With this book from paper guru Karen Bartolomei, even the most budget-conscious host can now create beautiful, customized, coordinated suites of paper products for any occasion—a casual wine-tasting party, elegant dinner party, or backyard barbeque, among others.

To get started all you need is a computer, paper, and embellishments you can find in any craft store. Each suite contains several projects, from the all important invitation to smaller touches like labels, tags, and keepsakes. For instance, in the personal stationary suite you’ll learn to make a monogram, Thank-You cards, Mailing Labels, Business Cards, Letterhead, and Notecards, while in the New Year's Eve suite the projects include an Invitation, Menus, Resolution Sign-in/Postcards and Drink Signs.

In addition to providing inspiration for themed suites, Paperie for Inspired Living also includes indispnsable advice for invitation wording and etiquette, and provides tips for throwing unforgettable parties, like choosing a color scheme and ideas for breaking the ice.
