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!!!! ­čśÇ Needless to say I was ok and managed not to tax myself too much!┬á­čśë

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 ­čÖé ) 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┬ábeen about Custom Orders and it’s been a lot of fun, with some fantastic┬áfeedback too! Anniversaries and birthdays, to name a couple,┬áwith some very specific requests, so no two cards made will ever be the same, that’s the fun part. ­čÖéBlog 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┬áto the store….. some for the men in your lives and some for┬áthe ladies! These have colour options and as always, personalised greetings, all available to select on ordering. I hope you like them ­čÖé

 

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.

Little Princesses!

Everyone loves a Disney Princess! Do you have a little princess in your life? There are lots of little girls out there (and some bigger ones! ­čÖé ) who have┬áa favourite one. So I have designed and added some new cards┬áto the store this week with some of the most popular Disney Princesses! The cards have a costume design and a personalised banner greeting, all completed with a little sparkle. There are eight to choose from; Belle, Cinderella, Tiana, Rapunzel, Snow White, Aurora, Ariel and Elsa!

If there is one that has not been added that you like, you can of course request a “Custom Order” at no extra charge! You can check them out by clicking here.

Also, don’t forget your Easter cards too, which are in store. Three designs to choose from so I hope you will find something there that you like.Easter Cards (1)

Cards for the Men in Your Life.

Sometimes buying for the men in your life can be a difficult one, right ladies!? Personalised cards or a custom order can be the answer to your problem!

We have some stock cards in store that can be personalised or customised.

If you are really stumped, message me for a Custom Order ┬á(instructions online). Do they have a particular interest, hobby that you can’t find a card for? I’ll do my best to draft┬ásomething for your approval!┬áIf you like it, you can go ahead and order, there’s no obligation or purchase made until you approve. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Custom Orders PhotoGrid_1485800769983are a great way to have that unique card made for someone that no one else will be sending them!

Have a great week!

It’s All About Organisation!

There are always up and coming occasions that we need to send cards out for and most people use one or more ways to keep a note of all those special dates in their calendar.

At home or at work, I have always been a ‘list maker’, whether that be on paper or electronically. These days it’s┬áa combination of the two!!

I always wonder if at some point with constantly changing technology that we will lose the art of handwriting, which I think would be a shame. I still love to write with coloured ink and a fountain pen, but equally I love technology and use my tablet, laptop and  smartphone so that I can carry the same information with me at all times.

I love being organised, love my planners, smartphone calendar and list apps and always having a way to brain dump, so that nothing I need to do gets forgotten.

So with your┬ábirthdays, celebrations and general greetings all listed somewhere for this year, you can check out the cards available in the store┬áat Bright Craft by Sharon to see if there is something for you! Don’t forget that there are links in the store for Custom Orders too!

 

Happy shopping and have a great weekend!
