Happy New Year

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend
Have lived and loved and labored here
And made of it a happy year

Thank you all for your Comments & Words of Encouragement!!

Cards from folded paperbags

I bought these paperbags a while ago, from a YouTube friend in the US. They normaly make a mini album from these bags. I really love the vintage look of them and had the idea to make some cards.




Happy Wednesday (:o)

Alter it Monthly

The theme on Alter it Monthly in the very last challenge is *celestial*

I had the idea to make something celestial for two of my favorite blogging friends for christmas. Something you can display but not only on christmas. The idea was born after reading  this post. I had to handcut, because i have no dies. I used cardboard and drawed the house shapes by hand.
Here is my celestial triptych for the last challenge:






One of my gifts arrived on time and you can see the back of the triptych here, the other one needs a little bit longer and is still on it's way to Italy (:o)
I am sad that Alter it Monthly is ending. Thank's to the DT for all the work and inspirations.

Toilet Paper Roll - Minibook - Christmas

This Mini was made for a YouTube friend in the USA.

 Paint the toilet rolls with acryl paint and let them dry. Then, run them thru the cuttlebug to get them flat.
Measure the inside and cut some tags. Leave a bit room for the binding rings....
Take the paper of your choice and adhere.
Embellish








The paperline i used, is from Karen Marie Klip- Denmark. You'll find the 12 sheets of paper here and the embellish sheet here.

If you want to see all the pull outs, you can watch my YouTube Video



Happy Monday and thanks soooooo much for all your kind comments (:o)
