Just like last year, we have teamed up with our friend and graphic designer Jessica Nielsen from the Netherlands once again, to create a range of downloadable Christmas wrapping paper to spread the Christmas cheer!
We love the modern twist on Christmas wrapping, with her choice of brown and red instead of the usual red and green. But still keeping the iconic Christmas trees and other Christmas-y graphics to not stray too far from tradition. I mean Christmas is one of those times of the year that tradition really comes into play.
A gentle reminder to everyone to get all their shopping done as soon as possible, so you can avoid the mad rush on the last few days before Christmas. Also, if you like the wrapping paper, do download it and wrap you presents in it! It's almost like a Christmas present from Jessica and Bloesem to you... download pdf's after the break ...

Jessica created one more pattern specifically for Bloesem Kids! We had a blast setting up the shoot with all the little toys. It really brought out the big kid in us.
Sheng Yang a super talented photographer from Singapore was kind enough to help us with the shoot ... hopefully we will share you many more images by him in the future for Bloesem but in the meantime have a look at his online portfolio ... or have a look at his instagram blog ... very entertaining!

Jurianne Matter definitely is on a roll here ... first the gorgeous B&W paper collection for VTWonen and now these fabulous forest friends.
Forest is a mini fairy tale forest full of gold
speckled pop-up trees. Each package contains 10 different pocket-sized trees ... use them as an invitation for your party, a just because card for a friend, as
a special gift tag or a place card for a dinner.
If you love leather just as much as I do then you will understand what I like about ANVE ... my father used to teach me all about leather during our trips searching for shoes :) ... i think it is the craftsmanship that I enjoy about it.oh and yes of course the realness of the material just like I love wool and linen.
Also for my Bloesem Wear collection I would love to have a leather pouch to pack the necklaces .. working on that to be honest, hopefully soon :)
But in the meantime see what the lovely people from ANVE have created.

A couple of weeks ago when I saw Jurianne in Amsterdam she told me ... and showed me :) ... her gorgeous paper garlands, flowers and lanterns especially designed for VT-Wonen's home collection ... available via the online shop.
Of course I wasn't allowed back then to show you ... but here they are... a perfect collection to decorate your home for the Autumn and or upcoming winter season. Who doesn't love black&white?
