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).]

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. :)]

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.]

New Flourishes Stamps/Novi Flourishes štambilji

In Uncategorized on April 13, 2012 at 6:30 am

Today, before I start my work, I decided to post my two projects. I made them using new Flourishes stamps. The bookmark is simple with bright colors. I have to admit that I love that combination. The card, on the other hand, is not so simple. I enjoyed coloring those flowers. These stamps are made for your markers. 🙂

[Danas, prije nego započnem s poslom, odlučila sam podijeliti s vama svoja dva projekta. Napravila sam ih koristeći nove Flourishes štambilje. Straničnik je jednostavan s vedrim bojama. Moram priznati da volim tu kombinaciju. Karta, s druge strane, nije jednostavna. Uživala sam u ručnom bojanju ovih štambilja. Napravljeni su baš za flomiće. 🙂]

My Vintage Card

In Uncategorized on April 12, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Before I continue with my work, let me just share a card with you. I finally had the time yesterday to play with some new stamps. They are very beautiful. My hubby helped out with the silhouette since I am not so good at drawing faces. Have a great day!

[Prije nego nastavim s poslom, odlučila sam postati današnju kartu. Jučer sam konačno uhvatila malo vremena i poigrala se novim štambiljima. Prekrasni su. Muž mi je pomogao s ovom siluetom budući da meni baš i ne ide crtanje lica. Želim vam ugodan dan!]

Scratched paper, fabric and stamp/Izgrebani papir, tkanina i štambiljić

Today I was relaxing a bit and made this card. I scratched the embossed paper, made the ribbon out of my fabric, and colored the Flourishes stamp. It was fun.

[Danas sam malo odmarala i napravila ovu kartu. Izrulila sam ovaj embosani papir, napravila trakicu od tkanine i ručno obojala otisak Flourishes štambilja. Bilo je zabavno.]

Today I will share my card and after that I will have some quality time with my loved ones. I love those days off when you can enjoy the company of your extended family. Inspired by a couple of challenges I made a spring card with bright colors (mostly white and blue, but I also used soft colored pearls) using my “Just for you” sentiment stamp. Visit those blogs and have some fun too. I played with some fabric (for the flowers and ribbon) and Spellbinders dies (Scalloped Circles for the flowers and Labels 14).

[Nakon postanja današnje karte uslijedit će druženje s mojim najdražima. Volim te slobodne dane kada mogu uživati u zajedništvu sa širom obitelji. Nekoliko natjecanja potaknulo me na izradu ove vedre karte (uglavnom sam koristila plavu i bijelu, no možete vidjeti i bisere nježnih boja) sa mojim “Samo za tebe” sentimentom. Posjetite dolje navedene blogove i malo se zabavite. Poigrala sam se tkaninom (za cvjetiće i traku),te Spellbinders rezalicama (Scalloped krugovi za cvjetiće i Labels 14).]

I hope you are enjoying this Easter time too. These days I was thinking how Easter lost its meaning (at least it looks like that) just like Christmas. Remembering what Jesus did for us (taking the punishment for our sins) and opening the way to eternal life for those who believe by being the first one to resurrect, I was wondering how many people around me really believe that one day they will be resurrected to be eternally with the one true God. People wish each other happy Easter even though some of them do not believe in Jesus, do not believe in the Bible… well, if you are thinking about the meaning of Easter too, feel free to write me an email.

[Nadam se da uživate u ovom blagdanskom vremenu. Ovih sam dana baš razmišljala kako je Uskrs, baš poput Božića, izgleda izgubio svoj pravi smisao. Prisjećajući se što je Isus učinio za nas (uzevši mjesto nas kaznu za naše grijehe) i kako je otvorio put u život time što je prvi uskrsnuo, pitala sam se koliko ljudi oko mene zapravo vjeruje da će uskrsnuti i svoju vječnost provesti s jedinim Bogom. Čestitamo si Uskrs, iako neki uopće ne vjeruju u Isusa, u ono što Biblija kaže… ah, ako i vi razmišljate o značenju Uskrsa, nemojte se ustručavati napisati mi email.]

A notebook and new paper sets/Blok i novi “Teta Beta” setovi

Today I played with the Mojo Monday Sketch and colors from the Play Date Cafe. I made this notebook. Some of the products I used for my notebook are: Spellbinders (Edgeabilities for the flower and the lace), Teta Beta paper, a notebook,  Waltzingmouse stamp, a magnet (in the middle of the circle and behind the flower). Now I would like to apologize to my english speaking readers for not translating the rest of my post. Since I will be writing about my new paper sets available only in Croatia and surrounding countries I thought it will be better this way. 🙂

[Danas sam se poigrala s Mojo Monday nacrtom i bojama s Play Date Cafe bloga. Ukrasila sam još jedan blokić. Neki od proizvoda koje sam koristila su: Spellbinders (Edgeabilities za cvijet i čipkicu), Teta Beta paper, blok/bilježnica,  Waltzingmouse stamp,  magnet (u sredini kruga i ispod cvijeta).]

[Za ukrašavanje današnjeg bloka, koristila sam jedan stariji “Teta Beta” papir i jedan novi. Od danas možete naručiti jedan od pet novih setova vidljivih na web stranici. Postoje dvije vrste papira koje možete birati: mat od 200 gr/m2 (kakav je prvi set) i nešto sjajniji od 250 gr/m2 (prugasti u pozadini koji sam danas koristila). Novi su setovi napravljeni tako da se mogu lakše međusobn kombirnirati, za razliku od prvog seta koji je namijenjen kombiniranju s jednobojnim papirom. Ukoliko navratite sutra na sajam u Boogaloo, možete vidjeti i kupiti ove nove setove. Ako pak živite malo dalje, dovoljno je da pošaljete email. 🙂]
