Card making workshop #1

It was so a while ago (23.03.2018) when I agreed to run a cardmaking workshop… Well, I guess I didn’t know what it means :). I agreed and was prepared for worth! Well, I was prepared and not prepared at the same time. The last picture (above) shows how it was! It was crazy! There wasn’t prepared paces at desks […]

It is all about cards…

Card making took me over! Since not all girls are well and in kindergarten I don’t have much time for cardmaking, but I start in the early morning and then think about it all day long and when girls get into beds at night I run to my table (it’s good to have it downstairs!) and create what I’ve in mind! […]

Card Making: Lovely Bear

I’m back to cardmaking (a bit!) and these are first three I made downstairs! I like all of them but love the last one. All the bears are hand-stamped and hand-colored using girls coloring pencils – I don’t have grownups pencils! I started with this childish theme cause it has a good statement “A good day to be happy”! I […]

Craft space: Up or Down…the stairs!

(I don’t know why, but for the first time I wanted to start my blog post by saying…) Good morning, everyone! I hope you don’t have -20C outside or at least if you do have way too low below zero – you are warm inside or outside enjoying it! I spend two days taking card making stuff from upstairs, down to […]

DIY: 3D Tulip greeting card

While girls were ill at home, we made beautiful 3D tulip greeting cards using square paper plates and colored paper! You can find the directions & template here. Yes, that is my coffee in the middle of those paper scraps… and that is Marley watching birds! I run on coffee all those two weeks while girls were ill! And why […]

Another shaker card!

OK. Do you remember our first shaker card!? I was inspired by Lana and her shaker card “Hello”! Nelle came home from kindergarten last Thursday and announced that her teacher is leaving on Friday! “She will have a baby and we have to make her shaker card!!!”… I paused… “It’s only a few hours till the bedtime, Nelle! Maybe we can […]

Our first shaker card

I want to go back to cardmaking, but not that much, cause all my craft corner looks like a mess and since it’s upstairs and in the room with closed doors, I forget about it! Every time I walk upstairs (rear, cause we don’t live there) I’m surprised of what’s going on in my craft corner! Janis brought me sequins […]

Handmade Christmas card

This one is my first card after I finished those 55 identical Christmas cards… Thought I couldn’t touch that embossing folder anymore. But it wasn’t that bad! I had few minutes (free time!?) upstairs in my craft corner and made this: I used my new Dahle and it was precise – perfect cut! This is a Christmas card for a […]
