One of my favourite Quixotic Paperie makes (apart from everything my team mates make!) is a card I made in January with the lovely Jerry from Paper Make-Up Stamps, so cute:
Materials: Paper Make-Up Stamps Jerry, Basic Grey Sugar Rush, Nesties
My favourite Quixotic Paperie Products:
Elaine has so many things I love that I was mooching through the shop trying to pick some for this post and I just kept seeing things that were on my favourite or wish list! I tried to narrow it down otherwise this post would go on forever!
Well I can safely say that I love pretty much all of The Greeting Farm Stamps but here are a few of my favourite things that are a little less obvious looking at my blog 🙂
I just love this stamp from Prima:
Something I thought I would not need but as soon as I got it I was totally in love is the Bazzill Jewel Templates:
Then there are the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers, such wonderful designs and such beautiful quality I want to frame them!
My favourite tips:
1. I often ‘gut’ my papers to make them go a bit further, i.e. if I am layering papers I will cut out the bits of the papers that are covered and you don’t see – makes me feel a bit better about using up my favourite papers LOL!
2. When I am sewing papers I sitck them together with a thin layer of silicone glue rather than useing double-sided tape so that I don’t gum-up my needle with glue.
3. To make my double-sided tape go further I will often cut a strip the length I want then cut that in half lengthwise with stick-resistant scissors – and there you have it two strips for the price of one LOL!
There is more to see at the following wonderful blogs:
