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 Christening card

Hello again,

Hope you've all had a good week. It was my birthday on Wednesday and I managed to arrange a day off work. Had a lovely day out and lunch with my sister and spent the evening watching my daughter and her class mates perform their monologues for their GCSE drama course. Also received lots of lovely presents including earrings from my husband and tickets to see Hamlet at the Globe theatre from my oldest daughter. What could be better? I am very lucky!!
Of course, just as important as the presents were the cards, and I received some lovely ones, including a couple of handmade cards, which I'll post on here another day! My brother commented that it is a nightmare trying to find a birthday card for me!

Well, on to today's card offering from me. One of my customers asked if I had any cards for a Christening. I'd been meaning to get around to making some of these, so used her request as an excuse to spend last Sunday coming up with three new designs.

This was one of the designs - I used a tutorial on another blog to print the wording straight onto my card blank and was pretty pleased with how that turned out. The fonts are Papyrus and Scriptina Pro - I love them both and like them even more in combination.

Well, I suppose I'd better head off up to bed - it's 12.45 on Staurday night/Sunday morning!

Back next week - have a great week, and if you get a chance please leave me a comment - I love to read them! (And if you could vote for my daughter - see previous post - I'd be sooooooooooooo grateful!)
