Paper Bauble for the Christmas tree / Glob de hartie pentru pomul de Craciun


Some time ago I discovered this amazing site: that presents traditional Danish paper crafts. Since Christmas is not that far away now, I thought I'd try my hand at the easiest design of spheres:
So I printed the template on colored cardstock and followed the instructions. I have to tell you... it is not at all easy to cut all the paper strips by hand, but the most difficult is weave them tight enough so sphere closes correctly in the end.
Here's how my first bauble turned out (is is far from perfect, but it wasn't a complete disaster either):

The next time, I shall try with thinner sheets of paper maybe...

Si a fost festivalul Plai 2013...

Anul acesta am participat din nou la Plai in echipa celor de la Camarila Culturala  -
Tema noastra a fost "Teatru la firul ierbii" - vizitatorii nostri au avut ocazia sa-si construiesca o mica piesa de teatru, de la personaje si decoruri, pana la text si prezentarea pe scena. Cine au fost personajele? au fost papusele din linguri de lemn, pe care fiecare le-a ornat dupa cum i-au soptit muzele...:)
Larisa Plesca ne-a facut niste poezioare foarte frumoase, numai bune de pus in scena si i-a ajutat pe copii sa-si creeze propriile povestioare.
Iata cateva poze care va vor spune mult mai multe despre atmosfera grozava de la stand decat as putea sa spun eu in cuvinte :)

Mesterim papusile:

 Se scriu textele:

Se joaca piesa:

Echipa: Adriana Gaita, Monica Plesca, Larisa Plesca, Cristina Floruncut, Andreea Florucut, Laura Gaita, Sorana Sferdean

New baby girl card / Felicitare bebelus fetita


Some time ago I bought a die from Marianne Design, that cuts the word "baby" in a nice handwritten like font. This is the first card I made using it.

I used Copic markers to color the word in that old burgundy color. The top and bottom borders are made with washi tape (let me tell you it isn't easy to align the strips of washi tape...:D). The small flowers come from a paper napkin.

Card size: 10x15 cm

Flip-Flop wedding card / Felicitare mobila pentru nunta


here's another flip-flop card I made...this one is for a wedding. The template comes from here, and it is an A5 card.
As a base I used a double sided scrapbooking cardstock from Stamperia and I embellished it with a  very romantic wedding couple stamp on a scalloped tag on one side. On the back, I put the same tag, distressed with some stamp ink, and left it blank, so a handwritten sentiment can be added later to give it an even more personal feel and look.

Here's how it looks like:
