A night before Christmas - for Zeus and Zoe

Hi there!
December days just disappear in the blink of an week left to Christmas Eve??? can it be true?
Here's a latest layout which I did with my DT kit from Zeus and Zoe etsy store. My daughter was dressed as gingerbread girl and I thought it a perfect shot to frame with the vintage goodies from my kit :)

There is a fantastic mood board on Zeus and Zoe blog, so have a look if you are in a mood (or need) to play!

One December day...

Although I don't have a December Daily, I have a little cosy December scene to share today: my daughter decorating her 'pepparkakshus'.
Luckily she didn't eat up all the candies before the house was ready :)
I used the beautiful Christmas collection from Maja Design, A Gift for You, plus some leftovers from older papers and Prima flowers.

Thanks for looking here today!

12 Days of Christmas with Prima

Just popping in to share another Christmas card in pastels.
I wanted to play with 12 Days of Christmas challenge and my inspiration came from Day 2 - Prima Metal Dies. I used Prima Epiphany collection and a metal doily die.

Thanks for looking!

Last project for DT OUAS

It's a bit sad post today, showcasing my last DT project for OUAS. You have probably seen the announcement about OUAS blog closure.
Well, I hope you take the chance to play with us one more time! Let's make it the biggest month EVER!

Here's my take on the theme for this challenge:

December it's s my birth month, it's also my 12th month with OUAS DT and I'm celebrating this with a layout about me. On the backside I placed a personal note to myself.

Here's our last Once Upon A Sketch challenge info:

Journalling Theme: "It's December..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is!

Christmas cards in pastels

Hello there!
Somehow I couldn't get going with Christmas cards this year, but now even I start slowly to feel the spirit :)

I like to play with some non-traditional schemes and my first 2 cards came out in pastels.
I picked some lovely collections from Maja Design to play with (Vintage Frost Basics, Vintage Summer Basics) and my Big Shot was steaming hot. I prepared almost the same base in grey tones for both cards, just decided to spice it up with different colours of embellishments.
Hope you like it!

Time flies - Words & Paintery

Few weeks ago a new challenge blog was started and it gives just the kind of inspiration I really like, it's not too obvious, just giving enough to kick the creative process.
October word is Paintery.

Paitery inspired me to create watercolour effect on the plain cardstock. I stamped the roses with the different stamps, I added colours, highlights and shadows , using watercolours and white pen.
I finished of with some background stamping, splatters and white stencil.

Some details:

This is the Words& Paintery inspiration and I submit my painterly project for the October challenge:)

Vacation memories

Perhaps I'm boring saying this over and over again but November is no fun in this part of the world...
The only positive thing I can find are the long, dark , early evenings = more time spent at home = more time for crafting - hopefully :)
It's already hard to believe that only a week ago we've been wearing shorts and tank tops... I hope our charged batteries will last until the cosy December starts :)
To keep the memories alive, one of our vacation selfies from the beach.

Supplies: UHK Gallery Naval Treaty, Butterfly Effect
