It’s A Sailor’s Life For Me!

Shiver Me timbers! Avast me mateys!

Got a bit of a Sailor’s theme going on for you today for my Quixotic Paperie DT make this week. It’s a tag using papers from Echo Park Life is Good paper collection

with the cute Eric From Paper Makeup Stamps who is still on special offer with 15% off! The sentiment is from the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Pirate Sentiment stamps.

It’s amazing what a bit of mix and matching can do for you!

The sale is still on so you can still bag a bargain and there are a few more days to get your application in to the DT call!

Have a creative Saturday.



Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 43

Challenge time again at Quixotic Paperie and this week the lovely Rowena has chosen:

Gift It!

Create a gift project – calendar/candle/trinket box/wall hanger/etc.

Here is my DT make for this week and I thought I would make a CD cover. Do people still do compilation CD’s for each other or do they just share downloads? LOL! Anyway this is my compilation CD gift.

I’ve used the lovely funky Basic Grey Offbeat paper and a little bit of Prima So cute, with the oh so cute Eye Pod from Paper Make-up Stamps both available at Quixotic Paperie.

Enjoy your Monster Tunes!

Just Sailing In

After all my lighthouse cards last week, I am continuing with the sailing theme for today’s make. Simon Says Stamps Challenges has a ‘Things with Wings’ theme this week so I thought I would use the Paper Make-Up Stamp Taylor from Quixotic Paperie.

I’ve matched her with one of the Magnolia Sailing background stamps and the sentiment is from the Paper Make-Up Sailing By kit.

I’ve added sparkle on her wings with a Sakura Glitter pen from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie (she has run out but will be getting some more in soon!).

Thanks for sailing in my blog today 🙂

Paper Make-Up Stamps Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Make-Up Stamps Fan Blog Hop!

If you have come to my blog from Glitter Goddess Meli then you are on the right track! If not then you need to start your hopping at the Paper Make-Up Blog.

As I am knee deep in Christmas cards at the moment I thought I would turn the very lovely Charity Stamp The Heart Fairy from Paper Make-Up Stamps into a Christmas Heart Fairy 🙂 She is so pretty.

She has been coloured with my PrismaColor pencils, Sansodor and I’ve used Stickles glitter to add some fairy shine to her. I’ve used Glossy accents to add dimension to her heart and wings.

A little bit of Cuttlebug snowflakes made from vellum, white card, Stickles glitter, some mini-buttons and threads. The paper is from the My Mind’s Eye Colourful Christmas pack and I’ve used the Bow-Easy™ Template to tie the bow.

You can get this cute fairy from Paper Make-Up stamps in the US or if you are in Europe she is also available from Quixotic Paperie.

Right your next blog to hop is Shana’s Two Cute little monsters.

Have a lovely Paper Make-Up Blog Hop!

The First Quixotic Paperie DT Mini-challenge was to use the beautiful Paper MakeUp Stamp Shaela Fairy and sentiment in a project and here is my make:
