About

Welcome to Pieces of Me Paper Crafts on Etsy

In June 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I'm currently undergoing treatment. My shop is closed until I'm well enough to provide the quality service that buyers expect when shopping on Etsy. I hope to reopen in 2018.

In my shop the definition of handmade is "made from my two hands."
Handmade is never perfect but it's definitely unique.
You won't find the items in my shop at any big box store.

I've been playing with paper since 1998 when I started a baby scrapbook for my infant daughter. Over the years my hobby evolved to include card making and handmade embellishments. I began selling my handmade embellishments on eBay in 2001, then took a break for a few years. In 2009, I opened an Etsy shop to sell my daughter's handmade jewelry. The shop didn't stay open for long but I gained valuable knowledge about selling on Etsy. In 2012 I felt a calling to sell my handmade cards and this shop was born.

In 2017 my card shop entered its 5th year on Etsy and I started offering simpler cards that I design on my computer and finish up by hand. I'm having a blast making fun cards that will make you laugh and smile! My newest card designs make use of both digital and rubber stamps, watercolors, quality clip art and fun messages. The items in my shop are all individually handmade by me using quality papers and adhesives.

I live in Massachusetts with my husband, two college-age children and two cats. When I'm not playing with paper, scissors and adhesives, I work full-time outside the home as a graphic designer at a newspaper. I've been working in the printing industry for 40 years and my graphic design skills are used in my Etsy shop on a regular basis.

Pieces of Me Paper Crafts is a smoke free, pet friendly shop!


Additional info:
I previously managed two other shops for my daughter that are now closed (ThisNThatCraftHouse and EmsSparklinGems).

Refunds, if requested, will be issued for purchase price only after the returned package is received by me. Shipping charges are not refundable if an incorrect address is provided.

****VAT, TAXES, DUTIES & CUSTOMS FEES****
The customs form I'm required to attach to your package will show the actual price you paid and be marked as “merchandise."

The buyer is responsible for paying all customs fees / import taxes imposed by their country of residence.
Additional policies and FAQs
Pieces of Me Paper Crafts is a smoke free shop!

My items are handmade by me. Some items are made in multiple quantities so I can list more than one for sale. The item you receive may not be the exact item shown in the photo but it will be made as close as possible.

CUSTOM ORDERS POLICY
I accept special orders on occasion. If you need a different color or additional quantity of an existing item or have a design idea, feel free to contact me. I check messages daily and will respond within 24 hours. After a buyer and I have agreed on the specifics of the order I'll create a custom listing for purchase. Special orders must be purchased and paid in full before I start to work on them. Processing times will be determined based on the size of the order and availability of materials and will be agreed upon by both buyer & seller before the custom listing is created. There are no returns/refunds on custom orders if the item can't be resold in my shop.

Frequently asked questions

Can you personalize my tags with a name or phrase?

My tags are handmade by me but I'm not set up to print on them. I'd be happy to hand stamp "thank you" on your tags but I can't add names, dates or other personal information.

Can I order your cards or tags in larger quantities?

Yes! Please contact me privately to discuss a larger order of any design in my shop. Larger orders will require a longer processing time. See the next question for processing and shipping info.

How soon will I get my order?

Ready to ship items are mailed in 1-3 business days.

Items that are labeled as "made to order" are shipped 4-7 business days from the order date. This gives me time to make your order and package it for shipping.

Special orders created through private message requests will be shipped in the time frame agreed upon at the time of the order.

Delivery time depends on your location and the method of shipping you choose at checkout. Most packages shipped within the U.S. arrive in 3-5 business days. Please see my shop policies regarding postal delays and lost packages.

Will you mail a card directly to my recipient?

Sure! I've gotten this request a few times and I'm happy to oblige. Leave me a message in the "note to seller" of your order or send me a private message prior to your purchase. Be sure to include your recipient's correct address. If you request a personal message to be included inside your card it'll be hand written by me or printed on my computer depending on what card is purchased. Messages will be written and signed exactly as provided by the buyer. Mature or offensive message requests will not be honored. Thank you for understanding.

Is your shop pet free and smoke free?

My family members and I are non-smokers and share our home with two cats. My ready to ship items are stored in covered plastic bins.
