Step right up to the Paper Carnival!

One of the coolest things about Syracuse, New York, Bride Design's home town, is the great New York State Fair. The entertainment, carnival rides, and even the butter sculpture, change from year to year. But one thing always remains the same: I come home with more fun stuff than I know what to do with (and a bit less cash). And while you might not find prizes, stuffed toys, or a tummy-ache at this carnival, you will likely go home with something way better in my opinion...paper goodies!!

So grab a deep-fried twinkie and check out BrideSupplies, our etsy supply shop. Where, in an effort to keep our studio tidy and your DIY crafting needs met, Bride Design offers our high-quality extras to you at extremely affordable prices. We offer many of our items, like these 6.25 inch Square Cheery Orange Cards, in large quantites. Making these cards ideal to use for creating wedding or large event invitations.

My favorite item in our shop right now? This gorgeous and eco-friendly lokta paper from Nepal.

Next up, fellow New Yorkers Invitations and Beyond! If you liked our overstock of metallic champagne papers, you might just want to pair them with their elegant metallic champagne "champagnium" pocket folds! Love the repousse floral pattern.

If your using this gorgeous champagne color as part of your wedding, I could see using this package of 9 pocket folds to hold the invitation and itinerary for a pre-wedding girls' weekend in Chicago, wine country, or even at a resort or spa. They're that versatile.

Back from Beyond...

Where have I been? there a place called "busy?" If there is, then that is definitely where I've been. Wedding season is in full swing and the studio has been bustling with activity. It's actually really exciting and invigorating!

I've also been busy with my other passion and blog Erin Illustrates! When I'm not creating invitations and wedding stationery, I'm painting and drawing these days. So please, visit me there. And as the year rolls on, I think you'll find that my passion for paper and illustration will meld further...resulting in some new ideas, products, and growth for me as designer and for the face of Bride Design. I can't wait to see where it leads!
