Weekly Wrap #17 : Under a Blanket of Stars

Weekly Wrap

Paper Stars, Fuchsia, Orange Holiday Gift Wrap

How luxurious would it be to sleep under beautiful paper stars and wake up to a pile of gorgeously wrapped gifts (all for you, of course) at the foot of your bed? I love the pinks, oranges, and grays, not to mention the gorgeous patterns, in these gift wrappings, featuring handblocked wrapping paper from Danish textile company, Bungalow. Here’s more eye candy from their gift wrap line:

Nonpareil Magazine, Issue #02

The second issue of Nonpareil Magazine is live — yay! I love that the theme of this issue is color, namely palettes inspired by the inspirational color cards that Maddy posts regularly over at The Inspired Bride. Color, printables, diy projects — there’s so much of all of these to be found in the issue, and I hope that it’ll inspire. Here’s a peek at some of the beautiful images from the issue to whet your appetite:

Suzy Ultman Lion Sleeps Collection

Lion Sleeps K & Company Suzy Ultman

Aww, Suzy Ultman’s new Lion Sleeps scrapbooking collection at K & Company is completely adorable! Suzy has such a fun and playful illustration style, and I think that it translates perfectly to a baby-centric collection of patterned papers, stickers, and embellishments. You can check out the collection at K & Company, and it’s also available at Target. Here’s a peek:

New Ingela Cards at Lagom

I’m a big, big fan of Ingela Peterson Arrhenius, a freelance illustrator based in Sweden, so I was super excited to see that Lagom recently added eight new greeting card designs to their Ingela line. Her work is so colorful and fun, and I love the retro feel of her illustrations!

Unfortunately, Lagom only ships to the UK and Europe, so if you don’t happen to live in these places, then you’re out of luck if you don’t have a friend in Great Britain or Europe who can hook you up with these paper goodies. But you can still take in all of the fantastic eye candy, no matter where you are:

Printeresting has excellent coverage of Flatstock 24, which was held at this year’s SXSW (South by Southwest) design conference, and the gig poster fangirl in me is in full swoon over a number of poster artists whose work they’ve featured, including Dan Stiles. I love, love, love his graphic style and use of color and would probably buy a copy of every one of his gig posters and art prints if I had more wall space and my wallet would allow!
