Rusted bottle


Sweet Saturday! I've been keeping workshops today and having a blast! This project is a workshop piece as well, not done today of course, but earlier this year. If you wish to see what I've been up to today, please check my Instagram account (link)!


This bottle is my workshop sample from a rusted bottle workshop titled "Time consumes the core of things". I really loved keeping this workshop as it's an altered item, you get to play with Rust Paste set and I got to share little tips and tricks with them and other mediums. What's also wonderful about it is that I always asked everyone to bring their own bottle so there was a surprise element to me, too! Every bottle was so different and turned even more different after the workshop!

If you'd like to take a workshop with me, please keep an eye on the sidebar there on the left. I'll add all the agreed dates there. And if you don't see a workshop in your neck of woods, please send me an email and let's see if we can make it happen! 

Thank you for your visit! Have a splendid day!

Unicorn dream catcher - Sizzix


Sweet Friday! Or should I even say "sweet dreams"? Here's a little pastel dream I made using Sizzix dies. The inspiration to this dream catcher came from the feather die I ended up using for the trail of the catcher. I was intrigued by the shape of them and I wanted to use the die to something. As dream catchers seem still to be a thing, I thought to have a go with it. Then I put two and two together and thought to make a dream-like fairytale dream catcher. 


The unicorn die also contributed to the color scheme - I wanted it to be cute and soft. As my goal for this year is to use more textiles in my projects, I wanted to use something else than paper for the flowers so I took a look at my stash of felt. I picked up pale pink, light yellow and spring green. To form the base to the flowers I used a vine die and made a wreath like composition to the bottom of the dream catcher. 

First I thought to weave the net part of the catcher but then I managed to find a crocheted doily that was just the right size. Somehow the lace-like doily looked so much better and fitted the sweet, fairytale themed catcher fit for a princess.

I hope you liked this craft! From main Sizzix site (link) you can always find more inspiration, link to free downloadble papers and to current giveaways and competitions. Like now there's links for example to the new Making Essentials (link)wedding inspiration (link) and spring giveaway (link).

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to weekend!

Lovely Day - Prima Marketing


Moikka! Last but not least Creativation project! A layout using Vintage Floral collection together with some TJ products. Even though the collection is done for Traveler's Journal, it's also perfect for scrapbooking or cardmaking. More Prima TJ products here (link) and if you are keen on seeing just Vintage Floral, click here (link).


I absolutely adore this Vintage Floral collection! The paper designs are so beautiful and the color palette is awesome with the hint of mint! This page is done with one of my definite favorite papers from the collection. 

The photo in the layout is taken in Berlin, in the garden of Charlottenburg castle. The palace and the blooms seemed so appropriate for this collection. I mixed in some Traveler’s Journal products as well to embellish the page.

Thank you for your visit! Have a great day!

Cherry Blossom cards - Prima Marketing


Continuing with the Creativation projects! Yesterday it was a layout, today two cards and tomorrow I share the final layout and then they all are blogged! These cards are made using the Cherry Blossom collection (link).

As you can see, I went really minimalistic with these cards. Can you believe that I didn’t use any mediums in these? There’s just a simple faux stitch line going around the edge, nothing more. This gives the wonderful background paper a good chance to shine. I really feel I overdid myself with these in a way. Totally a different style and totally without mediums!

Thank you for stopping by today!

You are brilliant - Prima Marketing


Moikka! Be prepared for some Creativation overload! I'm finally sharing all the remaining Creativation projects one after another! That is two layouts and two cards using various collections. Sharing them feels a bit silly as there's newer collections from Prima already, but as these projects haven't been blogged yet, I think I ought to anyway.

This first layout is done using Amelia Rose. You can see the collection here (link) at Prima's site. I love how Amelia Rose is at the same time really floral and so modern! I used the modern side of the collection in this page about my older daughter. I painted a circle with gesso to draw the eye in to the photo and used the same circle theme to embellish the page as well.

Thank you for your visit today! Have a sweet Tuesday!

Altered palette - Wow Embossing Powder


Hello and happy Monday! It's again a new week. What better way to start it than share something new? This palette is first of its kind but I bet it's not the last. First you ask - first I used almost only embossing powders to color the project! 

I'm in a spring or even summer kind of mood and going for flowers and candy colors all the time. For this post I created something with flowers, yes, but the color scheme isn't the most summery of them all. I actually first thought to use white gesso instead of black... but I just love how the black really lets the metallic touches shine and shows the colors! 


Can you believe that all the colors in the palette are created with embossing powders and foil? On top of those I only used black gesso and silver wax, but all the turquoise and green shades are of embossing powders!  

I created a step by step tutorial to this piece. If you want to see the steps, please visit Wow's blog here (link)


This kind of project needs some time and patience, but the end result is quite striking, don't you think? Like I said, the black background really makes the colors and shine pop. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you find this post inspiring! Ta ta for now!

Vintage Floral tag - Prima Marketing


Sweet and pleasant Sunday! Here's another Creativation project finally shared - a layered tag using Vintage Floral collection. I love the tones of that collection! The collection is actually done for Traveler's Journals and Planners, but as it has 12x12 papers, you can also use it to scrapbooking. You can see some sneaks and inspiration from this post (link) in old Prima's blog.

As the collection is done to TJ, you can easily embellish the projects using the Traveler’s Journal products. In this tag I layered some of the ephemera on top of each other and then added the cluster to a base cut from one of the Vintage Floral papers. The pale blue and mint are a perfect match to the tea colored neutrals for a fresh summer look!

Have a great start to the new week! Thank you for stopping by today!
