a very bittersweet announcement... 
i have stopped taking commissions for this year. 
i am now fully booked until i go on maternity leave in July. as much as i would love to say yes to everybody there are just not enough hours in the day, and i don't want to over do it at the moment! I will start taking commissions again in the new year, but will still be checking my email, so please get in touch if you have any queries. 

i will still be updating this blog weekly (hopefully) with past commissions so you don't forget about me!

paper cut wedding invite design...

this piece was commissioned by a lovely lady who found me via pinterest. she wanted to commission me to design and cut a piece which she could then use as wedding invitations. the piece was later professionally scanned and printed to provide her with lots of invites! she wanted me to include the main wedding details, the two of them together and a little something to describe each one, in this case a rugby ball and a cake! their wedding was last weekend, i hope she had a wonderful day!

i am in bloom, and it is blooming very quickly!

so this is happening!

i have decided to stop work in July in order to organise myself and try to rest (without feeling guilty about it)... also by then i'm not sure if i'll be able to reach my cutting mat!

therefore i will have to stop accepting commissions as of early June in order to get everything done in time. so if you are thinking of getting a commission for this year, please get in contact before June to avoid disappointment! i will of course make last calls and let it be known if i have any spaces or sudden bursts of energy (ha!). After this i will start taking commissions again in the new year!

over my leave, once i learn the art of multi tasking with a baby, i will be reading and replying to emails as usual (but probably not as quickly), so please get in touch if you have questions, i also still have a back catalog of commissions i will be posting to this blog, so you don't forget what a paper cut is.

however my main source of contact with the outside world will be my personal blog paper & pasta, where i will try to share what i learn about becoming an actual parent and will use as a place to put the inevitable baby photos without my other social medias becoming too 'wallet in the face'y...
described perfectly here, thanks family guy...

a paper cut wedding gift for a skydiving couple...

this is an A5 commissioned piece i made for a previous recipient of a paper cut (a nice glittery one!) who wanted to give her best friend a special wedding gift. i was told that the couple got engaged after doing a skydive (what an epic day that must have been!) and that they love cupcakes and the countryside. this is what i came up with...

if you are interested in a commission or would like to find out a bit more about the process please feel free to email me at
