Christmas tag and handmade gifts

Merry Christmas to everyone! :-) I hope you had a nice, relaxing time with your family and friends :-) This time I spent my Christmas in Finland, so that was a bit uncasual. Nevertheless, here's a set of tags I have prepared to decorate the gift bags for my boyfriend's family.

Zycze wszystkim Wesolych Swiat! Mam nadzieje, ze spedziliscie mile, spokojne Swieta w gronie swojej rodziny i przyjaciol :-) Tym razem spedzilam Swieta w Finlandii, co bylo dosyc nietypowe. Tak czy siak, zalaczam tu zestaw tagow, ktore przygotowalam na dekoracje torebek z prezentami dla rodziny mojego chlopaka.

I'm sending the tag for the challenges of Art-Piaskownica (tag lift of the picture below) and a challenge of Przyda Sie (something useful- December challenge).

Prace wysylam na wyzwanie Art-Piaskownicy (tag lift- Edycja Ki) oraz na wyzwanie Przyda Sie (wyzwanie grudniowe).

 This how the tags looked on the bags:
Tak wygladaly tagi powieszone na torebkach:
And here's what you could find inside the bag (all hand-made by me and my boyfirend):
A to co mozna bylo znalezc w srodku (wszystko recznie robione przeze mnie i mojego chlopaka):
-cognac mustard (musztarda z cognaciem)

Origami Christmas card

This Christmas season is definitely inspired by origami ;-) It's really a last chance to send the cards (especially abroad), so I'm working hard to get done as much as possible.

Tegoroczny sezon swiateczny jest zdecydowanie zainspirowany origami ;-) To ostatnia okazja by wyslac kartki (szczegolnie za granice), wiec pracuje tutaj jak mroweczka by zrobic ich jak najwiecej!

Orange wreath

Even though the Christmas is just behind the corner, outside it still looks like autumn. In order to keep the best part of it (mostly warm colours) I made another autumn wreath. Can you guess what's it made of?

Yep! Oranange and tangerine peels! I simply removed the peel rotating the fruit in order to get a neat spiral. Then I have shaped them and pirced them with a couple of cocktail sticks. After that I have dried them on the radioator for a day-or two, depending on the thickness of the peel.

How do you like it? :-) Comments are more than welcome!

Mimo, ze Swieta juz za rogiem, na dworze dalej wyglada na to, ze jest jesien. Postanowilam zachowac jej najlepsze elementy (glownie cieple kolory) i tak zrobilam kolejny jesienny wieniec.Zgadniesz z czego jest zrobiony? 
 
Tak! Ze skory pomaranczy i mandarynek! Po prostu obralam owoce, tak by uzyskac ladna spiralke. Po tym przeklolam je paroma wykalaczkami i pozwolilam im wyschnac na kaloryferze dzien lub dwa, zaleznie od grubosci skorki.

Jak Ci sie podobaja? :-) Komentarze mile widziane!

Autumn wreath

And once again- long time ;-)

Autumn is almost ending here, in Finland. Luckily this year I managed to grab a bunch of mapple leaves just before they dried too much. And then I just started a mass production of the mapple-leaf roses. Nice and quick tutorial you can see over HERE.

After that I started decorating the styroform ring with the twine in 2/3 of its length. Then I made some holes in the other part in order to sit the roses firmly in the ring. After that I have sprayed them quite heavily with some glimmer mist and heair spray. I quite like the effect :-)

I znow dawno sie nie widzielismy ;-)

Tu w Finlandii, jesien juz sie prawie konczy. W tym roku udalo mi sie zebrac jeszcze garsc lisci klonowych zanim wyschly juz zupelnie. Po tym rozpoczelam produkcje masowa klonowych rozyczek. Fajny i szybki tutorial znajdziecie TUTAJ.

Nastepnie zaczelam dekorowac styropianowe kolo sznurkiem na ok 2/3 jego dlugosci. Na reszcie dlugosci porobilam dziurki by umocowac w nich rozyczki. Po tym spryskalam je dosyc mocno mgielka i lakierem do wlosow. Podoba mi sie ten efekt :-)

Prace zglasza mna wyzwanie Diabelskiego Mlyna pt. "Jesienny lisc".
I sent this work for the challenge of Diabelski Mlyn named "Autumn leaf"

Shabby Easter eggs

Happy Easter!

Here's a quick post just before I hit the road to work. It's my window Easter decoration made from styrofoam egg covered with napkins. It's was supposed to be done with decoupage technique, but apparently I had pretty poor vernishes for that (I read about them after purchasing them and they had really bad opinions). Oh well, maybe I'll succeed next time ;-) Nevertheless, I guess the bow has saved the situation.

