Mark and Zoe, the Scotland-based duo also known as Mr. & Mrs. Yoke, create hand screen printed paper goods, tea towels, and bags that are instant, visual pick-me-ups. Their fun collection recently grew to include even more wonderful greeting cards and art prints (psst, a great gift idea) in a palette of sunny yellow, hot pink, electric teal, and bright orange, and these delightful goodies will surely bring a smile to the face of anyone lucky enough to receive them.

I am SO jazzed to see more independent stationers introducing rubber stamp collections! Wit & Whistle just launched an awesome new line that includes sweet and witty stamps ranging from stylish and practical – “please do not bend” and bookplate stamps – to just plain fun stamps that will add a bit of whimsy to envelopes, cards, and paper crafts – hello, little ant and cute mail snail! Head over to Wit & Whistle to check out the entire collection.

Inspired by Scandinavian design and folk art, and with a love for color and pattern, Sydney, Australia-based paper goods designer, Ella Leach, creates greeting cards, notepads, and art prints that are filled with vivid hues and wonderfully whimsical illustrations. Ella’s online shop is a feast for the eyes, and even though it’s a little too early to start talking Christmas (is it?), I have to say that the holiday card collection (Bethlehem card shown above) is my favorite. I’m completely enamored with the bright, non-traditional colors and lovely illustrations!
Ella Leach Designs ships internationally, so you can pick up a bunch of their pretty paper goodies wherever you’re at in the world. And check out their stockists page to see if there’s a paper shop in your area that carries the range.

I had so much fun in the Kate & Birdie booth at the National Stationery Show this past May, and one of the big reasons why was because I got to gawk at oodles and oodles of their lovely gift wrap sheets. I was in wrapping paper heaven!
Well, fellow gift wrap fans, Kate & Birdie’s newest designs, which include everything from berries and bicycles to ice cream sundaes and baby buggies, are now available on their site. So, like me, you can now gawk at the oodles of lovely designs and pick up some beautiful wrapping paper for your gift packages. Yay!
