Three images which epitomise Chinese New Year

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

To me, ‘Chinese New Year‘ evokes so many different images: vivid colours, dancing dragons, noisy street celebrations and a rich assault on the senses. With the festival fast-approaching, Pinterest is brimming with pictures that evoke the vibrant nature and richness of these celebrations and so I’ve picked three of my favourite images which I think portray the Chinese New Year festivities.

The Dragon Dance

The Dragon Dance is a central part of the Chinese New Year celebrations. Dragons are considered to bring good luck and the dance is meant to show the power and dignity of the creature.

Our Top 3 E-Cards of 2012

Friday, January 4th, 2013

The end of the year is always a time to reflect and look back on the year that was 2012. We’ve had a look through all the e-cards sent this year and have compiled our top three e-cards of 2012.

Here are our Top 3 E-cards of 2012:

1. Birthday Cake Maker

Our top three funny ecards to send this winter

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Christmas is a fun, jolly time of year. Well, that’s the theory anyway. However, how many cards do you receive that are, if you’re honest, a little bit boring? This year, why not inject some fun into Christmas by sending one of our humorous animated Christmas ecards. We’ve listed our top three funny Christmas ecards below:

1. Turkey Olympics

The Olympic Games was the highlight of 2012 for many people and the Turkey Olympics ecard celebrates this. The turkeys in this card are trying to escape their inevitable festive fate and only some serious Olympian efforts will help them.

2. The Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse….’ Hang on a minute, there is a mouse stirring in this ecard. This card follows one mischievous mouse as it climbs up the Christmas tree to hug the angel at the top.

3. Lob the Leader

This political game let you throw snowballs at your favourite (or not so favourite) party leader. You can choose from David Cameron, Ed Milliband or Nick Clegg. You’ll have to be fast though because they duck and hide very quickly. Let them have it!

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Whilst it is easy to become all-consumed by the various festivities taking place at this time of year, we at Katie’s Cards have become increasingly concerned about the impact that the holiday season is having on the environment.

Turkey Olympics Xmas Escape

Approximately sixty per cent of greeting cards are sent at Christmas. This equates to roughly 1.7 billion Christmas cards being sent each year in Britain alone. How many trees will perish to feed this trade? At least two hundred thousand. Sending Christmas e cards instead of printed cards is eco-friendly, not only because no manufacturing materials are needed to make the cards but also because no fuel is needed to transport them by air or on the ground.

Stag in the Snow Ecard

Sending Christmas e cards is, evidently, one way you can make your Christmas a little greener this year, but why stop there? Here are a few more handy tips to make your Christmas kinder to the environment:

  • Homemade presents such as chocolate truffles or jams make great gifts and are handy to have in stock for surprise visitors.
  • Try to avoid giving too many battery-powered toys and electronic devices. A huge amount of energy is needed to produce them and their batteries and they guzzle even more when being used.

Opt for a real Christmas tree rather than a synthetic one. Use a sustainable planter and recycle them afterwards. Voilà, you can be eco-friendly and also have the lovely pine smell wafting around your house!

Good Luck Team GB! 2012.07.26.

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I can barely contain my excitement about the Olympics. Its such a wonderful event and I have the upmost respect for all athletes. Their dedication to their passion is utterly inspiring and although I will be cheering loudly for Team GB, I do feel proud of every athletes’ achievement.

The opening ceremony commences tomorrow at 9pm British time and I have a feeling we are in for a real treat!

To show my support, I sent Team GB our specially designed London 2012 Olympics e card with a message from everyone at Katie’s Cards cheering them on. Take a look at the card here. You can post a message of support to Team GB too by visiting http://www.facebook.com/TeamGB. To send our Olympic e card to the page simply send the card to yourself (with your special message for Team GB) and when you receive the email with the link to the card, simply copy and past the link onto the Team GB Facebook page for all to see!

16 days until the London 2012 opening ceremony 2012.07.11.

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

There are only 16 days left until the London 2012 Olympic’s opening ceremony begins!

This an incredibly exciting time for many people across the globe especially those who live in England, who have been anticipating this fantastic event since 2007. The construction of the Olympic park and re-generation of the surrounding area has been the focus of much attention since work began in May 2008. The site contains the huge Olympic stadium, Aquatics Centre, the Olympic village which is used for accommodation for athletes, a Velodrome and a white water centre.

