Blog giveaways

I just entered 2 blog giveaways today - both for scrapbooking items. :D It's pretty hard to get scrapbooking stuff where I live so pretty much all the scrapbooking stuff that I have were sent to me by my sweet friends from around the world or I swapped for them. Today I was killing some time on the internet and I found out about those giveaways. And I thought: "Oh, I wanna try my luck too." Why not, right? Both blogs are also full of great craft ideas, so I think you really should check them out. :)

The first giveaway is held by Beth - click here to get to her blog. She made such a great giveaway package that I am sure every crafter would love to have. Thank you Beth for doing this! :) I have only been following her blog for a short while, but I really like it. I think her crafts are really amazing and she also posts weekly tutorials on her blog. Isn't that great?! You really should have a look at her blog if you haven't already.

The second giveaway can be found here. Aren't the items you can win just amazing? Just imagine all the things you could do with with those papers etc. I already have tons of ideas. lol

If you want to enter these giveaways too, great. But if not, just pay a visit to these blogs and maybe you'll find some ideas for your next craft project. :)

Happy holidays!

It's Christmas eve tonight. I hope you've all been good this year so that when you wake up tomorrow morning you'll find lots of presents under the Christmas tree. ;) Have a nice evening, surrounded with your loved ones. I wish you a merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May the year 2011 be full of love, joy, happiness and little miracles. Leave yesterday's worries behind and focus on what's in front of you. As they say: "Give each day the chance to be the best day of your life." Happy holidays!

Cards again ;)

Here are some more Christmas cards that I made this year. I used different techniques and different materials. I fell in love with the cute little angels and made quite some cards with them (bellow you can see pictures of two of them). The pattern for this little angel I found on my friend's blog. She's very creative and she made different patterns that she uploaded to her blog so everybody who wants them can download them for free. The pattern for the angel I used for my cards can be found here, but feel free to look at her other entries too. Visit her blog by clicking here.

And here are the promised pictures of the cards I made (for larger view click on the picture) …

The two angel cards (the quality if one picture isn't the best, I'm sorry about that)
Cards with cookie recipes – I printed the recipe for cookies and placed it on the card. I decorated the cards with ginger men/candy cane and matching paper.
I had a couple sheets of Christmas paper and I cut out the pictures and made cards with them. Here are the results …
Let it shine … Here are two of the shiny/sparkly cards I made this year.
And some other cards.
