gems & crystals // printable paper

Hello! The gem obsession continues and I have been working on some printable paper that you can download and use for wrapping gifts or scrapbooking etc.

I’ve also made a few of my paper-cut gems in black which I prefer (I think)….I want to make about a 40 or so and stick them on the wall (in reality this might have to go onto the future projects list)!!

My youngest son started school yesterday which was a very happy/sad occasion. He’s doing half days for a few weeks and then I will be spending all my time on the website (and a new book which I’m keen to tell you about).

Hope you are all well & happy ^_^

  1. The black paper-cut gems are VERY striking. My middling saw your paper just now, and we’ve already downloaded it so that she can print it up and decoupage a new savings bank for herself. Thank you!

  2. Merci pour le partage et bonne rentrée à votre petit bout!
    C’est toujours un déchirement pour les parents la première fois même si çà leur fait quand même du bien.

    J’ai hâte de voir le livre terminé (j’ai acheté le premier, il est superbe une mine d’idées!).

    Bon courage

  3. Hi Mimouna,

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    My son was really happy to go to school (even though he is one of the youngest in the year) so that helped. I do wish I could press a pause button sometimes though.

    The new book is very exciting, it will be one for grown-ups and I’m doing it with a different publisher. More news soon! ^_^

    Bye for now

  4. These are just gorgeous! I do a lot of scrapbooking so I will have to find something fun to use the background for. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Beth,

    I had looked at Spoonflower and had gone as far as to upload designs…but I ran into technical problems!! It’s definitely on my to-do list. Would love to sell my own fabric. Need more hours in the day!

    Many thanks
    Kate ^_^

  6. Hi Sarah,

    Sorry for the late reply.Thanks so much for sending me the link to your gifts. The neon stickers look awesome (stealing that idea ^_^)

  7. Hey! Very late comment and I have a question how you do these paper gems black? I can’t figure out how i print the pattern on black paper?
    I hope you understand what I mean!

  8. I printed onto black paper and was still able to see the lines. Alternately you could cut out the gems in white and use that as a stencil. Kate ^_^

  9. This is such a great idea! Ran into problems while downloading. *sigh* But still. Awesome. Thanks for Sharing!

  10. Wow…How stupid of me…I wanted this paper so bad that I was checking it out again, when I realized I was actually clicking on an ad that said DOWNLOAD instead of your printable! I’m so happy now!

  11. Thank you very much for this 🙂 I have stumbled upon it right on time – before the White Elephant gift exchange party tonight. I made an envelope of two A4 printed sheets that will house the gift (a set of Parker pens – fits perfectly!). Looks very stylish indeed!
    All the very best to you and a happy Christmas season!

  12. Love this template! This is just what I need for a party I am throwing in February. The diamond pattern will add the perfect touch to the backdrop. I will be linking to this post when I blog about my party. I know how important it is to give credit.
    And now that I found your site, I want others to come visit you too 🙂

  13. I adore this template! I need this exactly for a party I’m having in February. The diamond design will give the backdrop the ideal finishing touch. tunnel rush
