PAPER GOODS - my mind's eye

For today's Friday Eye Candy I have turned to scrapbook and paper company My Mind's Eye. I have been looking at their fab stationery and party ranges which highlight some gorgeous colour combinations and stylish prints. New arrivals include a range of copper notebooks, and patterned paper fans. Here are some of my favourites and you can see more online at My Minds Eye here.

GREETINGS - card & wrap round-up

Today Print & Pattern focuses on greetings. Here are some of the cards, and a couple of wraps, that I have seen lately whilst out and about. We start with UK favourite John Lewis where this triangle card (above) by Portico caught my eye. The two sheets of wrapping paper (below) with cacti and cut out type are designs by Paper Salad....

John Lewis have also launched a new range of 'own brand' exclusive greetings cards that feature lovely painterly designs...





And also at John Lewis these designs stood out as colourful and interesting...


These designs below were spotted in Clinton cards......



 And below four pretty designs snapped in Next.......



These 'Spirograph' style designs from Lizzie Chancellor caught my eye in a Top Drawer review. Lizzie also has stylish metallic geometric designs and age cards that feature mark making, as well as delicately painted designs.










All the cards below were spotted on a day out at Rosebourne's garden centre in Hampshire which stocks designs by companies such as Paper Salad, Ilona Drew This, and Caroline Gardner....
