I'm back from a bit of a summer break and my shop is in full swing again. I've added these new layered folders after crafting one for myself to use on vacation this summer. With all those pockets it holds a lot of memorabilia. Check it out!

About

I design vintage and repurposed paper products for Traveler's Notebooks.

I fell in love with the Traveler's Notebook system several years ago. Initially, it was very difficult to come by in my city. Slowly, during my travels, I accumulated pieces to fill my TN cover. However, pricing and lack of availability started me thinking about how I could make my own covers and inserts. Being a crafter at heart and loving the challenge of figuring out how to design unique products, I began making my own TN covers out of carefully selected vintage books. Soon, those around me started asking where I bought them and when I shared that I made them myself the requests started coming in. Starting an Etsy shop had been on my 'bucket list' and so 2017 became my year to open rePaperedShop.

At first, I was filling my vintage covers with store-bought notebooks and inserts and that was fine for a while. But soon I wanted unique inserts and ways to personalize my books, so I began designing my own inserts and other items. My first design challenge came when I needed extraordinarily large pieces of paper to create the various folders. I was looking around my work space and my eyes fell on the pile of paper shopping bags that I had been collecting (mostly because I could not bear to throw out all that good paper) and the idea for repurposing all those shopping bags into inserts became a reality.

Since starting to create, the ideas for more products just keep filling my brain. Anything from the tuck in an Anthropologie blouse to the pockets in a make-up bag are inspiration for me now. Designs are flowing out onto the pages of my very own notebooks. With my shop just getting off the ground, I am still working to stock my shop with creations, but they are coming...
