Frosted designs: non traditional holiday layout.

Good morning all, 

It's Channa here to host the Friday challenge this week. 
It's the happy holidays month and it's the month full of happiness. 

The challenge is : Make a holiday layout, that can be a Christmas layout, Hannukah or what you may celebrate this month without using the colors Red or Green. So you are not allowed to use these colors. 

I made a layout using blue and white:

I created this layout using paper from the 7 dots, cold country collection. I used a picture of our christmas tree. I love this time of the year!! All the lovely decorations that make our homes so cosy and warm. 

On the close up pictures you can see all the little details on my layout and the embellishments that i used. 

thank you all for stopping by and enjoy your weekend,

Frosted Designs Gift of Giving Blog Hop!!!!

Hello there fellow crafters!!!  

Welcome to our "Gift of Giving" Blog Hop!

With the holiday season lurking just around the corner, we decided to give our members some ideas for fabulous handmade items that can be gifted this year!  Our Design Team has been working really hard so sit back and enjoy the show as you "hop" along with us!

For this blog hop i used modeling paste as my product from the store. I love using it and you can use it in many ways. I made a nice jewellry box for my friend as she gave me a wonderful baby shower. The only problem is ....that i did not make a picture of the ending result.........sorry it must have been my pregnancy brain. 

But i will show you a few pics of how i used the modeling past:

I used a heart shaped box, which i decorated with paper from 7 dots, 
cold country collection. 
I added a stencil on top of the box and used the modeling paste. 
Let it dry overnight. 

After i let it dry i added some dylusion ink in order to give it some 
dimension and color. 

As you hop along, you will notice each Design Team member has a "secret" word on their blog that makes a quote.  Be sure to write it down and with your completed quote!  

My secret word is: THAN.

Scrap africa: Sketch challenge - Mrs. Melon

Good morning all, 

It's saturday the 1st of November, in 2 months the year will be over again.....
Time really flies.......... days are getting shorter and it's getting a little chilly outside. 
So perfect craft weather in my eyes!

Today we have a sketch challenge for you at Scrap africa:

And this is my take:

I used a picture of my little friend danique, who for some reason has a melon on her head. 
Up to know i dont know why.............but it looks great and she is still so pretty. 

It's a pretty straight forward girl layout, pink pink and pink. 

So join us for the next two weeks at Scrap Africa!! 
Thank you for stopping by and i wish you a great weekend. 

Kisses, Channa

layered card. 

Here are some close ups:

Good morning all, 

Another challenge at Frosted designs!

Make a fall layout with fall colors, ink and bling. 

This is my take on the challenge:

I love making fall layouts as the colors are just amazing, really striking colors. 

Fall colors i used are: red, orange, green and brown. 
Ink - different stamps
bling:  glitter over the whole layout ( gold, but you can only see it in real life) and the little dots. 

Items used from the FD shop is the Nature walk collection of 7 Dots. 

Thank you all for passing by and have a great weekend.

List it - Scrap africa

Good afternoon all, 

Most of my regular readers must have noticed that i have been completely of the charts this year.......
Which is true and i do appologize for that, it's been some year. 
But as of today i have one month to go as i am having a baby boy. 
The beginning was awful, morning sickness etc... but i got over it and have enjoyed every little step. 

So as a challenge today at scrap africa is to make a project ( card, LO or OTP) with a list, your list needs to have a min. of ten things to do. 

So this is my take on the challenge:

As a mom to be there can be a lot of items on that "to do"list so most of it is done. 
The only thing that needs to be done is iron my pyamas for the hospital and make my suitcase, i will do that tomorrow or friday. 

The nursery is ready, as a creative mom i have made several items like the lining of our mozes basket, i made sheets, made a mobile for the crib, made bibs and the list goes on and on.......

Our little one will be tall like his father or otherwise it will be a chubby little one as he is 3 kilo's at the moment. My due date is on the 15th of november.... so lets see if he will come sooner or later. 

I have hidden my to do list! it is a pull out tag ( where the flower is located)
i have worked ahead with all my dt teams so i should be fine... i might be offline for a while but i will be back in 2015. 
thank you all for passing by and good luck  with this challenge!

Kisses, channa

Aloha with Scrap africa

Good Evening all, 

It's the first of October and here in Greece they say "Kalo Mina" which means have a good month!
Where does the time go....3 months more and 2014 is over??

Its time for a new sketch at scrap africa:

This sketch was telling me Aloha and Hang loose. 
So i made a card with an HawaiĆ­an tilda. 

It turned out to be a very colorful card with several layers. 

Well here in Greece the summer is slowly fading away. 
For me personally a lot better and comfortable. 

thank you for passing by, pop over to the Scrap Africa blog to get some inspiration. 

Have a good evening!