I'm sending this project for the challenge of Shabby Tea Room called "Easter Sweetness"

 And here hanging in the window:

Wedding planner

So here it is, the first step toward the wedding! ;-) I generally like planning and organizing events, so I thought it would good to collect all needed stuff in one notebook. I found the color scheme challenge (of Diabelski Mlyn) and beads challenge (of PWC) working perfectly together. I thought that if it was totally white, it'd get extremely dirty in the upcoming months/years.

No wiec tak, pierwszy krok w strone slubu! ;-) Ogolnie lubie planowac i organizowac przyjecia, wiec pomyslalam, ze dobrze by bylo pozbierac wszystko w jeden zeszyt. Swietnie do tego tematu podpasowalo mi wyzwanie kolorystyczne Diabelskiego Mlynu i wyzwanie koralikowe PWC. Pomyslalam, ze gdyby zeszyt byl calkowicie bialy, pobrudzilby sie strasznie przez nastepne miesiace/lata.

 The letters are called "Sweet Sunrise" (7 Dots Studio)
Literki z serii "Sweet Sunrise" (7 Dots Studio)

Steampunk bookmark

I visited today a scrapbooking store with a major focus on steampunk style and I ended up buying gear wheel stencils. I thought it would a good element for the manly-orientated gifts. And this is how I made a Valentine's bookmark for my engineer ;-)

Odwiedzilam dzisiaj sklep scrapbookowy, ktory specjalizowal sie w stylu steampunk (nie mam pojecia jak to jest po polsku...). No i kupilam zestaw szablonu z kolami zebatymi. Pomyslalam, ze to bedzie fajny element dla prac skierowany do facetow. I tak oto zrobilam walentynkowa zakladke dla mojego inzyniera ;-)
I let myself to add add a little female accent to it ;-)
Pozwolilam sobie dodac maly kobiecy elemencik ;-)
I'm sending my bookmark for PWC challenge - Valentine's gifts and Scrapki's challenge- "circles"
Wysylam zakladke na wyzwanie PWC- upominek walentynkowy i na Scrapki- "kola"

Flower-shaped pincushion and threadbox

I was on sick leave for last to days, so I was basically stuck in bed for that time. Playing with papers in the bed is pretty challenging, so this time I went for fabrings, thread and a needle. I found a lovely tutorial for a pincushion (click here) which I attached at the top of the box. So now I can keep my threads and needles in the same place :-) I'm sending this project for a PWC challenge which was about to be anything but the card.

Bylam na zwolnieniu lekarskim przez ostatnie dwa dni, wiec przez ten czasbylam poprostu przykuta do lozka. Zabawa papierami lezac w lozku to nielada wyczyn, dlatego tym razem wybralam materialy, nitki i igle. Znalazlam swietny tutorial na igielnik (kliknij tutaj), ktory przyczepilam na pudeleczku. Teraz moge trzymac i nitki i igly w tym samym miejscu :-) Wysylam ta prace na "niekartkowe" wyzwanie PWC.

And this is how it looked befoe...
A tak wygladalo to przed metamorfoza....

First spring card

Even though -25 degrees outside doesn't indicate that spring would appear any time soon, it doesn't hurt to dream about it ;-) I got inspired by Art-Piaskownica's challenge requiring using four colours: sky-blue, green, white and black. And here's how my first spring card of this year has been created.

Mimo, ze -25 stopni na dworze nie wskazuje na to zeby wiosna wkrotce sie pojawila, ale nie zaszkodzi o niej pomarzyc ;-) Zainspirowalam sie wyzwaniem Art Piaskownicy wymagajacym uzycie kolorow: blekitnego, zielonego, bialego i czarnego. I tak powstala moja pierwsza wiosenna kartka tego sezonu.
I had a chance to play with a pencil and a hobby knife. I draw the branches and a birdcage myself.
Mialam okazje pobawic sie olowkiem i skalpelkiem. Sama narysowalam galezie i klatke dla ptaszka.

Little smile...

I'm sending my today's work for another PWC challenge. The aim was to use a stamp in some way. I have used a stamp of the plants and cut it out. The text on the card says: "Little smile changes the world" :)

Moja dzisiejsza prace wysylam na kolejne wyzwanie PWC. Zadaniem bylo uzycie stempli. Uzylam stempla z motywem roslinnym i wycielam go. Oto efekt :)

 Thank you for the comments!

Dziekuje za komentarze!

Wedding card

This time I prepared a card for a challenge of PWC according to a map prepared by Mosia.
Tym razem przygotowalam kartke na wyzwanie PWC wg mapki przygotowanej przez Mosie.

I painted background with acrylic paint and I used the same stencil as in my memo board project (see post here). I used a business-card paper to give it some texture. The birds are made of a chip board and I also painted them with an acrylic paint.
Pomalowalam tlo farba akrylowa i uzylam tego samego szablonu jak przy projekcie z tablica (zajrzyj tutaj). Do tego uzylam papiero wizytowkowego by nadac mu troche tekstury. Ptaszki wykonane sa z kartonikow, rowniez pomalowalam je farba akrylowa.
