set price paper cut out...

i was recently talking to a friend who told me she would love a cut out for her new home but probably cannot afford it. after asking how much she would be happy to spend, we decided on a set price of £25.

i made her an A5 cutout with a simple design based on the quote she gave me "she just couldn't trust herself with cheese"...



i'm glad to say she is very happy.

one of a kind save the dates...

recently i was asked to create some save the dates, i was asked for something that was personal to the couple. they wanted something that would describe the laid back and rustic style of their forthcoming wedding, using their colour theme.

this is my 'under construction' design which is set in the Irish countryside, where the wedding will take place...




i hand cut the design out of thick paper then printed it onto magnetic paper so they could be placed on the fridge, and not forgotten!




(they also got the original cut-out to keep!)

if any-one is interested in their own save the dates please don't hesitate to email me, they were perfectly affordable.

seaside memorial cut out...

this was the first commission i was asked to do, so will always be a favourite of mine. because of a huge uni distraction, it took a while to materialise, but thankfully i was forgiven...

this is a dedication to a cherished grandmother, i was asked to fill it with as many memories as i could...
