Sweet Summertime & Take A Walk In The Park!

The gorgeous new 12" x 12" paper collection kit from Echo Park has arrived in stock!  A Walk In The Park is just as fabulous as their debut collection - Sweet Summertime - of which I have also received a top up!

Our fabulous PaperBabe Kim Costello used the yummy Sweet Summertime papers on her blog hop card last week, so you can see just how bold and gorgeous the designs are!  The stamps she used are both from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamps collection, also available now at Quixotic Paperie!

Also received today - restocks of all the Bazzill Basics Jewel Templates.  Do I need to remind you how fab these are? ;)


My Mind's Eye Meets Mo's Diva

The new My Mind's Eye papers Meadowlark Dawn available over at Quixotic Paperie are so stylish. I love the shabby chic black and off-white colour scheme and thought that all it needed was a highlight colour to really set it off!

Thought the colours work perfectly with this little Diva which is one of Mo Manning's lovely illustrations available as a rubber stamp at Quixotic Paperie.

I've used some flat backed pearls, some that I've coloured with my Copic pens, and a large pinwith a pin cap to embellish the card.

Hope you are having a good Diva tantrum day!

New Mo Manning rubber at Quixotic Paperie

[click on the pic to enlarge it]

Happy Father's Day everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you a card I've made with one of the brand new Stamping Bella Mo Manning rubber stamps that are now in stock and ready to buy at Quixotic Paperie.  This FABULOUS stamp is appropriately called "Game On" and can be purchased HERE.  I love using large stamps (this one is 3.5" x 3.25") as then the image becomes the focal point of the card. 

I also used some paper from the fabulous Cosmo Cricket 'Joy Ride' 6x6 mini deck, which is my current go-to for male cards!  I usually find adult male cards almost impossible to make, but with these new Mo Manning stamps, they are no-brainers and a pleasure to create!

The next new-release-Stamping-Bella-Mo-Manning stamp I'm going to use is "Big Guy Grilling" - every man I know seems to love being in charge of the BBQ!  I'm positive this stamp is going to sell out fast, so hop on over to QP now and grab yours ... but be prepared to spend loads as Elaine has added tonnes of new goodies to the store ... Echo Park Summertime paper pack ... TGF Sunshine Stamp Kit ... Tim Holtz 12x12 Lost and Found paper pads ... CC Designs Sweet November June Release (Amy's wonderful mermaids!) ... in fact too much to mention here!!  Go to the main page of QP to see a full list of all the new yumminess!

Thanks for popping by and have a fabulous day!

Quixotic Paperie 1st Anniversary Blog Hop!

Today marks the 1st anniversary for Quixotic Paperie!  We're having a celebratory blog hop and it starts here!

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!
On today's hop, the Quixotic Paperie Design Team and I have been joined by some fantastic crafty friends.  A big thank you to each and every one of you for your support and for joining in today!
As if the hop wasn't enough excitement for you, there are THREE prizes up for grabs! Winners will be drawn randomly from comments left throughout the hop, so make sure you comment on all the posts to be in with a chance of winning!

The three prizes are all worth around £50, and will include a surprise mix of rubber stamps and other goodies available at Quixotic Paperie.

The prize draw will take place on Sunday 6th June, and winners will be announced that evening.

And now, time to GET HOPPING!!!!  Your next stop on the hop is KIM DELLOW! 
Here's the hop order, just in case you get lost along the way!

Phew! Quite the line up!  Hope you enjoy all the wonderful projects!
