Meet June's Sponsors

Here we are more than halfway through June - it doesn't seem possible! - and I have yet to introduce All Things Paper's lovely sponsors, so without further ado:

The Paper Mill Store and its new blog for the specialty paper community, called The Paper, showcases handmade cards and other projects that have been made with papers from the mill store's product line. For example, Kimberly Crawford of Spellbinders Paper Arts created this attractive Plant Kindness card.

The Paper also alerts readers to competitions, such as the American Graphic Design Awards and The Paper Mill Store's own contest that is underway until the end of this month. An online retailer of mill-brand specialty paper, cardstock, and envelopes for graphic designers, wedding professionals, and paper crafters, the store is hosting a Facebook contest in which the winner will receive a ream (that's 500 sheets!) of any 8.5 x 11 paper of their choice each month for a year.

Choose from over 800 styles, colors, and brands, with options including metallic, linen, vellum, digital, recycled and FSC certified... every paper lover's dream!


I frequently mention Linda Thalmann and the girls at PaperPhine... that's because they have been loyal advertisers here at ATP, not to mention I love the clever things they are always making with colorful paper twine and paper yarn. These bangle bracelets, for example, can be easily created with the PaperPhine DIY Kit.

If you can't decide which color or weight of paper twine to order, perhaps start out with this nifty sample box that comes packed just as you see it here.

By the way, Linda designed a sophisticated Fine Paper Yarn Necklace for the All Things Paper book. You'll be amazed at how it's made... you crochet it with your fingers - I'm not kidding! See it on the PaperPhine blog.


Melissa Kojima of The Artist in LA LA Land is another loyal friend here at ATP. There's always something fun in her Etsy shop... this month I spotted a new selection of instant-print greeting cards for many occasions, like this cute dachshund birthday card.

You'll also find quirky articulated paper puppets, art dolls, and brooches. Aside from the paper maché items, everything in the shop is available for immediate download. You'll never find yourself without a unique card or gift for kids or kids-at-heart again!

  3. That Paper Mill contest is a doozy! Too bad it also contains one of my pet peeves - "contests" that require you to have a Facebook presence to enter. We don't all want to be available to everyone all the time.

  4. I am new to your blog and I'm already loving it. Everything I do is paper also, however I still consider myself a novice. I can't wait to try the paper twine. Thanks for sharing.
