Every Dream Mini Album

Dzisiaj chciałabym pokazać mini album, który przygotowałam z kolekcji The Peony Avenue Studio75.
Do ozdobienia albumu wykorzystałam duże arkusze papieru z tej kolekcji.

Today I would like to share a mini album which I decorated with papers from The Peony Avenue collection by Studio75.
I used 12x12'' papers from this collection.










Album przygotowałam na bazie, którą zrobiłam sama wg tutorialu Hidden Hinge Kathy Ortha. Dziękuję.

I created an album base following Kathy Ortha's Hidden Hinge tutorial. Thank you.



Album powstał dzięki mojej koleżace Gosi. Wyznaczyłyśmy sobie z Gosią wyzwanie na przygotowanie albumu. Gosi album można obejrzeć o tu - zapraszam.

This mini album was created thanks to my friend Gosia. We spoken the other day about making min album (we both like to make them) and decided to give yourself a challenge to create one. You can see Gosia's album here.

Serdecznie pozdrawiam!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happily Ever After


Today I would like to share one more beautifully shaped card. I used Regal Allure S6-078 die for my card. I love this die! The card is about 4.70x6.90'' (11.9x17.5cm).

Kolejna kartka w cudnym kształcie. Tym razem z okazji ślubu. Kartkę wycięłam wykrojnikiem Regal Allure S6-078. Kartka jest wielkości 11.9x17.5cm (4.70x6.90'').


Beautiful accent which is under flowers comes from the same die set Regal Allure.
Tiny tag comes from Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die set SDS-053.

Śliczny dodatek, który jest pod kwiatkami jest z tego samego zestawu wykrojników Regal Allure.
Tag jest z zestawu Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die SDS-053 set.


To create flowers, which are on my card I used:
Cinch and Go Flowers One (white rose) and followed this tutorial - click.
Cinch and Go Flowers Two S4-792 (two daisies) I prepared petals like in this tutorial and for a center I added very tiny flower.
Flower die from Isadora Trinkets die set S4-791 (the ones with stamens) I made them almost like this ones except I used only three die cut elements for one flower.

Do przygotowania kwiatków na mojej kartce użyłam:
Cinch and Go Flowers One (biała róża) wg tego tutorialu.
Cinch and Go Flowers Two S4-792 (dwie stokrotki) wg tego tutorialu przygotowałam płatki a w środek dodałam mini kwiatek.
Wykrojnik kwiatek z zestawu Isadora Trinkets S4-791 (kwiatki z pręcikami) przygotowałam je tak jak te kwiatki tylko, że użyłam tylko te trzy wycięte kwaty.

The Amazing Paper Grace Thinking Outside of the Box Blog Hop


We're so excited!  For months we've been bringing you creative ways to use your dies to make stunning cards.  Not today!! Today, we're showing you how to make anything but a card.  Becca issued the challenge that the creative team could pick any die and not use it in the way in was originally intended. What that means for you is everything we are showing today is pretty much outside of the box.  Dies are meant for this kind of inspiration and as you hop around, you'll be amazed at some gorgeous creations that will have your head shaking.  Yes there are prizes, but but have your gift list sitting by so that you can pick out the next gifts you might be making for someone special.

I'll tell you a little bit about my creation and will share a link list below so that you can see the creations of each person on the Creative Team as well as information on how three lucky people can win Amazing Paper Grace Dies.




Here is a picture showing the led tealight turned on inside the box.


To create a lantern I used a Vintage Insert from Filigree Booklet die set S5-289. To decorate the lid I used a Inner Border and Looped Square dies from Braided Grace Square S4-733 die set and flowers which I made using Cinch and Go Flowers One S6-050 die. To create my note card I used the same dies.

To create a lantern:
1. I cut two pieces of card stock measuring 6-3/4 by 4-3/4'' (I used Kraft-Core card stock).
2. I scored both at 3-1/4'' and 6-1/2'' (at the longer side) and then at 4-1/4'' (at the shorter side).


3. I centered and secured with a masking tape a Vintage Insert die from Filigree Booklet die set and die cut and embossed it four times.



4. To shade the 'windows' in my lantern I cut four pieces of vellum (I used tracing paper 90gsm). Each pieces measure approx 3-3/8 by 4-3/8''. I glued it down using a strong double sided tape.


5. Then I glued a lantern together using wet glue.



6. I added a piece at the bottom of the lantern which measures 3-1/4 by 3-1/4''. I rounded each corner with 3/8'' corner rounder as that way it fits easier inside (it is not necessary to round the corners). I also added the same piece at the bottom from the outside to cover flaps.



7. To create a lid for a lantern I took a piece of card stock which measures 4-3/8 by 4-3/8'' and scored on each side at 1/2 '' and 3-7/8 ''. I also die cut and embossed two decorative elements from Braided Grace Square die set. I used a Inner Border and Looped Square.


8. Before gluing a lid together I die cut a square inside. I drew two perpendicular lines with a pencils to help me to position the die in a middle. I did it for a lid and for the Inner Border from Braided Grace Square die set. The size of the square die is 1-1/2'' sq.



9. I added a Looped Square on a top of a Inner Border using wet glue and then using 3D foam tape I placed it on a lid having in mind to center two squares.


I made the other lantern in green as I was thinking that it will look lovely as a Christmas lantern too. I will share my finished Christmas lantern a bit later on.
