My Love to you !

Hello friends,
Today I have a wall hanging deco to share. It's for MDUC #229 Hearts and Flowers challenge !
Please join us and let the creativity blooms !
I have a small wall hanging deco which I made from a wooden chipboard. It's about 4" x 4".
 I glued some blank puzzle pieces which you can get at the craft store on the white chipboard. Then I colored the puzzle pieces with various distress inks , for example: mustard seed, fired brick and vintage photo. Then I decorated the deco with beautiful embelishements and paper flowers.

 Here is a close up of the photos. I used Magnolia "Love" heart-shaped sentiment for my focal point. Butterfly dies cut out from Magnolia Doohickey. Hearts embelishments, pearl string from my stash and Live and Love craft, UK.

I tied the ribbon at the puzzle pieces and it can be hung at the wall. Perfect for decoration or a small gift for your love one !
I hope you had fun for enjoying paper crafting as I do ! Please come and join us at MDUC, my sweet teamies have their fabulous creation !
See you in next post !

Where I create.........2014

Hello my friends,
These two days I reorganized my crafting station and I am able to share with you where I create all my projects. I don't have a crafting room nor a fancy studio, but I just have a small corner in my house that I squeezed all the crafting supplies here. Hopefully I have a own crafting room in the future:-))

 Where should I start ? Ok, start from the top. Hubby made a rack for me couple years ago with two  flat wooden panel. I kept some of my cards or my friends cards on it. At the wall I have some beautiful pictures which I got from decorating magazine like Country Home and Country Living. 
I hang some of my cards or my friends cards on the lace. Beside my crafting table that is a cabinet that I store my spellbinders, dies, glues, scissors, inks, etc. You can view them at the next picture.
My crafting table, Quite small but big enough for me to craft. If I don't craft, it's a place for me to relax or read. I keep my VIP crafting stuff together, for example distress ink- walnut stain, glue, few stamps that I use them quite often. I have my babies photos on my table too.
 Here you can see I hang my dies on the wall. From scissors, glue, stickles, crackle paint, embossing enamel, embossing powder, distress inks, paint brush, spellbinders, Tim Holtz alteration dies, cuttlebug embossing folder, etc. I kept them beside my crafting table, as I can use them as I see them :-))
 I have a wooden cabinet that I store my crafting stuff. Here I store my embelishments. Buttons, film strips, half pearls,trinkets, resin, doily, brads, etc...I keep telling myself I don't have any budget to buy new stuff this year.....well, we will see.....:-))
 Here I store my paper flowers. I have Prima Marketing, Petaloo, I am Roses, Kodt & Godt and some from local store that I don't know their brand. Paper flower is a must for my project.
 Here is lace store. There is a four deck drawers that I kept all my lace. You can notice I have some outside the drawers too. I have chessecloth, burlap, and some of the paper flowers I keep here too. { No more space out there}. I have empty jars that I kept for altered project.

I hope you enjoy viewing my little corner. If you are interested in anything you notice on my crafting supplies, don't hesitate to contact me, we can swap these crafting supplies!  My girl just celebrated her birthday and hope that you have a great day , everyday ! <3

MDUC #228 Doohickeys ONLY ~Mid challenge reminder

 Hello my friends,

Today I have a card to share with no Tilda or Edwin...they were going for Chinese New Year holiday ...ha ha, no. :-) Actually we have new challenge at MDUC with Doohickeys ONLY ( no image). That means - no images are to be used, yep! No Tilda or Edwin or any other 'picture' stamp.
You may use a sentiment (any company) if you wish!

 So, for my card, I used three Magnolia Doohickeys - Swirl dies,Cute corner dies,Peonies dies. I made the two swirl dies as a heart and the cute corner dies as the four corner on the card.

 For the background, I colored the white cardstock with various colors of Distress inks. Then , stamped with Magnolia "Old Script" background.
 Paper flowers from Prima, ribbon, pearl pin from Live and Love Craft. I stamped Magnolia "Love" sentiment on a white tag. Half pearl from Kaiser.

Hope that you will join our challenge at MDUC and don't forget to view my teamies beautiful work to get inspired.
