SCOTTIE DOGS


Yesterday I posted onto Twitter a photograph I had taken in 2006 of the original paper-cuts I had made for my first Scottie Dog range. The response from my photograph was that everyone had all assumed I created my designs on the computer! I therefore decided to write another post about my Design Process explaining a little bit about the Scottie Dog range. With most of my designs, I individually hand-cut (or in some cases, hand-tear) paper shapes to create one large design. This is the case with my Scottie Dog range; for example, for the black Scottie Dog design I cut out 48 scotties just for that one design.

I first launched this range in 2006 and it is still selling well today, coming into its sixth year! Over the years this range has had many reprints and we have expanded into different products within the design. Below are a few images of the 18 different products we sell in the Scottie Dog range (all listed at the end of this post).

Black Scottie Dog (launched 2006). Hand cut black papers, ribbon and art paper. Available in Gift Wrap, Gift Tag, Greeting Card, set of three Gift Bags and two Gift Boxes set (oblong set of 10 a and square set of 6).


White Scottie Dog (launched 2006). Hand cut white papers, ribbon and art paper. Available in Gift Wrap, Gift Tag and Greeting Card.


Angus Scottie Dog (launched in 2009), also licensed by Kenleys of London.

Scottie Journal (launched 2010). Hand-cut white and black paper scotties, ribbons and purple art paper. Available in Journal only.


Doggie Paw Ribbons We have also been selling Paw Print Ribbons for many years to support this range. Available in White Ribbon and Black Ribbon.

This range has sold over the last six years all though the UK, Scotland, California, Spain and Australia on a regular basis. Over the past three years with fashion for all things vintage, I have seen a renewed interest in the Scottie Dog and therefore think this is why this product has remained a top seller today.
