Anticipating Thanksgiving

One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is going around the table and stating what we're most thankful for. Admittedly it's a little cheesy and sort of cliché, but it is so easy to lose sight of giving thanks in the midst of football, food prep and catching up with friends & family. If you love this tradition too {or want to give it a try this year} we designed some festive watercolor printables that you can cut up and pass out to start getting people in the TRUE Thanksgiving spirit. 

Printable is available in both eggplant {shown} and burnt orange! Enjoy AND happy planning!! 

Pretty Paper: Hilary & Sean

We're convinced that stripes will never go out of style. We've loved them for years and we continue to get excited over every opportunity we get to incorporate this motif into custom stationery. While using playful fonts, Hilary & Sean's save the date maintained a clean, preppy look with a striped frame paired with the crest of the country club where the wedding would take place. My favorite part however, is that white foil stamped return address on the blue envelope!!

What do you think? Are you a fellow lover of stripes?!

Happy Friday!!

Autumn Essentials & Watercolor Updates

Mondays should be reserved for positive talk, good music, lots of coffee and ALL THINGS cute. Of all days in the week, this one can be pretty rough, right?! Well in honor of this dreary fall day in Boston, we wanted to share this suuuuper cute watercolor work of art by Jones Design Company. We have been working on some watercolor pieces in office lately {for holiday & wedding alike!} and this print has been helping us embrace the season AND this art medium.

Isn't it the cutest?! To download & print your own super copy to frame, visit their website {here}!!

Here's to hoping you have a lovely & productive Monday! 

New Website + Ready to Order Line!!!

The day is finally here, friends, and it feels like Christmas in the Paper Moss office!!! We've been logging some long hours on a few behind the scenes projects and today, we finally get to share them with you!! We're happy to say that our brand spanking new website is up and running... fresh with photos of our recent work, detailed descriptions of our process and a crisp new look for the blog, which you're obviously seeing right now! :) Here is a quick peek at our new home page but PLEASE check it out for yourself...

The exciting news doesn't end there. In fact, we think it's just the beginning! We mentioned awhile back that this fall we would be launching a ready to order line and alas, The Collection can be found on a shop attached to our new website.

While our true passion is still custom design, we're happy to now offer a more budget friendly option with a quicker turn around time, for couples that don't have their heart set on the custom process. Our new collection has the same Paper Moss style & quality, the same luxe paper and several customizable options such as ink color, colored envelopes, wording, etc. Check it out on our shop and be sure to let us know what you think!!

Thanks for sharing in our excitement, friends! We can just hardly keep it together! :)

Something to sip on

We're kicking off the week with sharing a sweet recipe that we spotted over on the Made By Girl blog. If you haven't tried Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need to drop what you're doing and GO MAKE THIS RECIPE NOW! :) What is more comforting than sipping on a sweet, spicy, chocolatey beverage while curled up?! That is my favorite place to come back down to earth & get inspired, in the midst of a busy start of a week...

Happy Monday, lovelies!!

Pretty Paper: Tiffany & Alan

We recently had a batch of our recent Save the Dates and invitation suites photographed by the lovely & talented Erin McGinn Photography! Words can't even describe how excited we are to share some of our recent work with you all and we're kicking it off today. You probably know how much we love mixing fonts so designing a text heavy, modern Save the Date was a blast to work on. Tiffany & Alan wanted to keep a neutral palette and we're just in love with the rich charcoal & natural paper combination!

We'll share their invitation suite soon too, but want to hold off until after their big day... which is this weekend! Congrats to Tiffany & Alan!!!

On another note, don't forget to order your Paper Moss Holiday cards ASAP! Check out our 2014 Holiday designs and order by November 17th!!

Font love Friday!

We have been working our butts off on holiday cards lately and in the process, we've stumbled across some killer new fonts. My particular favorite is the oh-so stylish Elsie, but it's hard not to be intrigued by South Rose that has characteristics of stained glass. :) Which is your favorite?

Have a fabulous weekend, friends!
