Finished this piece today, all hand cut by me! Will turn it into cards this evening, but I had fun cutting it out myself. Plenty of practice needed, but it was an achievement, and feel satisfied. I won't be doing many cut by hand as I just don't have the time and even though the majority of my designs are cut by machine, digital and laser, they still hold the magical sparkle and fascination papercutting gives. I want to dedicate my time to each design, after all i'm a graphic designer foremost and where my passion is for typography, papercutting is just my means of expressing it onto paper instead of printing.

Birthday wishes, 60th, 90th, Mum and Grandma cards are just a few designs I've been asked to create over the past couple of months, slowly getting a collection together. Here's one design in progress, and yes I'm cutting it out by hand first to see what it looks like and to polish my hand cutting skills!

I'm frantically finishing off the first set of wedding commissions. I've some new designs to show and these will become available to buy soon in my shop. This design follows on from my secret garden theme from the other year.
