Last minute Christmas wreath

Hello blogcreatures,

I always have a Christmas wreath on the front door. I never buy, because I can create pretty much anything. But this Christmas I made a simple pine cone wreath. Just in case there is some thieves... I got some pine cones from a friend. I had no idea what to create...until I realised I have no wreath. So here it is...


To make ths wreath , all you need to do:

  • cut out a big open circle. I used heavy chipboard.
  • place the pine cones around the circle and glue them on, using hot glue gun
  • to create the little santa : use one pine cone for the body, a small circle ball for the head. For the hat and scarf, use felt. You can draw the moustache and eyes , by using a black marker. 
  • paint the pine cones with some acrylic paint
  • finish off the wreath with a big double bow 
Happy Holidays 
&
Happy New Year !

Countdown to Christmas Advent Village

Hello blogcreatures,

Sometimes I don't understand why my american and english people have the Christmas tree up already....and is just the first week  of December. Where I live we only put the tree up on the Christmas eve day and take that off after January 6. Oh well , this is new to me. How about you? When do you start decorating for Christams?

One of my clients, asked for a Countdown  Christmas Advent. She really loved the Advent Village creation from the Craft Stamper December issue 2013 , created by Gail Milburn.



Above you can see my creation.  I'm really happy with the result. But if you want to make one yourself, be prepared. If you don't have the right dies and materials , this will take a while. Anyways, I had a good time making this for my client.  If you have any questions please let me know. Have a great day!

Morning blogcreatures,

Where is the old beautiful Christmas spirit? Christmas is no longer my favorite holiday...Sad but true. But that doesn't mean I will stop making Christmas projects. Today over at SDC we have a new challenge : Early Christmas.

Sewing machine

Hello blogcreatures,

I'm not in the best shape these days, but nothing can stop me from doing my work. Today I have a new 3D project to share. I made a sewing machine, just perfect for my sewing mini tools. As always, I don't have or will make a tutorial, because I don't work with templates. However, I will try , maybe in the near future to create digital templates.


Materials I used: heavy chipboard, pattern paper, cardstock, washi tape, circle punch, double sided tape.
If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments below. Have a wonderful day!

UPDATE:
Here is my digital ''sketch/ template''.

Carousel \2

Hello blogcreatures,

Back in 2011 I made a carousel with just a few supplies. I find it really hard making things sometimes, just because I don't have everything for my project. Yes, this is really annoying , but I have to work with anything. So I made a new carousel. I must tell, I'm really proud of this one. 




I take my time...so this carousel took about 8-9 hours.  This is a special carousel because I can put my jewlery or secret notes inside the box.  The mini clothespin is for small messages or mini pictures. Voila! This is my creation for today! Hope you like it! Have a great day!

Ingredients:
  • 1 full banana
  • 2 tbsp of homemade raspberry jam ( or fresh jam)

Morning blogcreatures,

One layer? So simple but so complicated. Today over at SDC we have the new challenge for you called: One layer. I love layers but to be honest, sometimes we need something clean and simple.

Handmade tools holder

Hello blogcreatures,

If you know me, then you know I love making my own things. A while ago I saw a great tools holder, but it was way too expensive. So I made my own tools holder.
When I make ''creative projects'' I don't work with templates. I just sketch what I want to make and then measure and cut. 

 For this holder, I used heavy chipboard, black cardstock to put the walls together, double sided tape, pattern paper and washi tape. I think I spent over 5 hours, but I really like the result! Now I have everything organized!

Forever young

Hello blogcreatures,

Masculine cards can be a real challenge for us. But the question is. Why? They must be simple cards, but ...Oh well! I made a masculine birthday card for a very special person.

This is a wiper card with a hidden message. Here is an advice from me to you. If you want to make a masculine card and you don't know how to, then set the color palette : black, brown, blue, grey, green. I think this works the best!
I hope you like this card.  Just a quick update. I have a new DIGI stamps collection over at Lollyrot Illustration and stamps. Please stop by and let me know what you think of my new design. You can win some new digi designs. Have a great day!

Who doesn't like owls? Especially cute baby owls. I do!  TOOO SWEET! Sometimes they can be creepy but they work great for a Halloween project. Lia Stampz has a great owl digital stamp called Kiki. I simply love it and had to use it for my Halloween project.

We have a new challenge over at Lia Stampz , called: Spooky Bingo.  For this challenge I decided to go with the : Shaped card / Purple/ Die Cut  choice. Check out Lia's Blog for more details. Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a great day!

Wishes

Hello blogcreatures,

I can not belive how time flies! The cold weather is back , so that means  Christmas is around the corner ( laughing). But until then , I have a nice tag to share. I made the tag below using Princess of my life  digi stamp. Sometimes I like to keep the creation pretty simple because the main image should be the focal point. You can check out Alberto's digi stamps over here.
I must buy more core cardstock. Simply love it! Really great product!  A quick tip. If you don't have the mood or the right stamp for your sentiment, use your own handwriting.

Ribbon roses

Hello blogcreatures,

I'm not a big flower lover. I like paper flowers and handmade flowers but that's all.  However, yesterday made some ribbon roses. To be honest...it was hard work ( laughing). Oh boy! I used some ribbon scraps to make 3 roses. I really don't have a rule on how to make them. I just folded...folded and again folded. But the result is pretty cute!
Not sure if I'm gonna be making a video tutorial. I don't think you will really understand making process. But who knows. Maybe I'm gonna try. For now, enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think in the comments below.
