Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger

In Uncategorized on July 28, 2012 at 4:11 am

Hello! Here I am with today’s card. It is simple and cute like the photo over at the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. I was totally inspired by the doilies, banners and snowy white color. For my project I used my new Echo Park paper pad.

[Dobar dan! Evo mene s današnjom kartom. Jednostavna je i slatka poput slike na Moxie Fab World blogu. Bila sam inspirirana čipkom, tzv. banerima i bijelom bojom. Za ovaj projekt koristila sam nove Echo Park papire.]

Best Wishes/Najljepše želje

In Uncategorized on July 27, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Hi! I am stopping by to share my card I have recently made. It is based on the Colour Q Challenge. I used American Crafts paper and TCM Lovely Labels 14 stamp set (the sentiment is my Croatian stamp – Aunt Betty stamp – that says Best Wishes).

[Pozdrav! Brzinski postam svoju današnju kartu inspiriranu Colour Q natječajem. Koristila sam American Crafts papir i TCM Lovely Lables 14 set štambilja (sentiment pripada jednom mom hrvatskom setu ‘Teta Beta’ štambilja).]

Just for Kids/Samo za djecu

In Uncategorized on July 26, 2012 at 1:46 am

Today I have a special post. We are all very thrilled that the third issue of Croatian Magazine Do!ts is finished. A big group of people contributed and our ladies, Ivona and Martina together with Nebojsa, worked hard so that this issue would look really good.

[Danas imam poseban post. Sretni smo da je izašao treći broj Do!ts časopisa. Bilo je uključeno mnogo suradnika, a Ivona, Martina i Nebojša naporno su radili kako bi ovaj broj izgledao zbilja dobro.]

I did a couple of things for this issue and totally enjoyed it. [Za ovaj broj napravila sam nekoliko stvarčica i zbilja uživala u tome.]

Making cards and decorations for kids is always fun and special. One can really surprise them and make them happy. Recently I made a birthday set for my nephew and you can see it here or here. Now I am learning how to share my work space with him. He is visiting and loves to draw and craft at my desk.

[Izrađivanje karti i dekoracija za djecu je uvijek zabavno i posebno. Djecu se zbilja može iznenaditi i razveseliti. Baš sam nedavno napravila jedan rođendanski set za mog nećaka kojeg možete vidjeti ovdje ili ovdje. A ovih dana učim kako dijeliti svoj kreativni kutak s njim. U posjeti je i zaista voli crtati i stvarati za mojim stolom.]

Today I will share two cards with you that I made a while ago but did not post them. I used my TCM Lovely Labels 14 stamp set. Well, I hope you like the cards and the new issue of Do!ts Magazine.

[Danas ću s vama podijeliti dvije karte koje sam nedavno napravila ali ih još do sada nisam objavila. Koristila sam svoj TCM Lovely Labels 14 set štambilja. Nadam se da vam se sviđaju karte i novi broj Do!ts časopisa.]

Just for you/Samo za tebe

In Uncategorized on July 22, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Hello! Today I have one card for you. I used a set of papers I recently got. They are super cute and more about them you can see at this web site: www.melissafrances.com The colors are soft and so beautiful. And the patterns in the set are just gorgeous. I used Lovely Labels 14 and Ladies and Gents TCM stamps. And the sentiment is one of my stamps in Croatian language (it says ‘Just for you’). I was inspired by the colors at the Play Date Cafe Challenge.

[Pozdrav! Danas imam opet jednu kartu za vas. Koristila sam šarene papire koje sam nedavno dobila. Preslatki su. Više o njima možete vidjeti na ovoj web stranici: www.melissafrances.com Boje su nježne i lijepe, a uzorci su jednostavno prekrasni. Koristila sam Lovely Labels 14 i Ladies and Gents TCM štambilje. Sigurna sam da znate da je sentiment jedan od mojih štambilja na hrvatskom jeziku. Bila sam inspirirana bojama koje su zadane na Play Date Cafe blogu.]

Some more Cards with new TCM stamps/Još malo karti s novim TCM štambiljima

Hello! That was a great release week and a great Blog Hop yesterday! I had so much fun! Well, it would be better (for me) if I had a proper Internet connection at home. Ever since we moved we do not have a phone  and Internet connection in our house so I can do only my basic things using our mobile phone. That is the reason why I do not visit and comment so much on other blogs these last two months. When I upload a card and make my blog post, it is taking me a couple of hours. Sometimes I prepare my text in a document and when I am uploading my pictures  at the same time I would for example make lunch. 🙂 Now, here are my cards I have uploaded while making today’s lunch 😉

[Lijepi pozdrav! Bio je to super tjedan prikazivanja novih TCM štambilja i mislim da smo jučer svi uživali u blog hopu. Meni bi bilo još bolje da imam Internet priključak kod kuće. Otkako smo se preselili nemamo niti priključak niti fiksni telefon, pa sve što trebam obavljam preko mobitela. Zbog toga slabo gledam druge blogove i još slabije komentiram. Kada radim na postu i postavljam slike, sve traje satima. Ponekad pripremam ručak dok stavljam slike na blog. 🙂 Pa, evo moje dvije karte koje sam postavila dok sam spremala današnji ručak. 😉]

The first card is inspired by [Prva karta je inspirirana]:  The Moxie Fab World Challenge – Happy Birthday Cards.

The second card is inspired by [Druga karta je inspirirana]: CAS-ual Fridays, The Moxie Fab World – The Hooked on Hexagons Challenge.

