UWP Luxe - Specialty Greeting Cards, Stationery and Fine Soap Giveaway

 Congratulations to Anita Chisolm and Eva Onstenk-van Ammelrooij, giveaway winners!

One day last summer while browsing in a botanical garden gift shop, I made my way toward an inviting fragrance and was soon in front of a beautiful array of soaps... not only was the scent lovely, but each box featured an elegant, laser cut design on the lid - what a way to get this paper lover's attention!

Fast forward to a month or so ago... I was contacted by the UWP Luxe company and was asked to partner with them on a giveaway as a way of introducing their products. I'm pretty positive you'll like what I have to show you!

Happy Thanksgiving - Quilled Chrysanthemum Card

Just a note to say thank you on this special day here in the U.S. Words alone are not enough to express my gratitude for each and every one of you who visits All Things Paper.

Quilled Thanksgiving Card

I made this card to devise various ways of using a hawthorn punch. While looking at the photograph, I realized the design (funnily enough) reminds me of hands waving... totally apropos for the occasion. So a heartfelt greeting from me to you along with thanks for reading along no matter where you live in this fine world of ours!

Quilling Tips - Make a Baby Card

I don't often lean toward quilling cute designs, but the arrival of a new baby is the perfect exception. Making this card for a couple whose first child just arrived was a lot of fun, but it's probably best I not admit to how much time was involved. No one ever said quilling is fast, but it still gets my vote as an enjoyable thing to do.

Congratulations to Ingrid K, Achatblois and manthapowers. If your name wasn't drawn this time, take heart... another Diana Ferguson Jewelry giveaway is coming up very soon!

Longtime readers will remember that paper jewelry always gets my attention... I've admired Diana Ferguson's beautiful work for quite a few years. Diana Ferguson Jewelry is not only unusual in the way the designs range from fun to elegant, but the handcrafted Petals to the Metal collection of drop earrings has a definite paper aspect.

Make a Quilled Best Wishes Card

It's been a while since I last shared a quilled design, so I plan to remedy that by posting a new one more often, drawing from my handmade collection. Yes, I have two boxfuls of cards awaiting occasions to send them on their way... crazy, I know. I'll call the series... hmmm... pondering... #snailmailstash. In each post will be construction details in case you would like to make something similar.

Anna Bonino of CRIZU appeared on my radar this past summer via paper artist Amy Genser's newsletter. CRIZU sculptures were displayed in The Summer Art Loft in New York City alongside Amy's rolled paper murals. Soon I was following Anna's posts and have enjoyed seeing her elegant creations ever since.
