Handmade one piece at a time, Stephanie’s work is filled with whimsy and romance. Not only are the messages and quotes she chooses sweet, thoughtful and inspiring, each one is paired with vintage paper. Pages torn from an old book or a section of an aged atlas often serve as the backgrounds for her papercut art, and the nature of the materials means that every piece is unique, and not an identical copy in a stack. Each of her messages is designed between her sketchbook and the computer and sent off to her die cut printer. The trimmed top layers are carefully assembled over a vintage page so that the original map or text peek out from the cut out areas.
