...well, what an afternoon, working on the new collection ideas and playing around with possible new colour palettes for 2011/12 (the whole process always takes around 10 months which is why I have to work so far ahead!).... and found a lovely new way of working with colour in the form of a bean made out of jelly. Never new Jellybeans were so addictive, and of course, every time a colour line was produced it had to be tasted to ensure that it tasted as good as it looked. However, the colour palette that consisted of Toasted Marshmallow, Caramel Corn and Root Beer will definately not be contributing to the final collections. So from that point I decided it was time to play with colour using Photoshop and not my taste buds!......

...just wanted to say thank you to Ruth and Euan (who featured in the 'Real Life' section of this season's Scottish Weddings magazine) for their very kind words in the editorial regarding their stationery and the service provided. It made our day!!!...

...well finally got round to creating a little shop that you can browse through at your leisure. Here I will be selling little snippets from the studio that have been produced specially for the shop. Some itmes may be wedding related such as place cards so you can write your own guest names directly onto them, others may be group selections of the greeting card ranges recently launched, and also with the festivities about to become top of our list of priorities we have a selection of gift tags and place cards perfect not only for a winter wedding but also for that winter/christmas dinner party.......there will be a link to the shop through the web site but in the meantime you can click here: studio snippets for a sneak peak or little purchase.....

Just wanted to inform you that our prices will be slightly increasing from Sunday 1st November 2009. We have clients, who are getting married next year, who have placed orders already so that they can take advantage of this years prices. We are able to do this if deposits are paid and funds cleared by 31st October 2009. You may not wish to receive your stationery until a more convenient time next year and we will store your order away until that point. If anyone would like to further discuss any of the above then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01642 491087 and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. We have managed to hold our prices for the last two years but now are having to react to the increase of card stock and ink from our suppliers.
...where does the time go? It has been two weeks since my last posting as. Life would be so much easier if I had 40 hours in a working day. Busy as usual, I am currently finalising the selections for the new designs and working on some new colours for the current collections ready for their introduction to the web site from November 1st. So I thought you may like to take a little peak at new colours, soon to be introduced, from the Cartmel Collection. Samples will be available from the first week in November... must dash there's 26 sample packs waiting to be collated!!...
