scrapbooking giveaway :: name prints from clarkie designs
This weekend, one commenter will win a name print (with the name of your choice) from Clarkie Designs.

Clarkie Designs is the art studio of Emma Rogerson, who loves creating unique and affordable wall art for children and babies. She started Clarkie Designs when she couldn’t find any wall art she loved for her own children’s bedrooms. So she designed and made her own, first for her son and two years later for her daughter. It was only as they started to grow up and notice their surroundings that Emma realised how stimulating and exciting wall art can be for children. Emma reports, “My little boy loved to point out his pictures and as he grew bigger he tried to say the words. He still likes to comment on my designs!”

All Emma’s pictures are either hand cut collages or fun, original prints. Included in the range are personalised names and initials as well as mini framed prints ideal to hang on bedroom doors. They all make great presents, both for children’s birthdays, christenings and new arrivals. Click here to visit Clarkie Designs and have a look for yourself.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post. If you could have any name, what would you call yourself?

Entries close at midnight Sunday UK time and the winner will be posted Monday evening, so be sure to check back to see if it’s your lucky day!

Good luck!

  1. Jo Says:

    I didn’t like my full name as a child – I especially hated one of the middle names my parents gave me. But know I love my middle name of Grace as it evokes something of a bygone age. My brand new nephew Harry would love one of these gorgeous name plates.

  2. Angie Gutshall Says:

    I love these! I would love one for my daughter’s room. If I could have any name it would be Elizabeth. You could go by Beth or Liz.

  3. Tinkersdamn Says:

    Esmerelda. Seriously. :D

  4. quietangelsb Says:

    Love the name Kathryn- would love the option of going by Katie, Kat, Katy, Kate or just Kathryn…

  5. Melissa V. Says:

    That’s a dough one. I like the name Claire.

  6. tam Says:

    I have one of the top 10 names for the year 1967, Tammy-but as I asked questions about my name and who chose it I was spared the title GingerMichele, and BobbiJo by my father thank goodness. If I could chose it would be a bit more original maybe Livvia or Belle. And the name plate would be a great additon to my news sons room Cael(pronounced KALE not Cal) he is my sixth son and eight child. We have a last name that is usualy a first name so naming my children we had to be careful…

  7. Tracey Says:

    “ What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet “

    I think I’d go with Juliet or Elizabeth. Though Elizabeth Zoey is being saved for if I ever have a daughter which is doubtful due to having three boys. lol

  8. Mel Says:

    Oh, gorgeous! :)

    I always wanted to be called ‘Rebekah’ as a child, don’t know why… I’m quite happy with ‘Mel’, to be honest! Though ‘The Awesome One’ would do ;)

  9. Lynda Says:

    Not sure I would want to change my name- maybe if I had a choice, something short & sassy!

  10. Amy Lynne Says:

    These are sooo cute. :)
    I have always wished I had the name my mother picked out for me, and my father didn’t agree to; which is Abra. <3

  11. Dawn Says:

    I was called Dawn due to being born in the early hours of the morning, not sure if I would change my name but now having a husband who’s name begins with C and giving both our sons names beginning with C perhaps I would like a name with C too. Especially as it sounds good with my new surname

  12. Natalie Says:

    Ahhh…. how lovely. I don’t know what name I would choose, but it will be whatever we decide to call our baby when he or she is born in November!

  13. Nastia Says:

    I am pleased with the name my parents gave me – Anastasia ( with the stress on i), and I wish the Germans pronounced it correctly and not AnastAsia.

  14. Caroline Says:

    I wanted to be named Ann when I was a child becaouse we had to make a nametag in a class and my friend Ann finnished hers so fast and mine took forever to complete.

  15. Joanne Says:

    Ive never liked my name but to be honest I cant imagine being called anything else :)

  16. Fifi-T Says:

    I hate my family name (but I suppose I can marry to get rid of that) Dickinson got me bullied as a kid. My given name I’m happy enough with (Fifi is cute but not very professional so I’m glad it’s Fiona) but I like it because my dad really wanted to call me Arwen (which is cool, but I’m glad I didn’t get called that when the movies came out)

  17. Julia M. Says:

    I love my name, so I would not choose to be called another. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. jo sowerby Says:

    my full name is joanna but i have always been jo or jo jo to friends and family so i would choose either one of those,
    jo xxx

  19. Clare Says:

    Ooooh pretty. Hmm, I’ve always fancied the name Evangelina. You can have it for best and be Eva, Evie, Lina, Gel (!) Van etc. depending on the situation. Actually I do quite like Clare. But it’s not easy to shorten.

  20. Andrea MacDonald Says:

    Ooooo I love!!! Any name? Probably Sophia. Love it!!!

  21. Lisa M. Zepponi Says:

    ooh growing up I wanted to be named one of the Charlie’s Angels…now I just like my own name Lisa. These are lovely!

