I'm Chrissy and I'm the Girlboss behind the printers and cutting machines. I run Pretty on Paper Co with the help of my husband, Gary!
Like most small businesses, Pretty on Paper Co was inspired by my love of planning. I stumbled across the planning world on Youtube and was hooked ever since. My passion for graphic design and crafts led me to delve deeper and decide to take the plunge and open my own shop. The rest, as they say, is history.
Pretty on Paper Co first opened it's doors (so to speak... does Etsy have doors?) on September 1, 2015 in snowy Calgary, Canada with a few sheets of simple stickers. Over the past year our style has evolved and we now incorporate original artwork into our kits at least once per month!
In June 2017, we moved Stateside! We now call sunny Gilbert, Arizona home and have settled into the amazing planner community down south!
Over the past 2 years POPco has not only grown into a full-time business for me, but it has also introduced me to some of my best friends. The planning community is an amazingly supportive group that I'm so blessed to have stumbled upon.
A little bit about me:
I love pizza. If you don't like pizza I will definitely side eye you... but I'll still love you because it means more for me!
I was born in New Jersey, moved to Ireland when I was 12, Canada when I was 24 and Arizona when I was 26. Yep, I've been around!
I'm a workaholic who appreciates the art of self care. It's the best care, right? So, even though most days I'll be chained to my desk - I'll always be out getting a massage, treating myself to breakfast at my favorite coffee shop or laying by the pool at least once a week!
I'm an only child but most people find that really surprising - I guess that means I won and didn't fall victim to only child syndrome?!
We have 3 pets - Baymax and Ori are our Ragdoll Cats and Cooper is our Golden Retriever! I guess you can say I'm an animal lover!
When I'm not playing with stickers - you'll probably find me on Instagram (I'm way too obsessed). Above anything else I try to be an example of loving yourself, your work and your journey now and not wait until you've hit x, y or z to feel awesome. If even one person can tell me that I helped them feel more confident and less alone - my job is done.
