Hi, I’m Tallie! I’m the chief crafter here at Paper, Ink and Colour (previously talliescorner.co.uk). I’m based in the UK, work full time during the week and try and fit in the crafting time when I can!
This site is really a collection of my papercrafting and cardmaking exploits. I have always made my own Christmas cards, but since around the winter of 2017 when I stumbled across Kristina Werner and I discovered all that is Lawn Fawn, I have been regularly posting tutorials for my cards. I am thankful to be on a couple of design teams for stamping companies and shops so you’ll find my weekly posts for inspiration on using some of their products.
I do not sell my cards online. I either give them away to friends and family (when I remember to actually send them off!) or I have a box on my desk at work where I ‘sell’ the cards and donate the proceeds to charity.
My style is usually more on the Clean and Simple (CAS) side of the design. I love bright, bold colours and any cute critters. My favourite colouring mediums are my Copic alcohol markers, my watercolour palette and all the Distress Inks, though I’ll occasionally step outside my comfort zone!
Design Team Work
I am currently on the Design Teams of:
- Seven Hills Crafts (posting every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month)
- Heffy Doodle (posting every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month)
I’m happy to consider any Design Team or guest posts as long as it fits in with my style. Please get in touch with me if you are interested.
The things I make and share have been purchased by myself, won through entering various crafting competitions or sent on for me to make projects with. Some affiliate links may be used in crafting supply lists, where possible, and are provided at no cost to you. I usually link to Seven Hills Crafts or Heffy Doodle, my favourite UK-based crafting suppliers, Simon Says Stamp based in the USA or Amazon for more general products. All recommendations and links are provided because I have used and loved the product; I will not review or link something I don’t like. All
opinions are my own, as are my mistakes.
