Hi! Welcome to Jojo + Bella!
We believe that great design and art can make people happy. We believe that quality products and great customer support are the only options. And we believe that, whether for a child or an adult, every Jojo + Bella design should come with a smile 🙂
Jo Lawes is an illustrator, designer and Cricut Aficionado behind the site Jojo + Bella, dedicated to making every DIY project a party and your craft life a little bit more awesome. When Jo isn’t crafting her heart away or sketching new designs, she can be found running around her daughter Bella, concocting new fairy cake recipes or playing dress up and home discos.

How long have you been designing?
I started selling on Etsy in 2019 after a lifetime of designing. I have a background in costume design and a degree in illustration. Before Bella came along I had my heart set on teaching but found it hard to find work that would fit around childcare. I was always crafting gifts and party decorations for friends. When I discovered the Cricut it felt like a match made in heaven and I haven’t stop crafting ever since. I started selling my own designs and have never looked back.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I draw all my products on my Ipad Pro using the Procreate drawing app and an Apple pen. I then tidy up and convert in Adobe Illustrator.
What is your favourite kind of projects?
At the moment I’m really love drawing mandalas and working them into different shapes like flowers and animals. I just completely lose myself when drawing them and adore how they look cut out with layered card.
