Quilling - A Walk Down Memory Lane....

It's interesting that quilling is becoming popular with stampers. It's something that I started doing when I was 13 and have done a little of since then, but have been thinking of putting on a card for about a year now. I, obviously, haven't gotten around to it, and now it will look like I'm just following the current trend. Aren't we funny like that? Anyway, I made this quilled piece for my mother's wedding announcement and she then had it framed. I'm not showing the two other parts of the announcement where I did the whole "I should stop now but I'm going to add more", thing, and to this day I wish I hadn't put those parts on it but you can't take it off once it's glued to the announcement with the glue I used then. I am definitely going to have to do some quilling on a card soon. I still have all of the little tools and guides for all kinds of quilled shapes that you can then turn into anything from a flower or grapes, to a cat or turtle. Anyway, hopefully you will enjoy what I made when I was younger. If you click on the images they should open up larger so that you can see them a little closer.


  1. Oh my goodness! I love the look of Quilling and several years ago I searched for tools and instructions so I could learn. Would you belive that the young sales clerks at every store I went into had no idea what I was talking about?! I will love seeing what you do with quilling on cards! So it's becoming popular huh? Wonder if I can find anything on it now ... hmmm, of course now that I am busy with little children and have not one bit a time to take on one more thing I suppose I could find it. Sheesh! *rolling eyeballs*

  2. I too started quilling a few years ago. People thought it was strange. But now it's become so popular. You did a great job on this. jean

  3. WOW!! Your work is astounding!!! TFS.

  4. It's goreous and would love to learn this someday! I can't wait to see more of your Quilling.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
