Welcome to my creative space
Krista McPhee

My name is Krista, and I am on a one-woman mission to inspire individuals to ignite their creative spark, show up with confidence, and make creativity happen. Even when they think it is impossible.

Petal & Finch is a brand that is personable and cultivates creativity, run by me, Krista. Flowers are my passion, and paper is my medium. I started Petal & Finch to share my love for paper paper flowers and to raise positivity and kindness through my work. My goal is to empower you to craft love and appreciation into your life.

I’m so glad you are here!

“Happiness held is the seed”

I believe…

Color is energy visualized.

Life is a bundle of a million tiny miracles.

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.

Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.


I believe flowers communicate feelings of love, joy, affection and appreciation. This is where my inspiration for my paper flower journey began.

Unfortunately, we were not all born with a green thumb (me being one of them) but we are all born with the gift to create art through imagination. Everlasting paper blooms are a beautiful and simple way to capture the essence of mother nature. In fact, I infuse my paper flowers with a passion for color, light and texture.

From paper to petals, discover a deeper level of creativity and bring unforgettable happiness to any occasion.

Whether you want to discover a new hobby, DIY your wedding, or build a new business. I can show you how. Learn essential paper flower techniques and build your creative voice.

the personal stuff

The magic is in the making…

This is the motto I live and breathe by. A roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and a curiosity for what’s possible. The belief that creativity grows and flourishes by digging in and doing the work.

It’s the difference between waiting for creativity to happen, and making creativity happen.

No matter what you think, you are creative; you are crafty. All you need are ideas, a helpful nudge, and a few tips to start…and that’s my specialty.

Born and raised in the mountains of British Columbia, I live with my husband I call Nijo and our shameless dog Rocco. I speak fluent sarcasm, have a knack for filling awkward moments with inappropriate jokes, and love a good episode of Dateline. I lives for deep conversations, witty humour, weekends at the lake, and balances my thirst for dirty Martinis with yoga.

“Happiness shared is the flower.”
