road trip

Yesterday we took a little road trip to the quaint little village of Stokers Siding home of my ma and pa and of Mae. It was a delight to meet the girls behind the whimsical brand of Mae ~ Peta, Emily and Bec (the third musketeer who is honeymooning) are the names behind Mae.

Mae’s delightful fabric wall stickers are designed with children in mind and are more than happy to be moved around - and scrunched up, smoothed out and rearranged again and again. They don’t mind a shower here and there either, after being rough housed by those precious yet impossibly grubby little ones. As well as being quite good looking (a bit modest don't you think), fun and unique, Mae is always doing her best to be kind to the environment, always supporting local Australian businesses. Mae uses ‘eco’ inks and recycled cardboard packaging, not to mention our stickers are reusable and with proper care (and even a bit of improper care) will last for years to come.

During our visit we were lucky enough to have a peek at their brand new product ~ Mae wrapping paper! Breathtakingly beautiful ~ I was in paper heaven. Emily had created the most beautiful wrapped presents - secretly I wanted to pack the empty boxes into my car and take them with me. My mind was having the good cop bad cop conversation "Now think clearly Nikki think of what our lovely customers would like it's not all about you you know"! Of course we had to have all of it because we know you will all love it and how can you stop at one or two beautiful pieces? You can't really - so without further ado we "present" to you :: Mae wrapping paper.

all Mae wrapping paper now available online

introductory offer only ~ becasue we are super excited to be stocking mae fabric walls stickers and decals we are offering our subscribers 10% off your purchases. Offer ends midnight 25 November 2010. Not valid with any other offer. Enter mae10 at the checkout.

Okay so two posts in one day - yes unheard of from me but I just had to share this with you.
I found this blog today through an amazing amazing designer ~ Emma from Emma Kate Creative. The moment I fell upon Emma's site I fell instantly in love with her cards, her prints and her words.

Some of my favourite prints ...

Emma has created a project called "Emma Kate Heart" where for every card sold she will leave a card in a random place for an unsuspecting stranger to pick up and cherish ~ the ripple effect. To read more have a look at "The Emma Kate Heart". Kindness at its best.

After discovering Emma Kate Creations I followed a link to another blog Beautiful You by Julie Parker. Julie has created a positive and inpirational space through her blog. It has certainly brightened my day ~ I hope it brightens yours.

10 things you didn't know about me

Thank you to Melli from Melli's Designs for tagging me in a fun game "10 things you didn't know about me" and then I need to tag 5 other bloggers .... so here goes

  1. I was born in Newcastle but spent the majority of my childhood hopping to various different locations as my Dad was a Psychiatric Nurse.

  2. I am married to a wonderful man and we have 3 beautiful children aged 14, 9 and 3.

  3. As well as my love Paper Scissors Rock Stationery I work as a Family Lawyer on the lovely Far North Coast of NSW.

  4. I am secretly in love with Matt Damon oh and Simon Baker (I invite myself to a girlfriends house whenever he is in town just so I can maybe just maybe bump into him - haven't been so lucky!)

  5. I love weekends by the beach on Byron Bay with my family.
  6. My pet hate is dishonesty.
  7. I have never travelled overseas and don't really have a desire to.

  8. In the 80's I had BIG hair and was addicted to WHAM (yep it's true).

  9. I believe that there is some sort of being after death.

  10. I could not survive this caotic lifestyle with my supportive family and Simone.

So that's me in a nutshell ...

So tag you're it ...
Look forward to reading about these lovely ladies

We love Frankie and we love Frankie even more for this little feature ... why because you will find these lovely cards right here at Paper Scissors Rock Stationery.

"Scribbling down a handwritten note and slipping under someone's door, pillow, cup of tea or open window is one of those simple little things that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and probably makes the recipient love you that little bit extra. If you love writing notes as much as we love getting them, head over to Belles and Whiselles where you are sure to find lots and lots of handmade paper goodies fit for any occasion, or no occasion at all."

belles & whiselles

Belles and Whiselles designs are sophisticated, fun, colourful and a little bit quirky. Their story is simple ... they are passionate about design and they do it so well.

Look what's new in store ...

Thursday, June 17, 2010


A couple of weeks ago we discovered Lox+Savvy and fell instantly in love with everything.  I adore all things vintage, the 60's and yes have to admit that the 80's are high on the "like" list.  We loved everything and had to come up for air after indulging for hours over the decision of what to stock - so we ordered "most" of the range.  Grab a coffee and enjoy this inspiring story of Lisa Loxley and Lox+Savvy x

Introducing ....

"I remember running through the aisles of the printing factory my father ran as a child, and how exciting all the stationery, [yes, staplers, thumbtacks, neon stickers etc] paper and printing machines were – and that was only one small element.

I grew up surrounded by family within the paper and printing industries (over four generations in the family!) which are all creative in their own unique way; My father is a printer by trade [my grandfather, great-grandfather & great-great grandfather were printers], who went onto be a paper merchant, one brother is a printer and the other a digital imaging specialist/graphic artist [& also an amazing artist] so it was inevitable that I would be fond of all things paper and printing! After completing a graphic arts apprenticeship, as well as a short stint in a design college, I opened up my own graphic design business, which I still run today - This has then led me to the evolving Lox+Savvy.

