A Flowery folder for Altair Art

Happy Saturday dear friends,
Today it's my turn at Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing a flowery folder I've made for a young lady, who just graduated high school.
I've used a great tutorial that you can find HERE .
I've made the cover quite flat, as I know she'll be taking it in her bag, so I didn't want the cover to get ruined.
Inside there's a place for a note pad, that can be replaced, as it attached with a bellyband.
On the other side, there's an envelope with an acordion fold, so it can be expended. the envelope is closed with magnets.

Here are some close-ups:

A trio cards for the Jewish New Year - for The Robin's Nest

Hello dear crafty friends,

Today it's my last post for The Robin's Nest, so it's a little bitter-sweet post.

Although the Jewish new year will be 3 months away, I started making my New Year cards. 
This time I've made a trio cards - all the same design, only different colors.
For each card I took dew drops in matching colors and placed them on the bottom of the mason jar die cut, as if there's sweets in the jar. One of the common blessing for the Jewish new year is 'A sweet year', so I thought it would be nice to place those 'sweets' in the jar.

Here're the cards, separately:

For all the cards' basis I've used a shimmer cardstock, and all the dp are Altair. I've decorated the 'mason jars' with coordinating dew drops and tied a baker's twine around the cups.

A blue birthday card for Altair Art

Hello dear crafty friends,  
I'd like to share with you a blue birthday card I've made with the oh so beautiful papers by Altair Art, for my turn on the blog.

I distressed the edges of the vanila paper and matted it on a white cardstock. I also ripped the paper in some places, and adhered some blue scraps to show out from the ripped paper.

Then I fussy cut the blue floral, and some green leaves and placed them on the vanilla pp, and added some doily pieces under the floral arrangement.

A sentiment of "Happy Birthday" (in Hebrew) was stampped on another scrap, matted again with a white cardstock, and my card is ready!

Here're some close-ups on the details:

I would like to enter it to the following challenges:

An exploding box with a hidden box - for Robin's Nest

Happy Monday dear crafty friends!

Today it's my turn on the Chattering Robin's blog, and I'm sharing an exploding box I've made for a 12 years girl, for her Bat Mitzva party.
It's actually a mini album, as each pannel has a pocket and in the inside it contains a mini mini album of itself.
In the inside there's also another box, a hidden one, for her to keep jewlery, trinkets and what ever her heart desire.
There's a lot of place for photos and journaling.
The pp I've used are DCWV Copper Luxury pad - beautiful feminine papers, some of them with copper foil.
I decorated the lids with Robin's Nest dew drops and tear drops, and I think they add such a beautiful touch to the lids.
Here are some close-ups:

I would like to enter this project to the following challenges:
Scor-pal - 'Pretty in Pink + more than one score
Studio 75 - Birthday
Art Piaskownica - Something for a woman
Summer Studio - moodboard #45
I was inspired by the colors of the green/teal and the peach.

Believe in Magic - CSI case file no. 255

Happy Friday dear crafty friends,
It's a new month so there's a new challenge at CSI - case file no. 255:
At first I was inspired by the girl's dress. It reminded me the Princess' dress at Disneyland Paris. We went there on April 2016.
I let my self be a little girl again, and I went to meet the princess :).
My clues to solve the case were: solid white background, stripes and dots (the stencil in the background), glitter, texture paste heat embossing (the chipboard title), people embellishments (the tags with the vintage ladies), stars (on the title).
I added my journaling on the circular part of the small doilies, and it says: "Being a little girl again, believing in Princesses and delighted to meet one of them. Disneyland Paris, April 2016".
I've used Maja Design papers, from the 'Vingage Autumn' collection.
Lots of mixed media here - 
Finnabair products: white and clear gesso, soft matte gel, heavy body gel, mini art stones, texture paste white.
Other products: Scrapiniec chipboard, I am Roses flowers, Kaisercraft stamps, TanySol doily die, Memnto Teal Zeel ink.

Here are some close-ups to the details:

I would like to enter it to the challenge at Mixed Media & Art, with this beautiful moodboard:
I really love this color combo!
Also for the 'Anything Goes challenge at SimonSays Wednesday challenge and the 'Stencil it' challenge at A vintage Journey blog (my layout is some shabby chic mixed media style)
