Tutta Lou Letterpress

Tutta Lou Letterpress Note Cards


Well, hello there, navy and magenta! I’m loving these Modern Floral letterpress cards from Seattle area letterpress shop, Tutta Lou Press. The cards feature an intricate, Hindi inspired floral print that has been pressed onto both the note cards and fantastic magenta envelopes, which are tucked into a muslin bag that echos the floral motif.

Tutta Lou has plenty of other super cool paper goodies, including BBQ invitations that would be great for summer shindigs, modern patterned cards, an oh so pretty, blind debossed heart and key card, and peacock labels that all of you peacock lovers must see.

October Afternoon Thrift Shop Collection


October Afternoon Thrift Shop Artist Trading Cards

Okay, I think I’ve found my new favorite scrapbooking collection. I’m an avid thrift store junkie, so, not surprisingly, it was love at first sight when I spotted October Afternoon’s Thrift Store collection. First, how cool are these business card sized, vintage-themed artist trading cards? I think they would make great gift embellishments, as well as being a neato addition to paper craft and scrapbook projects.

And then there are the Thrift Shop patterned papers. They used a vintage sewing pattern as one of the patterns! Brilliant. Other patterned papers in the collection bring to mind vintage bed linens, damask curtains, tablecloths, and doilies, and the palette is filled with beautiful, muted reds, yellows, blues, and taupes. This collection is making me want to head out to Goodwill, like, right now.

Laura Macchia Fill-In Invitations

Laura Macchia recently introduced several oh so pretty fill-in invitation designs featuring nature-inspired graphic elements, and I think the invites would be lovely for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, or an afternoon tea party for the local woman’s club. The invitations are printed on heavy, 110 lb. 100% cotton cardstock and come in a biodegradable bag with 100% post consumer recycled kraft envelopes. Here’s a peek at the new invites:

Jurianne Matter Blom Paper Flowers

Jurianne Matter Blom Paper Flowers


I’ve been spotting these paper pretties around the web lately and am absolutely taken with them. Created by Dutch paper artist, Jurianne Matter, Blom features 15 pop out flowers and florist wire that you can use to make everything from a vase full of pretty paper flowers (above) to a garland, gift embellishments, and cupcake toppers. Such a great concept, and you have to love multi-purpose paper pretties!

In the US, you can find Blom at Linda Ferrol Studio, and you can also pick up Blom at Bijzonder Mooi (NL), and Life’s a Party (UK). See a full list of stockists for Jurianne’s paper goods here.

Threefold Collective Wishbone Cards

Making a wish on the wishbone of the Thanksgiving turkey was always a yearly tradition for my sister and me; however, we always had to wait until we were at my grandparents’ house at Christmas to actually do the wishing because the wishbone needed to dry before we could use it. This completely clever, pre-perforated One for You, One for Me card from Threefold Collective takes away all of the wishbone waiting time, and it’s a great option for vegetarians and vegans, too!
