NSS Bound – Carta, Inc.

Now that the stationery show is just over a week away, I'm getting more and more excited to see the new stationery designs and collections from some of my favorite designers who will be exhibiting at the show.  Angela Liguori from Carta, Inc. sent over a sneak peek at her new line called Francobolli — which means "stamp" in Italian, a fitting name as each card features a vintage postage stamp:

In addition to the vintage stamps, each card features hand lettering in black ink on Italian Rossi paper — with a total of 24 cards in the collection.  I can't wait to see them all in person!

Spring Tote Bags

I must already have a couple dozen, but I just don't think I can ever have too many tote bags.  I love this idea from illustrator Claudia Pearson for seasonally-inspired totes — and her design for Spring is just too cute:

I also love her Spring tea towels!

Dapper Paper

This card from Dapper Paper — a husband and wife design duo out of Raleigh, North Carolina — might be a teensy bit late for Mother's Day, but would be great as a Father's Day card for a Dad who really likes to cook or even as a birthday card:
