Being a guest again/Ponovo u gostima

Today I am sharing the project I did for myself. I do not think that I ever made something for me. Yes, I am pretty sure I did not. I usually make cards and then I give them away or sell them. So, here is the thing I made for myself. Recently my hubby gave me this black note-book and I decided to decorate it a little bit. These days I was feeling sick, so I had the time to think about all those great challenges over at the Moxie Fab World blog. Because of that, my Cuttlebug had to “swallow” a lot of strange things. For example: some lace, trim, doilies, fabric, and at the end, the embossed pattern that I liked the most was the one I got when I put the grosgrain ribbon in my machine. 🙂 That is how I made the embossed pattern for my notebook (sorry, but the camera is not that good and does not show all the details a grosgrain ribbon leaves). And, I used some stamps, pearls and ribbon to make it more interesting. 🙂 If you would like to see some more beautiful projects, go check them at the Moxie Fab World blog, and while you are there, you can meet their new Moxie Fabber of the Week. 😉 Now that I can finally share, I can just say how surprised I was when I got that email last year, and how thankful I am for this new experience.

[Danas postam projekt koji sam učinila za sebe. Ne znam jesam li ikad nešto zapravo napravila za sebe. Da, poprilično sam sigurna da nisam. Obično radim karte koje poklonim ili prodam. Stoga, evo nešto što je samo za mene. Nedavno mi je muž poklonio ovaj crni blokić, a ja sam odlučila malo ga ukrasiti. Ovih sam dana bila nešto boležljiva, pa sam imala vremena razmisliti o svim onim super izazovima na Moxie Fab World blogu. Iz tog razloga, kroz moj Cuttlebug prošlo je dosta čudnih stvari, kao na primjer: čipke, trimovi, tkanina… i na kraju najviše mi se svidio utisnuti uzorak koji je ostavila traka nakon što sam ju s papirom provela kroz Cuttlebug. Tako sam napravila utisnuti uzorak za svoj blokić (oprostite, jednostavno nisam mogla dobiti fotografiju koja pokazuje sitne utisnute detalje koje ostavlja ova iscrtkana traka). Na kraju sam sve začinila s pokojim štambiljem, biserima i trakom kako bi sve bilo još zanimljivije. 🙂 Ako želite vidjeti ostale prekrasne projekte, navratite na Moxie Fab World blog, i dok ste tamo možete upoznati novu Moxie Fabber-icu tjedna. 😉 Sada kada konačno smijem to podijeliti s vama, mogu reći koliko sam bila iznenađena kad sam prošle godine dobila email poziva i koliko sam zaista zahvalna za ovo novo iskustvo.]

Inspired by [Inspirirano]: Love my Tapes, Moxie Fab World Embossing and Debossing Challenge.
