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!

Happy Easter

Hello everyone,

A very Happy Easter Sunday to all my followers. Just a very quick post today to showcase some new Easter card designs. These were a special order for a customer and never actually made it into my shops, but they'll be ready for next year! Nothing like being prepared!!

Have a wonderful time whatever you are up to this Easter!

Quiled birthday card

Hello everyone and a very happy Easter to you all,

I'm enjoying a little bit of "down time" to do some of the things I rarely get a chance to do when I'm at work, including posting on here. No new Easter designs to show you, but thought I'd show you a special order I recently made for a customer. She liked this card:

but wanted a bigger 6" x 8" card, with a longer message. Here is the design I came up with:

Looking at it now there are some changes I'd make, but I think the customer was happy.

Enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend!

Diamond anniversary card

As I mentioned in the last post, it is my parents' diamond (60th) wedding anniversary soon - tomorrow in fact. I've already shown you the invitations so thought I'd show you the card I made them. Earlier this month I had made a large card (8" x 8") as a special order for a customer:

I don't think mum and dad would appreciate such a large card, so made a very similar one but slightly smaller (6" x 8"). I'm sorry about the quality of the photo - I took it at night in my studio, rather than in natural light with my usual set up. But I'm sure you get the idea!

Happy anniversary mum and dad - 60 years is certainly something to celebrate!
