WELCOME TO MY BLOG

Hello
My name is Christine Anne Matias; over the last five years I have been studying in so many ways getting the correct skills to start my own business. I have have taken Tafe courses in Small Business Management and also Photography, and then in March this year I joined Stampin' Up to become an Independent Demonstrator to be able to reap the rewards of being part of the Stampin Up! family and have the wonderful Top Quality Products to use for the Stationery I will be designing and making in my business.

I am very proud to say with all the set backs I am now ready to get in get this long awaited business up and running full time. I know I couldn't have done it without the constant push from my hubby Ray and complements to keep me inspired from my dear Sister-In-Law Sue and dear friend Debbie. 

So with this said my business Christine's Creative Cards & More is available for a Special Card made for your Special Someone, Invitations made in a style that reflects you for any Occasion. Order of Service Booklets made for your Loved One's Funeral, or  Order of Service Booklets made for your Wedding Day a beautiful keepsake for all your guests and also a wonderful way to have your guests follow and join in with the service of Your Special Day. Order of Service Booklets made for Memorial Services too.

I make Invitations and Order of Service Booklets Orders from 10 to 1000 with Prices and Designs you will be able to afford. There will be something for everyone.


Christine's Creative Cards & More

I have had a few names for this business before this one, as I was only ever going to make Stationery Specializing in Order of Service Booklets for Funerals, but over the years I have made Order of Service Booklets for a Wedding, Engagement Invitations, 21st Invitations, Baptism Invitations, Special Birthday Cards the list goes on, hence the name Christine's That's Me, Creative Cards obviously for Cards and More well it covers everything else I am willing to design and make for you.


Funerals and Memorial - Order of Service Booklets, Bookmarks, Fans, Single Page...

The main reason why I went into studying at Tafe -  Cert IV Small Business Management to learn the ins and outs of owning a business of my own, so I will be able to handle by myself as I could not believe how much others charge people when they have lost a loved one. Mostly their passing happens out of the blue, never ready and knowing what to do. Funerals seem to be finalized so quickly these days thinking we have to get it over and done with quickly. This is not the case, you are allowed to take your time to get your head around a few things at least. Death is something we don't normally sit around the dinner table and discuss, some people still think it is taboo to do so.
I am here to help you, in a way to give you, the family and friends who will be grieving in their own ways something to treasure of the last ceremony of their loved one.
We have to remember that even though we are saddened by the loss we should also reflect on the happy times, memories made throughout their life, there will be so many but it is always nice to remember a few of them in print for all to look back on in the days, weeks and even years after the passing of your Loved One.

Whatever your Occasion is; the Stationery made by myself does NOT have to be like what the others do, I am willing to try and make it exactly how you are wanting it to look like.
After all you are the person who is paying for something that you want to reflect you or someone you love, because if you wanted the norm you would just go to the shop and buy it when you buy your bread and milk now wouldn't you?
