Welcome to Petit Paper Stories! I’m Laura Homsey, a hand-cut paper  artist almost always equipped with scissors, paints and glue. My goal is to bring your special moments and stories to life in paper form 🙂

Years ago while student teaching, a mentor introduced me to the children’s book author and illustrator, Eric Carle. I fell in love with his style and playful yet important themes.

Shortly after, I began experimenting with his style while making it my own. That’s how I came to do what I do – helping you memorialize your special moments and stories in paper.

Petit Paper Stories creates custom, one-of-a-kind pieces that commemorate those special once-in-a-lifetime moments in your life. Those moments that are like something out of a storybook! And they deserve to be illustrated and remembered with that same magic.

Here are just a few examples of the moments I’ve created with my customers:

  • Purchasing your forever home
  • Welcoming a new member to the family
  • Remembering loved ones

Customers have taken me on many adventures over the years, and I can’t wait to join you on yours! Please reach out via my contact page. Thank you!
