Quilled Ducks #PaperCraft

Quilling is one of my favourite hobbies. We can make a variety of fun craft or art work with colourful quilled paper, quilling tool, and glue. I think the possibilities are only limited by our imagination.

Sparkle Handmade Holiday Cards

It is fun to make our own homemade holiday cards to give our loved ones. To make this Holiday card, I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out happy holidays and the snowflake. Then I used the Craft Twinkles Writer to frame and add sparkle to the card.

Making Stickers with Washi Tape

We made our own stickers using Washi Tape. It is simple to make these stickers, and cut out any shape you wish and paste it. We tried a few simple shapes using scissors, if you have a puncher or design cutters you can try using that as well.

Quilled Birthday Card Cupcake with a Candle: Project from Pretty Quilled Cards book

Quilling, also known as paper filigree is an addictive fun craft that I started a few years ago, and have enjoyed making cards, frames, used it in decorating notebooks, and more. Most of the time, when I do quilling I quill the paper into circle shapes and then make different shapes using my fingers.

I followed the instructions on the Creating Kirigami book by Carlos N. Molina to cut this intricate design.

Kodak picture kiosk

I was very happy to be invited to experience the Kodak picture kiosk in a one-on-one session; and to print some fabulous keepsakes.

Using the Kodak kiosk we can print:
- pictures in different sizes 4 x 6, 5 x 7, 8 x 10, wallet size pictures, collages
- greeting cards
- calendars
- photo books
- creative themed pictures with borders
- personalized items i.e. mugs
- we can scan old pictures and print
- prints from Facebook, Picasa
- can edit and crop

I was very happy with the outcome of the pictures as the prints were beautiful. The printed pictures can be touched right away without worrying about finger prints :)
It is fun, easy and creative to make affordable personalized gifts. Do take a look at the Kodak kiosk at supermarkets and grocery stores if you get a chance. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
