Digital design was an early love, but using that love to create unique children's party printables makes me never want to grow up!
Hello! Welcome to Shelley's Paper Studio! I am Shelley, wife to an incredible husband and mom to four awesome little ones! They are my life and my joy, but I have a creative itch that I can't ignore!! I grew up in a home full of creativity and crafts, my mom is a wonderful artist, but I was never the best at hand drawings. In high school, I doodled text and fonts, I loved geometric shapes and lines and creating images that made me or someone smile. I took a multi-media class in my sophmore year of highschool and we learned the beginnings of photoshop. It was love at first mouse click. I took a similar course for the next two years using the program for many projects and just fun from making photo gifts for my mom to designing CD covers for my friend's band.
I continued to use my love for photoshop for many personal projects, college assignments and eventually for my own wedding. When my first daughter was about to turn one it was a big deal since she was born with Kleefstra Syndrome. Amongst many health/mental issues she had a congenital heart defect and her first year of life was extrememly difficult and life-threatening. We wanted to have a huge birthday party to celebrate all that she had been through and look forward to her "less medical" future. She had a lady-bug themed party and it was a big event. I created her invitations in photoshop and quickly discovered how much I LOVED putting on a child's party!
It wasn't until I was in the process of planning my son's first birthday and my daughters third (they share a birthday, one day apart) that I came across ETSY in 2011. I had chosen a monster themed party for them and looked online forever and could not find any designs that I loved for an invitation. I decided I could make my own and then thought "why couldn't I open a shop and sell this invitation as well?" It was a an idea that I imagined would be a fun little hobby, but did not have any high expectations. I designed a few invitations with different themes to get my shop open, but it was the monster theme that helped Shelley's Paper Studio take off into more than I could have dreamed!
Today the shop is busy and unique and full of what I like to describe as fun printables that are attractive enough for the parents but still have a child's eye of whimsy that makes them smile. I am lucky enough to have two amazing associates that help me keep my head on straight with orders and emails! Shelley's Paper Studio would not be able to grow if it weren't for their hard work. So thanks for visting and if you are planning a party, let me know! I might have an invite for that!
