A friend invited me to a birthday lunch this week. I wanted to bring a little gift tailored for her -- so here is Ame's stationery. I went to bed one night thinking about what I wanted to make and woke up with the design bubbling up and ready to go.
True confession: I made the first one before I brushed my teeth. Then I giggled happily and did my ablutions before whipping up the other four. Aren't you glad I share these things? Speaking of pearly whites, there are a couple of pearls blinging up the focal point. They are hard to see in the picture.
Anyone recognize that gorgeous vintage-y paper? That's Soho Subway, showing its less-mod side. You've seen me use this paper many times. It's absolutely my favorite this year, because I've found it works for pretty much everything. If you don't have this paper, try this layout with what you do have. I'm guessing it'll be cute no matter what!
The die-cut focal point is from Chalk Talk, my other go-to from the current idea book. Again, useful for very modern designs as well as more vintage.
Paper and card:

- Soho Subway, cut to 5" x 3 3/4"
- Vanilla and Espresso scraps for the focal point
