If there is one thing I obsess over more than cake, it's paper. Having a fine arts background in printmaking, I'm in constant awe of all things paper and those who immerse themselves in this mutual adoration. Portland-based artist, Denise Sharp of Studio d. Sharp, is one such person and I marvel at what she dreams up and creates by hand.

Not surprisingly, Denise has a fine arts degree in sculpture and printmaking. And, she has put that training to great effect building a menagerie of stunning and sweet paper adornments and vintage-inspired ephemera. From her vintage stamp cake garlands and custom glitter monogram cake toppers to charming favor boxes declaring "You mean the world to me" or "You rock", Denise beautifully crafts the kind of creations that are rich in meaning and individuality. And, isn't that just what one wants in their wedding? Indeed!
