About

The Paper Stash's Story

I have a long history of spending most of my childhood in art class (any medium), and I attended a private art school up until the age of 19 when I left home to pursue an education in Visual Arts and Photography.

I purchased my first (of many) cutting machine several years ago as a hobby to keep myself busy while on maternity leave with my first born. I found myself astonished that I was actually able to create my own paper products from scratch, which is when I honed in on my graphic design skills and began filling custom orders for friends and family.

My sister-in-law found out what I was up to and asked me "have you heard of Etsy?" (I had not!). After a bit of reading and research, I decided to go for it and I opened my shop in 2011 with only the stash of paper I had stored away in my closet. The Paper Stash, an Etsy shop, was born!

Fast-forward 2 years down the road: My husband and I decided we were going to throw a wedding celebration on our 10th anniversary and gave ourselves 2 years to plan everything. We knew going into things we wanted to A) Save money and B) DIY to add that personal touch for our friends and relatives who were travelling far to celebrate. I handmade all of our wedding invitation sets, card box, seating chart, table numbers, favour tags and more event products for our special day.

By combining my personal skills with the arts and my love for graphic design, I was able to create most of my own wedding paper needs. Yes, this was all while running the shop and filling custom orders...oh, and raising 2 young kids at home. Yep, I love a challenge!

These days I can be found designing and manufacturing the new products in my shop, and shipping my new paper products to countries around the world. I love working with customers who shop through Etsy because they are creative individuals who are great at seeking out the amazing independent shops, which are the hidden gems of the world's handmade marketplace.

    I've had a love for paper since I was a child. After DIY designing and creating products for my own wedding, I became inspired to open my shop and create paper products for all kinds of special events around the world.
