Birthday Card for a World Traveler

Hi Everyone!

A quick post to share a new card with you ~
A birthday card/treat holder for a world traveler who's turning 53!

The card/treat holder is done like a vintage suitcase.

I have used Tim Holtz's Industrious Metal Technique for the 
embossed metal portions of the case.

Inside the card, there is a compartment to hold a yummy Lindt chocolate bar,
and a sleeve holder for gift cards and tags.

Here is the back side of the card.

Stamp, dies, designer paper, and sentiments are all Tim Holtz.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Minion Slippers

Hello Friends!

Last year, I decided to learn crocheting and knitting.
I enjoy the portability of knitting and crocheting, it certainly filled many time gaps 
while waiting for mom's cancer treatments in the hospital. 

I have made so many pairs of crocheted Minion slippers. I have lost counts.
They are a big hit among friends and co-workers.

Here are some pics of my crocheted Minion slippers

Yarn ~ Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
Crochet Hook ~ Metric 4.25mm or USA G hook
I have found some free patterns in Drops Designs and
modify the pattern for my slippers.

I hand sewed felt fabric to the slipper soles and applied clear bathroom silicon
so they are not slippery on smooth surfaces.

Hope this inspires you to make some cute Minion slippers.

Thanks for looking.


Timeless Friendship

Dear Friends
Happy belated New Year!

It has been a long time since I posted anything on my blog.
I really miss the creative process.
Hopefully this year I will be more productive and
share more than just paper crafts with you.

Without further ado, here's my 1st card for 2016.
I used Maja Design January Mood Board and a sketch from
Creative Inspirations as a guide for my design.
Love this color palette, so soft and romantic!


The image is Dear Alice from Gorjuss Girl rubber stamp.
As usual, I water colored the image with Distress Ink pads.
I added white frantage in the background and dusted some glitters on the flowers.

Dies ~ Go Kreate, Magnolia, Marianne, Memory Box, Spellbinders, Tim Holtz
Designer Paper ~ Maja Design Vintage Summer and It's Christmas Time Collection.
Embellishments ~ Lace, ribbons, s/a pearls from The Ribbon Girls

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you all a happy day!
