Festive Friday: 25th November 2016

Christmas is just 4 weeks and 2 days away, and we’re enjoying every minute of the build up! 1st December is when the tree goes up, and Christmas takes over at home (and in the Card Nest studio!). Before that happens, however, we’re getting involved in the Greetings Card Association’s ‘Festive Friday’ – a day…

2017 Planners: A Peek Into New Collections

Ok, so we might only be half way through 2016, but my attention is already being turned to 2017, as designers unveil the previews for their 2017 planners. I’ve recently switched back to pen and paper, as I was growing nostalgic over the planners I used in school (sadly, a long time ago!). While I could…

A trip to St Ives, Cornwall

I’ve recently returned from a week in St Ives, Cornwall, a real haven here in the UK. Having taken countless photos from my explorations, I thought I’d share them with you in a photo journal post here. Surprisingly, St Ives is only a few hours’ drive away from the studio in Bristol, and yet I’ve…

The best stationery shops in London – a whistle-stop tour

This week marks National Stationery Week, probably one of our favourite weeks in the calendar (for obvious reasons). I’m speaking for all of us as a devote stationery nerd – it’s a time when we need no excuses to top up our collection of scissors, pencils, notebooks and greetings cards. My stationery ‘addiction’ began as…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

I think it’s nice that Mother’s Day falls on different days around the world – saying ‘you’re the best’ to mamas, grandmothers, stepmums. We’re not always around to make the morning cup of tea, deliver breakfast in bed or give mum a night off from the kitchen, so if you want to bundle together the…

In the post this February

Collection #17 I seem to find it almost impossible to kick these posts off with talking about the weather. I’m so British, it’s ridiculous. Alas, I’m unable to avoid it this month as the wind has blown in our direction from the south east, as we pay homage to Mary Poppins in one of the…

A letter to the future me

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but haven’t our online lives become somewhat reflective? We take daily trips down memory lane with the help of social media. Take Timehop and Facebook for example. Every day we’re dosed with nostalgic feels. We look at what we were doing and saying one, two, five years ago, laughing (or cringing)…
