I'm Amy, a twenty-something designer with a passion for films, country music and an avid tea drinker.
I create from my home studio in Lancashire, UK, with my pupper Halle for company. She can often be found sleeping whilst I work, which seems slightly unfair, but she keeps my feet warm so I'll let her off!
One48 Paper started in the summer of 2018 after I created the stationery for my own wedding. It didn’t properly get going until I launched my Etsy shop at the end of Sept 2018 with a range of bridal cards. I took my first sale early Oct and within the first 4 months I’d celebrated over 500 sales.
Skip ahead another 6 months and my shop has grown to include wedding stationery from invites to table plans to prints, gifts and more!
As well as the paper goods side of my business I knew that I wanted to help brides manage the stress and overwhelm that comes with planning a wedding, which is something close to my heart as I’m a newlywed myself.
So when I created One48 Paper I began sharing my own personal wedding and mental health journey, and it was there that The Anxious Bride series was born. This started as a blog series and has now grown into a video series too.
Due to my own mental health journey I can definitely appreciate how daunting taking on the task of planning a wedding can be as well. When I was newly engaged I struggled to find anything online to help me feel less overwhelmed and provide some guidance, so I really hope I can now be that for other brides to be.
I’m hoping for big things from The Anxious Bride part of my business in 2020, as I’d love for it to grow into a hub for brides / brides to be / wedding suppliers to share their knowledge, experiences and advice.
I hope you’ll be there to share the One48 journey.
