ODOP - Day 29 - Looking Forward

Happy Sunday, friends...

It's just an ordinary Sunday. The difference: I played the keyboard in Sunday School session, for the first time this year.. I was absent for 4 months. And my kids, they joined the kids' choir and also served the fellowship in Music Ensemble at church.

This late afternoon, I made this card. The size is 11 cm x 15 cm. The theme is animal. All I knew that I only had "deer" stamp. But when I searched the stamp drawer, I found this old hedgehog stamp from Penny Black. I stamped it immediately on a piece of white paper that I already cut some days ago. I colored it with Copic markers. Then I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts. Take a closer look on how many layers I attached on the card. The reason? Well, you guess it..

You guess the reason and write it on the comment in my facebook account here: Dwita's Crafty Crafts.

See you tomorrow..


ODOP - Day 28 - Witheart

Hi friends,

A plan was still just a plan. Still, I couldn't manage myself to clean my craft desk. I just made this card for the theme: the logo of the online seller: Witheart. The color is turquoise, with some flowers and a label or a stack in the middle.

In this card, I used Craft Concepts embossing folder: In Stitch. The stack was from a scrap paper. I think I have used this paper for the third time. Hehehe.. So pretty pattern paper that I wanted to use it 'till the end of it. I cut it by using the Papertrey Ink die cut. The swirl on each side of the stack was from Memory Box die cut. The writing "Witheart" was from stickers, the brand was October Afternoon. The ribbon was from a punch, brand McGill.

This is the closer look on the centerpiece of the card.

I love how it turned out. The little red has made the card not boring, I guess.. Hehehe..

Ok, then, hope Vemi will like my card. :D

Thanks for visiting..


ODOP - Day 27 - Let's Go For A Ride

Hello friends,

Tonight, just now, we had a barbeque dinner with the students from Grade 9, the JS teachers and the Principals. We had so much fun taking pictures. It was much different from the farewell of HS a couple day ago. Here is the pic.

The students and some teachers are spending this night together at school. Isn't it fun?

Then I went home, and made this card for the 'one day one project'. The theme: balloons. I used a bike die cut from Memory Box. The grass punch as from MS. The balloons were punched using McGill punch. The sentiment was from Hero Arts.

Tomorrow is Saturday. I will spend some time to clean my craft table. So many things there. Hehehe..
Ok, until tomorrow.

ODOP - Day 26 - It'll Be Okay

Hi friends,

And for today's theme: water. I used My Favorite Things stamp. I stamped again for the umbrella on a scrap paper. Do you still remember this pattern paper? Then I cut it, and attached it with a double foam tape.

Thanks for visiting..

ODOP - Day 25 - Je Pense A Toi

Hello friends,

So many things happened yesterday that I couldn't manage myself to make one project. So today I made 2 projects. Here the first one.

The first one with the theme: country. I used Hero Arts stamp, inked with DI. Then I cut 2 bubbles and stamped them with the French 'mots'. I attached a small red flower. It's a simple card, indeed..

 Last night, there was a Farewell Party with 12 graders. Tears and laughs were bounded into one. This is one of the pics. We had barbeque.. We had so much fun...

And they even celebrated my birthday. Here is the picture.
It was the 8th celebration of my birthday. Oh my soul... what else could make me happier than this time? Eight times celebration... I really thank Jesus. It seems like a blessing in return...

Thanks for visiting..


ODOP - Day 24 - My Birthday Bash

Hello friends,

What a wonderful day!! It's my birthday today. May 19. How many celebration for today's joy? Hmm.. Take a look at these pictures.

The first one: The Tuesday Fellowship. It was this morning in my house. Look at those ladies. Their husbands were working in the same company as my hubby. Some of them already retired. See the joyful faces!

The second was at my Dd's school. It was a celebration of Mother's Day. I had wonderful time with my daughter and other students plus their moms.

 The third one, it was a surprise from my students, the 12 graders. When I came home from school, they were already there. bringing the birthday cake and singing loudly. So surprise..

The fourth, it was a great time with other students from grade 10 and 11. They ate a lot, including the ice cream..

The fifth, I came to church to see my daughters practice the music,  bringing the noodle schotel for the moms. So much fun...

The last one, was a great surprise from my lovely 3 daughters. These cupcakes and a bouquet of flowers.. So wonderful..

Then, I decided to make this card, with the image I love a lot. The image was from My Favorite Things. The sticker HAPPY was from October Afternoon, and the sentiment from Hero Arts.

This is the charm. I was so happy today that I wanted to blow this trumpet. Lol....

What other joy? Everything was so much fun. This is one of the best birthdays I ever have...
Thank You, Lord, for all caring and lovely people I meet along my life...

Thank you, everyone, for all the joy you gave me all day long...

PS: In the morning, my Mom called me, my siblings texted me, my old buddies also texted me. My hubby? He also texted me.. Hahaha...
Waiting for a surprise from him.. :D


ODOP - Day 23 - You Drive Me Coco-Nuts

Wow!! Finally the day has come!! The day I had to color images. Hehehehe... Thank you for the 'one day one project' coordinator for the today's theme. I had to color Tilda or Edwin image on a CAS card.

After finishing it, I took a look and thought, it was not that clean and simple because of those palm leaves.. Well.. I had no effort to repeat. So, this is it.

It's a cute image. I don't remember from which set this Tilda comes from. I bought many stamp sets, but, believe me, this was the first time again I colored Tilda.. Hahahaha...

