"Fabrika Decoru" DT Application

Hello dear readers!

This will be a quick post with an application for the great "Fabrika Decoru" Design Team. I had been a member of the team and had to leave it because of the move to another country, but now I am back to crafting and would be happy to have a chance to return to "Fabrika Decoru" as well.

I love everything about paper and unusual constructions, I love to create cards and mini albums too. I adore the designs of the paper collection which "Fabrika Decoru" has to offer, and during the recent years  I have been watching how the brand grew, flourished and expanded, finally reaching the international stage which is absolutely amazing, I believe that it will only continue growing the same way and I am happy to assist in spreading the love to "Farika Decoru's" products among the fellow crafters and the readers of my blog.

Below you can find a few of my projects created with the "Fabrika Decoru's" products.

You can find me through the following Social Media channels (other than here on the blog):

I wish myself and all of the participants good luck!

Penny's Paper Doll Family - Play Set and Mini Album + Tutorial

Hello everyone!

I couldn't hold myself off creating a play set with the paper dolls using the ‘Penny’s Paper Doll Family’ collection by Graphic 45, but I wanted it to be functional too, so I combined the play set idea and a mini album together.

An album has 6 dimensional envelope-style pages for at least 10 pictures each, as well as a little vellum envelope which holds all the cut out figures of the dolls and their accessories. The envelopes are bound to the spine with the twine and the whole construction is flexible and easy to flip through. The album has a fabric cover and is kept closed with a ribbon.

There is a video tutorial for this project and I hope you will enjoy creating a similar album. In the beginning of the video you will also find an overview of the book.

The decorative chipboard that I used throughout the album is from Studio Prosto Nebo.

The video tutorial can be found here:

Some more pictures of the finished project follow:

Penny's Paper Doll Family 8x8 Pad

Winter Mini Album with Botany Winter by Fabrika Decoru

Hello dear friends!

You cannot imagine how many projects I am working on right now, to make up for my two months absence from the blog and from my design teams. Unfortunately I cannot show them to you yet, since posting dates depend on the posting days over the official blogs :)

Anyway, today I would like to share a mini album which was created with the Fabrika Decoru "Botany Winter" collection.

I like how it turned out and how this paper looks, with all the pine cones,slices of oranges and poinsettias.

I've added jingle bells to the ribbon closure, don't they look just in place there? :)

Thanks for visiting!
