A workshop with friends/Radionica s prijateljicama

In Uncategorized on June 30, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Hello! Today I did not made any card. But, I had some friends over and we had a small workshop. It was fun. Take a look at those lovely projects girls have made.

[Lijepi pozdrav! Danas nisam napravila kartu, ali sam zato ugostila nekoliko prijateljica i održali smo malu radionicu. Bilo je zabavno. Pogledajte kako je bilo i uživajte u njihovim radovima. Za kraj imam jednu važnu obavijest. Odlučila sam dati i drugima priliku da me upoznaju i uživaju u izradi sličnih stvarčica. Stoga, sljedeća radionica u Zaprešiću biti će organizirana za dame mojih godina i starije (to bi bilo oko 30 godina i dalje 😉 ) 14. srpnja u 18h. Ukoliko ste zainteresirani i želite više informacija, pišite mi na tetabetacraft@gmail.com Radionica je besplatna, no svaka je donacija za materijal uvijek dobrodošla. Broj polaznika je ograničen stoga vas molim da se što prije javite ukoliko imate interes za ovu radionicu. Vidimo se sutra! 🙂]

Upcoming workshop/Nadolazeća radionica

In Uncategorized on June 26, 2012 at 12:18 am

Well, good morning people! I am making a quick post to announce my workshop I will have on Friday. We will be making some boxes and matching cards, and learning different ways one can make flowers. So, that is why I have made this little box, some flowers and my card. I decided to create flowers using Spellbinders Labels 24. The inspiration for the colors came from the CR84FN Challenge.

[Dobro jutro svima! Brzinski postam ovu kartu kako bih najavila radionicu koja će biti održana u petak u Megacolor trgovini u Zagrebu. Raditi ćemo kutije s odgovarajućim kartama. Istodobno ćemo učiti nekoliko raznih načina kako možemo napraviti razno cvijeće. Svoju današnju kutiju i kartu ukrasila sam cvijećem napravljenim uz pomoć Spellbinders nožića (Labels 24). Inspiraciju za boje uzela sam sa CR84FN izazova. Ukoliko trebate detalje za radionicu ili se želite prijaviti, posjetite web stranicu Megacolor trgovine. :)]

A great Sunday

In Uncategorized on June 24, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Hello! I had a great Sunday! We went to church (my hubby gave such a good sermon), hosted a Bible study later in our house and now we have guests. Actually, my hubby has some guests – a couple of guys gathered around the table doing some guy stuff. 🙂 And I, well, I have some time for making cards that people ordered, for some projects I have to finish and maybe some cards for submission calls. In between I am designing some new stamp sets. As you can see, I am never board. 🙂

The card I made is and is not so simple. It looks somehow simple, but I did a lot of things to it. First I embossed the base of the card, cut the blue piece (using Spellbinders Labels 23) and stamped it with Waltzingmouse Stamp (Dainty Dollies 2, my favorite WM set) and Versa Mark. Then I cut a grey piece of “Aunt Betty” paper, did some sewing, added come lace, ribbon, cotton cord and a button.

I hope you like it. It is inspired by Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and Case Study Challenge (colors). Thank you for stopping by today.

A Simple Birthday Card/Jednostavna rođendanska karta

In Uncategorized on June 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Hello there! The Craft’s Meow June Release Blog Hop is still going on and if you had not the chance to see those new stamp sets you can click here.
[Lijepi pozdrav! The Craft’s Meow lipanjski blog hop povodom novih štambilja je još uvijek u tijeku. Ako niste imali prilike vidjeti te nove štambilje kliknite ovdje.]

Today I have made a simple card using my papers (Aunt Betty), The Craft’s Meow Lovely Labels 14 (the first set I made for them) and my sentiment stamp in Croatian (it says Happy Birthday). These Labels stamps are compatible with Spellbinders Labels 14.
[Danas sam napravila jednostavnu kartu koristeći Teta Beta papire, The Craft’s Meow Lovely Labels 14 koji sam za njih napravila i Teta Beta štambilje. TCM štambilji su kompatibilni sa Spellbindersovim rezalicama pod imenom Labels 14.]

