Quixotic Paperie 1st Birthday Blog 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. 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 I am delighted to have been part of the fabulously talented team! Here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow!
So for this very special birthday hop I have made a card with a matching gift box. I won't go into too much detail but feel free to ask any questions! The image is from Belle's and Whistle's and is called 'Sunshine and Apples' and is available at the Quixotic Paperie. The papers are Girls' Paperie and are utterly gorgeous.The gift box is an altered match box...one of the slighly larger ones. I used the same papers and embellishments so it would co-ordinate with the card. The roses and the spray are both found in Quixotic Paperie.
Thank you for joining us on the hop! Don't forget to leave comments if want to be in with a chance of winning one of the 3 amazing prizes!

Your next stop is Rowena.
