More about Nicola

Expressing love across the miles with paper-craft

I first discovered paper-craft card making around 2003 when I bought a card kit from Lakeland. I started off slowly, learning the techniques and copying the examples given. As time went by my kit grew and I had completely stopped buying cards from shops in favour of making my own personalised cards.
My friends and family loved the personal touch so I decided to make some Christmas cards to sell. I didn't concentrate on selling all through the year though as other things were happening and I eventually moved to London with my then boyfriend and we got married. I started a new office job and continued to sell cards, also taking orders for personalised cards.
By 2010 I had my son, stopped working and my parents had moved to Canada, where my sister had also moved a couple of years before. Sending personalised cards to my family was even more important then as I couldn't see them as often as I wanted.
Mum came back for a visit in late 2012 and bought some cards from me, stating how the shop cards in Canada just weren't as good. That got me thinking and I took all the cards I had with me when we all visited in June 2013. I sold most of them and came back home to my normal routine, being a mum and making cards.
I started a blog and entering card making competitions, which meant I was making more cards than usual, so I decided I'd like to share my passion with even more people and my shop was born.
