Hi everyone. My name is Corrine and I have been designing since 1995 when I started up an award winning graphic design company in Co. Louth which specialized in menu design. It was during this time that I discovered a passion for handmade papers, stationery, cards and crafts and began designing wedding invitations. In 2005 I sold my business and moved to the US where I continued to work with happy couples to create one-of-a-kind designs. While in the US I began embellishing my designs with various techniques to achieve a uniqueness that is displayed in my work. Happily, I have returned to Ireland with my family and have realised my dream of having my own studio and sharing my passion for design with happy couples.

 

My studio and showroom is in the Erne Hill Shopping Centre (this is the same shopping centre with Centra) in Belturbet, Co. Cavan. (If you are coming from the Dublin side of the N3 you can take the Old Belturbet Rd. to get here), from the North take the Belturbet roundabout and continue through the town. The studio is open Tuesday through Friday 9.30-5:30. If you wish to visit outside of these hours please feel free to make an appointment. We often meet up with couples after work or on the weekend in our studio. Give us a shout +353 (0)86 067 7737 or email us: info@thepapershop.ie. We are pleased to announce that we recently opened an office in Birmingham under the name DIY Wedding Invites to bring our new Self Assembly Kits to our friends in the UK. See our website for details. So exciting!

A bit more about me.

I love living in Ireland. When I say “home” it is Ireland I think of and not California where I’m from. Some people say I’m nuts, but there is no place in the world like Ireland and my happiest years have been here.

 

Here are some pics of me and my happy family!

To the right is a pic of me and the unicorn, it is actually my husband but he was nicknamed “the unicorn” by my friends because according to them, he is a mystical creature that doesn’t exist. That is how awesome of a husband he is! I know a good thing when I see it and I had him at the alter 3 months after we met. We recently celebrated our 26th anniversary. My heart still beats a little faster when he walks in the room.

Here is our daughter, Ciara, with her horse, Chloe. Ciara is absolutely stunning (takes after her mum of course). She is an avid horse lover and has been from the first time we put her on a horse (it was a rocking horse and she was 2!). She started lessons when she was 8 and found her passion in life. She recently completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Equine Management in Northern Ireland and has moved to sunny California! We are super proud of her.

Here is a Jasper, our cat. He is part demon and part love cat. He is very well travelled. We got him from an animal rescue in County Louth in 2009 while we were spending a few weeks in Ireland visiting family and we took him back to the US with us (much to my husband’s chagrin who wanted to know “is this because there are no black cats in the US?”- lol). My husband refuses to call him Jasper. He says he needs an Irish name since he is an Irish cat so he calls him Seamus – lol. Jasper spent 6 years with us in the US until he travelled back to Ireland with us in 2015. Born in Ireland, lived in the US, back to Ireland – how many cats can say that?!

Last, but certainly not least, here is Twinkie. She is my very best friend and she comes to the studio with me everyday. She is a truly special dog and I love her to bits. She loves going kayaking with me as you can see! Luckily we have a lake in our back garden so we can play in the water whenever the weather suits. This pic was taken on a float trip in Missouri – a fun pastime in the summers in that part of the US. We will keep the tradition going in our own lake in Belturbet!

As you can plainly see I am an animal lover. An Siopa Páipéar are proud supporters of The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
