Love Never Fails


Hello friends,

Happy Sunday to you all...

I made this photo frame last night. Nothing else to do and I just got the newest die cut. It's Rosette Heart from Waffle Flowers. Amazing!!

So here is the result. On the picture: my daughters and I. The photo was taken on August 1, 2015, on the 75th birthday of my parents-in-law.


Take a closer look at the Rosette Hearts. They are so beautiful... I added a punched heart on each middle point. The sentiment is word sticker from Authentic.




I love trying new tools and share it with you. This Rosette Heart from Waffle Flowers is really recommended. Love it.

Together

Hi friends,

Adoring this poppy die cut hasn't stopped yet. Lol. I love this die cut. It's been such a long time to finally have it. It makes me to create more and more cards/tags using this die cut. I saw it here and I made a similar card.



I used Memory Box for the poppy flowers. The oval is from My Favorite Things. The banner die cut is from Simon Says Stamp. And the together thinlit die cut and those two embossing folders are from Sizzix. The pattern paper is my favorite color, and it is one of Neroli paper pad from Trimcraft.

I love how it turned out. I'll make more later..

Happy weekend, friends...

Hello Friend - Red and White Tag




Hello friends,

Yes, it is August. And it is the month of the commemoration of the Independence Day of Indonesia. Precisely it will be on August 17. I make another challenge in my Facebook: Dwita's Crafty Crafts. The theme is: Red and White and a little Black. The form can be anything. The media can be from paper to cloth.

This is my tag with that theme:


The tag die cut is from Papertrey Ink as well as the sentiment (from a set of Mat Stack 4 Collection). The poppy die cut is from Memory Box. The squares were punched with a square punch from EK Success. I dotted the poppy petals with a Sharpie Paint Peinture. The bow is from the local store.

Add my Facebook here: Dwita's Crafty Crafts and join the challenge. See you there...

Stamping on Three Cards


Hello friends,

I'm still at home. After cleaning the small parts of the workshop, I made these three cards. Two main stamps with some embellishments. I just used a white card stock. I saw the Brandy Cox tutorial here. Inking the stamp once and stamping on paper thrice seemed to be very economical. I mean, I didn't need to waste the ink on the stamp by wiping it. The paper itself would do.

Here what I came up with.


The leaves stamp, the die cuts 'forever' and 'happy' are from Papertrey Ink. The dots stamp is a cling from Hero Arts. The 'merci' is from Memory Box. I was so glad I could find a die cut word in French. The sentiments are all from Pure Innocence, My Favorite Things.
Take a look on the cards one by one. 




 Whether it is good or not, I don't really think about it. I was only thinking that I was grateful to have much time to make some cards. I really enjoy my time these days, where I don't have to go anywhere. It feels really good to me. Nothing "chases" me. I just do whatever I want to do. Sometimes I really need time like these days. This is just like the time I had before 2013. Hehehe..

Smile

Hello friends,



It's been such a long time. The school holiday went so well. Then followed by an event of a birthday party of both of my parents-in-law. They are both 75 years old. Then, returned home, cleaning my craft room. So messy. Today was the second day cleaning the room. I finally finished it and made this card. The technic was in Jennifer's blog and video here.

I used three Distress Ink to color the white card stock. First the Evergreen, then the Mustard Seed, and finally the Chipped Sapphire. I don't have Pearl Perfect. So I just leave it that way.
I cut 'smile' with Little Yellow Bicycle die cut. I bought it in Hobby Lobby. Then I misted it and doubled it. Before I adhered it, I embossed the white one with Honeycomb embossing folder from Stampin Up!



If you see the picture above, yeah.. I tried the technic for 4 times. Hahaha.... Not bad...

Try it and feel the ease in inking the paper. Love it...

ODOP - Day 14 - Soak Up The Sun




Hello friends,

As today is the end of Summer 'one day one project', it is also the end of my vacation in Surabaya. Before flying to Jakarta, I took the picture of the card with the theme: umbrella.


I used a paper from Echo Park 'I love Sunshine'. I just cut the wentiment from that paper. The first one was stapled. And the one below was just adhered with double tape foam.

Don't get distracted with the cookies behind it. Hehehe. Those were the ones I bought because they were new to me. I wanted to taste them later by having a tea time with my Mom when I arrive in Jakarta.

See you again, my friends...

ODOP - Day 12 - Add a Splash of Color Every Day

Hello friends,

It's Saturday morning here. We all will travel to Malang, to have a short vacation. We will visit several museums and a fruit garden. We'll spend one night there. So, that's why I need to do this uploading in the morning before we leave.

The theme for today is colorful. I used this stamp from a Hero Arts stamp set. I love this set. So versatile. I used this when I made a game board for learning tenses at school. The ink pads were from Versa Color. The sentiment was from MFT.


The sentiment "Add a splash of color to every day" is my favorite sentiment. I ever used it several times. Yeah, it is we who color our own lives. Always add beautiful color every day. Then, on day, when you recall all the memories, you'll remember the beautiful memories.


Happy weekend, my friends.

ODOP - Day 11 - A Smooth Sea never Made a Skilled Sailor


 Hello friends,

Greetings from Surabaya..

Today's theme for one day one project is ocean. I managed myself to buy two papers about ocean. So, here it is:


I used papers from Simple Stories "Treasure Map". I cut the mermaid and attached it with a double foam tape. The twine I think from Maya Road. The stickers were from Authentique : "Petite Type". Everything was fresh from the store.. Lol..

