Upcycled Edgar Journals

I finally found a way to put those cool edgar postcards to use that I have been collecting for more than 10 years. Edgar cards are free postcards that you can find in many bars and clubs in germany. Some have advertising on them, some are designed by the company who distributes them and some have art prints on them.

I cut them to form a kind of register and filled them with all kinds of papers – some blank, some lined, some checkered, some white and some colored – to make writing lots of fun.

Airmail journals and stickers

I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been experimenting and working on some new stuff lately – I guess I was getting a bit bored of doing only memo pockets.

I just love the color combination of airmail envelopes and stickers. It always reminds me of my holidays in France years back when I was still school. So after making some airmail accordion file folders using envelopes I started to design some airmail stickers for myself to use for shipping my orders. These are my favorites – they’re also available in my shop

I also made some cute little airmail travel journals in red and blue. They all have a 1 inch hole punched in the cover which reveals the airmail sticker on the first page.
