I have a very quick post today because I am using my old laptop and it's pretty slow and I wonder if it will shut down suddenly to delete all my what's happened? My laptop had been broke down by my very :genius" son!!! I was so angry !!! arrrrgggh....I will go to buy a new laptop for my own use once the computer shop open !!

This a tag that I want to give my hubby tomorrow morning for the valentine day:-=)) I hope he doesn't mind because it;s too girly I think....haha...whatever....He is my valentine and I thank him for the love he gives me...:-))

It;s a simple tag. I didn't use any dies or complicated materials. Keep it simple for a guy:=))
All patterned paper from Magnolia With Love Collection, paper flowers from I am roses, I colored the image with distress markers.

Magnolia DT Burlap Mini Album

Hello my friends,
Today I wish to share a very fun and easy project, I called it Burlap Mini Album. I made this mini album with burlap that you can buy from the local store.

This is how the front page of the mini album look. It's 5 inches x 5 .5 inches.
I masked the Spring Tree and the new collection of rubberstamps -Tilda Hiding Easter Eggs and colored with distress markers and distress ink pads.
I will send this mini album to Magnolia shop in Boras, Sweden, for those who want to have a visit there, you can  see this mini album in real very soon=))

Dragonfly from Magnolia Doohickey dies-Dragonflies, Happy Easter sentiment from Magnolia rubberstamps.

How to make the grass looks green ? I taped the Washi tape on a small piece of white cardstock then die-cut with Magnolia Doohickey dies-Grass. Paper flowers from I am Roses and Kort and Godt.

This is how the bottom of the page look, very rustic, I like it:-)

It can be opened and turned into a mini album. Firstly ,I cut a piece of burlap and fold it in 3 parts then I fold the bottom- up about 2 inches and sewn it with my mini machine.

You can put your stuff inside such as photos, tag, stamped images, cards...whatever...or store your Easter Day photos...just use your imagination :-))

I do hope you got inspired with my project and don't forget, be happy and have a nice day !

Tilda Blowing Hearts

Hello my dear friends,
Time flies !! So we step in the second month of 2013. Yileen just celebrated her birthday last month and I wish that I could making as many as projects everyday ! I am so sorry that I am so behind in creating Magnolia projects that you look forward to view it:-)) The school reopened in 2nd January and I had been busy with the school stuff for 1 month !! Phew!! I was so busy until I forgot how to color today :-((

I moved on although the result is not good but I hope I could get my crafting mojo back if I keep praticing more often. This is the card I made with Magnolia With Love Collection 2013, Tilda Blowing Hearts. I hope you love Magnolia rubberstamps as I love because they are so cute and lovely.

As always , I colored the image with distress ink-reinker and ink pad. The post stamp and the "Post card" stamps are from Magnolia With Love Collection too. So lovely=)) The card based was a card that I cut from Go-Kreate dies, I made two and glue them half to make it more bigger.
All the patterned paper from Magnolia. The love border from Magolia Doo-hickey dies.
Paper flowers from Prima marketing and kodt & Godt.

I hope you got inspired with my card and I want to show you something craft corner. You are lucky enough to see how mess it is because I just finished to make this card then I took the photos. I will organize them, for sure:-))
Where I make my project:-)) Clean enough? sorry....

My showcase corner:-))

A cabinet where I place my crafting stuff... doilies, garland, half pearls, pin, paper flowers, ribbon, lace, punches, twine, spacers, washi tape,...etc...

same cabinet, lower sewing machine, patterned papers, cardstocks, punches, glue, foam dots...etc...

Besides my cabinet I have a small shelf to put those wooden stamps, stamp cleaner, heat gun, utee, embossing powder, ribbon, lace, flowers...etc

What is this ? This is the place where I place my project and take the photos here. It's actually top of a rack.

So this is how the cabinet and the shelf look like at one of the corner.

All the rubberstamps, unmounted stamps, mounted stamps, clear stamps in this blue cabinet.

So this is where I create:-)) I am so sorry that my place is really messed and untidy...but I like it, sometimes:-))
Oh yes, Magnolia will release another new collection, Easter Collection, below is one of the rubberstamp image, so cute !

Until next post ! Have a great weekend and be happy !!
