Mo Manning Stamping Bella Stamps Now At Quixotic Paperie!

Yesterday the gorgeous Mo Manning stamps from Stamping Bella landed here at Quixotic Paperie.  To say I was am excited would be an understatement.

I just had to take a pic.  Look at all that lovely pink packaging. 

Most of the stamps come with coordinating sentiments, and I think they are absolutely perfect for the images!

I have no doubt you will be seeing lots of creations with these stamps.  Here are four to get you started, from me, Judy and Rowena!

Wild Sprout Ebony

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I have a card to share with you that I've literally just finished using this cute TGF Ebony stamp (available HERE)!  I stamped Ebony in Memento Tuxedo Blank ink pad (available HERE) and coloured her with Copics.  Both my DP and 'charming' sentiment sticker are from the Crate Paper 'Brook' Collection Kit (available HERE) - I adore this kit!

Just a quick post from me as both daughter and hubby return to school tomorrow, so it's a bit of a 'do' day today - ironing, packing bags, cleaning shoes ... etc.  But we hope to take a little trip to the coast this afternoon as it's such a beautiful day here in the South West!

Hope you have a FAB day, whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Simonne x

Let Them Eat Cake!

Hi again! Rowena here! Last weekend was the new Kraftin Kimmie release which I always look forward to as I just love the quirky stamps, and the cuties too:) When I saw this card made by Elaine as her sneaky peek I knew I had to have that stamp! Along with Alice in Wonderland I also love Marie Antoinette-how gorgeous is the dress in this image-was soooo much fun to colour! I haven't made an easel card since December so thought I'd have another go-they are just so special I think! I made my easel card so the front was 6 x 6-can't be doing with any smaller than that really-there never seems to be any room left! If you've not had a go at making one yet here's a fab tutorial by Jacqui with simple instructions and piccies. Here's a front on piccy:~

The flowers I used are from the Prima E line-such fab value aren't they? I spritzed them with Shimmerz in Mudpie then sprinkled a little glamour dust over them. The leaves have got a touch of stickles added in eucalyptus, and all the pearls are once again fromPrima's fab E Line. Ooo almost forgot about the lace-I've never bought any Prima lace before until the weekend and oh my-it is so special! You'll know exactly what I mean if you've got some and if you haven't you need to!

Thanks for popping by today and for any comments you leave, see you again soon. Rowena

Tim Holtz Papers And More!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend, whatever you were up to!

I'm back this week with some news!

Firstly, after reviewing postage and packaging costs, our charges have increased.  The good news is that they are still weight-based and very reasonable!  You can view all shipping costs under "Shipping & Returns" over at Quixotic Paperie.

In happier news, I have some fabulous new additions to share with you today!

Several colours of gorgeous wired jewels!  I see lots of potential for these on projects, from contemporary styles to vintage shabby chic!  Sold by the metre, so you will have plenty to play with!

If you're like me - a little Alice in Wonderland obsessed - you will love the new charm design in stock - Queen Chess Piece!  These are gorgeous, and of course perfect for more than just Alice themed projects!

Two of the gorgeous new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stacks have arrived!  I have "Vintage Shabby" and "Retro Grunge" all stacked up and waiting to go. 

I also have some fantastic new Spring/Summer themed Wooden Shapes available in sets of 9, perfectly sized for your cards and other projects.  There are four sets, so pop on over and check them out!

All the new stash can be seen under "New Products" at
