The above card is certainly appropriate for this post, because these greeting cards from Sydney, Australia-based Fable Paper Co. are the cat’s meow. The mix of sweet illustration and hand lettering makes for some seriously cute cards, don’t cha think?
Here’s a peek at their adorable greetings, and be sure to head over to the Fable Paper Co. shop to see the full lineup of sweet paper goods.

Up Up Creative recently introduced a bunch of craveable, new paper goodies, including this eye-catching collection of personalized stationery. I am so digging the mix of pattern, type, and color in these fresh designs, which pair perfectly with Up Up’s new line of custom return address stamps. Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift idea, anyone?

Good Monday, everyone, and thanks so much for your kind comments and emails last week about the house! Whew, it was an exhausting week – and I ended up coming down with a cold on Tuesday, which slowed me down for the rest of the week – but we still made so much progress. There’s plenty more to do (do you ever really run out of projects when you own a house?), but I’m happy to have a few rooms set up and operational. I hope to be able to share some photos about what we’ve been doing soon.
Anywho, enough house stuff, let’s get back to the paper! I’m so jazzed about these awesome, hand stitched greeting cards by Sarah K. Benning. I love embroidery, and Sarah brilliantly applies this handicraft to paper in such a modern way, incorporating geometric patterns, lettering, and sweet sentiments to create cards that are unique, textural, and so much fun.
Fellow embroidery enthusiasts, be sure to check out Sarah’s contemporary fabric embroidery, too.

After six long months of extensive renovations and many long drives back and forth (an hour and a half each way) from my in-laws’, where we’ve been living since we moved back to Pennsylvania from Massachusetts last May, to the house that we closed on this past August, we’ve FINALLY moved in! We’re living in utter chaos right now, but every day brings progress, and for that I’m very thankful. I’ve also learned that updating a 100-year-old house is no joke, not that I ever thought it would be.
I’ll be taking this week off from Paper Crave and Invitation Crush so I can have as much time as possible to clean (sawdust upon plaster dust upon cobwebs everywhere = ugh), to paint, and to make the house feel like more like home. See you back here next week – or later this week, depending on what I run into – with lots of fresh paper cravings!
