Mini notebooks or Pocket sized notebooks

Hello everyone!
Today I would like to show you what we have made during the weekend with my 9 year old daughter Sophia.
These lovely notebooks are hand stitched with cotton thread. I used white crochet thread.
For the covers I used textured cardstock for pastel colored notebooks and smooth cardstock for the bright tropical notebooks.

Feathers, apples and other embellishments are cut with silhouette cameo. I created my cutting files in illustrator and then cut them out with my Silhouette.

Fun part is to decorated the feathers. We heat embossed them with colored embossing powder. Our favorite is a red feather with gold glitter embossing powder. I used American Crafts gold glitter embossing powder . It actually has real pieces of glitter in it. I just love that powder, it gives very shiny, festive effect.

Afternoon tea ~Watercolor Mother's day card

Hello there,

Just a quick post to show my new cards I made for Mother's day. I have not used this stamp in ages. I think it is a perfect stamp for a mother's day card ;) Would love to have a tea at that veranda! I used alcohol ink to stamp the image and watercolor with watercolor markers and  Japanese watercolor brush pen.
For the background I used Merci Collections 'Antique trends'

Up, up and away. Hot Air balloon Party

In December I was asked to made Hot Air balloon invitations for little Chloe's christening.
Time has come to celebrate it.
It was a pleasure to help decorate the little Chloe 's Christening celebration. 
I have to admit that it was a challenging task to create 9 fragile Hot Air balloon centerpieces.
All the guests loved and enjoyed Chloe's party!!!