All stamps were from Magnolia. I stamped the images with Memento ink pads: black and green bamboo, colored them with copic markers.

Hope you enjoy my card.... Happy coloring, too...


ODOP - Day 22 - Thanks Tags

Happy Sunday, everyone...

Today I made these two tags. Easy to do. I just used my Copic markers to make the tri-color rectangle on each tag. Before coloring, I made a "window" from scrap papers.

Here are my tags:

The tag is a die cut from Papertrey Ink. The thanks die cut is from Simon Says Stamp. I covered them with Versamark and put the transparent embossing powder, then heated them. The sentiments were from Hero Arts and My Favorite Things.

I used 6 copic markers and 1 Colorless Blender:

The polkadot ribbons were from local store. The twines were from The Twinery.

You can try this way of coloring. Easy...


ODOP - Day 21 - Three Similar Cards

Hi friends,

This Saturday, I was occupied in the morning. Yeah, I woke up late, then went to a wedding reception, then went the mall to find some gown for my Dd to perform a dance on the farewell nite. No luck. I couldn't find any clothes.

I wanted to make a kurumie. But the daily headache came back. So I decided to submit these 3 similar cards for the 'one day one project'.

Before I gave the half pearls on each flower:

After the half pearls were given:

I made a similar card some time ago. These ones: pattern papers were from Trimcraft. The flowers, the leaves and the sentiments are from StampinUp! I cannot resist this flower stamp. I will make more with the pansy flower with different stamp design. I poured some frantage, too.

And these three will go to the store in Jakarta this coming Monday. Bye..bye, babies...


ODOP - Day 20 - Pocket for Money

Hello friends,

Today was a tiring day. It's the announcement day of 12 graders. Yess! They all passed the National Exams. Great!! Then they and I celebrated today together by having lunch together and going to the beach. It was so much fun. Just look at the picture...

Where is the teacher? LOL....

We really had fun, and went home when the sun was going to set. I came home around 7 p.m. Then I prepared dinner for my kids. After that, actually I was so tired. But I really wanted to make  this pocket money. Voila... whenever the smell of the craft room came, the tiredness faded.. Hahaha..

So, here is my pocket money:

It is only one side. It is not a card. It is only a piece of paper with two pockets. One pocket is for the tag where I can write the message, where the other pocket is for the money. Hey...where am I? In Korea? Hehehe.. Just the remain of the money left from traveling to Korea some time ago..

Here are the details of my creation. I used pattern papers from 1 pad: Kaiser Craft Bluebelle. Love the color combo of all papers.

This pocket money will be given to my Dd's Nursery teacher who gets married tomorrow morning. I do hope they enjoy the gift, as they also enjoy their new life, new family.

Here are the closer look on the pockets themselves:

Well... I hope it inspires you... Now. I'm off to sleep, to regain the strength for tomorrow's activities.

I love you all, my students...


ODOP - Day 19 - Button Presents

Hi friends,

It's Thursday morning. It's the Ascension Day. So I went to church with my daughters. Now I'm at home, making these button presents. I used a stamp set from Papertrey Ink. Fabulous stamp set. I love how they turned out. The rectangle bases were also cut with Papertrey Ink die cut. Actually, I love every stamp set this brand produces. However, the postage from their place to mine is too expensive. And no other websites sell their products. So exclusive!

Here they are:

Before making these 6 button presents, I made this card. But, I was not satisfied with the result. Well, it's worth to show it here.. The stamps and the die cuts were from Papertrey Ink, except "enjoying this" is from Heidi Swapp, and the yellow one is from My Favorite Things.

Really cute.. Do you like collecting buttons? I do.. :D


ODOP - Day 18 - A vintage photo frame

Hello friends,

Before telling you about my creation, I want to share a little story about my first daughter. Her name is Kezia. She is in grade 12. Well, just think that she has graduated, though the announcement hasn't come up yet. Last night she had a prom nite. Don't think that the nite is the same as the original prom nite. As she came home in the middle of the night, she told me that they spent memorable moment with all school grade 12 friends. At almost the end of the event, they cried as if they didn't want to separate from each other.

This is her picture that I took last night before she left for the party:

We were hunting for her dress last month in Surabaya. The whole family. Lol. Then.. she made the accessories by herself: the necklace and the bracelet. All in black. In the afternoon, she went to the hairdresser. But she felt disappointed. She made up her hairdo .. et voila.. She also did her own make up. She really looked gorgeous last night.

And this morning, as the theme is "vintage", I decided to use her photo on my project. This is the result:

I used pattern papers from "Documented" Simple Stories. All the papers were from that 6x6 pad. The photo frame was the old one. Then I sand blasted it a bit here and there to make it look more vintage. Luckily, I have this background to take this picture. Amazingly matching..

The closer look on the monograms:

 And the last one, is a small paper that she needs to tick:

I will give this photo frame tonight after dinner. Well, my heart is starting to feel sad, because, we will be in different cities starting next September. She will go to college. Hopefully she can enter the pubic university studying chemistry as she wishes. Or in the private university studying petroleum. That means she will be away from me. I won't be able to see her every day, every time. That thought already makes me sad and the tears almost fall down..

This photo frame, I hope, will remind her that I love her so much, my going-to-be adult girl..

Do you know how to handle this feeling? Let me know in the comment.

Thanks for visiting and enjoying my creations. See you again tomorrow.
