Extracurricular Activities Illustrated Greeting Cards

Summertime Illustrated Greeting Card | Extracurricular Activities

Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying are the husband and wife team behind Extracurricular Activities, an online shop that started out as a way for the couple to work on independent projects outside of their full-time jobs as concept artists for animation at Dreamworks and Disney, respectively, and has expanded to become an ever-growing line of beautifully illustrated cards, art prints, apparel, and digital accessories.

I am totally digging their greeting card lineup, which includes designs that feature everything from soothing landscapes to bustling cityscapes to seriously sweet characters. Here’s a peek at their cards, and be sure to head over to the Extracurricular Activities shop to see much more.

Suzy Ultman + Igloo Letterpress Die Cut Key Cards

Thank You Die Cut Letterpress Key Card | Suzy Ultman (designer) & Igloo Letterpress (printer)

I always look forward to seeing new collaborative projects from Suzy Ultman & Igloo Letterpress, and their latest is my favorite to date. This clever collection of die cut, key-shaped letterpress cards is innovative, sweet and, of course, wonderfully illustrated by Suzy. I think I’d have a hard time giving one of these adorable cards away, so they are definitely candidates for my buy-two-and-horde-one-in-my-paper-stash strategy!

On My Wishlist : For a Snowy Monday

It’s Monday. And it’s snowing … again. Wishing for spring to come early seems futile at this point so, instead, I’m wishing for a few paper-ish goodies that brighten my spirits and remind me of warmer (please, please) days to come.

I hope that you’ll find something in this group that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy, too:
