Providing the Framework for Everyone to Tell Their Stories...
As a trained designer, I've been in the paper crafting industry for over 10 years.
My transition into Etsy entrepreneurship began with a family reunion several years ago. For the trip I was searching for a travel journal that was light and portable so that I could bring it along for writing and storing maps and memorabilia. I also wanted room, once I returned home, to add photos. So after some product research and development, I created my first Scrapbook Journal. Once friends and family saw my invention, requests came flying in... as a result "Paper Traits" was born.
Since then I have assembled Scrapbook Journals for other travelers, wedding couples, expectant parents, new mothers, graduating seniors, retirees, writers, missionaries, musicians and even a white house employee. Each journal I create possesses a unique feature for telling a particular story.
All my designs are produced in my home studio by hand. I am the sole member of Paper Traits' design, production, marketing and distribution teams! I love attending workshops and webinars where I can explore fresh ideas and incorporate new techniques into my business. My shop is growing and the discoveries are exciting! But the best part is receiving emails and feedback from people all around the world that are enjoying my products!
Here's one from Melissa: "So happy to have found this unique shop for gift-giving. I was just blown away because you cannot purchase items like these in stores (or anywhere else on Etsy for that matter...) - custom, high quality journals for all future travel, engagement, wedding and pregnancy gifts. You won't be disappointed!!"
My work has been featured and published both online and in print magazines.
