CUYL – christmas :) — summer :)

For the next two weeks, the challenge is
Christmas in Summer

Yeees, time will fly, you’ll see!

You have time to link your project until Friday, August 31st, midnight. The first entry is, as always, eligible for the prize.

and here is my lil card – simple – but I used the colorful and fun Holly Jolly Echopark paper 🙂

.. it’s summer .. which means, sun, heat, beach, vacation, popsicles 🙂
because my summer mood is a lil bit gone so I tried to get it back by making a summer-like popsicle card 🙂
I used my cameo again and a looot of washi tape 🙂 hope y’all like it 🙂

party like a rockstar

when I saw this card on the Silhouette blog I instantly knew that I have to try it and so I did – right away 🙂
I love the simple design and the colors – perfect for a guy 🙂
so this is the original version 
and this is mine – I used Lime Twist – I <3 those colors <3, regular kraft and vanilla CS 🙂
sorry about the bad lightning – I took the photo late at night :/

sssoommmeeewhhheeerrreee ..

.. over the ..



we loved clicking through all your fantastic creations last week, 
and here’s the topic for our next challenge over at Challenge Up Your Life ..
we want y’all to create something rainbowy for the next two weeks – don’t forget to link it on time – deadline is July 20 midnight 🙂

our sponsor this week is – thank you so much for sponsoring a voucher

and here are my creations

for the rainbow background in this card I used my twinkling h2o colors 🙂 and the cute Stella Strawberry – I absolutely adore her <3
and here I simply cut the letters with my cameo and glued paper squares to the back – later on I realized that I could have inked the edged inside of the letters .. oh well .. next time 😉

no lines

.. don’t show us lines 🙂 .. no lines, no lines 🙂
The new topic over at Challenge Up Your Life is „no lines“.. 
if you don’t know how to start , here is a lil tutorial I found online.
We’d love you to enter your creations until July 7 midnight 🙂 this time our sponsor is .. 
good luck to all of you 🙂
and here is what I created 🙂
I used a simple picture frame and pimped it – my cousin is graduating from High School and I thought it would be a nice present to give her not just money but also something where she can put her graduation photo in 🙂

same problem every year ..

.. what to give my Dad for his birthday .. 


I struggle with that every single year .. no matter if it’s his birthday, if it’s Christmas or Father’s Day .. – I’m just glad that there aren’t more „celebration days“ ;P

My main problems are:

  • I don’t know what he might want – usually he doesn’t want anything
  • I don’t know what he might need – he doesn’t really need anything anyways – he should be happy and blessed because he has me as his daughter +hahahaha+
  • I don’t know if he likes the kind of stuff I give him .. well it usually involves the car he „made from scratch“ – well almost – there was just one sheet metal part from a really old car and he made this out of it:

it looks a little bit different now .. and even cuter when the roof is gone because it’s a convertible .. also the rims are yellow now 🙂 (tiny car- tiny picture :(( sorry – can’t find the better ones)

so I guess he kinda has to like it because it’s made just for him .. unique an special, just like his car .. I already gave him a canvas with pictures of the car .. a layout .. and what I did yesterday:  I painted a flower pot and cut lil yellow cars with my cameo 🙂 nothing fancy but I think it looks cute .. I put some chocolate in there .. he loves chocolate .. so I guess it’s fine even though it’s such a simple gift idea 🙂