As you can see I have made masculine cards again and played with Lovely Labels 14 and Ladies and Gents TCM stamp sets. On my last card I also used new Spellbinders’ M-bossabilities. I would say these cards are a bit different than those I have made in the last couple of days. Trust me, it is fun and easy to make masculine cards when you have the right stamps and some good papers. Thank you for your visit and all the support!

[Kao što možete vidjeti, opet sam radila karte za muške i koristila Lovely Labels 14 i Ladies and Gents TCM setove. Na posljednjoj karti koristila sam novi Spellbindersov M-bossabilities folder. Rekla bih da su današnje karte malo drugačije od onih koje sam radila u proteklim danima. Zbilja je zabavno i lako raditi ovakve karte kad imate štambilje za to i papire nekih dobrih boja. Hvala vam na posjeti i svoj podršci!]

The Craft’s Meow July Release Blog Hop

In Uncategorized on July 21, 2012 at 4:00 am

Welcome to the Craft’s Meow July Release Blog Hop! 

The day is finally here and you can see some more projects we all have made with new TCM stamps and you can also see the entire sets that are revealed at the TCM blog. We had a great guest designer, Naomi Gong, helping us this month. You had the chance to win some stamps each day, and same goes for today too. To be eligible for the prize today, you need to visit each blog on the list and leave a comment. Visit the TCM blog for some additional informations. And, there is more! If you go and shop over at TCM store, you need to know that with $50 purchase you will get a free stamp set called ‘Summertime with Fibi & Lilly ‘. I made a couple of cards today and I hope you like them. I had so much fun with TCM stamps today and made so much cards that I have some more cards to show tomorrow (the post is already big enough).

[Došao i je i taj dan, posljednji dan prikazivanja novih srpanjskih TCM štambilja. Danas možete vidjeti nove projekte koje smo napravili i izgled setova u potpunosti na TCM blogu. Imali smo super gošću, Naomi Gong, koja nam je pomogla ovaj mjesec. Svaki ste dan mogli osvojiti neke štambilje, a isto vrijedi i danas. Da biste bili u igri za današnju nagradu, posjetite i komentirajte blogove na listi. Posjetite TCM blog za sve dodatne informacije. Ali, ima toga još! Ukoliko se odlučite za neku kupovinu u TCM trgovini, za svaku kupnju od 50$ dobiti ćete besplatan set štambilja pod nazivom ‘Summertime with Fibi and Lilly’. Danas sam napravila nekoliko čestitki. Nadam se da vam se sviđaju. Toliko sam se zabavila s ovim novim štambiljima da sutra imam još nekoliko karti za vas (post je već ionako velik).]

The first card is inspired by [Prva je karta inspirirana]: The Moxie Fab World – Hello Card Challenge.

Here I used my stamp set ‘Ladies and Gents‘ (the top-hat)  to create a pattern, and a sentiment from ‘Sweet Taste of Summer’ set. [Ovdje sam koristila šešir iz mog seta pod imenom ‘Ladies and Gents‘, i sentiment iz seta ‘Sweet Taste of Summer’.]

The second card is inspired by [Druga je karta inspirirana]: Colour Q.

I used parts of ‘Ladies and Gents‘ set (the sentiment, top-hat and the clock) and a small ornament between the top-hat and the sentiment from my ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ set. As you can see I really enjoy making masculine cards with my new ‘Ladies and Gents’ stamp set. I like it so much that I decided to work on another masculine stamp set. 🙂 I have another masculine card, but that one I will post tomorrow.

[Ovdje sam koristila dijelove seta ‘Ladies and Gents‘ (sentiment, šešir i sat) i mali ukras iz mog seta koji je bio predstavljen prošli mjesec pod nazivom ‘Lovely Labels 14‘. Kao što možete vidjeti, sada uživam raditi karte za muške koristeći svoj novi ‘Ladies and Gents’ set štambilja. Toliko mi se sviđa da sam odlučila poraditi na novom setu štambilja samo za takve karte. 🙂  Napravila sam još jednu kartu za muške, ali nju ću postaviti sutra.]

And this is my third card for today inspired by [I na kraju evo moje treće karte za danas koja  je inspirirana s dva izazova]:  Stampin’ Sisters in ChristThe Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. The big stamp is from the ‘Ladies and Gents‘ set, and the sentiment from ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ set. [Suncobran je dio Ladies and Gents‘ seta, a sentiment iz ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ seta. ]

In case you got lost in the Blog Hop, here is the entire list [U slučaju da ste se izgubili u listi blogova, evo cijelog popisa]:

‘Love Dwells Here’ stamp set

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

Today is the third day of The Craft’s Meow July Release previews. I have made my card using new TCM set called “Love Dwells Here”, and I have to tell you it is a cute one. 🙂 I drew and cut out the tea cup and used the Spellbinders dies for the house. I also used their new M-bossabilities. This card is inspired by: Embellish Challenge and Retro Sketches.

[Treći je dan otkako predstavljamo nove TCM štambilje. Današnju sam kartu napravila uz pomoć novog i zbilja slatkog seta pod imenom “Love Dwells Here”. Nacrtala sam i izrezala šalicu, a za kućicu sam koristila Spellbinders nožiće. Također sam koristila njihove nove M-bossabilities embosing foldere. Moja je karta inspirirana: Embellish izazovom i Retro Sketches.]

For some more informations on these sets and the prize you can won, and more beautiful cards from our design team and guest Naomi Gong, visit TCM blog. Join us tomorrow to see the previews of other sets and on July 21 for the big Blog Hop where you would be able to see all the sets completely reviled.
