Quixotic Paperie Anniversary Hop......


Today is the 1st Anniversary of the Quixotic Paperie online store, and we’re having a celebratory blog hop!  If you’re already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from

Kim Costello   http://paperbabe.blogspot.com/ - .

  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 fabulous and wonderfully crafty year and here’s to another one and hopefully many more to follow!

So as a bit of eye candy for you i have made a card using a few  goodies that are available from Quixotic Paperie…

This little sweetie is called Amelia and comes in a set called “oliver & Amelia happy day set“… comes with sentiments as well… (not the ones that i have used) I have coloured Amelia in with copic’s but for the life of me can’t find the sticky note with the colour numbers on..:( sorry.

Amelia has been stamped onto neenah card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink pad.

I have used some Tim Holtz Idea-ology 12 x 12 Paper Pad: Vintage Shabby

I have also used some core’dinations cardstock and a Martha stewart deep edge punch.. along with also using Tim Holtz ticket die.. the sentiment on the ticket is from Whimsey stamps and the happy birthday sentiment is cc designs.

Thank you for joining us on the hop!  Your next stop is

I just want to add what an honour it is to have been asked by Elaine to join in with this hop as a friend of qp to help her celebrate her first year.. and wow what a line up of talented crafters!!! Have fun checking out their awesome creations
