House Rules Letterpress Cards

Banshee Press’ “House Rules” letterpress card series showcases the mischievous side of classic playing card characters and, whoa, I wouldn’t want to meet these guys, gal, or dog in a dark alley! The fantastic, illustrated cards would be great to send to a card playing friend with an edgy sense of humor, and I think they’d also look awesome framed and hung on the wall of a game room or a man cave. Check ‘em out:

Treehouse Letterpress Cards & Notebooks

Treehouse Letterpress Card | Constellation & Co.

As much as I love all things paper and stationery, I still find it a little tough to get back into the swing of things after the holiday break, and it’s a wonderful thing when just the right email shows up in my inbox to give me the motivation that I need to start posting about pretty paper again.

This year, that email actually showed up a bit before Christmas, but I knew that I wanted to share its contents with you as soon as I got back to posting in January, and I think you’ll agree that these paper goodies add a little magic and dreams of the warm months to come to cold, winter days. Get ready for some treehouse love!

Treehouse Letterpress Card | Constellation & Co.

Seattle-based Constellation & Co. recently finished a brand new series of paper goods in collaboration with their Washington State neighbors, Treehouse Point, and the new series of treehouse-themed letterpress gifts features each of Treehouse Point’s six gorgeous treehouses. The collection includes a boxed set of six notecards, single cards, and sketchbooks (blank) or notebooks (lined). These magical letterpress goodies offer a wonderful way to escape for a moment into the “treehouse state of mind”.

Check out the whole series in Constellation & Co.’s Etsy shop or in person at Treehouse Point, where you can stay the night in a beautiful treehouse and then take home a hand printed memento of your getaway.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I’m just about to wrap things up for the year, and before I sign off I want wish all of you Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Everything! I can’t express how much I appreciate that you take the time to stop by Paper Crave and share the paper love, and I hope that you’ve enjoyed the paper cravings that I’ve shared throughout the year. I’m already looking forward to 2014 and cannot wait to see what awesomely craveable paper goodies will be appearing on the stationery scene.

I’ll see you back here in January and, in the meantime, safe travels to all of you who are hopping into a plane, train, or automobile to visit family, friends, or a warm and tropical destination (I wish) over the holidays! I’m looking forward to spending time with family and friends, as well as having some more free time to work on our new house (estimated date of move-in is February), and spending some cozy time in front of the computer watching the adorable Lil BUB.

If you’re still on the lookout for some super cool gift tags and holiday packaging and decorating ideas, be sure to head on over and check out the Free Printables + Paper Crafts section of my holiday posts roundup. Hope you’ll find something you love!

See you in 2014 …

Omigosh, is this diy animal gift wrap adorable, or what?! The clever packaging is not only sweet, but it’s simple to do, too. All you need is white wrapping paper, scissors, tape, and a black marker, and you’re good to go. There are so many additional possibilities with solid colored wrapping paper, too. Pink piggies, green froggies, black cats and, of course, red fox boxes!
