Life Is The Flower - Inspiration for 'I Am Roses'

Hello everyone!

One more post from me today and this time for the I Am Roses DT.
I created a card, using the Nature Sketchbook papers from 'Graphic 45' and the 'I Am Roses' flowers:

The links to the flowers can be found below:

Don't forget about the running 'Anything Goes March Challenge', which you can enter here.

Thanks for watching :)

Candy Shop Mini Album for 'Fabrika Decoru'

Hello dear people!

Today I would like to share my inspirational project for the "Fabrika Decoru" design team. I created a 6" x 6" mini album using the sweet (in all the meaning) paper collection called "Candy Shop".

I wanted to use as less die cuts as possible, and as more of the cut out elements from the collection itself, as well as the accompanying flair buttons and chipboards.

Oh, I tried not to use flowers at all, even on the cover:

The album is kept close with a ribbon and has 4 spreads inside:

The frames are intended for holding the 3.5 X 5" photos, and the smaller photo mats will fit the 3.5" X 2.5" pics.

The first spread:

The second spread:

The third spread:

And the last, fourth spread:

 I think that this album will perfectly fit for keeping memories of a birthday party or any other celebration which included lots of cakes and sweet things :)

There is a short video overview of the mini album for those who want to better see and understand how the pages work:

I hope you like and thanks for stopping by.

Photo Storage Box - "Beautiful As You Are"

Hello dear all!

Sharing a photo storage box, created with the paper from the set called "Beautiful As You Are" by an Israeli crafter and designer - Sivan Amedi, who owns an Internet store Meme ve Mari

You can purchase anything from the store and pay with your PayPal account, Sivan will take care of the worldwide shipping too. 

Here are some close-ups of the cover:

On the back of the box there is a flowery pocket, which holds a few tags:

The box has a rubber-band closure:

The accordion pockets inside the box allow you to either store there a lot of photos, or a few of them, mounted to the photo mats:

There will be a tutorial for creating a box, although in the tutorial I will use the "Midnight Masquerade" paper by Graphic 45. If you like this post, be sure to subscribe to my blog and get the update once the tutorial is ready.

Prima 'Rose Quartz' and My Inspiration For 'I Am Roses'

Hello dear all!

Today starts a new, March Challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog, and we also announce the winners of the fantastic prizes from the previous challenge. If you took part and would like to see whether you were among the winners, please proceed here.

Back to the March Challenge and my inspiration - I created a photo folio with a ton of interesting pockets and flaps, using the new collection from Prima - 'Rose Quartz'. The flowers which I used for finishing off the project are all from I Am Roses and here are the links for you to check out:

For creating the folio, I followed a great free tutorial by Mariko Nakagawa. The tutorial consists of 4 parts:

Here are the close-up shots of the cover:

And here you can have a look at some of the numerous flaps, pockets and pages of the folio:

I was so pressed for time, that I wasn't able to finish making a video overview of this folio by the time this post was supposed to go live, so I will do it a few days later and post the video on my channel, as well the link to it here, in the post.

I hope you like my result :)
