Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder

First of all I want to thank all of you who left such kind and encouraging remarks and tips, on my previous post, about my paintings. As a baby crafter of only 1 year, I have so much to learn about card making, painting... and I am so lucky to belong to such a supportive … Continue reading Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder

Just one little Fri-die

I have this pile of gatefold cards I bought a year ago at a craft fair, with a fantastic idea of what to do with them, but obviously once I got home, I couldn't remember why I bought them! To make matters worse, they are shiny card stock, so not possible to do any blending or … Continue reading Just one little Fri-die

Hot Pink Marbling

Yes... another post on marbling, and its not going to be the last, so bear with me! What can I say, I LOVE the look of marbling. I love that you can use it as a background to create a beautiful scene like my previous post here, or as a flower pattern in a die cut … Continue reading Hot Pink Marbling

Nail Polish Art

I love trying new techniques, which is one of the reason I enjoy making cards so much as there are so many techniques to put ink on paper, who knew! This card was made using nail polish of all things. I first saw it over at Winnie & Walter's The Gossip Column with the amazing Taheerah … Continue reading Nail Polish Art

I, like, totally love you

Born to a Singaporean mother (me) and Spanish dad (my dear patient hubby), raised in France and now living in Germany, she somehow managed to speak and behave like an American teenager! Like what the...!!! She does attend an International school here, but her … Continue reading I, like, totally love you

Valentine’s Day is for everyone

I just finished a new design for my Valentine's Day shadow cards collection, and as I was creating this card, it brought back memories of the time I was in high school. It was an all girls school and we used to secretly give Valentines Day cards to girls we admired! It was always nice to receive … Continue reading Valentine’s Day is for everyone

Watercolour Thanks

This Card was made at 2am, during the Christmas holidays. I was browsing on my phone before I went to sleep...when the urge to play with a new technique hit me! So I got right up and made this card! I was inspired by a few posts I was reading, especially the latest CAS Mix … Continue reading Watercolour Thanks

Shiny Holly

Here in Germany, people are already starting to make hundreds of Christmas cookies so that they will be ready for the start of Advent, which is the first of the four Sundays before Christmas, so 27th November this year. I will try to make cookies this year too, but gluten free ones! So anyone who … Continue reading Shiny Holly

Give Thanks

This year, a good friend of ours has invited us to their Thanksgiving dinner, and we feel very privileged to be allowed to share this important celebration with them. Not being American, I looked up the history of Thanksgiving. I always thought Thanksgiving was a celebration of immigration success (the first immigrants giving thanks to … Continue reading Give Thanks
