EM Papers

Downloadable templates haven't really taken off yet in the UK, but I'm thinking of starting to use them, because printing out my own card constitutes 'making' something, even if I didn't design it. Do you agree?

I love these designs from EM Papers. My favourites are these bookmarks, with pertinent slogans which I definitely need to see in large, bold letters, for example 'get out and exercise.' (Although if I was reading a bookmarked novel, I'm not sure it would stir me...)

Still, I don't know much about these things, but I think the white background of this design means it wouldn't use up too much ink.

Other appealing designs:




It's Father's Day in the UK this Sunday, so there's still time to sort yourself out with one of the Father's Day cards.

EM Papers has its own website, and an Etsy shop too.

PS On a totally unrelated note, was anyone else watching Mary, Queen of (Charity) Shops? - I absolutely LOVED it and keep watching it again on i-player. It's totally made me resolve to stop selling anything on eBay.

what a great idea. i'm thinking of creating some vintage-type labels for canning and such and i think that would work.

Agree about mary queen of charity shops. I love her, she should become a God. How can she be so nice and so powerful too?

She did a great job and I have already given some better things away!

I use avery's templates for business cards and envelopes and all other things..the art they offer isn't as wonderful as what you have shared, but they are free and adjustable!

I really like the design of orange flower on the darkish green background - it would look lovely fronting a thank you card.

Just finished watched the final episode on iplayer... so good even if all the old people make me want to cry! (I'm a sap!)

And yay to downloadable templates... I've looked at them a few time on US sites and thought they were such a nice idea.
