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!

Special order quilled card

Evening everyone,

Hope you've all had a great weekend. I can't believe how quickly it goes - it's now 7.30 on Sunday and I still have a heap of things to get done. Mind you, I spent all day Friday at a Health Spa with a very good friend, relaxing and generally doing very little and by the evening I was exhausted!! So I think the lesson to be learned is just to keep going!

Today's card that I'm going to show you was another special request from one of my lovely customers. She lives in Australia and wanted a special card to send to a relation in England.

It was her idea to outline a map of Australia with quilled daisies, in gold and green (appropriate Australian colours!).

I was a bit concerned about how this was going to turn out but the customer was delighted with the photos I sent through - hope she likes it as much in real life!

Today I've been busy coming up with new designs for Christening cards - not totally happy with any of them yet but I'll post them on here next time so you can see what you think.

Right, better go and sort out the teenagers in the family - we are living in a state of heightened tensions at the moment as one is taking A-levels, one doing GCSEs and the other revising for mock GCSEs. What joy!!
