Birthday book



I saw this tutorial on one of my favourite blogs so far, An ounce of creativity/ Un soupçon de créativité, and I loved it!!

And here is my very own version of this birthday book, I like it a lot!! I love the happy colours of the papers!




I used Jillibean Soup papers for the cover, the stickers and twine are also from Jillibean Soup, the flowers are from Artemio, a belgian company, and the inside pages are My Mind's Eye papers.

And the song I was listening to is from an English singer, Ben Howard. I absolutely love this song called The Wolves!

Pine Cone Ornament - Burlap & Buttercups #2

December weekly challenge #2 at Burlap & Buttercups is to make an ornament or holiday home decor project using a tutorial from the web.

Here is my version of it (finished last week, just in time to hang it, at least, a few days before Christmas!!):




The paper is from My Mind's Eye,the twine is from Jillibean Soup and the flower from Petaloo.
I have been meaning to use this pine cone ornament tutorial for three years (!!) but I always postponed it so when I saw this challenge,I immediately thought this was the perfect chance!!! So thank you Burlap & Buttercups ;)

I thought maybe adding a little music to this blog would be a good idea, so here is the song I was listening to while making this ornament:

Christmas Lights - Coldplay (December 2010)

Christmas Card - Burlap and Buttercups challenge

I didn't have time to post this card before Christmas with all the holiday hustle and bustle!!
I made it for the 1st weekly challenge over at Burlap & Buttercups blog!!

The card had to be made with non-traditional christmas colours, that means no red or green.
I used stitching and border punch as my techniques.



I folded the tree just like I did on the other Christmas card I posted because I just love the way it looks!!!
I had a lot of fun making this card and loved the challenge!!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas day!!
