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!!!! šŸ˜€ Needless to say I was ok and managed not to tax myself too much!Ā šŸ˜‰

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!

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 šŸ™‚ ) 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 muchĀ been about Custom Orders and it’s been a lot of fun, with some fantasticĀ feedback too! Anniversaries and birthdays, to name a couple,Ā with some very specific requests, so no two cards made will ever be the same, that’s the fun part. šŸ™‚Blog Custom

Whether you have a very specific ideaĀ 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 ultimatelyĀ having happy customers that return againĀ for something else is the best feeling as a crafter!

Have a great weekend!

Custom Orders and New Things!

So this week I’ve been busy designing some custom order wedding celebration cardsĀ and new stock itemsĀ for the store! There are still two custom orders yet to do and I have brainstormed ideas and banked them ready. So just final design details to do, before the cards are made ready to go!

Creativity for me is all about thinking outside the box and coming up with something unique that belongs to both the recipient and the customer.20170427_144101

That makes it special to not only both of these peopleĀ but also to me in creating a unique sentiment. I think that’s why I have so much fun making them. You can create almost anything using a brief and a little imagination!

 

 

 

In store there are some new cards, personalised as always and also available in the new larger size of 8 x 6in (regular are 6 x 6in). So you have options now to select the size card you would like!

Despite how much fun custom orders are, brain exhaustion now seems to have set in and I’m happy for the weekend break, ready to start afresh for what’s in store for a new week!! Ā šŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
