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 magician birthday card

Hello there,

Just popping in really quickly again. I thought I'd have time to blog a bit more in the holidays but this week my feet haven't touched the ground. Happily I've been busy doing lots of nice things, like catching up with friends, shopping with my daughters and enjoying the wonderful weather, so can't complain.

This card is another "one-off", made ages ago, at a workshop with Diane Boden-Crane.

Nothing else to say really - short and sweet.

Until next time,

Jill x

Quilled butterfly wedding invitation

Hello again,

Yay, the sun is out (at last!). It's been an unbelievably dismal summer so far here in the UK, so a glimpse of the sun is most welcome.

Today's card is another custom special order from a customer. She emailed me a picture of the wedding invitation and asked for the wedding congratulations card to reflect it. The original had printed butterflies, one pink and one grey, which I've tried to replicate in quilling.

I tried to use similar fonts too. I used Century Gothic and Edwardian Script ITC.

That's it for today but I might be able to post a bit more often now that the school holidays are here!

Quilled bunnies birthday card

Evening everyone,

Sorry for my absence again last week - I always forget how frantically busy things become in these last weeks of term!

My youngest daughter, Annie, was 15 on 3rd July. She has two pet rabbits - one honey coloured, one grey and white. The grey and white one is always trying to hide. I made her this card based on an original design by Diane Boden-Crane, who now runs JJ Quilling (supplying absolutely everything you could want for quilling and more!).

It's a very exciting time for Annie at the moment. She recently won a talent competition and as her prize gets to sing in front of the crowds at the Torch Relay celebration event in Guildford, Surrey on July 20th. I'm so nervous for her but she seems to be taking it all in her stride!

My son, Joe, has left today for a PGL watersports holiday in Spain - the house seems a lot quieter and calmer without him but I'm not sure I like it!

I'm hoping that I'll soon be able to post a bit more regularly as I'll have time in the school holidays. Until then,

Quilled card for musician

My sister asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is soon to turn 60. She suggested a musical theme, as he is a musician. I had made this card for my daughter's 18th birthday:

I thought this design in a more monochrome colour-scheme might be more suitable for a man so this is what I made:

I think it works. Do you?

That's it for today - short and sweet!
