About that Goosebump feeling

altGoosebumps began in 2004 making Christian greetings cards for “The Befrienders  a ministry for people with a disability.

Alison designed a range of stationery after being asked by some friend’s to make their wedding stationery in 2009. The range was first launched that same year at the Wedding Extravaganza Show in the Odyssey Arena, Belfast. Since then there have been many happy couples choosing Goosebumps to set the tone for their special day with stationery designed especially for them.

In 2010 Alison was wondering what else she could do with her crafting skills. A friend suggested children’s name plaques and the first Goosebumps plaques were sold that Christmas. Since then the range of wall plaques has snowballed into a wide variety of items many with Christian verses, a welcome return to Alison's original heart’s desire to encourage and bless.  

Alison has been humbled and blessed to have been invited to share her faith and the Goosebumps story at various woman’s groups.  she says “it is such a lovely thing that Goosebumps is used to bring  women of all ages together for fellowship to be encouraged and go home with their own “creation” at the end of an evening”

Alison is a wife and mum of two young girls so has plenty to keep her occupied, therefore she has other gifted crafters to call on from time to time to lend a helping hand when things get busy.  “ It will be interesting to see the plan unfold for the next phase of Goosebumps”

The Product

 

All the products are made using quality materials .  The wallplaques are made of a backboard of plywood or MDF in various shapes some of which have been hand-drawn by Alison and laser cut to ensure products which are unique to Goosebumps,  they are either painted in a range of colours or covered with beautiful quality craft paper and then embellished with plywood shapes, buttons and hand punched paper shapes.  The finishing touches of handwork, in glitter, pearlised paint and sometimes gold leaf are what bring each item to life and gives them that Goosebumps look.

We recently got married and decided to contact Goosebumps as they came highly recommended. Alison was very helpful and creative and welcoming and understood exactly what we wanted. We were both delighted with the results of our wedding stationery & order of services. I would definitely use Goosebumps again in the future.
