Trying Something New!

As a crafter, I’m always looking at other paper crafts and ideas and have recently tried out quilling. It’s an age old craft using rolled paper strips to form decorative shapes and has been used as far back in history by monks during the Renaissance and more recently ladies in 18th century Europe, because it was considered as a none too taxing pastime for them!!!! 😀 Needless to say I was ok and managed not to tax myself too much! 😉

I have been trying out ideas to include on greeting cards, which are quite popular and have already added some designs to the store! An any age birthday card, new baby and wedding card.

I hope you like these and of course can always request a Custom Order for something unique. More will be added to the store in the coming weeks, so keep any eye out for those!

Have a great week!

Harry Potter Fans!

This week, although very busy, I have managed to find time to add a couple of new Harry Potter themed cards to the store!

There is now a ‘Deathly Hallows’ style card featuring the iconic symbol, that you can send for birthdays, or any other occasion you have in mind, together with a Hogwarts Express Engine card. Both have the Custom Request option, if you want to use this for  something other than a birthday. I have also revamped the Platform 9 3/4 card a little, which is already a very popular one! There is a themed card for those currently taking and hopefully passing their exams this summer. So I hope HP fans will enjoy receiving  any of these!

Don’t forget the general ‘Thank You‘ cards for teachers also available in store with the 20170605_115235Summer term drawing to a close. I’m sure teachers would love to receive these cards, just as much as the kids sending them, and there are three designs to choose from. If you have a special theme in mind, why not use the Custom Order item to have something unique created!

 

Look out soon for some new cards in the Mickey and Minnie Mouse theme range, as there will be some great new additions!

Wishing all the Dad’s out there a great Father’s Day on Sunday, so have a great weekend!

Uniquely You!

There is nothing I love more than receiving a message that says ‘can you make something special for me’!

So I start with a blank page….(and card 🙂 ) colour, design, inspiration, the world’s your oyster and I can create anything with a brief, to allow you to send that specially unique sentiment to someone.

This week has very much been about Custom Orders and it’s been a lot of fun, with some fantastic feedback too! Anniversaries and birthdays, to name a couple, with some very specific requests, so no two cards made will ever be the same, that’s the fun part. 🙂Blog Custom

Whether you have a very specific idea or just a vague notion of what you need, just ask! Drafting ideas to send out and finally looking at the finished item is always rewarding and ultimately having happy customers that return again for something else is the best feeling as a crafter!

Have a great weekend!

Super-size it, coming soon!

The importance of providing options for your customers, I think, is very important and recently I have been asked about larger card sizes. I have said before that taking on board feedback and having the flexibility to adapt and provide (as much as I can) the product that customers would like to see and buy, is key. So I have been looking into this in order to make these available in the store. There will soon be options for most of the current cards, to select a larger size, along with new ones moving forwards!

This week, I have added some new items to the store….. some for the men in your lives and some for the ladies! These have colour options and as always, personalised greetings, all available to select on ordering. I hope you like them 🙂

 

For those of you who have Mother’s Day still to come, there is a range of cards still available to buy. So please check those out!mday-collage

Father’s Day cards will be available online soon, so keep an eye out for those too.

 

 

 

Have a great weekend!

Sporting Time of the Year.

Spring and summertime are always great times to enjoy the outdoors and sports. I was recently asked to make a Custom Order sporting card for a birthday and this inspired me to add a small selection to the store. I’ve started with just a few popular ones to choose from. There is football, golf and rugby, but as always, if there is a sport you would like, you can always hit that “Custom Request” button in the item and I will do my best to accommodate you! Any popular requests will be added to the store. Click HERE to order online.

So with warmer weather and a long weekend coming up, I hope you get to enjoy the outdoors and have some Easter fun!

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy Friday!

So with another week nearly over and looking to get the final orders for this week out in the post, I came to realise that Father’s Day is not too far off. So over the next few weeks, I will be looking at some designs for cards to celebrate the occasion.

In the meantime, there are a couple of new cards in store for you this week! Inspired by some fantastic feedback regarding the floral bouquet card, which was proving very popular with customers for Mother’s Day, 20170329_121514 (1)I decided to add a similar one for birthdays. This version has a heart embossed background with a 3D bouquet, tied with a ribbon bow and coordinated banner. This can be personalised with your greeting. (There are a few bow/banner colour choices to select from.) I love the look of this card, so crisp and bright, I hope you do too!

 

 

 

I have also recently had a few custom requests for another Star Wars card with Darth Vader on, so again I decided to add something to the stock available in store! There are two ‘Dark Side’ designs to choose from, the classic helmet and a silhouette style card:

As always both can be personalised with a greeting of your choice. 🙂

So have a great weekend and see you all next week!

Sharon 🙂
