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 chocolates

Hey there everyone,

I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas and are looking forward to everything that the new year will bring. I'm a real sucker for making lots of New Year's resolutions (and then breaking them within a week!). One of my resolutions last year was to create and maintain this blog. I didn't manage to post as often as I would have liked to, but we're still here and I'm finishing off the year with this post!

These cards feature some really cute quilled chocolates. I made these at a workshop with Diane Boden a long time ago but have never really been able to work out what to do with them. I had an idea about using them for Valentine's cards but just could not get inspired about a layout. So a couple of days ago I just sat and played and this is what I came up with:

If you'd like to have a go at making these quilled chocolates, they are featured in Diane's book "Miniature Quilling". They look very realistic considering they are just made of paper!

Enjoy your New Year's celebrations,

Still here!

Hi everyone,

Wow, I can't believe it is over a month since I last posted. I don't think I'll reach my target of one post for every week of the year (ie. 52 posts), this year. I've been kept busy making lots of orders from my lovely customers, as well as trying to keep on top of paperwork for the day job. Never enough hours in the day, days in the week or weeks in the year!
Thought I'd just drop in really quickly here to show you a set of little Christmas gift tags. It's hard to get an idea of size from the photos but these are really tiny - about 3.5 x 4 cms. 

I need to make another set of these this evening ready for what must be one of my last Christmas orders for this year.

To those of you still following me, thanks so much for hanging on in there. My intention is always to post more frequently - let's see how things turn out in the New Year!

Hope all your Christmas preparations are on track. Sadly I've been so busy that I've made no cards for myself to send this year - had to nip out to buy some!

Until next time,
