Paperie Sheep

fresh & modern hand crafted stationery

Vanessa

HenryComment
Vanessa approached me to create her wedding invitation that would make a tree as the focal point, it was a cute tree. You get a little shabby chic and a little rustic just by looking at the invitation, just the way she wanted her wedding. I especially loved her wedding plans when she told me her father will be building small wooden crates with her to add personal touches and spend quality time.
    






To continue the rustic theme throughout bring in some girly-ness to her invitation suite, we finished off with a kraft envelope lined with vintage inspired paper.  





To make it even more fun, the envelope linings had personalities too!



Hand bind album with LOVE

HenryComment
There is no better way to show case the love you have for handcrafted goodies than to create a hand bound album. This album was created as a guest sign-in book for a wedding in Long Island, NY, it was going to house polaroid pictures of the guests.  




Each page was created with love and meant to withstand a lot of flipping through. 




No attention to detail was spared, the cover was covered with kraft material and finished with spine wrapped in the same material as part of the wedding invitation components. 



I loved the process of creating this, and loved how it came out. 

Marvin Tsai Photography

HenryComment
Marvin and I shared the same love for letterpress stationary, so I was very happy and excited when he approached me to create something simple yet unique for his studio.
 

The media case was first pressed with Marvin's logo then handcrafted into an envelope.

 
I love a simple design that allows the beauty of the cardstock to shine.


Elaine

HenryComment
I don't get opportunities to work with brides who wanted their wedding invitations to be truly minimal, so I enjoy and appreciate it when the rare opportunity comes by.

 
 
I love the cream and the black, it just looks so elegant and classic. Perfect for the timeless venue.
 

I almost printed in all cream color, it soften the invitation and added some femininity.  


Colette

HenryComment
I had a lot of fun working with Colette, not only she was probably one of the sweetest girl I have ever met, her and her fiancé Greg was just too cute together!
 
 

I love the choice of colors, very bold and sophisticated.

 
 
It has a touch of regal vibe to it, very classy.




Cristina

HenryComment
My girly girl bride, Cristina, asked for something romantic and girly for her Nov wedding at an yacht club, she also asked me to somehow incorporate her beloved schnauzer, Ari, into her invitation design. 
 

 
I love the details on the sweet penoies, so fluffy!

 




Sharing is LOVING!

HenryComment
If you love someone, send some custom designed personal notecards their way. That was exactly what Cindi did for her sisters.

 

Cindi picked a different flower for each notecard that she knew her sisters would love and asked their names to be printed in their favorite colors as well. How thoughtful was that!






 
 
These definitely make some great personal gifts!

Joyce

HenryComment
What else do you need to have if you are already getting married at a 400 year old castle in Scotland? That is why Joyce asked for something simple and timeless. Black text on Pearl White stock. No fuss, not over the top. The simplicity of the design allowed the luxurious stock to take center stage.  




Dont you just love the sneak peak of the castle on the top?


Oh, Julie!

Henry2 Comments
This invitation, in my opinion, was perfect for a wedding uniting two young beautiful professionals at the Legendary Park Plaza. It has some old school glam and some new school fun.


Julie wanted a hollywood movie ticket-esque feel with a subtle but statement background.

 
What else screams FUN WEDDING than EAT (delicious food), DRINK (lots of alcohol) and DANCE (put your hands in the air)?
 

 


Chic and bold

HenryComment
I am not a fan of seeing those cheesy red envelopes meant for Chinese New Years at weddings... They usually have random patterns on them, festive, yes, stylish, NO. When I worked on an invitation project that had a double luck design, I thought to myself: I think I can make a really chic money envelope with it". Here I am, looking at this elegantly dressed hand crafted red envelope. It has everything an Asian wedding need: Red, Double luck mofit, and sized just right to accommodate some cash or a check :) 



The envelope is made with heavy cardstock in a rich deep red, then embellished with a letterpressed Double luck motif.




I think newly weds would be very happy to open envelopes like this! I know I would!






Sweet Beth

HenryComment
Beth was probably the most soft spoken bride I have ever worked with, she chose a shade of green that totally showed how soft and girly she is.







A typography style design with minimal embellishment was modern and understated, perfect for the low-key couple.
  


