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!

Another quilled birth announcement

Hi everyone,

Yes, I know, two posts in a week - how unbelievable is that? I'm trying hard to catch up, as when I started this blog I was intending to post at least once a week, so I need to have 52 completed posts by the end of the year. As I've actually missed quite a few weeks I need to start posting more frequently.

As promised, here is another variation using the design from last time on a quilled birth announcement card:

This time it is on a bigger card - 6" x 8" with a little bit of further embellishment in the form of a quilled flower and leaf spray.

I bought these card blanks, with the embossed edge and frame, many years ago from a company in the UK called "Craft Creations" - I think I originally bought 500 and I'm now down to my last 50. Sadly, they have been discontinued so I won't be able to get any more (unless anyone out there knows a source). I'll be very sad when they are used up - they are the perfect base for a lot of my quilled designs. I still have lots of 6" x 4" cards left, just running low on 6" x 8". So if anyone has seen anything similar anywhere please let me know - I'd love to find a new supplier!

Well, that's all from me today - will try and be back soon.

Jill x
