About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

New crafty blog for the new year!!


Is there anyone there?

Well, my new year's resolution (along with the other more usual ones of losing weight, taking more exercise etc etc!) was to start a blog and here I am on the first day of 2012, making my first post. Just to make things clear from the start, I know I won't be able to post on here every day. For the moment I will be posting at weekends so please come back once a week to see what I've been up to.

I'm hoping this blog will be a place where I can share some of my creations and inspirations with you.

To let you know a little bit about me I'm Jill, fifty-something, mother to Jessica (18), Joe (16) and Annie (14) and wife to Geoff. During the day I work for Surrey County Council as a specialist teacher, helping and advising other teachers on meeting the needs of the special needs children in their classes.

But my passion is for papercrafting, especially card-making and specifically quilling. I currently sell my cards online via two sites: Etsy and Folksy, under the name of PaperDaisyCardDesign. I'm sure eventually I'll work out how to put buttons on here to link straight through to my shops, but meanwhile the links are:
http://www.paperdaisycarddesign.etsy.com/ and http://www.paperdaisycarddesign.folksy.com/

Just to start this blog off, the images in this post are of two New Year cards I made today. I have used the Quickutz Studio alphabet dies for the wording and the 2" x 2" confetti die. No quilling on these cards, obviously, but I do have lots of quilled cards to show you so please come back next weekend!

Meanwhile Happy New Year to all my readers.......anyone????
