World Card Making Day With Quixotic Paperie

Celebrate World Card Making Day with a Festival of Favourites! 

The Quixotic Paperie DT thought it would be fun to mark this year's World Card Making Day with a mini blog hop looking at our favourite Quixotic Paperie DT projects, products from the shop and card making tips, so grab a cuppa and join us! 

We would love to hear about your favourite projects, products from Quixotic Paperie or your favourite tips so feel free to share! 

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:

Emma - Something Sweet
Kim Dellow - Crafty Makes (You Are Here!)
