New Year Gifts for Teachers

Hello! Today my blog is full of mint color! And I want to share with you three ornaments I created for Alice’s kindergarten teachers. They are good people and spend near 10 hours per day with our kids, so I wanted to make something special for them. And as in the last year I decided to make ornaments. They are fast to create and very cheap but look at the million! I don’t want to give them! LOL! I used clear plastic balls ordered on Aliexpress (the cost was near $0.8 per ball) — they can be opened and filled with something. I colored one half of each ball with the cheapest acrylic paint. I colored from the inner side, so the color is solid and perfect from the inside. I made three layers and used the sponge for the coloring, so it has the interesting texture. Then, while the

April Paper GD Projects

Hello! Today I want to share some projects I made with the new winter collection created by my good friend specially for Russian brand April Paper. Here you can find the layout, the card and some pictured of my advent calendar for this year. I am sorry — the post will be in Russian, but I promise to tell you more about my advent later! Добрый день! Очень рада сегодня показать вам свои работы из коллекции Снежная Нежная от April Paper. Она была создана Алиной Багровой, я уже раньше рассказывала вам много своих восторгов.))) Это была самая долгожданная коллекция сезона — стильная, в модных цветах и с очень милыми зверями! Начну со странички — это была проба пера, когда коллекция уже есть в дрожащих руках и хочется поскорее отрезать хоть кусочек!! Я выбрала фотографию про снегопад и сказочную карету Золушки, и чтобы поддержать тему падающего снега для фона выбрала лист «Уютная зима». Под фотографию

Holiday Gift Wrapping

Hello! Today I want to share with you some quick ideas for holiday gift wrapping. I used deer dies to cut the decorations, also I added tag, doily and the wreath. Also you can see that I used the different twines for tying: ordinary red cord — but I tied it chaotically many times around the box. For another box I sewed a garland of tiny circles and wrapped it some times around the box. The paper I printed on office paper and wrapped my gifts.  It’s easy way to get the paper, especially for the small boxes. Всем привет! Сегодня в блоге магазина Чайка выходит моя небольшая статья про то, как можно оригинально украсить новогодние подарки. Я уже много раз говорила, что эта тема меня просто будоражит последнее время. Здесь я покажу только пару фотографий, а за подробностями обращайтесь в блог Чайки, чтобы мне не повторяться ;) Всем отличного

Hello! Today I’m on Mama Elephant‘s blog with my Designer Series where I played with Crafty Labels stamp set. These labels are perfect for making tags for gift wrapping, and I made the project using only this set. And I want to write some tips on making such package. Use the blog for more detail. have a good day! Привет! Сегодня в блоге Мамы Слон выходит мой пост, где я показываю простой способ сделать коробочки, самодельную упаковочную бумагу и украшения. И все с использованием только одного набора! Я очень подсела на всякие такие упаковки и время от времени стараюсь практиковаться в этом деле.)) Процесс создания можно увидеть на коллаже ниже — в принципе все очень просто!  

Happy 5 Birthday!

It is 3:35 am here and for our family means the one thing — five years ago Alice was delivered to the world. It was really crazy five years and the last year was really amazing with this growing girl! I can write many words about the motherhood, but if you are moms — you can understand me! She is our pride, so sweet piece of life! And I want to share quickly the birthday decor I made for her (we placed it when she fell asleep — to make the surprise for Alice). Two layouts in the frames (I colored with the white acrylic paint old frames), also I sewed the garland of circles, and we also ordered the balloons and I want to stick some Alice’s pictures to the balloons. На часах будет 3:35 утра у нас в городе, когда выйдет этот пост. Ровно пять лет назад в

Vintage Gift Wrapping

Hello, friends! I’m here today with my project for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #266: That’s A Wrap with Lexi. This time the challenge is to create the wrap paper. It was fun! I picked Stitched Sentiments Stamp Set for my project, and for hoop I chose Rustic cream cardstock, so the style of my package switched to vintage. And I couldn’t use the white paper. So I just colored the ordinary office paper with the coffee))) Let it dry and stamped my pattern with soft colors. Then I tied the jute twine and decorated the box (we absolutely have no small boxes at home! So I used the empty box from hubby’s Galaxy LOL!). For decorating I cut the lace doily of the same Rustic cream cardstock, added the hoop with the banner and sentiment, and also the handmade tassel made of the ombre colored floss thread and gold string. For the package design
