Magic for SODAlicious

Inspired by the blue and turquoise on the "pops of 9-10" from ILS, I made this spread for the art journal no 17 at SODAlicious.

I used stencils, journalcard, chipboard elements and stamps from their shop. The only stamp which does not come from the shop is the arrow and the dots from Felicitas Klink.
Whenever I try to order the arrow stamp from SODAlicious, it is sold out...

Art journal no 17 is about  "MAGIC" and this is my entry to the challenge.

Wish you all a nice sunday!

Take care out there!

My finished calendar for 2013

Here you see my 12 calendar cards made for THE CRAFT BARN challenge. I loved every minute of it!

Now I will put them together with bookrings and enjoy every single month of the new year, remembering what I thought of creating these 12 cards.

Hope you like them too!


old things out / new things in

What a weird thing - totally crazy and I love it!

At the Stampotique designers challenge Claire would like to know what we could use of old stuff together with new stuff (that might have arrived with Santa some days ago...!)...

Here is my contribution - an "old" ( but still adorable) stamp from Stampotique, "old" stars from Jo Copper Sandon (Stampotique) and "old" colours (PanPastel+acrylics +Dylusion inks)...

combined with...

NEW ribbon, NEW buttons, NEW masks and NEW ice cream color combination!!!

Hope you like it - it felt great to get started again!

Bring it on - 2013!

Happy friday!

the last calendar card for the craft barn

Finally! I did it! ...and I loved it.
To be honest, it was difficult to keep going those last couple of weeks, but here we are!!!

This last card should have something embossed according to the theme at the craft barn.

I used one of Tim Holtz' christmas embossing folders and then colored my card with distress inks. On my doily I stamped two hearts(Panduro) and embossed with christmas red to add the right colour. The bakers twine is a symbol of christmas wrapping and the stickers are just details to show how much we all would like some frosty temperatures instead of this horrid rain...

So, ladies, this is my last calendar card - I sure enjoyed the challenges and I hope to join in again next year!

I wish you all a merry christmas and I hope to meet you again in 2013!

Take care our there!

Some tags made of craft sheet and stamped with versafine crimson red - simply LOVE the combination! Stamp = a freebie from a stamp magazine.

Who else is getting ready?

No stress:-)

Some christmas cards

I am NOT good at making cards. This year I got help from Pinterest though... I do like my snowman on the art journal background. And the christmas tree kept clean and simple.

Happy monday!

An Angel for AJJ

Same problem here. No good light for photos....SORRY again!

THis is my spread for Art Journal Journey this month. The theme is angels.

I used the PanPastels again and once again the Studio Calico's mask "Mr Huey's". I love the effect of the modelling paste through the mask - the stars are just sooo cute!

The stamps are from l'encre et l'image, tuscan rose and Tim Holtz.

Once again - happy saturday!


Circles on my calendar card no 11

First of all - I'M SO SORRY for the bad photo. December is a "dark" month and we miss the light. Early afternoon and still no brightness. Just felt that I had to post it anyway, because tomorrow the next theme is due at the craft barn.

The theme this week was "circles".

I used my funky circles from Provocraft and I embossed the circles with an animal print from Cuttlebug and then coloured them with a distress ink.

Happy saturday!

My december daily

Yes, yes, yes.... I'm doing one too.

I started off with the pages, now I'm adding pictures each day and the 25th I will finish it with words and deco.

I will bind it all together with the coptic binding. I found the instrutions here.

I wish you all a nice friday!

Calendar challenge no 10

Here we go again...
I don't know what happened last week - SOOO much inspiration from all over and no urge to create myself...? I just couldn't be bothered.

But here we are - very late , but still. My 10th calendar card for the Craft Barn, where the challenge last week was "trees".
As usual, I used my Fancy Pants' calendar cards. The rest is a stamp from the swedish company Replay, some lovely "tree style" washi tape and a tree die from Tim Holtz.

Hope you all like it!

My advent calendar

I made this last year and I still love it. I remember how fun it was to collect numbers and "stuff".
Think I will keep it many years!

Happy friday!
