Finally, A New Site Design!

Paper Crave Website

It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so excited and relieved to finally launch a new design for Paper Crave!

The new site has a lot of stuff that you’ll want to check out, including the completely overhauled sales & deals, collections, and shop areas. And a brand new directory area will be coming within the next couple of months.

One of the things that I’m most excited about is that the new design is responsive, so browsing the site on your mobile devices should be a much more user-friendly experience. Please let me know if you spot any glitches or issues on your specific mobile device when browsing the site. I’m already aware of a couple, and I’ll be working to resolve those issues this week.

In addition, I’ll be rolling out some brand new features over the next few months, so stay tuned for those.

Hope you enjoy the new site!

4 Fab Floral Paper Crafts + Printables

Spring has finally sprung around these parts, and I’m so happy to see buds on trees and early season blooms in the yard. The former owner of our house was known in the neighborhood as “The Daffodil Lady”, and I can see why. She planted beds of daffodils all around the property, and to see them come out after what seemed like an endless winter is a sight to behold.

Since I have flowers on my mind, I thought I’d share some of the beautiful, floral-themed paper crafts and printables that have caught my eye lately. Any of these ideas would be great to make for the upcoming Mother’s Day weekend!

On My Wishlist : Colorful Cravings

I am obsessed with color. Obsessed. I’m a sponge, and sites like Design Seeds are my water. In other words, I love me some color. Hey, there are worse vices, right?

Anywho, I recently purchased a new set of watercolors and some Gelatos (these things are awesome!), and I thought that would quell my color cravings for a little while. But no. I’m still a color junkie in search of more rainbow-colored goodness. Here are a several items that are high on my wishlist:

Star Sign Cards by Hammerpress

I am totally digging these new star sign letterpress cards by Hammerpress. The scribbly texture of the night sky is great, as is the rich navy and bright orange color palette. I can only imagine how wonderful these feel to the touch! A great alternative to the standard birthday greeting.
