Paper Crush, Vol. I

I'm starting a new series today called Paper Crush. I am pretty obsessed with all things paper and I have a growing 'Paper Goods' Pinterest board to prove it. Old new, colorful, white, DIYed, letterpressed, embossed, I love it all. I hoard paper a bit, nothing that is cause for intervention, but my desk drawers are full of stationary and cards, a collection that has been growing through the years. I'm not sure what I'm saving it all for (if paper becomes the new currency, I'll be a millionaire) but it looks so pretty and pristine organized in my drawers. So I thought us paper lovers could celebrate our {small} obsession here on the blog...a healthy environment.

First up for today is some simple wedding placecards...

These kraft beauties were designed by Annemarie Buckley of Scout's Honor Co. I am pretty convinced that no matter the occasion, kraft paper is the way to go. Wouldn't you agree? It's so versatile. Annemarie did a great job pairing the black, bold type with these old-fashioned looking tags.

Chalkboard paint is all the rage right now but to incorporate it into customizable hearts cards by Bailey Doesn't Bark is pretty genius. The cards are blank inside so you can use them for virtually any occasion or holiday: birthdays, Valentine's Day, 'thinking of you' cards. And if you are blessed with pretty handwriting, the cards can become a work of art.

Featured on the beautiful blog Frolic, this simple DIY was actually a project put together by the talented Annemarie Buckley as well. She is one fabulous lady! This is another set of placecards and although the cards are quite colorful and inspired by Pantone paint chips, I'm in love with the effortless mini envelopes. Also from kraft paper, the natural color scheme of this paper project shines light on the sweet hand calligraphy.

What paper things have caught your eye lately? Anything specific that has encouraged you to buy or DIY?
