If you have a special colour theme for your Special Day, please let me know as I can alter the colour of the hearts, and I have a selection of fonts for you to choose from.

I can also add trimmings of your choice – buttons, ribbons, a ‘Wedding Ring’, or leave the cards plain.

Illustrating Life

10 Apr

Introducing … Pikaland

I  have added a few new blogs and websites to my blogroll recently, and just thought I would properly introduce you to one of them – Pikaland.

This blog is all about illustration and art, but it features so much more than just pen and pencil illustrations.  They find and champion examples of any and every type of illustration you can think of – and more.  Previously I have seen work large and small, from illustrators who use paper folding, watercolours, wood carving, computer programmes or textiles to create their work.

There will probably be styles that you love and styles that you don’t, but if you are ever struggling for visual inspiration, try a look here

I’ve been featured …

2 Apr

… by the Inspired Celebration blog

I was very pleased to have one of my greetings cards featured on the Inspired Celebration blog recently, as they also believe in the ethos of handmade, and supporting independent UK designer makers.
Whether you are organising an event yourself and are looking for ‘that’ special touch to add to your celebration, or if you are attending a Wedding or party as a guest and are looking for a unique gift – Inspired Celebrations will often have beautiful suggestions for you.

So if you like the idea of including handmade designs within your celebration but don’t know where to start, try taking a look at their blog.

New Wedding and Party Table Stationery Designs

New photos of new designs

Here are some new images of my new favour labels, name cards, and table number tags first shown at the Gainsborough Old Hall Wedding Fayre.  They can be attached to plant pots, jam jars full of sweets or any other favours you can think of to suit your party or Wedding.

I can alter the text style, size, and words to different names or phrases to suit your event.  If you have an idea please get in touch.

Thank you to professional photographer Reg Moore who I met at a Wedding Fayre last weekend, who gave me a little photography ‘tip’ for taking item photos, and I think these ones are definitely an improvement from my previous images.  But there is always room for improvement, so I will keep on practicing…
