How Cuttin' Up Began
The Cuttin' Up business began in 2006 at the prompting of a local scrapbook store owner who was looking for scrapbook die cuts for local schools, events, and travel. The business quickly expanded to me supplying custom die cuts for five area scrapbook stores. In 2008 I added vinyl decals that, at the time, were small enough to be placed on the covers of scrapbook albums. This eventually led to car decals and then quickly to wall decals. Since then I have added many more items such as wood signs, apparel, and most recently laser engraved items to the list of items that I now sell. All of the items in the shop are made to order by me in my basement work area. This means that in most cases the items may be customized to your needs whether it be color choices or re-sizing. Feel free to contact me to see if the item you are interested in may be changed to meet your specifications. Items ship within three to five business days unless it is a special request which requires more time as arranged prior to the purchase.
I love this business because it has allowed me to be a stay-at-home mom to our children and still help with some of the family expenses. This business challenges me every day to push myself to achieve new goals as well as gives me a creative outlet. I have greatly enjoyed some the of wonderful people I have met over the years that I never would have had the opportunity to meet had it not been for this business. I no longer make and sell the scrapbook die cuts which started it all and often think of changing the name of the business. The name has long been outgrown. Each time I consider the change I am reminded of how it all began and the roots of the business and how far they have extended. It's a nice reminder to me to stay humble and appreciate the blessings in my life.
