Modern Geometrics

27th April 2018 OMG youre getting married

We love all the geometric designs that are always in fashion to some degree or another, but right now they’re just everywhere.  Honeycombs and hexagons have taken centre stage in the world of interior design and more recently for modern, urban style weddings. Here’s some of the inspirational shapes and decorations we’ve been loving.         We’ve got our own take on modern geo designs for one of our greeting card collections. Here’s a quick video peek at the whole collection – link below… GEOEMTRIC CARDS   A great general occasion card, or perhaps a thank you card or…

Spellbound in Keswick!

19th July 2017

Its’s been a busy old summer with lots of beautiful bespoke designs being created here in the HB studio. We’ve also heard so many amazing love stories, so we thought we’d share a few of them with you.

They had got engaged in Keswick, looking out over the vast Derwent Water lake towards the mountains, on ‘their’ now special bench!…

My Secret Pleasure…

18th November 2016

The post has just landed, an uninspiring heap that you’re rifling through, a hand full of the usual bills, bank statements and take away flyers, when you catch a glimpse of a thick luxurious envelope. ‘Is it my birthday?’ pops into your head, then vanishes as the reality of just another Wednesday dawns. So what is inside this rather lovely surprise,  a beautiful hand enticing mystery, who’s written to me? In an era of emails, texts, Facebook, Twitter and numerous other social media messaging services, a personally hand written letter has become a rare treat in our digital world. Could it…
