Sunshiny Letterpress from Bellis Studios

Bellis Studios Sunshiny Letterpress

I’m loving Bellis Studios’ “Sunshiny” letterpress collection, filled with lovely designs in yellow, one of the most sought after colors of the year.

The “Sunshiny” collection offers a little bit of everything, including (clockwise, from top left): letterpress note cards, gift tags, bookmarks, and Mother’s Day cards, making it easy for you to add a little bit of yellow to your world.

Martha Stewart Crafts

I’ve been stalking the new Martha Stewart Crafts site for a little while now, waiting for it to open for business, so imagine my delight when I saw decor8’s post about the site’s grand opening.

Martha is the mistress of sophisticated craftiness, and I’m so excited to see that the paper items and craft projects on the site retain the understated elegance that for which Martha Stewart is known. Like there was any doubt!

You can purchase the Martha Stewart Crafts line online or at your local Michael’s craft store. The craft projects, gift wrap, and tissue paper pom poms are tops on my list, though I’m sure I’d take one of everything if I could.

Lotta Jansdotter Check Book Covers

Lotta Jansdotter Check Book Covers

These 100% linen checkbook covers by Lotta Jansdotter are stylin’. So soft, so pretty, such an improvement over the vinyl / plastic / pleather-y checkbook covers with the solar calculators that stopped working a decade ago … but I wouldn’t know anything about those. No, not a thing. $18 each at Peek Keep.

Actually, when I saw these check book covers, I realized that it would be completely awesome if designers like Lotta Jansdotter, Jonathan Adler, Tord Boontje, and many of the fantastic stationery designers and illustrators working today would create series of customizeable checks. I’d love to have those types of choices when I’m picking out new checks!

This is J Brag Book

Beware, fashionistas, this paper craving is for you! Who am I kidding? I slob around in sweats and a ponytail day in and day out, and I still love these fashionable brag books by Toronto based This is J. You can almost feel the buttery suede covers through the images, and the embroidery in contrasting colors is beautiful. Find them at Elsewares, along with lots of other wonderful paper goodies from independent artists and designers, for $68 each.
