About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

Quilled bauble card, take two

Hi everyone,

As promised here is the card from yesterday, made in a different colourway.

This time I have used red paper with a shiny gold edge. Not sure the photos really reflect how pretty this card is. It will be winging its way to my parents in a few weeks. 
I'm now off to list both these designs in my Etsy and Folksy shops (links to the left). They can be personalised especially for you.
I will hopefully be back again soon - half term began for me today and I'm not back at work until Nov 5th, so hopefully lots of time for crafting and blogging!

Another quilled Christmas card design

Hi everyone,

I've been getting in a festive mood,  making lots of new Christmas designs. I have had this idea for a while and finally found a moment to make it. Happily it was one of those designs which looked exactly as I had hoped - doesn't happen often :) It is a very clean and simple design, as are many of my cards.

The photos are not great, I'm afraid as I've been struggling to find a day when the light is good enough. The bauble is made with white paper edged with pearl blue - from JJ Quilling, of course. The bow is a Memory Box die I think. I really should find out how to link the supplies I've used at the bottom of a post - can anyone help me?
I made another version of this card in a different colourway - pop back tomorrow to see it.

Until then, have fun,

More Christmas...

Hello again,

Just popping in quickly again with another new Christmas design. Not a completely new design, but a new take (and new colours) on an old one. 

Again, this card can be personalised to say anything you'd like. For sale in my Etsy and Folksy shops soon,

Shhh! Don't mention the "C" word

Hi everyone,

I know for some people, the beginning of October is far too early to be mentioning Christmas. But, being involved in the greeting card industry means that Christmas comes very early! Last year, I sold my first Christmas cards in August and the last ones in mid November. So, hoping I don't offend anyone, I thought I ought to start showcasing some of my new Christmas designs for this year. 

I have always loved making quilled snowflakes - something about the delicacy of the paper swirls and twirls seems so appropriate to represent the fragility of each pretty flake. 

Here I have combined the quilled snowflake with some sweet little die cut snowflakes, all white on white - very frosty effect. I've also added a scattering of gems to add a little bit of sparkle.
The message on this card can be personalised - it can say anything you'd like!

Hope you like it! Please let me know what you think,
