Made for You by Me! 2011
Today, as I was making a card to send to a friend I came up with these little designs. I hope you like them as much as I do. Very simple and easy to produce. I'd like to start making more of these as a branch off from my "Made For You By Me!" range. I don't have a name for these bugs yet but I'll think of one soon. Please let me know what you think. Cute?


We went for a walk to Sands End on Tuesday and I was itching to play with the sand. It's been too long since I've been to a beach. The sand was perfect to write in :) Here are a few things I did.

1, 2, 3... Whitby

Here are a few shots from our trip away to Whitby last weekend to see the In-Laws. It was glorious weather and I can't believe how hot it got on Monday!! And I think I got a slight tan too!! Score ha!

Wow, it's been a while. Sorry guys. There are more posts to come but I'm just setting up a new home computer system so I will be up to date with posts asap. I've got some great photos from our Whitby trip this weekend. Was lovely to see the In-Laws and friends. And of course it was THE HOTTEST DAY I can remember in this country yesterday!! It was ridiculously hot. Though I was going to pass out. A welcome change to the wet and windy weather of Huddersfield! And what a contrast from my last visit to Whitby - if you don't believe me see my post from my University trip on 1st October 2010!!!
Anyway, new posts will be up shortly. Thanks for being patient! :) x

Paper Contacts

My first book.
This is the first attempt I have done to make a simple book - using instructions from a book I bought at the beginning of my second year of University - and I decided that I really needed a contact book. I found some card and pieces laying around my desk and began to make this :) It's not perfect but it serves it's purpose and holds my necessary addresses for writing to my family.

Special Package

Some more to add to my collection :)
My Cath Kidston collection is gradually growing. We (me, my Mum and a friend) had a trip to Manchester City for the afternoon and I was introduced to the brand new Manchester store. I got an amazing purse to match my bag - yes slightly sad but I love it! However there was an issue that eventually was resolved by returning the purse and they sent me a brand new one through their own postal service all wrapped up in the infamous CK patterned wrapping. They threw in a free bag and badge just for me. Nice! I wanted to show you what a lovely little package I received today.

Personal Invitation Design

Masquerade!!! ("Paper faces on parade...")
It's coming up to my 21st and my friend's 30th. We decided to have a joint party and celebrate in style. I've been a massive fan of The Phantom of the Opera - hence the quote - since I was about 15 years old and ever since I saw the film I have wanted to have a masquerade ball. Our venue is a little small to host a full on masquerade however we've asked people to dress up and wear masks. Should be fun. Hope you like my design. I do :)

Order of Service Design

I just remembered that I designed our Order of Service for the wedding and thought I'd put it up :) The illustration I drew for the background was of my bouquet. I thought it was a simple way to add some personal detail to the layout. We decided to print them on basic print paper - the majority of people just end up playing with them through the service anyway! They did the job well I thought.
