A shop that became due to a slight obsession with paper.

Being raised by a single father with three kids, we had to be resourceful. We didn't have a lot of money and I appreciated what we did have. I began crafting with anything around the house. I would make things out of paper, beads, paint, clay, and just about anything else you can think of.

As I got older, I continued to create for the family. Making scrapbooks and various home decorations led me to these banners. Since I had been shopping on Etsy, and was fascinated with the many crafters here. I knew I should have my own shop. So, in March of 2011 I opened my shop.

I feel it's best to keep the price reasonable for everyone, but the styles are priceless. There is a banner for anyone. If you don't see something you love contact me.

I hope that these simple yet unique banners make any happy home even happier!

(keep in mind this shop used to be called LoveStar1, you might be familiar with that name already)

I accept PayPal, Direct Checkout, Etsy gift cards, and money orders. Once your payment has cleared, your item will be mailed.

*If you pay with PayPal you have the option of a PayPal account or paying with a credit card through PayPal.

*Direct Checkout is available if you prefer to use a credit card without having to use PayPal. This is done directly through Etsy.

*Etsy gift cards are also welcome. if you have a remaining balance on the item(s) being purchased, you will have to provide another method of payment.

*If you pay with money order during checkout your item will then be considered sold and I will hold it for 2 weeks for you. Once I receive the money order, I will ship your item promptly. If you need me to hold the item longer, let me know and we can come to an agreement together.
All banners and bunting are ready to be shipped, unless you have a custom order.

If it's ready to ship, it will be shipped USPS in the timeframe given on the listing, as long as the payment has cleared. If you have a custom order it will be shipped in 2-3 business days, unless we discuss otherwise (maybe due to a large order).

Your banner will come to you in cello bag and a rigid mailer, which is difficult to fold or bend during the shipping process. I will send the tracking number to you via email on all domestic orders. This will let you know when the USPS expects it to be delivered. it will also let me know the package has arrived to you.

Unfortunately, USPS doesn't offer delivery confirmation on international orders. The customs number does track the package until it leaves the United States. If there are any customs' fee, they are the responsibility of the customer, since those are fees from that particular country and not by any cause of the seller.

I will always ship to the address on file. Please contact me in the transaction notes if you want the item shipped to a different address. I can easily do that.

Any shipping refunds over $3 will be applied. I am responsible for any undercharges.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do allow 48 hours from the time you receive your item to contact me about any issues you may have. If there is any damage to the item, I will request pictures to give me an idea of the severity. At that point, together, we can determine the best solution for the issue. If you need to ship the item back to me due to a change of mind, unfortunately, I can not cover the shipping cost. After receiving the item back, I will gladly refund as long as the item is in the same condition it was when it was originally sent.
Additional policies and FAQs
The paper i use is "normal" scrapbook cardstock. However, some of the paper is single-sided and some is double-sided. I try to buy the highest quality paper available. If the listing doesn't say, please contact me if you have a preference.

Please know that i am a one-person-shop. The benefit to this is a one-on-one buying experience. My banners are not factory made, I put each one together. If you have any questions please contact me, see my seller information below.

Please keep the following information in mind after you receive your item.
