This is what it looks like at the moment, one big fat cast:

I guess it will take me some time before I can craft again :(

Diary for my "Project Life"

Since I seem to forget rather quick, I decided I needed a diary for my "Project Life". 
It is small enough for my purse ;)

The die and the stamp are Tim Holtz, the paper Graphic45.

You all have a  good weekend now!

Our last sketch for the Sketch-A-Thon!

So sad it's over, but I'm looking forward to our 7th anniversary in 2013 :)

This is my creation for today's sketch. I had a bit of a hard time, but managed to use the "side bar" for some words I didn't want to forget about my time in Idaho.

The question is for the "Haircut or the glasses!

For some modeling I had to go from shoulder length to this futuristic style, not that I liked it :(

This is day #10 already .....

I stuck to my paper, the BoBunny Timepiece, used the Tim Holtz Tattered banners and the SU die for the butterflies. This Sketch-A-Thon is so much fun this year!

You all have a  good weekend now!

Another BOM page ....

I can't believe we are already half through the Sketch-A-Thon at MSW.

Today is another "Layout-Day" so I keep working on the BOM.

I used currogated cardboard from a packaging, which I dry brushed with an off-white acrylic paint, and again the BoBunny design paper. 
I cut the buttons from stamped on sticky canvas. the borders are the Tim Holtz banner die (I LOVE this die!)

Day #7 at MSW

Today I created a male birthday card using BasicGrey paper *Oxford*, some nail brads and my zipper punch. 

Just for fun I added some butterflies, they're also "manly", aren't they?

Thanks Lucy for yet another wonderful sketch!

I enter this card into the challenge at CCCB and day#5 at MSW Sketch-A-Thon.

I used BasicGrey "Out of print" paper, the envelope is handmade, the punch EK Success "Bubbles".

Both sentiments are Stampin' Up stamps.

Stampers' Sampler

I'm quite tickled that I was published again in the latest issue of the magazine Stampers' Sampler.

I must admit at first I had a hard time with this template, but I managed and it was welcome to the editor :)

You all have a good weekend!

Day #3 at the Sketch-A-Thon

Another page for my BOM.

Lucy provided another beautiful sketch. I decided to hide the journaling underneath the picture. I just cut a hinge with a BossKut die and here we go :)

I use the BoBunny paper "Timepiece", I love the colours!

Since I didn't find a rubber duck in my stash, I used a butterfly ... *grin*
Come on over and join us at MSW, this is so much fun, 
the sketches are fabulous and the prizes ..... yummy!

Day #1 at the Sketch-A-Thon

I work with the sketches depending on my time and my mojo, so this is day #1 at the My Sketch World Sketch-A-Thon.

We alternate cards and layouts, so I decided to start a 6x6" mini book for the layout sketches. 

This is the first page of my BOM, I will create a cover when it's all finished.

This is a close up of my glassine paper flower:

Some very sturdy book marks!

I randomly applied Alcohol ink in different colours on a metal panel. I stamped the leaves with StaZon on a tissue and brushed it down on the panel with Multi Medium Matte. Love the wrinkles, gives it a lot of texture!

After sanding down the edges I adhered it to cardstock, and cut the panel into 2-1/4 x 4” rectangles. 

I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper, put on some brad washers and tied a suede ribbon through the punched hole.
