You will be able to choose from the two birthday designs below in the new home and away jersey colours. They can all be personalised with the name of the person you are giving to, along with the number of their favourite player!

Custom Orders and New Things!

So this week I’ve been busy designing some custom order wedding celebration cards and new stock items 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 people 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!!  🙂

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!

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! 🙂 ) who have a favourite one. So I have designed and added some new cards to 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)

Spring is coming!

Photo Collage Maker_pj1XnlWalking to the village Post Office yesterday was lovely! Beautiful sunny, warm and great day to enjoy the outdoors. Spring is definitely in the air!

Easter is also only a few weeks away and I will be adding some cards to the store for those that like to send them. As always you can have them personalised and also request a Custom Order if there is something particular that you would like to have made. Bright and colourful as Spring should be!

Reaching Far and Wide…. Spread Your Wings!

When you are selling your craft online it’s hard at first to know if you should stick to local shipping or add overseas.

I took a little time to think over this one, how much would it cost, time taken to get items shipped out of the UK and eventually decided that it really made little difference! OK, so sticking a stamp on a UK item is pretty easy and walking to the post box is good exercise 🙂 Posting overseas means a quick trip to the local post office. Either way, when you are ‘working from home’, it’s nice to get out into the world and change your environment for a short while. All about the work/life balance!

This is something that I don’t regret in the slightest. I’ve had many orders from overseas proving to be a positive decision. If you limit yourself to a restricted audience, you limit the possibilities for sales. How silly would that be. So don’t be afraid to spread your wings, you may just fly!

This week I have added a new birthday card to the store….Baymax, 20170301_113848from the animated movie Big Hero 6. He’s popular with the kids and one of my grandson’s favourites too. As always this card can be personalised with the age and or name of the recipient. You can also request a Custom Order for this card design if you have something else in mind!

 

There were also some remakes of older cards too, so check out the store!

Have a great weekend everyone!

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 a 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 birthdays, celebrations and general greetings all listed somewhere for this year, you can check out the cards available in the store at 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!

Personalised Cards!

Well, after a great weekend, it’s already been a busy start to a new week! Orders made and despatched out the door yesterday to get the week off to a good start.

I had an unusual request (and a first time for this), which was fun to do, personalising a card with a name in a different language! Being flexible and able to offer these kind of things are what makes you stand out from the crowd. It was also nice to have a convo with a customer, who was so pleased that I was able to do this for him 🙂

Last week a new kids birthday card was added to the store for all the Frozen fans, meaning there are now two available, Olaf and now Elsa! Both can be personlised as usual on request.

Don’t forget to get those last minute ❤ Valentines cards ❤ and I hope you all have a great week!
