Jungle train birthday card

Lovely to see how manufacturer Paper Magic have turned my jungle train design into a die cut card. I love the addition of flitter, pom poms and add ons!

Craftseller feature

I've been involved in some very exciting Craftseller features recently. Here's the first, an article on how to make my bunting plate. This issue also includes a book of assorted tags I designed. And my photo made it onto the contributor page! What an honour, thank you Craftseller! 

And here's a few little spot illustrations I created for the same issue.

New work in Craftseller Magazine

Two posts in one day? Wow! Those lovely people at Craftseller have sent me a copy of the Oriental Garden paper book I'd created for them last November! It's packed full of oriental themed patterned papers.

Summer wedding

As I mentioned in my last post, I got married on a beautiful day last summer. I spent most of last winter, spring and summer preparing for it so I thought I'd share a few photos with you! I'm pretty proud of how it all turned out. Well worth all those hours designing stationery, hunting down props, making jam, cutting, gluing and sticking! We had some fantastic help too from some very talented friends and family. And the super talented photographer, Sam Docker.

New look, new name!

Hi! It's been rather a long time (sorry!) since I last blogged. So I thought it was time for a blog make over. I got married last year and faced the difficult, work related decision that so many of us designers have to change surname or not? After much deliberation I had to concede that although a little funny (especially considering I'm on the petite side) it just sounds better. So this is me, Sally Mountain! I hope you like my blog's new look!

So long summer, can't wait to see you again soon!

Oh no! When did October creep up on us?  Well, before the summer seems too far in the dim and distant past, I thought I'd reminisce over some of my summer snaps (cue blurry, wobbly fade out)

My new cake stand...

Love Baking asked me to design a vintage garden party theme cake stand for their magazine. And here it is! Since it was a bank holiday weekend, I thought it only right I should make some cup cakes too. Yum yum yum.
