Sesame Letterpress' Silhouettes

We have long been fans of Sesame Letterpress (we wrote about them here) and were so excited to see a sneak preview their new collection on Design Sponge. They will be debuting it at the upcoming Stationery Show in New York. This collection is comprised of beautiful Victorian era silhouettes filled with a pop of color and pattern derived from vintage security envelope linings. You can see the collection here and you can visit their shop here.

Haiti Relief

As all of you know by now, a devastating 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti on January 12th. At Simply Silhouettes and My First Silhouette, we have pledged to donate 10% of our sales through January 31st to Mercy Corps for their earthquake relief efforts.

Please help us raise money for Mercy Corps' response to the Haiti Earthquake. We've set up a page to make it easy to donate here.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

Our Reading List

Given the business that we're in, we love creating keepsakes of our family life, but I've never been much of a scrapbooker. Yesterday, while thumbing through the February issue of Martha Stewart Living I came across an article on Darcy Miller's Scrapboxes and I think I may have found my new obsession.

Here's a closer look at a few more of them:I've got boxes and boxes of mementos and photos of our family and I can't wait to begin work on some of these. And wouldn't one look great with a silhouette?

If you're in New York, you can see the exhibit in person at Partner's and Spade.

DIY Valentines

I came across this in the new issue of Victoria magazine, and since we're on the topic of Valentine's, I thought I'd share it here. Check out this great silhouette Valentine tutorial.

It was created by Olivia Kanaley. You can see more of Olivia's work on her delightful blog, "A Field Journal."

On to the next holiday

It seems like we just got our Christmas cards in the mail (sad, but true) and amazingly enough, it's not too early to start thinking about Valentine's Day.

Here are some photos of how one of our customers used her Simply Silhouettes' Valentine's last year. She attached them to treats for her daughter's teachers and classmates.

We also did a wonderful card for her to send with Valentine's greetings from her whole family.

To order your own custom silhouette Valentine's, check out our selection here.

Happy New Year
