I am not very good at this blogging lark, so please bear with me. Once I get around to posting it is plain sailing. It is the getting around to it that is the problem!
This being my first post, I shall begin by telling you a little bit about myself - that way the posts can only get more interesting! I am a single mum in my mid 40's. I have two teenage daughters who bring to my life a mixture of immense enjoyment and incredible frustration. Thankfully the former usually outweighs the latter!
I live in Sheffield, grew up in north London and spent 14 years in Boston (USA) somewhere in the middle.
Claryce Design began as a hobby. I started making handmade gift cards using the wonderful assortment of papers, cards, rubber stamps and embellishments available through the company Stampin' Up. I then started looking for images, rather than stamps to use on the fronts of my cards. Then, quite by chance one day I discovered a software on my laptop that would allow me to create collage type images myself. The rest is history....
I now have a comprehensive collection of digital vintage ephemera that I add to constantly. Vintage postcards, letters, illustrations etc get mixed and matched to create my images. These images are then printed onto card and handfinished into gift tags, postcards and wedding stationery.
I love my work. I enjoy creating the vintage images, making them into stationery, photographing them and then sharing them with you.
Check back in soon and fingers crossed you may find a new posting :)
