Polkadot Door Designs Inspirational Blog Hop #4

In Uncategorized on August 5, 2011 at 6:31 am

Welcome to the Polkadot Door Designs Inspirational Blog Hop #4! I am honored by the invitation I recently got from the Polkadot Door Design Team to be one of the guest designers for the month of August. For some of you that may not know what is it about, here are two basic informations: you can visit the links of the rest of the team (Blog hop list at the end of this section), be inspired, have fun on the way, and leave comments to be eligible for a certain prize. You can also join in on the challenge, make a project inspired by their photo, and link it at the Polkadot Door Designs Blog. This is the inspirational photo. You can use all the elements or just one to make your project.

Dobrodošli na Polkadot Door Designs insiracijski blog hop broj 4! Počašćena sam pozivom kojeg sam nedavno dobila od Polkadot Door Desing tima da im se pridružim kao gost dizajner u kolovozu. Za sve one koji nisu sigurni o čemu se radi, evo dvije osnovne informacije: možete posjetiti blogove ostatka ekipe (Blog hop lista na kraju ovog dijela posta), naći inspiraciju, zabaviti se i ostaviti svoje komentare kako biste bili u igri za nagradu. Također se možete pridružiti u natjecanju, tj. napraviti neki projekt na temelju ove fotografije i prikazati ga na Polkadot Door Design blogu. A ovo dolje je zadana fotografija. Možete koristiti sve elemente sa fotografiji ili samo jedan.

And, these are the card and the bag that I made./A ovo je moja karta i vrećica koju sam napravila.


I made the frames with a Spellbinders Die, did some inking and embossing, made the flowers and added some pearls and a button. The Quote is in Croatian and its translation says: “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” (C. S. Lewis)

Okvire sam napravila uz pomoć Spellbinders nožića, malo sam bojala tintama i embosala okvire, napravila sam cvijeće, te dodala bisere i gumbić. Citat sam preuzela od poznatog pisca, C. S. Lewisa koji kaže: “Nikada nisi prestar da bi postavio drugi cilj ili snivao novi san.”

And now, let me just give you a couple of informations about the sponsors for the month of August:

Pork Chop Show will be providing the prize for the Challenge winner, which is 3 sets of wooden cut-out embellishments. Live the Chaos is giving away a gift certificate for their shop and a mini stamp to the blog hop winner. Duetica is providing a HUGE give-away for the featured designer. The prize consists of their innovative software for creative fonts and fonts valued at $38.

A sada, dozvolite mi reči par riječi o sponzorima ovog mjeseca:

Pork Chop Show će darivati pobjednicu natjecanja, s 3 seta drvenih ukrasa. Live the Chaos će blog hop pobjednici darovati mini štambilj i poklon bon njihove trgovine. Duetica daje OGROMNU nagradu dizajnerici koja pobijedi. Nagrada se sastoji od fontova i inovativnog programa za kreativne fontove u vrijednosti od 38$.

Before I leave you and start my working day, I am also sharing my second project with you. It is a card based on a couple of challenges. I made four different patterned papers, and used this card for my inspiration (I love the cards this lady makes). I wanted to get this old and distress look, and to use a big flower for this card.

Prije nego odem i započnem svoj radni dan, postam i drugu kartu. Napravljena je na temelju nekoliko natječaja. Uz pomoć četiri štambilja napravila sam četiri različita papira s uzorkom, i koristila sam ovu kartu kao inspiraciju (volim pratiti rad ove dame). Željela sam postići ovaj stari i ofucani izgled, te koristiti veliki cvijet. 

Challenges/Natjecanja: Mojo Monday, Colour Q, Case Study, The Shabby Tea Room.
