I Want A Hippopotomus For Christmas!

I know I have been MIA lately, really sorry and I hope I can come back to posting on regular basis really soon x

My DD have her favorite song for this Xmas.

One day we were looking for some songs online for her and we came across this one, Since then that's all she wants us to put on for her, on my phone first thing in the morning and then every time she wants to sing, that will be the first one on her list lol

So I knew I had this stamp from MOTIVET so I made her a card with my own little hippo, with my new pro markers which slowly but surely I am falling in love with lol

Merry Christmas Everyone And A Happy New Year from all of us!

Thank you for stopping by!

Fine Art Prints

Hello everyone :)

I know, two posts in two days! yey lol

I think I already told you and showed you what a gifted photographer my husband is.
A few months ago, we decided for him to give up his day job and follow his dream.
He was trying to manage both while building the business but we know now that for `AMBIENCE` to work, he needs to invest all of his time into it.

So he is a family, weddings and special events photographer.
He has his own web site now which I had put a link to it on my side bar. and now there is another, a site where he is sharing his passion for photography, where anyone who values good art,can now purchase their own art prints.

The first collection, Realisation is a set of six images portraying different stages of the emotional maelstrom one experiences after the breakdown of a relationship. Alan chose to use strangers candidly in beautiful old buildings located throughout the UK with enchanting Ambiance.
Each of the six images envelopes the viewer into a sense of empathy and a yearning to discover more and find an ending to this story

This part of the site is up and running, just in time for XMAS :)

I know I have been MIA for a while now, sorry about that, I will be back soon with some new projects to show :)

A Pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #9

I really do hope I got the correct number this time LOL!

You know when you see something, sometimes you have an idea what it would look like when you finished with it? This is what happened when I stumbled across this round 10" canvas.
I wanted it to be a part of my prev work the 12"X12" Autumn canvas I made last time, that's why I stayed loyal to the shades :) Both canvases are hanging together now, and my little princes said she loved the round one best! lol

This time the challenge theme is `Champagne and Roses` And the project will have to be about `Celebrate` I am still celebrating Autumn! lol
The rest of the story is here in the photo :)

This was an inspiration from one of THE most amazing scrapbook artists I ever came across online. I have been amazed by her work since I was only just attempting to make cards! lol I`m sure you guessed by now, its Ingvild Bolme, one of Prima`s design team members, and she used to be a guest designer for swirlydoos and that's how I first discovered the amazing kits.

I used GCD papers again they are just so pretty! Prima flowers, flat backed buttons, chipboard, crackle paint, lace. another photo taken by my DH last Autumn and a journaling card with an acetate. all this beautiful, pretty things are coming with the fabulous Swirlydoo kits :)

Thank you for stopping by!

A Pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #8

Hello everyone :)

The new challenge theme my favorite season of all-`Autumn Leaves`

You have to admit, the colours we get here in Autumn are so pretty, warm browns, reds and yellows. I love it!

I have a few photos of me and my princess taken by my DH last year in Autumn of course, so I printed them all and choose one that I turned into two by cropping me out of it lol

Sorry about the photo quality here I have no Idea why it has a blue cast on it, it`s not on the actual photo.

All the materials I used are from one of my Swirlydoo kits, they do vary but I`m sure the beautiful flowers are always `Prima`.

The letters are chipboard letters that I bought at `The Range` and so is the canvas, I used yellow ocher, and burnt sienna acrylic paint on the canvas, and then dabbed my gold acrylic dabber on the corners and the ripped spaces. also used crackle paint in on the top left corner (I so love the crackle!) gold embossing powder on the chipboard letters.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lavender and lace PFOP Challeneg #7

Hello everyone :)
It`s time for the next challenge over at `A Pocket Full Of Posies` and we have some fantastic work from our brand new DT! go check out the DT`s blogs, I promise you wont regret it! lol
So this time our Challenge is sponsored by `Meljens` who was super kind and let the DT use some of her FAB digi images.

