To celebrate QP's 1st birthday I've made a card using probably my favourite image from Kraftin Kimmie stamps called Marie Antoinette-she's such a fun image! The papers I've used are a mix of Tim Holtz and some Basic Grey. I've kept it quite simple really, I've stitched all the edges on my sewing machine and the swirls are from my new EK success punch that I got at the craft show on the weekend. I had to add some of the fab Prima e-line pearls too! Here's a little close-up:~
Hello everyone! Up bright and early here today for the 1st Anniversary of the Quixotic Paperie online store, and we're having a very fun celebratory blog hop! If you're already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from Judy's Blog. If not, then hop back to the beginning at the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog. You won't want to miss a stop, as in addition to lots of fantastic inspiration, there are some prizes on offer (full details on the Quixotic Paperie Blog).
Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her - so,Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles 'n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more! In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!
In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.
It has been a fab and wonderfully crafty year and here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow! I have been absolutely honoured to have been a part of most of this first year by being on the DT:)
