Hochanda’s August Guest Showcase

Welcome back to the Hochanda’s Guest Showcase! This month they featured Phil Martin, with Sentimentally Yours.

Where did it all start?

‘Before Sentimentally Yours was born, I opened my first Honeypot Crafts store in 2007 after much deliberation. Leaving a secure job to venture out into business on my own was a huge challenge, but one I relished as I was going to be doing what I loved every day. I just knew that this is where I felt at home, in the craft world. That same year, I was approached by a company who asked if I’d be interested in representing their brand on shopping TV… you can see what that led to!

The more I searched for co-ordinating products to stock in my shop and to use for myself (stamps, papers and so on), the more I struggled to source quality sentiment stamp ranges, particularly anything unique. This is where the idea was formed… I should design my own. I designed my first collection of sentiment stamps back in 2013 and I wanted the brand to be different from my shop. These were personal to me; they had feeling, and this is how Sentimentally Yours was born. It’s a perfect description of how important the right words and phrases on our projects are and how important my designs and coordinating products are to me, on a personal level, in their longevity and the creative opportunities they provide us.’
