Lucas is turning 3!

Hi Everyone,

I am sorry that I didn't get around to posting my further entries to the MFT Summer School Challenge - I got quite sick, and I didn't really have the chance to blog much. However, you can see them on my Instagram account :o)

Today, I want to share with you a card I made for a very special little boy - he's my friend's youngest son, and my older daughter's partner in crime! He's an absolutely adorable little man, and I simply had to make a card especially for him, now that he's turning 3 (seriously, where has the time gone?!).

I used Altenew goodies for the card, and even though I had a completely different design in mind when I sat down to make the card, I am really happy with where the creative process took me! It's funny how sometimes our ideas change entirely, once we sit down to craft! Or am I the only one who does that? 

The card is relatively simple, but I like how all the elements came together, and - of course - I can't stop playing with the wobbling element! I am pretty sure the birthday boy will like this part best, too!







I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Altenew - August Challenge
The Daily Marker Coloring Contest - Intermediate


Hope you have a great week,

Mirella

Clean and Simple card with MFT Bitty Bears

Hi Everyone,

Today, I am back with another card that I made for the MFT Summer School. The homework this time was to create a project with a focal point. 

I went for a very CAS (Clean and Simple) style card, as I think these are best for showcasing focal points. The colours were inspired by the current MFT Colour Challenge, and between these two challenges, the idea for the card somehow came together really nicely :o)

I am really happy with how this turned out, and I love how sparkly and glossy the balloon is - it looks super cool in real life!





I am entering this into the following challenges:
Passion For Promarkers - Sparkle and Glitter
I love ProMarkers - Anything goes



Have a great weekend,

Mirella

MFT Summer School 2018

Hi Everyone,

It's been a while since I last wrote here, hasn't it? Different things (aka LIFE) happened, and I was not able to craft as much in the recent weeks as I would have liked to, but hopefully it will be getting better now! 

Hope you all had a great summer? Or are still having one, seeing that it's only the middle of August, LOL. 

My mojo was hidden somewhere under my craft desk due to this long break from crafting... I was really reluctant to make anything, as it simply seemed like I was out of ideas... And then a fantastic email came from MFT - it's time for Summer School 2018! Let me tell you - there is no better way to get those crafty cogs turning than a fantastic challenge! 

Day 1 is all about Monochromatic projects. I will be honest with you - I started prepping all my favourite pinks and purples, and then... decided to go out of my comfort zone a little bit, and work with some blues instead! I also opted for a more less CAS (Clean and Simple) design, as - again - it's not my forté, and it's good to challenge oneself every now and again in different ways!

I happened to receive this cool Friend Die from one of my crafty friends, Koren (thanks, Koren!) in the last few days - it was on my desk, so I decided to use it! :o)

And here's the result: 



I am entering this into the following challenges:
SSSM Challenge - Sprinkles and Splatters

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out - especially, with how straight all the die cut "friend" words are! 

I wanted to add a few sequins or embellishments to the front panel, but in the end decided not to - sometimes less is more, right?! 

Can't wait for day 2 of the Summer School - crafty homework is the best homework, I tell you!

Have a great day,
Mirella
