The Paper Crave Holiday Collection at Felt & Wire

Felt & Wire Holiday Gift Wrap Cards Tags

I had a lot of fun putting together the “Paper Crave” Collection earlier this year for the Felt & Wire Shop, and I was so excited when they asked me if I’d like to do a holiday collection. It was tough, but I finally narrowed it down to twelve of my favorites, including gobs of gorgeous gift wrap (of course!), rockin’ gift tags and greeting cards, and a couple of sweet calendars, too. Head on over to Felt & Wire to check it out!

2011 Calendar Designs, Part 6

So many calendars, so little time! I’m going to be wrapping up my 2011 calendar roundups over the next couple of weeks, but it’s going to be difficult to stop because there are just so many great designs out there this year. Every time I think that I’ve found as many as I can, I end up finding a few (or twenty) more!

SusyJack* always has one of my favorite wall calendars. The spectrum of color in the nature silhouettes is simply lovely.

The desk calendar version is gorgeous, too:

I love argyle, so it’s no surprise that I’m digging Albertine Press’ 2011 letterpress calendar. The accordion fold design is super cool, too! Available in green & gray and dusty blue & gray.

A Little Hut’s Box Calendar is such a unique design. The 3D calendar comes pre-scored and pre-cut, and you can customize the calendar by adding pieces of colored paper or fabric to the back. So cool! An SVG version of the calendar is also available for those of you who have digital die-cutters.

These limited edition 2011 Folky Calendars by Junecraft are so much fun, and the 11×14 inch calendars can be framed for a more finished look, too. Available in red and orange or blue and green.

Snow & Graham has a little something for everyone! Their wall calendars, desk calendars, and the new accordion calendars featuring Snow & Grahams trademark floral illustrations make great gifts, too.

I can’t get enough of the foodie calendars, and this one by English Muffin is super cute. Inspired by Saturday mornings at the market, the 2011 ” Counting the Kitchen” calendar features a different food illustration for each month, and you can frame the 5×5 inch illustrations when the month is finished. Available in English and French.

A Letterpress Christmas 2010 : Fine Day Press

Letterpress Christmas

Fine Day Press has a fantastic collection of holiday letterpress greeting cards and gift tags this year. Everything has such a clean, modern feel, and I’m really digging the red, green, and teal color palette. Holiday cards are sold in sets of six or as single cards, and two sets of letterpress gift tags are available, too.
