MME Lost & Found 2 Blush

Hello, crafters! Today I'll show you what I've created using the new Lost & Found 2 Blush Collection by My Mind's Eye. I was really excited when I saw my papers from Paperlane and had to finally admit to myself that even though I've been trying so hard to avoid pink all my life, I really love that colour! And Blush is all about pinks and reds and occasional, but very charming green and brown. The collection is innocent and pastel and in the same time bold and bright. My paper crafter's heart could not but love it. It's truly versatile and can be used for so many different occasions. You can go girly (as in my Always friends layout), plush and shiny (Find joy every day), vintage (Thank you card) or romantic (Butterflies card).

I really enjoyed creating the layouts and cards and hope you'll like them and give the collection a try. For the card makers, there is the 6x6 pad which carries the same designs, just in smaller size, perfect for card making! The collection also features many beautiful embellishments (super cute buttons and brads) and even stamps! For those of you who just like me like Blush, pinks and greens and stamps, we have a fun class coming real soon at Paperlane!

Boo! Halloween is just around the corner. Are you ready for the celebrations? Here is a fun and easy treat bag (already filled with treats by the way :)) I used a kraft sandwich bag, Hero Arts Halloween stamps set, patterned paper and Ranger Crackle Accents for more spookiness :) I coloured the background with Wild Honey Distress Stains. It looks as if I have used two inks, but it's really just one and that's one of the many unique things you can do with these inks. Fun, huh? Speaking of Distress Stains, we'll be using them at my new class at Paperlane this Saturday. Check it out at

Well, and I cheated with the paper. I used a paper from the new My Mind's Eye Blush collection (black and white) and coloured it with an orange Copic marker (YR04) to give her the Halloween look. A fun trick ;) I'll show you the original paper in my next post which will be part of Paperlane's MME design team inspiration. Till then and thank you for stopping by!

Здравейте! Днес реших да покажа една бърза торбичка за лакомства. Тази е за Хелоуин, но същата идея може да се използва и за коледна торбичка. Това е всъщност пликче за сандвичи украсено с печати и мастила. Оцветих фона с едно от новите мастила на Тим Холц Distress Stains (Wild Honey), а за хартията използвах малка хитринка понеже нямах нищо подходящо - оцветих белите рейета с оранжев копик маркер :) Ще покажа оригиналната хартия в следващата си публикация. До тогава и благодаря, че се отбихте!

Happy World Card Making Day and A Special Guest!

Hello everyone and a very happy World Card Making Day! Be happy and creative and may the mojo always be with you :))

Честит празник на всички! Нека музата и настроението за правене на картички никога не ви напускат!

Today I decided to feature a very special guest here on my blog - my daughter Raya and her creations! She's doing amazingly well for a three-year old, isn't she? :))

На днешния празник имам един много специален гост, който винаги е неразделна част от творческия ми процес - дъщеря ми Рая и нейните творения. Справя се чудесно за тригодишна, нали? :))

Thanks for stopping by and have a great one!

Благодаря, че се отбихте и хубав ден!
