10 Things We Buy at Paper Source

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Our first visits to Paper Source were pretty magical! We adore this store! Paper Source offers basic gift and craft supplies, one of a kind gift ideas items, as well as all of our favorite stationary brands such as Rifle Paper Company, Snow & Graham, and Cavallini. Here are the things we buy:

10 things from paper source

 

1. Craft kits: We can’t wait to make all THESE adorable crafts with our girls. Isn’t THIS wreath kit impressive?!

2. Ribbon: THIS is Em’s favorite ribbon EVER!

3. Greeting Cards: We save more expensive greeting cards for milestone birthdays and anniversaries. Loving THIS one. They also offer packs of cards at a great price, but they sell out quick! THIS card is only $12.50 for a pack of 10.

4. Stickers: A very cheap and easy way to make your own cards, gift tags, place settings etc. We love THESE basic b+w ones. 24 for $2.50.

5. Calendars: Even now most of our scheduling is on google calendar, Paper Source convinces us every year we still need a beautiful one too! See the full selection of 2015 calendars HERE. Em uses hers exclusively as a birthday calendar…see HERE.

6. Gift wrap basics: We love Paper Source’s selection of basic gift wrap, especially for favors and Christmas. We love THESE clear, fold-over and food-safe cellophane bags. 100 count for $6! Loving THIS Christmas gift wrap set from Cavillini. See all gift wrap HERE.

7. Pens: THIS one is our current fave, and seriously makes our handwriting a little better! $1.95

8. Single sheets of wrapping paper: We rarely use these pretty papers to actually wrap gifts. Instead we frame them and hang them as art. THIS one is going in Jane’s room.

9. Twine: Lasts forever. Amazing price! See HERE.

10. Gift Ideas: The store and website is filled with great gift ideas. We love THIS tea towel, THIS art set for the kiddies, and a good notebook is always a good idea!

Aren’t they just the sweetest?!

They have many designs and we thought they’d be the perfect little notebook to keep lists in your purse or to give as a gift.

Love cute and little unexpected finds!

Bunnies By the Bay Record Book GIVEAWAY!!!

Monday, June 9th, 2014

Congratulations to Rachel!!!! Thanks to all who entered!!!

We’re so excited to kick start our week with a great giveaway!

A Bunnies By the Bay Record Book!

I started to look for a memory book almost as soon as I found out I was pregnant. My parents had one for each of us, and it’s something I always knew I wanted to do for our children.

I was so happy when I found this one by Bunnies By the Bay. First off, it’s the cutest thing ever, with adorable illustrations, but most of all I love how easy it’s been to record all the little details I don’t want to forget about my two little ladies.

On another note, I’d just like to rave about another couple Bunnies By the Bay products!

My girlies are getting to the age where they can really begin to enjoy their toys and they are just in love with their Blossom’s Lulla Bunny Bye Binkie Blankets and Bunny Wrist Rattles (which they like on their ankles)!

They are sooo incredibly soft! The babies love them against their skin, and give us lovely giggles when they hear the rattles. Too cute.

Be sure to check out the entire Bunnies By the Bay line on their site (link HERE). You’ll be spoilt for choice!

Oh, and don’t forget to enter for the book :)

 

Custom Printable Invitations: Em’s Baby Shower

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Em’s shower was planned at the very last minute, since we had a surprise visit from Hels, our other sissy. With hardly anytime, we needed the invitations to go out as fast as possible, but we still wanted something custom and (obviously) very cute!

We hit up Etsy and found the Sunday Designs Shop, which is TOTALLY ADORABLE! They offer a great collection of printable invitations. There are sooooo many cute designs, the only hard part about the process is choosing which one you like best!

We chose the Antique Pram Shower Invite, which reminded us of our British roots! Next, we just emailed our information over, and within a day or so they emailed us a pdf.

We printed them over at FedEx Office, on thick card stock and cut them to size.

For well under $20, we had our perfect, cute and custom invites ready to go. You can’t beat that!

It’s funny, but whenever I make something I’ve seen on Pinterest, it gives me a sense of productivity, like I’ve accomplished something!

I’d pinned these free printable Easter cards years ago, and this year I actually got around to printing  them out and adding a ribbon. Aren’t they adorbs?!
