A Mini Cross Stitch/Sewing Organizer

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all staying safe and take care of yourself [in the light of all the craziness happening in the world right now]. 

I can't believe that I wrote a draft for this post on Dec 4, and yet only now I get to edit and publish it. A project that I want to share is not related to paper, but to sewing and stitching. This is another hobby of mine, that takes over me from time to time. 

A little sewing organizer that you can see below, was created based on a tutorial from @_oksanafillipova_.  Oksana has a group on VK - Уютное рукоделие от Оксаны Филипповой, where she posts new tutorials, as well as shares her beautiful sewing works and projects.

The organizer measures 4.5" X 6.5" folded, and 6.5" X 13.5" unfolded.  

I am using this handy organizer all the time, the size is just right to be taken along for stitching outside the house (especially while waiting at the kids' activities).

I had a tiny scrap of fabric left, so I used it for making a super tiny pincushion,

Thank you so much everyone for stopping by! Take care!

Saturated Canary - Banner

Hello dear visitors!

Do you remember how crazy popular Saturated Canary digis were? I still have quite a few of them saved on my computer from back when one could either purchase them or win them in different challenges. From time to time I like to sit and create cards with those old images. 

By the way, Krista is back to selling digis!! Not the same old ones, but there is a lot of new cute stuff too. 

The digital image that I used for my today's card is called "Banner" {it is an old image}. I cannot find any cards by other crafters, to make sure that the name is correct. 

I used a lot of different die cut elements, just as I like!! There are many layers on this card too!!

The flowers that you see on the card, are from I Am Roses.

I absolutely adore the image and had such fun coloring it with Copics.

Saturated Canary, Banner, Layered Card

Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000
Hair: E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
Banner: W5, E31, E30
Roses: R59, R46, R43
            YG99, YG97, YG63

I hope you find this card inspiring enough and wish you a great crafty weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday - Monday Inspiration @La-La Land Crafts

How are you all doing, dear visitors!?

Last week of January is here and we want to dedicate it to a 'Birthday' inspiration theme at the La-La Land Crafts blog.

 The card below was created for a 6 year old girl, my daughter's friend who is turning 6 this week. I hope she likes unicorns :)

Below is the list of the La-La Land Crafts products that I used:

The stamp set with the unicorns is still one of my favorites, although is was released more than a year ago. I just love how graceful they turned out! 

My medium of choice for coloring the stamped image of a unicorn were (as usual) Copic markers. The colors are listed below:
Body: W3, E42, E40
Main: W3, R20, R01, R000
Horn: BG18, BG72, BG32

Thanks for sticking around! I hope you have a lovely week!

New Year Inspiration with La-La Land Crafts DT

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

I hope you had a lovely time with your friends and family during the holiday season {I know I did}. The celebrations ended in a blink of an eyes and now it's time to get back to the daily routines, including some crafting too!

Today I want to share a one-page-mini-album, which was created with the La-La Land Crafts products (the links may be found below):

My daughter had a New Year Party with her friends from Gymnastics Program (which she has been attending for a year now). The girls had a Secret Santa gift exchange. To top off the gift that we prepared for our gift buddy, I included this little album too. 

Since the year of 2020 is a year of a rat, this clear stamp set from La-La Land Crafts couldn't suit the occasion better. All of the little mice are taken from the "Caroling We Go" set. 

The construction of the album is based on a really old tutorialwhich (I bet) lots of you must have already seen and been familiar with. 

Once you flip the closure with a skating mouse to the top, there are snowy hills and stitched trees which can be seen on the front cover:

Inside the album, there are three sections:

The central section flips to the bottom ,revealing a place for a picture:

There is a belly band with a couple of post cards too. To create them I used the stamp set called "Christmas Postcard":

Inside the pocket on the right of the album, I added two Luggage Tags:

I am still in love with the Half Doily die from the November 2019 Release:

Besides the numerous dies which can still be found at the La-La Land Crafts online store, I used some of the older dies as well. For example, this funky Christmas tree and  a filigree snowflake on the left flap of the album:

LLLC Products:

For coloring the cute mice, I used the Copic colors listed below:
Greys: C6, C4, C2, C0
Reds: T6, E09, E07, R24
Blues: B39, B37, B34
Mice Noses: R85, R00

Thank you guys for sticking around! 
I wish all of you a great year of success, creativity, love and health! Sending warm hugs to all of you!
