I began this year celebrating 2020... now just as I'm sure it is for many people it feels as though life has stopped! For myself, things aren't too different as I work alone in my country studio and have slowed down my pace of life. Instead of using the tumble dryer I use a washing line and rather than driving to the post office, I now walk my dog, Pickle. So far so good ... but I'll keep you posted!
Every since I was young I loved all things paper, pen and print! Collecting notebooks, cards and paper products wherever I went. Do you remember those rubbers that smelt like coca cola? I collected those too! Along with all sorts of notebooks and postcards.
Nowadays, I especially love rude and funny cards, or those with motivational or inspirational sayings on them. The perfect print to send to your friend or that special card to make someone smile. Fingers crossed you'll find what you are looking for in my shop!
Pretty packaging, lined envelopes, labels, stamps, stickers and wax seals have always my weakness. With the digital age, this meant that I could create and print on a much bigger scale and I am truly living a life that I love!
I love weddings! Every bride should have the perfect day! For me an invitation is so much more than the time and place, or the when and where’s! It’s the very first glimpse of the amazing wedding that you have spent months planning. Whether you have decided upon an extravagant and lavish affair or for an informal intimate gathering, my stationery can compliment the mood and style of your day. Whether you are tying the knot in a country house or in a tipi on a field drop me a message to find out what I can create for you!
After a decade of teaching English and Performing Arts I left to be a full time mum. The creative urge proved too much and I soon started a course in dip pen calligraphy which, in turn, led to the request for a table plan for a friend’s wedding.
That was my light bulb moment ...Ta dah!...and I have loved this creative process ever since. Any excuse to paint, draw and create rather than getting a 'proper' job!
Much of what I do is truly bespoke and client led. If you really want to impress your guests or have seen something of mine on social media but can't find it here, please message me. Many letterpress cards and foiled invitations, bespoke artwork and commissions aren't on here. With over ten years experience in Wedding Stationery I have box fulls of samples and images of my work to date.
If you can't find what you are looking for then please drop me a message! Most of my cards and prints can be personalised with your own message or inspirational saying or rude remark!
More listings are added daily and many designs come from customer requests! If you are looking for that perfect card, gift or sticker then please drop me a message as I'm here to help!
So, Hattie Boo Designs began life on my kitchen table, progressed to a tiny office and then grew into the paper and ribbon emporium that is my Studio today in Cheshire. The slogan on my van best sums up my business,
"To do great work you have to love what you do!"