My project is one that I have been sitting on my tray for a long time, I thought it was going to be white, but my Muse has taken me somewhere else with it. Trust me when I say the photos do not do it justice :(

It is a wall hanging made out of chipboard, it is a Maya Road one (I love MY chipboard!) I painted the love hearts with Tim Holt's lavender crackle paint. The letters are painted with a darker lavender acrylic paint and after it dried I covered them with Timi`s rock candy crackle paint and when that dried I rubbed some lavender chalk ink so that the cracks will show. all flowers are from one of my Swirlydoo kits, some charms I got a while ago and I put it all together with Tim's wee rings (forgot what they are called! lol). I made the last lace flower myself and the brads I used, some are from my stash and some are from my another one of my Swirlydoo kits :)
all the Lace is from my stash and what would I have done without my glue gun! Love it! hee hee

Sorry about the photo quality, my photographer was rather busy this week so I had to use a different camera.

Thanks for stopping by! Can`t wait to see all of your makes for this fun challenge!

A Pocket Full Of Posies, Challenge #6 Floral Fantasy!

Hi Everyone!

First I would like to say goodbye to Katie, who is our `challenge blog` owner and leaving the blog and us, the DT, in the trusted hands of Jan and Sandie.
Will still stay in touch my sweet and talented friend :) X
And welcome to Jan, who already is making the DT experience exciting and promising! Don`t forget if you would like to apply for the DT position to go to the prev post on our challenge blog and follow the instructions there!

So our challenge for the next couple of weeks is sponsored by `Craft Brulee`, who was super sweet and sent us some goodies for the challenges she is sponsoring. For this one I used one of her stunning yoyo flowers who made the purple glittered letters really stick out after I added it as my DH noticed them strait away! lol

`Floral Fantasy` is the theme of our new challenge :) and I can not wait to see what you all will come up with!

It is my second commission canvas to the same lady, this time it is for her cute little girl.
I sent hubby dearest to take some snaps of the kiddies :)

Again DP paper is GCD I am completely inlove with GCD papers, every time I go to my local craft shop, I come out with a pack! lol
`Wild Orchid` flowers combined with `Prima` that I got with one of my swirlydoos kit, SU! card stock, lace from my local fabric shop and a brown ribbon that I`m afraid don`t really know who is it by.

The journaling tag was made with one of my Unity stamps, I used to be a subscriber but ran out of storage! hee hee.

Will add some challenges later!

Thanks For Stopping By!

By The Cute And Girly September Challenge!

Hi everyone!
I`m sorry I`m so so late with my post!

This month we have nnalorac hosting the challenge and her theme for this month is `Indian Summer`

It was quite a challenge for me, but then I thought...In the UK Summer, Indian or Summer! so my makes for this month reflecting the weather we've had for the past couple of weeks, it rained for two days solid, and that when I made the new commission canvas for a lovely lady who had found me on FB. I ended up falling in love with what I made lol

I used SU! DP papers, Ranger distress ink, Prima flowers and acetate from one of my wonderful Swirlydoos kits, lace from my local fabric shop, Wild Orchid Flowers, some chipboard letters I got from `The Range` and a round piece of chipboard that came with the `Dusty Attic` frame I had used on my 4" X4" chipboard LO in my prev post.

I will take some more photos, Don`t know why my camera was taking such grainy photos, need DH to have a look as the ISO is law and it should be grainy..

My Second make for this month is a card I had made for a very good friend of mine and it will be added to a basket of goodies to celebrate the Jewish New year which will be celebrated on this coming Monday :)
One of our sponsors this month is Whimsy Stamps who was so kind and gave us some images to use, I used little red riding hood, coloured it with my Tombows and again some SU! dp, one of Geraldine` amazing flower that she sent to me in one of the Tag swaps I entered, as part of the swap and an Wild Orchid flower again:)

And you can find our challenge HERE and check my DT teamies who came up with some wonderfully beautiful creations :-)
Will add a few challenges later, maybe add some photos as well

Thanks for stopping by!

A pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #5

Winged Things!
Hello everyone :)

Sorry for the delay in the post, every time I try to use the scheduled one it doesn't seem to work and then I have endless arguments with my lap top, but it wont publish it when it is told! lol

So love the theme for our new challenge, it is sponsored by Wimsey Stamps and the gals had done a fab job with the images, I love all the cards!

