Mojo Monday#441

 Here is my card for the 
with papers and stamps from
Club Scrap Paris Flea Market (March 2016 kit)
My card is not a square card, but a 5,5 x 4,25 inch 
(folded 5,5 x8,5 inch).

This circle with the flower is part of a decorated
pece of 12x12 inch from which the card was cut.
The butterfly is punched out of 3 layers of paper
with a Stampin'Up! punch. I fastned the butterfly
to the circle with a piece of scrappers floss and
a button form the Club Scrap kit.
On the bottomof the card you see best here the two 
background papers. The light pink is from the Picknick kit
and the darker pink is embossed with a script embossing
folder before taped to the background.
The birthday sentiment is from the unmounted rubber stamps
 that come with the Paris Flea markit kit.

Thank you for looking.
Have a creative day!

Club Scrap Blog Hop: Notes from Paris Flea Market

Welcome to the 
with the
Paris Flea Market kit from March

I hope you arrived here from
and left some love for her beautiful artwork.
Nowit is my turn.I was so lucky to have a great find
in the dollar stor. This wooden model for
a memo board project that I want to share with you:
You see it is totally ready to be altered.
And this is  the result,but I am quite sure you 
want to know how I came to the end result.
I started with taking a piece of black 12 x 12 inch paper
from the box and puth the bord on top and drwing aline
around it and cut out the shape with a knife and ruler.
Then I took the bottle of Club Scrap bookbinding glue and 
added this to the woodboard and put the paper on top.

With a bottle of black soot acrylic distress paint
I painted the sides black.

Next cover the black paper with the pink design
paper that is cut 1/2 and inch shorter on all sides
and colored the border also with black sooth
distress paint. On top a piece of the gray design
border cut from the grey design paper.
Here you see the finished board with all
it's details and a noteblock in the middle.

Here you see how it looks form behind.
It is best to glue this piece in the holes,
otherwise it might drop out all the time.
A little more about the details.The bird is a die from
Tim Holtz that I used for cutting and I mixed and matched 
the colors fromthe kit.The lovely birdcage charm came
with the kit. The tag on the right started being white and 
I used a few different stamps from the unmounted rubber
stamps that also came with this kit. The pink circle I cut out
from another piece of white paper and added with foam
tape to the tag.
You also see the notepad decorated with a strip from the 
cut aparts. A punched out flower (SU!) with a brad from 
an older kit,but perfect here again! The word notes is
 stamped with a clear alphabet from my stash,
On the left and right of the notepad I added some flowers
cut from the black design paper.

It is also a Tim Holtz die. The flower is fastned to the board 
with a button that came also with the kit. The pink leaves
are cut with a Joy Craft die. Behind the notepad I added
aribbon fromthe kit before glueing the pad to the background.

Here another one of the tags fro the kit. First stamped 
with the french UM rubber stamp and the corner is made
with the stencil that cae with the kit. I tiny pink pearl
from my stash completes this corner.

On the bottem right another bird with in the background
3 of the tiny tags from the kit. I stamped the word notes several
times and here decorated with more sticky pearls.

And here my scrappage for today.
I found this wonderful sketch that inspired me to use for
these wonderful pictures my DD took of the boys dressed
up for Easter.

It is from the 

It had to be a masculine look,so I did not add the pink paper,
but with black,grey and white I think I did pretty well.
I used the TumHoltz bird and flower dies. Also more of the 
tagsthat came with the kit. The added white floweris from my stash.

You see her printed "Pasen 2016" which is the Dutch
word for Easter. After printing I added it to one of the
tags and used a fleur the lis stamp from the UM stamps
around it as a border.

The birdcage is from the Tim
Holtz die and decoraed with a piece of paper lace inked
with black ink. The background is a complete
paper lace sheet that comes with the Paris Flea Market kit
and is so much fun to use in so many different ways. 
I hope you looked at all the artwork from 
the Artist Team technique challenge and saw all
the paper lace possibilities.If not, you can still do
so from HERE.

And for more inspiration,please head over to 
and she what she has to show you to inspire
you to use the wonderful Paris Flea Market kit.
If you happen to lose your way, you can always go back to
the Club Scrap Blog and see all the Team players.

Thank you for looking!

Have a creative day!

Happy Easter 2016

Wishing all my friends a very 
Happy and Blessed Easter!

My card today was inspired by the
Color Challenge on the
is perfect for Easter cards.

Want to know how I made this faux
chocolate bunny?

I think I seen this last year (or the year before on
the blog of Tim Holtz). Cut out a bunny with a
die from cardboard. Then take a piece of alu foil
and a bottle of raspberry alcohol ink. Use a blender tool to
add the ink to the foil.
Cut the foil with a seam around the bunny
ald fold it over.

And here you see part of the finished card.
All papers are Club Scrap Paris Fleamarket.
The sentiment is by Stampin Up!

The cup and the egg stamp are by 
Michael Strong,both embossed in silver.
The ribbon and the paper lace are also by Club Scrap. 
Nothing is thrown away,the other part of the 
egg decorates the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking.

Have a creative day!

Saturday card: color challenge

With Easter so close, I had to come up with
something fun for decoration. So how about this cute
table decoration?!

I was inspired by the color challenge on 

I started with making the little box out of
a 7,5x 7,5 inch of kraft paper. Devide it in 
9 blocks of 2,5 inch to make this box.

Here you see the template I used. Next I cut  4 squares
of 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch of ivory paper. I embossed
these with an egg embossing folder.
Then I lightly colored the raised parts with vintage
photo distress ink. and glued these 4 panels
to the sides of the box. 
Next I took a sheet of paperlace from Club Scrap,
I cut of two of the lacy cornersand
thanI sprayed it with moonlight glimmer mist
(I used a box as not to spray everything on my table).

When the paper lace was dry,I added double sided tape, to half of the
middle square part. Then folded it double and this way I had
created a pocket for the egg.

Lay the egg in the pocket and close it with a ribbon.

I used light blue and gold organza ribbon to close the egg bag.

Now I created a watercolor background for'
stamping the eggs on that are embossed with gold.
One large egg and 4 small ones are cut out with scissors.
The small ones go on each side of  the box with a 
piece of foam tape.
The larger one goes on the card. The size of theis card is 
3"x 4" and the egg stamps and these cute chicks
(also embossed in gold and colored with vintage 
photo distress ink) are by Michael Strong.
With a 8 x 8 inch sheet of tissue paper the egg box
decoration is comblete. Can you imagine having
these cute little boxes on your table tomorrow?

Thank you for looking.

Have a creative day!
