Simply Design Too

Hi everyone! Today is a new challenge day at Simply create too! The theme is white, Black and another color, and I decided to make a card with layering dies and gold foil.    I created a window card.  I used one of my 3 heart layering dies to create a window on the top flap of my Card. I used two of them to die cut the bottom layer from black cardstock and the top layer from Thermoweb toner paper, which I foiled with Couture creations foil. I closed my card and glued the two hearts stacked together inside the... [Lire la suite]

Hello crafty friends ! Today I am back with another inspiration for Simply create too ! We are starting another challenge and you have until the 26th of June to join us ! The theme is "All summer long" and I don't know why but it reminded me of lemons. I could have gone with the beach, the sand and some shells or starfish but no, I wanted to go for lemons. For this canvas, I have been inspired by Pretty Little Button. I prepared the canvas waaayyyy in advance and after I made it, Yana Smakula has created another card in the same... [Lire la suite]

This was the first time I used a crackle paste... [Lire la suite]

Hello crafty friends! Today is The day... Have you been waiting for it for the whole month? Yes, you've guessed... It is time for another challenge at Simply create too! And my inspiration for you is this very organic (and unusual compared to my other creations...) altered box I made for a friend who is leaving my company:     I created the texture with a paper napkin that I glued on top of the lid.

Simply create Too challenge - use pattern paper

Hello Mixed Media lovers! Today is the start of new challenge at Simply Create Too! This month, we have an optional twist: use pattern paper. Therefore, I got my favorite paper from the AB Studio collection "Be gentle" and created this lovely shaker from the packaging of a Finnabair wax. I also spread some texture paste through one of my favorite stencil, the bouquet of rose by Simon Says Stamp. For the shaker itself I created a mix of sequins, butterfly filigree (they were from an old earring which I disassembled), buttons,... [Lire la suite]

Hello crafty friends ! Today starts the new Simply Create too Challenge for the month of May and here is my inspirational post.

You've got some mail ! Simply Create too challenge

Hello crafty friends ! Today is the day the new Simply Create too challenge starts ! This month is aything goes with an optional twist : for a male ! I must confess, I never know what to do for a man... So I decided to do something different, however not quite for a man :). So today is just not a Mixed Media project, just a scrapbooking project I have been inspired by a Facebook post I saw (I think it was on the Create with Prima group):  a lady had created an envelop with the Moon child collection. And I decided to do the same... [Lire la suite]