For my card I used these two Challenges as an inspiration: Cas-ual Fridays, Run Way Inspired Challenges.
[Kao inspiraciju za moju kartu koristila sam ova dva natjecanja: Cas-ual Fridays, Run Way Inspired izazovi. ]

At the end of my post I would like to thank you all for being so nice leaving all those comments and to all the ladies that made so many beautiful cards with my stamps. I still have problems with my Internet connection and because of that I did not have the time to leave comments on your blogs. Once again, thank you so much!
[Na kraju ovog posta želim vam se svima zahvaliti što ste ostavljali komentare i svim damama koje su napravile sve te lijepe karte sa štambiljima koje sam napravila. Budući da još uvijek imam poteškoća s internet pristupom nisam imala vremena posjetiti blogove i osobno vam zahvaliti. Još jednom, od srca hvala za svu podršku.]

Welcome to The Craft’s Meow June Release Blog Hop. In the past days the design team, the illustrators and June guest designers: Larissa Heskett & Gayatri Murali created many beautiful projects with the new TCM stamps and today you can finally see the whole sets we were all having fun with.

[Dobrodošli na TCM blog hop povodom objavljivanja novih štambilja. Proteklih su dana dame iz dizajnerske ekipe, ilustratori i dvije gošće napravile prekrasne projekte koristeći nove TCM štambilje, a danas konačno možete vidjeti cijele setove.]

For my today’s card I used “Lovely Labels 14” and “God’s Blessings” stamp sets.

[Za moju današnju kartu koristila sam “Lovely Labels 14” i “God’s Blessings” setove.]

I had fun stamping with the “Lovely Labels 14” so I also created these two tags. [Uživala sam u “Lovely labels 14” setu pa sam napravila i ove dvije etikete.]

To see all the new sets you can visit The Craft’s Meow Blog. With a $50 purchase you will get a “Summer Fun” stamp set for free. And, to be eligible for a big prize (all 6 new sets) you need to visit and comment on each blog on the hop. The deadline for comments is 9:00 pm PDT, Sunday, June 23rd.

The Craft’s Meow June Release – day four

In Uncategorized on June 20, 2012 at 4:00 am

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of The Craft’s Meow new release week. We have two sets for you today: “Oh Deer” and “Summer Fun”. The design team, the illustrators and June guest designers: Larissa Heskett & Gayatri Murali created some great projects so make sure you visit their blogs and leave them some love. The entire list you can find on TCM blog.

[Dobrodošli na četvrto prikazivanje The Craft’s Meow štambilja ovaj tjedan. Danas predstavljamo dva seta: “Oh Deer” i “Summer Fun”. Dizajnerska ekipa, ilustratori i naše dvije gošće napravile su krasne karte, stoga predlažem da posjetite njihove blogove i usrećite ih svojim komentarima. Popis svih sudionika možete naći na TCM blogu.]

Using the “Oh Deer” set I have made a simple and cute card. I stamped and colored the Deer and stamped, colored and cut out the butterflies.

[Koristeći “Oh Deer” set napravila sam ovu jednostavnu i slatku kartu. Otisnula sam štambilj srne te ju obojala. Leptiriće sam izrezala nakon što sam ih obojala.]

In the “Summer Fun” set I liked this big sentiment so much that I just decided to create a card with an english sentiment (something I do not do so often). An important information about this set is that it is a June Gift with all $50 purchases.

[U “Summer Fun” setu mi se toliko svidio ovaj veliki sentiment da sam jednostavno odlučila napraviti kartu s engleskim sentimentom (nešto što ne radim baš često). Ovdje je važno napomenuti da je ovaj set u lipnju poklon ukoliko vaša narudžba bude veća od 50$.]

