Something Little Special, by Amy Clarke

Meet Amy Clarke. She started 'Something Little Special' around a year ago, with beautiful examples of her clever handiwork here.

A woman of many talents, her 'day job' is as graphic designer at radio station NOVA969, but Amy needed a creative “me time” outlet outside of work, and decided to start her own stationery company.

Something Little Special is just that. Amy specialises in designing pre-printed invitations and greeting cards for all occasions. Anything from the children’s birthday party (make that double the invites for my twinnies), to a hen's night (oooh, I remember those!), or even high tea (yes, please!).

Says Amy: "I combine my love and passion for design, paper and parties and put all that I can into making some beautiful products. I make sure I print onto 100% recycled paper, which also suits the rustic style of invitations I create - bonus! I feel that it's important to be conscious of the product you're using, and having something chemical-free around little kiddies is far better.

"I have always loved stationery and paper. I could spend lots hours and money in paper shops. However, I find these days that invitations are becoming too impersonal, with just a click on Facebook or an email invite. I feel that people need to hold and appreciate an invitation for a special occasion. I’m trying to bring that personality back into parties!

"My products stand out because they are so unique. My love for florals, animals and beautiful colours make my invitations completely original. My goal in the near future is to open up a little quirky paper shop. It’s as simple as that. I could sell gorgeous patterned paper, stationery, knick knacks and talk to people all day long! How fun!"

Now that is completely infectious enthusiasm. And I must admit I have always been a little envious of that kinda skill and creativity. Cooking, yes. Creating quirky cards and artwork... not capable. But Amy is.

The Kiddies Party Pack (pictured) is one of her best sellers, and features 15 birthday invites, 15 custom birthday lolly bags, and 15 thank you cards. The Party Pack costs $35.00 and you can buy it on www.somethinglittlespecial.com.au

Then there are the baby shower invitations, in a yellow hue, for those who don’t know the gender of the baby/ies (Best. Surprise. Ever.). They come in a pack of 15, including envelopes, and are only $18.

All Amy's greeting cards are $3 each, and include this cute zebra greeting card, one of her best sellers, as well as the quirky deer thank you card (my fave), with the text connected to its antlers.
