I wasn’t sure exactly when ‘it’ would happen, so I’ve been keeping this a secret for a while now, but I can finally share the news… With the help of Jeff, Paper & Stitch has a brand new look. Yay!
The new design is cleaner & more modern, so the content can take center stage.
A few things of note:
1. New & Improved about page – Cool graphic designed by my good friend Jordan of Create Like Crazy / I have matching business cards to match, which I’ll be showing off soon.
2. Link to my portfolio site in the sidebar – I have been taking on a lot more DIY & Styling work lately, so I thought I better have a little place to house all these projects.
3. Streamlined drop downs & categories – So you can find things quickly and easily.
And you might also notice a slight change in the name, from ‘papernstitch’ (one word) to Paper & Stitch with an ampersand. It’s a little more grown up, but the main reason for this change was to eliminate any confusion that would occasionally come up with the spelling and it being all one word.
This is a work in progress and there will definitely be more (small) changes over the next couple of months. So, I’d love to hear from you and find out how you like the new look and what you’d love to see in the future too.
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me. Your support means the world to me and I don’t think I’ve expressed that enough recently.

Ohhh! Love love love this new look! Has a wonderful boutique’s mag sort of feel, now.
I’m all for the ampersand. Doesn’t that mean you have the perfect excuse to buy ampersand decor now? 😉
The new about page is fantastic, too. Warm and to the point, fits the blog perfectly!
Congrats on the brilliant new look!Anna Simmonds
