You Inspire Me ~Webster`s Pages~

Hi there!
I`m sharing today my last creation for September which is featuring one of the old collections from Webster`s Pages but definitely one of my favourites. It`s all about "WONDERFALL" today :-)
Love everything about this collection.
My layout is based as usually on white card stock which was treated with various mediums.
The big wooden bird cage comes from a brand Artemio.

{Doily & Chevron} unmounted stamp
  • The word "you" was fussy cut out the pattern paper "Count your blessings
  • The word "me" is part of an alphabet sticker border. I cut out only the two letters - "m" & "e"

  • Layers of fussy cut patterns, stamping, masking, hand-stitching, etc.

  • The tiny butterfly was part of a sticker. I cut it out and used as an embellishment.

I hope you enjoyed my layout today! Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!

Have a great day!

Hi there!
My post today is dedicated to Imaginarium Designs and Prima Marketing products....and yes, you can see a touch of Sizzix as well :-)
I found these two photos on my phone and printed them right away. Love seeing my kids enjoying each other's company and I had to preserve that moment on a scrapbook page.

  • I used here the big and middle oval frames to frame my photos.
  • N.B. I cut out the inside swirls of both frames!
  • The chippies were painted with Glimmer Glam, then sanded and finally I added white acrylic paint.

  • The cute little biddy was stamped, colored in and fussy cut. Then used as an embellishment.

  • The word "LOVE" was painted with Gesso and then I added touches of baby blue acrylic paint.

  • Because I wanted to have a "playful" title I treated the phrase "Brother & Sister" differently.
  • The words "brother" and "sister" were separated from each other and the sign "&" as well.
  • As a base I painted with gesso. The sign "&" was treated exactly as the oval frames.
  • The two words have different touches of paint - black, grey, yellow and partly modelling paste.

This is my second layout. I scrapped here a photo of my son, Alexander, taken a few months ago. I used here one of Prima Marketing`s latest collections - {Firefly} which is totally adorable!

  • The hot air balloon was inked with pink and blue ink.
  • I added partly "Stickles: for some glittery look.

  • The white leaves were hand made by me from artistic air dry clay.
  • I cut out the rectangle from the circle chipboard border.
  • Then I cut the border in the middle and I used only one half for this layout.
  • The chipboard I used here was treated once again with gesso, different colours Glimmer Glam and there are also some touches of modelling paste.
  • I love adding modelling paste because of the texture it gives...

A "Hello" Card ~GDT I HEART {ippity}~

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing my last project I created for I Heart {ippity} where I`ve been guest-designing for the last three months. I must admit that time flew away rather quickly and I enjoyed every single moment creating with all the awesome and so versatile stamp sets!
Thank you, Mrs Heather Flaherty, for having me as a guest-designer and also BIG THANK YOU for your patience with me :-)!
And this is the card I created for today`s blog post at I Heart {ippity} .
I used the adorable stamp set "Bloom & Simplify"
  • The flower was stamped first directly on the card. Then it was stamped once again but this time on a piece of pattern paper. After that I cut out only the bloom and adhered it on top of the other one by using foam pad so it`ll give more dimension.
  • The background text was stamped on one of the punched strips.

Thank you for visiting!
Happy weekend!
