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

    Absolutely beautiful cards! I love them. You are very talented. One of the things I like about your cards is the clean, simple designs. They are very classy!

    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

      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
