Sweet Pea Tilda

Hello ladies, thank you for swinging by.

Things are calming down a bit here. Lucas had a bad accident at school last Thursday morning, he slipped, bumped his head to a brick corner so badly that he shortly passed out. It was really scary. His scull has a bruise from the bottom neck to the top of his head and his ear was swollen 3x the normal size. He is feeling better and i did sent him back to school today.

Its also raining so the guy who should work on the outside of the house decided not to come. Duh!
So as you can see... :-) i used the time to craft a bit. This is what i just finished up.

I choose little Sweet Pea Tilda and used papers all from Magnolia. I even kept the little paper strips so i can tell you exactly what papers they are.
6x6 "With Love" Green Romance is the bottom sheet
6x6 "A Christmas Story" Striped Cloth
6x6 "Summer Memories" Lucky Clover is the third layer
Additional stamps: script, postmark stamp also by Magnolia
Die: Doohickey Magnolia
Stickles is Crystal - it has a nice green sheen to it

Pandora Mothers Day

Hi there, i would like to show you the little card for Mothers Day i made to sent to my mother. Yesterday i posted a bunch of cards to Europe and once again it was jar dropping how much a single card costs these days to ship to Europe! Those new prices are really killing me!

Sentiment: Magnolia "May your day be Special"
Papers: Magnolia - "Shoe Ornament" "something new" -
both patterns are available in 6x6 and 12x12

Gift bag

Hello ladies thank you so much for your visit.
Debbie asked me if i had time to make for her a couple of cards to give her room mom's with the option of adding a Gift card. you can see my first idea was not to make a card but a decorated paper bag. I got once a sweet decorated bag from Tammi and she included a gift card for me and i thought it was so cute. I would give this along with some chocolate.

For the image i went with one of the "neutral" Tilda's from the just recent Collection. The entire Collection is now available and ready to ship at Sir Stampalot.

Additional supplies used:
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley
Dies:Tim Holtz - Butterfly border, Sign (Alterations) Go Create
Papers: pink butterflies, blue/pink paper flamingo flowers, script once upon a time all by Magnolia,
Embellishments: blue Chandelier Garland by Magnolia, Stickles

A baby cardi with matching card

Hello dears, how are you today?

I would like to show you a little hand knitted vest i have made for an acquaintance. I am pretty sure she will be more than surprised when she is reads my name on the envelope lol.. she is expecting her first baby and i think it is such an amazing experience (if you are not constantly sick) i wanted to make her a little card and of course since i love to knit - i wanted to make a little baby sweater. They are made so quick, the one you see i was able to whip out in just 2 evenings. I even have some yarn left and if i find time i might make a matching hat. The size you see is size 3-6 months, with some room to grow into. I remember getting way too many gifts in size newborn and the babies grows so fast - i wanted her to be able to put the little one in this handmade gift a little longer than just a few weeks. Hopefully she likes it. Fingers crossed.

Oh yes, there is also a card i made to go with the sweater ... the colors of the sweater dictated the colors - i found them in the fall line (Walking in the Forrest) of Maja Design Design papers but i think it does no show too much. You can find all Maja Design papers over at Timbroscrapmania.

I also would like to submit this card to Timbroscrapmanias challenge "Baby's coming".

 Additional supplies:
Pregnant Tilda, flower corner stamp, font stamp - once upon a time
Die: Go Create, Lovely Fence (Magnolia)
Other: paper doily, Tim Holtz Film strip, lace, twine, seam binding ribbon, flowers: Hobby House
Sentiment: Stampin up

Baby vest:
yarn: Malabrigo Worsted (suuuper soft and washable) the perfect baby yarn
needles: Addi lace 5.5 mm
Pattern: Free - Pickles Plain Vest

chalk only

Thank you so much for your visit. The other day when i colored this little sitting Tilda for my egg container, i first stamped the image off some Kraft card stock to see if the size would work for the container. Than later in the evening while i was cleaning up my craft table i started to scribble the image in with black and white chalk pens. It took no longer than 10 minutes. I was really surprised by the out come and emailed a quick picture to a couple of friends to see if they thought it was worth to make a card with it.

Since there was a lot of scribbles around the image i had to cut that off with the smallest possible oval Nestabilite, but i think it still works. Everything on this card was already previously cut for other cards and ended up not being used and tossed in a clear storage bin to use for later.

All i had to do was add some flowers, sew and sponge the card stock/design paper.

Here are the supplies i used:
Stamp: Pie Tilda, Make a wish sentiment, new york post stamp
Magnolia Design Paper: flowers and blue quilt
Dies: So lovely, Spellbinder banner, Tag, Spellbinder oval, Go Create, Wood embellishments are PrimaMarketing. i know Sir Stampalot has the kit i used.. i just could find the correct direct link. This is how it looked sort of.
