Window Box Tutorial

Hello dear all!

I have finally finished editing the first part of a new tutorial for creating a Window Box. I intend to make etither a notebook/journal or a mini album to go inside the box, using the Graphic 45 "Woodland Friends" collection, but for now, only the first part of the video is ready and I am more than happy to share it wth you on my YT channel. 

This box is a remake of my old project from 2017. You can find the pictures of the box which was created for the Studio 75 design team here.

The "revisited" version of the box is deeper and slightly bigger.

If you get to make a box like this, please tag me on Instagram using the hashtag #ClayGuana. I would love to see what you create!

The tutorial may be viewed on YouTube if you click here>>>>.

Thanks for stopping by!

Figure Skater Marci - La-La Land Crafts

Hello all!!

I made a card for the Monday Inspiration over the La-La Land Crafts blog, but for a couple of reasons I wasn't able to show it on the official company blog.

The card turned out so nice though, that I would still like to share it with you. In my opinion, Marci Figure Skater is perfect for winter birthday cards! 

Marci was colored with Copic markers:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000 + R20
Hair: E18, E15, E13, E11
Outfit: BV08, V25, V22, V20
            V09, V06, V04
            C6, B26, B24, B23, B21
            W7, W5, W3, W1

The rest of the LLLC products that I used include the below:
Stitched Nested Circles Die

The candle die that you see on the front of my card was a new die from the recent La-La Palooza Retreat, and will be available for purchase in the LLLC store later this year. 

May you have a sunny winter day! Take care!

Trapezium Purse - Tutorial

Hello everyone!

Back in 2018 I created a Trapezium Purse and an album, and started working on a tutorial. I filmed 2 parts of the tutorial, but did not finish the third one, in which we were supposed to create an album for the purse. 

The two parts of the video tutorial have been safely stored on my computer since then, while I hoped to shoot the process of making a matching album. In the beginning of 2021 I decided that it was time to post what I had filmed so far :) I think it is a really nice project and an album can be easily created by any of you independently. The only thing you should bear in mind while making it, are the measurements - 6" X 6" covers and a 2" spine.

Part 1 of the tutorial guides you through the process of creating the base of the purse:

Part 2 shows how to create a fabric flap, create a handle and assemble the purse. 

You will also need a template for creating a fabric flap. You can download it below:

I hope you have a great crafty rest of your day!!! Thanks for watching!
