Cartolina Collection XII

We have new cards at Cartolina. So exciting!
This time we've gone with a vintage circus theme. Imagine, it's the 1930s, and the big top just rolled into town. The performers have gone to get their portraits taken, starting with the strong man who's so proud of his tattoos! We have a strong man, a trick roper, a juggler, a ringmaster and a trapeze artist. We also have some crazy characters leaping over elephants - 'Happy Birthday from Your Crazy Friends' (I think we all have some of those!) We managed to source some beautiful, vintage circus imagery and combined it with our own illustrations and we're really proud of the results. Hope you like them. If you'd like a line sheet just give us a shout!

Last but not least, we have a sweet new congratulations card - we were really needing a congrats card - I think this will fit lots of ocassions - don't you? For more info on Cartolina cards visit our website at

Oh my gosh it's busy at the studio these days. I'm sorry that I've missed a few posts here over the last few weeks. I love blogging and I have so much great stuff bookmarked to show you. We have been working very late hours and some days it's just too late to blog. Forgive me - things will slow down next month - trust me - I know!
When I saw these globes I responded with an OMG! I absolutely love what they do at ImagineNations. Take a look and pick your favourite - there are lots to chose from!

Inspiration - trim time

Loving this linen trim - you could do something super pretty with this don't you think? From Dishy Vintage.

Wall paper - on it's side

Nice wall paper from Anthropologie. I turned this on it's side so that the images didn't downsample too much - it still looks great though - doesn't it?

Untitled Art

These caught my eye at the weekend. Very beautifully made. Each tile has embedded magnets and they can be arranged and rearranged as you wish. Recycled wood of all shapes and sizes - lots of vintage, repurposed salvage. Really well done. From Untitled Art.

Window shopping - Task.

Mmmm, I like! I remember seeing lots of these in the markets in Istanbul - though I think they were hammered silver. This one is fabulous and you can buy it at Task.