How about the sentiment: A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor? Do you agree with that? Yes, I do agree. For me, that means, problems in our life will "sharpen" us in facing this life itself.

What do you think?

ODOP - Day 10 - Time to Celebrate

Hello friends,

Right now, I am on the train from Cirebon to Surabaya. Yeahh.. it's another trip. The tiredness was faded with the excitement to have another holiday.

For today, the one day one project's theme is animal. I was searching the 'deer' stamp, when I saw this stamp from Penny Black. I wonder when I bought it. Hehehe..

It's so cute, right? I don't have any idea, why I bought this stamp. Because the animals were mice. Heheh, as a matter of fact, I don't like mice. I'm still thinking of the reason of having this stamp. Lol..

This small paper was to complete the date of the event 'written' by the mice.

Ok, then. Happy holiday...

ODOP - Day 9 - Let's Picnic


Hi friends,

I just returned from Bogor. And at home, I had to finish every single thing, before leaving again tomorrow. Oh my.. just if I can skip some things....

This is my card for today. It's a simple one. Nothing special with that. I really had not much time to explore and think much about the theme: Picnic.


The popsicles paper was from Simple Stories "Summer". It was a left over from a pattern paper that I used for the 8'x8' layouts. I hope it's happy to be used. Hehehe. 
 I just added a twine from The Twinery and stickers from October Afternoon. A real simple card.

See you again..

ODOP - Day 8 - ATC - Let's Go for a Ride

Greetings from Bogor,

Yeah, I'm still in the middle of the Refreshing Course in Bogor. We had so much fun today. We went to the Botanical Garden after lunch time. We took so many pictures. We loved the togetherness with my mom, too.

Right now, I just finished all the sessions and had a chance to upload the "one day one project". The theme is ATC about summer. What I like doing in summer are swimming and cycling. So I chose this bicycle stamp from StampinUp!. But before that, in my mind, I thought about 'friendship' theme. I made the first ATC with that F monogram. I will make each of the ATC 15. They will be swapped among the participants of the ODOP.


The sentiment "let's go for a ride" was from Hero Arts. The other sentiment was from StampinUp! stamp set. I added some frantage, too.


I'm waiting for the ATC from the swap.. You?


ODOP - Day 7 - Home is Where Mom is


Hello friends,

Greetings from Bogor. I am in Refreshing Course from my church. I'm here for 3 days. I went with more than 300 people. I also invited my mom to come and join us. What else do I need when my mom is already here? Nothing. That's perfect!

Right now, I have a chance to upload the "one day one project". The theme is about 'home'. I happened to have this pattern paper. And also a little book containing wise words about home.



These are each of them:

The front album
 

This is when it is open
 

This is when the accordion is open
 

These will be used on each page


Yeah... since my children still need my care, so it is very true that "Home is Where Mom is". How about you?

ODOP - Day 6 - Thanks a Melon, Friend


Hello friends,

It's been such a very busy day for me. I needed to pick up and then accompany a group of choir who came from Jakarta. They will be in the morning services in 2 churches tomorrow. I just arrived home and directly made this card.

I used a digital stamp from Bugaboo. You can find it here.  I ever made it once long time ago, when I was a DT of one challenge. This will remind you.

I colored the image with Copic markers.




The watermelon is very cute, right.. Hehehe.. Ok.. enjoy your weekend...

ODOP - Day 5 - Let The Fun Begin

Hi friends,


It's the third day of school holiday. I finished all the cards ordered. 35 pink cards and 35 decorated cards. The pink ones will go to the USA. My friend ordered them from me. And the other 35 will be on sale in Galleries Lafayette in Pacific Place, Jakarta. I'll upload the pictures later.

And for today's ODOP, the theme is Tag and still in summer. So, here it is. For the summer ambiance, I took a piece of paper with colorful splotches. I used Mama Elephant girls stamp. Colored it with Copic markers. The round with a heart was from Papertrey Ink die cut. It's an old collection. The twine was from The Twinery. Then tied it with a colorful ribbon. The June calendar was from Simple Stories "Summer Paradise". I also added some sequins. 27 was a sticker from October Afternoon.


On June 27, some crafter friends will gather in Surabaya. I do hope I can join them. I will be in Surabaya on that day, however, there will be many relatives at home to have vacation together with my family. I hope I can skip for some time to meet my lovely friends.. 

I hope you enjoy my tag...

ODOP - Day 4 - Hello Good Times

Hi friends,


Today's theme is Beach. I remember I have a picture taken last May on the beach. I printed it and I made this layout. It's 8" by 8". I'm not confident enough to make a layout of 12" by 12". Hehehe.. I'm not good enough at making layouts, but I love seeing photos decorated.

It was in Tidung Island, one island in Thousand Islands. It has beautiful beaches, clean sea and beach sand. I love it. I went there with my students..eh.. graduated HS students. We had wonderful time. This picture was taken by my handsome student, Nicky Gunawan.


The background paper was from October Afternoon, "Sarsaparilla". I stamped Hero Arts stamp of Textures and Shapes with Versamark ink pads, turquoise and yellow. The words were from Simple Stories, "Summer Paradise". I cut the waves using MFT die cut. The stickers were from October Afternoon.

See you tomorrow...
