Let’s bloom by Rikka Kovasin

I love the increasing amount of light here up north! The long winter starts to be over and there’s sunlight and if not that, at least daylight streaming through the windows again! Ah! This is effecting my creatinons as I start to use different colours and have noticed a big increase in my use of flowers in my crafts!


So when thinking about the project I was going to make for this post, I decided to do a flowery layout. I used sweet, pastel colors and a lot of blooms to make a spring-like page with candy-like colors. Please see how the layout was made from the video below.



The layout is about our trip to Berlin a couple of summers ago. While in there, we visited the beautiful Charlottenburg Palace with a lovely Baroque style garden so the flowers seemed really appropriate for this page!

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely day!

Always Creative by Cindy Brown

Hello Dear creative souls
Today I present you a tutorial of a Canvas I made for 7 Dots Studio. Of course I also made a little video for you.



I start with the magnificent papers from the Domestic Goddess collection. I cut out the beautiful flowers out of the papers.
I stick them together and addd gesso for texture. Then I make a compose papers and tags in a centre of my project. I also add jute twine to the tags.



I like to add a lot of Flowers. To finish it off I add some Splatters.
Please enjoy the video.

Mint Julep by Marie Johansson

Using scraps to create cards is a perfect way to use up pieces of paper or embellishments that otherwise will find their way into your trash bin. I decided to make a card from a piece of the “Mint Julep” 12×12 patterned paper from the Cotton Candy Dreams Collection. I used the paper for the little round box I created for 7 Dots Studio last month, if you remember that piece.

Tags, stickers & a Cotton Candy Dreams flair from UmWowStudio, together with a couple of flowers make the card look great.

Another great way to use up small scraps from patterned papers is to use them when you die cut. I die cut the leaves on the card from a scrap piece of paper from the Writer´s Block Collection.

This video will guide you trough how I created the card:

Thanks for stepping by today.
