The story of PENELOPE DEE is a collaboration between two friends. In January 2016 the ideas flowed while at CHA in California. By May, the dream became a reality with the surreal moment when our first paper range rolled off the printing press. Glenda Viljoen, an icon in the Scrapbooking industry, designs the paper with co-ordinating product while Lyn van den Berg with TROCRAFT manufactures and distributes the product. The naming of the brand has it’s own story ... it all started when Glenda was born. Her mom wanted to name her Penelope Ethel, the latter after her late grandmother. Her ever practical dad, persuaded her mom that Glenda Lee would be more suitable. So, in honour of her mom, she used Penelope and exchanged the ‘L’ in Lee for ‘D’ for Dad...hence the name PENELOPE DEE.
