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!

Quilled birthday card

Hello again,

How are you today? I'm having a very relaxed weekend for a change as I have next week off work as it's half term. Lots of time for quilling hopefully!

The card I want to show you today is one that I made for my sister's birthday last June. I had to borrow it back to take these photos!


I made this card at a workshop run by Diane Boden Crane in East London. Diane is the most incredible quiller - so neat and precise. She has the most fantastic ideas for quilling designs. Some of you might know of the books she has published: "Quilled Greetings Cards" and "Miniature Quilling", both by Diane Crane. If you ever have a chance to do one of her workshops, I don't think you'd be disappointed.  Diane and her husband now run JJQuilling supplying anything to do with quilling, including a huge range of colours and widths of papers, with a very personal service.



This card was one of Diane's designs - quite a contemporary twist on a traditional craft I think!

Well, that's it from me today. As it's half term this week, I am hoping to be posting more often than usual - and I will be back with the Mother's Day giveaway I promised last week. Til then, happy crafting!

Jill
