Hello! I’m Shell, a twenty-something year old stationery addict currently living in Manchester with my lovely husband Rich and our mad golden retriever Toby. I have a passion for all things arts & craft and relish any opportunity to get creative. Growing up I loved browsing the shelves at my local art store and stocking up on essential supplies; after school you could always find me in my room working on various projects. Art attack was my favourite programme and I watched it religiously! Now, I love nothing better than a leisurely scroll through Pinterest and Instagram for project ideas and inspiration. Scrapbooks are a must for storing all my designs and I could happily spend hours in Paperchase choosing the perfect one.
The idea for Shell’s Bells was born in 2016 when my (now!) husband Rich proposed to me and I embarked upon the perilous journey that is wedding planning. From day one I knew that I wanted to make all my own stationery and decorations, and began pouring over Pinterest boards for inspiration. It was a huge undertaking and took up all my spare time but I enjoyed the process enormously. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to set up my own business specialising in wedding stationery – and so Shell’s Bells was born!
The collections I have designed are all hand crafted and are strongly influenced by my love of all things greenery. You can check them all out >> here!
