Washi Tape Cards

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

We recently got in some new styles of Washi Tape.  There are some awesome new patterns that I thought would make great cards using our blank folded card packs.  We got in the same pattern in multiple colours which creates interesting graphics when combined. I love how simple and easy adding Washi Tape can be with such a polished look.

We got a lovely floral pattern in three different colour ways called “Shigemi” which translates to “thicket” in English.

There are two different styles of geometric patterns in similar colour ways that look awesome together.

The electric pink and blue colours make for an eye catching stripe.

Come on in and take a look at what we carry in store.

A little inspiration…

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

One thing you hear a lot from customers at The Paper Place is “What do you use all this paper for?” The answer is… well almost anything you can think of really. We carry many types of handmade and machine made papers people use for booking binding, origami, details in invitations for weddings…. the uses seem varied and infinite!

We also carry lots of quirky stationery, greeting cards, office supplies and small gift items! I thought it would be fun to pick some of my favourite papers in the store, and match some of our smaller items with them. Perfect for a little inspiration, or maybe a gift idea for a paper lover!

IMG_0452One of the most popular types of paper we sell is our Japanese Chiyogami papers which are silk screened with various designs on Kozo paper. We carry over 600 designs in store, and 900 on our online store! This one is newer to the store and one of my favourites, the background a beautiful mint colour and printed with layers of metallic cranes. We carry lots of little sample packs of different paper, such as this Japanese Paper Sampler, if you are shy of commitment to a full sheet. I chose a Katazome postcard with a beautiful floral print and matched it with a gold envelope and some Japanese brass pens and pencils to write and send some snail mail!

 

IMG_0445The nautical trend is always popular on the Runway for spring, but you can find some sailing inspired items in our store too! This Japanese Katazome paper is stencil printed with this rope pattern. I chose a letterpress notebook printed with all things beachy. If your giving a sea themed gift, don’t forget a laser cut card and some Jones paper pens to jot down a love note with.

 

IMG_0444We don’t only carry paper from Japan in store. We just received a new stock of patterned paper from Germany. Fun geometrics patterns come in wrapping sheets, journals (as pictured) origami paper and other little treasures. We are also restocked with popular clutch pencils and heavy brass sharpeners. Why not pair those with this cute embroidered pencil case?

 

IMG_0455Spring is in the air… and this modern printed wrap is leaving us hopeful for warmer weather. This chartreuse Ted Baker journal emulates the leather work on a pair of brogues. Some colourful and fun washi tape and some fine felt tip Le Pens make a lovely set!

 

IMG_0443Our Nepalese handmade papers come in many patterns and colour ways as well. This pattern printed in black on kraft paper has a bit of a creepy vintage feel. A Parisian inspired notebook, a luxurious set of Black Wing pencils and these pencil sharpeners made from vintage spools of thread. Top that off with a card that doubles as a palm reading guide, how fun is that!

Old Soul Journaling

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Some of us old soul types can always use a place to put our daily thoughts and ideas down onto paper. What better place than these beautifully vintage styled journals.

They come in four styles with a touch of old Parisian design. Inside you will find three styles of paper; lined pages, grid on kraft paper and perforated blank sheets for those quick notes. The Musique styled one even comes with 122 pages of sheet music for that new tune you may be playing around with.

Two of my favourite things are vintage styles and a good sized notebook. With a total 288 pages, that should give you plenty of space to write to your heart’s content.  Come in and take a look at them.
