I learned to quill in October 2001, and still love it...maybe even more now... There is no limit to what one can create with quilling! It goes so well with many other techniques too... I have won several awards for my quilling and cards. I sell my quilling at arts and craft sales, & by word of mouth. I also do some custom/personalized orders. I do quilling demos, and teach both beginner and advanced techniques classes.
In 2013, I became accredited with the North American Quilling Guild.
The next 2 are from a kit, in which I bought a few of these, and then changed the layouts, and added the embossing. Besides, the texturz plates for the backgrounds, I took strips and embossed the 'Season's Greetings' & 'Merry Christmas' using the Cuttlebug Season's Greetings folder, that has has rows of different greetings. So I just used strips,of leftover pearl card, and embossed these two certain ones. The kits come with everything, from pearl cards, which I cut, and put onto my white cards, which makes them go farther. They come with all the embellishments, and even the foam tape squares. I've had these for a while, so thought I should make use out of them.
