Christmas pop-up tag and tee-pee card

Hello world!

I missed you all so much, i missed posting and of course creating. I have not had the time to create lately, mainly because i had to work almost non-stop. However, you know very well how it is to have a hobby that you love, you can't stay away for to long. So these last 2 days i managed to steal some time for me and create 2 things that i just learned. It's a tee-pee card that i saw some time ago at someone and instantly wanted to know how it's done. And while browsing for that i discovered another cool thing that i fell in love with right away, so i made that one too ;). Let's see, first the tee-pee card which looks exactly like a tent, so it has 3 sides to decorate ;):
...and from the side:
It could be folded to be perfectly flat so you can send it in an envelope, but i did not have a velcro so i did not do it :P. Hope you like it :).
Aha, so now the sweet pop-up gift tag, which looks so cool and is so cheap to do, it only requested half a sheet of 30x30 cm cardstock.
Here it is closed, on the front side:
...closed, on the other side:
...closed, view from the side:
...and here it's open:
...and open, view from the side:
It's perfect to be used as a gift tag, attached to the gifts you make for Christmas, your dear ones will be amazed i promise you when they will see it ;). So have fun creating and preparing for Christmas and see you as soon as i can again ;). Until then, have a blessed time :)!

Halloween door sign :P

Hello everyone and Happy Fridayyyyy!!! 
The weekend is here and we are all in such a good mood just because of this ;). Let me put you in an even better - and hopefully creative - mood with a spooky door sign i made for our friend Klasse, who loves his skulls :P. 
I promised i would post it and, considering that Halloween is soon here, i thought you might need a bit of an "inspiration boost" :P. 
Hope you like it at least as much as he did. We have one too, of course, but not spooky, and he said his doorsign is much nicer than ours :)))). I loved to hear that, believe me. Here it is:
 ...and here is ours, which is one of my first creations :):
That was is, now i let you enjoy your last working hours for today and prepare for the weekend. I hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you'll do :). 
See yaaa!

1st page in Our Family Album

Hello world :)!
Im back again :P! 
And even though i said i would be back with the door sign i made for our friend, im back with a scrapbooking page, the one that represents the start of our FAMILY ALBUM :). You probably remember those old pictures of my family and their friends. Well, i did not have much patience and i started scrapping them. Of course, first i scanned them, so they remain in electronic format also. 
So, this page is focused on my grandparents from both sides :). Unfortunately, none of them is alive, the last one to go was my grandmother from my father's side. The album will be in English, so that, later in time, everyone in our family - and not only - understands it :). The page is in 20x20 format, as the album. Let's see how it looks.
Down the memory lane:
...and into the journaling now:
...more focus on the photos and embellies:
...and the sketch:
I will submit this LO to 2 challenges: Get Picky's 12th challenge and Bird is the Word's MEMORY challenge.
I hope you like it and inspires you. Now im working on another page for the same album, soon i'll be done and will post it here, of course.
The door sign i will post as soon as i get to take a photo of it, as promised ;).
Until next time, i wish you all a wonderful week filled with joy :)!

Butterfly mini-album ♥

Hello world and welcome back into my happy-scrappy world ;)!
Im back again and i can tell & show you that my time has been productive :P. Im very glad to let you know that i finished my first mini-album. And it has a lovely shape - that of a butterfly. And not only the shape, but the paper itself is all full of...butterflies ;). So full you would say i´m in love - and you would not be wrong ♥.
I will submit this to the current mini-album challenge organized by SvenskScrapbooking. The album is about us, me and my husband, and it includes photos taken since we met until the wedding moment. It´s called "Bits & pieces of US". I did not decorate the verso of the pages, it would have looked to full from my point of view and the paper structure was not that strong either. Let´s see how it looks:
The cover:

Page 1:
...with some focus on some embellies:
Page 2:
Page 3 with the title "Crazy is like crazy does" - a quote from Homer Simpson (would you ever guess that we like The Simpsons :D?):
Page 4, with no title, but with some images telling what we like: coffee (my dear husband) and strawberries (poor little me :P):
...and the final page "Happy ever after":
The back cover:
I hope it´s pretty visible the fact that i heat-embossed and dry-embossed the background paper (see the corners). And also that i´ve used the Nestabilities for the first time now (page 2 and 4).
I do hope you like it, my husband liked it and that is extremely important to me. He always tells me when he does not like something, so now im happy :P.
I will get back as soon as i manage to take some good photos of a door sign a made for our friend Klasse. A sign that i had much fun working on and that he thinks looks much better than our own :))))). I must say i like that.
Until next time, i wish you all the best!!!

..on the other side, for those of you who don't know how spellbinders look like:
It's my 1st set of nestabilities and im so excited about it, oh ♥ !!! Now i need to buy an embossing mat, to be able to emboss and stencil with them in the Cuttlebug. Meanwhile, i can just cut with them.
I will get back to you when i will create something based on them :). 
Until then, i wish you all the best :) ♥ !!!

Kissing the prince of my dreams ♥

Hi everyone and thanks so much for all your messages and emails!
You made me feel so good, thanks a lot ♥!!!
Im back again after a 3 weeks break from scrapbooking. It was hard, i promise you. But it's so good to be back!!! I won't be long and i will just show you what i did: a sweet and slightly humoristic page, i would say.
All the materials i used (except the stamps and inks) are from Happy Scrappy, at very law prices for almost EVERY PRODUCT in the shop. 
Kissing the prince of my DREAMS? Yes!!!
Focus on the central area & embellies:
Focus on the heat embossed butterflies:
I love when fairytales come true ♥! Ours began in May 2006
Hope you like it :). These pictures were taken in Innsbruck, at the Botanical Garden, in April 2006. And just 1 month later i met the prince of my dreams ♥. Can it be a consequence of the fact that i "kissed" that frog :P?

I will submit this LO to the following challenges:

Until next time i will be here again, i hope you will enjoy these summer days, before autumn installs itself :). All the best to all of you :)!

Memorabilia from my family

Hello everyone and welcome back!
I don't even know how long it's been since the last time i posted something. Today im back with something totally different than my usual subject :P. Yesterday it's been a grey and stormy day and i was in the mood to do something...different. So, based on the fact that some nights ago, before falling asleep, i was thinking that i should sometime scan the old pictures that i have before i start scrapping them, this idea hit me and so it all started :). 
And i can't tell you how nice it felt. It's charming to read on the back of those photos and see who they are and try to guess from what part of your family they come and admire the elegance and style of those times. I love that period, as many of you do. So this is why i decided to share my joy with you and i hope you will enjoy. Here are some of my relatives.
When i look at her the first thing i see is her dancing charleston or foxtrot in one of those times' restaurants - absolutely charming:
A relative, pilot in the Romanian army:
Some family friends:
My father's father (looking at the photographer) together with a friend:
My great grandfather from my mother's side:
My mother's father (no. 23):
My mother's father again, before getting married:
His future wife, already married here :):
...and in the end a postcard from 1906:

I appreciate this hobby of mine more and more now, because it makes me realise how important these pictures are and how important it is to keep such memories and to take as many photos as possible during our lives (and to document them). I love scrapbooking!!!
