Wall Deco

This month's Papercraft Essentials free gift is a cute set of stamps and papers from Helz Cuppleditch's Riverbank Revels. I thought these were perfect for Easter makes using the little duck, but as always I ended up making something else than what I had in mind. Here is a little gift for my friend Diane:

The hearts have a hand stitched border and the ducks are mounted on foam pads. They are glued onto hearts die cut from cardstock to add a little extra weight. I liked the sentiment, something different, and it comes from a Kaisercraft stamp set which I never really used.

Last month, I worked on a series of cards with Kaisercraft products for Papercraft Essentials Issue 119. I loved the papers and discovered Merly Impressions which specialise in Kaisercraft products. So here is my other wall deco using the new papers. Lots of stitching, even on the small hearts:



Could make a lot more of these for Easter or Christmas. Next time, I'll post pictures of some pretty and unusual gift boxes.

Happy crafting!



Home sweet home

Back from our adventures in the Middle East and I thought why not post a picture that sums up our holiday:


Lots of goats everywhere in Oman! I love animals and we had to photograph every single one of them we encountered, so there will be a lot of goat pictures to remind us of our holiday. Oman is such a beautiful place and this picture was taken at the "Grand Canyon" Jebel Shams. The Omani people were very relaxed. Lots to see and to discover. We are already talking of going back next year. Also spent three days in Dubai, re-visited our favourite sights and places and took it easy. Arriving in Muscat, we were told that our luggage had not made it... despite checking in three hours before the flight... and we didn't get it back until we went to the airport the next day. Let me tell you, you only feel half human with what little you've got in your checked luggage!

Papercraft Essentials Issue 118 is out with my feature on iris folding. I'm so happy! Two of my designs were recently picked by Cardmaking & Papercraft and I got sent a crafty prize:


It didn't take long before our dining table was covered with cardmaking material and I'm now making something different than cards or boxes which I will post here next week. It's a suprise!

So come back soon to check out my cute little projects.
