Quixotic Paperie Challenge


Our Challenge to you this month on Quixotic Paperie Challenge is:

What No Square or Rectangle?

So your make this month can be any shape you like as long as it isn't square or rectangular!

This month there is a chance to win a fabulous prize donated from Quixotic Paperie by Elaine and picked randomly. There will also be the opportunity to work with us as a guest designer as each month the DT will pick their favourites from the entries and one will win a guest DT spot for a month.

So rules? There are no rules! Yep that is right! As before our only rule is that you spread the word and make sure you link your make back to us on your blog post. So you can use any stamps, papers, not just ones stocked at Quixotic Paperie just as long as the make falls within our theme for the month.

The challenge will run from today 10th November until Tuesday 7th December (12 noon UK time) and you can enter the challenge as many times as you like in this time period.


Its that time of the year again, when I buy sweets for Christmas and then go and eat them before hand.  The trouble is I love Turkish Delight and it doesn’t matter where I hide it, I can hear it calling me, what has all this got to do with my creation for this months challenge, well!!! the Turkish Delight Box is just fantastic to decorate so I just had to eat the contents to make it.


I have covered the Box and Lid with Black Card, I used swirls from the Stempelglede Friendship Rose Collection on the lid, I stamped them with Versamark and used WOW embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment, which is from the same collection, on a square of black card for the label.



I attached the lace from Wild Orchid Crafts around the edge of the lid with Glossy Accents,  The main image is another Stempelglede Stamp this one is Maribel  also available from Quixotic Paperie, she was stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink and I have added a little touch of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to her lips.



Finally it was finished off with Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, to which I have applied Stardust Stickles around the edge.


Well 3 projects in one day cannot be bad can it

Hi Jacqui,
Finally made my way over to say 'Hello' after meeting you at the NEC. What a pleasure that was :~) What a stunning creation this is. It's such a gorgeous image & I love this idea. Not keen myself on Turkish Delight, but I'm sure I could find a chocolate box that needs emptying!! Hope you're keeping well.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