To add a touch of pop color and youth, Beth asked to pair the breezy green with whimsical purple. 

Carolyn

HenryComment
I was thrilled when Carolyn asked me to design her Asian themed wedding. Carolyn and her fiance, Eric, are one of those stunning couples, they are beautiful, young, fun and just so in love. They turn heads when they are together, I know I couldnt keep my eyes off of them :)


Since Eric is Chinese, Carolyn wanted to incorporate that into their wedding. She wanted something chic, modern yet very Asian. What can be more Asian than the red and gold color combo and the Chinese character,  "Xi" (double luck)?

I love the bright red and the clean white, super chic and clean.

The irregular registry card is unexpected, totally awesome.

Australia Bound!

HenryComment
I love this pair of love birdies! Not only they have the chubby look that I always try to achieve. the bride has a different head accessory than a flower!









The head piece picture the bride had shown me had intricate pearl and crystal pattern, I was very happy that I was able to recreate the pattern with silver paint and pearl/crystal embellishment :)

How wonderful to be recognized for my work and being featured on EAD! Belinda and Jim is a lovely couple that I felt instant connection with, I am very honored to be part of their special day. I am glad that the day turned out just the way the bride had envisioned.  

Real Weddings: Belinda + Jim

Belinda and Jim’s wedding is not only about as sophisticated and elegant as it gets, but it’s got an utterly fantastic pop of bold color throughout too! Bridesmaids in bright pink BCBG dresses, vibrant pink and red florals dripping with crystals by City of Commerce Flower, and glittering pink favors at each place setting, all set against their stunning venue Athenaeum at Caltech. The venue by itself is amazing, but then add in all these incredible details? I’m 100% smitten. Oh and add in the perfection that is Belinda’s Valentino heels? Make that 110%. Bravo to the whole team responsible for this gorgeous wedding and to Marvin Tsai for the beautiful photos!

Married in London!

HenryComment
Had a buyer from London on Etsy that asked me to make a pair of love birdie. I was very excited when she told me she would like a "waist coat" for the groom birdie, although I had no idea what a waist coat was until I googled it, I knew it was something that I havent done before.



The "wasit coat" (or a vest, according to google) came out great! The groom birdie looked very handsome with it, I love how the tie is so little on the groom.



Have a safe trip to London!

Thank you bunny much

Henry2 Comments
What can be more perfect than a bunny baby shower thank you card for a baby to be born in the year of rabbit? A letterpress bunny pull toy is perfect for this special occasion.


To make the bunnies even cuter and sweeter, I hand-painted each bunny with watercolor to add some whimsical touch. 


My first time mixing letterpress and watercolor, I was very happy with the end result. I can't wait to paint my next project!

Sweet envelope

HenryComment
Valentine's day is just around the corner, it inspired me to make something romantic and sweet. I have been wanting to work on a project with paper lace for awhile, and I think the result is lovely and perfect for a love letter.  



This envelope is fully handcrafted with kraft paper and paper lace for a rustic vintage feel yet with a touch of sweetness.


How could anyone not feel the love when you opened a card or a handwritten note arrived in this? It would also make any ordinary wedding invitation unique.

 

Fabric box

HenryComment
I had a chance to work with a high-end garment manufacturer on a project to repurpose their inventory fabric. They had a vision to make something nice to send their collection lookbook to magazine editors and merchandisers at various department stores using their leftover fabric from the production line, so this is what I can up with.


It is a pull-out box that is fits a 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.5" collection lookbook, or anything from pens to small notepads.

I thought the use of leftover fabric was awesome, not only it is green, it also showcases the quality of the fabric.




I heart cake toppers :)

HenryComment
I love to create fun little cake toppers with personal touches, they are not only fun for the wedding day, they also make awesome display pieces post the big day.



Sweet bride Bounnam asked me to create something fun for her, I thought something 3D is always cute. I gave her the hair style that matches her wedding day, it had some height too, as she always teases her hair. The dress has a little 3D detail as well on the neckline, as her beautiful dress had it and that was her favorite part of the dress.


The funny and outgoing groom, Digits, is known to wear colorful Vans. To make sure I focus some attention to that personal detail, I made him a pair of dark purple Vans.
