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 retirement card

Hello everyone,

Thought I'd just pop in to show you a new design which has just been added to my Folksy and Etsy shops. As often happens, this was inspired by a special request from a customer who asked if I could make a larger card for her, as it was to be for the retirement of a colleague and lots of people needed to sign it. The largest cards I normally make are 6ins x 8ins but I had recently bought some 8ins x 8ins card blanks, so offered to make her a card in this size. This is the result:

For the original design I need to credit Diane Boden of JJ QUilling, but as usual I've put my own spin on it.

I've since been working on a similar design, in different colours, for a birthday, but will share that another day!

Quilled 1st birthday card

Just popping in really quickly to show you a card I made for a customer last month, for her little girl's first birthday. 

I am thinking this design has lots of possibilities for other occasions and other colourways - watch this space!

Said it was going to be quick!
