Magnolia Doo Bee Pops Egg on Glassine Paper Bag

 Hello my dear friends,
 How are you today ? Hope that you have a great weekend. I have a very quick and simple Easter project to show you. Here is my Glassine paper bag which I want to fill in some chocolates to give to my kids on Easter Day.

 It was a quick and easy project. I cut a piece of Magnolia Easter Collection patterned paper according to the size of the bag and filled inside of the bag as to make a mute background {clever idea}:=))
I made the egg with Magnolia Doo Bee Pops paper, which you can view my tutorial HERE. It's very easy to make. But for this project I just made an half egg.This is my focal point of my project.
I cut two strips of different pattern of washi tape and glue at the bottom of the bag then adhere a strip of lace on them.

Lastly, decorated the bag as I wish, this was the fun part. I put some Ranger Gold stickles on the egg and paper flowers from Kodt& Godt.
I hope you will make some fun Easter project using some simple material that you can find at your local store, not forgetting also, the Magnolia rubberstamps product make your projects SPARKLE !! :=))

Have a LOVELY Sunday !

Magnolia DT~Easter Candy Box & Doo Bee Pops Egg Tutorial

Hello friends,
I can finally show my Easter project today. I called it Easter Candy Box. All materials which are rubberstamps, patterned papers, Doo Bee Pops paper from Magnolia rubberstamps Sweden. I will send this box to Magnolia shop , so you can have a look there:-))

 This is my Easter Candy Box which I made from a paper-mache box. You can alter the box with any decoration.
 Patterned paper from the new Easter collection, very beautiful.
I decorated the box with paper flowers, feathers, miniature bird, resin eggs and an pink egg made with doo bee pop paper, the new product from Magnolia.
 View from another side. Very easy to create, just decorate as you wish.
 Inside the box. I have made some eggs from Doo Bee Pop papers. Stamped the "Happy Easter" sentiment on new Easter collection patterned paper and added some chocolates too:-)) Sweet and delicious stuff...yumm...

So, here I show you how I made the eggs, is very easy indeed.
 Punch out the oval size with puncher and trace it on Doo Bee Pops Paper.
 Cut the oval out and cut it half.
 Take one of the halve and glue it with adhesive.
 Take another halve and stick on the glued halve.
 It will look like this.Then, put some glue on one side of the egg and "open" the paper and stick on the other side.

Viola ! You have your easter egg ! Enjoy :-))

Magnolia DT Burlap Mini Album

Hello my friends,
Today I wish to share a very fun and easy project, I called it Burlap Mini Album. I made this mini album with burlap that you can buy from the local store.

This is how the front page of the mini album look. It's 5 inches x 5 .5 inches.
I masked the Spring Tree and the new collection of rubberstamps -Tilda Hiding Easter Eggs and colored with distress markers and distress ink pads.
I will send this mini album to Magnolia shop in Boras, Sweden, for those who want to have a visit there, you can  see this mini album in real very soon=))

Dragonfly from Magnolia Doohickey dies-Dragonflies, Happy Easter sentiment from Magnolia rubberstamps.

How to make the grass looks green ? I taped the Washi tape on a small piece of white cardstock then die-cut with Magnolia Doohickey dies-Grass. Paper flowers from I am Roses and Kort and Godt.

This is how the bottom of the page look, very rustic, I like it:-)

It can be opened and turned into a mini album. Firstly ,I cut a piece of burlap and fold it in 3 parts then I fold the bottom- up about 2 inches and sewn it with my mini machine.

You can put your stuff inside such as photos, tag, stamped images, cards...whatever...or store your Easter Day photos...just use your imagination :-))

I do hope you got inspired with my project and don't forget, be happy and have a nice day !

Tilda Blowing Hearts

Hello my dear friends,
Time flies !! So we step in the second month of 2013. Yileen just celebrated her birthday last month and I wish that I could making as many as projects everyday ! I am so sorry that I am so behind in creating Magnolia projects that you look forward to view it:-)) The school reopened in 2nd January and I had been busy with the school stuff for 1 month !! Phew!! I was so busy until I forgot how to color today :-((

I moved on although the result is not good but I hope I could get my crafting mojo back if I keep praticing more often. This is the card I made with Magnolia With Love Collection 2013, Tilda Blowing Hearts. I hope you love Magnolia rubberstamps as I love because they are so cute and lovely.

As always , I colored the image with distress ink-reinker and ink pad. The post stamp and the "Post card" stamps are from Magnolia With Love Collection too. So lovely=)) The card based was a card that I cut from Go-Kreate dies, I made two and glue them half to make it more bigger.
All the patterned paper from Magnolia. The love border from Magolia Doo-hickey dies.
Paper flowers from Prima marketing and kodt & Godt.

I also enter this card to the Stamp and Create Magnolia Challenge. This is a very new challenge blog and I want to support my dear friend Lacey. They have seasonal challenge and regular challenge every other Friday. Their challenge #2 is SPRING themed image with some FLOWERS/BLOOMS.

I hope you got inspired with my card and I want to show you something craft corner. You are lucky enough to see how mess it is because I just finished to make this card then I took the photos. I will organize them, for sure:-))
Where I make my project:-)) Clean enough? sorry....

My showcase corner:-))

A cabinet where I place my crafting stuff... doilies, garland, half pearls, pin, paper flowers, ribbon, lace, punches, twine, spacers, washi tape,...etc...

same cabinet, lower sewing machine, patterned papers, cardstocks, punches, glue, foam dots...etc...

Besides my cabinet I have a small shelf to put those wooden stamps, stamp cleaner, heat gun, utee, embossing powder, ribbon, lace, flowers...etc

What is this ? This is the place where I place my project and take the photos here. It's actually top of a rack.

So this is how the cabinet and the shelf look like at one of the corner.

All the rubberstamps, unmounted stamps, mounted stamps, clear stamps in this blue cabinet.

So this is where I create:-)) I am so sorry that my place is really messed and untidy...but I like it, sometimes:-))

Oh yes, Magnolia will release another new collection, Easter Collection, below is one of the rubberstamp image, so cute !

Until next post ! Have a great weekend and be happy !!
