Vintage Inspired Stationery

Friday, July 6th, 2012

This month is Letter Writing Month here at The Paper Place; and who doesn’t love getting a little something special sent to them in the mail? I recently made some vintage inspired stationery for some dear pen-pals of mine.

I think that the Gampi Silk Tissue is probably one of my favourite papers right now.  It kind of reminds me of old onion skin paper, which I love.  I backed it with a piece of cardstock, attaching the two with Airmail Divine Twine. I used small rubber stamps for the text; which remind me of a vintage typewriter.  On the back cardstock I used navy Par Avion stamps by Cavallini (available instore).  To finish I used washi tape to create an airmail pattern on a plain white envelope. For postage I used vintage Canadian stamps from SendMoreMail (both available instore).


I also cut a piece of Kingin Stationery in half then stitched it to some colourful cardstock to brighten it up a little bit.  I thought that such a lovely handmade paper deserved a handwritten letter. I love its small gold flecks and the handmade edge.




You Say “Goodbye”, I say “Hello”!

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Sometimes you just feel like saying hello. These cards fit my recent letter-writing mood perfectly. I adore the nostalgic designs. Remember rotary dial telephones? I sure do!

I made little packets of sweet dot stickers and tucked them into the envelopes. I love getting tiny surprises enclosed in letters, so here is hoping my penpals will be delighted too!

The letters were completed with current Queen postage, stamped with vintage-looking rubber stamps and sealed with gold and white striped washi tape. I’m off to the mailbox now.

Happy writing!

A Season for Letters–Send More Mail this Fall!

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Summer was holding on for quite some time but it seems as though autumn has officially arrived in Toronto. This season is letter writing season. Break out the hot chocolate, big band music and colourful stationery and you’re set!

I fell head over heels for these little animal musicians! I rummaged around my vintage stamp collection until I came upon some elk, bear and whale stamps. A well-suited match I’d say! These letters are now on their way to friends in Ontario, California and England.
