Happy New Year! and a very exciting NEWS!

hello scrappy friends!

i wish you all the BEST and a lot of crafty pleasures in the coming 2015!

it is 1st of JANUARY and i've got a lovely NEWS to begin the NEW YEAR with - i've been invited to join SA CRAFTERS' amazing design team! YAY! 

to introduce ourselves, we've created a special project with out favourite SA CRAFTERS' products - you can view all the different creations on SA CRAFTERS' blog. each designer has posted a picture of their project and a short video on how it is done. so, from now on, instead of just describing my creative process to you, i'm also going to show it to you on my YOUTUBE channel.


for this page i decided to work with one of the summer pictures i took of EMMA - my goddaughter - full of bright colours and smiles, just as EMMA is! so, naturally WEBSTER'S PAGES "modern romance" paper line was the perfect choice for this project!

to create the background i used pattern paper, SA CRAFTERS' 6 x 6" big honeycomb stencil and modelling paste. after the paste was dry, i spattered the background with pink GLIMMER MIST.

to decorate the edges i used WEBSTER'S PAGES washi tape.

the beautiful flowers are from WEBSTER'S PAGES - poetry pink bloomers, and from KAISERCRAFT - mini white roses. the white lace is also from WEBSTER'S - winner ruffle.

because my background paper was so rich in illustrations, i carefully separated the bird cage and some of the large flowers and tucked my embellishments and picture under.

the words for the title i also fussy cut from the pattern papers. and as you can see i used different wooden embellishments from SA CRAFTERS - wood mini heart sentiments - i choose the CUTIE of course!

then i coloured the heart of the bird house (with pink liquid pearls) and added some bird to my blossoms. i used all of the wooden embellishments in their natural colour - they just look so good!

i hope you enjoyed today's post! i surely had fun creating it!

hugs 'n smiles,
