The Brooch


Hello there!

There has been so much going on with our family lately that I did not have so much time to do scrapbooking. This time it seems for real that everything is going to be better and better from now on... Fingers crossed! 

And here is my new project - a brooch. It is the first time I am trying something like this, he he. It is my daughter who asked me if I could do it to her, and how could I say ´no´ to her, he he...

This brooch is made as a contribution to a WOC new challenge - buttons and bows


I used for this project from WOC:
- Vintage Seam binding ribbon
- Organza Rose trim small
- Self adhesive pearls
- Resin Lady Oval Cameo big 

Have a wonderful Easter holiday and many creative moments!

Be Brave


When I colored this old stamp from Magnolia with my Distress Markers, the girl came out to be Princess Merida from the movie Brave. Have'nt you seen it yet, SEE it! A wonderul movie that I laughed a lot at and one tear or another was near to fall down my cheeks. ;)

Maybe this card is meant to be a push for someone to be...brave. :)

Shabby Chic and a shopping tip!

Hi there everyone.
Today I have made a patchwork type card. I love the look of the doily on it. I also used Wild Orchid Crafts adorable wooden buttons. I hope they get restocked soon. I used a lot of cream and white flowers, I wanted to go for that shabby chic look.

If you don't know what to look for in the Wild Orchid Craft shop sometimes I like to search by color.
For example if you just bought a pack of paper and it has alot of light blue. type baby blue in the search, or even just blue. Sometimes you will find things you didn't even know was in the store. :)

Have fun shearching.. and shopping!

Hello Wild Orchid Craft friends.
Have you seen this new White Cotton Lace in the Wild Orchid Craft shop!
I love it! It has a shabby chic feel to it and it's just gorgeous!
 
 Recently, I've also been thinking of ways to use my bakers twine. I just love this stuff!
It worked perfectly for the strings on my wooden balloons. Get creative with your bakers twine! It comes in so many colors and adds so much texture to your projects.
 
Have a wonderful day!

Wedding Chair Centrepiece


Hello everyone!

Here is a beautiful cold but very sunny Sunday outside and I am presenting you my new creation - a Wedding Chair. No no, not a real one, just a centrepiece for bride and groom. I am showing just one of them, but there will be two, with the names on the front of each chair on a label. 
 It is very difficult to make a good photo of a white creation, but hopefully you will enjoy it even if it is a little bit grey, he he...



For this creation I used from Wild Orchid Crafts:
- Cherry blossoms
- Tulips
- Heart shaped pearl beads
- Self-adhesive pearls 3mm
- Vintage seam binding ribbon


Have a good and creative day!
