Two spring cards!!

The weather has been very nice around here these past few days and so I was inspired by it!!Also I wanted to take part in the March third challenge of Get Creative,were we are supposed to make a layout or card using at least 5 flowers.Now people who know me know I'm not the flower type of gal,but like I said,spring has come 'round and I was inspired!!

This is what I came up with,I used a simple tri-fold card and cut it free hand.I used both parts of my cardstock and made two cards that I decorated differently.

I also have a few more cards ready(I've been busy lately,lol) but I'll just show you these two now and the others in another post.

I hope you like them!!


Always dream in vivid color!

This is a layout I've made for the March first challenge on Get Creative.Like I've said before I first planned to make another layout for this challenge,but that didn't work.But I really liked the challenge(a true challenge I've got to admit) and I decided to try and play with it.This is another picture of my baby nephew (I'm changing themes after this,I promise,lol) I've had and love.I liked it was all black and white and I decided to play with that!

For this challenge we had to use 1 pattern paper(base paper Bobunny,I think it's from their Back to backs collection,but I might be wrong),1 cardstock(I used black cardstock for my picture matting and also the same around the letters in the title),1 strip of ribbon or lace(I used a white ribbon with black stitching),1 button or brad(I used a small red button I had lying around),1 die cut(that's the black/white/grey frame you see around the picture.I bought it in a collection pack with a whole of other die cut shapes/frames etc at a local craft store.It's from a brand called Artemio and it's handmade in India from 100% recycled paper and it's gorgeous!),1 title(I used MME Wild Asparagus Alpha stickers and the small white letters I printed and cut into 1x1cm small squares,yes I'm cross-eyed right now!) and of course 1 picture.

I actually like the way it turned out.It's the first time I'm using different fonts/letters to write a title and I actually like the results!I hope you like it as well!!



This is the first layout I've made with a picture of little Sander(and my sister told me it's ok to show you all withouth blanking his face out,yay!!).I loved this picture,he's so cute and happy in it and the colours are beautiful!!

To make this layout I used a sketch from Scrapbooks etc..When I first started it I was planning to make the sketch work with the challenge of Get Creative,but after a while it became obvious I couldn't make it work without using two strips of tape so I decided to make it as I thought was best and just make another layout for the challenge(which I still haven't made,and have no idea if I'll ever get to it).

The sketch I used was #121 which you can find here.The base paper is from Core'dinations,as is the white-beige tag(which actually is a hard cardboard tag I glued some core'dinations paper on),the brown paper is Bobunny,the striped tape is from a local toy store which carries some craft supplies and the letters I've made myself a while back.

I hope you like it!


Two cards today

Hey everyone!

Today I'm showing you two cards I made a few days back.The first one is a card for a couple that's expecting their second child,a baby girl any moment now.The father doesn't like pink at all,so I decided not to use those colours.I wanted to use bright,happy colours and two of my favorite colours are green and orange.I also had this really cute sticker I wanted to use.It came together but I'm not entirely happy with it,and I might make a new one if inspiration strikes before it's time to send it...

The second card I've made for my best friend.She had her birthday a couple of days back and even though I was sick I wanted to make her a card.I love making cards that I haven't made before,different,crazy and interesting shapes and like always I could find something interesting at Dawn's youtube channel.The card was very simple to make,but looks really cute.I decided to go a different route than Dawn did,so instead of sticking the pinwheel part on the card I added a brad in the middle,so the pinwheel actually turns.Because I didn't have a stamp or sticker or rub on that said happy birthday I found this cute little printable stamp and printed it on matching paper and then cut around it.I think it turned out pretty cute,and my friend said she liked it,so mission accomplished!!

I hope you like them too!!


Mr. Chaos

After a not so nice Sunday when I was sick today I'm feeling somewhat better,still not 100% but good enough to share one of those other layouts with you.

I've got to say I'm in love with this layout.I've had the idea of using scraps of paper for a long long time,I had done so before when I first started scrapping,only I used the technique when I was making coasters from cd's for a friend but never before in a layout.I had this big picture of Mori for a while now,and I knew I was going to make a layout out of it,but I didn't know how to use it properly.So it all came together.I now kinda wish I had kept his eyes their original colour instead of making the entire photo black and white,but it works like this too!

I love the bright colours and I love the fact that the layout is so colourful and happy,it makes me happy when I look at it!!I think it's probably my favorite layout of all the layouts I've made!I hope you like it too.

The base paper is Coredinations and the scraps of paper are from different collections and pieces of paper I had lying around.The letters are from the Cosmo Cricket Blackboard collection.


Feeling so grape

These days there's something wrong with me,I've been feeling very creative and I've made 2 layouts (and I've got another one waiting to be glued together) and a card in the past 24 hours!!I don't know what's wrong with me,but I like it :)

This layout is made with one of my favorite pictures.It's pretty old,from one time when my dad decided he wanted to make wine in our yard.Both me and my brother went crazy with stomping on the grapes,we fell in them and basically made a mess rather than actually helping,lol!I still have very fond memories of that day!

To make it I used two different colours from the Core'dinations colour range.I tried to match the colours with the colours of the pants my brother is wearing in the picture.I've made a bunch of grapes with quilling(haven't done that in ages either).After encouragement from my scrapping friends I decided to test my hand at doodling.Ok it's nothing major yet,but it was one of my first times trying it and actually liking the results!The title is with some of the left over stickers from the Winnie the Pooh paper pack I bought to make my sister's mini album with.

It's a very simple layout with lots of "white space" which I'm not used to,but I kinda like the result.I hope you like it too!
