Fruity Notecards And 'Peas And Quiet' For Handmade Monday


Hi all, i hope you've had a fabulous first week of summer! I've a few seasonal makes to show you today.

*pssst... I've also been working on some not so seasonal designs behind the scenes... i'm trying to be a good organised crafter this year! ;)


Peas And Quiet Wall Hanger Plaque


Last year i made a 'Peas And Quiet' hanging heart with my peas and pea shoots fabric... it seemed to go down well so this year i've made a wall hanger.



It's available to buy now from my website, Etsy shop and other outlets priced £9.50 and completes my new range of summery signs (which all offer fun ways to bring the spirit of summer time into your home!)





Fruity Notecards


I've also begun listing some of my new summery notecards for sale in my Print And Paper shop on Etsy (and on my website too).

The first is this one featuring a freshly made batch of some of my very own strawberry jam.


This image of simple summertime fun always makes me smile, i hope it makes you smile too :)





As with all my cards its priced £1.99 but discounts are also available for multiple purchases.

The other new arrival is also summer fruit themed - rosy gooseberries ripening in the sun are the star of the show this time. Don't they look cheery :)



This card is also available priced £1.99 from my website and Print and Paper shop on Etsy.

Any other jam makers out there getting excited about summer fruits ripening? What's your favourite to make?!

As always, i look forward to finding out what you've all been up to this week over at Handmade Harbour... see you there! x

  7. Your pea shoots fabric is lovely and delicate. I'm growing peas at the moment, partly for Spock and Bertie (the budgies) they love them!

  9. Love your jam and gooseberry cards.

    Sadly the wild blackberry bushes near my home seem to be dying off so there won't be much fruit around here this year.
