Summer dress

Hi, my second post today is to share with you this next scrap card I've made. It's a bit shabby chic style but not quite.

All the paper elements are free downloads from https://vk.com/skrap_roses.
The tiny shabby chic roses I made by die cutting small circles from cheesecloth and nylon fabric.
I sew the layers together and added a tiny pearl. They turned out so sweet and fluffy.

(I adore this little bunny, so cute).
I've also added lots of laces, crochets trims, ribbons and layers of patterned paper.

The mint leaves and the pink frame benath the dress are from my favorite online shop http://allmacraft.com/.

Guest DT for Crealies

Hi, yesterday I was guest designer for Crealies dies, here's a link to the blogpost but it's in Dutch.
Crealies is a Dutch company which creates and sells many dies and stamps.
I had the honor to make a project with some of the new dies.
I made a clear tag with foamiran flowers. I made these flowers using Crealies dies.

I used the following dies: 

I've also made a video tutorial from start to finish.
You can find this video on the Crealies you tube page.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tropical tag

Hi, today I'm sharing a tag with a tropical feel.

The background paper is a digital download from an Etsy shop called Walking Mombie Design.
All the flowers on the tag I made using foamiran from 14 craft bar. I used different dies. The hibiscus is not made using dies, I found a petal shape on internet and went from there. If I have the time I will do a tutorial on a foamiran hibiscus soon.

The leaves are made with these thin cut dies  from Little Birdie.
The sentiment is a stamp from inspired by stamping, plumerias. I was so lucky to have that stamp set in my stash because it fits the theme of the tag perfectly.

Fly like a free bird

Hi, today I'm sharing a card I've made with the pretty papers from Lemoncraft called forget me not.

The blue flowers on the card are from Itsy Bitsy, the white ones I made myself using foamiran and flower centers from 14 craft bar.

This card has a lot of different layers, not only paper layers but also ribbon and lace layers.

I've also added wood accents like the branches. The cage and bird are chipboard elements (from wycinanka ) which I covered with the Forget-me-not patterned paper.

I made the sentiment in Word and printed it out.

I would like to enter this card in these challenges:


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Hot air balloon

I had a project on my mind for some time; making a paper hot air balloon.
And because I had a few more days of vacation left I decided to make it and here is the result.

A hot air balloon in shabby chic style.
First I looked on the internet for a template, I found one here on Kaisercraft.

I cut out 8 pieces for the balloon part using heavy white cardstock.
I covered the pieces with Prima marketing Love Story paper. The upper part of the balloon has different paper then the lower part.

It's a bit difficult to glue the pieces together and to form the right shape, but I managed it. Any cracks can be covered with the lace trims.

The decorating is the fun part, I used prima marketing flowers, lace, ribbons, twine, pompom trim, beads, pearls and crochet flowers (from Allmacraft ).
I also glued a few flowers on the basket.

I do like how the balloon turned out, I hope you'll like it also.
