#52cafecards January Challenge Week 1

Hello dear friends

I'm back on the blog today sharing a small little project I created just for fun. Yes it's been a while since I entered challenges but it is definitely something that I would like to do more this year.

Marta Lapkowska created a Facebook page called Maremi's Creative Cafe. She invites all kinds of crafters to come and share their work and be part of this wonderful, careing community where people can inspire and encourage each other and be free to express their art.

As part of this she started a new challenge where you need to use playing cards to create 52 cards in 2017, each with it's own theme. Week 1 started off with the theme "Art".

This is my take on it but make sure you pop in and play along.

Hope you join in too.

Kraft Plus January 2017

Hello dear friends

I'm back on the blog today sharing my take on the January challenge at Kraft +.

This month's challenge is to create a layout, card art journal or off the page project featuring a bicycle and as always to use kraft paper. You can interpret it in any way you wish to so come and play along. 12/on-your-bike-january-challenge.html?m=1

I was inspired by the images in the moodboard and vintage bicycles. This photo of my cousin and his gorgeous wife was perfect as bike rides gives us the opportunity to explore the beautiful things in life rather than rushing about. At the same time it symbolizes the journey together and all the ups and downs along the road. What inspires you, how do you interpret this challenge? I can't wait to see so come and join us.

Till next time enjoy creating

Hello there dear friends

Wow it's January and the new year started with a bang. Hope you all had fun celebrating.

Speaking of celebrations I kicked off the year with my first share  for More than Words. Have I mentioned how thrilled I still am to have the opportunity to be joining these amazingly talented group of girls?
We are also celebrating  our first bithday at More than Words. This month the challenge word is Celebrate and the Creative challenge is Bling.

I was inspired by these photos of my cousin in law and her bridesmaids celebrating her wedding day.  I incorporated bling by die cutting the word celebrate 3 times out of gold foil paper and used it to matt my photos.  Gold flowers and sequins were added to mimic the festivities and cature the magic of this wonderful day.

I do hope you will join us this time to play along with us and look forward to seeing your creations. As always there are some fabulous  prises up for grabs so make sure you come and check it out.

Wishing you all the best for the new year.

CSI Case File 220

Hello hello dear friends

It is seriously crazy and things are just soo busy. It seems like the days all blurr into a week and before you know it,  it will be Christmas. Yay for some down time and spending a little bit of time chilling with friends and family.

CSI has a brand new challenge and I am so happy to share my take on it with you.

At first I had no idea where to start. Food accents did not spark any photo ideas so I looked at the journaling prompts. Yes one of them takes you to a website with so many ideas and prompts that you will soon realize this layout can be of any theme under the sun.

I  just started to add some watercolor paint in the required colours and and light stamping in grey Archival ink. This photo was perfect for the love promt I saw on the links page. I  fussy cut some flowers from the beautiful Magnolia Papers from Courture Creations and added some foam tape for dimention. Next I added metal leaves, tulle,  Prima Art Stones, Scrap FX chipboard, ribbon and some journaling to suit. Voila all was done.

So here is the challenge. Please inbox me if you have any questions I am always happy to help.

Now please join us this time round and play along. Looking forward seeing your creations.

Till next time have fun playing xxx

Be Brave

Hello dear friends

I'm back sharing my take on this month's Scrap the Boys Challenge. This time we require you to scrap a boy's layout featuring any kind of sport.

I used this fabulous photo of my cousin. Werner was a top paramedic in his time, who saved many lives. Like most boys he loved his wheels. motorbikes, cars and quads.

Today after many eye operations he is blind as result of diabetes. In the last 3 years he has been in and out of hospital, had a 4 artery heart bypass, broken ribs and kidney issues. At the age of 32 he keeps fighting the sickness. For myself, I would like to remember his glory days, how strong he still is despite the difficulty and all the lives he touched. You are a champ Werner, and so we will keep remembering you.

Friends I don't do sad posts as a rule and if anything sad ever happens in my life, you will never read it on my Facebook page. However this is so close to my heart that I could not help but to share with you today.

Let's appreciate everything we have. Let's look at all the things we receive every day and rejoice in the quantities of blessings we so easily take for granted. Scrap, create and savor the special moments of the ones you love.

With that I invite you to  come and join us this month and share the special moments and joy your boys find in their chosen sport.

Till next time

Kraft Plus November

Hello all

Hope you are having a good week.

I am sorry I have a little missing in action of late. It sure have been hectic and it's hard to believe we are in November already. Hopefully you have managed to keep track of me via ScrapFX, Colour Blast Facebook and Instagram :)

Yet let's get back to it. First up is my take on this month's Kraft Plus challenge. This time we need you to find inspiration within your closet .

I found inspiration from a little white chiffon dress I bought early this year. It's pretty plane but I love the loose and free feeling.

 It makes me happy and I  tried to express  this by using the chiffon lace flowers. I also found inspiration from the gold and pearl necklace which I wore with the dress in this photo.

So this is my take. How about yours? I can't wait to see what you create so join us this time at:
