Relaunch and Rebrand

Hi all! apologies for the absence of late,  I have been exploring Europe with my fiance! Ooo la la...
The good news for you is that I have returned more inspired than ever, and will be working on new prints very soon. In the meantime though, we have rebranded, and relaunched PaperCrane to include our home decor as featured on Society6!

The More you Read the More you Know

I have been having a love affair with Dr Suess for quite a while now, and just love this quote.

The handwritten typography and chalkboard asthetic really adds to the whimsy of this quote.
How great would this print look in a children's bedroom or study?!

Wander don't Wonder

"Wander don't wonder"
You'll never know what's out there until you look for it.
Experience new things, challenge yourself daily and dismiss any 'what ifs?'
The ye old 'seek and you shall find' theory really does ring true.

So excited that the weather is warming up, I had been flicking through past holiday snaps of beaches and landscapes...something about the vastness of the ocean really puts me deep in thought, but then I need reminding to stop thinking, and start DOING!
The day awaits you, opportunities await you, so go out again and explore.

"A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well" don't crumble. Keep going! New challenges will make you stronger (the strongest in fact!)

Take a chance!

Brand new printable quote online today!

I've been playing more and more with watercolours here at PaperCrane,
and just love this splat! Quite often the perfectionist, there's something about
spattering paint all over a page, not knowing where or how it will land, that is quite liberating.
It made me think of this famous motivational quote:
"You miss 100% of the shots you never take", which reminds us to take a chance,
take risks, and step outside our comfort zone...if you never try (or try something new)
you will never know the outcome!

Testimonial from Gayle (NC, USA)

This invitation was created by Gayle of North Carolina, USA.

Gayle (a self confessed computer novice) purchased our Printable Toucan 'blank' notecard and used our 5 Hot Tips for DIY Printing tutorial to add her own custom text, and print the invitations herself.
How clever is she?! And the wording is great!

Our Toucan Notecards are available for download in our online store:
We look forward to seeing what you come up with too!
