I love to scrap!

Nice to find you again! Finally I found time to finish my second scrapbooking layout which is also my participation to the Get Creative challenge of this month. In this try I experiment myself by trying some new technics. It was a color challenge so we were limited in the use of three colors, grey, blue and white. 

So, take a look on what i made...


I distressed the border of the canson paper, I made a mask on my own to give this print on the left bottom of the layout and I used sponge to make the texture of the sky on the right bottom. The cloud, balloon and owl details are from fimo and I made them on my own. 

I hope you like it! I am looking forward for your comments! Thanks for watching! :)

Sewing Fun!!

Hello to all!! I am happy to find you again because I want to share with you a very creative way to have fun!!  On Saturday was a great day, so I took a walk with my boyfriend in the center of Athens and I bought so many things!! Fabrics, different colors of felt, zips, buttons, ribbons....and many more things that you will see through my future creations!!

I got inspired from a tutorial that I found at http://www.noodle-head.com/ and I didn't lose time to give my first try to sewing! I follow the tutorial steps for the basic pattern of the purse but the truth is that I made some changes in it's organisation. Because I have many cards I prefer having them in a different case so I can find them easier.Next step, was that I made a small pocket for the changes and finally I put my personal sign on the outside decoration. I made a flower from different fabrics in a form of a budge, so I can use it again also in other creations! ;)

Take a look on what I made! :)


And this is the card holder, small enough to fit on the purse!


And this is it's inside...


This was the first time that I try sewing and I am really happy because it's easy enough to create things which you can use on your everyday life! You can try it for yourself making your own alterations! For the only thing that I should warn you is the difficulty on sewing the zip, but you can overpass this by using a magnetic clip or velcro!

That's all for today! I hope you like it!!Thanks for watching! :)
