Yesterday was an absolute joy. After weeks of preparations, creating new designs and perfecting the show room we finally reached 1st February. The day in the diary when Rachael Connerton was coming!!! And it was an absolute dream…we had ‘such fun’ in the words of Miranda!

Rachael’s work has always been an inspiration and from our first telephone chat years ago we just seemed to connect. Her work is a ‘mystical mystery’, how does she make something look so incredibly beautiful? Well after a day with Rachael I feel as though I have been left under a spell, I am no wiser how she does it. Sorry I can’t pass on any hot tips for creating the perfect photo. Its just pure talent with a natural sense of light, its nothing to do with a big flashy camera. To be honest I think she’d create just the same stunning images with an old cheap Instamatic!

Yesterday was a whirl of creative inspiration. The studio went from tidy to chaos in a matter of minutes, well seconds, as Rachael excitedly started shooting. There were the new wedding stationery collections.. more of those later, cake toppers, paper garlands, pieces of artwork and new greetings cards including these, our gorg new Valentines cards!

You & Me

I did happen to anxiously mention to Rachael that as Valentines is just around the corner if possible we’d love the photos quite quickly and OMG this morning I woke to find a message in my inbox with an enticing link to Dropbox. Bless, Rachael had edited last night!!! Can you believe it? So after dog walks and making a cup of tea I could sit down and finally opened the file and joy, these beautiful photos were waiting for me!

Always

And there’s more!

If you’re a bird…

A Scandi inspired Valentines card perfect for those lovebirds who share a passion for quotes and films, especially ‘The Notebook’! OK so we love a chick flick here at HB so we had to use this beautiful quote from the film.

If you’ve been searching for the most perfectly unique and ultimately intimate Valentines card that sends a subtle message of love, that will be remembered and treasured then look no further!  This card is designed with a red laser cut heart charm with two little lovebirds that hang above the quote. It’s not just a card for Valentine’s day, take the hanging laser cut charm off the card and you have a keepsake forever!

Lovebirds

Finally for those lovebirds, the complete romantics, we have a personalised Valentines card! Using the same laser cut heart charm we were inspired by the old fashioned love token, when a couple in love would carve their initials into a tree to show their true love!

You can do it too on a Valentines Card, just let us know the initials you’d like to add and we will create and print the card just for you!
