It's all perspective - CSI case file no. 318

First Fav at Challenge YOUrself

It's a new month and that means a new files (challenges) at CSI.
The first one is Case file no. 318:
I went the traditional way: All 5 colors of the scheme are here. These colors are so fantastic together!
For the eviedence I used: wood background, polaroid frame, cameras and a clock.
My journaling, written  directly on the background, is of some of my thoughts this pereiod - how it is all perspective that makes one capble of going through crisis and harsh period in life, and how time changes our perspective.

I followed Laura Whitaker's April sketch for My creative Scrapbooking. I just love Laura's sketches!

It also goes for the current challenge at Challenge YOUrself, which asked of a b/w photo:

And for the new mixed media challenge at Splashy mix challenge 17:
I was inspired by the orange and yeallow colors.

Here're some close-ups on the details:



Lots of Prima Marketing flowers!

Use up those scraps! - two cards

We're nearly the end of April, and I'm almost done with my April Counterfeit kit. Although I used only one of the 12x12 pages, I used almost all the smaller papers and many of the embellishments (including my counterfeited ones!).
I run into two sketches which were just perfect to use more of my kit scraps, and made two cards.
The first card:
I rotated the sketch to the side, as I wanted to use this long 'thank you' die.
The circle is a handmade 'chipboard' that I was very happy to use here.
The second card:
Again, the circle is a handmade 'chipboard'.

Loooking again at the card, I might just add some black faux stitching to the edges of the pp.

Both cards go also for the 'All occasion' challenge at Krafty Chicks.

A birthday card with brush strokes - CAS(E) This Sketch meets Color Throwdown

Honorable mention

A great sketch with beautiful color combo is a perfect match for me, and this card was created with the inspiration of two great challenges.
Honorable mention 


CAS(E) This Sketch #369, with a retro sketch:
Well, it screamed to me - 'brush strokes'!, so I pulled out my new stamp set, and all I had to do is choose which brush stroke to choose. I went on the one with the unfinished edges.
The colors at Color Throwdown #590 were so so appealing, so springy:
I stamped the strokes on a white cs, added the sentiment and then adhered it on a kraft cs basis.
It also goes for the 'Birthday' challenge at The Spot #107:
I really love how this card turned out. What do you think?

A date display and a greeting card

A very good friend of mine got promotion at work, so I made her a date display, to put on her desk at work.
For making the date display, I followed Keren Skubach's tutorial. I added matting to the back of the display.

The papers are from WhiteRus 'Family' 6x6 pad.
I would like to enter it to the 'Anything goes' challenge at More Than One Score.
Having lots of pp scraps from this project, I also made a greeting card, to go along with the gift:
I followd sketch #551 at Tuesday Morning Sketches, which is so perfect for using all those scraps:
The sentiment is Kaisercraft's stamp.

Just for you - Color Throwdown meets CAS(E) This Sketch

Red, gray, black & white color combo is a very elegant one. It can be very dramatic, but also can be used for a very delicate style.
Color Throwdown #589 has this wonderful colors for their challenge:
I combined it with a CAS and elegant sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch #368:
I find that the bold red  flowers against the white background and the gray vases - makes this card very elegant.

It's a girl! - a cas card

This card was so quick to make, and I love how it turned out! 
Again I used my April Counterfeit kit to make it, with a little addition of the Carta Bella stickers.
I followed two challenges:

The 2nd challenge - TGIF #260, with a sketch and a belly band:
I only added a few enamel dots, and my card is done!
