Timeless Treasures by Gina
Tell us about your business.Timeless Treasures by Gina began as a way to express my creativity to others. In my time away from the university, I began to create greeting cards in every free moment I had. I always loved to scrapbook and preserve precious memories, so card making seemed to come effortlessly. After exposing my product to the public, I realized the greeting card market is a great avenue to be a part of. Every person wants to share in a special card to share their feelings with their loved ones. Each greeting card is a blank canvas to work with. I use various paper crafting materials and embellishments when creating a card. I carefully craft each card with a unique touch including a coordinating envelope. It brings me great joy when I am finished to envision the person who will be receiving this very card. My goal is to share my creativity with others. I would like to take paper crafting to the next level and grow my business so that I can share my greeting cards with the world.
What makes your business stand out?My handcrafted greeting card business is simply unique because of my product. I love to see the smile on the face of a loved one when you give a special card. That feeling of warmth is like no other and I believe you are spreading love and happiness. I built my collection from this idea and love the joy that comes from being creative. Each of my greeting cards is an original made with Tender Loving Care.
What's the best business advice you've received?I think the best advice I ever received was my mother encouraging me to showcase my product to different markets. I realized that as a business owner, determination is a key factor. For me, the motivation came naturally and I love to share my product with others.
