Thank you for all of the love and support this little corner of the internet has received over the past several years. As friends and family members were getting married, their weddings fueled the inspiration for this blog. But as seasons of life change, my focus, along with those nearest and dearest, shifted away from the wedding planning stage and I began to neglect this blog.

I have decided to indefinitely retire Calligraphy by Shannon in an effort to pour my attention into my lifestyle blog The Scribble Pad where I will be merging past and future inspiration boards and parties. You will still be able to place orders for calligraphy, custom invitations, and hand stamped items through my etsy shop. And as always, you can stay in touch with me under my moniker, The Scribble Pad on my blog, etsy shop, facebook, and even twitter! I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you.

Embossing at Home

It is incredible how a simple invitation can be enhanced and embellished to obtain an expensive professional look.
See the invitation on the left. I printed plain black text on a plain purple note card. A few minutes of rubber stamping, embossing powder and the power of heat: An entirely new invitation that actually looks exciting!
All items are available at Paper-Source

Crepe Paper

A while back I posted instructions for making a custom "floral" monogram out of crepe paper. Well, How About Orange has outdone me. The recent post: 5 things to make with crepe paper will inspire you to make these adorable pomemanders as well as other great crepe paper crafts including leis and pom-poms! Be sure to check it out!

4th of July in Kennebunkport

We treked to Maine for a wonderful weekend in Kennebunkport and a wedding at the Fransiscan Monastery in Kennebunk, Maine. The wedding was beautiful and I cannot wait to show you professional pictures! But we have to wait until the end of the month. Sigh.

For now I will leave you with a custom map the couple gave to all of their out of town guests listing their favorite places:
