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 Father's Day

Hello, and a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. 

Just thought I'd pop in and show you the card I made for my dad this year. I have to admit, making cards for men is not my thing. Whereas for female, a little arrangement of quilled flowers usually does the trick, men are much more difficult. As you can imagine, after 20 years of card making, my inspiration for something new for my dad is fairly limited. Over the years he's received from me cards with quilled owls, quilled frogs, quilled ducks amongst the bulrushes, a quilled fisherman, a quilled sail boat, quilled hot air balloons, a quilled garden scene..... the list goes on. So this year, I've gone for something completely different. 

This card has less quilling on it than any card I've ever made! Just three little solid coils below the message.

Hope my dad likes it - I'm happy with it as clean and simple always wins out for me! What do you think? 

Have a great day however you are celebrating Father's Day,



  1. Hi Jill. Just seen this on Pinterest.Fabulous card that can be adapted for any occasion. Could you tell me which alphabet dies I'm assuming you used for the Happy please? Such a lovely size.I'll have to have a look at your recent cards now, I love quilling but don't do enough.
    Thanks Tracey.x

    1. That card was made a good while ago and I can't remember which die set I would have used but Stampin Up have a very similar one in their current catalogue - called Playful Alphabet - I'm a Stampin Up rep so let me know if you need more info.
