I’m excited to welcome two new advertisers to Paper Crave. First up is Southern Fete Creative, a shop and design studio that specializes in creating fresh, modern wedding stationery and just released their new Southern Life Collection, which is filled with lovely paper goods that will help you get organized in style. Great gift ideas abound in this new collection, and items can be purchased in the Southern Fete Etsy shop.
