hello crafty friends!

i've got a brand new layout to share with you today! 


i've create this layout using the amazing products of SA CRAFTERS. i used a stencil, a few chippies and a lot of their lovely wooden designs.

on the picture - my three favourite children in the world, the cutest cousins and most devoted friends - THEO, WILLY and ELISE.

here is a list with all the SA CRAFTERS products used on this project:

the pattern papers are from WEBSTER'S PAGES "everyday poetry" collection. i used KAISERCRAFT clear stamps to give extra pattern to the top layer - "FLUTTER" and "BOTANICAL" with VERSAFINE smokey grey ink pad.

i added the dimensional brick pattern using SA CRAFTERS 6x6 brick wall no. 3 stencil 6x6 brick wall no. 3 stencil with RANGER texture paste. as a final touch i sprinkles black GLIMMER GLAM on top of my background.

LOVE is SWEET {merly impressions & KAISERCRAFT}

hello crafty friends! 

since FEBRUARY is the month of LOVE, i've prepared another project with the beautiful “XO” collection from KAISERCRAFT { available @ MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store}.


for my background i used EVER AFTER pattern paper and WREATH die-cut paper. using the clear stamps from the same collection with black ink, i stamped the arrow edge on my background. i added the dark pink hearts from the EPOXY stickers – CANDY colour to two of the arrows.

then i divided the WREATH die-cut paper in two parts – a small and a bigger one, and adhered them with KAISERCRAFT 12 mm double-sided tape onto the pinkish pattern paper.

finally, i splashed some red ink spray on top of the two paper layers.

to decorate my page i used fuzzy cut elements from the MADLY pattern paper and die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack and the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad. i added STICKLES star dust glitter glue to the edge of the hearts and the little birds.

 then using the clear stamp set from the STORYTELLER collection and black ink, i stamped the "friends forever" phrase onto a pink banner and then i adhered all of the embellishments with mounting foam dots.

 i tied up the die cut tags with SEW EASY pink twine.

the pretty white lace is also from KAISERCRAFT – lace pack, white.

for the flower cluster i used KAISERCARFT mini paper blooms COCONUT and BLACK, and paper blooms HOT PINK set. i adhered the flowers with mounting foam tape.

for my sub title i used a cut off paper strip from one of the patter papers. i really liked the quote, so i divided it into shorter strips and adhered it with mounting foam tape.

for my title i used die cut words from the COLLECTABLES pack.

i added BLACK rhinestones and EPOXY stickers – CANDY to finish off my design.

 thank you for stopping by today!

Come back soon for the reveal of KAISERCARFT newest collections!

hello crafty friends!

i've got a FANTASTIC NEWS to share with you today!
it is official - i'm joining CANVAS CORP BRANDS creative crew for the next year and i'll be creating side by side with the most amazing ladies!

to introduce ourselves and to help you get to know us better, each member of the crew created a 4×4 stretched canvas showing our personal style and what we like best.

here is mine - 


for mine i choose light clean colours, shimmering silver and a cat! as you can guess i LOVE bright colours, glitter and shimmer and most of all i {HEART} cats! 

when my daughter saw this canvas, she liked it so much that she took is for her collection. and this is the best place any art with cats can be!

i used 4 x 4 stretched natural canvas. i sprayed the canvas with different colours GLIMMER MIST: patina and turquoise blue for the sky and sunflower for the sandy ground.

after the canvas has dried i stamped the harlequin frame using brown ink and SAVOR THE MOMENT cling stamp set. then i took the smallest stars from the SHINE cling stamp set, covered them with SILVER high impact metallic paint and stamped them randomly on my background.

then i drew the kitten on a white cardstock using FABER-CASTELL pitt artistic pen black and coloured it with  GLIMMER GLAZE black olive. to create the blue ribbon around his neck i used LIQUID PEARLS.

for the title tile I used mistable paper, which i sprayed with GLIMMER MIST sterling. after the mist has dried, i stamped the word SHINE using the SHINE cling stamp set and SILVER high impact metallic paint. after the paint has dried, i fussy cut the title by hand and inked its edges with black ink.

to die cut  the branches i used TIM HOLTZ' mini branch and leaf set and CCB e-flute craft tiles. once all of my embellishments were cut and dry, i attached them with 3d tape to the canvas.

here is a list with all the different CANVAS CORP products:
we have many great creative plans for 2015 and we hope you will join us by following along on our blog, INSTAGRAM pages and FACEBOOK pages. here are the links for all of the brands, so you can easily follow your favorite brand or all the brands.

happy VALENTINE'S DAY! {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello crafty peeps!


i hope you all have wonderful romantic time today and here is my contribution to the most romantic day of the year - 

"YOU and ME"

there is nothing better than a big heart filled with roses and love on 14th of february! all of the paper and the embellishments i used on this layout are from KAISERCRAFT “XO” collection

for my background i used MY HEART gloss paper. i separated carefully the heart using CRAFT KNIFE and layered it on a light pink flowery paper from the mini PAPER PAD. i ruffled the edges of the red heart using TIM HOLTZ’ paper distresser.

 i used XO collection CLEAR STAMPS with BLACK and WHITE ink to stamp on the background.

to decorate my page i used some of the printed die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack and mini paper blooms COCONUT colour. i removed the green leaves from the bottom of the flowers, because i didn’t want to have an extra colour on my page. to attach my embellishments i used MOUNTING FOAM tape and MOUNTING FOAM dots

 this month i decided to try yet another KAISERCARFT product i wasn’t familiar with – EPOXY stickers. to match the colour palette of my page i choose to work with the CANDY colour pack and i can honestly say that i’m positively amazed. the stickers stick very well to any surface and because of the different shapes and the various colour shades, the possibilities to use one package are endless.

and of course it wouldn’t be my project if there were no rhinestones {KAISERCRAFT rhinestones RED}.

the hearts on my layout are die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack and from the 12 x 12″ STICKER sheet

i added flowers, sweet sayings and BLACK rhinestones to finish off my design.

THANK YOU for stopping by today!

have an amazing VALENTINE’S DAY!
