Just a little christmas crafting

Hello hello!

I wanted to wrap a present for a friend's birthday gift but I was too lazy to go and buy some wrapping paper, so I used my craft stash to make something and I came up with a ... gift basket. LOL!

I also made a l little tag/card for my wishes, I don't know what stamp it is, I actually found the stamped image in my stash (maybe from last year's crop?) and colored it.

That's all for now, I don't have any step by step photos because I just did it haphazardly in 10', without a pattern etc, I just did what came into my mind. I will make another one and take detailed photos, I promise!

Hope you're all well and thriving!

Hello darlings!

Hello hello hello darlings, I know it's been AGES since I dissapeared, but, things happen, then I lost my mojo, then, well, I haven't actually found it but I 'm coming around slowly.

My first project after sooo long seemed like a true feat to me, I didn't know what I had in my stash (or where exactly was everything) or how to use it (lol!). So, after a lot of search and trial and error, I managed to finish this:

It is a tumbler from Starbucks, the one that has a sort of template paper inside so that you can personalize it, it costs about €9, I thought it would be a nice idea for a cheap but cute gift for a friend of mine.

Don't ask me how I did it, it is all a blur, I remember stamping like crazy, using distress inks like a lunatic and addding TONS of glittery stuff, trust me, it was SCARY!

The actual finished project:

And a close up (lovely Sarah Kay):

That's it for now, I hope you 're all well and thriving, see ya (hopefully in this century!).

I would like to thank Maria Z and Sonia for giving me this award

and I will pass it on to the following crafter neighbours and friends (in random order):

for the inspiration and the encouragement they generously give me.
It goes without saying that there are many many more friends and crafters that I would like to thank but it would take me hours...LOL!

Sleep tight and sweet dreams

Christmas mini album

This is a mini that I gave as a gift to a friend of mine during the holidays and since I had no time I did it hurriedly and without that much embellishing, but, I knew that my friend liked my minis (she 's not a crafter but loves everything I show her),  so I included in the parcel a bunch of bits and embellishments so that she can personalize it.

I just used the leftovers I had from the Cosmo Cricket "Jolly by Golly"collection and for the covers I also used a My Mind's Eye pp.

Here's the inside of the front cover.

Some pages

Here I made a kind of flap, she can use it to add a bit with journaling, or an embellishment, etc. I used the "trellis" Martha Stewart deep edge punch to decorate the edge.
The rest of the pages are made in these two styles, only the patterned papers are different.

 Here's the inside of the back cover, I used the "flower bed" Martha Stewart deep edge punch to decorate the pocket.

My friend loved it and she was really funny when she saw the little pouch with the embellishments I added, she was like a little child in a candy store!
