Today we are welcoming back Nicola of Paper Profusion, as our Guest Designer. Nicola was chosen by the DT as the winner of the Neglected Dies challenge.
So, let's move to hear from Nicola and also see the beautiful project she's made for the current challenge Flights of Fancy.
I’m Nicola a.k.a. ‘Paper Profusion’ living in Dublin,
Ireland. I’ve loved handicrafts for as
long as I can remember, probably inspired by my Mum who excelled at every
single crafting technique out there. From very young I was an avid knitter and
always enjoyed learning crafts especially ones involving paper. I’m now
medically retired however during my ‘career / good health years’ my main
creative hobby was photography especially travel/wildlife related. During a
time of serious illness, I became hooked on paper crafting as it gave me an
outlet to a home based hobby that I could dabble in, at my own pace. I’m
particularly drawn to the vintage / shabby chic genres usually adding lots of
embellishments and ribbon.
I love creating anything with birds and butterflies so this
theme made my card easy for me to do. I’m glad to have finally tucked into the stunning
Maja Design papers that I was so fortunate to have recently won. They are beautiful to work with and it's impossible to choose which side to cut. These papers
are from the Vintage Spring collection.
I hope this little bird’s eggs hatch
very soon! Thank-you so much to all at Frilly & Funkie for allowing
me feature today as Guest Designer. It’s always a privilege to be associated with
this wonderful challenge.
I'm sure you'll agree that Nicola's card is absolutely beautiful and has provided even more inspiration for the current challenge Flights of Fancy. If you would like the chance to join us as a Guest Designer all you have to do is join in with the current challenge!
