Etsy Shop: shoutjohncards

Hey everyone :)

I've been trying to think - when I decided that I wanted to open my little Etsy shop and I really can't remember - is that a bad thing?! I remember I was looking for cards for a birthday and some Christmas ones and I couldn't find any I liked and I thought to myself - why not just make them myself - and so I spent a good couple of months (before opening the shop) researching the most popular card sizes and companies that did those sizes - there are lots!

I then bought a new printer and different cards and envelopes ... then found out you could buy card pre-creased (thats with the fold down the middle already - I know mind blown!!) and then logo designing and then testing designs and spending ages and lots of ink - printing them to see what they looked like - "shoutjohncards" was born - an extension of shoutjohn (my blog).

Feel free to take a look:

There are only a few cards on there at the moment as I am splitting my time between full-time work / blogging / YouTube / card making and well life (you know housework, boyfriend, social life etc).

Let me know what you think in the comments below or if you have any tips those are always welcome :)

I Moved House!

Hey everyone :)

I've been absent on social media for a couple of months now - but I have a good reason! I have moved house! Yes I finally left my little 1 room and moved into a lovely 2 bed flat with Dave.

It's been a long process and lots of waiting to find out if we got the flat but all that paid off and we are now moved in. We've been there nearly 2 months.

So I have plans for a few posts that involve "house-ey" things so I am excited about that. We are just waiting on 1 more sofa being delivered and some artwork for the walls and then hopefully we will be finished decorating.

I'm also looking forward to getting a few Christmas posts written up :)
