Shout Out Thursday: Lou Studio

As part of my blog, Thursdays are for a SURPRISE "Shout Out" to another ETSY store for product information and a review, by me. These stores are ones that I have personally done business with and have been impressed with both their product and service. Today, lets chat about:

Handmade Mini Card Assortment

Lou Studio, an ETSY hosted store specializing in handmade cards, paper crafts, supplies and gift items.  The owner is based out of Rockford, Illinois and has a beautiful array of paper goods to meet your gift and scrapbooking needs.  There are also great stamp sets for purchase for those inclined to do a little crafting of their own.

The shop features many beautiful handmade cards to choose from; these are not your average Hallmarks and are sure to impress!  I recently purchased a mini card set similar to the one picture here at the right.  The order was quickly shipped and the quality and attention to detail wonderful.  There are many one-of-a-kind cards, notebooks, and other fun surprises. 

In sharing a little about how the passion for creating started, Lou Studio writes "Way back when.....I saw a demonstration of rubber stamping and thermal embossing and I still remember the image. It was a beautiful and very detailed fan and embossed with gold powder.  So began my love of stamping and with that I began to enjoy creating other things like altered books,trinket boxes, cigar box purses,and lots of paper items. I enjoy many different stlyes so you will find my shop has a varied selection."

  1. Lou had become a very good friend of mine on Etsy and I am just thrilled that you picked her shop to feature. I have purchased many cards and ACEOs, and even custom ordered some and have ALWAYS been so pleased with the professional look of her work. She has been a big inspiration for me to start some hand-stamped projects of my own.
    I just can't say enough good things about this lady!

Kat and Kippy put it so eloquently - Lou does beautiful work and I've been more than pleased with EVERYTHING I've ordered from her (which includes cards, decorated boxes, mini composition books, ACEOs, bookmarks, mini cards - and embellishments for my own work, which she inspires with her own creativity!
