new: rifle paper co. calendars + notepads

I always get excited to see what Anna Bond at Rifle Paper Co. is working on. I love the soft feminine feel that her work has and the way she works so masterfully with color in each piece. Her designs remind me of flowers come to life- there’s so much color and happiness and lushness. Anna’s latest pieces were just added to the Rifle Paper Co. shop today and I’m thrilled to share a preview of my favorites this morning: a beautiful series of notepads, fruit and floral calendars for 2011 and a beautiful art print/calendar.

I’m a sucker for Anna’s calendars because they always feel so cheerful- which can be important when you’re stuck in months like January and February when the weather report seems to mock me with consistent “overcast and cold” reports. I love her new fruit calendar and the sweet little kiwis she drew for August. If I can just make it through the colder temperatures until those little kiwis come around, I’ll be good.

Anna also added a new botanical calendar and botanical calendar print to her site today- both are beautifully illustrated and feature different floral arrangements for each month. You can click here to check out (and shop) Anna’s new collection and check out additional preview images after the jump. xo, grace

*Anna kindly offered a 10% discount to D*S readers on these new pieces through August 30th. Just use the code ‘CALENDAR12′ when you check out.

More images of the new calendars continue after the jump…


amazing, going straight on my christmas list (which is getting longer by the minute!!)


Her work is always so beautifully done. I especially love the fruit calendar..will have to pick that up for my office.


Wow! If I was allowed to order from overseas I would. :)

Oh, and not to sound pompous or anything but kiwis are the bird. Kiwi fruits are the fruits you were referring to.
As a kiwi (the New Zealander), I can’t really see that and ignore it.

Love the blog!


I have loved her vintage telephone notecards for a while now, but these floral calendars are so so cute! I’ll have to get one…


Rifle Paper Co. always makes me really happy. I love these calendars. I think I’ll get one….now.

These notes and calendars remind me of Gwen Frostic prints. Check them out at


She’s my new favorite letterpress designer. Love her sweet illustrations and soft color palette.
