Rock Scissor Paper Owl Invitations + Free Cupcake Toppers

Rock Scissor Paper Owl Invitations

Rock Scissor Paper Cupcake Toppers

I love owls, and I love woodgrain, so Rock Scissor Paper’s new Owl Party Invitations are right up my alley. And … they’ve designed free printable cupcake toppers to match! Doesn’t an owl-themed party sound like fun? Transform the cupcake topper printables into a cute garland or print them onto sticker paper and use them to embellish the invitation envelopes, place cards, etc. for super owl-y festivities.

Okay, so I just noticed that Rock Scissor Paper has an entire Owl Shoppe … um, awesome!

Planet Platonic Papercut Art

I’m completely in awe over the amazing papercut artwork of Mayuko Fujino, aka Planet Platonic. Every piece is created by hand with an X-acto knife, washi (Japanese handmade paper), and pages from magazines, and I love the organic shapes and wonderful color found in these papercuts. Mayuko’s Flickr stream is a feast for the eyes, and a selection of papercut works are available through the Planet Platonic Etsy shop.

Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Collection

It’s been quite cold around these parts lately. No snow … yet, but it certainly feels like winter. My mind can’t help but wander to snowy days and the holidays when it turns cold and I start to smell that familiar wintry scent in the air. I hope that fall will hang on for a while longer — it is my favorite season, after all — but for today I think it’s time to break out the first holiday themed scrapbook paper collection of the season.

Basic Grey’s Eskimo Kisses collection features seasonal damasks, a really rockin’ wood grain, kawaii characters, and berry toned accents that I’m really digging. Here’s a peek at the collection, and you can purchase the patterned papers, embellishments, stamps, and laser cut cardstock (bottom image) at Scrapbook.com and Two Peas in a Bucket.
