Cherish every day

Lindy's Gang gave a beautiful color combo this month (as always...):
These colors give room to so many options, and this time I went on a soft feminine version. I love the contrast between the soft, pale colors to the bold tera cotta color of the leaves.
I started by stamping here and there on the background. Next I used embossing ink with a stencil and heat embossed it with a white ep.
I stamped two flowers with a gray ink, and one with embossing ink and heat embossed with a pale pink ep. For all the 3 flowers I outlined the petals with a black pen and adhered micro beads in the center.
I stamped and heat embossed leaves with a dark red-brown ep and cut them out.
The others leaves were cut with a die and colored with a Lindy's spray.
The edges of the paper were distressed, using a distressing tool and distress ink
I glued the lace petals with a gel medium and then gathered all the elements.
Splatters here and there, using Lindy's shaker and adding the sentiment.

Lindy's products I've used:
Shaker - Aged Copper

Other products:
Paper - Piatek 13 Love in Bloom 6x6 paper pad.
Inks - Ranger's Emboss It clear ink; Ranger's shadow grey archival ink; VersaFine Smokey Gray; Ranger's TH tattered rose distress ink.
Stencil - Stampersannonymous TH layering stencil mini set no. 30.
Stamp - 49 and Market Pascale's Gramer.
Medium gel - Prima Finnabair soft matte gel.

Summer 2019 - CSI case file no. 288 reveal

Warm July is already here, and we have a summer theme inspiration for you at CSI, with case file no. 288:
Isn't it just a yummy inspiration image?
I scrapped without a photo, only documenting our plans for this summer. it's the first time I scrap in real time and not about something that already happened.
I used all 5 colors and for the evidence I used: ice cream themed elements, circular elements, triangles, labels, sprinkle (embossing powder, sprays, sequins), bows and numbers.
I was inspired by the inspiration word 'Great", and placed my journaling on labels.
I used a mixed media tag I've made a while ago, and backed it with another tag, colored with brown mist and with a patterned paper with triangles.
For the background I stamped with 7 Dots Studio stamp and used Lindy's sprays in coordinating colors for the splatters.
The leaves and the doily were also colored with Lindy's spray in pink.

Shana Tova cards for charity

Rosh Hashanah is 3 months ahead, and I've started making greeting cards. There's a great initiative on a local FB group to make charity greeting cards for an elderly people, holocaust survivers, and I decided to join the project.
I've used my June Counterfeit Kit, and this project is 'a killing kit' project :).

I've already made 14 cards, and I intend to make more in the next 2 months (till the project reaches it's dead line).
It feels so good to know that these cards will make people happy.
Actually, I've used most of my kit and it makes me so happy! There's another layout I've made using this kit, but you'll have to wait till July 1st to see it. Meanwhile I can share a sneak peek:

Live, laugh, love - a midori style traveler's notebook

For a while I've been wanting to make myself a midori style traveler's notebook, and our coming vacation was the trigger to do it. 
I've used my June Counterfeit Kit for it, mixing all kinds of papers, note cards and embellies. For the cover I used a thin foam and adhered a pp to it. 
I've made two mini notebooks as inserets - one for the planning of the vacation and one to document it.
One notebook was binded with staples, while the other one by sewing. I prefer the staples as binding.
I used elastic cord for the spine and to close the whole TN.
Here're photos of the inside:

A notebook pad folder

  Here's another project I've made using my June Counterfeit Kit - a notebook pad folder for a co-worker friend. 
I used Yael's tutorial, which you can fine HERE.
There's a dimensional envelope on one side, and a A5 notepad on the other side. 
In the envelope, I enclosed some cards with cute sentiments, and some washi tape pages.

#Summer - CSI case file no. 285

This is my take on case file 285 at CSI, with this inspiration photo:
At the begining, I didn't like the photo and the colors, but then I thought I'd give it a try, using my June Counterfeit Kit, and voila! 
This is how I solved the case: I used all 5 colors (that was the real challenge!). For the evidence - stripes, flowers, trees, sun, a bird, feathers, wet medium, camera, vellum, a bow and buttons. I documented our visit to the kangaroo park years ago.
I use Laura Whitaker's fab sketch from My Creative Scrapbook:
Along using my kit, I added the oval frame and the hashtag title - chipboards from Creative Embellishments.
I covered them both with white gesso. For the frame I used Lindy's spray Fuzzy Navel Peach 3 times, and then I inked here and there with Ranger's embossing ink and used Lindy's ep - Byzantine Bronze. The title was heat embossed with Lindy's Sunset Yellow Orange ep.
I also used Lindy's Frosty Forest Green spray to splatter here and there.
Here're some close-ups on the details:

I would like to enter it also for June challenge at Creative Embellishments:
I was inspired by most of the colors in the image, the summer atmosphere and the sun.

An exploding box for a wedding, with 5 mini albums

I've made an exploding box, with 5 mini albums inside, as a gift for a friend, who's son got married.
It's a very big exploding box, 5"x5"x5", so you don't make it from one 12x12 cardstock! I used Yael's tutorial, which you can find HERE, with some small changes.
The papers are from Piatek 13, 'Love in Bloom' collection. I've used mainly the 6x6 pad, but also some 12x12 papers.
Each mini album is different in design.
All in all, this box can hold 60 photos and more, sized 4"x4".
Here are the photos of the inside content:
The lid:
Open, with the 5 mini albums:
1 st mini album:
2nd mini album, it's a mini book:
3rd mini album, an accordion mini album:
4th mini album:
