About

Paper Meets Fabric...and then along came Vintage & Weddings

My nostalgia for paper goods, trimmings, and vintage items goes far back. Maybe it was all the rummaging through my grandmother's old things as a kid or those early morning treks to flea markets with my father that got me hooked, I really can't say. All I know is I'm hooked!

Early in my career, I went on to work at an interior design showroom and eventually went on to study decorative arts history at Parsons School of Design. I had already earned my bachelor of fine arts degree in college so the progression to studying the history of decorative arts opened up a new world of possibilities for me. Historical influences from past centuries are ever present in our modern world and continue to influence the design world today. What can I say, this fascinates me ;)

I've always been a "card person," meaning I love sending them, and I love receiving them. After years of collecting beautiful fabrics and papers, the two interests merged into one artistic endeavor, and Blue Thistle Studio was born. But it didn't stop there...and my Etsy shop evolved so now it is known as BlueThistleStudio2.

By now you can probably tell that I'm wild about color and pattern! I love seeing how colors react to one another depending upon their surroundings and context. And I find that when fabric and paper come together in my hands, I have a tendency to treat them as miniature interior design projects, finding just the right trim or embellishment to really make the colors in a card pop.

Today, I have the pleasure of designing greeting cards, along with a few new ventures ~ blogging about cottage style, wedding decor + favors, and offering a curated selection of vintage and shabby chic decor. In addition, I work at a funky vintage shop in real life, where boatloads of inspiration can be found around every corner.

My customers can be assured that I take great care in selecting the perfect materials and colors for every item I create, whether constructed from paper, fabric, or paint. I try to use recycled, sustainable, or repurposed materials in crafting my items whenever possible. And in this age of technology, gadgets, and impersonal texting, I still believe in the enduring power of a hand-written note!

Welcome and thank you for shopping with Blue Thistle Paperie! My cards are designed to warm the heart and nourish the soul. I hope to create a visual and tactile experience for the recipients of my greeting cards and put a lot of care into my handmade cards in particular, which can be saved as keepsakes and even framed. As much as possible, I try to use sustainable, environmentally friendly materials, such as bamboo card stock and vintage fabrics.

I hope you enjoy sharing your Blue Thistle Paperie greeting cards and vintage finds with friends and family! You can be assured that your cards and wedding favors have been made with great care, and that my vintage treasures reflect a passion for what I do.

Shipping
I ship via US Postal Service first class mail to the US, Canada, and the European Union. I'm also happy to ship to non-EU international customers as well. Please convo me with your international shipping destination so that I can offer you the most economical delivery method to your country.

Shipping charges reflect not just the cost of actual shipping but also take into account the cost of all packing and mailing materials.

If any technical difficulties are encountered during the refund process, an alternate method will be utilized to get the refund to you (i.e. a check or other form of refund).
