Self Made Letter Sets

It's literally inpossible to find pretty letter papers from Finland anymore. However, there are some very cute, pastel and pearl colored envelopes available. To me it remains a mystery why would anyone want to send a pretty envelope filled with boring white letter sheets, but that's not the point of this post.

The point is, since the pretty letter sheets have suffered an extinction, I decided to make my own. I bought a set of stamps featuring cute birds and old fashioned bird cages, and while my stamping tehcnique needs some working on, I'm pretty happy with these first sets I made.

That's all for now, just wanted to share this little crafts project of mine with you. :D

  1. Such creativity! I'm also having a problem trying to find pretty letter sets. I can only find coloured envelopes and horrible lined paper to go with it :(

    1. Thank you! I know, it's weird that they do sell pretty envelopes, but all the paper is plain, boring and ugly... Why don't you make your own also? :D (I just have to warn you, this stamping equipment was quite expensive, almost 40 euros because I had to buy so many things to start this project. x_x)

    2. The cost is the reason why I might not be able to make such pretty paper :(

    3. Aww, that's too bad! I was also quite shocked about how costy it was to buy this "starter kit", so to call it... but I'm hoping it will pay itself back eventually, and I know I can make e.g. cards with these stamps, besides the letter sets. :3

  2. Ompas suloisia! ^__^

    Samaistun kyllä tuohon kauniiden kirjepapereiden puutokseen. Olen itse alkanut kirjeen vaihtoon sitten ala-asteen ja alkaa nuo vanhan laatikosta löytyneet paperit loppumaan. Olen koittanut pitää silmällä, jos tulisi vastaan jossain, mutta tuntuu ettei nykyisin kirjepapereita enää niinkään ole..etenkään mitään erityisiä.

    1. Kiitos kiitos! On todella tylsää, ettei yhtään mistään löydä nättejä kirjepapereita enää nykyään. Kai kirjeenvaihto on sitten niin "out", ettei niiden myyminen enää kannata. :(

  3. Ohh these are indeed very pretty!
    I sadly never write any letters, and if I do there are just professional stuff (like applications, to officials or something like that) :(
    I saw a shop here that sells some colorful tapes, pretty stickers (not this kind of "children's stickers", but more elegant ones with patterns etc.), stamps and stuff like that. It has some kind of name to decorate your stuff with these I think, but I forgot it .__. Well anyway. Maybe you find something like that in a paper shop near you!

  5. It's a nice paper! I was looking for some beautiful letter set and I couldn't find any but I still have some BTSSB note pads and letter sets so I'm using these. I hope I can find some floral paper!

    1. Thank you! I'd like floral letter sheets as well but they simply don't sell those in Finland anymore, nore do they sell anything else than boring, white, lined sheets. It makes me sad. :(

  6. This reminds me of the most wonderful stamps I've ever bought.
    It's this one:
