19 years old

Hello everyone,

Today I am offering you a very girly birthday card, made once again with the wonderful collection of "Miles Apart" papers from Maja Design that I love !! (link at the end of the article)

I'll tell you a secret: the blues are as beautiful as the roses, can't wait to scrap them too !!

Stamp "Hippity Hoppity 2019: Flower Bunny Tilda", Magnolia
Dies "Fence" and "Chicken Wire", Magnolia

All thicknesses of papers are mounted on 3D foam to provide depth.

To dress my barrier, I mixed some pretty ready-made roses with two "house" flowers in white Foamiran. The leaves are made of paper.

Frankly, have you ever seen something so cute ??
Another doll that fits in the Top 10 of my favorite stamps ever ... well, the problem is that there are indeed about fifty stamps in my Top 10 ...

See you soon

Castle Pop Up Box Card

Good morning!  I have a castle pop up card to show you today using Maja Design papers and the wonderful Magnolia Castle Doohickey die.  The papers are from Maja's Vintage Summer Basics, Denim & Friends and Traditional Christmas collections.

To make a symetrical front to the card I used castle die cut from the reverse side on the right of the card.  I have also used the reverse sides of the paper for the little brick sections for added interest.  The castle gates are made from the Window Doohickey.

I have used the castle again on the top of the card along with two towers cut from a Magnolia die from Volume 5.  The battlements are the top of the Lovely Fence Doohickey die.

On each side I have also added some little bricks from the castle Doohickey die.  The clouds were cut with the Doohickey from Volume 25, Bella Notte.

Once you open the gates the drawbridge drops down to reveal the birthday message.  

The 'portcullis' is the fence Doohickey from Volume 25 turned upside down.  I love it when you can use dies to make other items.

The whole card still folds down flat to be placed into an envelope.  I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

40 years !!

Hello everybody,

No card today but an explosion box that I had the pleasure of making for a very special birthday: the 40 years of my best friend.
(Must say that she is soooooo more awake than me! uh no, in real life, she is younger)

My box measures 9.5 cm squared and the lid 10 cm.
It is covered with beautiful papers from the "Miles Apart" collection by Maja Design, some paper foliage and flowers in white Foamiran (+2/3 mini roses from Craft Heaven Shop).
All sprinkled with a few drops of Glossy accent for a "Rain" effect.


And inside:

Stamp Magnolia "My Own Key Tilda"

I had fun cutting out the location of the window with a cutter and placing the same die on each side (removing the shutters on the outside) to have a real effect of transparency.

 Zoom in on details:

That's all for me !
See you soon

Bread, wine and ... macaroons !

Good morning all,

I took out my big favorite Créalies die to scrape this brand new Magnolia stamp from the "Lovely Collection 2021": "Paris Macaroon Tilda"

I matched it with the awesome "Little Street Café" pad papers by Maja Design and added some roses to it to finish off because, Craft Heaven Shop, it's not just pretty papers and pretty stamps, it's is also a multitude of pretty flowers to slip everywhere on your compositions!

See you soon

My Laundry Room

Hello everybody,

Today I am offering you a card with two pretty stamps from the new Magnolia collection : "My Laundry Room 2021". 

I made my embossed card using different thicknesses of 3D foam.
 I mixed two stamps from this year with an old one that fit perfectly with the new collection and, for more realism, I cut out a small window in my scene.

I used a nice Maja Design paper to make the wallpaper for my laundry room.

See you soon

Good Luck Card

Good afternoon!  Today's card is a good luck card I made for my son for his first ever day at work.  I have used Maja Design papers from the Shades of Denim and the Vintage Romance Collections.  I have used the Magnolia Recipe Card Doohickey to cut the background paper.  The four-leafed clover was created using the heart from Magnolia's Woodland Tags Doohickey set.  The button is from my stash.

The bottom edge of the card was cut with Magnolia's Swedish Lace Doohickey die.

The lettering was created with Thinlits Elle dies and black cardstock.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Wrinkles Don't Hurt

Good evening!  I have a fun new Magnolia image and sentiment set to show you on today's card from the Laundry Collection for Craft Heaven.  The papers are from Reprint's Love and Romance collection.

I have painted Ironing Tilda with Distress Inks and added Stardust Stickles to her ironing and her hair ribbon.

The cute coat hangers are by Laserowe and I have made the dress using the baby's romper Doohickey die - I have simply cut off the leg section.  The seam binding I have used for the scarf is from Craft Heaven.  The sentiment has been stamped onto a tag cut with the Woodland Tag Doohickey die.

I have added another hanger and some flowers from Craft Heaven on the other side of the image.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Little Easter Bunnies

Hello everybody,

To change the cards a bit, I wanted to take up the brilliant idea shared by Fati last week on her blog: 
(by clicking on the link, you will have access to her article and the tutorial she made)

I just changed the dimensions a bit to fit the size of the stamps
My boxes therefore measure 8cm per side and the lids 8.5cm

They are perfect to hold 4 Ferrero rocher balls.

I have used Magnolia tampons from 2020:
"Hip Hop Hooray Art" and "Hippity Hoppity Day Art"

And papers from the "Miles Apart" collection by Maja Design

Have a good end of the day and don't eat too many chocolates !!