  22. Wendy M Says:

    I’d have to go for Olivia after Olivia Newton John, I am such a Grease fan that I couldn’t choose anything else, except Rizzo maybe :-)

  23. Katie Says:

    Love these name prints. I actually quite like my name…I think it’s grown on me over the years :-)

  24. alisa beth Says:

    If I had to rename myself today, I’d pick Eleanor. I’ve been in love with the name ever since I read Nicholson Baker’s The Everlasting Story of Nory. (I also love Elinor Dashwood and Eleanor Roosevelt.)

  25. Leanne Says:

    Regina Phalange


  26. Imperfectionist Says:

    I quite like my Royal Wedding name: Lady Veronica Sparky-Beacon. She sounds like trouble.

  27. Jyotsana Says:

    Hi Shimelle… I would like myself to be called Jerry. I think Emma got a very creative idea and I find her creations very tempting not only for young children but they can be fun for people of all ages… Like a nameplate or a board for one’s craft room. Great Idea !! It has inspired me to try such things for my crafting space. Yay !!!

  28. naomi Says:

    I actually love the name I have and would never want to change it!! :)

  29. Manda Says:

    I’d choose a name to go with those of my daughters, so maybe Asta or Astrid.

  30. Boo Says:

    I don’t think I’d change my name – I love it to much :) But I do also love my nickname Boo :) x

  31. kim corona Says:

    one of these would be perfect for my new granddaughters room there so awesome

  32. Maja Says:

    I love the name Leia!

  33. Mary Says:

    I like my first name as it was after my grandmother but my middle name I would change for sure. Maybe Rose or Claire.

  34. Anthea Goodman Says:

    My mother admitted to me during my teenage years that she got my name from a Mills & Boon novel! It made me dislike the name even more since I’m not the romantic, frilly, girly type of person and I’m definitely not into those kind of books. To be honest, I’m kinda surprised to find out that my Mum was. So I always imagined myself with a different name. The name itself changed frequently but I think the two that I kept coming back to were ‘Charis’ and ‘Yolanda’. I wanted to call my Daughters by those names but hubby over-ruled me. So we ended up with Erin and Cecily instead. They would both love a nameplate, but especially Cecily as we can never find the right letters for her name in the shops!!

  35. ines Says:

    Wonderful name plates. If I could rename me, I would choose “Hetty” because I like it and I’m now a bit sad, that my husbund was choosing the name for our daughter and not me… as specially because she IS a “Hetty”!
    Thanks for the change to win. Your giveaways are always wonderful. Have a fab weekend, ines

  36. Mary Says:

    I like both my first and middle names as I am called after both Grannies who had passed before I was born. Love the name plates and if I win please may I have Bruce for one of my grandchildren.

  37. Carmen Says:

    I’m going to be really boring. I actually think my parents ROCKED when they picked my name. They were stuck and were days and days arguing apparantly. in the end my Mum threw her hands up in the air and said “for Gods sake lets call her Carmen Miranda and be done with!” and they did! :D I’ve had to put up with jokes from the older generation about where’s my bowl of fruit hat and “Ay Carumba” when I say my full name. But I seriously love it and wouldn’t change it for the world :P

  38. tanja Says:

    I think Aurelia is a rather pretty name… :)

  39. Jackie Says:

    I wouldn’t have chosen my first name of Jacqueline as although I shorten it to Jackie, I have to spell it out all the time because of the different ways it can be spelt. I would probably have liked my middle name, which is nice and simple, just Emma.

    Fab giveaway too.

  40. jo Says:

    I have always though about changing my name. My full name is Joanne, and growing up there was always at least 2 other “Joanne’s” in the class! This has followed me throughout my life as well, both in work and with my friends outside of work, there is always a couple more Joannes to add to the mix!!
    As a child I wanted to be called Leigh, which is my middle name, but right now, I have to say I am happy with Jo. I have learned to love my name, even if its not that unique!!

  41. Caz Says:

    Whilst I don’t love my full name of Caroline, I like the shortened version my friends use of Caz, and have accepted Caroline for work … but as for names I’ve always had a soft spot for Natalia. I’d love a plaque for my niece Isla who will be 2 at the end of the month, I didn’t like that name when she was first born but now I’ve associated it with her its OK and its who she is … and I took some pics of Islay (where the name is derived from) when on hols for her!

  42. Tine Says:

    My real name is Kristine, nickname Tine. I don’t like my full name, but I’m okay with my nickname canÄ‘t think of another name coz I think it fits me well. But when i was younger i wanted to be called Josephine (my younger bro should have been a Josephine if he would have become a girl and i was a bit sad my parents didnt think about giving me this name 2 years before lol). Anyway then i said i ll call my first daughter Josephine. But since 2 years or I dunno i loooove the name Momo. For me it sounds very nice :). And for a boy it would be Thabo (its a Tswana name frm South Africa/Botswana meaning joy). Well ja this would be for a son not for me… oooops…im kinda changing the topic ;)

  43. Susan Says:

    Susan, what can I say? Everywhere I have gone to school, college, work places, friends there are always more than one Susan! I love the name Tilly, just because it’s a lovely gentle, soft old fashioned name!

  44. Jemima Says:

    My name is a biblical name & I can’t find it anywhere in print ~ I would love to have my name in print as I love my name ~ Jemima.
    I would treasure this gift forever especially since I love scrapbooking!
