I hope y’all didn’t think I’d only leave you with one day’s worth of National Stationery Show posts! No, there is too much goodness to share, so I’m back again today with some adorable paper designs and lovely images from Whitney Porter.
I could not resist the adorable lemonade card from Hello!Lucky. Their booth was full of bright and retro designs. Of course, we have to pair lemonade with some delicious biscuits! This card from Paisley Tree Press was a spin off of our favorite Southern phrase.

Glitz and glitter are favorites within the Southern Weddings office and these two interpretations were to die for, y’all! Meant To Be Sent had so many bright and colorful designs this year, but I just loved this gold foil card with the tiny pink heart. Across the way, Farewell Paperie debuted their new Partywell collection with a bang! There were gold foil napkins, party cones, bunting and more!

A little booklet of Lovers’ Coupons from Letter & Lark was about the cutest thing I saw. Coupons for a fancy date night or a movie of your choice were packaged in such a lovely way. At Elum, Whitney and I swooned over their adorable recipe cards. They’re blank inside for writing notes, but the back of the card has a recipe for peach cobbler! Steel Petal Press gave the South a little love with their notecards.
I adored the minimalist designs and darling illustrations at Penelope’s Press. Debbie and Elaine were brilliant enough to come up with vendor thank you cards. They’re adorable and act as another reason to stop and appreciate your vendors in the middle of the wedding planning chaos.
The mint walls and cute bunting get me again! Pistachio Press had an adorable booth, but I especially loved their cross stitch cards. They remind me of the designs I used to do with my mom! (Side note: the washi tape that Pistachio used to hang their cards is my favorite!)
We wandered over to the Smarty Pants Paper Co. and got a kick out of seeing an adorable blue ribbon card. At Smudge Ink, we loved the Southern style in their bow tie and chicken cards.

Sugarcube Press had an assortment of fun goodies! Their cards were right up my alley, but I really loved their stamping kits. Fun designs were packaged in a mason jar so you can stamp tea towels or canning labels!
The Social Type’s booth was full of vibrant colors, from their bright yellow pineapple thank you notes to their hot pink “Pleased as Punch” cards. Too cute, I say!
Emily spotted Wednesday at last year’s NSS, but I was blow away by them in person. All of their beautiful scripts are hand-lettered by Garett and so unique! Even better, Jessica and Garett are the nicest.
Doesn’t Tabletop Made’s booth make you feel like you’re on vacation? I love that Karis and Sarah brought a little bit of Santa Barbara with them to NSS with their cactus plants! Their cards are purposefully “sweet, colorful, yet simple” and that’s just the way I like them.
The Great Lakes had another blue ribbon card that we enjoyed. Theirs, however, was blank. We love the idea of filling in the ribbon with an “award” of your choice!
Don’t forget to take a look at Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
