About Us

My passion for paper crafting started long ago when I wanted to preserve family memories through scrapbooking. Fast forward to 2008 when my best friend and college roommate, Lindy sent me the most beautiful card. As I studied every detail, I knew that she put so much time and effort into making my card. I knew that the card was custom-made just for me. My favorite colors, textures, patterns, and even the sentiment was taken into account. I became emotional knowing that it was an act of love. The inspiration to do the same for others was born in that tender moment. I wanted to create cards in such beautiful art form that the recipient would feel the same way I did when I first opened that incredible hand-made card.

During the following 8 years, a dream started to grow. I wanted to bring people together around the table to craft in a community that shared the same passion for card making. I started on that journey through creating a home studio after a couple of years in direct sales. That continued until August of 2020 when I was no longer involved in direct sales. The following month, September 1, 2020, Purple Pinky Promises, LLC was born. In September of 2022, what was once a small retail corner and class space in our basement, grew into a brick and mortar shop with a larger space for classes and crops. We are located in a vintage little shop on a darling little street in downtown Platte City. We are so blessed to be here! There’s more of this dream to unfold. It’s so fun to watch the curtain open at each stage on this adventure.

My husband and I work side by side in this little corner of the woods. He is jack of all trades. Die cutter, paper cutter, order selector, product packer, and so much more! He is an incredible encouragement to me. I’m definitely blessed. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! Your support for our little business is much appreciated!
