The Bijou Desk & Stationery Collection by Elum

The Bijou Collection by Elum for Papyrus

My heart skipped a beat (or three) when I laid my eyes on the gorgeous, new Bijou Desk & Stationery Collection by Elum for Paper Destiny. Omigosh, you guys, this collection is awesome! You’ll find a little bit of everything in the Bijou Collection, from journals and notepads to greeting cards, gold foil stamped file folders and chic stationery.

I am absolutely lovin’ all of the little design details in this pretty paper collection, including fantastic colors, bold pattern, brush lettering, warm gold accents, and touches of white oak wood veneer. The entire Bijou collection is sophisticated, modern, and so very craveable, but I have to say that my favorites have to be the super cool topographic notepad and the macaron-shaped erasers. So fresh and fun!

The Bijou Collection is available for a limited time, exclusively at Papyrus stores or in the Papyrus online shop.
