LLLC Winter Scene

Time for another La-La Land Crafts project as it is Monday again already! Our theme this week is to create a scene so of course I had to make a winter scene! This also means that I am now done with my first Christmas card for April! Yey!

I decided to do no-lines again, this time on Winter Molli. I also coloured in the a tree die and the lamp-post die as I didn’t want them in solid colours, You can find a list of all the LLLC products below the photo. I’ve primarily used Maja Design and Bazzill paper, to which I added a bit of white acrylic paint to give the card more of a winter and snow feeling. I put Molli on foam tape and put her feet so that it looks like she is standing in front of the card with her feet on the table.

Here is a photo taken from the side.

LLLC April Showers

Monday again already. That means it is time for me to show off another La-La Land Crafts project. The theme for this week is April Showers. I thought Dancing in the Rain Marci would be perfect for this, and I decided yet again to go with a combination of colours I don’t use very often, green and pink.

As some of you may have seen, I’ve never been one to use a lot of dies. 3 or so, sure, but not a lot on one project. So I decided to challenge myself, and a challenge it was. From three dies onwards I had to tell myself “just one more, come on” and then “one more die, you can do it”, hahaha. It worked, though. I have used SEVEN different ones! That is a lot for me! You can find a list of them all below.

The papers are mostly by Bazzill (the plain colours) and Maja Design.

The side on view shows how the butterflies are only attached by their body and that Marci and the middle background border have both been put on foam tape to give it more dimention.

A photo from another angle where you can see the bottom flower better and how the butterfly pops up.

Teddy in hot air balloon

Do you remember the tag I shared on Monday? The La-La Land Crafts one? Well, the kid liked it and wanted one to use as a bookmark. I couldn’t say no to that, so I made it in the requested purples and pinks. I won’t show the background, as it has the kid’s name embedded, but basically it has the same bottom border die and the quote “a book is like a garden carried in the pocket“. Links to products and list of Copics below the photo.

Sending smiles tag

It is Monday again so we’re due another La-La Land Crafts post. This time the theme is anything goes so I decided to make a tag! LLLC is having a sale until tomorrow night as well. Check out the info at the bottom of this post.

The adorable teddy bear in the hot air balloon is called Sending Smiles. Isn’t it adorable? I coloured it up with Copics and played around with various combinations of colours which I rarely use together. It is fun to play around with new combination, I think.

I think the tag itself is absolutely gorgeous. What I did was that I cut it out twice and glued the sides together so I’d get the same background front and back. then I cut out some various bits in various colours to make it even more colourful. It was such a fun tag to make and there will be plenty more of those from me for sure!

Stamp:
Sending Smiles (sentiment also from there)

Thinking of you Marci

Another Monday, another La-La Lands Crafts day! It is getting pretty close to easter and I doubt I will have much time to craft over the next two weeks or so. For once I am pretty much on top of things, though. Go me!

This week our theme is Flowers. A good excuse for me to make a new cards with flowers on. You will find a list of products I’ve used with links to the items below the photos, above the list of Copics. I’ve gotten better at layering up cards again lately at least, not all clean and simple cards, but I am still not great at using flowers on a lot of projects. But here is one! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the papers by Maja Design and charm by Tim Holtz.

The leaves are pretty great. They cut wonderfully and you have one going each direction! Yey!

Here you can see how I’ve layed up the dies. First the Filigree Flower under the image, then the Deco Border around the image itself, and lastly the butterfly on top.

I love these butterflies! I’ve given them a prominent body with a string of pearls.

Here is one final photo of the card from the floral arrangement side.
