Family! that's the whole story - CSI case file no. 231


After a very long period of absence, it is so good to join again with CSI! Love, love, love the case files and the ton of inspiration by the DT and the special investigators.

The clues I used to solve this case were:
Scheme - I've used all 5 colors
Evidence - solid white cardstock, stripes, twine, panctuation marks, stars, hearts.
Testimony - my journaling tells what was (and still is) my source of power, which helped me go through when my boy was diagnosed with cancer and got the chymotherapy.
This is what I wrote: "The family support, the legacy we inherited from our parents, these are the things that helped us to deal with your cancer disease. The way they stood by us, the love and comfort they gave me, were the source of my power to go through that rough period we had."

Thank you for stopping by. Your comments ar much appreciated.

Our Paris - a romantic mini folder album


Hello everyone,
This is a mini folder album I've made for my sister's birthday, plus a birthday card for her.

Since she went with her spouse to Paris, I thought it would be just perfect to make her a mini album for all those lovely photos they took on their visit there.
The hebrew title on the front says: Breathe, Smile, Love.

I've used papers from several companies: Prima, 7Dots Studio, K&Co. and more scraps from my never ending pile.

Though it's a mini album and it is quite flat, it can hold many photos inside. It has places for photos and for notes to document the precious moments. Lots of photo mats, tags and stamps. I've kept all embelies flat.
I've made a short video with close-ups:

And here's the birthday card I've made for her too. In the inside there's a pocket with many tags with encouraging sentiments:

A birthday card

I've been MIA for soooo long time, but here I am again :).
Today I would like to share with you a birthday card I've made for one of my besties, who will turn 50 in a couple of days.


It's a double zigzag fage fold card. The inspiration is from Marianne's blog and you can find the tutorial righ here. I used the ScorePal to built the card and the belt, which made it pretty easy.

I used 6X6 pad LemonCrfat new collection, House of Roses. It's a beautiful, romantic and vintage collection, and I will definitely use more and more of this collection.

I loved the dreamy look of this moodboard and the bouquet the bride is holding.

Here's some close-ups on the card, closed and opened:







I would like to enter this card to the Lemon Craft #4 challenge "Be delicate",
and also for the Score Pal challenge #37 'More than one score plus favorite color combination (I just love the pink. soft brwon, cream, with a touch of green combo).

Thank  you for stopping by and I would love to read your comments.

You Rock! - Stuck?! Dec 1st reveal

Hello everyone :), this is my 2nd post today (for my Scrap Africa reveal post, please click HERE), with my take on Stuck?! Sketches Dec 1st reveal.
Here's the sketch:
Usually, I don't scrap more than 2 photos at the most. this time I decided to challenge myself and used 4 photos of my oldest:
This time I decided to go on a more clean design, no messy mixed media style :).
For my lo I used some DCWV pp, some scraps from Echo Park, Simple Stories and Webster's Pages. I also used StudioFourteen40' flair buttons.
Here are some close-ups on the details:




We would LOVE to see your takes on this sketch, and don't forget Stuck?! is having a GDT call, so if you're interested, put GDT after your name :).
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much!

Warm and cosy

We have a new sketch for you at Scrap Africa, sketch #40:
Isn't it just an awesome sketch?
Here's my take on this sketch:
I used products from 7 Dots, Thoughts Keeper collection by the talented Olda Heldwein, that I got as a giveaway, thank you Tusia Lech for your generousity!
I used 12x12 pp no. 2, and papers from the 6x6 pad, stamps and stickers - all from that fab collection. and I would like to enter it to 7 Dots' challenge, which is 'Warm and Cosy, just like my youngest's photo, taken when he was just a baby. Here's the inspiration circle from the challenge:

I also used modeling paste with some Perfect Pearls over The Crafter's Workshop stencil, and some modeling paste over a doily stencil. 
To go along with the warm and cosy theme, I also adhered felt flowers, made with Die-Namics dies. StudioFourteen40' flairs, splatters of mists, dew drops, micro beads, large rhinestones, sequins and die-cut doily - and my lo is finished.
There's a lot of 3-D in this lo, so it also goes fot the 3-D challenge, exercise #2 at the Mixed Media Place.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Inspired by the sea

Case file # 148 is up at CSI, with gorgeous layouts by the Guest Designers and the DT. Here's case file #148:
And this is my take on it:
My clues to solve the case were:
Scheme - all colors are here. with the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio papers, it was so easy to match the papers with the right colors.
Evidence - flowers, branches, watercolors, tags, strings, pen work.
Testimony - I love the seaside very much. it calms down, inspire and I can spend hours by the sea. so this is what my journaling is all about. I wrote is in a kind of a recipe and used the IW inspiring.
I used the sketch and theme of this month's challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch:
I was also inspired by the current challenge at Scrap Around The World, with this beautiful inspiration moodboard:
I was inspired by the flowers photo, with some of the colors (yellow, pink, pale green and cream).
All pp, stickers and stamps are from 7 Dots Studio. Chipboard is from Creative Embellishments and the flairs are Studio40Fourteen's.
Here are some close ups on the details:
