Happy weekend to all! If you're joining me here from for design's sake and wanted to see a bit more of my new card, thank you SO much! Yesterday my awesome friend Amanda took me to her school's letterpress studio so I could get my hands dirty and be creative. I can't even describe how good it felt, rolling that press over the lead letters...a designer's heaven! I wanted to do something bright and cheery, so sunny yellow it was! {seeing as it was super snowy and grey outside at the time}

Also, I love this card so much that I want to share it with all of you! It will be up for sale on my Etsy shop as of March 1st. Paired with a raspberry envelope {not shown here} it's sure to brighten anyone's day! Take note, there's a limited number of cards so better try and snatch up one fast!

I have been trying to surround myself with inspiration lately as so many projects are going on and endless ideas need to be made. Last weekend I headed to the Cambridge Antique market for some cheering up and hope that I would find something really awesome. I DID! Among a few other little cool trinkets, the best find was a vintage rubber stamping set. All organized in a beautiful wooden box is the entire alphabet, numbers, other glyphs and flowery end notes. I couldn't believe I found this, all in working order too! I have yet to figure out what the font is, but am so excited to use it in upcoming stationery! How beautiful is that stamp FOR? This has definitely sparked some inspiration!

Hope your weekend brings some ideas too!

Sometimes I can't help it, my nerdy font loving self comes out to play! I am in love with the font family Neutraface. Delicate and girly, Neutraface Slab is probably one of my favourites. The thin member of the family matches nicely with thick sans serif fonts and looks good in every colour imaginable, and the chunky member is fun and retro. I am desperate for a new project to give me an excuse to use it...

Fonts used: Neutraface Slab Thin, Neutraface 2 medium & Burgues Script
