the box

A collegue of mine has broken her leg. When we met, I felt the need to make a gift for her. So I made a little box with a notecard and a little present inside.
I absolutely adore making these little boxes. Too bad I couldn't get it on pictures very well (maybe because it sparkles too much?)
I have made some other boxes too but they are for a friend so I can't show them yet.
Hope you like them.

kleurenkaart in het PAARS!

Vorige week deed Martina een originele oproep om één dag in de week een kaartje te maken in dezelfde kleur. Ik vond het zo'n leuk idee! Zou het niet geweldig zijn als dit uitgroeit en we op een dag allemaal dezelfde kleurtjes zien verschijnen in blogland?
Ik ben alvast fan en doe mee aan de eerste kleurendag, met het kleurtje PAARS!
Ik ga proberen om elke week een kaartje te maken met de themakleur. Leuk om kaartjes te maken in verschillende kleurtjes (en ik hou van ton-sur-tonkaarten) en geweldig om mijn voorraad aan te laten groeien.

Hidden journaling

Another Christmas baulb (I really love making these), but one with a twist.

You can take the ribbon and twist the card, so a hidden message appears. Surprise!
In case you are wondering what the little dots in the background are... I 'cuttlebugged' (is this even a verb?) it with my Dots die.
Add some faux stitching as well to make it look a bit more interesting.

And here's the inside... Another message and some room to leave a personal note.

And the backside. Really advertising my blog here. LOL.

Thanks for looking! Hope you like it.
And in case you got some inspiration of your own looking at my baulbs, I would love to see your creations as well.

Stamp ~ Pipoos
Papers ~ Christmas Stack
Punches ~ Snowflakes (Pipoos)
Extra's ~ Cutllebug, white marker, black marker, ribbon

Christmas in a baulb

After making a lot of Christmas cards, I thought: why not make something different next year? Like a card baulb you can put in your tree after recieving it.
After hard thinking how I was going to cut all these circles, I found a baulb template in a book store with a 30% discount. Yeah!

So this is the front of the card, using a lovely Whiff of Joy stamp. A paper doily behind the stamp and some doodles made with my Cutllebug, using a Whiff of Joy die.
Some flowers, eyelets and pearls and offcourse some Stickles to top it off.

I couldn't leave the inside as it was, so had fun decorating it as well. Used a circle maker (worth every cent because it leaves NO holes in the middle!!) and cut out some circles.
Stamped a sentiment on the top side with Distress ink (Faded jeans) and on the other half I decorated with some Pipoos snowflake punches.

And then the backside... If it wasn't clear enough. This is one hand-made card baulb! LOL

A fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers. My fingers were itching and finally had some time to craft again, so just had to participate.
Still had some fabulous paper from MME lying on my desk, so the choice was easily made.
