In 2012, Chelsea discovered an image transfer process that made use of her love of photography. She discovered that hand-transferring photos onto wood transformed the photos that she already loved into something more complex and textured. Chelsea’s original photos focus on California coastal and nature scenes and SF landmarks. She cuts the wood and makes all the transfers by hand. Recently Chelsea switched her focus to making cloth masks. Having sewn from a young age, her skills have been put to good use. For each mask purchased, one is donated.

Paper & Scissor
Paper & Scissor designs and handcrafts greeting cards for all occasions. They love helping you stay connected to the special people in your life.
Tiffany Su, the designer & maker, started making cards the moment she could pick up a pencil, scissors, and glue. She made cards throughout her entire childhood until one day... she just sort of stopped. Life got busy. Fast forward to 2017, she started creating cards again with found/repurposed art materials, cool paper scraps, basically anything she could find. In rediscovering her love for making cards, the idea for Paper & Scissor emerged. Eventually, she discovered the magic of digital design and hasn't looked back since. She hopes you enjoy the cards as much as she enjoys making them! Shop her collections here.
