Happy Hellos!

My name is Anna and I'm a Pole living recently in Airdrie (near Calgary in Canada), hopeless in love with paper. Usually sitting in my studio between 8pm and midnight, if my energy lasts that long after another day with a toddler Jakob and a baby Lisa. I love to share my crafts with you, please be my guest!

My Pilots-TCR #50 & PL #230

After a bunch of cards lately, finally a LO.

This LO is based on Jakob's first trip with our Piper which registration number is C-GJBY. He was so excited and focused during the flight like his father, who is our pilot. I had to take some pics of my two pilots and the palette #50 of The Color Room was perfect to scrapbook them. I used my new stamp set from SU! With two pilots in the family I felt obligated to have them in my collection=) Every reason is good to buy stamps, right?

This time, very modest with the embellishments, but I was focusing on colors and stamps. I also really wanted to use the pilot map as a background. Sometimes less is more.....

Some details:

 I used the sketch from Pencil Lines #230:

Pink- no, purple- yes: CR84FN/WMSC #39/PDCC#73

Hello bloggers,

one more post today-using the time when my little guy is having fun with his buddies at the day care and my big guy spending time at the phone conference =)

I decided to play this time with CR84FN color challenge and Waltzingmouse sketch #39 challenge. During my work on this card and other card for the Play Date Cafe challenge #73 I came to the conclusion that I feel better working with purple, but I'm totally lost working with pink. So I'm now relieved, when I think about scrapbooking pictures of my little girl, who will be born in June this year. I will use a lot of purple and for variety purposes peachy color, which I also like. Think about the designer papers from Graphics 45-my dear stamping friend Wendy organized them for me. Thanks Wendy!!!

This card will be entered at the CR84FN color challenge and Waltzingmouse sketch #39 challenge:

 This card is meant for the Play Date Cafe challenge #73:

Please take a look at the yummy inspiration colors:

Buttons, buttons, a little bit too late.....

Pencil Lines #229 and Webster's Pages


yesterday I got in my hands the pretty! pretty! pretty! Webster's Pages. Honestly you don't need a lot of embellishments, becuase the papers speak for themselves.

The sketch comes from Pencil Lines, #229. Ahhhh, to work with them make life sooooooooo easy! Thanks PL!

My "best" friend-pink/Moj "najlepszy" przyjaciel-kolor rozowy...

please take a look to the LO in...pink. You know my "love" to this color, but I rather use to it, because in 3 months I will be a mom to a baby GIRL!

I worked hard on this LO, a little bit messy, but not bad..... I think, considering that pink is not my strength!

Thanks for your time dear follower,

Two similar cards-two different challenges

Hello bloggers and my faithful followers,

this time I made two similar cards, but for two different challenges. I used the designer papers from Cosmo Cricket, which I adore and wish, I could buy them again. But somehow can't find them anymore.

The first card is for the Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger-Oh so lovely with the great inspiration picture. When I saw it, I had to think of my Cosmo Cricket stash. I used again my silhouettes stamp, but lately I just love them, because last week I won a challenge using them ;)

The second card is based on the sketch from Polki scrapuja:

Thanks for stopping by,

New Color Challenge-Totally Hues & Fave Color Challenge-ColorQ!

Happy hellos,

I needed to make a Baby Boy card and I found a new color challenge Totally Hues #3, which matches my theme. I didn't want to make it only blue. I think the combo: blue plus shades of oranges is awesome choice!
By coincidence ColorQ #75 has very similar combo this week, but I was more inspired by the picture of animal cookies. I left out the black color, because I want to avoid this color for a Baby card.

Thanks for your visit and have a great rest of the week,

Very productive evening!

Hello bloggers,

this evening was unbelievable for me-my Mojo didn't want to leave my studio!!! I wish, I have this feeling every evening! Usually I am a slower cardmaker/scrapbooker, but tonight I produced 3 cards. I can imagine, that the great sketch from Waltzingmouse Challenge #36 was the reason!

I had a hard time to decide, which of these three cards I will enter for the challenge and that's my choice!

I have to confess that I switch a little bit the sketch to be able to use my beautiful new stamps from Hero Arts and my fave Webster's pages.
The second product of my Mojo tonight is also made using of the three beauties, but in different colors.

The third one is made using the peacock feather, matching the gorgeous Webster's pages designer paper. I couldn't resist to add some blinkies in the centre of the feathers. That's the best part of the process of card making for me-adding some embellishments... like a dessert.

It's late already, I better go to bed, tomorrow a long day for me, but I feel so good after my precious time in my studio. Am I obsessed with my stamping.....????? No......hmmmm, maybe a little bit...... A nice obsession, don't you think?

Take care,
