Wedding stationary and decorations

Firstly, congratulations to Harry and Meghan on their wedding day! Secondly, as this weekend is all about the royal wedding, I thought I would share some handmade wedding stationary and decorations if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person. Something Old Let's be honest, the vast majority of us who have to produce something ourselves… Continue reading Wedding stationary and decorations

Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

It was my birthday last week, to be honest it was a bit overshadowed by passing my viva - it still doesn't feel real and I'm wandering about in a bit of a daze! However, with birthdays come lots of lovely gifts and thank you cards (because everyone likes snail mail that isn't a bill,… Continue reading Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

Hey Foxy birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card in November 2017, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it.

Steampunk Birthday card

My friend is an acomplished seamstress and loves gaming so she makes her own costumes for… Continue reading Steampunk Birthday card
