australia's endangered species

In 2009 I was involved in this very exciting initiative from Craft Victoria.

Healsville Sanctuary were looking for some new products for their Zoo's shop. The brief was to create a product that was also educational in sharing with people the plight of 6 Australian Endangered Species; The Mountain Pigmy Possum, The Helmeted Honey Eater, The Orange Bellied Parrot, The Southern Corroboree Frog, The Spotted Tree Frog and The Tasmanian Devil. Each of these critters future hangs in the balance and I was very honoured to be a part of such a project.

Every card tells a little story about each animal and is made from my gorgeous seeded paper, this paper is embedded with Lemon Scented Bottlebrush, so following the instructions on the back of the card, it can be planted - it just keeps on giving!!

These little cards have been so popular at the Sanctuary, Healsville recently made another order of stationery. These cards are sold exclusively with Healsville, but I do think it is well worth the trip to pick up one of these very special cards.

My invitations

My invitations, originally uploaded by vinceletterpress.

Here is a little taste of my style for our wedding invitations. I used a handmade Italian paper it had these gorgeous deckled edges, so there was no cutting to be done. Each piece inside the envelope was a different colour, the invitation was this blue black, our information card was a lime green, our wishing well card was a marsh mellow pink and the RSVP cards were a steely silver and this was all bundled together with this gorgeous french stripe ribbon. Our envelopes were a beautiful pale blue and even though there wasn't much blue throughout the wedding, I loved that we had our "something blue" delivered to each and every guest.

We're married!

Running my own little business and months of planning have left me with little and even no time to tell everyone about my own wedding.
It was an amazing day, leading up to it was one of the most stressful times of my life, being a creative person, I put my heart and soul into every little detail.

I've got so much to share, including a list of amazing suppliers I would love to recommend to people. Months of beautiful letterpress work I have been doing and some really amazing projects with Healsville Sanctuary and other beautiful organisations, some new VINCE stockists, some new stationery to add to my range and all the little details from my own wedding - especially the invitations and all the fun I had doing my own letterpress work.

I will be back soon with so much more to share.
