Vintage Style Card

Happy Sunday y'all!

This weekend I told my husband that I am so tired that I am physically unable to go out anywhere and entertain the kids. Of course, staying in for the whole weekend was like a dream (at least for me), but the kids wanted to do something (who doubted, right?!), so yesterday (on Saturday) we didn't have a choice but to take them out somewhere... Today, on the other hand, I insisted on not going out anywhere and had a relaxing day in my studio, just sorting through some of the supplies, scheduling a couple future posts on the blog, watching videos on You Tube and also having fun putting together a simple card in a vintage style.

Sweet Stella from Leo Mammy sent me some gorgeous chipboard and I was very itchy to use it on my projects. I have an additional post already scheduled for October 21, where I will share a couple more cards with the stunning botanical chipboard designs by the Leo Mammy brand, so stay tuned :)

Although there are so many ways in which you can alter the decorative chipboard, I tend to be a fan of a more "natural" look. For that reason I decided to color the chipboard pieces with the Vintage Photo Distress Stain and add some gilding wax along the edges. I think it tured out quite nice!

I also like the look of the label on the card; it is attached to the muslin ruffle with the help of the bulb pin:

The papers and the cutout elements that I used for creating this card are from the digital kits that I buy quite often these days and use them for making journals. Vintage style has always been my favorite. 

That's all from me for today. I hope you have had a nice Sunday too. Talk to you again tomorrow :)

Hexagon Autumn Themed Box - La-La Land Crafts October 2021 Release

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you one of the projects that I taught during the La-La Palooza Craft Retreat this year - a hexagon autumn themed box, which was created using some of the products from the La-La Land Crafts October release

The box is easy to make, and having so many autumn themed die cut elements on hand makes it even easier to embellish. I made a bunch of such boxes which I plan to give away to my daughters' teachers at school. Depending on the way you choose to embellish the boxes, they can be used either for Halloween or Thanksgiving.

The new large Pumpkin Die is fun to create with, since at can be used not only as a diecut flat element, but also die cut several times, separated to sections/slices and layered one on top of the other for extra dimension:

I love the acorn die and the leaves from the new Autumn Things Die. The papers that I used for embellishing my box are from the new Happy Fall Y'all Paper Pack.

Just in case you need a full list of the LLLC products that I used for my today's project, you can find it below:
Happy Fall Y'all Paper Pack
Double Stitched Hexagon Die
Pierced Scalloped Circles Die
Double Stitched Circles Die
Pumpkin Die
Autumn Things Die
Happy Fall* Rubber Stamp

I hope this gives you an idea for creating Halloween or Thanksgiving treat boxes of your own. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Junk Jurnal Folder Insert using Craspire Wax Seals - Video Tutorial

Hello dear all!

A bit over a month ago I was contacted by a company called "Craspire". They suggested a little collaboration using a few of their products and I gladly agreed.

Craspire sell wax seals and lots of other stationery items, you can check them out here>

The first tutorial featuring their wax seals was published on my YT channel in August, and today I am finally posting the second tutorial

In my free from making cards time, I LOVE to create journals. The more details, hidden spots and inserts a journal has, the better. 

Let me show you how to make a folder insert which can not only be a wonderful addition to a journal, but also a great project for a happy mail exchange. I hope you like it!

I have used many digitals from my own stash, as well as other kits and printables from the stores mentioned below:

The recent video tutorial is below -
