RB: What is Paper Parade Co.?
PPC: Paper Parade Co. is a stationery design shop providing invitations and paper goods for events. We also sell fun packaging and vintage supplies for gift wrapping.
PPC: Initially, I began Paper Parade Co. as a way to share my collection of vintage paper ephemera. I had always loved to make handmade cards for friends and family and started experimenting with designing paper goods that reflected my love for vintage but with a clean modern aesthetic. I am still a collector of all kinds of vintage ephemera and that continually inspires new designs.
PPC: I’m so excited to participate in ReBash and think it's a great idea! I will be selling some of my paper products and gift wrap supplies along with some vintage tabletop items. I also write a blog and do some freelance prop styling work so I have accumulated some vintage items that I would also like to sell.
PPC: Lately, I've been experimenting with a variety of things including watercolours, calligraphy and some mixed media art using some vintage paper. I'm just playing and trying new things. You never know what inspiration will come out of it.
RB: What is your all-time can't-live-without favourite crafting tool/supply?
PPC: All-time? That's a tough one. I suppose it's paper. Especially old books and maps, japanese paper and washi tape. That's what my studio is overflowing with..
