Do You Like Modern Calligraphy?

Friday, 27 February 2015

I'm so sorry to be later posting this than I had promised. But, after 2 days trying, I have finally added my new sentiments for Mother's Day to the Boutique : )

They are called 'For Mum' & they are a set of 20 sentiments, in a selection of different sizes and typeface styles. And if you're enjoying the current huge trend for Modern Calligraphy & Hand Lettering, then I think you're going to love these : ) The key typeface in this set is in the most gorgeous, free-spirited, modern calligraphy style.

As you've probably already guessed from their name, they are all designed for your Mum cards … so Mum's birthdays, and, of course, Mother's Day, our next big card-making occasion here in the UK. It isn't too far away now. The Spring crafting season is a busy one isn't it? But the sentiments are suitable for many more special moments & occasions too : )

Let me show them to you …

'For Mum' Sentiments



'For Mum' Sentiments

- 20 Mum-themed sentiments in a selection of modern calligraphic & mixed-typeface styles

More Hand Cut Florals & A Sneak Peek

Monday, 23 February 2015

From pale pink & black to pale pink & yellow, this card is basically made in exactly the same way as the one I shared yesterday … a white card base, hand-cut pink florals & sentiment layered onto a contrasting patterned backing paper & finished with sequins & crystals.

The only changes I made are that I chose different papers to work with. And I added a small glitter heart, a little glitter to my flower & a couple of rows of machine stitching to finish this one.

I always love creating with pink. I can usually find a way to create with it for most occasions. But I think I've just fallen in love with yellow too!



The sentiment I've used is brand new, and it's from a new set which I'll be adding to the Boutique on Thursday. I'm so happy with it. I absolutely love everything about it. And I think you're going to love it too : )

More soon : )
