Paper Pleating


We all know how time-consuming (and addictive) cardmaking can be. My crafting had been limited to weekends until I went on maternity leave last year. Suddenly, I had more free time than ever before. Last month, I decided to give up my insurance job to to stay home with our little girl and make more time for family, friends and hobbies. I'll also be working a few hours each week in a shop. It's a big change but you know what, I've enjoyed every single minute of motherhood so far. It fills me with happiness and there are so many precious moments I wouldn't want to miss.

There are many exciting things waiting to happen this year. Soon, I will move my craft space into what used to be the guest bedroom. We freed up the space last year and now it's a big empty room apart from Kurt's small office. I've been using the dining table for years!

I've been taking a 3-weeks break from crafting. Yes, three weeks! Could you do that long without? I've been doing lots of reading and catching up on my favourite show on youtube. I'm also looking for new inspiration, new products to use but as always there's little time to do everything I'd love to try.

A while ago, I was asked by Papercraft Essentials to write about Paper Pleating. There's not much inspiration on the internet so in the end I combined the technique with some basic dies.

You will find my second Paper Pleating feature in the current issue of Papercraft Essentials 142.
