Frame It.

We sell a wide variety of 12 x 12″ patterned card stocks. Most of them are double sided and would be perfect for the scrapbooking enthusiast in your life.

If you don’t scrapbook, they look great framed and instantly liven up an Ikea frame.

Spring Is Finally Here!

May 13th, 2014

It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the cold winter weather to end here in Toronto.  We can now start to see the beginnings of a beautiful spring and summer.  Looking around the city you can really be inspired by the lush colours starting to pop up everywhere.

We currently have some amazing Batik Mums Nepalese papers in our windows that really let the light shine through.

Looks like we’re finally being rewarded for the long, cold winter that we had to endure.

I LOVE TOYS

May 7th, 2014

If you have not been to The Design Exchange in Toronto, GO! “This Is Not A Toy” ends on May 19th and it will delight toy enthusiasts of all ages. The exhibition is the world’s first and it features sculptures, figurines and artworks created by contemporary artists such as Takashi Murakami, KAWS and Huck Gee.

After going to the exhibition I had a compulsion to look at all things cute and needed to share a couple of my favourite “oh so cute” chiyogami designs.
