Happy World Stationery Day!

Hi everyone.¬†It’s World Stationery Day! As a child I loved notebooks, matching pencils, little cute erasers. In the 1980s I had adorable ‘Bobby & Kate’ stationery from Tokyo, awesome rainbow & unicorn goodies too.

As an adult I visited Tokyo and it’s a magical, wonderland of cute & quirkiness & stationery heaven. Today I never thought I’d be designing my own stationery! It’s a dream come true! So little did I know back then that I was researching for my future job!

'Easter Bunnies' A5 Notebook by Dreaming on a Star

‘Easter Bunnies’ A5 Notebook by Dreaming on a Star

If you have been following my design career, you may recognise the above bunny print. I designed it a few years ago but I am very fond of it and turned it into a notebook.
It’s¬†professionally printed by a third-party printing company¬†and is printed on both sides in brilliant full colour with a smooth finish. I was so delighted to get these professionally printed and I¬†designed the little matching cards that can be used as bookmarks!

This pattern is also a few years old. I entered a design competition and came up with a Carousel Horse theme. Have a look here at how I came up with the idea. I made a repeating pattern of the design and¬†always liked the magical quality of it. People seem to like it too as it’s a best-seller for me.

March with Dreaming on a Star

Hi everyone. March has been a bit quiet at Dreaming on a Star. I had a horrible, stinky flu that lasted for two weeks, then I got a chest infection.

Printable Recipe Cards and Organisation!

Hi everyone. I’ve been organising my life recently! Maybe it’s the start of a New Year, but I want to streamline my life! I’ve been collecting recipes for years – torn out of magazines, scribbled down from TV programmes, tips and recipes from friends and lots of recipe books. The problem is they’re on scraps of paper, here and there.

I’m a fussy fusspot. I’ve been searching for the perfect book to house my recipes. I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I went for a plain hardback book from Paperchase – that way I could customize it with my own designs!

Recipe Book customised by Dreaming on a Star

Recipe Book

I haven’t finished designing the cover. I made a little typographic doodle and cut it out and stuck it on the cover. I will probably change it. My recipe book is a work in progress, because I am only storing recipes that have been tried out and I actually like. So it will be a while until the book is filled. Read more…

New Dreaming on a Star Stationery!

On 01, Sep 2013 | No Comments | In crafts, etsy, my work, shop, stationery | By Tina

Hi everyone. As you may know, one of my dreams is to have my own stationery range. I have my own Printables shop on Etsy, where I sell some printable notelets (amongst other things).

However, last week I made little notelets boxes for these notelets, and it really started to feel like proper stationery!
