My Fig Tree

One of the joys of working at home, especially in the spring and summer, is that when I need a break I can just pop out onto our terrace.

At the moment my beloved fig tree has started bearing fruit. A little secret: I don't even like figs that much, but I can't contain my excitement when they start showing up. If you follow me on me on Pinterest you'll notice the uptick in fig-related recipe pins (sorry!)

I've gotten started on the relaunch of e.m.papers (logo, new shop) as I've alluded to before. My big hope is that the store will go live before the figs are ready for harvest!

Sneak Peek: New e.m.papers Shop Design

I'm sure it won't look exactly like this by the time we're done, but here is the 'working file' for the new e.m.papers shop design:

I'd ask what you think, but the comments feature on this blog stopped working (one of the reasons we're moving off of this leaky ship!) In any case I hope you like it...and I hope I still do by the time we get to launch!

More Wedding Menu Templates

A couple of weeks ago I shared some updated images I created of our wedding menus and promised some more since they're not live in the shop yet.

We've got over 20 printable wedding menu template designs and these are just a few, but they're some of my favorites:

I tend towards minimalism. When I first created the design for the Simple Heart wedding invitation design series, I was concerned that the design might be a little too simple. Luckily it's turned out to be quite popular (right now it's only available in the e.m.papers Etsy shop)

This menu template, part of the Morning Glory wedding design suite is from one of the very first e.m.papers wedding invitation designs, but still looks fresh:

There are a lot of different ways you can use our menu templates; you can place them in card holder stands for each table, or you can rest them on top of the plates at each individual place setting like so:

This image is of our pretty, romantic floral printable menu card. You also see the matching table number tent and printable wedding place card.

I don't want to bore you, so this is just a few. You can see the our printable menu templates section to see the rest of what we've got.

Wedding Menu Templates for Last Minute 'Day of' Wedding Items
Tuesday, 29 July 2014 11:18

We are in the thick of wedding season! Save the Dates and Invitations have long since been sent out and now people need 'day of' items for their weddings; wedding programs, seating charts, escort cards and wedding menus.

I recently updated photos of our printable wedding menu templates (though I don't have them live in the shop yet, that'll have to wait until after the relaunch!) Previously they were a little too small to really get a good idea of what the design looked like. Here are some of our most popular:

wedding menu template from e.m.papers - Kate & Wills

This wedding menu template 'Kate & Wills' utlizes simple vintage cutlery image and a sophisticated type treatment. The goal was to communicate the elegance and tradition of the royal wedding.

This menu template, part of the 'Silhouette' wedding design suite is a modern take on the cutlery on a menu concept:

A couple of points about our printable menu templates:

Each dinner menu template comes two to a page. All you need to do is edit your text, print the menu out (ideally, on card stock) and than cut down the middle.

printable menu template 'GongXi' from e.m.papers

You get two versions of each menu card. One version has separate fields for each meal course and the second version, which contains 'one field' in the file name, contains one large text field. The reason for this is that perhaps your menu text doesn't fit neatly into each separate field for the courses. In the 'one field' version of the menu template you can edit and break text with a lot more flexibility.

I'll post more of the new menu images soon. In the meantime, you visit our full collection of printable menu templates to see what we've got.

How To Make a Printable Wedding Invitation - Short Video
Wednesday, 02 July 2014 12:08

I just spent the morning making this short video demonstrating how e.m.papers printable wedding invitation templates work.

I really tried to keep it short and to the point and under one minute (I find I start getting bored 30 seconds into instructional videos!). Since I tend to ramble when I talk, I opted to create the spot using just text and video, with an upbeat little ditty as the soundtrack.

Hope you like it!
