I just read a post in another blog, where the blogger listed her favorites of what she had created during the past year. So I thought I would do the same. However, I have created less things than usual this year, and several of the cards I’ve made are pieces I’m not satisfied with. I managed to pick 10 items though. First out the letterstand I made, the rest are cards.
Here are my third and last tealight card and matchbox for this Christmas.I made them rather wintery than Christmassy, so the receipient (it’s a Christmas gift for a friend, together with a candle holder) can have them on her table with the candle holder not only for Christmas but for entire winter
Here’s another tealight card and matchbox. I kept these very simple and let the paper do the talking, no decorations. As mentioned in my previous post, tealight card template is from StampARTic.
A couple of weeks ago, I made this tealight card, plus decorated a matching matchbox. I found the instructions for the tealight card at StampARTic, and modified it a little bit.
Red cardstock – Bazzill Basics Paper
Designer paper – Slöjd-Detaljer Julkänsla
Washi tape – Stamperia
Organza ribbon – Slöjd-Detaljer
Plastic “window” on tealights – a plastic folder I had. Any quite sturdy plastic works.
We’ve got fridge magnets at work, so I needed to try one. You just add a piece of whatever you want (a collage, something stamped, just a photo, or whatever your mind can come up with) in the framed back panel, and put on the front panel. Voilà -ready! I went for a easy peasy little collage with Tim Holtz stuff.
Magnet – Slöjd-Detaljer
Background paper – Tim Holtz Idea-ology Lost and Found
Letter (ART) stickers – Tim Holtz Idea-ology Lost and Found
Word stickers – Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chitchat
Glitter Glue – Stickles Star Dust
Today I finally decorated the letter stand I bought at work probably over a year ago. Yes, it’s very common for me to take a loooong time until I get things done…
Letter stand – Slöjd-Detaljer (can’t find it on the website anymore, so I guess it’s discontinued)
Designer paper – Bo Bunny Weekend Market
Inked edges – Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Decoupage glue/varnish – Schjerning
I just realized that I never showed the purple gift I made for my purple loving friend for Christmas. About time to show it now when it’s Easter, I guess. 😉 I decorated a matchbox and a gift box. Inside the gift box is a pair of purple earrings I made, which I unfortunately don’t have a good photo of.
When a friend and I wanted to send some chocolate to a musician friend in the U.S., I made this blingy rockin’ gift box to put it in. It was received today, so now I can finally upload the pics. 😀
Last month I dressed up a torso. I think it was meant for decoupage, but since I’m not the decoupage kind of girl, I did it the scrapbooking way instead. 😉
I did have some problems with the top (hey, she has curves! I’m a cardmaker and only used to work with flat stuff), and ended up glueing paper strips instead of larges pieces of paper. The necklace is selfadhesive pearls.
The paper for the skirt is folded to give a pleated look, with lace at the bottom.
Around her waist is a ribbon, tied with a bow in the back.
I didn’t get that much done in May. These are the few things I made.
An ATC (actually I made two, but the other one turned out so messy):
And a notebook – a teeny tiny little one, only about 7 cm, made with my Bind-It-All:
