Popping my wedding invite cherry

I starting writing all this spiel, about the bride and groom, about what they'd envisaged... etc etc yadda yadda... but I thought you'd probably prefer me to cut to the chase and show you some lovely pics of my first wedding invite design. Here goes:

And before you ask: NO! I didn't hand cut each one! That would be a tad foolish, and my ricketty old fingers would probably never forgive me. They were lasercut... and a neat job they've done too!

The design features a couple of swallows (swallows had just arrived on their land - groom's suggestion), some bunting (well, a wedding isn't a wedding without bunting, right?), lovehearts (bien sur) and teepees (the wedding is going to be an incredible two-day festival on the land) and - again Doug's suggestion - a 'bum hill'. Yup, he called me and wanted a 'bum hill' which is a feature of the land. I knew *exactly* what he meant and popped a bum hill at the bottom. The paper colours were the bride and grooms choice, I like it. It's nice and earthy. They're earthy kinda people.

So there you have it. A lovely wedding invite for a lovely couple.
Have a GREAT wedding weekend Doug and Claire! xx

I will be adding bespoke wedding invitations, save-the-date, place names etc to my notonthehighstreet shop soon. I just have to sort out the details. If you're interested you can always email me (kyleighspapercuts [at] gmail [dot] com).

I look forward to designing many more personalised wedding invitations in the future : )

The boy saw the comet

I haven't blogged for ages... yeah sorry about that. Thing is, it's mighty tricky juggling a 6 month old baby, 2 teenagers and a business y'see. Excuses, excuses I know. So I haven't blogged for a while not because I haven't got anything to show you lovely people, but because I've been busy with commissions. Honest guv.

So this one was from May. And a nice one to boot.

I know it was a wedding present, and they were really happy with it. But I don't know what the quote is from. Does anyone know?
I like the stars, moon, clouds and comet. I like doing unusual embellishments. Not that there's anything bad about wanting hearts and swirls, but I like the challenge of a new embellishments. How can I make people choose more varied embellishments? I dunno... maybe everyone just loves hearts and swirls!

Here it is framed. It's a large size papercut so in a nice large frame. One of these days I really want to try my hand at a really big papercut. Cut from A2 or even A1. I'm gonna need a bigger cutting mat...

This commission was ordered the usual way, through the lovely peeps at notonthehighstreet. If you want to order one, you'll get special brownie points for unusual embellishments! Meaning I'll hand cut it with EVEN MORE LOVE than I usually do. And that's, like LOADS. So what are you waiting for?

Don't forget you can follow me on twitter - I generally tweet a pic of each commission *just* as I've finished cutting it. www.twitter.com/kyleigh

Adios amigos! Happy Thursday night!
