Happy New 2023 Year!

Hello everyone!

The year of 2022 is almost over and we are all looking forward to the coming 2023. 
We all have our dreams, our hopes and plans... I wish each and everyone of you only the best! 

May this year bring peace to Ukraine!  

I truly hope that people can be kinder to each other, less hostile, more willing to help the ones in need. 
I wish all of you good health, lots of love from family and friends and endless inspiration to each crafter who is reading this.

Thanks for visiting my blog and supporting me with your warm comments and likes either on my You Tube channel or here. It means the world to me! Cheers to 2023!!!

Here are some cards that I created for my friends. I used the digital papers from the Love Junk Journals on Etsy, as well as some of the dies from Tim Holtz and La-La Land Crafts. My absolute favorite die of the season was Layered Poinsettia Die. The fabric flowers on my cards were handmade using this stunning die.

3... 2..... 1.....
Happy New Year!!!!

Inspiration Monday - Use New Release - La-La Land Crafts


It is right about time to start working on some Christmas and winter cards. For my card today I have colored a cute bear from the Silent Night Clear Stamp Set.

I have used quite a few die cut elements (the links to then will be written below), and also created a cotton fabric flower using the Layered Poinsettia Die

I love the pattern of the paper which is behind the bear, so classy!

Here are the links to the products that I used for creating this card:

La-La Land Crafts - Use New (November 2022) Release


Monday is for card makes with the La-La Land Crafts products :)
A card that I ant to share with you today features a sweet penguin from the Waddle On Rubber Stamp. I love him and his little friend (they come as a pair in a set):

Coloring him was a pure joy! I like a lot how he turned out. I tried to match the dies that I used to the wintery theme as well. The floes, the Santa's sleigh and of course the poinsettias were just perfect for this purpose.

I have created my own fabric poinsettias with the help of a die - Layered Poinsettia Die. THe centers of each of the flower layers were colored with the "Broken China" Distress Ink. So pretty!

Here are the paper, stamp and the dies that I used:

The penguin was colored with Copics:
Black: N9, N7, N5
Light Grey: N5, BV25, BV23, BV20, N0, W00
Scarf: B39, B37, B34, B32
Hat: B32 B01, B0000
Beak + Feet: E57, YR24, Y19

I hope you have a great beginning of the week and thank you for coming over!!
