Holiday Papercuts by mrYen

mrYen Hand Cut Happy Holidays Papercut

Papercut artist Jonathan Chapman, aka mrYen, has released an amazing collection of holiday-themed papercut goodies this year. Creations include the very limited edition  Happy Holidays papercut (only 10 were made, and they were all hand cut by Jonathan) that would make a fantastic holiday gift for a paper art loving friend, a quartet of lovely, hand cut holiday greeting cards, and coordinating gift tags. Pretty wowsa, right? I love the red and white color palette, too.

I’m swooning over all of the beautiful new art prints from Eva Juliet. The new Art Culinary collection includes four prints featuring different berries (strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, and cranberry), and I’m absolutely loving the colorful illustrations and gorgeous hand-lettering. Prints  from this collection are available in both English and French, too!

Weekly Wrap #47 : Gifted Magazine

Weekly Wrap

Gifted Magazine

Have you seen the debut issue of Gifted Magazine, created by Ez of Creature Comforts? If you haven’t yet checked out this awesome new e-magazine, which made its debut this week, then I’d advise you to head on over and do so because you’re in for a big, big treat.

The magazine is filled with fantastic gift ideas for everyone on your list, as well as super great craft projects (wreaths, ornaments, plaques, paper snowflake decorations) and printables (gift wrap, tags, cards). One of my favorite features from the issue was the cover story, Gilty Pleasures (p. 113),  by Sally Shim of Shim & Sons. Metallics are a hot holiday trend this year, and Sally shows you several ways to add some golden sparkle and shine to your holiday gift packaging.

Also, be sure to check out the super cool gift wrap guide (p. 209), where you’ll find tons of gift wrap and embellishment product suggestions. Lots of great ideas to be found!

Martha Stewart Crafts put out some great Halloween paper punches this year, and the new Christmas paper punches in her line are pretty great, too. Two of my favorite holiday themes are snowflakes and snowmen, so my favorites are all of the ornate, detailed snowflakes punches that have been added this year. Here’s just a taste of what’s available:
