All Things Japaneese

I've started work on a new range of greeting cards which I shall be launching in spring 2009. Here is a sneaky peak of some of the fabrics that will be involved in the making of this range. On my recent travels to Asia, I fell in love with the adorable colours of these richly textured silk fabrics known as 'Jamawaar Silk'.
The initial idea is circling around a Japaneese theme......thats all I'm saying for now! I shall update you with sketches and prototypes as work progresses on this range. Watch this space!

Photo Shoot

For the past two weeks I've been busy designing and creating a beautiful range of Photo Albums to compliment the greeting card ranges that we already produce. I've introduced three different sizes small, medium and large made with 42 acid-free pages, interleaved with fine tissue and finally presented in a clear plastic case. I've been experimenting with a variety of different organza and chiffon ribbons and embellishments to give the photo albums that final touch and I'm really pleased with the results.

Lucky for me the weather has been on our side so I grabbed the oppurtunity and managed to fit in a (very rushed) photo shoot. Here are the results.....let me know your thoughts!
