BLOG HOP- Welcome

Well, Hello there....


You are probably joining me from the fabulous blog of Mary Tanana, also known as Groovity Designs. I love Mary's designs, they are so bright, bold and vivid. What a fabulous collection she created. 

Before I talk a little bit about myself, I'd just like to thank Rosie of Believe Creative Studio for curating this fantastic event, and also to MajoBV for designing the fabulous Flyer. 

Okay, time for me to shine. 


My collection was inspired by the theme of 'flight', and influenced by Pantone's 2013 colour 'emerald'. I also needed to create a collection of Valentines designs to be sent to the printers in time for the big day (14th February in the UK). 

Lets kill 2 birds with one stone, I thought. 
(Pun Intended)

The Brief said 3 designs to create a mini collection. But I'll be honest, I struggled to reign myself in and stop. So here we have 4, one with several colour variations. 

Naughty me.

So, What will I be doing with these designs? Seems a shame to just leave them sat in a file on my computer, don't you agree?

The colours are very on trend, and the theme is currently relevant, given its valentines day soon. 

But I also think they could be used for many 'female' occasions...

Mothers Day, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Well Wishes etc.

So this is what I came up with:

Blank Notebooks

 Cards and GiftTags:

 These are now available to buy in my Etsy store, and I shall be expanding the range to Keyrings, cushions, coasters, fridge magnets in the very near future. 

Anyway, I've shared enough eye candy with you for now. Time to pass you forward to the brilliant Cara Holland of Pattern Booth

Enjoy the rest of the Bloghop, and please please do follow right through until the end, it's really worth the time and effort. There's too much talent amongst this bunch to miss even one blog.


NOTE: This blog runs until Sunday Midnight.
