Ferme à Papier, the gorgeous new stationery line from Cat Seto, had me at bonjour. Ferme à Papier, which means “farm to paper”, was inspired by Cat’s first trip to Europe this past October and takes her back to her roots in drawing and painting. The result is a wonderful, painterly collection of greeting cards, note cards, and art prints that looks like it just stepped out of an art exhibition. Parisian prepsters canoodle in cafés, delectable sweets beckon to you from the table, and rustic farms from the European countryside are a mosaic of rich, warm colors that pop out from the card fronts and prints which they inhabit. Can you tell that I’m digging it?
Ferme à Papier will be making its debut at the National Stationery Show in booth #2136 later this month. If you’re walking the aisles in search of something that will catch your eye, then be sure to stop in and check out this wonderful collection in person.

I am completely smitten with these incredibly sweet Farm Animals wrapping papers from Clap Clap Design. The darling, illustrated gift wraps are available in four colorways (peach, pink, purple, and yellow) and would make the perfect packaging for baby shower gifts or children’s birthday party gifts, don’t cha think?
