Less is More








Trying something completely different here. Totally and absolutely out of my comfort zone, but here it is-as simple as it can get.

I started by combining 3 challenges in one.
CASology are  trying the chocolate flavor, Less is more are focusing on Mostly Words and Colour Q as always offered the delicious colour recipe.



And That' s the final design. Of course I'm trying not to add a button, twine, ribbon and at least one enamel dot. So far-I haven't. But I wouldn't be surprised if I wake up in the middle of the night and do it :)

Colour challenge

Today I wanted to play with colours. The girls over at the As You See It  blog have a really cool Challenge. 
I find inspiration in...COLORS!!!!It'as amazing how much colours affect my mood. So lot's of colours here :) 


I grabbed the color palette over at the Colour me! Challenge blog



Colour me Playful :)

 I did! Lots of things going on-I have flowers, and buttons and twine, and let's not forget the pearl stickers (or as my boyfriend  calls them- lentils). I went all crazy, but Boy I had fun with it!

I hope you enjoy it!

Blog Hop challenge









It's time for another Blog hop Challenge over at the Papertrey Ink Blog. Beautiful picture, giving so much to the the creative imagination. I made it quick and simple ( that's usually a struggle for me so I'm trying really hard not to add tons of things to a project). The layout got inspired by the sketch from this weeks's Cas(e) this sketch! challenge. 




So combining this color recipe and this simple but challenging sketch resulted in the above  card :)

As You See It challenge




No matter how you see it, it's fall already. Of course the temperature in California wouldn't agree with that statement. 
The Ladies over at As you See It have another great challenge for us. My take on it- ta-daaaaaaaa




Pretty cool sketch! Of course i twisted it a little bit ( oh, rebel me) and combined it with another challenge (Case Study).
It's all about the fall. I hope you liked it :)

Labor day challenge

Happy labor day to all  :)
Since its a LABOR day and I have to go to work,  I felt like I have to celebrate a little somehow.  So here it is- a thank you card to express my gratitude that I have a job so I can support my crazy obsession with paper,  stamps,  ribbons and buttons (especially buttons)


I  started with the amazing inspiration from As you see it. They added a twist- a 10 min creation.  OK,  I'm game :) but really, it took me 13 and it's only because I spent too much time removing the washi tape of my fingers and trying to glue it to where it belong, the card that is. I am probably the most glue-challenged person :( Also I grabbed the sketch idea over at The retro Sketch and you already saw the final result
