Stationery style/what you can offer?
Beautiful bespoke handmade stationery using top quality card, gorgeous ribbons, A grade rhinestone/diamante embellishments and pretty flowers.

Where does your inspiration come from? 
Often for the person I’m designing for, or from something such as Mhendi, hence my new range!
Any tips on wording etiquette? 
I feel that your wording should reflect the style of your celebration e.g. for a very formal wedding then formal wording would be appropriate, or for a more relaxed celebration then less formal wording would be appropriate.

Any tips to those thinking of DIY stationery? 
Buy the best quality you can afford – I only use top quality materials because you want everyone you are inviting to be aware that something as special as your commitment to each other is being taken seriously
How far in advance should you order? 
As soon as you know the date and the venue it’s a good idea to book your stationer. It depends on how intricate your design is as to how long it will take to make up each part of  your order and the stationer will need to allocate enough time in the work schedule for each part of the order.

Trends for 2011?
Vintage is still popular and I’ve been working with quite a lot of strong colours too.
