Glittering eyes for Panpastel

Since tuesday , I have this beautiful song from Christina Perri in my head. "Jar of hearts". Can't get it out of my mind... the words "you're gonna catch a cold from the eyes inside your soul".
So , this tag is made by me for Panpastel with that song in my head. The theme this week is glitter and glitz and the eyes are glimmering in the dark from inside her soul...

Stamps from Stampotique and the last freebie from the craft stampers.
Background and heart in Pan Pastel and for the girl I used my Faber Castell brush pens.

Hope you don't think it's too groovy...

Wish you all a nice week!

My tag for the craft barn and panpastel

I made this tag with the panpastel colours turquoise, permanent red and yellow ochre. I wanted to try to use triadic colours of the colour wheel and this is the result. So, with this tag , I can join 2 challenges this week :

The craft barn with the colour wheel tag and
Panpastel with using two of something .

The stamps are all from l'encre et l'image and the rub-ons are from fancypants.

I was happy to use my sewing machine again - long time, no see...

Hope you all like it!

Antoinettes birthdayparty

Yesterday we celebrated my collegue Antoinette, who is now leaving work to enjoy her pension.
We made one book out of old childrens books, were everybody had to finish one page. The other one is a circle book, one of Jaines creations and you can find the instructions here.

We had a wonderful evening together and dear Antoinette was very happy for her personal gifts!

Take care out there!

a gear tag in pan pastel

This tag is made for panpastel and for creavil at the same time.

A couple of months ago, I bought these lovely panpastel colours and now I'm learning how to use them. I love the brightness and the soft shine.

The gears were embossed and painted aswell as the background. Really enjoying my cuttlebug at the moment!
Stamp from Tim Holtz.

" Keep those wheels turning ", that's how I feel right now! But NEXT WEEK , I will calm down and relax a bit again! I will start my mini album with the photos from Brasil AND I will start my own SMASH book...

Wish you all the best!

My JANUARY page.

Kathryn Wheel thinks that january in England is grey and boring and that is the reason why her january page is grey. I still believe that we can get some cold and crispy days here in Luxemburg this january , so my page is frosty blue and white. This is the first time I join this group of people. I love to see what they all can create out of one idea...

I used stamps from stampotique, stampers anonymous ( Tim Holtz), Katzelcraft and Cherry Pie Art Stamps (de Stempelwinkel).
The white paper is from Kaisercraft.

I enjoyed this start of 2012!

Wish you all the best!
