Mr. Crave and I are going to be moving into a new apartment this week. The bad news? I won’t have internet access for a little while and won’t be posting on Paper Crave again until early next week…if there are no snafus getting our internet set up in the new place. The good news? We’ve been waiting for this move for over a year, and we’re both so excited to be getting into a new place after living for over 7 years in our current apartment.
So, no cravings for at least the rest of this week, but I hope to be back with the paper lovelies next week. Have a great one, everyone!

Simple, bold, modern typography
Now, this is math I can get behind

Oh. My. Goodness. The Mr. Campy scrapbooking paper collection by Cosmo Cricket has set my little heart aflutter. The retro color scheme, the faux bois, the mini campers…eep, I’m palpitating here! Okay, I need to go lie down somewhere and calm myself, but you can see more collections and find out where Cosmo Cricket papers are carried on their website, and you can purchase the papers here, here, or here.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

If you’re interested in the ins and outs of running a stationery and/or greeting card business and are in the Los Angeles area (or you will be in late September), you won’t want to miss this workshop given by sister team, Heidi and Susie Bauer, of the wonderful Rock Scissor Paper.
The one day class will examine the industry from top to bottom and will cover topics such as developing a product line, licensing, printing and production techniques, design trends, sourcing suppliers, promotion, pricing, and much more. For more information, check this out. And to find out more about Heidi and Susie and Rock Scissor Paper, check out this great interview at My Wooden Robot.
I’m not so secretly hoping that this workshop is such as success that Heidi and Susie will take it on the road and hold a workshop in Boston, because I’d be there in a hot minute!
