Victorian Elegance with Estella

 

“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.”
― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Bring a bit of Victorian elegance to your stationery with the Estella range. Think antimacassars , silver candlesticks and for heaven’s sake, not Miss Havisham. There’s even a hint of early cinema in this grey and cream set, which features a monogrammed back, personalised with the initials of yourself and your beloved.

The doily-style background is a pale, subtle tea-coloured wash with a lovely graduation of dappled colour. Here it’s paired with a rich deep grey with hints of a blue tone, but as always these can be amended to fit your colour scheme.

Includes Save the Dave, Invitation, RSVP and white envelopes. See it for yourself here.

It’s Christ-maaaaaaas!

In the immortal words of Noddy Holder, “IT’S CHRIST-MAAAAAAAAAAAS!”

Ah, Christmas time. Time for joy, laughter and time with family. Time to eat as much chocolate as humanly possible, all the while promising yourself you’ll change in the New Year.

Here at Giftast, we’ve spent several days painting tiny holly leaves in watercolour, so you don’t have to. Yes, share the joy with this 5 or 10 pack of festive cards, each left blank for your message.

Cards are 15cm x 15cm when folded, and come with kraft paper envelopes. Pick yours up here.

Understated, Elegant Rosie

“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

There’s something a little bit art deco about the Rosie collection. If you’re looking to invite Hercule Poirot to your wedding, try the Rosie invitation set. He’ll probably decline, but Captain Hastings will think it’ll be a hoot, and bring Miss Lemon as his plus one.

In soft green and cream, Rosie is understated and elegant, not to mention double-sided for that extra luxurious look.

New: Julia Wedding Range

“And for the rest of the night, he couldn’t quite forget the smell of her perfume. Or maybe it was the soft sound of her chuckle. Or maybe it was neither of those things. Maybe it was just her.”
― Julia Quinn, It’s in His Kiss

Hey Julia! Look at you, so sophisticated and pretty.

I’ll bet Julia spends her free afternoons strolling in her gardens and clipping blossoms to drape artfully around the house.

Gorgeous grey-toned, soft colours coupled with a classic oval frame, and complimented by tiny watercolour blossoms. I am so in love with this collection, not least because of their pretty, hidden backs in a ditsy print which is what I imagine a sprigged muslin looks like, even though I’m pretty sure it’s wrong and should probably google it.

Get that spring feeling and order your sample pack here.

Kisses for the Mrs

Once the wedding is over, the confetti has settled, and the bride sets to changing her surname on everything, those heady, pre-wedding days of hen-partying, dress shopping and worrying about seating plans can seem like just a distant memory. Did she really walk around the town centre draped in phalluses? How many shots did she do from that butler-in-the-buff’s chest?

While some things may be best forgotten, the congregation of all her best friends and the most fun part of planning a wedding shouldn’t be! Remind your hen of the good time you all had with this diamante-studded print.

Your a4-sized print will arrive kiss-less for you and the rest of the hens to decorate. A fun keepsake, and one of the few parts of the hen do which can not only go on Facebook, but also on the wall of the newly-weds living room!

Treat your hen here!

Remember with Bling

After our wedding, once we’d returned from our mini-moon in Wales, and once all the laundry was done, I found myself wondering if we’d actually got married at all. I mean, there were photos, and people kept asking me what it was like to be married (just the same as before, LOL), but the actual wedding itself kind of felt like a dream I’d once had. Perhaps that was partly due to the massive hangover I’d battled through on the big day, but that post-wedding lull hits us all in one way or another.

Now, over six months in, it feels like we’ve been married forever. In a good way, of course. So when I think to myself, has it really been that long? all I have to do it look over to my commemorative print, and I am reminded anew.

Use for weddings, birthdays, christenings, first kisses, divorces! Anything you really, really want to remember deserves to be surrounded by roses and hand-finished with gold ink and diamante.

This print is photo-printed sized 7x5in and hand-finished to make it sparkle with bling. Frame not included, although if you like the grey, this one was from Wilkos.

Not-So-Plain Jane

“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

Celebrate in style with our gorgeous range inspired by the queen of romance writing.

As someone who did her own wedding on a tight budget, I wanted to create a lower-priced range for brides who wanted something pretty and stylish, but without the associated costs. These invite packs are an extension of the “Jane” range, and come blank for you to write your own details in.

Dark blue on white is a timeless combination, and our soft watercolour sprigs over thick, textured paper make each invite look hand-painted.

Save the Dates, Invitations and RSVPs, are all available in packs of 10 and include white envelopes. Check them out here!
