Paper Ivy has grown from a small collection of cards to include a variety of designs across several products. The Paper Ivy line now includes calendars, stationery sets, bookmarks, prints and there are many other projects in the works.

Paper Ivy started when I was on maternity leave with my daughter, Ivy. I needed another outlet outside my design day job and with a new little one in the family I thought any extra money would be a bonus, but I secretly wanted it to do really well so I could provide more for Ivy… even though it was an exercise in: “Let’s just see if anything happens”!

It’s been a slow process, but I’ve learned a lot since the early days, made friends, gained supporters in the creative community and I’m looking forward to the future of Paper Ivy.
