Monday's quick start: Botanical Garlands by Anna Bond


Romantic sweet and above all beautiful ... that is how I would like to describe my new party garland. Perhaps you recognise the illustrations yes they are by my favorite stationery designer Anna Bond from Rifle paper & co. Chronicle books teamed up with Anna to make a garland that is super useful. The box comes with 80 circles, 72 alphabet tiles and 8 decorative tiles, so you can create any word you need to use for the specific party or event. Names, Happy Birthday, Welcome, just married or else ... you can use it over and over again....



All images by me, irene

Monday's quick start: Love Mae wrapping paper ideas by Marsh Golemac


I love collaborations and I am hoping to do more collaborations myself next year with creative people from around the globe.... and this project definitely gets me inspired. 

Marsha Golemac from 'Three Nations', who is a paper artist and crafter received a package from Love Mae, you know the label from Australia making awesome wall murals and other paper designs. The parcel was filled with beautiful wrapping paper from Love Mae and they told Marsha 'do what you love' ... that's what she did and see here the result .... paper wall hangings [one using a paper weaving technique], diamond shaped stackable totems, and a little cabin with some snow capped mountains. 




If you woud like to be creative with wrapping paper too ... use one of these great tutiroals on the Love Mae blog. Every month to share with you a project. I particularely liked the large flower blossoms ...

I know it is going to be a good week here on BloesemLiving when I receive an email in my inbox on Sunday like this from Darling Clementine. My absolute favorite Scandinavian paper design studio.

Of course I am honored Darling Clementine has given Bloesem the scoop for their new collection called: 'Harvest!'

The new series is by far their most extensive so far and consist of cards, posters, gift wrap, a 2013 calendar, tea towels, porcelain cups and a brand new line of their very own fine teas!   

All make perfect gifts for the Holiday Season. I have my eyes set on the calendar and the tea towels, what about you?             [MORE IMAGES]
