A couple of things I found at the recent Sydney Craft Fair...

Hi Everyone,

I took a trip out to the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair in June (oh boy, how time flies with 3 little boys, a husband and a business!) and wanted to share a couple of things I found.

Scrapmatts
Australian Made, Laser Cut Chipboard, original shapes and designs, made to complement your scrapbooking pages or your card making projects.

I thought these might be a nice little touch to a quilled card or scrapbooking page. Here is a picture of the matts. .

Using these labels on your cards give a 3D look that would match your quilling.


Have a look Here at how you could work the matts into your scrapbooking page and incorporate quilling. You could replace the flower and butterfly with quilled designs.

The matts come in a neutral colour so that you can colour them in or paint them to suit your design.

I also found these gel pens (which can be used on the matts) called Gelly Roll. You can use these to colour in your scrapmatts, write on your cards or scapbooking pages or even to add a little sparkle to your quilling. It gives the quilled design a glitter effect without the sticky glue lumps that can form when using glitter. The downside of these pens is you are limited to only 14 colours.

I used the pens on this design here:

It is not the best photo or the best quilling but hopefully you can see what I mean.

This is what upsets me a little, there is no possibilities for such shows where Quilling is concerned Cry . I think I would give an arm and leg to fly to Australia firstly to meet you people and to visit such quilling shows. I wish I were a bird in the sky the ones that fly to Australia to emigrate wooow that would be just down my alley,so I may have to just skip skippin . I can see on your card how very attractive it looks with these gel pens