My project is a long and over due one...

It is a mini swap I took part of back in May...

Both Cathy and I had agreed to take our time on the project. I was so nervous making Cathy a mini, she is so amazingly talented, own her wonderful craft shop, runs a fab challenge blog with an even more fab DT team. really, I got cold feet when I found out who I am suppose to prepare the swap for, I started it endless of times and binned it over and over again.

I really hope she likes what I had made her.Yes I finally finished it and shipped it over to Cathy, she is on holiday so I`m not sure whether she has got it yet.

Warning it will be a photo heavy post! lol

I used mount board and cut it into the size I needed, the papers are a mixture of BG and Docrafts hemp paper, I have got the hemp paper from my prev swap partner who is another very talented friend of mine- Katie in our first mini swap. The flowers {green} are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the white one is a Prima one.

The flowers on the cover are Prima as well, I won them on Julies` show ages ago together with the pearls flower bling I used. The flower on the flower shaped page I had made myself. I learned how to make them ages ago on Marions` YouTube channel.

The white and pink flower I used on the mini envelope I got from Steph in one of her amazing give aways.

The bling on the flower page I made myself. The strawberry and the butterfly are cut with my Sizzix dies and embossed with heat and stick powder and glitter. Oh and the flower is also cut with my trusted Sizzix and painted with acrylic paints and crackle paint and some distrestickles in rock candy.

Most of the pages are painted with acrylic paints and the front has the crackle and distrestickles as well on the cover and the letters.

The acetates I used are from our local craft shop and they are part of the pages underneath them.

The green flowers are Wild Orchid that I glimmer misted.

Can`t wait to see what you guys have created! this is where you can find our new challenge: Winged Things

Thank you for stopping by!

I`ll be back later with the card I had made to go with the mini and some challenges X

Pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #4 Our Sparkly Love!

Hello everyone!

I have to say that if I wasn`t a DT member in PKFOP and BTC&G My posts would probably have longer between them, and I am only saying that because, I am really happy that I get to sit and craft so often lately!
So this week it is my turn to host the new challenge, and the theme is `All That Glitter`
Anything glitzy and shiny, remember you will need to dd flowers to your projects if you want to be eligible for the prize!

I had an idea in my head for some time, of what to do with the fab photos, DH took of my princess and I. So today, I had three hours to sit and make this LO. It is made out of 9 {!} 4X4 mount boards cut by me (it took ages! lol)
gcd DP Paris nights (told you I will get the name lol) I just LOVE those DP I think it is my third project with them.

My Swirlydoos kits have finlay been used by me (They are always too pretty for using! haha), prima flowers, butterflies, swirls, Acrylic paint, crackle Timi paint, Dusty attic frame, white embossing powder.
I love it! lol

I think I need to get one of those really cool hangers for it, does anyone know where I can find it? and also the big metal rings for the binding as I am not happy with the ribbons.

So hurry up and have a look at all the fantastic makes from our very talented PFOP DT!
Can`t wait to see what you all came up with! HERE!

Thank you for stopping by and I will add some challenges later x

International Banner Swap Anyone? {sign up until the 12th Aug}

Hello everyone!

I was wondering if any of you guys would be interested in a banner swap?
Triangle banner that will spell the word C R E A T E
You can make them out of Canvas or chipboard or mount board, I will give the measures later on.
So that means I will divide us into groups of 6, each one of us will prepare a banner for each member of the group with the same letter for example
I will have to make 6 banners with the letter `C and the next one in my group will make four banners with the letter R` and so on.
let me know if you are interested by adding a comment to this post, you have until 12th august to sign up and Banners should be prepared an sent by Sept 12th.

The requirement for this swap is that you must have some sort of reliable website to participate: a blog, shop, FB etc

The swap is open to new and experienced crafters, just make sure you are making something at the same level you would like to receive yourself.
Don`t forget we are here to have fun, meet other crafters and learn from each other x
Thanks For Stopping By!

I gave it to her today at work and she loves it :-)

So here are some photos:
