Oops, another posting over here at Paper Shop Ink has crept up on me and I’m not prepared. So, you’ll have to forgive me for bringing up Father’s Day so soon after Mother’s Day. But, I’m currently in design mode for Father’s Day cards, so I thought I’d go on an Etsy Hunt to see what others stores are getting ready early. Check out these green greetings.

Father’s Day – Gocco/Screen Printed Botanical Card by Anna Cote
Are you planning for Father’s Day yet? Got any great gifts you just have to get him? Don’t forget it’s June 21st so get thinking!
See you next week.
I was out shopping the other day and made a trip to my local bookstore. Like always, I headed straight for the card section for some store inspiration. However, something caught my eye along the way – a paper vase! It was beyond awesome and such a new idea for me. What can I say, I’m known for falling under a rock once in a while.
Sadly, I can’t show you the actual product as there was NO branding on it – tut tut! But, it somewhat looked like this only taller.

Of course, these paper home accessories are all over Etsy too. Here are some of my favorites.
Magazine Bowl by Rubbish Remade
Recycle Magazine Paper Vase by Too Crafty for my Shirt
Paper Bowl by Nico Papergoods
Understandably, being a paper addict, I am now obsessed with these inventive creations. As one to jump in at the deep end, I had to go on a hunt to find a tutorial to make my own. Check out this tutorial from Patricia over at A Little Hut – Recycle Project No. 7 – Magazine Bowl.
Guess what I’m doing this weekend?
What a great way to use up all those magazines that are collecting dust in your home. Come on, you know you have a stack just like me. Get creative!
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to start this post but I thought I’d just jump right back in to posting about all the good stuff this blog is about.
Just a few quick things first…. I’m glad to have the blog updated and I now feel better about the look and feel. I fell behind on getting the shop updated but it will eventually happen. I’ve spent the last few months working hard at my full time job and have also been consistently updating my other blog. I enjoy this blog though and vow to make a better effort at updating it frequently. So now I’m posting again on a regular basis but heading out of town until the 17th. I’ll try to post some stuff while I’m gone but will be back for sure on 6/17.
Getting back to Rifferaff Screenprinted Paper Goods. Shannon Riffe is the owner of this etsy shop which features silkscreened papers. All papers are silkscreened by hand onto 19 x 25 sheets of 70# text weight paper. All paper is made from 100% recycled content which is hand pulled, trimmed and packaged by Shannon. Thank you for the email Shannon!
Fish Lips Paper Designs’ products are made from 100% Post-Consumer recycled paper. Above are two of my favorite designs from the gift wrap collection. The site looks like it is in the beginning stages. I’m guessing we’ll be seeing Fish Lips around a lot more in the upcoming months.