It’s quite unbelievable to think that such a huge amount of work has been completed in such a short space of time. Take a look at this fantastic time-lapse video which shows you the Olympic stadium and surroundings under construction to completion;

Olympic park construction time-lapse video.

The opening ceremony, named the ‘Isles of Wonder’ commences at 9pm on Friday the 27th of July and will sure to be entertaining. Danny Boyle, Artistic Director of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony said:

‘Our Isles of Wonder salutes and celebrates the exuberant creativity of the British genius in an Opening Ceremony that we hope will be as unpredictable and inventive as the British people’

I’m sure you’ll agree that this is definitely something to celebrate and enjoy with loved ones. Its not too late to organise your own opening ceremony party or get together so why not take advantage of our specially designed, London 2012 e card and send your loved ones an invite to your themed party?

Welcome to a 4 day week! (and the new [Grandparents day e card] is on the website!)

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Hello all,

I hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. I always talk about the weather and so I feel I have to mention the appalling rain that we had on Friday and over the weekend – it didn’t feel like the latter end of August to me thats for sure!

Anyway, back to business. As I promised, the new Grandparents Day e card is up and ready to send! I really hope you all like it. We spent a long time on the drawings and animation to get it to look as though it was made by a young child and I think its really cute!

Here is your first peak:

Somewhere to find all sorts of eco-friendly products

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Hi all,

As you may or may not know, I am passionate about environmental issues and feel that if we have the opportunity to save energy, recycle and buy eco-friendly products then we should try to, as every little adjustment we can make counts (this was one of the reasons that I started making environmentally friendly e cards).

I understand that it can be hard to follow a strict environmentally friendly routine and I have to admit that I cannot always do the things I need to and stay green. We all need a little help and guidance sometimes, so in the name of sharing useful information, I wanted to tell you about a really useful site I have been using for the last couple of years.

Picture 2

Nigel’s Eco Store is a website dedicated to environmentally friendly products. It has an eco-friendly version of practically everything you could ever need in your day-to-day life, from eco-friendly paints, kettles, lawn mowers, toys, to camping equipment and gifts plus, Nigel writes a really good blog full of useful tips and advice covering subjects such as what to do for special occasions, how to clean green, eco money and much more!

Click here to take a look for yourself, hope you find it useful!

What are you up to this weekend?

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Hi all,

What a strange weeks weather we have had here! Some days beautifully sunny and others (like yesterday) rainy and awful. I really hope that the weather this weekend as I am hoping to have another BBQ!

We don’t have much planned this weekend which is great as it means Molly and I will do some baking together. She is much better than me and makes the most delicious chocolate chip cookies! She got the recipe from Nigella’s book and I managed to find it for you online here incase you want to try it. If you do, please let me know what you think!

I do love a bit of baking, although it doesn’t always turn out well though I suppose thats why its interesting – because you never quite know whether your recipe will work! Thats where the inspiration came from for the birthday cake maker birthday e card – its a recipe that always works out well!

Anyway , hope you all have a great weekend!

Meet the Katies Cards team

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Hi all,

As promised, here are a few snaps to help you get to know me and the rest of the team better.

Our office

First of all, here are two photographs of the Katies Cards office. The building with the bluey-grey ‘Engravers House’ sign above the window is the our office where all of our ecards are created. The building is a converted butchers shop and is bright and airy. There are 3 companies in the building altogether as well as my ceramics studio which was built at the back of the office.

P1010585[1]

The Katies Cards office


The office is in Teddington, a small and pretty town in Middlesex in the south of England. Its right next to a gorgeous park called Bushy park, where we go at lunch time and where I walk Plum.

The team

We are a small, close-knit team who enjoy working together to create our e cards in our lovely office in Teddington. We often listen to music in the office and because of Nick’s wide taste, usually leave the selection up to him. There are a few pubs nearby where every now and then we go to have a lovely pub lunch.

Nick

P1010663

My husband Nick works with me to come up with ideas for new e cards and helps bring my drawings and paintings to life on the computer screen. He helped me to create my first e card for my Mum and has been instrumental in getting Katies Cards where it is now.

Prior to Katies Cards, Nick studied animation at University. Once qualified, he embarked on a successful 8 years as an animator before deciding to go it alone and use his skills to work as a freelance animator for TV and film, which was how we met Barry.

Nick has an eclectic taste in music and enjoys food, cycling, films and spending time with friends and family.

