Progressive Greetings Feature

I mentioned in one of my previous posts that as a seriel cupcake cardie I was recenetly approached by the Progressive Greetings magazine to talk about the current vogue of the adorable yet humble cupcake and its huge impact on greeting card industry.
Well, arriving back in the office after a very constructive two weeks of designing new products, I was delighted to find that my article was featured on the front page of the trend spotlight in the October issue.
Also our very popular 'Pure Love' range of greeting cards has got a mention in the Innovation section of the magazine. I will be adding more designs to this range early next year, which was launched earlier on in the year with just wedding and anniverseries titles.

Silver Lining Christmas

For those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that lately we've been extremely busy with the mamoth task of trying to keep up with Christmas orders aswell as designing Valentines and Mothers Day 2011 ranges AND developing a new gift and accessories line (which we'll be launching early spring.)
You will be able to read more about the exciting gifts we're launching in the coming weeks on this blog, so watch this space!
Talking about 'space', that's one word that is constantly being used by our lovely retailers quite abundantly these days, as gift and card shops up and down the country are hard at work trying to make 'space' for their christmas stock and displays. With my digital camera in hand, I'll be checking out the latest shop displays in and around Leicestershire and will report back some of my favourite displays next month.
Last week I managed to do a photo shoot of our second Christmas Card range 'Silver Lining for Christmas' which is available to order now. The range consists of 8 festive designs created using organza fabrics, intricate silver hand stitch detailing, and sparkly diamantes & beads. What do you think of my christmas card display?
