Colorful Summer Paper Goods

Today, I’m delighted to welcome Brittni Mehlhoff of Papernstitch, who is sharing a roundup of wonderful paper goodies that remind her of summertime. And today just happens to be the perfect day for some summer-y paper, because it’s hot, hot, hot outside in so many places. Take it away, Brittni!

Summer is all about color and fun. And when it comes to shopping for cards, notepads, and other paper goods, I look for those same exact things: color and fun. Pair that with my love for patterns and repetition, and I am one happy camper (and so are the friends and family I send snail mail to).

Keeping all this in mind, I’ve rounded up my favorite patterned paper picks for the hot summer days…
