syko in print


As many of you have already noticed I have received the first collection of paper goods from my brother. I am very excited about our cooperation and I really like how these first cards turned out. It feels special to see your designs in print. I developed a special technique for these with appliqué on paper. Rasmus and I have big plans for other printed products with my designs, everything from shopping lists to wallpapers is on our list :) I have had some troubles sleeping, planning future paper products... What is your favourite kind of paper goods? I think napkins would be so cool...

I was overwhelmed by the response my cards got on flickr and etsy. Thank you so much my friends for going shopping!!!

Now when I got this back from the print shop I will be able to go on with the interactive project. I'll be back in a few days!

It's a very cold Easter here, the wind is freezing and we just got some snow! How is the weather in your part of the world?

Hi there,

This is the time to be in Tucson, AZ The weather is outstanding. Not too cold and not to hot....yet. I smelled orange blossoms for the first time this season! Lovely:)

Anyway, I wanted to tell you that you should print a calendar! I am a little obsessed with them:) I think that whether it be multiple pages or just one wall hanging, yours would be wonderful!

We might have a white Easter... It’s cold, rainy, we had hailstones, thunderstorms, snow... some sunshine in between. This is not the place to be right now!
I love your cards, so I did some shopping...
Being a graphic designer, I love paper in any form or shape!
A funny Advent Calender would be great! I have been considering designing one myself, but I would love to see yours!
Happy Easter!

Snow and hail here in the UK too. I am so happy to have managed to buy one of your sets.

Beth said...

So, it's not paper, but spring-y colored cloth napkins with your designs printed on them would be OH SO cute!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and leaving me such a nice comment about my inspiration project. Your cards are AWESOME! Love how bright the colors are!

hi,

LOVE all of your things, they make me feel good!

I think it's great branching out into paper goods. I was thinking about your house pouches you listed the other day - since you have a set of four similar designs why not make prints of them for "we're moving" or "our new house" cards. I would buy them since we'll be moving soon!

iN jOy,

Love the cards, love the book! Its been snowing here in England too, very pretty snow to match very pretty works on paper!

Katy said...

We've had snow, hail and some of your freezing wind here today. I am not looking forward to an egg hunt tomorrow...maybe I should have it in the house for a change this year?
The cards look fantastic - and I agree with the napkin idea. How lovely would they be? Too lovely to wipe your mouth on I think. And pocket tissues too. But again, I don't think I could wipe my nose on them - It would be wrong!

We've had rain, sleet, snow, wind and brilliant sunshine here - all of them on the same day!

Happy Easter xx

Happy Easter!

I'm so excited to be back after a few week break. You're doing such exciting things!!

I opened your blog, ran to etsy, and bought a bicycle print. Did all the others sell out?? I love your goofy birds... their legs make me laugh.

It is very cold (20 degrees) here but sunny.

I like Nicolette's idea of an Advent calendar. So... in your spare time... hee, hee.
Easter hugs,
Joni

Hope you had a lovely Easter.

Hello,
it's cold as well in the south of France. Other paper ideas sound good to me ! What would you think of a birhday calendar ? And it's not exactly paper, but a game for children like dominoes or a memo ? Anyway, I love what you do with fabrics.

natascha said...

Wonderful!!! They look great.

Jenn said...

OH Kajsa!!! I ADORE your cards and I am so sad I missed the first batch! I will not miss your next update!! They are so delightful and would look fabulous on anything and everything:) Your new mini quilts are absolutely darling as well! I just love your happy style so much:) Thank you for sharing your talent with us!!!

p.s. We got up into the 40's today here in New York. I can't wait for full blown Spring!!!

LizzieJane said...

What lovely cards and congratulations on how well they sold on etsy.
I am so looking forward to your future projects.

Megan said...

Oh bottoms, I'll have to wait for the next lot of postcards.

It's very hot and humid at my place ... hard to believe it is autumn.

Ruth's Place said...

The cards are fabulous!

I'm a sucker for A5 writing paper for letters and notes and stuff like that.

jaana*maaria said...

I knew your cards would turn about fantastic! Gratulation! Your design would look great as little stickers - paper napkins sound terrific too! Is anybody else a junkie for napkins + notice books + calenders + wrapping paper...?
All the best!

Jody said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful cards!

Berlinswhimsy said...

I love them and I can see them in all of the applications you mention here! Good luck!

Your work and blog are lovely! I just discovered your blog but I'll be visiting it more often to see what you are doing.

Net said...

Your work is just stunning! It looks perfect on paper goods too! I love the idea of a very beautiful shopping list. Notepaper and envelopes would be cool too for thank you notes and party invitations.
