Christmas Craft Start

torsdag 29 augusti 2013

Hello there!
With this tag I start my christmas crafting for this year!
I just could not resist when I had bought this lovely Glowing Candles die from Memory Box.

I cut a few small pieces of paper and "filled" the candles with them. At the bottom I added some of Stampendous embossing pouders, Shabby Blue and Green Fragmants. The candle flames got some Platinum Stickles on.

  I placed it with 3-D spacers over a vintage image, and a small paper bag with a tag in.

I also used a metal corner that I sponged a little with white Gesso, a piece of lace, a charm and some other things from my stash.
Hope you like it as much as I do.
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Candy Travel Bag

fredag 23 augusti 2013

Happy Friday everyone!
Sometimes you need to have some small gifts ready, you never know when you quickly need one.
So I have made two Candy Travel Bags, one for a woman, and one for a man.
Today I show the female one, came back on Sunday to see the other.

I used papers from Authentique - Cherish, and a bit of everything from my stash.

After stamping, the K-design stamp was clear heat embossed.

The corners was made with the smallest Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles die. After embossing I cut each of them into two pieces and then sponged them with Inka Gold.

I think you've seen everything here now :)
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Two Lovely Pockets

onsdag 21 augusti 2013

Hello friends!
It's already Wednesday, school has started here in Sweden,and I can not keep up with the days ...
Still, I try to find time to show this Two Pocket Treat Holder in a short post today.

I used left over papers, mostly from Graphic 45 and PION design.

Around the edges I taped with Tim Holtz Tissue tape.

I cut out the images with a couple of Spellbinders dies,
and colored in some Seam binding with Distress inks.

A small chocolate bar got room on one side, and on the other a card to write a message on.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

On The Wild Side

torsdag 15 augusti 2013

Hi there, and happy Thursday!
Lovely to have you stopped here with me.
Today I have another fun project to show, and it´s a bag card with sweet Henry from Whiff Of Joy.

I colored him with my Copics, and made a scene by using a couple of old stamps for the the grass and the paw prints.

I just discovered Stampendous fantastic embossing pouders/fragments and got them to look like pebbles /sand. They are so fun to play with!

I have used papers from Prima Marketing the Nature Garden collection, and combined them with some PION design papers on the inside.

I also used several other different stamps for the inside. The sentiment was clear heat embossed, and the fence was cut out with a Memory Box die.
I think it may be enough like this, no more details...
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs, Birgit

New Fantastic Folding

tisdag 13 augusti 2013

Morning blogcreatures!
Yep, this is an absolutely stunning card folding that I have found.
And there is no need for glue or scissors, just a two-sided sheet of paper to do it.

Here you have place for many tags or small gifts like gift cards, money, cinema tickets, lottery tickets, or even a small chocolate cake.

For this one I used the "Secret Garden" paper from Prima Marketing, Fairy Rhymes Collection.
I used several different stamps, and stuff from my stash. The text on the inside was made on my old typewriter, which is still going strong.

You can see the card folding description here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Just Because

tisdag 6 augusti 2013

Hi everyone!
It is hard to find some time to craft when the summer flies, and I also try to take a short vacation. I will be away from the blog for a couple of days ahead.
But today I have a easel card to show, that I made with Nestabilities Labels One dies, and the lovely "The joy of spring" papers from Reprint.

I realy like those papers. The sentiment on the tag were made with a stamp from Whimsy Stamps "Film Strip Sentiments". Then I cut it out with one Magnolia Doohickeys die.

I also stamped the word "Fly", and gave it a layer Glossy Accents. I addhered a couple of pins together with some flowers, ribbons and this beautiful little bird charm.

And a little winged friend ...
I also used this stamp "When I count my joys, I count you twice" from Rox Stamps.

I hope you like it. Wish you all a nice Tuesday!
Hugs, Birgit
