She decided... / Workshops in Trzęsacz


This wooden frame we created during summer workshops in Trzęsacz with Ewa Morzowska. This was our 5th workshop. Originally there was a vintage photo which we could use with this frame but I decided to add my mum photo (I created it the way I can swap pictures, the vintage photo is at the back).

Tą piękną drewnianą ramkę zrobiliśmy razem z Ewą Morozwską podczas letnich warsztatów w Trzęsaczu. To był nasz 5ty warsztat. Do ramki każdy otrzymał stare zdjęcie, które mógł użyć. Ja zdecydowałam się dodać zdjęcie mojej mamy. To miejsce na zdjęcie skleiłam tak, że mogę zamieniać zdjęcia. Stare zdjęcie jest cały czas pod spodem.


We had a very nice stamps with sentiments. I picked this one: She decided to start living the life she had imagined.

Mieliśmy ładne stemple z sentencjami, ja wybrałam taki (w moim tłumaczeniu) 'Ona zdecydowała się zacząć żyć życiem, które sobie wymarzyła.



We decorated the frame with crackle medium. I was very happy to see lots of cracks on mine frame :)

Ramkę ozdobiliśmy medium pękającym. Bardzo się ucieszyłam widząc, że na mojej pokawiło się mnóstwo spękań :)


And here is a picture with the vintage photo.

A tutaj jest zdjęcie ze starym zdjęciem.

Here is a frame with the photo I picked up earlier for this project but then decided to add to canvas I showed previously.

To zdjęcie, które dałam na blejtram miało być do tej ramki domku.

Introducing the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection Blog Hop


Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called Chantilly Paper Lace - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection -------> HERE.

Have you ever rummaged around in your grandmothers attic, through memories of the past to find sweet letters and cards romantically tucked away for safe keeping while preserving sweet acquaintances and conversations of the past?  Letters adorned with the finest decorations, now tattered and ripened with age, impress what an honor it was to receive these treasures. Becca reached into the past to restore some of these treasures, preserving the fine detail, the elegance and the pure femininity into modern day romantic die cuts that are at home on any card. The collection is reminiscent of petticoats, fine lace and adornments and are designed so that each die works with the other. In fact, the card front dies are designed so that they can be used alone or two can be layered over each other. Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  

We are listing all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog and hint-hint you'll want to make sure you leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog too. The prize details are at the bottom of my post. So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:




I created two shaped cards using Lunette Arched Borders. You can find Becca's tutorial how to use border dies to create a shaped card - here. To die cut the borders I connected two dies from this set, Lunette Insert and Top Arch Cut die. This card measures approx. 5-3/8'' high by 5-1/2'' wide. The lovely accent, Romantic Loops, which I placed at bottom of this card comes from Spellbinders S4-709 Graceful Corners One and tiny tags are from Spellbinders SDS-053 Graceful Tiny Tags Stamp and Die Set.



'Happy Birthday' card I created the same way like the first card. I just die cut one side of the card. This card measures approx. 5'' wide by 5-3/8'' high. The accent at the bottom of this card and two of the flowers are from Spellbinders S4-791 Isadora Trinkets die set.

This is a beautiful die set. The arches allow to make shaped cards as well as decorate backgrounds by using just inserts.


Second up is Spellbinders S4-819 Lilly Pearl Flat Fold Flower/Border



On my first card with Lilly Pearl die I used the die as a border. I die cut three largest borders and two medium ones and arranged them on the card. I did not cut the borders to fit the card base before gluing them down. I did it after all of them were in place. I just trimmed all at once. The decorative accent which is on this card is from Spellbinders S6-078 Regal Allure.




My second card with Lilly Pearl die is a card where I used the die as a flower. I created a beautiful lily using all three dies in this set. I also added leaves from Spellbinders S4-792 Cinch and Go Flowers Two and used Spellbinders S5-308 Hemstitch Rectangles as a background for my card. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasion Stamp and Die set.



To create lily all you need to do is fold the scored lines and fold the flower with as many petals as you like. I have eight petals as I noticed that when I was using thick patterned paper (from Blue Fern Studio) the flower closed easier with eight petals. Once the flowers is folded I added a tiny bit of glue at the very end. I twisted a bit each petal on a pencil to give a bit of dimension.


I took a few photos to show how to fold the flower. 
After folding scored lines you need to fold diagonal folds to the left and keep them on the top.


Add a bit of glue at the end on the little triangle and glue it on the top of the other end.


This is the front of the flower.


And this is the back of the flower.

Live a Life Inspired / Workshops in Trzęsacz


Podczas naszych piątych warsztatów w Trzęsaczu z Ewą Mrozowską zrobiliśmy blejtram. Bardzo lubię robić z Ewą takie prace. W orginale blejtram ma zamiast zdjecia sentencje. U dołu posta załączyłam zdjęcia blejtramu bez zdjecia mojej mamy. To zdjęcie miałam przygotowane do innej pracy ale tutaj tak pasowało, że zostało w blejtramie.

During summer workshops in Trzesacz with Ewa Mrozowska we also made this canvas. Originally we made this canvas without a photo. I had this photo ready for another project (which I will show later on) but it fitted here so well that I decided to leave it on this canvas.


Na moim blejtramie jest moja mama przed domem, w którym mieszkała. Dom ma numer 10 tak jak czerwony numerek na blejtramie. Jest również metalowa zawieszka Happy (szczęśliwa), a na tagu odbiłam stempel z napisami m.in. photos enclosed (zdjęcia załączone) oraz limited edition (edycja limitowana) :)

There is on the photo my mum in front of the house where she used to live. The house number was 10 like the red number on canvas. I also added a metal charm with Happy on it and stamped the tag the way it shows 'Photos enclosed' and 'Limited edition' so it fits the photo too.


Blejtram z sentecją: tworzenie to oddychanie... żyj życiem zainspirowanym. Obok blejtramu leżą drobiazgi od Ewy :)

Here is a picture without the photo of my mum just with the sentiment. There are next to the canvas little gifts from Ewa :)
