What's Up Looney?

Mothers Day Card - Primrose in purple

Well what a month February has been! Valentines was exceptionally busy this year, and then I got quite ill which knocked me out for about a week. But I still manage to craft all your card orders on time (somehow!).

So what am I up to now that I’m fighting fit? Well, I’m currently working on mother’s day. I’m introducing more colours choices on some of the card designs, which will hopefully give you the chance to not only present your messages of love and support to your mum, but also maybe her favourite colour too.

Be My Valentine - With Single Red Rose

With Valentines fast approaching I thought I would write about some of the common symbols associated with love and affection. There are many reasons why these iconic symbols have been associated with St. Valentine’s Day and the expression of love

New Christmas Card Designs For 2013

Christmas Rose

Since September I’ve been busy in my spare time working on the new designs for Christmas 2013. As always there is the doodle/sketching stage and I found that this year I had loads of ideas, too many in fact, as I managed to fill up over 8 pages in my sketch book. So that’s next years covered too! After the sketching came the fun bit; crafting the cards, choosing the materials/embellishments, and making design tweaks if required. From the sample ones that I’d made, these are the ones I decided to add to the handmade luxury Christmas card range for 2013:

Traditional Wedding Anniversaries - Who doesn't love them?

Everlasting Silver - Handmade Anniversary Card

Who doesn’t love an anniversary? Especially the tradition of giving your loved one a gift or card that symbolises the strength and number of years you’ve been married? I personally prefer to stick with the traditional symbols as opposed to the modern list, as really who can get excited about white goods? Now I’m not saying white good aren’t useful, they are, but it’s not quite the same.

As with most traditions it has to have started somewhere? But where….to avoid giving you a full blown history, I’ll summarise. According to my extensive research this tradition dates back to Europe in the middle ages where...

Coming Soon - Personalised Photo Albums

Bespoke Wedding Album

I am very pleased to announce that I will soon be offering personalised photo albums to the Looney Lizard Creations family. My intention has always been that I would be adding additional handmade items to my range but due to the success of my personalised handmade luxury greeting card range, it’s taken a little longer than expected (OK quite a bit longer!).

What my customers are saying: Jan - May 2013

Yes, for those sharp eyed eagles who will have noticed that I havn't posted any customer comments I've received since April 2012 (my, my, time does fly). This isn't because I haven't received any, its simply that I've be so busy. No one said running a business on your own was easy (that I can vouch for) So rather than add them all, I thought I would start afresh from 2013. But as there are quite a lot and we are already in June (yikes!) I am just going to post a few and then I promise that I will start to update these more regularly

Hot Off the Crafting Mat: Cherished boy and girl

pink feet new baby card

I have currently been working on the new baby section since the release of ‘precious’ and have now added another new design called ‘cherished’. This new handmade card design is available in blue or pink and would also be suitable for twins (I will also be able to provide this design in both pink and blue for mixed twins, if contacted).

I love this new design, I’m so pleased I got to use the new patterned board that I’d purchased. I have stashes of new mats and embellishments that I’ve purchased and not yet had the time to do anything with!
