Folk Ornaments and Pattern Vectors

I’ve been noticing the resurgence of European folk patterns in stationery designs of late so imagine my delight when I came across these downloadable folksy graphic beauties!


The website is originally in Russian but you can do a quick Google Translate of the page (by keying in the URL) for easier navigation. Scroll down the bottom of the page for the EPS/vector download links and have fun exploring!

Love Stamp Inspired Freebies

Oh yesss. It’s nearly impossible for me not to join the love-fest around blogland the past few weeks brought about by this latest incarnation of the USPS Love Stamps:


The colors, the illustration, the lettering = LOVE ;-)


It didn’t help either that two of the most creative bloggers I know had come up with some awesome Love Stamp- inspired freebies to share! That’s right, I’m laying all the blame on Kristen and Erin, he he.

From Erin at Vale Design:
Note cards and address labels


From Kristen of Paper Crave:
Patterned paper designs

(you can use as gift wrap, envelope liners or for scrapbooking projects)


Oversized gift tags
(use as place cards or mini notes)

Speaking of love, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful Craftzine and Offbeat Bride blogs for featuring iDiY recently. Thank you so much for all the blog-love! We’re truly honored. To all our new readers, hello and welcome!
