Congrats Lowri


Today I'm excited to be featured on the PaperVine blog which belongs to Lowri McNabb, a successful New Zealand-based designer with a huge following. If you hop over you'll find it's full of  exciting papercraft projects created by Lowri, beautifully photographed, often accompanied by how-to tutorials. There are also generous giveaways happening regularly on her site and this week you could win yourself a Scoot collection from Echo Park so do check it out.



I used Amy Tangerine supplies to create three cards that share a common colour palette of green, blue and brown. I'll be sharing one card a week here. If you're keen to see all of them at once just head over to Lowri's blog.

This was for Lowri

This first card is created to celebrate the fact that Lowri has just launched an online shop stocked with lovely papercrafting goodies. I'm so happy for her and sent it over to wish her every success in her latest venture.


I realize when filling out a scrapbooking questionnaire that I'm not particularly creative when it comes to using textile which led me to experiment with the most tactile item in my stash - this jute ribbon by Green Tara. Looped and wound round itself twice, it lends a sense of movement and rustic texture to the card. It's the an eye-catching element that invites the viewer to reach out and touch the card.  


Linking up to these parties.

Congratulations. You are so creative. I love having a look at your blog. I am about to make a variation on your China Doll Bookmark for a friend. I am sewing her a kimono and would like to make a couple of kimono dressed bookmark dolls as she is an avid reader like me.
