Sycamore Street Press 2011

I love seeing all the new stationery that is released this time of year during the National Stationery Show.

  Kirk and Eva, of Sycamore Street Press fame, stayed home with baby Ingrid this time, but they've been really busy putting together their new line.  I truly feel blessed for the opportunity to work with them.  This year, I added three new art prints and three new cards to the Pop Line and we're working on a few surprises to be released later this year that I can't wait to tell you about.

 You would laugh if you saw the first rough drafts of the So Happy Together poster and the You Make Me Happy poster because they were so bad.  Maybe a post for another time?  Luckily, the designs came together at the last minute and Kirk did such a beautiful job printing them.

Can we talk about how complicated lining up the plates for the camera print is?  We weren't sure that it could be done because plates that big are hard to line up and there is no room for error there.  We all held our breaths and crossed our fingers and Kirk really pulled it off!

It's funny to think that people out there ordering these may see them in person before I do because we've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to get together with Kirk & Eva to check out all the new prints. I get a few prints each time Sycamore Street Press prints one of my designs so I usually have my own little stash of all of my designs (and I often trade them for items from the Lark and Folk lines so you should see the letterpress hoard I have.  Heaven I tell you!) 

If it wasn't too late at night I'd be tempted to post all the new additions to the Folk and Lark lines too because they really are amazing.  Here's a sneak peak of a sweet new poster from the Lark line that I'm excited to get a copy of.

And I can't believe the detail on the new Folk series of fruit art prints. Eva's drawing skills always leave me in awe.

I work with such a talented group.  You can pop over to check them out here.

Ahh! Thanks! That's what you get when you post at 2:00. My posts have been riddled with typos lately in my hurry to get to bed.

I LOVE all of your designs for SSP! I ordered the alphabet and number posters for my baby boy's room, and ordered some of your cards as well. I love, love the new "So happy together" poster too! You and Kirk and Eva make a great team. :)
