My Music - Prima Marketing


Music has a great power, don't you think? It lifts us up when we feel down, comforts in sorrow and makes you dance when you are happy. This layout is about my music and it was done for CHA. I think I didn't see this one on display in the CHA photos, though. But it was there somewhere. I've used the Rose Quartz collection together with Resists Pen in this layout. There's also some planner items there.


The Resist Pen is used in two ways – first creating a resist and then using it as the base for the foil to stick. You can find more info about the Resist Pen in either this post (link) or this post (link). The first one is the actual reveal post and the second one has a lot of cool projects in it.

The swirls behind the photo are done using the resist effect – drawing loose circles by free hand, letting the medium dry and then adding watercolors on top. After the page was completely dry, I removed the Resist and finished the page. 

The foiled version is a part of the title. As the last detail I wrote "my" with the Resist pen to my title and also added some drops here and there. These shapes I foiled to give the page some metal(lic) shine.

Wishing you a great week! Thank you for your visit again - it means a lot to me!

Y O U - Prima Marketing


Sweet Saturday everyone! As I still have not shared quite a few projects which I made for CHA, I thought to post a few of them in the course of next few days. I'm starting with this minialbum cover I decorated using Memory Hardware and Rose Quartz


I really like the soft pink shade that the collection has but what I love the most about the collection is the feather patterned paper. So gorgeous! And can be used so many ways! I made some ATCs and also a romantic layout where I used the feathers as embellishments.

In the cover I used on top of the mentioned also a metal butterfly from Finnabair collection and an old brush - actually from her collection, too. I just love when a brush gets this used look, with paint and gesso stains. To me that means that the brush is loved - it's used to make something! 

Hopefully you are having a wonderful weekend! Wishing you a lot of creative time!

Street Art - A Flair for Buttons


Hello there! It's great that it's Friday! Yay! This layout is something I did for A Flair for Buttons and was shared in the company blog earlier this month. I went with a bit colorful this time as the photo illustrates something really colorful as well.

Last summer me and my family visited Tallinn and came across the old culture center there. The building struck us by a surprise. It was built during the Soviet times and illustrates the architecture of that era perfectly. As it's an unkind reminder of the bad times, the building has been neglected and is now turning in to gravel. What it nowadays holds is a huge amount of street art and graffiti. It was such a surprising place!

As often, I picked the colors for the page from my photo and I wanted the flair buttons to reflect the colors as well. So I chose three different ones for the page, flairs that had the right atmosphere for the story and the photo. The "hello adventure" one is from the Hello Life set and goes well with the experience. We just bumped into the building and it was really an adventure to see it. The edgy chevron is from the Linen Chevron set and had the right kind of feel to it for the page. And look at that cool little paper airplane! I just had to get into the mix! The one I used is from the Paper Airplanes 2 set. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely start to the weekend!

Love tags - Prima Marketing


Hi there peeps! How are you on this Thursday? Here's a little something to you - pink, sweet and glittery! They are shared at Prima's blog (link) already along with some fabulous tags!


I started these tags as mirrored – adding a half of 6x6 paper to the right side to the other one and to the left side of the other. Also the stenciled pattern is flipped in the two, but when it got to the embellishing, I treated the two differently. What they do have in common, are the materials – some luscious blooms, sweet chippies and some dazzling sequins.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Happy Valentine's Day


Sweet Valentine's Day! 

The inspiration behind this canvas was something I got from a follower of my blog. She was awesome and sent me a parcel full of old jewelry, broken watches and other lovely items. Among those was this heart shaped frame, delicately packed between layers of tissue paper.

I immediately saw that as the center piece of a canvas and thought it be perfect for the Valentine’s theme. Love is the answer, open your heart.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Love shines through - GDT Elizabeth Craft Designs


How has your week started? Good, I hope! Today I'm sharing my second project for Elizabeth Craft Designs in the guest post that went live some days ago. In the post (link) I shared a card with step by step instructions and also this layout using the same idea and products as the card.


I used the same steps as in the card, like I said, but there's one difference. Well, the size is different, but I also added the adhesive differently. While in the card I made very sure that the adhesive covered the whole heart design, here I played with smaller pieces of adhesive and created a block style look to the background. The bigger size also allowed me more space to play with the mediums and create the white on white stenciled pattern.

Thank you for your visit today! Have a great Monday!

Love Poppies - GDT Elizabeth Craft Designs


Sweet Sunday! Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I'm sharing a couple of love filled projects over the next few days. I'm starting with two projects I created as a guest for Elizabeth Craft Designs. You can see the original post, containing the two crafts in here (link) in the company blog.

The poppies I used in my card are part of the new release. When I saw them, I immediately fell in love with the lace-like look they had! So delicate! And I need to mention, that poppies are one of my favorite flowers as well. So when I got asked to continue guesting in the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, I was so happy to be able to work with this die. I used also a couple of other quite new dies in my creation, the heart background and the oval behind the bloom. But if you go to the original post (link), you'll be able to see step by step instructions for the card.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday and great start to the new week! May it be filled with love!
