Want That Vendor: Little Jem | Wedding Stationery
Morning my loves, I have a fantastically talented new little sponsor to introduce to you! Little Jem. Modern. Magical. Wedding stationery!!
You may remember I’ve blogged about Jenny before? and I can only reiterate how much I ADORE her wedding stationery designs. As I’ve said previously, they are totally, totally, cute, modern and very, very fresh. I love the materials she uses, the pretty little buttons and ribbons and I think you’re gonna love them too!! In the meantime, why not get to know our Jen a little better. Introducing the lady behind the magical designs…
A little Jem was born!
Hello to all you wedding blog readers, I’m Jenny, the crafty mind and hands on creator of Little Jem.
My little business idea was born when I was asked by a special person in my life to make their wedding stationery and I must say, I really struggled to find any inspiration for a handmade design.
The same generic materials feature heavily on whiter than white designs! Diamantes, satin ribbon and lots of bows have given the handmade card a bad name.
On the flip side of this, graphics has really added some excitement to the wedding invite, there are some lovely colourful designs out there but what I found lacking was a really unique and modern handmade style.
Ive collected crafty things for years; interesting buttons of all shapes and sizes, trims, fabric, ribbons the lot. I love patterns and colourful trinkets and anything paper related. With such a lovely array of materials, I felt an exciting opportunity to enhance the handmade invite into something modern and gorgeous and perfect for a wedding.
I am truly blessed to be able to say I work from home, tucked away in my studio on the top floor of my house in Yorkshire. My shelves are over flowing with ribbons and buttons (which I really need to stop buying!) Occasionally my daughter is let loose amongst all my things, which she loves and there’s a lot of squealing involved!
Little Jem sparkles….
With an exciting, fresh and unique approach to wedding stationery, I truly believe Little Jem has something to offer all couples looking for a wedding invite which you just cant help but touch and love! And in turn, giving their guests a beautifully handcrafted invite to the best day of their lives.
Little Jem Loves…
Besides a job I adore, here’s a few things I love…
♥ Above all else, my cute (& definitely quirky) two year old girl Milla; a little ray of sunshine in my life.
♥ League of Gentlemen – call me sick, call me perverted but there’s nothing better than a bit of black comedy which is stuck in the gutter!
♥ I am a master baker in the kitchen even though half the stuff I bake is a total disaster, I don’t care because I love cake
♥ I love love love Liberty in London, all those gorgeous fabrics really inspire me! (despite the price tag:)
♥ A good emotional read, mostly autobiographies because knowing it is real, really adds a key element to a book. My favourites are A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown & Breaking Night by Liz Murray.
♥ Meditating and being a part of the silent world that surrounds us. It’s as important to me as breathing and I feel it’s a shame that a lot of people are blind to the amazing energy that lies within each of us. We have our minds, our bodies and then….much more!
♥ New Zealand. It’s my second home and my heart and my head are split on opposite sides of the world. The reason? My dad always dreamed of returning to his birthplace and so spent the last 10 years of his life living out his dream. Every year his young, lively daughter would invade his space and turn his chilled out life upside down! Great memories, which have shaped who I am today
♥ And I cant forget to mention the man in my life! Who is my best friend and we’ve been together for almost 6 years. But to let you in on a secret…we’re happily UNmarried! I love a good wedding, the styling of it, the excitement at spending the day surrounded by your friends and family and love being the bridesmaid….but I think I’m missing the bride gene!
So why choose Little Jem?
With so much choice out there for wedding invites, it can be an overwhelming prospect to make that final decision which will set the tone for your big day. I am hoping that now you have stumbled upon Little Jem, the choice will be an easier one and you’ll think “now that’s what ive been looking for!”
Choosing Little Jem will really add that magical element to your wedding. Everyone adores a handmade card, so treat the special people in your life to a statement invite, which is modern, gorgeous and will most definitely get them looking forward to YOUR wonderful wedding!
