Quixotic Paperie Anniversary Hop...

Good Morning,

Wow it's the 1st of June and today is the 1st Anniversary of the Quixotic Paperie online store, and we're having a celebratory blog hop! and Elaine kindly invited me to join in all the fun... so if you're already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from the wonderful Emma Lockley - 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!

Here's my card, using the new Cheeky Beauty released today at the greeting farm, and Elaine has them available in her store too! What a hotty tee hee, she's has been coloured with copics and I have put her with these gorgeous Fancy Pants papers, prima lace, handmade bead charm, and the Tim flower...
I even made a little co-ordinating gift bag with shrink charm too...


I have based my card design on the wonderful sketch over at cardpatterns sketch-66


Thank you for joining us on the hop! Your next stop is the fabulously talented... Rachel Jakes
  
Here's the complete hop list if you're distracted by all the stunning creativity along the way LOL!
