As a small Christmas gift I made this cute sleigh with some chocolates to put under the tree. The instruction for this wonderful idea is from Stempeleinmaleins. The image used is from Lili of the Valley.

After a long time where I did not feel like making cards I finally picked it up again. Today I started with the layout from Corrie for the Creaine October Challenge. But after I came to the end-result it does not show the layout as much as it should to enter the challenge. However I did get a desperately needed Christmas card out of it.

The border die I used is from Joy!Crafts, the part circle is from Marianne design and the penguin is from Cottage cutz.


A gorgeous new pattern from Ann's Paper Art for the Hobbyjournaal. Since I really need to make Christmas cards, this pattern is used for one.

The die I used is from Nellie Snellen, the stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

APA digi

This time a card from me with a very first Ann's Paper Art digi stamp! Next to the fabulous stitching patterns there are now gorgeous digi stamps available from Ann's Paper Art.

In the new download store you will find some patterns and digi's that will not be sent via the post but can be downloaded immediately. The shop is not full yet, but new products will be added soon. There will be digi's in black and white and combination sets of stitching patterns and colored digi's.

Considering the World cup that is currently going on in Brasil I thought this digi would make a great card for one of the guys. A great addition, the football digi stamp I used here can be downloaded free of charge at the moment! So both the stitching pattern and the digi are from Ann's Paper Art.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Fadengrafik - 64. Challenge - Fußball oder Sportkarte
- Through the CraftRoom door - TTCRD challenge June 24-30

The next Hobbyjournaal (number 112) will have a contribution from Ann's Paper Art and I was so lucky to get it already. Here is the card I made with it.

The die I used is from Marianne design.

To celebrate the contribution in the HJ the Ann's Paper Art webshop offers a free Hobbyjournaal with every order!

APA stitching cards

Finally a new card from me. The stitching was done quite some time ago, but as usual the stitched card disappeared in a draw...
I used the beautiful die from Marianne Design as a focal point, the stamp and small die are a set from Whimsy, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stitching pattern is a2057 from Ann's Paper Art.

Showing this card makes me realize that I did not show you some of the other stitched cards I made lately.

This card I made with the normal circle spellbinders (the old ones I started with) and pattern a0283 from Ann's Paper Art.

Again the Marianne Design die, this time in combination with pattern a0263 from Ann's Paper Art

And the last one for today is made with a spellbinder borderability and pattern a0736 from Ann's Paper Art.


Last time I visited the Stampinback store I saw this stencil and immediately thought I needed to get that one. Now I finally had a change to make a card with it. I used brown stazon to stamp the birds and the text. For the coloring and the stencil I used distress ink. The birds and text stamps are also from Stampinback.
