Collection No.19 – in the post throughout April

As we move into our SS16 collections, we’re capturing colour and brightening things up – celebrating neons, beautiful pastels and some gold foil thrown in for good measure. Before we unveil this month’s collection that’s in the post to our subscribers, blogger Lucy Heath @capturebylucy is in need of a mention here. She’s kindly shared…

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…

CardNest’s City Guide: Bristol

Bristol, here in England is a beautiful city. It’s also CardNest’s home.

Collection No.18 – in the post throughout March

Spring, in the UK at least, is finally starting to blossom. I’ve been buying a bunch of tulips every week while they’re in season (see here and here) and it won’t be long until we start to see peonies (one of my favourites). We’re brightening things up a bit for this month’s collection, and we’re…

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…

An interview with: Sophie Corrigan

For February’s CardNest mailout, we worked with illustrator Sophie Corrigan to create a new and exclusive design for our subscribers. We’ve always been such big fans of Sophie’s unique illustration style, and have a fondness for her ‘anatomy of’ designs, where she creates whimsical descriptions of all manner of creatures. She created one just for…

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)…
