Pretty Calling Cards.

When I was young(er) I loved flipping through my mom's magazines. She usually had a Better Homes & Gardens or Country Living on the coffee table and I remember getting really excited when a new issue would come along. I can't remember which publication it was exactly, but one of the two had a page in every issue dedicated to "calling cards." I blame my paper obsession on this article.

Here are a handful of my favorite calling cards from ALT.


First row: A Little Sussy, With Style & Grace, Twig & Thistle
Second row: Fresh Nest Design, Sycamore Street Press, Collected
Third row: Paper Anniversary Co, You + Me, Snippet & Ink
Fourth row: You Are My Fave, Say Yes To Hoboken, Darling Design
Fifth row: Oh, Hello Friend, Creature Comforts, Oh So Beautiful Paper





I love that although we live in a highly technological time, we still find ourselves using an introduction method that started waaaay back in the 15th century.

  5. is it strange that I want to go to Alt just so I can come home with pretty little calling cards like you did?

    the paper fanatic in me was sort of in heaven rummaging through your pretty pile of cards.

    I love Ez's hand painted card, and Liz's pretty blue chevron letterpressed card.

  6. The magazine is called Victoria. It stopped being published for a few years but now it is back and it still features calling cards.

  8. I was completely the same when I was younger. Country Living was definitely one of my favorites! I actually still have an article on calling cards from Country Home too!

    I'm so glad you had such a great time & got to meet so many wonderful ladies!

  9. Oh Victoria! I had forgotten about that one! You're right, Jen V. It was Victoria. I'll have to snag an issue and reminisce.

  17. As soon as I saw the first photo and before I began reading I was thinking "this looks like Victoria magazine". I used to read my mom's too and in fact have her collection and have such a hard time parting with them. Kelly

  18. These are all so elegant, yet simple. I can't decide which one I like best!
    I just recently stumbled upon your blog, and I just adore it! Are you a designer?

    XO,
