There's something undeniably heartwarming in the old-fashioned and thoughtful gesture of creating and sending a personal note, a romantic card, or a handwritten thank you.

For readers who like receiving such notes as well as sending them, this book is for you. It offers more than 100 unique ideas for creating personalized stationery featuring traditional media, such as using stamps, paint, punches, needle and thread, as well as using the computer to generate monograms, borders and trims, clip art, photographs, and much more.

The stationery examples are simple, yet elegant, and feature a beautiful, fun, and sophisticated range of styles that appeal to everyone, not just skilled crafters. Designs can be made quickly, and can be executed assembly-line style, so that it's easy to make 10 or 20 sheets in one sitting. Most of all, the graceful handcrafted designs will delight the receiver.
