Hi! I’m Kirsty. Wife, mom, designer, and founder of Kreate Paper Co. I was born and raised in Cambridge, England and moved to the United States at the age of 21 after graduating from University with a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design and Advertising. I own a very successful Graphic / Website design company – Kreate Design Co., which consumes most of my waking hours. And those when I really should be sleeping. I have a passion for design and making things look pretty.
Kreate Paper Co. was founded during the big pandemic of 2020. As a small business owner, assisting other small business owners, my workload took a hit. I went from working 60 – 70 hours a week to about 15. And while I was still unbelievably grateful for those 15, I definitely felt the affects emotionally and financially.
“Look for the rainbow in every storm”
In an effort to keep my creative juices flowing, re-occupy my time (I have a tough time sitting still), and provide a way to lift everyone’s spirits, Kreate Paper Co. was born. Communication was tough; families were separated during the most special occasions (birthdays, holidays, funerals), so I wanted to find a way to bridge that gap and keep relationships strong and spirits high. My cards are designed to bring a smile to peoples faces, bring back some ‘sunshine’ into peoples lives, and remind each other that we’re still there.
When i’m not building websites, designing brochures or printing cards, i’m spending time with my husband and our 3 adorable kids – Tiffany, Tyler and Tiana.
Even though my workload has resumed (in flourishes!), i’ve had such great reviews and heartwarming messages from people who have loved my cards, so I’ve decided to keep it going. I love that I can help lift peoples spirits and provide a little happiness back into the world.
