A short report from the fair in Milano..

Hello dear followers!

I've been pretty busy lately but I have some pictures to share with you that I'm sure you're gonna loooooove..

I'm a very lucky person indeed..
..and I know it.. LOL!
I've been invited to give a hand at the Magnolia booth in Milano..

It was a blast!
It always is..

I was blown away by all the gorgeous creations around me and whenever I had a minute off I spent it staring at them..
Of course I had to touch'em all too.. LOL!
All those gorgeous details.. The different ways in which they are coloured..
My teammates are extraordinary!!!

There were tons of stamps..
Big ones..
Small ones..
Baskets full of beautiful flowers..
And loads of wonderful dies..
Can you imagine??

One thing you cannot miss is this pic..
They brought The Italy Collection..
5 marvellous stamps that we all desperately need, right?

I had to take the pictures when no one was there because you can imagine how crazy it gets here when all the Magnolia lovers are around..
Here's a hint..

Magnolia is attending a craft fair in Toulouse this week..
But they will be back in Italy next week from the 15th to the 18th of October for Abilmente Vicenza..

Guess who's going there for 4 more amazing days?
I told you I was lucky!!!

Stay tuned folks!
I'll be back very very soon!!!

Hugs, Tina

Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog - Charms

Hello guys!
Nevertheless I'm here..
Posting a bit of inspiration for the Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog..

Here's my take on this week's Charms theme..

I have chosen Bohemian Peony Tilda for this post..
She's one of my favourites from the latest Magnolia Boho Collection 2015..

The gorgeous papers are from Pion Design this time..
You can get so many different patterns from just 2 double-sided sheets that it looks like you've used a whole paper pad..
These are great to use with layouts too..
There are a lot of hearts on this card and I knew that the stunning Romantic Key charm will fit perfectly..
The flower die-cut is from the Doohickey Club Magazine..

These beautiful tags are from Magnolia..
And as you can see I used a doily, lots of cheesecloth, some half-pearls, a feather and some gesso..

I played with a Memory Box stencil and added lots of hearts on the card..

Here you can see some more amazing WOC flowers I used and the beautiful lace Fleur..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use the ink pads and reinkers..
The dots on her cheeks and eyes were made with a bit of white acrylic paint..

Hope you can see all the sparkle around there..
I've used the stencil around the image too..
With some Texture Paste and Martha Stewart Glitter..
The small dots are made with Liquid Pearls..
The sparkle on her band are Stickles..
And the Peony's got clear Crackle Paint on..

Hope you have the time to leave me a comment and let me know what you think..
It would warm my heart..

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Time For Magnolia Challenge #99 - Let's Play Bingo (Lace/Pearls/Flowers)
2. Magnolia Forever - Challenge #18 - Rhinestones and Glitter
3. Midweek Magnolias - Challenge #122 - Anything Goes
4. The ABC Challenge - R is for Recipe (pink/dies and/or punches/lace)

Hugs, Tina

Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog - Flower Power

Morning everyone!

Here's my weekly post for the Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog..
This week's theme is Flower Power..
You know I loooooove flowers..
And I wanted them everywhere..

I chose this gorgeous Magnolia stamp called Golden Week Tilda..
It had to be a Tilda with some flowers, right?
The papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics 6x6 Paper Pad..
The ones I picked both have a floral pattern on.. 

Then there are all these magnificent Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers..
Rosebuds, Open Roses, Gypsophila Flowers, Sweetheart Blossoms, Cosmos Daisies..
I added a bit of everything..
And guess what?
There are flowers on the lace too..

I've added a beautiful doily under all those layers and I had to use some Vintage Seam Binding to tie on my favourite tag - Tilda Tag..
When it comes to charms I'm all about keys.. This time I chose the Little Key..
I've added some cheesecloth under the flowers and corrugated cardboard to give some more texture..
The gorgeous Butterfly is a Magnolia die too.. I've used a piece of very thick vellum kinda thing to cut it out and I really like the effect..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've used a stamp from the Stempelglede Vintage Garden Set around the image..
I just love these stamps..
So I had to use a sentiment from the Follow Your Heart set too..
It's hidden on the tag..

Used some Stickles on the petals and some Picket Fence Crackle Paint and Gesso on all the other flowers and other parts of the card..

I wanna enter this card into the following challenges:
1. Simply Magnolia - Vintage
2. Time For Magnolia Challenge #97 - Dies and/or Punches

That's all from me for today..
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask..

Hugs, Tina

2 Baby Gift Sets

Hi there!

It's about time I post something, right?
This week has been very productive but you will have to be patient to see all the new stuff I made..

I have two baby gift sets to show you today..

One was made for my cousin's friend and one is available for purchase in my shop HERE..

So.. Here are some pics..

The Maja Design Vintage Baby collection is so gorgeous that I wanted to use as many different sheets as  possible..
You can find them all HERE..
There is a card and a simple tag.. Both to be hidden in a super cute box..
I didn't want to post 3000 pictures so I made two simple collages..
Hopefully you can still get all the details..
The stamp is called Little Trumpety With Bow from the Lost and Found Collection 2014..
Soooooo cute..
I coloured both images with Distress Inks..
The postmarks are from Kort&Godt..

The flowers and berries are from WOC and Magnolia..
I've used my GoKreate dies for the card's base and Spellbinders and Marianne Design dies for the circle..
The Doohickey Club Magazine vol.5 is all about celebrating..
And that's where I found the gorgeous Celebration Balloons die and the Dress Tag that is soooo perfect for baby projects..

There are lots of other things I've used..
The ones I always use.. LOL!
Doilies.. Pearls..
Vintage Seam Binding.. Lace..
Some Liquid Pearls..
And Gesso.. Of course..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

If I have forgotten something just ask..
You can find the links to the products I used at the end of this post..

See ya!
