Happy Halloween! Today we have a treat instead of a trick for you – a giveaway and vendor/guest post by one of our new multi-advertisers Rice Studio Supply!

Good for your prints… Good for the environment!

Rice Studio Supply presents their new Artisan Portrait case.


rice studio supply

While traveling in India, Scott Rice visited a village where the art of paper making has been practiced since 1590. Handmade paper is crafted from 100% recycled cotton fiber. The stock is acid free, archival quality, and simply beautiful. Scott knew this was the answer to your requests for stylish photo packaging that is safe for photos and safe for the environment.

eco chic Rice Studio Supply

The Artisan Portrait Case is an eco-friendly presentation package with natural deckle edges. The paper is handmade one sheet at a time, using natural products, so no two deckle edges are identical. The deep cocoa color is available in 5×7, 8×10, 8×12, 11×14, and 16×20 sizes. Rice Studio Supply will sell these handmade products from eco-friendly paper at the same cost as mass produced wood pulp papers.

eco chic Rice Studio Supply

For one week from the date of this post, Paperie readers can order the new Artisan Portrait Case at the 500-quantity price, regardless of how many you order (that’s a 30% discount off the each price). Shipment will begin the first week of November.

But couldn’t let the weekend start without a big giveaway / guest / vendor post — some new packaging photos — contest winner announcements — and a big Halloween sale from my favorite packaging vendor. So read on and make sure you don’t miss anything…

We’re excited to have the Anima Dolce Design Boutique here today for a giveaway and vendor / guest post!

Anima Dolce flowers

I’ve written a post for Paperie Boutique before about how I was inspired to create the branding for my photography business, Anima Dolce Photography. I’m back this time to share my inspiration with you on how I branded my new online shop, the Anima Dolce Design Boutique.

Last month I was searching through Etsy for props, as I do daily (it’s a real addiction), and I was trying to find headbands to not only match my new Bad Sass backdrops, but to also fit my style. I wanted smaller headbands with colors that you might find in a candy shop. And that’s when it hit me—I should make my own!

So while I was still on Etsy, I searched for fabric flower patterns that I liked and fit my style. Blossom and Vine had just what I needed. I purchased fabrics in colors that reflected a candy shop and I started cutting. But with all these cute flowers made, how would I brand it?

Anima Dolce grape squeeze

At the time, my site was a dark plum color found in the Spice paper pack by Sassy Designs. But that didn’t seem like a good color palette for my candy shop. It was too dark and heavy for what I wanted.

Anima Dolce Photography

So I started looking through my Sassy stash to see if any color palettes inspired me. I’m a Sassy Designs junkie, so I knew I could find something that would inspire me.

The style in the Caroline paper pack was just what I needed…the polka dots, the stripes, the colors—it was perfect! I had just finished creating a mini book with the Blue Sky template from Oh Snap Boutique and I loved the frame, so I borrowed it for the shop logo. I think the final look really reflects that elegant candy shop feel that I was trying to achieve.

Anima Dolce header

The boutique opened on Wednesday, October 5th and includes some special headband lines: circus candy and lollipop shop. I also have to give credit to my husband, Chuck, for helping me name all the flowers. (He’s quite good at coming up with names.)

And I don’t think I could finish this blog post without giving away some “hair candy”!

Anima Dolce packaging card

Three lucky winners will have the chance to choose a flower and finishing (elastic headband, ponytail holder, or hair clip)! Here are details how to enter…

A few days ago I linked FREE Moo holiday sticker and minicard template downloads for the holidays / Christmas. Moo asked me to create new 2011 templates for their sticker labels and round sticker lines. I was happy to oblige and I’m passing them on here as well!

Below you will find two FREE sticker label templates (one is a holiday-themed mailing label, the other a holiday themed gift label) and FREE coordinating round “postmark” stickers.

UPDATE: There are now separate links for U.S. and UK downloads for those of you who prefer the date (“25”) before the month (“12”) in the design postmark. The flag icons will help direct you to the download-version you prefer.

emera circle print tote inside

The above images show the (interior of the) bag filled with my own equipment. I did not fill any of the pockets. To give you an example of what the interior compartment holds, pictured above with the Circle Print Tote are a Nikon D700 body with grip, a Nikon 50mm f/1.4G lens, a Nikon 85mm f/1.4D lens, a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G lens, a Nikon SB-800, an Apple iPad2 with Speck iPad2 FitFolio Cover, and an Abie Designs camera strap. Here are the specs on the bag:

    • Water-resistant PU coated canvas with soft leather straps and trim
    • Zipper top for security
    • Quick-access outside pockets for phone, keys, ID and emergency mints
    • Generous interior zip pocket for very important accessories
    • Large interior compartment for iPad, magazines, and file folders
    • Modular Velcro dividers create seven padded, customizable compartments
    • Durable canvas interior lining
    • Small metal feet help protect the bottom of the bag
    • Bag size: 15 x 11 x 6”
