Valentine’s Cards from UK Illustrators and Designers

About this time every year I’ll talk profess my hatred of Valentine’s day and then still do a post on it… The thing is, I know I’m in the minority, and i think it’s good to have an excuse to champion some independent UK companies/illustrators/designers. I thought the best way to do this would be… Read more »

January Favourites @ The Stationer

I don’t want to make ATS all about The Stationer, because that’s just not that interesting for you guys. And I hope you will have seen that since I started The Stationer I have kept up my normal kind of content. One thing that I thought would be nice to do though is to do… Read more »

Book Review: Cut It Out! by Poppy Chancellor

Paper Home by Esther Thorpe

A few weeks ago I was really excited to be invited to an origami workshop with Esther Thorpe, in celebration of the launch of her new book, Paper Home.

Moustache Stationery: Shabby Chic

I’m going to start by saying that I think Shabby Chic is the wrong name for this Moustache Stationery box… I think it should be called “Lifestyle Blogger’s Dream”. I mean, look at it, there’s rose gold, perspex, blush, mint, geometrics, pastels. Even the card saying what was in the box had marble print. Need… Read more »

PAPERGANG!

I recently featured some Ohh Deer products, if you remember. They then offered to send me one of their new subscription boxes. It’s called Papergang, it costs a tenner (£9.95 to be precise) and is delivered once a month. They popped in this cute postcard with my box, which whilst I found mildly amusing, my… Read more »

Ohh Deer, Ohh Deer!

I blogged about Ohh Deer in my very early days of blogging (I won’t link to it, I was pretty bad back then!) with a bit of a wish list. Well now my wish came true! Ohh Deer sent me a few bits to share with you guys. Some I chose, and some is stuff… Read more »