I am very lucky to be able to work alongside my husband who is extremely talented and committed to producing such high quality cards for you!

Barry

P1010674

Barry is a talented illustrator who has worked with us to create our e-cards from a very early stage. He has made many of the backgrounds and characters you see in our collection and has also been instrumental in helping to shape the seeds of my ideas and come up with new ones!

He studied illustration at University and has since had a very successful 7 year career as an illustrator. When I asked him for some facts to write in the blog, he proudly told me that as a student, he designed the characters in a number 1 Playstation game called ‘Prisoner of war’ which is very impressive!

He is a keen follower of football and art and enjoys playing golf.

Racheal

DSC_1116

Racheal is new to the team, having only joined us 1 month ago. She was brought on board to help us grow Katies Cards due to her 7 years experience in marketing for both large and small companies. Unusually for a marketer, Racheal actually studied Sculpture at University, but after completing the degree realised that she didn’t want to follow the creative path and went on a search to find the right career. After joining a small publishing company as a customer service advisor, she was quickly moved over to the marketing department and rose up the ranks. Since then she has worked for another large publishing company and a disability organisation, planning and implementing marketing campaigns and developing marketing strategies.

Racheal is a keen cook and a lover of all things food, fashion and interiors.

Me

DSC_1177

You may already feel like you know a lot about me so i’ll try to keep it brief. I am Katie and I am the person who started this process 5 years ago. I am passionate about saving the environment and I am always on the look out for eco-friendly ideas, which is how I realised that there weren’t any good quality e cards to send to people five years ago when I was looking for an eco-friendly e card for my Mum’s birthday. I decided then to make my own e card, taking some time to make sure it was really good quality and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to do more! I came up with some more ideas for Nick and I to get to work on and then planned how we could sell them to people on the internet. 18 months later we launched katiescards.com with just 25 cards and have steadily been adding more to the collection over the years – we now have over 160 in the collection for all sorts of occasions such as birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s day, Mothers day, Fathers day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Independance day, St Patrick’s day, engagement, wedding day, anniversary, new baby, new home, Canada day and many more!


Click on the link to see the first birthday e card that I created for my Mum (you can send this card also if you like it).

I love what I do and that I am able to combine the things that I love in my job – art, environmental issues and working with Nick. Like Racheal, I also studied Sculpture at University and after leaving went onto become an art director for film and TV. After becoming a mother, I decided I wanted to take a step back from my career so that I could bring up our children Molly and Joe. Now that the children are older and turning into young adults, I have more time and thats another reason Katies Cards came along at just the right time for me.

I enjoy tennis, art, film, traveling and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy taking long walks with our Jack Russell Plum (who you will hear more about later). I love making e cards and genuinely wish to make you and your loved ones feel special when one of our cards is sent.

Plum (the office dog)

P1010619

Me and Plum in Bushy park


Plum is our Jack Russell but we bring her to the office every day so that she doesn’t get lonely. We have a garden here that she enjoys running around (and terrorising next doors cats!) and because we are right next to the beautiful Bushy park, I can take her for good lunch time walks which she loves.

P1010626

Plum


Plum is 5 years old, is great fun and a loving dog. She is, just as all Jack Russell’s are, she’s very stubborn and territorial and we often have moments when she goes completely crazy! But she is a great character and we love having her here in the office. She is also a brilliant source of inspiration and our walks together have been where alot of my ideas have formed.

She got her name when, at only a few days old, we took her to meet my mum. My mum has a Plum tree in her garden which some Plums had fallen off, and the new puppy picked one up in her mouth and brought it to me, dropping it at my feet. Out son Joe said ‘Plum’s a good name!’ and we all agreed!

P1010615

Me and Plum in Bushy park

That’s it for now. I will keep updating you on our team news and add some more pictures so that you know what is happening here but I hope you feel you know all of us a bit more now.

Hope you’re all having a nice Wednesday,

Photographs of summer trips

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Hi all,

We are in the process of taking some photographs of the Katies Cards team, the office and Plum so that you can get a better picture of what its like in the office where we create our ecards. I really want you to feel like you know us as you put a lot of trust in us to create heartfelt e-cards for your loved ones that are the perfect for the occasion and the person.

I am planning to finish the photo’s this week so look out for them. In the mean time, I thought you would enjoy some snaps I took recently whilst we were away in Cornwall with the kids. These beautiful scenes are a real inspiration to me, I hope you enjoy them.
