Well, I thought I’d give it a go and subscribe… I usually don’t use clubs as I have a very special style – I only like shabby chic and vintage – but as I said I thought I’d give it a try. I was very pleased with two of the packages, disappointed with one and one was OK, but not more. I use the things I like and give the rest to the kids. The following pictures shows a bit of what I’ve accomplished with the packages so far.

If I have used material not included in the kits, it’s stated under the pictures.


Stamp from Colorbox, Doodlebug Velvet Flocking, brads from CC Hobby, Distress Inks .


The key is cut with the Gazelle, alphas are Prima Whispered Words, flowers from all over the place (Prima, WildOrchidsCrafts, a few decorations flowers and some beaded ones), clear EP, Distress Inks, stamp.

Pink, I think…

In this house it’s not easy to avoid pink. With two daughters and two granddaughters there ought to be a lot of pink! And it seems like they all have this color as their favorite.



I had great fun with the chipboard die-cut (Ellison ornament) when I was about to cover it with something. I started with covering it with KlaeberFix, and after about 30 minutes I sprinkled UTEE Britez Fuchsia over it. Just sprinkled, not covered. Heated and melted the UTEE and found out the KlaeberFix was still tacky! So I put some Doodlebug Velvet between the UTEE speckles and ended with a lovely structure.


I have recently taken up beading again – just making embellishments, not jewelry. This net is a 3-bead basic net made with Matsuno 11/0’s.


One of the flowers is also a beaded creation, a bit tricky to find out how to make it so a tutorial will be posted later!




Some beaded flowers here, too. The princess crown is from Panduro (sale buy) and painted with Ranger Crackle Paint. Love this…



More of those beaded flowers:


And a beaded fringe (part from one of my own necklace patterns):


No, I didn’t find any pictures of Jessica to use!

Papers are almost all S.E.I., flowers are Prima, mulberry roses and BossKut.
