The Paper Files | 3 - Paper+Giveaway w/ Bre


Last week I met up with Bre at the Paper Source and we went crazy in there. I'm pretty sure we walked the store 10+ times and couldn't focus on what we needed. Yes, I said needed because paper is not a want. It will forever be a need with paperheads like us. Paperheads? Is that a thing? Once we figured out our theme, Photography, and picked what we needed personally in our lives.. we began the search for The Paper Files February paper giveaway!

Another thing we did on our paper date was hit up Sweets, which is around the corner from the Paper Source. You can read more about our adventure here. Bre told me the macarons from Sweets would change my life so I was very nervous and excitamated. I mean, think about it. I love food and not having sampled too many macarons in my 31 years of life.. I was really concerned and yet very giggly when it was time to order. Check out the pictures after the jump of Bre and me at Sweets. Photos were taken by Bre, of course :) Incase you didn't know, Bre is a natural light photographer right here in Houston. You can check out her work at Eighty Two Photography. This is another reason why we picked photography for this month's theme. I have paper homies lined up until April so if you are a paperhead, too, please let me know so we can work on a paper giveaway together!

Back to the giveaway, we picked four fantastical things that included paper and photography. First up is the Kate Spade photo album (affiliate) that holds 80 photos. We picked this because it's Kate Spade, duh, and because we want to encourage you to print your photos. These days people don't print them as much as they used to & the memories are stuck on a flash drive or external hard drive. Being a paper lover/scrapbooker, I like the idea of filling up a photo album with pictures of a certain event to look back at later.

Numbero Dos:Respect your Selfie letterpress notebook by 1973. Based in Brighton, U.K., 1973 bought their first Heidelberg press over a year ago and are now in full production with many different designs. Coming in at 4.76" x 6.69" with 48 unlined pages, this little notebook is ready for your text and doodles!

Numbero Tres:mini clothespin photo holder by Kikkerland (affiliate). There are 10 mini clothespins with a weighted high strength steel cable measuring at 59" so that you can display your printed photos, cards, memos or notes around your casa or workplace.

Numbero Cuatro:medium Poppin notebook in GOLD! with a tight elastic band, a back interior pocket, a bookmark ribbon to keep your place in the 192 white lined pages. I've been admiring Poppin for a few months now and I'm kind of bummed I didn't hook myself up with one. But this one is freaking metallic gold, y'all! Hard as shit to photograph, but it's such a gorgeous color for a notebook! Might go back for the Cobalt blue soon!

To finish off ThePaperfiles February giveaway, you'll receive a Thanks card with none other than Tom Hanks. I considered purchasing the entire set of Mr. Hanks, T. Hanks cards, but thankfully I had Bre there to knock some sense into me so we bought a single instead.
