show preparation

i've been so busy preparing for the show that i forgot to blog my creations, so warning, this post is picture heavy!! some of the cards i have recreated from those already on sale at oxford tattoo, so they may look familiar, but these are the ones that have been popular so far.

all the cards i have made are ready for personalisation and sentiments will be added on the day.

getting ready for manchester

i'm busy preparing for the manchester tattoo show and as it draws nearer, i'm getting more and more nervous. i've been busy making cards like a crazy person, and i'm getting there. this is the state of my studio at present, it doesn't matter how big my desk is, i still end up working in a tiny space right on the edge!!

i'll be personalising cards over the weekend too, so i'm open to special requests, no matter how wacky!!

my tattoo cards are available currently only at oxford tattoo, i have a good selection on show in the store, but if there's anything specific you would like, please contact me and i'm sure i'll be able to help!

i'll be back with more cards to show tomorrow.

if you've been following me on Facebook recently, you will know that i've been planning and scheming and after a small (and it was a very small amount) of deliberating i have decided to exhibit here:-

I will be trading as scrapsy@oxford tattoo and handing out flyers promoting the studio, as well as selling my own hand made tattoo inspired greetings cards. i'll be making cards at the show and taking special orders, so if you are after something specific, be sure to come by.

i'll also be taking orders for sculptures and will have some on display for inspiration. every one will be unique and personally designed, if you have an idea in mind, give me the basics and let my imagination take over, i guarantee you won't be disappointed!!

so, if you're in the area on 4/5 august, come and say hi and buy a card for someone special!

invitations, invitations and more invitations...

i've been tied up lately and don't really have much to show apart from these two special invitations, and they are both wedding related and at two ends of the spectrum. the first one is a golden wedding invitation. my parents have been married for 50 years in september and so we are having a party to celebrate.

i kept my granny's photo albums and found this wedding picture of my mum and dad with the bridesmaids, the one on the right is my aunty pat - my mum's sister (and i got an 'oh sarah, did you have to?') when i gave the invite to her!! 

the second invitation is for a work friend, lucy, who is getting married in august. i made 60 of these and have at least the same number of favours and order or service still to make. i'm pleased with how they turned out and lucy absolutely loves them (thank goodness!!).
