August = Back to School.
It seems to creep up on us every year! Summer may be winding down, but honestly, school starting is just as exciting — especially when you’ve got little ones!
It only made since to pick one of our NEW Breathless Paper Co. Junior cards. They’re too cute. And the perfect way for your kiddo to say “Happy Back to School” or “Thanks for spending the summer with me” to their friends. Or to say hello to new classmates!
This card, Thanks for Being My Friend, just melts our heart.

July is… HOT. At least here in Nashville! We’re doing everything we can to cool off and enjoy family time while school’s out. We’re also prepping for trade show season! Things are busy, but we’re making time for quality time.
This month’s Card of the Month seemed fitting: Collect Moments, Not Things from our Heartward Collection.
This card sums up summer. Moments. Making memories. Taking trips. Playing outside until daark. It’s what we’re all about.
This card is a perfect “just because” card and a great reminder to send to anyone and everyone in your life.
Remember: Write More Love Notes.

Summer is nearly HERE! It’s grad season, wedding season, outdoor party season… the list goes on and on.
So we thought, what better Card of the Month to highlight than our Tiny Cards. Big Words. card packs. They’re newly designed and better than ever.
We’re obsessed with them.
With categorized packs (Strong Women, Love, Everyday, and Children), no one is left out.
Gift ‘em, keep ‘em, decorate with ‘em.
This month, we’re excited to highlight one of our favorite cards from our collaboration with Old Try. We love their aesthetic, and this message is one of our simplest.
“Y’all” is one of those southern-staple words that’s comforting, warm and a reminder that you’re home.
This card is special because of how open-ended it is. Sending a card just to say “hey” is something none of us do enough, and we hope that seeing this card can remind you to reach out to a friend or loved one and just check in. It makes a difference.
Remember: Never. Stop. Sending. Love. Notes.
One of our favorite new products was a labor of love not just on our end, but with another team of makers that we’ve long loved and admired.
The Sercy Studio is a company dedicated to selling little “sercies” that spark joy and can be passed along for generations.
We love their mission, and we thought that it paired well with the goal of Breath of Inspiration line. So we thought, why not collaborate?
Now, we have our mini Breath of Inspiration notecards, in beautiful packs, paired with a sercy. We’re so happy with how this turned out and loved working with The Sercy Studio.
Read on to check out our conversation with MacKenzie Williams, the heart and brains behind the company.
Breathless Paper Co: Tell us a little about the story and progression of The Sercy Studio and its mission.
MacKenzie: The Sercy Studio is a dream come true, but it didn’t happen overnight. After my first daughter was born, I decided not to return to my design job at a local architecture firm. But I knew I wanted to work! At the same time, my aunt was sick and received prayer beads. I loved the gesture and thought it could be expanded into a gift line.
My aunt Ruth also used the term “sercy” to describe a little gift given for no reason except love. I created my own version of beads and eventually called them “blessing beads”. It was perfect because I have always been crafty, and I got to put my Fine Arts degree to use! Seven years later, The Sercy Studio has evolved and become much larger than I could have ever imagined. We sell blessing beads and other sercies online and in over 300 retailers across the country.
BPC: What do you love most about your job?
M: Creating blessing beads for special occasions and milestones that people want to remember!
BPC: How long have you known Jess / BPC?
M: Gosh, 5 years? Jess and Matt were so kind to help me take my first professional photos. I was new to wholesaling and Jess helped me get off the ground!
BPC: How did this collaboration with BPC come about?
M: We have lots of time to create and collaborate mart week! Jess's encouraging cards sets were the perfect compliment to our little sercies.
BPC: Describe to us a little bit about the line you designed with BPC and why your brands align.
M: We hope the card sets and tokens make people smile! The cards have encouraging words and the token are a sweet addition. I know several people that keep the box in their purse and hand them out when they encounter someone that may need a sercy.
BPC: What do you hope this collaboration accomplishes and provides for customers?
M: I hope our card packs make it easy for our customers to be thoughtful and show love to others.
BPC: A large part of BPC's mission is to promote the importance of handwritten notes / love notes and sending real mail -- what is your personal opinion on the importance of this?
M: I have a whole cabinet at my house with stationary, cards and tags for me and my kids. I totally believe in the power of a handwritten letter! I am a gift giver but no gift would be complete without a handwritten note. And on the flip side, I think it is important to show appreciation when I receive a gift.
BPC: Anything else you want us to know?
M: I feel blessed to know Jessica and Matt. They are an inspiring couple that has been encouraging to me on my entrepreneurial journey.
SPRING IS HERE! Finally. We have some serious spring fever.
As Easter and Summer approach, we’re excited to be outside more with friends and family.
We chose this Card of the Month because it’s one of our newest additions to our Breath of Inspiration line, and it’s the perfect expression of the Easter season, and a reminder of the importance of taking the good with the bad.

Wishing a happy spring and a peaceful Easter season to you and yours, from Breathless Paper Co.
It’s the season of love! (But let’s be real… that’s always).
We’re all about February, because it’s prime time for love notes (our favorite thing ever). Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to just about significant others. It’s about friends, family… everyone. Every single person deserves and needs a reminder that THEY ARE LOVED.
We picked one of our favorite Deep Breath cards for the February Card of the Month.
Order yours now, and get started on a love note or two (or three…) All of our Deep Breath cards are perfect for saying how you feel.
