PAPER GOODS - red cap cards

There are some truly bold and beautiful designs currently available from Red Cap Cards so it seemed like a wonderful chance to post up a showcase. Red Cap Cards is based in California and was founded by husband and wife Hal Mertz and Carrie Gifford. They collaborate with talented designers and illustrators giving them a platform to get their work noticed. Current artists include Carolyn Gavin, Kate Pugsley, Becca Stadtlander, Anna Emilia Laitinen, and Dinara Mirtalipova. Red Cap products can all be found online here and include cards, gift wrap and notebooks.

CARDS - jam & ginger/hallmark

And talking of lovely greetingscards a little bit of googling led me to admire these pretty designs by Jam & Ginger for Hallmark which I wanted to share. Jam and Ginger is the studio name of designer Janine Burrows who has also designed wallpaper for Scion.

KIDS DESIGN - sainsbury's TU A/W16

Today I have some snapshots of the latest Autumn/Winter children's clothes at Sainsbury's. They retail their clothing under the brand TU and for Autumn Sainsbury's have brought us Owls, woodland flora and fauna, and ducks in the rain. For winter there are plenty of bear designs for boys, either camping style, skiing, or in woolly hats. For girls their are Scandinavian style birds. Here are my picks of the boldest prints and patterns snapped this week.
