Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog Post - Paper Quilling On Scrapbook Pages


Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren Alarid. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in California and 2019 Artisan Design Team member, and I am so happy to be sharing my creativity on the company blog. Today I wanted to share with you a fun technique that has been around for a while but is new to me – paper quilling.
Adding paper quilling to scrapbook pages can add so much interest! The dimension creates so much texture and you can add as many curls and layers as you like. Additionally, the quilling allows you to create the look of a background and foreground with little effort. I just love the unique effect it gives!

This paper technique can be as simple or as complicated and detailed you want it to be. You can just add a few paper strip accents or you can add layers upon layers and extra bits of papers for a more intricate look. My page was on the more detailed side and ended up being quite a process, but it was so worth it.
I began by using some of our new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and my Aqua Painter to add subtle color to the paper, making sure to paint the edges as well.  I repeat this process on the other side of the paper. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match because the differences will be too subtle to see on the finished page. Also, the paper may curl, but that’s okay because we’re curling it anyway.


After the paper has dried, I cut it into ¼” strips. Once you have cut the paper into strips, you will need to go back and add color to the freshly cut edges for a cleaner, cohesive look. Next, I used my “Take Your Pick” tool to wrap my watercolored strips to make them curl. You can use different parts of the tool for a more loose or tighter curl.



The final step is to arrange and adhere your strips to your page. To me, this was the most complicated part. You can use hot glue for a quicker adherence, but I like the cleaner look and how forgiving wet glue is, so I prefer the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. It allows me to maneuver my strips before committing to a position and doesn’t leave the spidery string that hot glue does. It takes patience and a few clear stamp blocks holding your strips in place, but the results are well worth the effort. I also used a few ocean themed stamp sets (Magical Mermaid and Sea ofTextures) for more interest and to tie in the theme of my page. Below is a close-up of how I placed my curled strips.


I wanted to include a few final pictures (below) so that you can see all the dimension and detail that I was able to achieve with this technique. Though it took some considerable time and effort, I love the effect and the memory I was able to capture.



I hope that you have enjoyed this fun technique and will consider giving it a try yourself. It’s just another great way to add so much interest and to spice up your pages!
Happy Crafting!

  3. HELLO PEACE  BE ON TO EVERYONE ON THIS PLATFORM! I,m here to explore blogs and forums about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV). I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my closet friends. I searched on-line to know an enquire cure for HERPES and i read someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 by Herbalist Razor,  After visiting his website :  https://herbalistrazorherb.wixsite.com/drrazorherbalhome so I decided to contact the same herbalist because i know that nature has the power to heal everything. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL and it got to me a few days later! I used the herbal med as he instructed me to do for 18 days, which I strictly did. And I was cured! It's really like a dream but I am so happy! That's the reason I decided to also add more comments on Him so that more can be saved just like me! and if you need his help, you can email him on drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp +2349065420442 I,m Janice Anthony and you can get in touch with me via janiceanthony147@gmail.com

  4. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including Herpes, Diabetics, Asthma, Cancer, Hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Hepatitis B and my Sister and her Husband were cured of herpes by chief dr lucky who uses natural herbs to cure different kinds of illness. Even chief dr luck proved to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless people using natural herbs. I know it is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. Contact  on WhatsApp  +2348132777335 or email  chiefdrlucky@gmail.com
