Get well Soon....

Hi dearest crafting friends!

I hope you had a wonderful week and that you are geared up for the weekend! I really need some crafting time as I had a tough week and I did not have the time or energy to pick up my colours, so I'm in withdrawal now!! :D

A couple of weeks ago I finished this card with Magnolia Get well Collection. It is one of my favourites right now, I really loved this collection!

You can find these awesome products at Magnolia-licious Store, by clicking on the names of the products linked below: 

The stamp used is : Tilda with Bunny Slippers (From the GW17 Collection), Heart Medicine Doo Hickey die(from the same collection). Isn't it cool?! 

Also available at the Store are the Sofiero Maja Design papers and charms.

For two of the flowers I used white foamiran, white stamens and a styrofoam flower centre covered with silver glitter. 

I coloured the image using Distress inks, and also used twine, lace, paper doily, flowers cardboard heart with gesso and pearl.

I coloured the image using Distress reinkers, although I enjoy also pencils and Copics, I just love my Ranger Inks.

Here you can see the twine and the charm, together with the sweetest medicine and the cardboard heart. I just love the look of lace with Maja papers!

A close up of the foamiran flowers, paper flower and the vintage button added. The leaves are cut by using a punch I had for quite some years now.

I also added some flu stuff as a background to this card :) You can catch my Beechams Cold and Flu, a thermometer and some hand sanitizer there as well :) I needed all of these some weeks ago, plus the Halls mints.

I hope you loved the card, and that you get to play with some of this cool stuff yourself! I wish I had all day to create!! ) lol

New Magnolia-cious challenge and Giveaway!

Hi there!

Today marks the first challenge of Magnolia-licious challenge blog for 2018, and if you have already come on my blog yesterday, you will know that I have something special going on for you here right now.

Yesterday I shared an easel card I did as my inspirational card for Magnolia-licious. Today, I have a gift box which I did to match with this same card. I did this for the same reason that this gift box forms part of the surprise - therefore I could not make the full reveal yesterday. So today is the Day!!

This is the gift box that together with yesterday's card can be yours to: (1) either keep for yourself, or (2) for you to give away as a gift - you choose!! :D 

This is the set that I'm talking about, and I'm sure that you all love to give away some hand crafted gifts. 

But that is not all! The giveaway consist of this set together a with a  Magnolia stamp and some crafting goodies for you. as I said both the card and the box will also be yours (I shall not write anything in the card so that you can use it if you want to. 

You can see the whole giveaway and how to win it further down. 

The image which I used for this box is Bon Voyage Tilda (2010), and I used the same and matching Magnolia papers from the card. I also added a small bouquet of paper flowers, some sea shells, pearls, ribbon and some Tim Holtz Ephemera. To also enhance the matching factor, I also used from My DooHickey Vol.10 the heart die to include another two hearts - just like in the card. The person who wins this cutie will find some goodies in it! ;) shhh!!

so now... let's get to the giveaway: This is the whole lot that you can win if..... (scroll beneath the pic) 

1. You go and purchase some crafting goodies from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS Store - you have until Thursday 18th (of January). All I can say is that Shawn has some amazing and very tempting paper pads, chipboard, stamps, dies, foamiran.... the list is endless, you have lots to choose from!  You can see and example from my projects ;) 

2. Then come back here on this post and let me know by commenting on this post that you did your purchase. Automatically you will be in for the draw. 

I will draw a winner and check out with the owner, Shawn, about the purchase. Winner will be announced here, on this Blog on the 19th January  - I will do it in my evening as I live in the heart of Europe, so my time zone is different - in this way I will give all of you a fair amount of time. I will also post worldwide. 

If the winner does not communicate with me here until the 22nd, I will draw another name

I will appreciate greatly if you spread the word by copying the giveaway picture and make it on the side of your blog with a link to mine - this is not compulsory, but I am am aware that not many visitors come often on my blog, so I would like other people to know about this chance to win this goodie bag/box. I just love to make someone happy. 

I wish you all a very happy week ahead, and may all your hopes and dreams come true!!! 

Keeping you in my prayers :)

Just because I care...

Hello there!!

I hope this year started well for all of you, and that you are finding some time and motivation to do that thing that you love most.


We at Magnolia-licious had a few days of break from DT duties, which worked good for me so that I could get a bit ahead - very much not like I usually do, as I have usually finish my projects in the last days which I would normally need them! :) Anyway, this easel card which I sharing with you for inspiration is my first card for 2018.

I really enjoyed myself doing it, let's say that the products from Magnolia-licious Store really inspire me to play! :D


Below you will see the list of products I have used, let me know what you think of it.

This New Year put me in the mood of doing a little game... let me see....

Tomorrow we have the start of a new challenge at Magnolia-licious, and in collaboration with Shawn and the team, I will be organising a giveaway for all of you amazing crafters. So... those of you who as from today, 8th January till the 15th, purchase crafting goodies from Magnolia-licious Store will get this card from me... and some small surprises with it?! :D The FULL REVEAL of the giveaway will be shown TOMORROW, here on this blog. 

 So come back tomorrow and in the coming days and let me know that you have purchased from the STORE. After checking out  the purchase with Shawn (the owner) I will draw a lucky winner! :D (Only those comments with a purchase will be eligible to win). 

The winner will be announced here on the 16th January.


Now what did I use for this card:

Stamp: Heavenly Tilda from the Aspen Holidays (2016) Collection

Paper: Magnolia paper

Lots of Magnolia dies: (1) My DooHickey Box Kit vol.10 (using the heart die from this kit)
(2) Magnolia Doo Hickey die ST17 - Tree Stump
(3) Vintage dooHickey die 17 - Small Square 
(4) Parsley and Rocket Salad die


I also added some Foamiran flowers to the easel card. For these I used red and light pink foamiran from the large selection of colours which Shawn carries in the Store, and black and white stamens. 


From my stash I also added some lace, a doily and that ticket sentiment, together with some paper flowers and leaves. Tilda was coloured by Prismacolour Pencils - yes Santa was very good to me this year! I was literally in tears when I opened my gift!! :)

For the inside I stamped the large Magnolia  mushroom on a die-cut label and coloured it with pencils as well. I forgot what collection this was from, but it went well with the paper, so I loved it.


As you can see, the Store carries a lot of crafting goodies, and Shawn is adding more items. Have you seen the awesome berries, and the chipboard pieces? They look awesome!!

I shall leave you for now, but I do hope to hear from you. I LOVE how this card turned out, and I would really like to give it to someone who appreciates it! I will not we writing on the inside, so that the person who wins it, can use it, or keep it... whatever you choose! :) Let me know when you purchase, and you'll be in a chance to receive it at home. Anyone can enter, I will ship worldwide.


Many Blessings
