My name is Leonie (also known as Lee – hence Simp-Lee Cards). I live in NSW and I love making cards and scrapbooking.
I retired in 2018 and now have plenty of time to do what I enjoy. I have been making cards for family and friends for many years and giving them as gift packages. Even so, my stock of cards is continually growing so I am now selling them at local markets – “Handmade in the Hunter” at Sobels Winery in Pokolbin and “Sunday Muster Markets” at Mortels at Thornton – and now I am hoping to also sell my products online.
I hope you like what you see. I believe that anything handmade reflects the love you have for the person you are giving to. It shows that you want something ‘special’ for that person, whether you have made it yourself or purchased it with someone special in mind. I have been told that receiving a handmade card from me puts a smile on their face, so I hope this continues, and together we can put smiles on lots of faces!
Most of my cards are very detailed using many different techniques. I hand colour and paint many of the designs. I have limited supplies of each design and in many cases, only one, however I can always make further supplies of individual designs if needed. Many of the cards fall into several categories so you may see them in more than one place.
All my cards come with an envelope and are sealed in a cellophane bag to protect them.
Another addition to my handmade cards are gift card holders for when you don’t know what to buy for a present. There are so many gift cards on the market these days and it is a great way to give a gift that your special person (or persons) can use to buy exactly what they want. These gift card holders are little presentation folders that hold the gift card and look great to give.
I have recently started making wine bottle tags which are a fun and unique way of presenting your wine gift to someone. Another recent addition to my craft making is baby keepsake boxes for new babies. I also have a range of notepad and post-it notes gift packages for when you just want a little something to say thanks or I am thinking of you.
Have a browse through all my products and I hope you find that special card or gift you are looking for.
Please feel free to email me if you would like a card customised or personalised with your name.
I should add that I am still experimenting with my picture taking! Some of the cards etc may appear a little distorted or with shadows. They are as true to colour as I can produce at the moment. I plan to concentrate on getting more professional with my pictures and I will be replacing the current ones as I get better!
I also have a Facebook page called Simp-Lee Cards and Crafts by Leonie if you would like to have a look at that too.
Thanks for looking!