My collection of cards and paper goods has then started with this life-long love of paper, design and printing, and the passion to want to produce premium paper-based stationery collections, which feature some form of a renewable resource throughout each range. I’m a highly passionate, driven and hardworking individual [and not to mention a somewhat perfectionist] who wants to give my customer a quality, quirky, unique paper good product which we haven’t seen in the Australian greeting card scene.

Based in Sydney, lox+savvy’s ever-evolving collection of matching stationery includes: cards+envelopes, paper pockets, wrapping paper, bookmarks, gift tags, put-in-the-pocket note cards, Neon 3*fold shaped cards, note*it block pads, vintage thread, notebooks, as well as paper chains and handmade vintage button + buckle cards.

I have for a very long time found it hard to match a card with wrapping paper, or a card with a gift tag, using some vintage thread on a present, or finding a premium paper stock combined with strong, graphic colours and all made in Australia!

Each limited edition paper good has carefully been made in Sydney Australia, by use of natural materials, paper off-cuts or sourcing paper which has some form of renewable resource.

Lox+savvy’s hands-on approach to paper goods enables each item to be one of the most unique and closely detailed. For example, as I have found it enormously difficult to find the ‘perfect’ envelope for a card, I now print my own then hand-assembled each and every one!

Introducing ...


Lox+Savvy – a passion, flair and unique creativity for all things paper. Fun+quirky, stylish+classic, old+new, Lox+Savvy’s card and stationery collection features a range of unique and creative designs that venture from barbershop stripes to hand-sewn buttons.

Lox+Savvy ‘s ever-evolving collection of matching stationery includes: cards + envelopes, paper pockets for journals, wrapping paper, bookmarks, gift tags, put-in-the-pocket note cards, Neon 3*fold shaped cards, note*it paper blocks, vintage thread, notebooks, paper chains + handmade vintage button & buckle cards.

Each limited edition paper good has carefully been made in Sydney Australia, by use of natural materials, paper off-cuts or sourcing paper which has some form of renewable resource. Diversely textured and premium quality paper stocks, papers manufactured through renewable plantation forests or using sustainable forestry practices, teed bold colours, striking lines, eclectic mix of natural fibre fabrics and vintage highlights reflect the spirit of all Lox+Savvy creations.

This hands-on approach to paper goods enables each item to be one of the most unique and closely detailed. Each collection has its own story and mixes the best of vintage style with sleek contemporary lines materializing in beautiful and individual matching sets of paper goods and stationery.

Lox+Savvy’s new collections launching in 2010/11 are inspired by 80’s neons, colourful pastels, 60’s geometric shapes, textured paper stocks and our obsession with simplicity! New collections include black & white hues, symmetry and shapes, strong fluoro colours, pastel coloured pads, quirky new paper goods which all have a form of a renewable resource within each of them."

Photo Shoot with Mecollie Designs, I Dream of Cupcakes and The Cupcake Wrapper

A few weeks ago we were contacted by one of our lovely suppliers to join in a photoshoot and of course we were thrilled to be included.

The shoot was at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast. The photographer - the very lovely Dianne White from Dianne White Photography. We supplied cupcakes from our other gorgeous (if we do say so!) business. The Cupcake Wrapper wrapped our little treats in their lovely wrappers (soon to be available from Paper Scissors Rock Stationery). And the end result was delicious ...

xx Nikki

Some of Mecollie Designs invitations we stock at Paper Scissors Rock Stationery each pack comes with 10 invitations, 10 lolly bags and 10 stickers all for $25.

Beckoning Designs

Before we launched Paper Scissors Rock Stationery fell upon the beautiful handmade address books from Beckoning Designs and knew that we had to stock them. We have a range of fabric covered and paper covered address books, journals and notebooks. The address book is a must have purchase.

Words from Beck ...

"Beckoning Designs was conceived like most things out of necessity. After repeated feeling frustrated by the same old address book, I was looking for something so much more simplified than the traditional and outdated A-Z. After much searching and finding nothing on the market, I created my own modern version of the address book. After a lot of researching and feedback, I developed what I believed to be a far more user friendly and time efficient address book. After spending a year refining the new layout, I found out I was pregnant with my first child, so I gave myself 9 months before the impending arrival to design, construct and perfect the address book. I then expanded my range to include matching journals and notebooks. Funnily enough I was pregnant with my second child when I decided to expand my range even further into doing personalised wedding guest books. So another 9 month deadline was ahead of me.Our wedding guest books have become our specialty, with brides wanting something personal and complimentary to their wedding stationery. Beckoning Designs' stationery really represents, functionality and style. We believe stationery should be fun, practical, stylish and super user friendly. We understand many women are loyal to their stationery so it has be made with quality products and finished with gorgeous designs that represent their own personal style."
