"Precious" A layout for a friend!

Hello dear friends and followers!!!

I haven't posted anything for a while now but I've been BUSY!!!
I made 4 layouts in the last 3 days!!! I will be sharing them with you during the week!

The first one is a layout I made for a friend and that's why the face of the baby is blur!

I used the sketch #57 from "Sketchabillities"

I used a Crafter's workshop stencil for the background and misted with "Key lime pie" !
The tag comes out and the parents can write something for their precious baby!

I had the chance to use my new Sew Easy scallop piercer which I just LOOOOVED!!!

I am also entering the challenge at My Creative Scrapbook forum,
where you have to do stitching on your layout!

So...until tomorrow...have a nice day!!!

"Φως μου" Cherry Nest!!!

Hello my friends!

Today's post is about a layout I made using the lovely "Cherry Nest products"!!! You can more projects in their blog--->HERE... So...I will continue in Greek...

Σε αυτή τη φώτο είναι η Νεφέλη μου σε μια εκδρομή που είχαμε πάει στην Αίγινα! Αυτό το χαρτί ταίριαξε τέλεια με την φωτο γιατί είναι πολύ φωτεινή και το χαρτί έχει τις ακτίνες του ήλιου! Ετσι προέκυψε και ο τίτλος!!!
Χρησιμοποίησα για τον τίτλο την Αλφάβητο μαυρο/κρεμ bingo vintage, τα vintage γράμματα , απο τα σχέδια για τύπωμα το αγάπη μπίνγκο vintage ,το χαρτί πρωϊνό φτερούγισμα (δεν ειναι τελειο???), το ροζ tab (ετικέτα) και ένα μικρό κομμάτι απο το pied de poule τυπωμένο πάνω σε φουξια χαρτί!!! 

Το κουμπί με το κοριτσάκι είναι Purple Pumpkin!

Have a nice day everyone!!!

"Together" -- Bird is the word! I have mixed feelings...I wanted to share some happy news about my feature at "The color Room" but my mood is so bad because a good friend of mine had a great loss and it had a big impact on me...I can't understand why bad things happen to such nice people...well...HE knows better I guess... moves on...and time heals...

There is a new challenge word for you at "Bird Is The Word"


 Today is a special word release day because.........................our new design team will be revealing their very first Bird is the Word projects!! 
So head on over to get some inspiration by the really talented fellow DT members!!!

Here is my take...It's a bit busy but I wanted to make a fun-happy-bright-childish layout about the playground and the slide they love so much!

I want to thank Katerina again (lol) for letting me use her sewing machine! You can tell it's my 1st attempt to use a machine..hahaha the stitching around the page is a bit unorthodox but I still like it because it is fun, like the rest of the layout!

And again I used a bit of gesso,mists and acrylic paints....

and also my favorite  "sew easy" to hand stitch a little bit!

The papers are Echo Park "playground" and you can find them at "Enjoy Scrapping"! Perfect line for playground fun days!!!

Just a little reminder about our rules....we have very few.........Create a project using the word TOGETHER in your layout or journaling.  Post this layout on your blog and link it up on the BITW blog.  Also, please remember to give BITW credit when you post your image.You could win a whole kit by "Tidbitz in time"!!!

My little TOOT!!!!
And last but not least.............I was featured at "The Color Room"!!! I have stopped mentioning my features and publications, although I update my resume often, but this is huge as the gallery is FULL of stunning creations! I am SO honored! Thanks for choosing my layout!


p.s I am entering this layout to "Creative Scrappers" since I used sketch #176.

Have a nice day and God Bless.....

"Me & You" My Creative Scrapbook Contest!

Hello my friends!

As I said in my last post, I was at a crop last Saturday and I started creating this layout which is based on a layout by Kim Keane for "My Creative Scrapbook" Big sketch contest through their challenge blog:

This is my take of the sketch, using mostly their August main kit!

I had really fun making this layout! I used masks and mists, gesso, acrylic paints, stickles, heat embossing, fussy cutting....

The title is Imaginarium Designs which I painted red, distressed with black ink and covered with stickles!

I did some fussy cutting as well (actually my friend Katerina cut the flower at the, she helped me out because scrapping time at crops is limited! We mostly talk and laugh instead of scrapping!!Thanks Katerina!

Here, I used a paper doily as a mask and sprayed some glimmer mist!
The stamp is heat embossed with distress powder!
I also put some stickle dots around my doily to make it stand out!

I have used many pop dots to give a 3D effect!!!

I hope you like the outcome!
It is one of my favorite layouts since I LOVE this photo of my little girls!!!
Wish me luck!!!

Thanks for looking!!!
Have a nice day!!!

"Having fun" - Scrap for Help and a GDT spot!!! WOOHOO!

Hello friends!!!

First of all I would like to say that I went to a crop on Saturday at a friend's house and I had LOTS of fun, scrapping,eating GOOD food and laughing with spicy jokes..hehe

It is time for a new challenge over at "Scrap for Help"! You have to scrap about children and use a packaging piece on your layout! Easy least for me because I like using scrapbooking packaging and of course I always scrap about my children!!!

In this layout I used a Prima packsging which is black with white dots, right behind the photos!
Head on over to SFH blog to get inspired by the wonderful projects the other DT girls have made! You should participate in order to win some yummy stuff like "Imaginarium Designs" chipboard which I LOVE and I have used in this layout!

 The title is ID chipboard!
 In the picture below I used ID girl figure and the black button!

This lovely butterfly is also ID...

If that layout seems familiar to you, then I should tell you that I decided to continue the story of my last layout (see previous post) and make it a double!!!

So this is actually my first double layout, although it wasn't planned from the beginning..LOL

So...what do you think? I did a lot of hand stitching and I loved all the journaling and of course my new addiction to handmade embellies!!!
Is this style called eclectic? I am so confused with all these styles out there...What would YOU call this layout's style???

And with that said (about my new addiction)....

The wonderfull and sweet ladies from Purple Pumpkin Sandra and Samantha,  have asked me to guest design for them for a whole month! WOOHOO! Their most popular items, are their fabric covered buttons, and handmade flowers! They really focus on creating unique handmade embellishments for scrapbooking!
Aren't they SOOOO YUMMY??????????
You will be seeing some of these beautiful embellishments in the upcoming months!
Thank you ladies for that great honor and mostly for the opportunity to work with such beautiful stuff!!!

I hope you enjoyed this post!
Have a nice day!!!
