"Especially for Her" - Notebook Tutorial with 'Fabrika Decoru'

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a 'Fabrika Decoru' design team project. It is a little notebook for a lady, featuring the paper collection called "Especially for Her".



The patterns and especially the elements for cutting-out cannot leave you indifferent.




The notebook is A6 format and has 52 pages. 



I also have a video tutorial for creating this type of binding, as well as the cover and the signatures of this notebook. I hope you will find it useful and will give it a try.



Thanks for looking!

An ATC Box & Cards for Studio 75

Hello everyone!

I have an ATC box and cards to share today. This set was created using the wonderful paper line from Studio 75 - "Secret Garden" and it is shared on the 'Studio 75' blog today as well.


The box's base measures 4"X 6" X 2 1/2" and I got it from Clare@My Creative Spirit. Both of us are on the Graphic 45 design team and a while ago Clare sent a set of laser-cut parts for creating this ATC box to each one of the design team members.

If you are interested in purchasing a set of the chipboard parts for yourself, you can do it here. Clare also has an instructional video for assembling the box. It can be embellished in so many different ways!

I've added some metal embellishments to finish the box off:






There are 3 ATC cards inside the box, which were created with the paper from the same "Secret Garden" collection:

         

I loved to cut out the beautiful flowers from the cut out sheet:









The butterflies were also very cute!



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

A Mini Album With the "Shabby Dreams" by Fabrika Decoru

Hello everyone!

Life has been so hectic lately, and my two girls take so much of my attention! I feel like the more they grow up, the less time I have for myself, they always keep me busy :)

I have a few projects which have been made for different design teams and in the next few days I hope to share them all with you here, on my blog.

I want to thank everyone, who drops by and reads my posts and leaves the comments once in a while, I appreciate it a lot!

So, today I am sharing an album. It measures 5" X 5" and has been created using the papers by Fabrika Decoru ("Shabby Dreams" collection), as well as a lot of dies from the Fantasy Hobby Shop.


I was inspired by a cute mini album which I saw here, and simply couldn't resist making one for myself, using the products that I had at hand in that moment.




Here are a few close-ups of the cover:



As I've mentioned before, I've used a of the "Fantasy" dies throughout this album and here are the link to all of them:
Нож для вырубки Fantasy луговые травы "Коробочник"
Нож для вырубки Fantasy луговые травы "Ромашка"
Нож для вырубки Fantasy луговые травы "Лаванда полевая"
Нож для вырубки Fantasy "Вёсенка"















And here is the video overview in case you want to flip though the album's pages together with me :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
