Weekly Wrap #15 : By the Sea

Weekly Wrap

Ocean Theme Gift Wrap

I have to admit that I’m usually not a fan of ocean and coastal themed decor, but when done right it can be truly beautiful. I’m completely taken with this gift wrap idea that I spotted at Chez Fifi. I love the subdued palette and kanji print wrap, and the starfish and seaweed colored raffia embellishments are fantastic. Plus, the sand dollar used as a gift tag? Brilliant!

An ocean themed Weekly Wrap this week is actually quite fitting, as we’re supposed to get deluged over the next couple of days in these parts. Whether you’re facing a monsoon, as I likely will be, or you have gloriously sunny and warm weather, I wish you a happy weekend!

I’m a huge fan of illustrator Blanca Gómez, and I’m completely giddy over discovering that Red Cap Cards has added a line of greeting cards designed by her in their artist series. Okay, Kristen, stop drooling over your keyboard. Needless to say, I think that I’ll be picking up a few of these cards.

Have you checked out the Felt & Wire shop lately? If you’re a paper lover, then you should head over if you haven’t already … after you read this post, of course. They have a fantastic, curated collection of paper goods, and one of their newest additions is Paperdolls, whose bold, patterned gift wrap I’m totally digging.

Subtle Glances Letterpress

Today, I’m all aswoon over the portfolio of Subtle Glances, whose fantastic calling card design for photographer Jerry Yoon initially drew me to their work. Their letterpress wedding invitation work is quite stunning, and their love for what they do truly shows in the details. I’m also digging the monkey and banana birth announcements that they created — too cute! Here’s a little eye candy from the Subtle Glances portfolio:
