Bellaboo is an on-line family-run business specialising in Scrapbooking products. Although my background is in administration I have loved beautiful patterned paper since working for a well known wallpaper and fabric design company many years ago.
I started cardmaking in 2005 and then discovered scrapbooking a year later and was blown away by it. I have always kept photo albums but creating scrapbook pages and filling albums is so much more rewarding - memories are remembered and kept, stories are told and it gives me a much needed creative outlet.
I have a real sense of freedom in the creative process because there is no right or wrong way to make a scrapbook page, if am happy with it, then it is perfect!
I was delighted to have the opportunity to purchase Bellaboo in May 2010 because I wanted to take my passion for scrapbooking to the next level, and I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to create a shop that stocked up-to-the-minute contemporary brands as soon as they are available (not least because I wanted them for my own use!).
Cardmaking and Scrapbooking go really well together as hobbies because they involve very similar products. Cardmaking with scrapbook papers offers so much more paper choice (and a useful way to use up any leftover papers from a scrapbook page), and the possibilities of design are endless! So although we are a specialist Scrapbooking store, there is plenty in store to keep cardmakers happy too!
When I was new to scrapbooking I subscribed to a kit which was so exciting to open each month - someone else had done the work matching the products and finding the right embellishments to go with the papers - WOW! And what I liked even more is that I would get papers and other items that I may never have chosen myself which really challenged me and it was fabulous. So when I bought Bellaboo I was determined to provide this service, so I now put together monthly kits co-ordinated around a particular theme to save you time shopping and give you more time to scrap! I have been really pleased with the results and have had some lovely feedback from my customers who seem to appreciate them too!
I also aim to give you a really good service by letting you know when new products have come out as soon as I can, and to provide value for money and an excellent delivery service.
I always appreciate any feedback that would help to improve your shopping experience with Bellaboo so any comments are gladly welcome - email@example.com.
