Monday Makes – Paper Crave

This week, while we were having a think about the craft site we’d like to talk about on Monday Makes, we stumbled upon Paper Crave. And we’re so glad we did, as it’s ignited a need for endless amounts of pretty paper and stationary in our lives! If you’re a bit of a papercraft lover or collect beautiful stationary, this is definitely the site for you.

While this isn’t a site that is loaded up with projects that you can follow along with, it’s more of a directory where the author, Kristen, posts about all of her paper inspirations. That makes it the ideal place to go if you want to find lots of links to a variety of paper-related ideas.

At first, the site may seem a little daunting with the sheer amount of posts (did we mention that Kristen set this site up in 2006?!), but thankfully, she’s created categories, making it very simple to navigate. Whether it’s invitations, crafts or wrapping ideas you’re looking for, Kristen has created these individual pages to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. There’s also the quick picks page, where you can find an assortment of goodies that Kristen has been loving over the week!

We had absolutely no idea about the amount of resources available in the papercraft area, so we’re very pleased about finding Paper Crave. We can’t help but scour the web for pretty patterned paper now! Kristen also has an online shop, where she sells all kinds of paper-related goods, like die cuts, cute clip art and printables, so it’s definitely worth checking out!
