My friends and I tend to list everything now...its our ages!!! so here is a 2015 to do book for you !!!
Using Heathers New Years Celebration Ethereal Enchantress! You will find her in the NEW section of the shop!
 
Coloured in only 6 colours of promarkers: Praline, Shale, Vanilla, Wild Cranberry, Starfish and Sandstone!
 
Yes a 50p notebook can look fantastic and unique! cover the book in your chosen paper ( I used the joy baby block) and don't forget to add the loop for your pen!
 
Finish covering your book covering the tab up (we don't do messy here you know!!!) hehe
 
Using some glitter, pearls, ribbon, and a Tonic die and the project is done....isn't she beautiful!!! 
 
Now the only question remains...Should I gift her or keep...mmmm a toughie!

My first pop-up card!

A day late and a dollar short! LOL!
I  made a mariachi band,  pop-up card using Heather's new stitched collection.
(Mariachi Joey, Pablo, and Pablo A La Musica)
I cut them all out, leaving a white border around them
My tallest images are the Mariachi Joey's, so mark were you want them so they fit in the pop-up card and do the same with Pablo A La Musica (from the fold)
Mark the lines where you are going to cut but don't cut them yet (you can always erase your lines but don't worry about them, they will be inside the card.)
Decorate the inside first b4 you cut
Now cut like this and fold them back
Open it up and bring the tabs in that you cut
Build your band! Glue your images on each of your tabs. The tree and some packages are stickers
Glue your pop-up card inside another card and start decorating the front
Here's the inside of the card
I used a framelit from SU and my other image (Pablo) to decorate the front. I popped him up with dimensional dots and the sentiment is one I did on WORD.
Open it up and I used a spellbinders diecut that looked kinda like a rug

I HOPE YOU LIKED MY TUTORIAL AND YOU WILL TRY THIS, IT'S ALOT OF FUN!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Hello everyone!!
It is almost Christmas... are you already done with the presents and diner plans??
We here in the Netherlands are celebrating 2 christmas days so lot to do here!!

But I managed to make a little christmas present with little lights in it.


I have used Eleanor santa's helper and colored her with faber castell pencils.
The project looks a bit like an mini album. I have used several (Noor! Deisng) dies and of course flowers.  Eleanor is standing near the latern.

 When you open it, you see the light in a box.
Ohh the papers I have used are from Maja design.. I love the real traditional christmas colors!

 A tag in the pocket for a message
 And so you open the box to use the lights with christmas!

I hope I have inspired you with this creation!

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, enjoy being with your family and
for the new year, I hope everyone will be in good healt, and you have lot's of creativity!!

Hugs Tiets xx

Bettina's Christmas basket inspiration

Bettina here today and time for another inspiration for Lacy Sunshine. I decided it was time to make a little treat for the staff that keeps my toddler in kindergarden happy all day when I am at work. I chose to make a Christmas basket with adorable Mary Boo's Candy candy. Have a look:


I am going to use this basket and fill it up with treats and send it with my toddler to give to the staff. I do hope they are going to love her just as much as I do. 

I've used Maja design papers and lace from WOC and she's coloured with my promarkers. Hope you all have a lovely day!

Walking in a winter wonderland!


My turn to show you  a card I have made for my club.. A new digi, so cute!!
I have made a tag  with a little platform so I could create a little scene!At the top of the tag I have clued the snowflake border so it looks like a real wintercard!
I have used winter papers and colored Eleanor with copics markers.

The postcard stamp I have stamped with distress ink on the design paper en at several places I put some gesso paint so it looks a bit like snowing.
On the platform the lovely reindeer from Noor Design. Isn't she cute?
And the now glowes are so tiny and  fits so nicely on the card.

I hope it has given you some inspiration!!!

A Christmas Tote

Good Morning and are you ready for Christmas?!
I'm not yet but I'm sure there is alot of us scrambling!
Today we are going to make this:
For lack of a better word we'll just call this a four panel tote. I made one when Project Tuesday was alive but I never could find a tut so I took mine apart.
1. Start with a heavy 12" x 12" CS and score at 4" and 8"

2. Turn it 1/4 turn and score it the same way (you now have nine 4" panels

3. Pre-fold all your score lines up

4. On all four corners make a valley fold from corner to corner like this



5. Your tote is starting to take shape


6. Out of Designer Paper cut twelve 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" squares

7. Leave four whole ones and cut the remaining eight in half, corner to corner

8. On the inside of your tote start gluing the pieces on with a strong glue
(don't place anything on your score lines)


9. Now turn it over and glue on the remaining pieces, the panels are for your Lacy Sunshine images


10. Then with a hole punch tool, add an eyelet in each corner

11. Use some sort of string or thin ribbon and thread it thru each eyelet. Tie up the corners
I wanted mine prettier so I tied a bow of Christmas ribbon and used two dimensional stickers, back to back

12. Now it is time to add you Lacy Sunshine images
13. I used three images and saved the other panel for my sentiment
'Candi Cane Ethereal Enchantress', 'Sugi Toy Soldier', and 'Hollyanna Ethereal Enchantress'





14. Add a few more embellishments and you have a great tote for a gift



HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
