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!

Make It Show, Farnborough

Hi everyone,

What a lovely sunny day it is here in Surrey today! Sadly I won't be seeing much of it as I am snowed under with jobs to do inside. I'm still busily working to finish the first batch of 100 cards for the order I blogged about last week - they are nearly there! Plus I've had a load of orders on Etsy, despite the fact that I've not had time to do any marketing/promotion recently. And I have a 7000 word assignment due in to Kingston Uni as I'm doing the second module of a Masters degree at the moment. Phew, feel tired just talking about it!

Just a quick post today to show you all the goodies I bought on my visit to the Make It Show in Farnborough on Friday.

There's over £120 worth in that little pile! My favourite purchases were these Memory Box dies:

I can't wait to have a play with these but have had to put them away until my essay is written!

 I also bought a set of Spellbinder dies called "Fleur de Lis" which I think will be good to use as a base on some quilled cards, as will the decorative Marianne oblong die. And I couldn't resist this EK Success punch.

As well as these exciting purchases I took the chance to stock up on more mundane items - coloured A4 card, white card, sticky pads, double sided tape, ribbon, gems etc.

These rolls of ribbon were a bargain - 23 metres for £3.00 - sorry its a dreadful photo - took the photos last night in artificial light.

Have a great week. I'll try and pop in next week for a very quick post. Don't forget to spread the news about my Mother's Day card giveaway (scroll down).
