2011 - a year in review

2011 have come to it's end and 2012 have started. I've had a very creative year - 139 layouts, 37 cards, 12 mini albums (13 if I caount the latest, which I completed but haven't poste yet), 7 other projects and 5 step-by-step tutorials.
I love looking back and see what I've made - it gives me an opporuity to see how my work evolved, what do I like more, what I'd like to change.
I think one of the most important changes that happened to my scrapping was making more and more CAS designs (layouts and cards).
Anyway, I tried to narrow my choises, and it was quite hard... LOL So here are my 2011 fav works:

'Snow all over my city' - love the subtle colors and the warm feeling in contrast of the snowy theme.
'Me & My Friend' - love the naive look, with the CAS design.
'A day at the zoo' exploding box - love, love, love this kind of projects, and I've made a tutorial how to make it (check 'my tutorial' page).
Blue sea, white mountain' mini album - love the grungy look, the use of corrugated cardboard and paint.


'We'll allways have Paris' mini album - love the vintage design, the embellies, and it is dear to me cause I've lost all the photos from that fab vacation, so I'm so happy I have this mini album to capture those moments.

I didn't make anything new...

Joker - love the use of the green felt and the playing card, and how the whole design matches the photo.

'A Family Matter' mini album - love the cheerful design, the mini mini albums that inside, that holds so many photos on one mini album.

Cool! - love the colors and the circles.
'You're not that beauty when you cry' - love the vingage look, the cork embelliesh, the monochromatic.
love the elegant look and the bows on the ribbon.

'Bikkurim' - love the vintage, the crocheted frame, the white background.

'Up!' - love the colors, the handmade embellies, the altered chipboard alphas.

'Life is Beautiful' mini album - love the vintage look, the rich embellies, the BoBunny papers, and mostly - the therapeutic process about 2nd Lebanon's war trauma. 

'Motorcycle' - love the use of the small photo in the film strip stamp, the can lids' flower (which I've made a 'how to' turorial).
'Hanging around together' - love the CAS design (and the photo :))...)
'Vacation in Alania' - love the colors (and I don't do yellow usually!), the CAS design, the stitching.

'The big sea 2005' - love the CAS design, the doilies with the dp on them, the buttons flowers.
'Pose!' - love the masking, the colors, the vintage design.
'A perfect day is...' - love the vintage look, the colors and the embellies.

Two vintage cards, very different one from each other. love them both for the vintage design and the colors of each one of them.
Altered boxes - love the papers and the color combo, but especially I love the fact that I've made it all for me...

'4th grade' - love the colros and the graphic design (note to myself - should try more of this style in the future).
'Sweet memories' - love the colors, the masking and stamping, the vintage look.
Happy New Year card - love the use of scraps, the doily and the colors.

'True Beauty' - love the colors, the masking, the tearing, the bling.
Joy - love the rolled flowers, the colors, the altered chopboard alphas and the circle frame.
'You & Me' - love the vintage look, the fussy cutting, the dark background which makes the photo pop.

Tickles - love the colors, the corrugated cardboard, the masking.
'The sand & the sea' - love the color combo, the vingage look, the brackets cut, the accordion flower.
'For you' card - again, love the color combo, the tearing and the accordion flower.
A birtthday card - love the colors and the elegant look.
Winter 2011-12 mini album - love the colors, the painting and stamping, and the recycling.

'Big Smiles' - love the hand made flowers, the unsual (for me) color combo, the vintage frame, the masking.
'Water Fight' - love the colors, the muli-photos (I don't usually), the can lids' flower, the bubblewrap stamping, the painting over the kraft paper, the felt clouds.
A round gift box - love the colors, the vintage look, the flowers.

Well, that was 2011... Welcome 2012!!! Happy New Year to all.

סיכום של שנה בעשייה סקראפית. היה קשה לצמצם את הבחירה....
מקווה לשנה לא פחות יצירתית ב-2012....
