Air Balloon themed cupcakes

Recently I amended one of my Easter basket cupcake wrap designs for a customer as she wanted to make an air balloon themed party.  I replaced the Easter wording on the basket wraps with a plain pink banner so she was able to write each cupcake flavouring – plain, walnut or peanut butter chip. Her sister made the balloons on coffee stirrers to stick in each one. She also added a photo of the couple inside one of the balloons. These would also look great for a children’s party, you could add photographs and all sorts of details. air balloon cupcakes

St Patrick’s Day Free Printables!

I designed these free printable Irish themed party decorations some time ago for Karen from The Graphics Fairy website using some gorgeous vintage graphics from her site (The old map of Ireland is my favourite) and combined them with lots of layers and textures in photoshop. You can print them out, combine them and have fun crafting new things with them.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I’m Back!

Sorry its been so long, I can’t believe it was Christmas the last time I updated my blog. (It didn’t seem that long ago!?)

I have been busy designing a huge range of greetings cards over the past few months for my notonthehighstreet shop. I am hoping to extend the range into mugs and hopefully screen prints in the near future!

Heres a little preview of my Mothers Day card designs;

Woo hoo! my Royal Baby cupcake toppers have just been featured in and in their weird and wacky Royal Baby Souvenirs section!
My favourite pick from the collection has got to be the collectable porcelain doll of Prince William at one year old (although he might just look like this after some sleepless nights with a newborn!)
