I've featured on an Etsy treasury for the first time!

My 'I've got sunshine on a cloudy day' papercut has been featured on an Etsy treasury 'Alphabetcetera' by Elwyn Estlin (Etsy shop here) 'Beautiful typography for the the type lover in us all'.

I'm a sucker for anything typographical so this treasury has many hidden gems I'm completely coveting. Especially an ampersand necklace... come to mamma...

For ruby wedding anniversary...

40 years of happy marriage has to be celebrated. And it's not just
anyone, it's for my wonderful in-laws... Hope they'll like it. It's
'their song'.

I love this site, and I've been invited to join!

One of my favourite sites to buy something special and unusual for a present has invited me to sell on their site, and to say I'm excited is a bit of an understatement. get 500 applications from sellers a month and accept only 10%. So I'm completely made up.

I guess I'm gonna need a bigger scalpel...

Vote for me!

Jess at funkyjunkdesigns has added to her 'shop of the week' poll.

VOTE NOW - it only take a second, honestly.

What can make me feel this way?

This will be the first Papercut in my etsy shop available not framed,
so it's much cheaper. In a lovely sunshiny yellow. Spring is here!
Happy weekend!

Etsy shop now open for business!

So I (finally) managed to find out about DHL shipping costs, photograph the finished framed papercuts and list them on Etsy. And it feels good!

I plan to ship worldwide - so no limitations which is ace. Etsy is currently only in dollars, but they insist a currency converter is a-coming.

My teenage daughter Kerys was in a bit of a panic what to get her friend Jasmine for her birthday so I offered a little papercut/collage, which went down a treat (along with a big cookie and some bath bombs...)

Here we go

Welcome to Kyleigh's Papercuts new blog.

Here I hope to showcase my new papercuts, plus work in progress, along with any other musings I might have. Lovely sites I've found, beautiful photography and stuff. You know the stuff.

I'm pretty new to papercut art - I'm a digital designer with a love of typography and a head full of lyrics. So here's the story... I wanted something special to give my husband for Valentines (although I really should have thought of it for our first anniversary which is paper DOH! anyhoo...) I was completely inspired by Julene's papercut art - she is one talented lady... I decided to try it for myself, with my style of things, 15 years of typography and graphic design. I do the designs in Adobe Illustrator, into InDesign and print veeeeerrrrry faintly onto recycled paper. Then the magic begins as I start to extract the design from the paper.

Et voila!

The lyrics on the first one I chose were from 'Forever my Friend' by Ray LaMontagne, it was our first dance at our wedding and is, and will always be 'our song' and very special to us.

I am in the process of setting up an Etsy shop where I'll be selling them, framed or unframed. Plus I am available to do commissions for any song that is dear to you.
