sew it :)

it’s the 15th! which meeeans – the new Bastel-Traum challenge is online 🙂 this month we’d like to see some stitches/fabric/sewing on your projects, and over at Creative Friday we’d love to see some stars 🙂 hop over to see what the BT and  CF design team created 🙂 I pimped a regular kraft colored gift bag – used some spray paint, sequins and some twine to sew the cloud 🙂

as of last Tuesday, I’m an aunt 🙂 that’s right 🙂 and also a Godmother +happy+ baby Nino is SO cute 🙂

Challenges:
CAS on Sunday: sequins
KIS: baby
Stamping with Dragon: anything but a card

animals :)

Hej y’all 🙂 we’d love to see some cute animals over at Bastel-Traum this month – hop over to play along and be eligible to win the prize 🙂
I used a cute birdie from The Alley Way Stamps – I also purchased the matching SVG files – I think it’s super awesome that they offer that! If they would be dies I wouldn’t have bought them, but svgs are always a good idea and not as pricy AND they don’t need a separate drawer in the craft room (I didn’t have enough space anyways) 😀 if you don’t know what to do with those stamps hop over to the TAWS Blog or Pinterest to check out their inspirational work 🙂
Happy Crafting Y’All :))

Challenges:
MilkCoffee:  add stripes
Eureka Stamps: things with wings
Ruby’s Rainbow: for the birds
As You Like It: favorite 2 embellishments –> I love using pearls and twine on my projects because they come in so many colors and both make the those handcrafted projects so unique. They add a little bit to a card for instance but most of the times you can’t go overboard with them, and that’s what I love 🙂

happy birthday Jona :)

Jona is turning 5 today – unbelievable 😀 I had the pleasure to watch him grow over the past couple of years and he is an amazing little boy 
therefore, here’s my birthday card for him – with a cool, personalized background 🙂 — because that’s what we’d like to see over at Creative Friday — handmade patterned paper 🙂
