Katydid Paper Goods Emporium

Katie Sims has been printing cards with her trusty Gocco for ages, but most recently she opened 'Katydid Paper Goods Emporium', an online store featuring her gorgeous hand printed cards as well as a carefully selected range of new + vintage books, stationery, Japanese washi tape and other papery goodness. It is a feast for the eyes and a must-visit for all stationery addicts.

And she is always coming up with new card designs, like this awesome one - what a clever lass.
