    San Francisco Center For The Book

    If you follow my Instagram or Facebook you may have caught on that we’re in California.

    Whenever I’m here I do my best to get to events that I only long after on social media when at home in Munich.  Much to my delight the San Francisco Center For The Book kicked off a show last week that is right up my alley.

    Be Enveloped is a very neat-o collection of envelope and envelope paraphernalia curated by Alyson Kuhn and Michael Osbourne.

    Be Enveloped Show in San Francisco

    The exhibit included big envelopes, large envelopes, old envelopes, small envelopes and everything in between. There was even a large envelope making station.

    We got a little punchy in the car on the way there (California traffic! The sole reason that keeps me from moving back). My husband, trying to get a feel for what this ‘envelope show’ was going to be all about asked ‘So, are like the gum makers going to be there?’ My dad explained that the professional term for that was actually ‘mucilage’ (who knew?). We then proceeded to make jokes about mucilage cocktail shots being passed around, and then not being able to speak because our lips would be sealed together after knocking it back.Fortunately instead of envelope gum, very nice wine was served.

    Here are some snaps to enjoy:

  • How To Cut An e.m.papers Printable

    How To Cut An e.m.papers Printable from e.m.papers on Vimeo.

    I created a short video on my Vimeo channel, explaining how to cut an e.m.papers printable card.

    Cutting is easy.

    You'll need 3 things, a cutting surface, a cutting tool and a straight edge. I use a cutting mat, but you can use a piece of cardboard, anything that protects the surface below.

    I also using an X-Acto Knife. I recommend using this type of cutting tool, or a paper cutter to get a clean edge. I don't recommend using scissors. It's very hard to get a straight edge that way.

    Cut on the solid crop marks, not the dotted lines. The dotted line is just for visual reference.

    Lay your template down.

    Cut on the outside of the design, that way if you're hand slips, you won't damage the design of the card. Exhale and cut.

    Don't cut to the edge of the paper, that way the crop marks will stay in place.

    That's it!

    It's always fun to get the pictures from a styled shoot. A few months back, Carolin from Carolin Stürzl Wedding and Eventdesign asked if I'd like to participate in one. Of course I was happy to, and I sent her a set of Calligraphy Monogram invites printed on very light pink, blush colored paper stock.

    Carolin partnered with the wedding photographer Fabian Vuksic to create a wedding picnic inspired photo shoot. It turned out beautiful!
