Inspired Invites from Milkmaid Press

Milkmaid Press is the charming stationery company of my friend Kristen Nichols, and when she offered to design an invitation suite based on one of my inspiration boards, I couldn’t possibly say no! Imagine my surprise when she turned out a delightful design that works with a huge range of wedding styles, simply by customizing the color and backer pattern…

Board #467: Bold As Love with yellow floral.

Board #524: Southern Comfort with blue damask.

Board #556: Pretty in Peach with pink confetti.

Board #545: Romantic Early Spring with moss floral.

Board #490: Poppy & Mint with mint diagonal stripe.

Okay, as if I didn’t love it already, but then she went ahead and named it Kathryn. Which pretty much made my week! AND. Kristen is giving away a $250 gift certificate to FOUR lucky Snippet & Ink readers! Just leave a comment on this post with which Milkmaid Press design is your favorite. You have until Thursday, May 17th, 2012 at 5:00PM PDT to enter, and the randomly selected winners will be notified by email.

  • Emily says:

    I love the Poppy and Mint! It is so simple, totally my taste. And so beautifully feminine. Love, Love it.

  • jessica says:

    Romantic Early Spring with Moss Floral easily has to be my favorite!

  • I am smitten with the Faux Bois design. It is a great representation of our style and of the city we love and will be married in, Portland (or Stumptown)!

  • Caroline says:

    I love the Lattice Social Stationary! I’m getting married in two weeks, and I can’t wait to get notecards with my new name on them!

  • Amy says:

    The Faux Bois is exactly what I am looking for. It is simple in design yet it has such a strong impact!

  • Kristen C. says:

    Wow, so lovely – my favorite design is Sophisticate. It would go great with our venue, a museum!

  • Bev says:

    I really think the new “Kathryn” is beautiful! The design is modern yet has a very timeless feel. The font is so fresh and new…I haven’t seen anything like it before. This would fit my wedding perfectly!

  • Colleen says:

    Love the Romantic Early Spring board and the moss floral is just perfect fit with that inspiration! Colors are rich & elegant.

  • Audrey says:

    My favorite is the “Kathryn.” Our wedding is actually based on Snippet & Ink’s Board #187: Champagne & Dessert and I think the backer for Romantic Early Spring would work perfectly!

  • Leah says:

    I love the Simplicity Announcement. The layout with the 4 b&w photos is just stunning.

  • I’d choose the carribean palm thank you notes. They would be perfect since we have a honeymoon registry and we’re going to Turks and Caicos! I like the Kathryn,too. It’s very elegant. And the wildflower. Ok, I like them all.

  • Hayley says:

    I’m torn, because I’m equally in love with the Wildflowers Invitations and the Rustique in mint invitations…I think I’d have the choose the former though, because it’s so colorful!

  • Heather H says:

    I am loving the yellow floral paired with a yellow diagonal stripe reply. How happy would that make you to give or receive in the mail?!

  • Oh my, her work is beautiful! My favorite wedding invitation suite is the Magnolia collection. Just gorgeous.

  • Jennifer says:

    I am in love with the Lattice Social Stationery. Looks so chic and modern!

  • Alberto says:

    Y loved Poppy & Mint desing because the great and contrastan combination of the soft blue and the vivid red, it looks classy and dreamy.

  • Annie says:

    Love these-does anyone now what font the script is? It looks handwritten?

  • Annie says:

    Love these-does anyone know what font the script is? It looks handwritten?

    The new ‘Kathryn’ design is quite perfect – it’s both elegant and light, classic and modern, and the calligraphy is the best! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for – so thank you Kristen and muse Kathryn!

      I’m sorry, I think those are the Kathryn invitations with mint diagonal stripes. But I’m sure you knew what I meant! :) Thanks!

  • Bri says:

    I love the simplicity of the Kathryn Invitation Suite! Its very chic!

  • Claire says:

    Defo the Kathryn. It’s like a little love story between a barber and a calligrapher. Aw.

  • Alison says:

    I’m completely in love with the yellows and grays this season. The invitations are designed so beautifully to fit with the boards! Love love love.

  • The Belle Fleur as well as the Flora social stationery are my favorites, but the watercolor calling/business cards are beautiful!

  • Erin says:

    I love the Faux Bois collection. It is a great combination of country and classy!!

  • Kelly in DC says:

    I like the Candy Swirls Holiday card/announcement. I think it would make a beautiful post-wedding announcement card, and also be nice for thank you notes. I like that there are 4 color options or for $50 more, you can select custom colors.

  • Kelly says:

    the Poppy & Mint with the stripes is my favorite! How cool

  • Meaghan says:

    I like the bold as love in yellow. I think it is sophisticated and fun.

  • It’s a tie between Oiseaux and Rustique. They both look so elegant but like someone had just invited you to a backyard tea party at the same time! (And the sample fonts are just scrumptious!)

  • Seattle Lulu says:

    The Rustique is so, so lovely and fresh! J’adore!

  • ashleigh says:

    i have fallen in love with the rustique suite! so very elegant and timeless!
