Something amazing just happened...

Good Evening,

I've had this little secret for a while and today I'm able to share it with you. Jennifer contacted me a a few months back and she asked if I wanted to make a guest video on her channel.. I think I literally stopped  breathing for a while while reading that email. I think this is the biggest achievement in my crafting "career" and I felt so honoured just to be asked.  

I've been following Jennifer for a long and she is the kindest person I know in the crafting community. I think she is just an angel on Earth and I believe we all should follow her by giving away a little bit of kindness every day. Thank you so much, Jennifer! Hopefully I made you proud with my guest video. 

I made this card here:

Stamps: Lacy Scrolls and Fresh Freesia fby Altenew
Dies: Pierced Rectangles by My Favourite Things

Chloe from Purple Onion Designs

Hello my crafting friends,

Today I have a card made with Purple Onion Designs stamps. I'm so glad I finally got this video edited and ready for you. I used Chloe - a bunny with a flower - and Bloom No.2 stamps to create my card today. In the video I am concentrating on how to colour a fur and add texture to it to make it look more realistic. I used my go-to colouring technique: copics combined to coloured pencils. Here's my card:

I made this into a video tutorial, you can watch it here or in HD in Youtube.

Altenew 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop


Today I'm so thrilled to be part of Altenew's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Celebration. You know, I'm a newbie in the crafting world and I'm kind embarrassed to let you know that I wasn't even crafting at the time of their first blog hop. My hubby went to the US in June that year and I placed my first order for Simon then. I remember that I long went back and forth whether should I order Magnolias for her- set or not. I was so drooling over the beautiful flowers but I wasn't sure if I could ever colour them properly. Well, I decided to order them after all and it has become one of my all time favourites from Altenew. 

A year later, Tasnim took me under her loving wings despite of my inexperience in crafting and ever since Altenew has felt like home to me. Thank you so much Tasnim and Jennifer for letting me be part of your Team! It's really been a blast and I've loved every moment of it! Hopefully we have many more years to come ahead of us.

To celebrate Altenew, I made a card with my favourite stamp set and had a blast in colouring it. Hope you like it! 

I made this into a video tutorial, you can watch it here or in HD in YouTube
