Bol din pagini de revista / Small paper bowl

Hello all,

Here's a small bowl I made from some folded magazine pages. This is my first attempt at this technique, after seeing some extraordinary bowls, boxes and photo frames in a small shop in Holland last year.

They were sooo nice! When I got back home, I searched the internet for a tutorial to get me started .Here is a link to one of them:
If you like it, try it!
(This is also a fun way to get rid of the stack of old magazines we no longer need...:)...)

Cutiuta mica pentru cadou / Tiny box for a tiny present

Hello all,

Have you ever needed quickly a small gift box and no time to buy it? I for one, never have enough gift boxes or bags...or at least I don'have them when I need them. So, here's one I've made to have it just in case (and of course for the fun of making it...:)   )
I used some scrap cardstock (printed on both sides) and some hand painted paper I had from another project.
Here it is:

It's a 5x5x2 cm box, very well suited for small jewelry.

Felicitare roz, roz, roz... / Pink, girly card

Hello all,

Here's a very pink card, I started working on some time ago, but I didn't seem to find right the idea to finish it.

I had bits and pieces of different scrap paper from other projects, and for some reason it took me a while to assemble them. Finally, it came out...a girly card, quite joyful, suited for a baptism or a little girl's birthday.
(dimensions 14x14 cm)

Daca va place, o gasiti la magazinul Lavly in Timisoara...:)

Hello all,

Recently I discovered a great card making blog, called 365 cards which proposes daily a new theme for a card challenge. For yesterdays theme (just check out the link) I made this card:

To make the little "forget me not" flowers, I used a borders flower stamp and then I cut them out.
I hope you like it!

Felicitare aniversara nunta/ Wedding Anniversary card

Hello everyone,

I've been asked to make a card for a wedding anniversary...:) 45 years of marriage ... wow!
It is wonderful to see that there are still couples which really spend their whole lives together, and have the chance to celebrate this.
Happy anniversary! :)

We call the 45 years of marriage the Sapphire wedding, so the theme of the card is the color blue. Here's how it turned out:

Felicitare cu cirese / Cherries card

Hello everyone,

It seems I am still under the spell of the FIMO cherries from last week...:) So I thought it would be a good idea to make a cherries card for the upcoming birthday of a young girl, friend of mine... (hopefully she will not see this post till then...:)) ).
These days I was browsing through one of my a quilling books, in search of inspiration and I found a project about quilled vegetables ...:). This gave me the idea of making my cherries card have a "country" feel.
Here 's how it turned out:
