About

Hello,thanks for visiting ! I am a mad keen card maker who has made one or two forays into scrapbooking, but I always come back to cards. I am passionate about papers, and all the cards I make revolve around the paper I am using.  I also stamp and emboss, but really only to enhance the paper.I share my home with a husband and two young men ( my sons ) who are very patient with me when tea is running late because I have lost track of time when I am creating! I will endevour to bring you lots of new ideas with papers that are readily available. There is nothing worse than seeing a card you like and then finding you can’t source the items used. If you want to contact me  e-mail me at helen@helenscarddesigns.com Since starting my blog last July I have realised one of my goals which is to have my own craft room,now I would like to set another, and that is to receive more comments, so please feel free to express yourself! what you like – don’t like , let me know and I will try to showcase more ideas that you all want to see. If you have your own blog leave details so that I can return the favour and visit you !

To purchase my cards please drop me an e-mail at helen@helenscarddesigns.com

  4. Thank you, Helen, for sharing your creations. I’m so glad I found your blog, as your style of crafting is beautiful and inspiring. I’m addicted to Kaisercraft paper!

    1. you are more than welcome! I love papers of any kind, but particularly Kaisercraft – love the fact they have new releases every month!

  5. Hi Helen, love your cards,especially the ones with not too much bling. What part of Sth. Australia are you in? I was born and raised in Croydon,Adelaide came to the UK when I was 23 in 1970 intending to stay 3 years but still here!! My sister Lee lived in Victor Harbor, and where we would have lived if we had come back, my sister sadly passed away 2 years ago,so no reason to come back now. I am always after more men’s card ideas, I think they are the hardest to think of. I have joined your blog for ideas and news of the old country. Cheers and thankyou, Marilyn X

    1. Hi Marilyn, lovely to hear from you.I live in Adelaide, so your old stomping ground!Victor harbor is a beautiful spot,so sorry to hear about your sister. you could always come back for a visit though. You would notice some changes from 1970!Mens cards are difficult to do – you can always pop a flower/butterfly on a female card, but there is no one item that all men relate to and I think thats the problem!Keep in touch, and I will work on some new mens cards for you! love Helen x
