Hello  I know I totally ignored my blog lately and I will try to post more often.
I hope you and your love ones are all safe from the virus.
Today it was my turn to host a post at the maja design Blog
And I made this gift bag. this gift bag  I made for my friend . Because of the lockdown we can’t meet so I made her this bag .
I put  her favorite tea ( apple pie tea )and chocolate in it.  Of course I kept the safe distance when I delivered it to her on my way to the grocery store.

Here are some close ups for you.
The flowers  , ribbon and lace are from my own stash.

 The little label is made with a stamp from Waltzing Mouse.

Thank you for visiting.
I hope you like the gift bag I made for  you. Stay safe and If you leave a message I will come over to your blog to take a look at your creations.
I made this giftbag using  The Little Street Cafe Collection.

Creativity is the key to succes.

 I have the honour to represent Maja Design as Guest designer for the More than words challenges. Maja design is one of their prize sponsors. This is the layout I made . The challenge is use the word succes and use a key on your layout. The word SUCCESS inspired me to use a picture of an artist carrying her brushes. The word 'create' in the lightbulb, the KEY and then the word 'success' are displayed together to make up the quote in the challenge board 'Creativity is the key to success'. I added some of my own brushes and pencil to embellish the layout as these are tools which I always use when crafting, so in a way they help me accomplish my work successfully.

This is the challenge moodboard.

Maja Design October moodboard challenge.

The new mood board for October is up at Maja Design Blog. 
Summer is over and autumn is here , so time for nic walks in the fresh air and cup of hot coco or tea when you get home. 
I love all the beautiful colors autumn gives us and the rain and wind don't bother me much. 

I wanted to make a autumn layout but got so stuck with it so decided to make this gift envelope. I must say I like how it turned out eventually.


And this is this is this months moodboard, don't you just love it ?  I hope you all will play along this month , you can win the Maja design collection of your choise!. 
Hope to see your creation.

Beautyful Dreamer.

Hello ,
Today I bring you this layout . I made this one inspired my the current moodboard challenge.
I build this layout wit several left overs I had in my leftover-box from previous layouts.
Like I mentioned before , I never throw anything away, you never know if you can use it again on an other layout, card , minialbum or any other project.
The only thing you need to do is remember to go thru your leftovers from time to time, don't forget about them.

Here I have a close up for you. The leaves on the background are made with mask from dusty attic and versamagic jumbo java and hint of pesto.
I also colored some cheesecloth with it to use behind the flowers that are from Prima marketing.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like the layout I made for you.
