Welcome in the spring!

I am hoping this post will cheer up those who have suffered from the terrible weather recently. I am looking to spring with hopes for plenty of sunshine, chocolate eggs and gorgeous flowers.

Today I have a few new card collections to share with you, so that you can order in time for the Spring. By now you'll be so busy with Christmas in store but when you have breather do take a look and plan ahead for the sunnier seasons to come.

Firstly, Mother's Day is on Sunday 10th March 2013.

 Following shortly after is Easter Sunday on 31st March.

I have also developed a new range of general male and female Birthday cards which are perfect for a wide audience. The illustrations are based on more unusual past times and Birthday treats.

Please get in touch if you would like to know more about the ranges and for details of the online catalogue and full price lists call me on 07817 412086 or email

'Tomorrow' Product Launch at QVC

From the day I heard I had been selected by Kelly Hoppen to work with her for the Prince's Trust Tomorrow campaign it has been a whirlwind. You will see from past blog posts all of the great opportunities being involved in the campaign has brought, from being photographed by Rankin, meeting Kelly Hoppen MBE at her design studio and beginning the mentoring and design process. Appearing in the Sunday Times Style Magazine, Grazia, Hello! and the Metro, being interviewed by MSN Style and meeting the team at QVC with whom we are launching our interior products.

The whole process has been amazing, there have been so many highlights. I have always been surprised by what the Prince's Trust have in-store next. The campaign has been a huge success, the mentoring and the products achieved from each couple paired for the Tomorrow campaign has been amazing, and there is still more to come!

I am delighted with the amount that Kelly and I are hoping to raise for the Trust through our appearance on QVC next Monday! You can look out for us at midday, 3pm, 6pm and 10pm, four slots throughout the day where I will be with Kelly showing what we have designed. I cannot wait! I feel much more at ease after my guest audition at QVC and the live show is going to be fantastic.

I don't want it all to come to an end. It has been so inspiring working with such an amazing designer and businesswomen. Kelly has all the design and business nous I hope to continue learning by. Day to day our end products are very different, but our collaboration has been a huge success and I am so proud of the final products. It has certainly cemented the fact that I would like to license more of my designs onto other products, and being mentored by Kelly has shown me that applying my designs to fabric is different to the approach I take for my greeting cards.
Thanks also to 'Greetings Today' and 'Progressive Greetings' magazine who have featured the story!

So don't forget, we are live on QVC Monday November 19th at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 10pm launching the throw and cushion we have created. They are the perfect gifts for Christmas or just for yourself, and it's a guilt-free purchase as the proceeds go back to the Prince's Trust.

I will be following up Monday's show with lots more news and photographs and some other announcements too, so keep an eye out for those!

New range - Sweet Tooth

As you know there is a bit of a romantic in me, and I love designing cards for sweethearts. My new range 'Sweet Tooth' is a collection of 24 charming colourful characters and sweet and some not so sweet captions that cover the many different ups and downs we go through with our loved ones from 'I can't smile without you' to 'I'm so angry right now'.

With my love for character design and anything Kawaii (Japanese- meaning cute, pretty and charming) this range developed very quickly. My usual pile of thumbnail sketches grew and grew in the Studio, and I knew this range was going to be hand-finished with wobbly eyes to make them even sweeter.

The whole collection is printed onto a beautiful textured board which adds a further tactile nature to the cards, and come individually wrapped in my bespoke biodegradable bags, this time with a gorgeous green envelope. They measure 10.5 x 14.8cm and are priced at £2.40.

I hope you'll love my loveable characters and find many reasons to send them!
