My name is Sammie & I created what started as paperlilycards and die cuts in 2007 as a hobby due to my boyfriend being in the army and away a lot.
I opened a small ebay shop which over the years grew and grew until in 2013 i was given the optortunity to leave my job as a retail manager and concentrate on my business which is when i set up my website too.
In May 2015 one of my friends asked me to make her 2 baby memory boxes for her 2 children, after having to research what they were i made them for her with no intention of making any more, however once she posted them on facebook i had numerous requests for more, so after sourcing more materials i launched them in summer 2015 and this has now become my primary business.
Through making these i had requests for other items such as frames etc.
In spring 2017 i changed my business to paperlily designs to represent more of what i now sell.
Today i have lots of ideas and creations in the pipeline and hope to continue expanding my range of handmade gifts.
