A classic wedding set/Klasičan svadbeni set

In Uncategorized on February 26, 2012 at 7:31 am

Hi everyone! Today I decided to post a classic wedding set I have made. It has an invitation (the text goes inside and it can be seen through the round window), a thank you card with a box (that also has a little window), and a round box that can be used as a gift for the guests (with cookies inside). For those little windows I used plastic (transparent) foil and I love the fact that one can decide to switch the invitation and the thank you card (if you do not have anything against round photos). :)

[Lijepi pozdrav svima! Danas sam odlučila postati klasični svadbeni set koji sam napravila. Sadrži pozivnicu (tekst se piše unutar karte i vidljiv je kroz prozorčić koji sam napravila), zahvalnicu s kutijom (također ima prozorčić) i okruglu kutiju koja se može koristiti kao poklon za goste (ako se napuni npr. kolačima). Za prozorčiće sam koristila prozirnu foliju koja se obično koristi za uvez i ono što mi se sviđa kod seta jeste da možete zahvalnicu odlučiti koristiti kao pozivnicu i obratno (ukoliko nemate ništa protiv okruglih fotografija).]

A card in a box/Čestitka u kutiji

I really have to go to bed. It is past midnight here and I have a full day tomorrow. I hope you like my card with a matching box (btw. it is a new box with a lid that my hubby designed for me). ;)

[Zaista moram na spavanje. Prošla je ponoć, a sutra sam cijeli dan u Muzungu kafiću (navratite ako ste u blizini). Nadam se da vam se sviđa ova čestitka s odgovarajućom kutijom (inače, to je nova kutija s poklopcem koju mi je moj dragi napravio). :)]

A vintage wedding set and a card/Starinski svadbeni set i čestitka

In Uncategorized on February 22, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Today I am finally sharing this vintage wedding set that I was making for a while. Recently I made a retro set for the Do!ts magazine, and that inspired me to make this set. I love those simple and usual wedding invitations, but often when I make them I am just not satisfied with them. So, I decided to spice the things up. :) First photo shows the invitation.

[Danas konačno postam svoj starinski svadbeni set koji sam radila ovih dana. Nedavno sam za Do!ts časopis napravila retro set, i to me ponukalo da napravim i ovaj. Volim one jednostavne i uobičajene pozivnice, no kad god sam ih radila jednostavno nisam bila zadovoljna s izgledom. Zato sam odlučila sve skupa malo "začiniti". :) Prva fotografija prikazuje pozivnicu.]

The second one is a thank you “card”. Actually, the thank you “card” is a set of frames and those frames go in the round box.

[Druga fotografija prikazuje zahvalnicu. Zahvalnica je zapravo set okvirića koji idu u ovu okruglu kutiju.]

I also made a piece of cake as a gift that can be given to the guests. I hope you like it. :)

[Također sam napravila i komad torte koji se gostima može dati kao poklon (radi se o kutijici u koju možete npr. staviti kolačiće). Nadam se da vam se sviđa. :)]

And this is how the whole set looks like. [A ovako izgleda cijeli set.]

At the end of my post I am sharing the card I made today. I like it since it is simple and sweet. :) Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I used [Koristila sam]: Caramel colored paper, ivory and white paper, lace, trim, ribbon, pearls, brown and golden gel pens, cotton cord, LOC stamps, Memento Tuxedo black ink, brown ink, Cuttlebug, Provo Craft embossing folderMartha Stewart circle cutter, Spellbinders, Sew Easy Tool.

I used [Koristila sam]: Caramel colored paper, paper doily, “Folia Paper” pink ink, ribbon, pearl, golden flower, Martha Stewart circle cutter, Sew Easy Tool, Teta Beta paper.

My cards with english sentiments/Moje karte s engleskim sentimentima

In Uncategorized on February 13, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Greetings from the snowy Croatia! Today I have two special cards. They have english sentiments and there is a good reason for that (usually I make cards with english sentiments just for magazine submissions). A couple of years ago me and my husband had the opportunity to meet a young girl named Brittney. We lived with her for a short time here in Croatia and she became a dear friend. After she went back home she got married and we were so happy for her. Then, after just a couple of months we found out that her hubby is seriously ill (for more information you can visit this web site). We pray for them and now we have also the opportunity to help in a different way. Her parents are organizing a craft fundraiser to help them with the costs of the upcoming treatments for her husband Dan. So, I decided to send my cards with the english sentiments (and the new ones I made these days). Please, take some time and consider to join in. You can send your projects till March 3rd to the following address: Mark Sutton, 29007 Stapleford, Spring TX 77386. I know they will appreciate it.

[Pozdravi iz snijegom zatrpanog Zapresica! Danas imam dvije posebne karte. Imaju engleske sentimente i za to postoji dobar razlog (takve karte obično radim samo za natječaje stranih časopisa). Prije nekoliko godina moj muž i ja imali smo prilike upoznati jednu mladu djevojku imenom Brittney. Živjeli smo s njom ovdje u Hrvatskoj jedno kratko vrijeme, te se tako sprijateljili. Nedugo nakon što se vratila kući udala se i mi smo bili sretni zbog toga. Ali, nakon svega nekoliko mjeseci saznali smo da je njen muž ozbiljno bolestan (za više informacija možete posjetiti ovu web stranicu). Molimo za njih i sada imamo priliku pomoći na još jedan način. Njeni roditelji prikupljaju razne rukotvorine koje će kasnije prodavati kako bi sakupili novac i pomogli ovom mladom paru s troškovima liječenja. Tako sam odlučila poslati im svoje karte s engleskim sentimentima (uključujući ove koje sam napravila u proteklim danima). Molim vas, razmislite možete li se uključiti u ovu akciju. Svoje rukotvorine možete poslati do 3. ožujka na sljedeću adresu: Mark Sutton, 29007 Stapleford, Spring TX 77386. Znam da će vam Dan i Brittney biti zahvalni.]
