Emily Ley started designing in 2008 with a big dream, a stack of fancy paper and a penchant for monograms. Just a few years later, Emily Ley Paper is now a sought after brand of stationery and gift products featuring Emily's cornerstone creation, The Simplified Planner. Emily's work has been featured in Southern Weddings Magazine and Blog, Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers, Stationery Trends Magazine, as well as on the blogs Style Me Pretty, Oh So Beautiful Paper among others. Emily is passionate about her work as a coach to budding stationers, big dreamer with Making Things Happen and brand designer with Making Brands Happen.
Emily holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in English, Marketing and Administration. As a mom, wife and entrepreneur, Emily calls "building" her passion - building a strong business, building beautiful, authentic brands, building a family full of tradition and helping others build their big dreams as well. Born and raised in the South, Emily now resides in South Florida with her husband, Bryan and son, Brady. She is easily amused, terribly driven and constantly thankful. Her love for coffee, all things Southern and clean design is only trumped by her fascination with sweet Brady Ley.
