New Baby!

19 Jun
This week I have been working on a card for my brother and sister-in-law who had their 2nd baby on Monday.  A second girl to add to their family. 

As we knew what to expect – a girl – and on which date – 14th June – I already had some ideas about what I wanted to do.  In fact I had already made a  design for some wedding invitation samples which I wanted to use in a different way.  Also, whilst I know that pink is a favourite for little girls, I’m not a great fan and wanted to do something a little bit different. 

Front & back of the card

If you’ve looked at my Weddings gallery you will already be familiar with much of the design as it is based on one that I have used on some samples there.  It is simple, but feminine and the heart feature is perfect for placing the new baby’s name in.  I also added some butterfly silhouettes.  My 4 yr old son, when asked what he thought, said that he thought the butterfly on the front wasn’t finished because it didn’t have any colour on it … mmmm, he may have a point there, but it’s too late now!

To make the final card I printed out the front and back of the card onto quality matt photo paper, cut them out and stuck them onto some purple card stock which was folded down the centre.  I also printed out an inside page with a greeting and a repeat of the single flower motif.  The inside section was glued with a thin strip to one side of the card and then I tied a coordinating ribbon around the centre of the card.  I added a few crystal embellishments and the result you can see here.

The finished product

 You may also have noticed that I made an envelope to go with the card.  So by the time my nieces family have received all their specially designed goods they will be well and truly floraled out!! 🙂  But I enjoyed doing it!

By the way, I’m working on a new online shop where you will be able to use my designs and personalise them to your requirements so keep checking back on the website for more information on that.

All the best

Stylish Stripes Options

14 Jun

Classic Stripes Colour/Button Options

Following on from last week’s Stylish Black & White invitation I thought it might be a good idea to show how designs can be altered to suit the client’s colour requirements and also the occasion.

Taking the Stylish Black & White invitation I have changed the base colour from black to a variety of other shades.  I have also changed the silhouette in the button which can change the whole feel of the invitation.  For example a bride and groom in the button makes it suitable for a wedding or engagement. 

So once again I would like to remind you that all my designs are adaptable.  If you like the feel of one of them but think it isn’t quite right for your event, call me or e-mail me and we’ll work out an adaptation.

Take care all!


New look to the site

31 May

For those of you who have been here before you will notice that the look of the site has changed.  That’s because, although I loved the very pink and pretty look of before, the style was particularly difficult to read as it was very narrow and the type therefore had to be small.  So to celebrate June I have changed to a new theme entitled ‘Bueno’ which is much easier on the eye.

I do hope you will find it a much better layout.
