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!

Annie's birthday cards

Hello everyone,

It's nearly the end of the summer holidays for me - back to the day job on Monday. Not a happy thought! I've had a great 6 weeks, with lots of time for organising my studio and crafting. But I've also done a lot of sorting out in other parts of the house, tidying and clearing out rubbish - our recycling bin has been overflowing most of the time! My youngest daughter Annie decided to join in with the spring (or summer?) cleaning and had a sort out in  her bedroom. As a result she found a box containing many of the birthday cards I've made her over the past 17 years! I thought you might like to see them. I must admit I had completely forgotten about most of these. They are not all quilled and a few years are missing - no idea where they went!

Her 4th birthday card, made from a design by Diane Boden from JJ Quilling.

This is her 6th birthday card, during her "Angelina Ballerina" phase!

Another Diane Boden design for her 8th birthday.

I think it was around age 9 that she developed her passion for rabbits - several subsequent cards, as well as this one, feature bunnies as you will see!

A bunny again for her 10th birthday.
This is one of my favourites - a concertina card for her 11th birthday.
This must have been around the time her Harry Potter obsession began - her 12th birthday. 

An easel card for her 13th birthday.

Back to quilling for her 14th birthday.

And, finally, more bunnies and more quilling for her 15th birthday.

Hope you enjoyed seeing those!!

Have a great weekend,



  1. What a great selection & great fun to look back on over the years.
    Hope to catch up with you in Dereham.

  2. Lovely cards!
