Hi Lisa, Papercraft Inspirations is now published by Immediate Media, rather than Future Publishing, hence the redirect. I'm not freelancing with them at the moment (the card project was designed 5 years ago!) so don't have a direct email to query the download, sorry. Maybe you could try getting in touch via their 'contact us' button? I hope that helps. All best, Kirsty

Hi Jodi, You can, yes. I'm not sure how well they'd stand up to a solvent-based cleaner over time, but they're completely fine to clean with baby wipes or soap and water. Hope that helps. Kirsty x

Hi Neva. I'm no longer selling the kits, sorry. The post was written about four years ago, and the focus of my business has since shifted from product to publishing. Thanks again for your interest. :)

Definitely! I would have loved it back when I wrote regular penpal letters. :)

Oh, books. No matter how much time I spend reading online or how often my dad extolls the virtues of his Kindle, I don't think I'll ever fall out of love with real books. Especially not when they're as beautiful... Continue reading

Hi. The link is http://www.papercraftinspirationsmagazine.co.uk/category/blog/kirsty-neales-paper-doll-templates.htm, but doesn't seem to include the template any more. I don't own the rights to repost, sorry, so you'll need to contact Papercraft Inspirations through their website (http://www.papercraftinspirationsmagazine.co.uk/contact-us).

Thanks, Rebecca! And yep, that definitely sounds like a good way to use up origami sheets - even better if they're the double-sided, pre-cut squares. That would be a lazy girl (i.e. me!)'s dream. ;)

[Please click here to read this post on my current blog.] Me and these easy-to-fold markers go back quite a few years now. One Christmas, I was struggling to find gifts for my dad who can be tricky to buy... Continue reading

Ah, thanks so much, Alicia - I'm really glad you're enjoying them. And I definitely agree with you, re. crafting in any language. There's a pile of Japanese books sitting on a shelf in my office which I have very little chance of ever reading, but that's never stopped me loving and using them. :)

The card I made for my Papercraft Inspirations column this month involves bits of old neck-ties. If you're thinking it looks like I wander round the house picking out supplies at random for these things . . . well, yeah.... Continue reading

Although the title may lack a little snappiness in translation, the cover of the French edition of my book, 100 Idées Déco Avec les Tambours à Broder (*), is really pretty, don't you think? (*That's Hoop-la, should your French be... Continue reading

Well, you're the best. I'm not sure anyone else could have led me to post a picture of the shit-storm that is my desk just now. ;) And am so looking forward to being able to send my paperiest pal a copy of the book. xx

Aw - thanks a million, Mollie. I almost feel like a traitor to the world of fabric and stitching, although in my defence, I did manage to sneak in an embroidery-on-paper project. Never that far away from a needle. ;)

Yikes. It's been a while. I'm very glad to be back here, though, thanks mostly to my friend, Julie, who invited me to take part in a different sort of blog hop today. It's kind of like those chain letters... Continue reading