Today you can also leave your comments at the TCM blog. Two winners will be chosen for each set. The deadline is 9:00 pm PDT each day. Thank you for all you support. 🙂

[I danas možete ostaviti svoje komentare na TCM blogu ukoliko želite osvojiti jedan od ova dva seta. Rok je 9:00 pm PDT svakog dana. Hvala za pordšku. 🙂]

The Craft’s Meow June Release – day three

In Uncategorized on June 19, 2012 at 4:00 am

Hello there! It is the third day of The Craft’s Meow new release week.

Today we have cards for you which we created with the “Lovely Labels 14” set. Those are one of my favorite Spellbinders Labels. I love them and love to use stamps for them. Each day the design team, the illustrators and June guest designers: Larissa Heskett & Gayatri Murali created so many beautiful projects, and same goes for today.

[Lijepi pozdrav! Treći je dan predstavljanja novih TCM štambilja. Danas smo radili karte sa “Lovely Labels 14” setom. Taj set odgovara Spellbindersovim nožićima i to je jedan od mojih najomiljenijih oblika. Svaki su dan djevojke iz dizajnerske ekipe, ilustratori i dvije gošće, Larissa Heskett i Gayatri Murali, napravile lijepe karte. Isto vrijedi i za danas.]

I will not tell you much about the set since it is mine. Somehow it is too embarrassing for me to tell you how cute this set is. 🙂 But, what I can tell you is that all my profit of the selling goes towards a non-profit organization called “The Traveler”. More about it you can read here, and in case you have any questions you can write me an email.

[Neću vam puno govoriti o ovom setu jer je moj. Nekako mi je previše neugodno reći vam kako je sladak ovaj set. 🙂 No, ono što vam mogu reći jeste da sav profit od prodaje odlazi neprofitnoj udruzi Putnik. Više o Putniku možete pročitati ovdje, a ako imate ikakvih pitanja možete mi napisati email.]

My card is inspired by a photo from a Jay Gee’s Nook Challenge.

[Moja je karta inspirirana fotografijom sa Jay Gee’s Nook izazova.]

Thank you for stopping by today. As always, you can leave your comments at the TCM blog and win today’s set. The deadline is 9:00 pm PDT each day.

[Hvala vam za vašu posjetu. Kao i uvijek, možete ostaviti komentar na TCM blogu i osvojiti današnji set. Rok je 9:00 pm PDT svakog dana.]

The Craft’s Meow June Release – day two

In Uncategorized on June 18, 2012 at 4:00 am

Hi! It is the second day of The Craft’s Meow new release week. I hope you had fun yesterday and that you will also enjoy the second stamp set that we have. Actually, today we have two great sets and a group of dear ladies (the design team, the illustrators and June guest designers: Larissa Heskett & Gayatri Murali) will show you what they made with them.

[Lijepi pozdrav! Drugi je dan od kako prikazujemo nove Craft’s Meow štambilje. Nadam se da ste jučer uživali, te da ćete uživati i u drugom setu kojeg imamo za vas. Točnije, danas predstavljamo dva divna seta, a nekoliko dama (dizajnerska ekipa, ilustratori i dvije gošće: Larissa Heskett i Gayatri Murali) će i danas pokazati što su s njima napravile.]

Today we are all using “Stitched Flowers” and “Stitched Sentiments” sets. The flowers are cute and great for coloring or for paper piecing. And, since I do not use English sentiments so often, I decided to create my patterned paper with the “Stitched Sentiments” set.

[Danas svi koristimo “Stitched Flowers” i “Stitched Sentiments”. Cvjetići su slatki i super za nekoliko tehnika kao što je bojanje i tzv. ‘paper piecing’ tehnika. Budući da ne koristim tako često engleske sentimente, odlučila sam od ovih sentimenata napraviti uzorak na papiru.]

It was so good to color those flowers. You can leave your comments at the TCM blog and two winners will be chosen for each of today’s sets. The deadline is 9:00 pm PDT each day.

