about me

Hello and welcome to my online store shopaperatz offering an extensive range of craft products for card-makers.  Please stay while I inspire your creativity!

My name is Sue Lavering, I live in Brisbane, Australia and am a passionate papercrafter and cardmaker of 25+ years.  I made my first handmade card with rubber stamp and ink in the early 1990s when I became hooked!  I loved making cards from that very first moment and sold many of them at local shops and markets. From there I had a small joint venture business for several years selling unmounted stamps, ink, papers & embellishments.

In early 2000 I was introduced to Creative Memories and was a consultant for about seven years during which time I enjoyed teaching others to create traditional photo albums.

In 2008 I opened my first Ebay store selling Pandora style silver beads and loved every minute of this venture, not to mention the several new bracelets I acquired for myself! Two years later I switched back to selling craft products and eventually shopaperartz evolved.

I came across this international (US maybe) website recently and was surprised to find a review of my Ebay feedback and performance.  Here is the link for anyone interested in reading it. (https://www.marketplacepulse.com/ebay/australia/beedz2bobz

I absolutely love what I do and invite you into my store to share my passion!  Thanks for taking the time to visit.
