Gift Packaging

Hi there!

Today is challenge day at 613 Avenue Create and our optional twist is about Gift Packaging. This week I am showcasing a stamp from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. They are too cute and there is such a big variety of them. This time I decided to decorate a bag to put a present for my grandma, because she loves Sunbonet dolls.

Hope you like it :)

In this bag I used a recycled paper bag, 
wrapping paper stitched on white paper to cover the shop brand, 
a doily and some rafia.

Then I coloured the digital stamp with my Copic markers and I made a tag 
with some embossed card, washi tape, sequins, a tag sentiment and a bell.

Copic markes used:
E000, E00, E011, E21, R22, R24, R27, R29, R59,
G21, G94, G99, C1, C3, B00, Y02, Y06, Y08.

Poinsettia flower cut and shaped by hand using a file from Fred She Said as a template.

Come and join the fun!!

Hi there!

Today I'm going to show you some ornaments that I made for putting on my Christmas tree. Although now that the tree is up and watching how keen is my little flower at picking all the ornaments out of it, I think I will use them somewhere else =P.

Advent Calendar 2014

Hi there!

It is time for another challenge at 613 Avenue Create. It is challenge #100!! And the optional twist is to create a calendar. Because of the date, my first thought went to an Advent Calendar.

This is not a tradition in this area of Spain, but it was a tradition for my hubby. So, last year, we spoke about making one, and at the end teamed up to improvise one in a few hours on November 30th, after the kids went to bed.

No need to say that my sweet little boy (who is five now) loved it, and this year in august he was already asking when could he have it again. My little flower (who is two) doesn't remember last year, and since I started putting it up, doesn't stop asking if she can have one. Only one? she says =) (poor little thing <3<3<3)

Anyway, today I'm showcasing Christmas Papers from Fred She Said, and for decoration I also used a poinsettia done with their digi which I had from a previous challenge. Thank you!!

All the little packets are stitched together. All the decorations except the choco Santas are handmade. =)

Hope you like it!

Come and join the fun!

Happily Sewing Again

Hi there!

Today I here to show you a wall hanger that I made for my aunty who owns a sewing shop. 
It is not déjà vu, she asked me if I could make this card again for her, but much bigger for hanging in her shop. Of course scaling from 6" square to 14" was not that easy, because the same embellishments didn't have the same effect, and some of the ones that I used before I didn't had any more.

Also, this time, for saving her some time. I decided to print the pre-coloured image instead of colouring it myself. You can't guess how many times I regretted it, because despite the quality of the image being great, it was a real pleasure colouring her for the first time and I missed it this time.
However, I had a fun time making most of the embellishments myself. 

And here there is the result. I hope you like it like we did =)

In this card: Vintage Seamstress by The Paper Shelter. MME's, Stella & Rose, patterned paper. Buttons, ribbons, lace, flat back pearls, paper flowers, crochet flowers, scissors charm, doily, liquid pearls, flat back pearls, frantage, etc. everything from That Craft Place.

Magic Flakes

Hi there!

Today I'm showing a card that combines two of my favourite elements: Copic and crochet. This card actually grew in my head for a few hours and kept me awake out of my usual time for a few nights before I saw it finished. But I am very happy with the final result. And I hope it inspires you to come and join our challenge at Copic Spain, Anything goes with Copic.

Hope you like it too.

In this card: Digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. White and dark blue card, computer printed sentiment, crochet snowflakes, rinestone, stickles, distress inks and embossing enamels.
Colouring details to  be found here.

Snoflakes crocheted by me following this instructions, more or less.
I am already thinking of other places to put them =P
