Lollipop card with tutorial

Hey hey! How's it going? Have you been enjoying the weekend so far? I did some baking and even managed to squeeze in some crafting time while my baby is sleeping. One of the things I made is this lollipop card that I am about to show you. And I also made a video tutorial for it. Scroll to the bottom of this post if you want to see it.

Here's the photo of the lollipop I made.


As you can see I didn't do any stamping on this project. Shocking, I know. lol I really like this "Love" word die from Whimsy designs and I wanted that to be in the center of attention. For decorating the lollipop I only used a piece of ribbon from Crafty ribbons and 2 silver heart shaped sequins from my stash.

And here's the video tutorial for this project. :)


Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! :)

Good morning my crafty friends! I'm back with more cuteness from The Greeting Farm. We are at our third day of previews and today we are showcasing the Ho ho holidays set. It's another "must have" set, I'm telling you. ;) As all the other sets this one comes with matching dies as well. 


I used the adorable Santa and the sentiment stamp from the set. Doesn't this Santa look so happy, fun and cheerful? I just wanna give him a hug. I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils and I used liquid applique on the white parts of Santa's hat and dress.


So, this is it for today. See you again tomorrow for the new day of previews. xx

The Greeting Farm July release - day 2

Good morning my crafty friends and welcome to the second day of The Greeting Farm previews. Today we are showcasing another adorable set. It's called "Let's mingle" and I absolutely love it. Why? Just wait til you see it and you'll know immediately why. ;)

I decided to transform another of those lunch bags into a gift bag.


Sooooo, what do you think? Aren't these mice just too cute? They bring a smile to my face each time I see them. :) Or some reason I had a Jingle bells song stuck in my head all the time I was making this bag and I could just imagine these mice dancing and singing along. Lol

For this bag I used some scraps of design paper from my stash. I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils. I raised the images and the sentiment on foam pads for some extra dimension.

So much for today. See you again tomorrow. :)

I'd like to enter my bag to the following challenges:

TGF July release - day 1

Good morming my crafty friends. I hope everything is fine with you and that you had a lovely weekend. We went to the sea for two days last week and it was nice. I was a bit afraid how my baby girl will take the drive, but there were no problems. It was her first time abroad and first time at the sea. And the day after we got home we started giving her solid food for the first time. So this week has been full of "firsts" for Amadeja. :)

Speaking about the "firsts" ... Today is the first preview day of July release at The Greeting Farm. I'm sure you all heard the "Christmas in July" phrase before and I think this phrase describes the new release perfectly. We are starting the previews with Dashing stamp set.


These reindeers are adorable and fun. I had lots of fun playing with them. I love the sentiments that come with this set as well.

I didn'use any design paper on my card, just some cardstock in different colours. I embossed the white cardstock with Cuttlebug embossing folder and I used foam pads to give the card some dimension. 

Hop to ths TGF blog to check out what my teamies made with this stamp set. And don't forget to come back again tomorrow for the second day of previews. ;)

Have a wonderful day! xx

Have a fairy good day

Good morning my crafty friends. I hope you've been enjoying your week so far and that it's not too hot where you are. We went to my parents' for lunch on Saturday and on Sunday we were having a quiet and lazy day at home. It's pretty hot outside during the day, so we stayed in and played with the little one and I even managed to do some crafting. :)

Over the last couple of days I moved my craft place - again. I'm back to my original place. A couple of weeks ago I moved all my crafty stuff to Amadeja's room. I thought I would set my craft area here and that my hubby  could go to my "old" craft place, but it didn't work out. So I'm back at my old place. It took me a while to get everything back here, but now I have things more organized and I put all the sharp and small objects on the top shelves and/or in the closet/drawer to keep them away from my baby girl. She's in the phase where she grabs everything she can get her hands of and puts those things in the mouth, so we nee to be careful.

Anyways, back to crafting ... I decorated another brown lunch bag and made a gift bag out of it.


I used this gorgeous purple paper that I had in my stash forever. The orange paper are actually recycled envelopes. I din't want to over-embellish my bag, so I only used a piece of pearl string and 2 flowers to decorate it. In the center of the purple flower I put the adorable little fairy from The greeting farm. She's from the recently released Little fairies stamp set and so is the sentiment. These stamps come with matching dies and I used that to cut the image out of the paper. Colouring was done with Promarkers and pencils.


For the handles I used a gorgeous orange twill tape ribbon from Crafty ribbons.

So much from me today. Have a great day!
Hugs! xx
