Pennie Post Stationery Subscription August Reveal August 15 2014, 0 Comments

The newest Pennie Post collection was inspired by one of the simplest patterns. For this month’s “Seeing Stripes” collection, we used simple line forms to create three very different designs. 
August’s “Seeing Stripes” mailing contained: 


This blank folded note is a mixture of sweet girly florals, and some spunk! I started with a simple line drawing, added watercolor and then had some fun mixing up the pattern with stripes. You can see more about the making of this card here.


A vibrant herringbone pattern makes up this "many thanks" note card. The patterned back side and rounded corners add extra special details. A fun wrap around address label completes this set.


This little enclosure is business card sized and perfect for gift giving!


Our Overlapping Stripes Birthday Card with pale pink stripes is sweet, yet simply sophisticated.


I hope you enjoyed this month's subscription mailing! Who are you going to send your cards to?


You can purchase all of these cards and more at our online stationery boutique. There are sets of 6 available too, so you won't have to worry about running out!

July Reveal: Farmers Market July 10 2014, 3 Comments

Our second crop of cards hit the mailboxes last week! With summer in mid-swing we thought that Pennie Post subscribers would enjoy some fresh fruits and veggies. For this July's “Farmer’s Market” collection, we have harvested a colorful array of cards for you to send to your best buddies.
July’s “Farmers Market” mailing contained:
•  Rad Birthday Card
•  Mon Petit Chou Card
•  Grapefruit, Avocado, and Strawberry Postcard Set
July's Farmers Market Collection


These cheery watercolored mini 5.5"x3.5" postcards are perfect for sending a quick note to a friend.


Mon petit chou means, "my little cabbage" in french. It's a term of endearment similar to "darling" or "sweetheart" used for both males and females. Send this card to your honey, or a sweet child in your life. Also perfect to use as a baby shower card, or to welcome a newborn!


Radishes are often overlooked in the veggie world. I love them in salads, or even plain with a sprinkling of salt! Their pretty color helps liven up any dish. Anyways, enough radish advocating from me. Send this card to the rad birthday boy/girl in your life.


I hope you all enjoyed this month's mailing! If you aren't already subscribed to Pennie Post you can do so here. If you sign up before the 15th of the month your subscription will start with July's Farmers Market mailing(until supplies last). After the 15th your subscription will begin with August's stationery goodies!

These new Farmers Market items will be available in the boutique on the 15th of July.

Who will you be sending this month's cards to? I'd love to know!

June Reveal and the Boutique! June 06 2014, 1 Comment

•  Little Lemon Enclosure

Both the Hi Hula Girl Card and Teal Dotted Notecards came with matching printed envelopes! We love to add detail where we can.

Of course, it is always a better value to subscribe and subscription mailings always ship for free! If you subscribe before the 15th you can still receive the June mailing. Visit the boutique here.
