Christmas Bells

Hello, dear friends! Thank you for your visits and welcome to my new followers.
Today I would like to share another Christmas card. In fact three versions of a same card.

You can find the tutorial for branches on Mihaela's blog. I just love making them.

A close up of my little bells :)

And the other two versions of Christmas bell card.

With red bells and...

...with quilled ribbon.

My favourite is the one with "golden" bells. And yours?

Wish you a wonderful and creative week!

Origami Christmas tree

The first Christmas card I would like to share is with an origami Christmas tree.

I used a special paper to give it a festive air. You can find the tutorial for the tree here.

I decorated the Christmas tree with quilled tight coils.

A shiny star is the final touch of this CAS Christmas card.

Wish you a wonderful and creative week!

Baby boy photo album

I just finished my first order of Christmas cards, but today I would like to share a photo album made for our nephew, Daniel. It will be a loooong post because I have  lots of pictures :)

 On the cover I played a little with my distress ink. The embellishments used for the album are from a paper craft photo album kit.

 A sneak-peak inside the album :)

On the inside front cover I made a waterfall mini album. 

The video tutorial for the waterfall album I used can be found here.

And these are the pages. Not too many embellishments on them. I like to keep them simple, like I do with my greetings cards :)

On the inside back cover I made an accordion photo album.

And these are the inside pages of the mini accordion album.

 Each page of the album has an insert page for photos or written memories.

Thanks to Ginger from My Sisters Scrapper for sharing the tutorial for making this album. You can find the first part of it here.

I made it with all my love for little Daniel and enjoyed every minute spent in making this album! I didn't think that I will love scrap-booking so much :) This mean that you will see another album here soon.

Wish a wonderful and creative day!

Thank you very much for your visits and kind words! This time a quilled flowers arrangement in my favourite colours.

And, of course, with an embossed background. Definitely my style :)

This time I used rhinestones for the centre of flowers and I'm in love with the light effect they give the card.
A little ribbon is always a nice touch, don't you think?

Because it's an all occasion card, I will try this layout using different colours. 

Wish you a wonderful day!

Flowers in a pot

Stamping, distressing, cutting and... quilling. All these on a card!

I had to try my cutting dies and distress ink. The little butterfly is stamped and than cut with scissors.

It's not really my style, I like to think I have one :), but I love how it turned out.

Wish you a wonderful Sunday!

A musical card

I almost couldn't believe that I didn't post anything for six months! But looks like time is just flying. I made some cards during this "flying" time, cards that I would love to share with you.

My birthday gift this year was a Sizzix Big Shot Machine, a wonderful gift from my family and friends. I love most the embossing folders. Yes, still in love with the embossed background :)

And I love distress ink!  The guitar is made using a very nice template found on Sarah's blog. Thank you, Sarah, for sharing this template.

The centre and  pegs of the guitar are quilled. I made this card for my brother's birthday and I can now tell you that he loved it.

Wish a wonderful week!

Happy Easter

 Wish you a Peaceful and Happy Easter!

Because I love making stitching cards, I ordered a very useful kit from Erica Fortgens Webshop. The beautiful golden thread is from the same kit. Embroidery on paper is much easier with proper tools, at least in my opinion.

The beautiful pattern for the card is from Ann's Paper Webshop. Now she has a store where the patterns are for download only. I am very happy she decided to have this kind of store! You have the pattern you want in a few minutes.

And a close-up of my Easter card. Wish you all a wonderful and blessed Sunday!

A little bit late for Women's Day, but I still wanted to wish you a wonderful season to you all! May be the beginning of spring or fall:)

I received a beautiful snowdrops bouquet and is my joy to share it with you. 
Wish you a very creative week!

Baby girl card I

Today I would like to share one of the three cards I made for a newborn baby girl.

My view for a pink baby rattle:) And, because it's for a little girl, I used a small rhinestone in the middle of the rattle.

To be honest, it took me a while to get the crimped paper so round and still crimped. I tried rolling the paper on the slotted tool, but you should do that just for the start. Then, roll the paper using only the fingers.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today. Wish you a wonderful weekend!

Quilling lilac

Today I would like to share the card made for my mother's birthday. Her favourite flowers are lilac and lily of the valley. I am saving the lily of the valley for next year or maybe 8 of March :)

A beautiful flower in a nice box from Mihaela. Thank you!

These two photos show the real colour of the paper I used. 

The inspiration for the card is the beautiful lilac made by Inna.

Wish you a wonderful Sunday!
