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!

Diamond wedding anniversary invitations

I knew it had been a while since I'd last posted on here, but can't believe it was way back in January. I have lots of new designs to show you so please stay with me but today I thought I'd show you one of the reasons for my long absence. On 3rd April this year my parents will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary and I have been busy making the invitations for them.

 No quilling here - just a very simple design, I know, but sometimes (always?) the simple ones take twice as long to create. Once I had the design it was fairly simple to put them together though. I used white linen card from PaperMill Direct, glimmer paper from Stampin' Up and little diamante buckles MeiFlowers.
Here they are all together:

 I am quite looking forward to the celebration - I think it will be the first time the whole family will be together for 10 years, since their Golden Wedding anniversary!
