So that you can soothe your soul with creativity!

Behind the Scenes!

I live in a little Yorkshire village​ with my husband and my gorgeous but incredibly-cheeky rough collie, Noah.

I started my drawing career quite technically and spent a decade drawing maps and plans - and then started working from home in 2008 as an interior and garden designer after a career change due to a long spell of illness with ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).

From there, I started textile and surface pattern design, transitioning through artworks and designs and then that's when I got a Cricut Maker and started learning about papercutting...

I fell in love with it all - I took courses to learn how to create SVG designs professionally and decided to start specializing in my own range of hand-crafted SVG cut files for papercutting and other crafts.

Creativity is Vital

I love to create SVG files from my drawings to help you make the most of your own creativity – because I know that crafting makes you feel better, it does me, too!

You will be able to use my SVG designs for personal or small-business commercial use...

But on physical products only, please, like cushions, clothing, bags, cards, paper-crafting, signs etc (no digital products or sharing).

You can use my SVG designs to cut paper, card, vinyl, HTV, stencils, even light woods should your machine have the capability.

Creating the Designs

I create my SVG files by taking my pen and paper drawings and converting them to a cutting-friendly format using Adobe Illustrator.

  • I want to make sure that the cutting lines are smooth and even.
  • I check that cut-outs are large enough to cut decently...
  • And that small details aren't too thin and delicate.
  • I make sure any layers work as intended and look good!

After I've created the design, I always cut it out on my Cricut Maker machine, usually in card or paper, just to make sure it cuts well with no apparent faults or difficulties...

So that you can be sure you're getting a design that's well-created and works well for your project.

I’m absolutely passionate about sharing my designs - because I know that it's fun to make things, it's rewarding to gift something beautiful that you've made and that makes someone's day...

And it’s vital for the emotional, mental, and physical health of us all to be able to connect with our personal creativity.

I hope that you'll stick around for a while and explore my site with me. Here are a few links that I think you might find helpful...
