Cycling through the Post

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Two of my favourite things: my bicycle and letter writing.

So why not combine the two?

Tucked inside each envelope is a little packet of bicycle shaped paperclips. And there’s a 1974 bicycle stamp on every envelope.

Now it’s time to bike over to the nearest post box and get these sent!



Items from this post available at The Paper Place:

– Bicycle shaped D-clip paper clips

– Red and white striped origami paper

– Bicycle stationery set by Regional Assembly of Text

– Letter-pressed bike card by Enormous Champion



Vintage Inspired Stationery

Friday, July 6th, 2012

This month is Letter Writing Month here at The Paper Place; and who doesn’t love getting a little something special sent to them in the mail? I recently made some vintage inspired stationery for some dear pen-pals of mine.

I think that the Gampi Silk Tissue is probably one of my favourite papers right now.  It kind of reminds me of old onion skin paper, which I love.  I backed it with a piece of cardstock, attaching the two with Airmail Divine Twine. I used small rubber stamps for the text; which remind me of a vintage typewriter.  On the back cardstock I used navy Par Avion stamps by Cavallini (available instore).  To finish I used washi tape to create an airmail pattern on a plain white envelope. For postage I used vintage Canadian stamps from SendMoreMail (both available instore).


I also cut a piece of Kingin Stationery in half then stitched it to some colourful cardstock to brighten it up a little bit.  I thought that such a lovely handmade paper deserved a handwritten letter. I love its small gold flecks and the handmade edge.




Ahoy! Summery Nautical Notes

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Summer has arrived in Toronto in full effect.  Hello heatwave!  I sat down (poolside) to write some letters earlier this week.  Nautical notecards pair up perfectly with zodiac stamps and graph paper tape.


I’m planning a little bike ride to the Toronto Islands next week.  It’s our little piece of paradise in the city.  Let’s hope I get there more than once this summer!



Happy writing!



You’re Number One!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

I’ve been short on free time lately but still itching to craft.  What better way to spend an afternoon then to make cards using metallic gold and silver stickers?  The award ribbon stickers were perfect for my  typewritten “You’re Number One” cards.  (I also made a “Number One Dad” card since Father’s Day is just around the corner.)





With Titanic postage and silver starburst seals the cards are ready for the post!
