Christmas cards 2023 – part one

Hello and happy Friday! Today is a good day to start sharing this years Christmas card creations ;-). So here is part 1:

I used papers from last year with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch on this card. Then I added rhinestones into the middle and some Nuvo Drops for additional interest.

For the second card I also used the Vicky Boutin Christmas papers from last year and added some Nuvo Drops and a Klartext stamped sentiment into the bauble.

For the last card I again used the Vicky Boutin Christmas paper on the background. On top of that I added a dry embossed (Cuttlebug) green paper that I had treated with a golden Gelato. On top of everything I added some embellishments and a clear sticker sentiment.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

DAP-journal / December 31st, 2022

Hello! This is the very last page share from my 2022 DAP-journal:

I gessoed the page first, then I added spray inks on top and some Neocolors. On top of that I grabbed some washi tape and stickers from my stash and added the original almanac page to go with them. I then wrote “better times ahead” onto yellow paper scraps and adhered them to the page.

This is the FULL 365 days of journal. As you can see, they did fit into the journal. BUT it is very, very thick. I might need to change the binding to a bigger one and then figure out, what kind of covers I want to add to it.

Here is the “top view”. Very thick indeed ;-).

This is it, when helt together with a hand. If I change the ring binding to a huge one, it might work with covers too. Still need to do that. But it is such a cool journal! Lots to look at and some parts are even interactive, so it makes it more interesting. I had fun doing it. Some pages were hard to do, some came easier. And at some point I thought I´d never finish it. But here it finally is. I am very proud of being able to finish it.

I will share a full flip-thru in near future. Just have to make a video of it first. So stay tuned :). Thanks for sticking with me thru this project! I had a good time – hope you enjoyed watching it!?

And now to other stuff – Christmas card sharing time is just around the corner again ;-). So bare with me for the next days (and maybe weeks), when I share a motherload of Christmas cards here.

Take care!

DAP-journal / December 30th, 2022

Hello and happy Wednesday! Here is yet another DAP-journal page share (next to last share!!):

Here I created the background in two colours with Distress Paints, then I fussy cut the flowers from the original almanac page and only used those in between hand drawn ones and finished the page off with a bold sentence: “dreaming in color”. I really like the spring-feel of this :-). I don´t care if it´s a December page and it turned out like spring ;-).

Have a lovely day!

DAP-journal / December 29th, 2022

Hello and happy Tuesday! Here is yet another DAP-journal share:

For this one I used Neocolor 2´s, Stabilo Woody´s and Stabilo all black pencil with the original almanac page cut into smaller bits and added to the rest. Lots of earth tones here. I didn´t want to add any words or journaling this time, so I just kept the page very simple.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna


DAP-journal / December 28th, 2022

Hello there! Here is another share from my DAP-journal:

For this page I used a premade gelli printed background piece (done with a STAMPlorations stencil – my line there) and some Glimmer Mist on top. In addition to that layer, I added strips of washi, some white gesso, Stabilo all black pencil and Neocolor 2´s. On top of those layers I added the original almanac page and it fits the color sheme very well.

Have a good start into the new week!
