Amazing crafty friend....

Let me introduce you to my amazing paper crafty friend Kyleigh! Kyleigh does the most amazing papercuts and I'm a lucky gal to own one!

Kyleigh and I were put in touch by a mutual Twitter buddy when I tweeted a help request for gift ideas for my hubby for our 1st wedding anniversary. As the gift should be paper related, a papercut was perfect! Ideas were banded about and the design was finalised, a reminder of our fab wedding in Florida.

Here are some more of Kyleigh's designs, all available via her website in her Not On The High Street Store. Alternatively contact her via the website or twitter regarding a comissioned piece.

As Kyleigh had seen my quilts she asked if I'd be interested in doing a swapsie, a baby quilt for her daughter in return for a papercut for my hubby! Perfect! Once again we banded ideas around about the style and most importantly the fabric, the quilt is the one I recently blogged so I'll just leave you with a quick picture of it.

Don't you just love Twitter and the way it connects people? I do!


  1. What a fabulous idea for a first wedding anniversary. Looks like you both did very well and your finished quilt really is great :)

  2. Firstly, what a great idea on a PAPER cutout for your first wedding anniversary - definitely something 'different'.
    And secondly I think swapping crafts is fantastic! How better than to barter using your skills as payment? Definitely the way forward :)

  3. What a lovely anniversary present. I bet Mr G loved it. Juliex