[Baš je bilo super bojati ove cvjetiće. I danas možete ostaviti svoj komentar na TCM blogu. Dva će dobitnika dobiti po jedan od danas prikazanih setova. Rok je 9:00 pm PDT svakog dana.]

Thank you for stopping by today and for all your support and love you leave here. Make sure you come back tomorrow too. We will show the cards created with my very first stamp set which I designed for TCM.

[Hvala vam da ste i danas navratili. Zahvalna sam za vašu podršku i ljubav koju mi ostavljate svojim komentarima. Navratite i sutra. Na redu je set koji sam osobno napravila za TCM.]

P.S.

[Dobitnica ovog darivanja je ‘Badkittys’. Javite se emailom pa da vam pošaljem vašu nagradu.]

The Craft’s Meow new release – day one

In Uncategorized on June 17, 2012 at 4:00 am

Hello everyone! Today I have a special post. I have a great honor to be a part of The Craft’s Meow new release week.

[Lijepi pozdrav! Danas imam poseban post. Velika mi je čast biti dio The Craft’s Meow tjedna povodom objave novih štambilja.]

The Craft’s Meow has some new stamps for you and a group of dear ladies (the design team, the illustrators and June guest designers: Larissa Heskett & Gayatri Murali) will show you what they made with them. Today we are all using “God’s Blessings” set. It is a very nice and practical set. I used the cross and the swirl to create a simple masculine set of cards. Often I use Croatian sentiments on my cards, and that was the case here too. This strange writing in the middle of my ovals are Bible verses in Croatian.

[The Craft’s Meow ima neke nove štambilje i njihova ekipa će vam (design team, ilustratori i dvije gošće: Larissa Hesket i Gayatri Murali) pokazati što su sve s njima napravile. Danas smo svi koristili set pod imenom “God’s Blessings”. To je jedan lijep i praktičan set. Za svoje karte sam koristila križ i ukras. Napravila sam set čestitaka s biblijskim stihovima za muškarce.]

I had fun with these new stamps and you will see them again on my projects during this week. Now, as you probably already know, there are some prizes you can win. Today you can win “God’s Blessings” stamp set. To be eligible for the prize, leave your comment over at the TCM blog. The deadline is 9:00 pm PDT each day.

[Lijepo sam se zabavila s ovim setom i vidjet ćete ga ponovo na još jednoj mojoj karti ovaj tjedan. A sada, kao što možda već znate, svaki dan postoji nagrada koju možete osvojiti. Danas je to set koji predstavljamo. Kako biste ušli u izvlačenje, potrebno je da ostavite komentar na TCM blogu. Rok je 9:00 pm PDT svakog dana.]

Thank you for stopping by today and for all your support and love you leave here. 🙂

[Hvala vam da ste navratili, za vašu podršku i ljubav koju ovdje ostavljate. 🙂]

Cute animals and shabby technique/Slatke životinje i shabby tehnika

In Uncategorized on June 14, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Today I have two cards to share. The first one is made for a little girl that I heard is in a hospital. I made this bright card with Jane’s Doodles cute animal stamps.

[Danas imam dvije karte. Prvu sam napravila za jednu djevojčicu za koju sam čula da je u bolnici. Napravila sam joj vedru kartu s ovim slatkim životinjicama koristeći Jane’s Doodles set štambilja.]

On my next card I applied shabby chic technique on a brown peace of paper. Recently I made my very first shabby chic chest (read more about it here) and now I wanted to make a matching card. For the inspiration I used two challenges: The Shabby Tea Room and Card Patterns.

[Na svojoj drugoj karti primijenila sam shabby šik tehniku na smeđem komadu papira. Nedavno sam po prvi puta napravila kutijicu u tom stilu (o tome više možete čitati ovdje) i sada sam htjela napraviti odgovarajuću kartu. Kao inspiracija poslužila su mi dva izazova: The Shabby Tea Room i Card Patterns.]
