We are an internet based arts and crafts shop specialising in die-cuts and mixed media. We want to encourage everyone to create and play on whatever sort of page they choose – be it a scrapbook layout, a mini book, an art journal or canvas, a planner, or any other kind of page! We want everyone to be able to put colour in their lives and make it lovely.
We are based in Hampshire on the South coast of England and we attend pop up shops in and around the area. I love being able to chat to other crafters in person and go starry eyed over all the pretty things.
“We” is actually myself, Lisa-Jane, and my two children who inspire me and interrupt me in equal measures. They love helping me choose products for the shop and they love getting inky as much as I do.
My 8 year old girl loves scrapbooking and art journaling and my 11 year old son loves drawing and designing new cut files. “Accounts” is my amazing husband. He’s also pretty good at making tea and carrying boxes of new supplies.
My studio is in the first floor of our tall Victorian house that we lovingly call “Pretty My Page Towers”! We are gradually renovating the entire house including having to redo all the plumbing and electrics and dealing with a lot of dodgy historical works… but it does give me another opportunity to spread paint and love around. As well as working in my studio, I am partial to tucking my lap top and sketch pad into my satchel and heading off to a well known coffee shop to do some designing. I’ve also been known to sketch ideas on napkins in restaurants or get an idea travelling along the motorway to Pembrokeshire in Wales where we look after an old cottage.
