Oh So Good

I heard from graphic designer Sarah Roberto from Oh So Good in Toronto this morning concerning her pretty new paper collection and I knew I’d be blogging it… Her flora notebook is my favorite, shown directly below in the first image…

I like that she is recycling vintage paper (including wallpaper) and using it for greeting cards, gift tags and notebooks, a growing trend and a very good one! And of course, her product shots and styling really show off her collection perfectly. It’s so important, and I’ve said it a billion times, to photograph your wares the best that you can for your store. A good product shot goes a long, long way!

Thank you so much for writing to me, Sarah!

    Beautiful products and great photo styling!

    Life’s been crazy lately and I haven’t visited your lovely blog lately, Holly. It’s refreshing to be back. :) Hope you’re doing well. xo

    Beautiful product and beautiful pictures! You are definitely 100% correct about having good pictures for your shop, very important :) It’s so nice to come here and get inspired by the talented people you feature! Now, I’m off to check out the notebooks because I sure do love to have something gorgeous to jot down all of my ideas in.

    So original and creative! It has to be nicer to write down your thoughts and sketches in one of these notebooks than on a moleskine, for example…and also to reapply unuseful materials for such lovely projects.

    I’m so happy to discover a local gal via your blog. Those paper products are so fetching. Luckily, a girl can never have too many notebooks.

    i get so giddy when i see beautiful stationeries, i just love investing in them, and sometimes i dont even use them, its so pretty it should be just stared at! haha im particularly fond of the maps notebook! it’d make a great travel journal as each paper is a different pattern, would make a niceeeeee backdrop to post your museum tickets and cafe receipts! :)
