I’m a total sucker for a cute illustration, and these paper goodies from Isabell’s Umbrella are calling my name. The adorable, illustrated note cards and jotters from their new spring collection feature an enchanting mix of cutie patootie critters like demure foxes, bicycling birdies, yarn-loving kitties, and sweet kokeshi dolls.
Here’s a peek at the new collection, and be sure to check out the Isabell’s Umbrella shop for more cuteness.

The delightful floral paper goodies from Darling Clementine’s Bloom series are an automatic pick-me-up for all of us (myself included) who are wishing for warmer days and an end to what has been an exceptionally chilly spring season. I’m really digging the sweet, blossom-covered greeting cards, art prints, and super cool gift wrap, as well as the fantastic color palette, which ranges from rich burgundy to kraft, pretty pink to poppy red, and midnight to sky blue.

a. favorite has some of the most clever cards around, and I’m so excited to see that they recently released a collection of gift wrap, too. Many of these super cool gift wrap designs coordinate perfectly with greeting cards from the a. favorite card collection, and the papers feature all sorts of fun patterns. You’ll find everything from tickets to old-timey shooting galleries to colorful lanterns to popcorn bags in this clever bunch.
