Getting Personal

I stocked up on these fab box frames with the view to using them to get creative with a few ideas.  I loved the fact that I could be free with colour  to design this frame for a friends 40th Birthday. She was so pleased to have some 'artwork' that she could put up in her home that was just for her, rather than all her partners photography.  I have already started working on a simple design for Father's Day too.

Quick Turn Around

When you get a call to say 2 A5 sized cards are needed by the next day... Thankfully inspiration came fairly easily and I was chuffed with the outcome of these cards, I can't say that always happens when I work under pressure! These cards were made for a clients Granchildren.  A girly pink one with "twinkle" and butterflies and a card for a boy to represent his football team.

New Year, BIG commissions!

Well the first commission of they year was a biggen.  A special leaving card for a man in a publishing company.  My client wanted it to have the amount of time he had been at the company, and year est.1995 on it.  The idea developed into a vintage style card.  It grew from a small A6 size to a large A4 size for other people in the company to sign.  Bigger cards like this prove a challenge as I don't have card in tick of that size.  So... When it comes to large cards like this, I was able to adapt the idea to look like a book in order to use 2 different A4 pieces of card.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't show up all the details and effect of the card, but I was pleased with the results.

Ooh I am getting into changing my style of photos. I am loving the apps that you can get to enhance the look of your work, yes I used enhance not change! As at the end of the day you still had to make the original... Will post a before and after picture of a photo I have been playing with.

Spot the difference?!

Ready... Steady...

All set up and ready to go!  So much hard work and effort goes into doing these Christmas Sales, but I get such a buzz from seeing what sells and a great way or advertising among friends.  They always seem worth it in the end!

Christmas is coming...

Spent the day pricing and cataloging my stock for my impending Craft Sale! Each year I like to make up a DIY kit (aimed at the children).  This year is a Snowman.  The previous years have been a Christmas tree and Gingerbread man.  A great way to introduce kids to simple crafts.

Sparkle without the bang

Here is one I made earlier.  A card made for a commission.  I quite enjoyed doing this commission as my client knew exactly what she wanted and although you may be thinking it doesnt leave much room for creativity, sometimes its handy for a quicker card
