Name tags


Hello ladies, today would like to show you the two name tags I have made to wear during my workshops. One for each day Smile
Sorry for the bad quality of my photos.. they have been literally taken the last minute before packing the camera and some other last minute things for my big trip.


Here is a little shot so you can see the reverse side. I used some chipboard coasters to back the flimsy paper. otherwise I was worried the paper could not “carry” all the embellishments I added to the tag. Cutting worked well with Spellbinders and my big shot.


Iam very excited.. actually today (21. is my first workshop in the UK at Sir Stampalot) and I will also have one more class tomorrow. Maybe you can come? just call the shop at From UK: 01733 324 007.

For Carole…

Claudia_Rosa_Caroles friendship card_1

how blessed am I to be able to travel this year to all those places and I am so excited as of today as I am writing this posting to know already a few people I know for sure I can meet. It is even more exciting to sit here and think who else from the blogging community I might be able to meet in person. OMG!!! THIS IS INSANE!!!

I have made this card to give to my dear friend Carole.. who has been a really good friend of mine since I started to blog. Carole is going to travel just to meet me to Sir Stampalot. I told her I might shed a tear or two when I finally get to see her in person.

I hope she is going to like this card. Since I can give it to her by hand I thought it would be okay to have the tags stick over the 6x6 card base. Usually keep everything inside that perimeter.. its already hard enough to mail those kind of cards with all the high flower embellishments on them.

Card we made in Rome

Claudia_Rosa_Present tied_1

Hello friends, today I can show some photos of the card we have made in Rome with Barbara. In total there are 4 colored images inside this little book for the ladies to look and color in. There is plenty to embellish on this little project. I was a bit worried how many images I need to keep the class busy, since this is my first time.

Little Miss MuuMuu

Claudia_Rosa_MIss Mu Mu_1

Well… is she not cute???? When I was making the card I was already envisioning me and my boys going for a hike on the German Alps. I used to do this like once or twice a year in summer and my friends and I would always stop by a "Kaeserei” a shop where they make the cheese right there fresh using milk the cows produce. Meaning those cows eat just the grass there on the alps and I think they can kind of run around wild I guess, or have large areas they can feed. Heck what do I know… I am not a city girl but the the town is rather large. hahaha for me seeing no fence means “wild” and be careful… something might bite you in your behind. hahahaha Luckily Miss MuuMuu seams to be a very friendly one Smile

Stamps: Miss MuuMuu – Summer Memories
