Wed 04 Jan 2017
After facing redundancies Stacey Dennis wasted no time in starting her business from scratch, Designing and making greeting cards.
Working from the kitchen table, with a combined approach of hard work and a wicked sense of humour. Stacey has seen Love Layla Designs attract an international customer base and interest from some of the UK’s largest card retailers.
This birthday and anniversary cards business is now set to turnover £1m this year and has more than 500 designs in its portfolio. Today Love Layla Designs employs seven people and has recently opened its first franchise in Australia.
Ms Dennis said,
“We launched in February 2015, when we had £30 left in the bank account. I was determined to build a business that could secure her future. As a designer, I knew I had the tools to start a card business, but I didn’t anticipate how far we would go and in just two years.”
