So a couple of weeks ago I posted on Instagram, a pretty big hint that I was working on something exciting, remember this…?
Well, the first pic was a tiny part of our production line for some very special kits, and the second shows the first pallet of stock going on to that huge lorry outside Hurley HQ, all ready to be delivered to one of my favourite retailers – Paperchase!!!
A few months back I was having a quiet afternoon of designing when my email bing-bonged (as it does about every 10 seconds! lol) I peeked up from my work to see an email from Paperchase, and not just any email, an email from a buyer, who said she loved my work and would I put some things together for them at Paperchase (I deleted my first response that said ‘ARE YOU SERIOUS?! YES!’ and typed a much more professional one…) the next couple of weeks I worked on putting together some pre-production samples as they were keen to get a Christmas product in the stores, we came up with this ‘Make your own Christmas Card kit’ from my Tinseltown Christmas range, which, as you can see, can now be found online at Paperchase (right here in fact!)
as well as in selected Paperchase stores nationwide…
Here is Carol from my Design Team with the first store sighting in Aberdeen (she selflessly (ha!) volunteered to tour the Paperchase’s of Scotland on the hunt for them!) If you spot them in store I’d love to see your pics (you can send me the links, share them over on my Facebook page or tag them with #paperchase #sarahhurley on Instagram / Twitter) if enough of you send them in I may just pick one of them out before Christmas to win a prize (it’ll be good, promise!)
This has been an absolute dream come true for me, this was one of those things in the 5 year plan, never did I expect it to happen so soon, I would never have had the courage to approach them just yet, so I’m very very glad they found me! I’ll be keeping you posted with updates :o)
Thank you for dropping by today and sharing my excitement!
