I’m really not feeling the love for kids birthday cards at the mo. There’s nothing wrong with them but after a while they all seem samey and boring (snore). But on the weekend I stumbled across Ask Alice, a little store buried deep in the Australian corner of the internet and boy, did I like! Ask Alice doesn’t stop at making wow birthday cards, they also make gift tags, notebooks and postcards, all with bags of style and beauty. Apart from the super graphics, it’s the style of paper used that really bring these stationary bits to life. I could buy it all… if you’ve been reading regularly you’ll know that I’m a bit of a stationery fiend. The cards cost AUD20 for a set of 5 (isn’t the whale one a cutie?!), the gift tags are AUD15 for 6 and the notebooks are AUD18. Ask Alice ships to the UK from AUD3.10.
If beautiful notebooks are your thing, don’t miss the Darling Clementine ones.
