Wedding Stationery Facebook Page

Late last week, I managed to get my Facebook page together for my Wedding Stationery business.  At the moment, it's only got a post about my own Wedding Stationery that I made, but hopefully that will be changing as time goes by as I make samples and receive orders from Brides to be.

If you care to have a look, pop over to www.facebook.com/hautocraft and give me a "like".  If you'd like to share the page, please do :)

This blog will still remain cardmaking.  I don't think I can run both on here as it takes so much time anyway to manage social media, that I will probably leave the Wedding Stationery to the Facebook page and cardmaking here.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Personalised Pet Emergency Card

Morning,

I love to make cards and Riley is very important to me.  I don't know what I'd do if I ever "lost" him.  With this in mind, I have started to make some Personalised Pet Emergency Cards so that you, as a dog owner (or cat, rabbit or any other pet) will get your pet cared for should anything happen!

Paramedics and other medical services know that if you look at a person's mobile, you can see ICE (In Case of Emergency) contact details.  My Pet Emergency Cards are on a similar basis.  Should anything happen, in your wallet/purse/handbag/glove box etc, keep one of my Personalised Pet Emergency Cards so that your pet can be cared for.

Personalised Pet Emergency Cards

On the front, these can be personalised for the type of pet you have or how many you have.





On the reverse are all your contact details and information needed for your pet(s) :)

If you'd like to order or enquire about these, please contact me :)

Have a great day,

Alex

Pet Christmas Cards

Morning all,

Today's post is about Christmas!  I know it's only August, but you can never be too organised :)

Anyway, I'm sharing my passion of two things: cardmaking and my love of Riley :)  He's my little furry buddy and he's very much part of the family, he IS family.

With this in mind, I decided to make a few Pet Christmas cards.  These can be made to be sent from the dog, or I can personalise these to be sent to your dog.  Any personalisation can be done and I can make bespoke ones to your needs too.  I am able to make some lovely Shih Tzu cards, by the way :)

Hope you like:

Pet Services


Cards to your dog walker, dog sitter or dog groomer :)  Or any other service you can think of!

Pet Family


Cards for Mummy, Daddy and Special Friend :)

These cards have an aperture window on the front, with a stamped image of a dog inside wearing a Christmas hat.  These particular dogs can be coloured in to suit your specific requirements.

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Margaret

Today's special day is a lady who loves her new camper van :)  It's a beauty, just love the colours inside so have matched the card to her interiors, lol.

Hope you like the card.


Have a great day,

Happy Birthday Mum

I recently made a special card for my Mum's birthday.  I used an old Stampin' Up! stamp set as I just love "A Rose Is A Rose", especially because it can be used for quite a few different occasions and in so many colour combos :)  This card uses a whole sheet of A4 cardstock.

Hope you enjoy the pictures below:

My Mum loves shrimps and bananas, so here's a little something for her sweet tooth, lol.


Enjoy your day.

Pet Thank You Card

Hope you've all had a good weekend.  The weather here has been glorious :)  We combined our weekend with camping and shih tzus, what a fun time we had! lol.

So, here's the card I gave to the lady who organised the shih tzu event.  Hope she will treasure the card :)

Bye for now,

Thank You Mandy

Hi there,

Today is a very special day... we're off to a place to meet up with lots of other shih tzus!  I'm not sure what we'll make of it, whether Riley will have a go at everything, but we're definitely looking forward to a fun day ahead!

I have made a Thank You card for the lady that has helped to organise this event.  She has two gorgeous shih tzus, Coco and Hugo, so I made a card to resemble her cuties.

Come back tomorrow to see the card...

Here's a sneak peek:


Hope you have a great weekend.  Until tomorrow...
