Birthday book

Hi there,

as summer comes slowly to an end I look forward for my kids to go back to school. I do like to spent time with them but honestly sometimes a yucky fall day where I not have to feel guilty not to have to go outside to pull weeds or be soccer mom, I do miss it Smile I know soon enough we all complain how long the winters are in Michigan. You just can’t make it right hahaha


Today I have a little birthday book to show. This is my 3 one. Who would have thought! They are time consuming but the result is well worth it. The little images from the Zodiac Collection are just the perfect fit for this kind of stuff. Just saying Christmas is around the corner… This really does make a nice gift and if you did every month from now on 2 pages its not getting too overwhelming creating and finishing the inside pages.


If you do like the sentiments – they are made with the computer by my sweet and talented friend Tammi from Tropical Dreams. I think she does share those, so just give it a try and leave her a comment on her blog.


Supplies used:

Small 3-ring book binder in white found at Office Depot or Staples
Paper: Magnolia Ink Bubble, Magnolia Ink quilt in blue and green
Magnolia: Pisces Tilda, Magnolia Capricorn – both from the recent Zodiac Collection, Magnolia koi pond
Other: Butterfly die, Fern die, Buttons, Martha Stewart Butterfly and frame mold, Martha Stewart paper clay, hardware charms for the front and as a little bookmark – hanging down at the side of the binder at the moment. Cute little extra detail Smile

Thank you ladies have a blessed day

Big Big Hugs

Hei there..

back from our family VACAY… got crazy here before we left.. one day we have had a Tornado passing trough really close and several power lines came down so our area had no power for almost 4 days.


Here is a little card I have made a few weeks ago. Geez, I made things for the Christmas DooHickey magazine and I feel I am totally out of the loop after our trip.


These are the supplies I used:
Tilda with Leo
Doo Hickey dies: Cloud,swirly butterfly, Tildas tag, fern, heart swirl, So Lovely, Pin Wheel,
shape of card: go Kreate, Tim Holtz Butterfly edge
Papers: Maja
I didn’t use Frantage on the edges – I tried to fake the look with Gold, Platinum, white and Start Dust Stickles
The word hugs is spelled out with a mini Alphabet set from Joann ($1 dollar bin)


PS: sorry for the “wonky” picture I played with some free features over on Picmonkey… I think those little dots are bit weird on Tildas face lol.

Ballerina Dance Squad

Hi there happy Sunday to all of you.

I would like to share with you today the card I made for my mothers 70 birthday. It’s the first time I made a pop up card. wow! all those years of crafting and never came around it. I picked for the card 3 coordinating Tildas. The girls came out in different collections. You can see some slight changes in how Pauline drew the shape of the faces. I really enjoy seeing how the images evolve and change. Lately the eyes became much bigger, so we can add those tiny white dots. cute! However I really do like her VERY old images a lot too.


To decorate the front I used:
Tilda Ballerina with ballet shoes
Dies: Doo Hickey Castle, Spellbinder oval, Doo Hickey leaf, Doo Hickey Tag, Doo Hickey heart swirl, Go Kreate for shape
Embellishments: flowers, tiny pocket, Stickles, heart doily, gauze, lace
Coloring: Copic Markers


for my pop-up images I picked:
Tilda Ballerina with ballet shoes, (baby Tingla ballerina) Prima Ballerina
Sentiment: Stempelglede
all Design papers are by Maja
Dies: Doo Hickey dream tag, Doo Hickey butterfly (cut twice for effect)
Other: gem ribbon, lace flower element gifted from Angie, glitter number stickers from stash, liquid pearl


if you haven't seen it yet, the latest Magnolia Collecting for this year summer 2014 “Pink Lemonade” is now available for Pre-order through Sir Stampalot.

Thanks ladies. lots of love
