Paper Piecing Note Cards from LBC Paper

I really like the bright, geometric note cards that Leah Copplestone creates to stock her Etsy shop, LBC Paper [edit: now closed].

She uses paper strips and shapes in stylish ways, resulting in an uncluttered, eye-catching collection.

Leah also creates home decor, like the frameable, paper cut utensils below, as well as garlands, hanging flowers, pushpins, and magnets.

She made this very large fringed flower with beautifully marbled paper from Etsy artist, Ruth Bleakley.

Funky wall sculpture:

All of the cards in Leah's architecture series are original and one-of-a-kind; the designs are hand drawn with a fine-point pen. Can you imagine how hard these are to do so perfectly?!

Leah is currently recuperating from multiple surgeries after a very serious college sports-related injury.

She intends to finish architecture school as soon as she is able, but meanwhile, creating new designs and managing her Etsy shop, LBC Paper, occupies her hands and helps to take her mind off constant pain.

Wishing you all the best, Leah!
