Upcoming Workshops

I have a new workshop available in August for our Large Paper Flowers at The Vintage Sewing Bunny in St.Annes. 

Some of you may have seen these in the window display in The Vintage Sewing Bunny over Easter.

The Workshop runs on Saturday 19th August 10-12pm and you will learn to create 5 large paper flowers, perfect for creating a flower backdrop or even just a few for a display for your weddings!

Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment!

Honolulu Styled Photoshoot


Last month we were privileged to be part of a styled shoot with Epic Elopement and TH & TH

We styled the bride and groom with flowers made from maps of Hawii which made it all the way there and back in one piece!

Paper Flowers are perfect for Elopements or Weddings abroad as they travel well and can be an easy alternative to finding flowers when you arrive at your wedding destination. 

Read more about the shoot and eloping over on Epic Elopement's blog

Meet the C&E Team

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I have finally got round to writing another blog post and I thought it would be nice to introduce the C&E Team!

C&E Designs stands for Chris and Emma (or Mr and Mrs C&E Designs). I (Emma) own and run the business creating handmade paper craft items from recycled books and patterned paper. You may also see Chris at some of the craft fairs lending a helping hand!

Me and Mr C&E Designs on our Wedding Day last July!

We both grew up in Lytham on the Fylde Coast and still live locally. Both Chris and myself have creative backgrounds, I am a Photography tutor and Photographer and Chris is trained as a Graphic Designer. These skills lend themselves very well to C&E Designs and allow me to be creative and unique with our designs. 

There are also two other smaller members of the C&E Team, Pippin and Luna who like to help me when I am being creative by sitting in my typewriter case or stealing paper. Luna is the newest addition to the team only being 10 weeks old.
