Inspiration Monday - Travel - La-La Land Crafts


"Travel" is out theme for this week at the La-La Land Crafts blog, so I decided to use Marci with Suitcase Rubber Stamp on my today's card:

I made this card in the style of one of my previous cards, with white being a prevailing color. I like how these cards look.

Marci was colored with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000 + R20
Eyes: G99, G94
Hair: E47, E44, E43, E42
Hat Boots: RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21 + R01
Dress: B39, B37, B34, B32 + BG23
Suitcase: E27, E25, E3, E1
Yellow: E37, Y19

I really adore the new tiny suitcase die, I used it for the first time today. Gluing the tiny elements down to the suitcase's base was fun. Just look at the super tiny strap buckles!

The stitched clouds and the "sun smiles" dies are also perfect!

Here is the list of products that I used:

ATC Cards with Craspire Wax Seal Embellishments


I have a short video up on my channel, where I share a way of embellishing ATC cards with wax seal embellishments. I love making ATC cards, they always "save" me when I don't feel like creating something more serious or when I am a bit under the weather inspirationwise.

The wax seals that I used are from Craspire. If you want to have a look at the specific stamps that I showed in the video, the links are below:
Flower Wax Seal Stamps

For cutting the hydrangea flowers out and getting rid of the wax edges, you'll need a pair of sharp tipped scissors. Cutting through feels super satisfying (like cutting soap) 😉

Now to the video. You can either click on the video window below, or copy and paste this link into your browser -
I hope you enjoy!

Botanical Journal - Inspired by @Journallyours


A journal that I'd like to show you today was created back in February. Just like a few other porjects, it has been patiently waiting for its turn to get photographed. I am very fond of how it turned out! 

The flaps inside the journal are inspired by Ruth from @journallyours. I have found Ruth's You Tube channel at first, and only after that followed her on IG. She is so talented! I am sure some of you stumbled upon Ruth's gorgeous embroideries on Pinterest, they are very detailed and absolutely beautiful. She also has a very interesting way of using acetate for creating pockets and see through windows. 

I was so inpoired by her works, that I tried to create a journal with lots of windows, pockets and flaps too. There are no embroideries in it :) I can't even imagine how lond it takes Ruth to complete a journal full of embroidered pockets and journalling cards. I am still not there, for sure.

I did embroider a floral motif for the spine and made a moth/butterfly for the front cover. 
I hope you like it!

On the pages of the journal I used several digital kits, some of them were from Vectoria Designs, some from RoxyCreations, some from Tracy Fox and lots of others.

Since there are numerous pictures of the pages below, I will keep their thumbnails small. You can enlarge each photo by clicking it. 

I am very thankful to Ruth for inspiration and can't wait to see her next journals. 

Thanks for visiting me today!
