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.
This might be a tad confusing, but I made this first one for a friend of my mom’s (named Bea), who ordered it for her sister’s birthday (Alice), and was going to give it to her when she came here from Ontario to Alberta for Bea’s Birthday which was close to the same time, and saved her mailing it (Confused yet?). I did my usual roses, and added punched butterflies as well. It's nice when Bea orders cards, because she lets me do almost anything I want, and she is always pleased with them.
This next one, my mom asked me to make for her friend Bea who was having her 80th birthday, and her family was having a huge party for her. So, her and her sister both received a quilled card that week :) . Bea’s Card was done in fringed pink flowers and blue teardrop flowers. Once again for both cards I used texture plate from Sizzix set #19.
