Sweet tea party

Hey hey,
Since I fell in love nearly two years ago with Svg cuts, I really needed to make some of their kits. If you take a look at their page you see all the different items, made with such love and details. Its simply amazing what this wonderful couple built in just a few years. Recently (2013) they won the Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice Award and they so deserve it.

Well as my addiction to their projects is quiete reasonable, the fact that I dont own a cutting machine isnt. Still, its too expensive for me to buy. Its about 350€ to start with and thats a massive amout for someone who just crafts for fun and friends (ok sometimes customers too, but its really rare :D  ).

So I decided: use what you have!
I am a digital media designer so I went to my pc, tranformed the cutting data to an usable Photoshop data and worked with it. Needed to give color, seize and needed to fit to the other data. Then I needed to print all, hand cut it and used it as a paper template for the paper I want to use in the final project.

Its really quite a work but when you see the result, worth every minute!

I hope they dont mind that people work with their data, but not owning a cutting machine is quite a hell when you see the projects other people do with their machine.  :(

Here are some projects that I want to show you, the caravan took me sooo long with fitting the seize in Photoshop!

Im still ill, but. ..

So seems like this year is getting on my nerves. I cleaned my atelier and sold a huge amount of it on facebook (yes u need to find those groups, you really have good offers in there). Since many stuff is gone i have the space to craft again :)

So here are two things i made for a cute lady that needed a giftset for an older bike lover, and a happy birthday box that is for a 30s lover. Both were quite happy about it, so guess I did a good job :)

New year-new beginning?

2014 doesnt start that geat for me. I hope it will get better :) just problems around me... What a mess...

Like i told, i started to crochet again. Starting with hats, i was pretty successful. And the coolest: even without pattern! Discovered myboshi for me. I just love their cotton! Then i went over to do some motive hats. - Take a look at the minion, isnt he cute?

Besides spending my days with my crochet needle, my cat levy needed to get an operation because the idiot ate a needle while i sewed christmas presents. He is fine now, but my pocket is a huge amount more poor. :D
... so christmas was quite a poor one, but hey, i did all by myself! Some hot wine sirup, chocolate liqueur, cookies, coffee nuts,....  And i think everybody liked it. :)   like you see on the picture, i even decorated it with lovely tags.

Well then, i hope u had a better start than me, lots of love!

A long time...

Ich ...since my last post. Some major things changed in my private life and i couldnt find my will to do any card, but, in fact, i  defined my skills with polymer clay and started to crochet again. Besides, I started cake making on a higher level. My creativity is still there but i rarely am willing to do something :) . There is always something up that i need to do in first than crafting.

But well, here are some results from cake making, i will post pictures of the other projects later :)

Stay creative!

Meljen and Dream Valley- Text and Animals

Here is a card I have done for 2 challenges. First Meljens design. The challenge this week is: Words for a friend. So add as much text as you can! My background is from a newspaper, and I chosed the cute bee from Meljen and used my Stamping up stamp BEE MY HONEY with it.
 -Lets go yellow-lets go summer! (even if there are temperatures like in siberia right now here...brrr...)

Over at Dream Valley challenges the actual challenge is: Animals, fits in perfectly! I loooooove coloring animals! What amazing challenge combo! They have Robyn's fetish digital stamp as sponsor this time, seems to be a cute little company <3


stay crafty!!!

Christmas challenge 2

So my second entry for the Winter Wonderland challenge blog is this card. I used the Marianne Design  Christmas tree-die to make a stamp with foam out of it. And it works just perfect as you can see! I would like to craft so much more cards with Christmas trees, I love them!


Christmas challenge

Over at the Winter Wonderland challenge blog they have a wonderful challenge: Oh Christmas tree.
I was sure that I will take part, so I have two entries for this  challenge. This is my first one. 

Embossed the cardstock, cut out some triangles, used fitting vinylribbon, and used the fluffy pen to have some snowy effect :) 


Designed to color

For the Designed to Color challenge blog I designed this card. They have a color palette to follow this time:

So here is my entry:

The cupcake stamp is from Kanban, I used a card with a gradient and the small cupcake stamps I bought in a local store here, 9 small stamps for just 1,50. That was a deal :-D

Stay creative!

Shape it up!

Hi there! 
Today I want to show you a card that I normally wanted to do already yesterday. But Greg and me we went on our first hike so I was quite exhausted and sleepy and the bed was too welcoming for me. :)

So here it is, the theme is "shape it up" and the challenge is over at Divas By Design. I love the theme of travelling, so I thought about doing a case with many embellishments. I chosed the digi from precious moments, colored it with copics. The paper I used is from Graphic 45's 12x12 paper pad "transatlantique collection". Most of the flowers are handmade. 
Hope you enjoy it!

Here some shots from the city Kamp Lintfort we we went to hike. Beautiful, isn't it?

Have a great start of the week!

Challenge combo

Hi there!
Today I want to show you a card that I made fitting to three challenges:

The back of the card is a little bit longer and has a black inlay. Like this theres the effekt of the double layer. I used 4 layers in all, the flower from sizzix looks so adorable in the circle. The flowers in the upper left corner I made by myself, I'm always happy if they fit in a project. :D

Some details:
