Paper Quilting

My first attempt at quilting with paper.  I think they turned out pretty well. All the papers are from Stampin' Up!  Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and the Paisley Petals designer series paper. I used a square punch (1 inch) then after using my new Glue Glinder Pro to adhere all the squares and 1/2 squares, I ran the whole thing through my Big Kicks with the diamonds embossing folder from Sizzix.
Paisley Petals designer series paper and Wild Wasabi from Stampin' Up! The two salmon pinks are from Hobby Lobby. Diamonds embossing folder from Sizzix, and Lacy Squares from Spellbinders. Ribbon and pearls from Hobby Lobby.

Not a planned project:
See I had all these printed sheets of directions and examples for a Craft Event/Sale that my friend Pam and I are planning so I decided to bind them all so that I could flip through the pages more easily and find what I'm looking for. I chose a color of cardstock that I rarely use. Well then I decided it just had to be decorated so I tried to find colors that would compliment..... so since this is an evolution instead of a planned thing it looks okay, but I would not have selected the maroon if I'd known what I was doing in the first place. But I was just playin' around and it's just for me/us and I/we don't care ... right Pam?  And then I cut off the right side while scanning and a storm is coming so I can't rescan, must shut down the computer. Bye y'all:)

  1. Hi Carole, your paper quilting is awesome ! When I started creating cards in 2006 I was paper-folding (Dutch technique)a lot. It was very much like quilting as well. I still enjoy it, but with my addiction to rubber art stamps, it's been on the 'back burner'. I have a lifetime of nice papers for folding though ! Hope you are doing well, Shirleyx
