Shaun & Mandy - Made To Order - Hot Pink and Silver Wedding Stationery

I've already blogged about these gorgeous Wedding Invitations over at my Wedding Blog by I just had to share them on here....

I was asked to make the Wedding Invites using Hot Pink Ribbon and printed insert and silver Foil Decoration to the card. We thought that Hot Pink foil may be a little overpowering.

As a special gift, I invested in 20 bespoke Keepsake boxes which not only make it a pleasure handing them over, but personalised and with matching ribbon can be used as a keepsake box to be used afterwards to keep the Bride and Grooms cards and memories in. I also offer them for sale to Brides who have bought their stationery elsewhere.

I made a matching Silver Foiled tag and the Hot Pink Ribbon just make the box look fantastic. The Bride and Groom seem to like it too.

I was also asked to make little cards for this wedding order, asking the the nicest possible way for money instead of gifts....this is a difficult one for newly weds today, but with an increasing number of people setting up home before they get married, I think people are no longer offended by this and lets face it, it relieves guests from having to come up with something special.

Gone are the days of 25 sets of bathroom scales, 6 toasters and 3 kettles.

Made-To-Order, personalised, foiled, Wedding Invitations.

One thing we are proud of at Inspired by Script, is the ability to come up with new and fresh ideas, based around what the client wants.
These cards started out as the 'Simply Stylish' design. but the customer wanted it 'Foiled' and with a Hot Pink, organza ribbon.

I had already done a similar design for Hannah and Robert but without the ribbon and in a different format. Because each Bride and Groom is unique it's nice to be able to work with them to create something that fits their personalities and no two designs work out exactly the same, so they have something that is not only unique but very personal and it's nice that they feel a very big part of that.

I have been using 2mm, satin ribbon, but I've found that keeping them tied tight has become too much of a problem and so I've switched to Organza ribbon and I think it looks fantastic!

The outside of the card is foiled with the Bride and Grooms name in Silver and the insert is printed in hot pink to match the ribbon. The cards measure 15cm square which gives them an overall more elegant look.

The price of these cards including envelopes are on special offer at the moment and are £3 each on orders taken before the end of September.

A Personalised Birthday Card Using Cut Letters and Foiled Print

It's some time now since I bought my Foil Machine and Plotter and I must admit that it's taking some time to get to grips with the plotter....but I'm a winner not a quitter and quitters never win.

The programme has a language of it's own and they don't come with a user manual. I think they expect anyone who uses one of these to be 'In The Know' so to it's been a steep learning curve, but fun along the way.

It's my Sister-In-Laws Birthday on Monday and I decided to try and excel myself and use both the Foiler and the Cutter in one design.... I just didn't think it would take me a day to create it lol.

First the foiling way printed in a gorgeous hot pink and then the cut lettering was done making sure that the letters were cut within the already printed design....a lot of mistakes and trials to get this far :o)

The letters will come in handy as next year I'll just glue the cut ones onto a piece of card....well it's a thought! The name came out in one piece as I made sure that each of the letters was connected to the ones either side.

I then trimmed away the bottom edge of the card and inserted a beautiful purple to set off the lettering. I just love the shadows made by cut letters don't you?

All in all, I'm over the moon with the results, but unless someone wants to pay me a days work or I get pretty much faster at these I will not be offering them for sale at the Inspired by Script studio or on the website.

They are however stunning and if you are on my birthday list, I may very well repeat these cards for my friends....time permitting of course :o)

A Personalised Framed Gift and Card to Welcome a New Arrival

Everyone loves to welcome new arrivals. This framed personalised poster and card were done for my Daughter-In-Laws, sister-in-law's first baby....if that makes any sense.

Created in beautiful bright pinks as a lasting reminder of the special day. The framed piece is a print which is personalised with the babys name, date of birth, weight and time and the decoration of tumbling stars is also added on as extra. The whole thing mounted and framed and a personalised card makes a unique and very personal gift for the new arrival.

For further information on these or any other items on this blog, email me at or call into the studio in Northallerton if you can. We love seeing people :o)

Personalised New Baby Card

It's always lovely to welcome a new baby into the family and this card was made for a close family friend...

It was a chance to get the foiler out and produce something personalised and unique. Something to treasure and mark this special occasion.

Along with this I am making another gift, a BABY BIRTH POSTER of which I have done loads of now and I'm sure regular readers get sick of seeing on my blog.

All personalised, foiled cards can be made to order and make great cards for any special event.

I've taken delivery of another 100 egg cups, to be made into Wedding Favours, another creative idea that came about as a customer request.


I'll keep you posted when they are finished.

Personalised Labels for Crafters - FREE P&P!

It always surprises me how much effort crafters put into their products, but then send them out to the purchaser without so much as an Invoice or Label stating who and where the maker can be found once they are pleased with their purchase.
So, I've decided to offer my services as a Calligrapher and create some Personalised Labels which can be bought in quantities of as little as 1 sheet. Each sheet contains 21 labels each measuring 63.5mm x 38mm

Each Label will be designed especially for you

and you can use them in any creative way you choose.

The wording is entirely up to you...

I will write and add any details specific to your needs

The samples below are just some of the design ideas to show you examples of what is possible. Not a good picture as it's a scan, but I can send you a sample if you request one.

I suggest:

One line of text:

E.g. Hand Made By, Created with love by,

Made especially by, or even Thank you for buying from)

Then your name or business name:

Then up to 3 lines of type:

Perhaps Address, Website and Phone number

The labels can be used as return address labels, jar labels or they look super when simply stuck to a folded piece of paper or card or on a luggage label.

I'm sure you can come up with many more creative ways to use your stickers....however you use them, you can be guaranteed I will make them especially for you and as they are done in Calligraphy, they will add to the 'Hand Made' feel.

I'm wanting to offer these as a service to other Crafters... so I'm not in it to make a fortune (as any crafter knows....chance would be a fine thing!) The cost of the Labels will be £1 a sheet including FREE P&P......that's £1 per 21 labels....less than 5p each. I will put them in my Etsy and Folksy Shop very soon, but in the meantime if you are interested, as always just email me:

In what inventive ways have you used stickers?

Wedding Seating Plan for Claire and John

All my clients and customers are special, but this Bride must take the award of EXTRA special.
Claire came to see me about 4 weeks ago for her Hand Lettered Place Cards and then returned for her seating plan. Why the EXTRA Special Bride Award? Because she was to have a serious heart operation a week and a half before her wedding for 2 holes in the heart, undiagnosed since birth! The operation couldn't wait, but as the wedding had been organised and paid for she was determined to go ahead.....and that she did on Saturday!

The colour theme was Royal Blue....the colour of Johns favourite, Sheffield Football club

It's always nice to go that extra mile for our clients and I added Butterflies (a symbol of transformation and free spirited-ness) to both the seating plan and the table names.

I only glued them on their bodies so that the wings were flying free. This made them look as if they had just landed. Aren't they gorgeous?

I'm sure you will join me in wishing them all the very best and a long and happy life together.
