Two CAS cards…

… for two special ladies. Somehow I got stuck on this type of cards. Recently I made something similar, and today I combined that inspiration with the CASE Study Challenge.
IMG_3211 IMG_3216I hope you find it nice too. It is really fun and relaxing to make them. And one can combine so many stamps and sketches. Love the simplicity and all the possibilities.

A project I was working on

Tags

, , ,

Today I decided to share a project I have made using several Spellbinders Dies. I was in the mood to create something using as many Spellbinders Dies possible. Yes, it was one of those days when I go crazy about all those Dies I have. Well, it was made for a little girl and I wanted to use just a bit of color and a lot of white. Since I already had a similar post about how I make mini photo albums, and how the owner should finish it, this time I decided to explain the procedure in Croatian. Basically, all you need to do is cut out and place the photos first, and then go crazy with the embellishments that one receives together with the album. And here are several ideas.

***

Uz svaki foto album dolazi nekoliko ukrasa kojima je potrebno dovršiti ukrašavanje.
IMG_3171Ovdje, na prvoj stranici, potrebno je izrezati fotografiju u obliku kruga i umetnut ju ispod čipke i trake. Dodatno ukrašavanje možda i nije potrebno (sve ovisi o vašem ukusu).
IMG_3169Okrugla fotografija dolazi, naravno, i na drugoj stranici. Ovdje preporučam manju fotografiju kako bi se još uvijek vidio ostatak (rub) čipkice. Na samu fotografiju može se staviti ovaj tzv. tag u koji se može upisati neki datum, ime ili drugi sličan tekst. A na trećoj stranici koja je više ovalnog oblika, poslužila sam se malenom drvenom kvačicom koja može biti pričvršćena izravno na fotografiju. Mali praktičan savjet bi bio da kvačicu zalijepite kako bi ostala čvrsto na mjestu.
IMG_3172Uz tagove raznih oblika u paketić volim staviti i ukrase prigodne za dječje projekte. Tako se možete poigrati avionima, medom ili npr. patkom, koji se lijepe na fotografije (obično uz rub), a sve se dodatno može još ukrasiti špagom ili npr. gumbićima (vidi ovaj projekt).
IMG_3181Kako je ovaj projekt namijenjen djevojčici, cvjetići su bili nezaobilazni. Listiće možete zalijepiti običnim ljepilom za papir, i potom u sredinu staviti cvjetić. Naravno, sve se lijepi na samu fotografiju.
IMG_3182Na ovoj se stranici slika umeće ispod trakice, a poželjno je nakon toga ispod čvora mašne staviti tanju ljepljivu spužvu i to sve pričvrstiti na samu fotografiju, kako bi se cijeli ukras bolje držao.
IMG_3189Prije nego zalijepite fotografiju na ovaj list, običnom ljepljivom trakom zalijepite traku za zadnji dio fotografije i tek nakon toga sve zalijepite u album. Sviđa mi se što srca možete i nakon ljepljenja micati.
IMG_3191Još pokoji cvjetić ili tag nije na odmet.
IMG_3204 IMG_3198Ovo su samo neke ideje i smjernice, no ne smijemo zaboraviti da je u kreativnom radu najvažnije uživati. ;)

Za kraj evo nekoliko općenitih savjeta:

  • Pokušajte svoj album ispuniti fotografijama na kojima prevladavaju iste boje ili čak crno bijelim fotografijama. Nije loše isplanirati tijek albuma, i potom prionuti sakupljanju fotografija ili možda samom fotografiranju. Budući da se radi o mini foto albumu, najbolje je koristiti fotografije na kojima su lica veća (vidi primjer ovdje). To bi značilo da grupne fotografije nisu najbolji izbor za ovu vrstu albuma).
  • Kako bi se postigo efekt trodimenzionalnosti, gotovo sve slike ili ukrasi mogu se lijepiti malenim ljepljivim jastučićima koji dolaze zajedno s ukrasima. Oni se postavljaju na ključna mjesta ali ne preblizu rubu kako bi fotografija ili ukras stabilno stajao.
  • Uvez ovog albuma je dosta jednostavan. Prilikom listanja traka se jednostavno može opustiti, a po završetku listanja jednako tako se može zategnuti.

Hi there! Today I have a very special post. I made a card inspired by several challenges, but my motivation was a bit different this time. This month I am sponsoring Craft-alnica Challenges, and I decided to play along. I have created this card using my Croatian sentiment (Congratulations!) and a drawing one can buy at the Squigglefly store. Check out the challenge, and join in the fun. Each time there will be a different prize.

What a great weekend – part two

Today I will share with you all about the greatest Sunday ever. We were in a need of some relaxing and spending time in the open, so my hubby decided that we will go to a small town called Petrinja. There live a bunch of people that just love to be outdoors and love to gather and eat all that one can find on a meadow or in the forest. You can check their Facebook page or their web page. And if you ever want to learn something about herbs one can find in Croatia (and eat too), just let them know and they will organize a great workshop (and you will not leave hungry, trust me). ;)
Anyway, here are some photos of the things we saw, i.e. ate.
IMG_2972aIMG_3016aIMG_3040aI always wanted to see how it is done and taste birch sap.
IMG_2991aAnd here is my hubby enjoying his meal of the day – bacon with some fresh bear leek. ;D
IMG_3042aAt the very end the instructors made some tee from the herbs we gathered, and we also had some snacks. Everything had in it herbs you can find outdoors.
IMG_3048aI was especially excited by the fact that you can eat violets. The salad swept me of my feet.
IMG_3053aThat was a great Sunday indeed. :)

What a great weekend – part one

Hello dear friends! Last week was a hard one for me and my hubby. Maybe more for him since he was the one being sick. We even had to cancel our trip we were planning for the weekend. But, since he was feeling a bit better and the weather was so nice, on Saturday we decided to take a short walk in the forest.
It was beautiful and so peaceful. We walked a bit and then decided to lie down in our hammocks.
We were so quite that a beautiful fox passed by us while we were in hammocks, and on our way back we saw a couple of deer. Here are several photos for you to enjoy and you can even play a game and see if you can spot the deer on the last one. ;)

CAS Baby Card

Hi there! I made today a really simple baby card using one of my newest drawings that is available for purchase over at the Squigglefly store.
IMG_2917IMG_2905I was inspired by these three challenges: Addicted to CAS, Sweet Stampin’ Challenge (Three Men and a Baby), and CAS(E) this Sketch.
Well, I hope you find it sweet and just a bit inspiring. Thank you for all your love and support. ;)
