My apologies for not editing the video but I am still in the process of learning how to.  Right in the middle of the video you will hear my phone ring and then my husband leaving me a message that him and my daughter are on their way home!!!!LOL...I hope this doesn't disturb your learning...hahaha...Also since English is my second language I might repeat myself several times and or sound annoying with my  I need to improve that area! Well I hope you enjoy it and comments and critique is accepted!

Thank You Card

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  Today's project is a Thank You card I made for one of my coworkers.  She wanted a space to put a key ring to give as a thank you to someone.  I used the sweet treat cups from Stampin Up, paper is from the Nana's Baby Girl Stack, I punched the hole for the treat cup with the 1 3/4 Stampin Up circle punch.  The sentiment is also from Stampin Up.  I quilled a flower using purple, pink and green 1/8" strips of Quilled Creations quilling paper.  For the back of the treat cup I created  a pocket with a pull out tab this way the cup can be filled with treats or other goodies.  I hope you enjoy it and thank you for taking the time to stop by today!

Quilly Hugs and until next time!

Baby Theme Quilling

Happy Monday!
I have not had time to actually make a new project lately.  I  have been finishing some custom orders but today I would like to show you a 6X6 Quilling piece I made using wider strips of quilling paper.   I actually posted this project on my FB Fan page, but if you missed it here it is. The width of this paper is 1/4, if you are a beginner quiller this paper is the ideal to begin rolling if you feel intimidated by the narrower 1/8 strips.  Using the basic rolls such as the teardrop and marquise this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the cardstock from Lasting Impressions.  I framed it in a Jolee's by you 6X6 shadowbox frame.  Hope you enjoy it and I  also hope to be able to post new projects this week.

Quilled Hugs,
Linda K.
