Shining Christmas Tree!

In the Christmas Card workshop I did recently, we made the following card:

Againn, we used Silk Microfine Glitter and adhered it on the Transparent double sided adhesive from Elizeabeth craft design after we used the company's christmas tree die cut and created 5 layers. The white glitter imitates the snow we hopefully have on Christmas Eve.
For the first time I used the heat embossing technique to receive such a beautiful golden sentiment.

Unfortunately, on my photograph you don't see how beautiful the tree is shimmering.

Shimmering Snowflakes!

Now, that I have some Christmas utensils I have to use them. For the 3 Snowflakes I used the 757 - Snowflakes from Elizabeth craft designs. The white Silk Microfine Glitter adheres on the Transparent double sided adhesive from Elizeabeth craft designs.
In the center of each snowflake there is a pearl. To frame the picture I sewed around the edges with red twine.
Unfortunately, on this picture you can't see how beautiful the snowflakes shimmer.

I wanted to use my Washi Tapes again and created a simple Thank You Card. On the edge I sewed with red twine and glued a pink button to highlight it a bit.

Thanks for the Tea!

I purchased the "Nice and Easy Notes" set from Stampin'up. For a "Thank you Card" I used the nice tea pot. The eye catcher is a big red felt flower with a green button. I was in the mood to sew around the edges instead of using glue.

Let it snow!

Together with my best friend I attended a Christmas card making course last week. We have been very lucky, as we had a great teacher called Sandra, who showed us some completely new techniques.

Let it snow!

For this card we used Shimmer Sheetz from Elizabeth Craft Design and a snowflake embossing folder. For the 3 snowflakes we used the 757 - Snowflakes from Elizabeth craft designs. The Silk Microfine Glitter in 3 different colors adheres on the Transparent double sided adhesive from Elizeabeth craft designs. For the sentiment we also used a die, but I can't remember which one it was.

It is amazing how this snowflakes are shimmering!

Visit me on Pinterest!

Yesterday I created an account on Pinterest as I saw so many great scrapbooking card ideas which I want to imitate someday.
So, from now on you can see my projects also on:

I also included a "Pinterst button" on my blog. I hope it is working. Maybe you can let me know.

Treasure Box for my Darling!

For her first birthday I made another treasure box for our little daughter. When she is old enough she can fill it with her treasures like hairslides, necklace, earrings, etc.
Of course, I used lots of pink, purple, glitter, flowers, washy tapes and lots more to decorate the cigar box.

The flower is a real eye catcher.

Thanks from the lawn gnome!

You always need some "Thank you" cards for various occasions.
I have a lovely paper with garden gnomes and snails which I wanted to use for quite a while so I created this card:

It was all about cooking!

My father was a very passionate cook before he passed away several months ago.
He loved to use his Weber BBQ grill and made us the most delicious food with it all year long, even in winter when it was snowing. ;-)
Therefore, we invited him to a Weber grill class where he could learn some new techniques we could all profit from. He was very much looking forward to this event which he attended just one week before he died completely unexpected.
This was my birthday card for him together with the voucher for the grill class:

Halloween Frame!

I was so well prepared with lots of sweets on Halloween's eve but there were no kids coming the whole evening. I think because of our remote location and that there aren't little kids living around.
So, I made some more Halloween cards while I was waiting:
