As the creative world gets organized with handmade planners, agendas and journals we thought there was a need for a little vintage gypsy twist. The gypsies have been making journals and books forever and now they are turning them into agendas, planners and more functional journals. This new collection was inspired by old fabric, vintage ads, old writing utensils, old fashioned agendas, victorian lace, telegrams, books of the past, words to remember, old documents and goodies found around the desk.
Order du jour ‘Order of the Day’ takes us into the beauty of the past while letting us plan and organize our future. Touches of pretty things should accompany our lists and tasks to remind us of the beauty around us. As we set the order of the day, the plans for the week or the goals for the year we can do so with a gypsy vintage twist.
We are excited to announce a brand new collection from 7gypsies, Ordre Du Jour. This collection offers a range of blank journals, agenda and planner themed papers, file folders, day, week and month cards and more. Each item in the collection was created to make getting organized and planning a bit easier, but all with a fun, vintage twist. We are just in love with this line and with our penchant for vintage, it is the perfect choice for our planners.
We will first walk you through the papers and share their goodness. Here are a few things you might not know about 7gypsies paper: It is printed on both sides, it is printed now on cardstock weight paper, it is printed on paper made with recycled materials, it is printed with soy ink and it is printed in the USA. We design all of the art in-house. We use vintage art pieces, images of old things, we design new art that looks old and we transform old art with updated sayings or ideas. Take a look at some of the detail in the pages and the special inspirational messages you will find throughout in a quirky, vintage kind of way.
Ordre Du Jour: 19567 Pen & Tell Her – The vintage western union telegram art has been transformed into a Goal Sheet that is ready to see a list of your goals….the vintage pen tips adorn the left side of the paper and inspirational sayings can be found all over – ‘enjoy this day’,’it feels good to be awesome’,’be happy, and ‘start today with a grateful heart.’ The last vintage card has been transformed to record your dreams. The flip side features vintage wall paper in all shapes and sizes that are ready to find themselves as book pages, agenda covers, folders, journal cards, dividers or tabs in your journal.
Ordre Du Jour: 19568 Break the Rules – side one features a vintage set of proof marks that might tell us of the errors, but we should only fix those that must be fixed, break the rules when you can and live outside of your creative box. Alphabets, books, rulers and a vintage type writer take us back to the days of writing, composition and putting your thoughts on paper. Side two features old fabrics and papers in tiny pieces that make the perfect dividers, backdrops and accent pieces to your books and agendas.

Ordre Du Jour: 19570 – Go & Be – Are we allowed to say this is our favorite paper in the collection? Well I guess we just did.

One for each holiday, reminders of fun activities such as flea markets, garage sales and farmer’s market, special days such as the first day of school, anniversary and birthdays and everyday events like remembering to donate to Goodwill, get the oil changed, date night and a visit to the vet. Each piece matches a piece of vintage art with a special event they are all so awesomely cute. Like the other papers in the collection basic backgrounds fill the back that can be cut, chopped, stripped, folded, die cut or used as they are in your project. We wanted to make sure when you chopped up the front that you had lots of tiny goodness on the back that could be used for tabs, dividers and little accent pieces.
Ordre Du Jour: 19571 – Days, Weeks & Months – This all-over paper is filled with vintage goodness and functional too.
