Today it’s been raining cats and dogs. This was not what I expected, so I started with sorting my work space, a drawer of old postcards, then I created a big mess again, but I am quite happy with the results:
3 personalized birthday cards I need next week for friends.
I found 2 beautiful but shabby looking advertising folders from very thick striped matte card stock. Glad I kept them years ago! After finding the right sandwich for my die cutting machine they came out beautifully by using the big stamp die cut from Tim Holtz. I printed some black and white stripes on glossy photo paper and tried a brand new mirror card stock and the victorian frames. In real they look much more beautiful than on the picture. The top card has got a kind of booklet, because I had to say more than I could pack on the front. I just fixed the little pages with a metal brad.
The two other cards had to be fashion related, so I used my little dress die cuts and the new handbag dies.
Maybe you get some inspirations for your own cards.

May is my favourite month. It is for taking a deep breath, sitting outside in the sun, gardening, it is my birthday month and it’s international scrapbooking day on 4th of May.
So I created a little printable birthday cake box for all of you as a little crafting project, a lovely gift for yourself and others.
It is set up as a freebie at Digiscrapstation until 15th May with this coupon code:
Just fill it in while checking out and price is set to zero. Please don’t miss to have a walk through the DSS store and have a look at all the great digital scrapbooking and printable products from various designers.
I am having a 50% sale for the next 2 weeks!
If you want to spend money you can also get it from my Etsy shop.
I made some tries in mixed media lately and I don’t remember anymore how I was inspired, but I ended up with these two matching wall decor projects. I called them Empty Room and you can buy the printable supplies in my online shops.
I recorded some steps, so here is also a kind of tutorial how I did it for those, who are not such experienced crafters. One big advantage of printables is: if you mess something, don’t worry, just print it again!
And another advantage: you can start directly. The only thing you need is some glossy photo paper, a color printer, a scissors and some glue.
You can also get creative with filling the rooms just to your liking with all you got around you. Have fun!
Spring is here! Now my wonderful iPad Mini, which is my reliable companion wherever I go, urgently needed a new cover.
When I got it for christmas I just made a quick felt sleeve and done.
So I digged into my own stock and found some amazing fabrics. And I totally fell in love with a thick woven jacquard at my retailer. So now I had enough material to make a little iPad case series.
Here I also used the satin ribbons I sell separatley as supplies. I got into another color rush when I made these for my creations. Then they seemed to be so useful for all and everything, that I listed them in my Etsy shop in various color shades.
In May many people I know are having their birthdays including me
We stopped to give away big gifts to each other long ago, but a little something, some chocolates, candy, a beautiful soap or a lovely little piece of jewelry from a hand made marketplace is always nice to give especially when it is beautifully packed.
A while a go I created these easy to build boxes and envelopes. You just print them on your home printer, cut them and some have to be glued, the favor boxes don’t.
They are looking beautifully in black and white and if you mess one, you just print it again.
