CraftyJC Challenge #16: From Sabrina

Here is another lovely inspiration from Sabrina – a unique take on this month’s challenge.

Thanks for the great inspiration Sabrina :)

"My name is Sabrina, but in this blog-land I'm known as Vinka.   I'm an engineer and work for a GIS software company; I'm also married and live in Bogota, Colombia.
I got into the scrapbooking world about a  year ago, when I discovered a course on making beautiful albums and layouts with pictures.  Since then I've been in workshops, courses and diving on Internet learning from videos and awesome blogs every kind of techniques and projects to do.  I love everything related with crafting, cards, albums, layouts ... Anything I can make with my own hands will always be a good way to use my free time."
About my inspiration for this month challenge, I have two inspirations”

"I made some cards for my mom, grandma and aunt but, for the current challenge -For a Special Lady-, I decided to show you a simple but meaningful card I made for one of my best friends.  A week ago we found out she is pregnant and the inspiration came along... current challenge -For a Special Lady-,
Here you have some details of the card, I choose gray colors because we still don't know if it is a boy or a girl.  I hope you like it"

"This is my card for the current challenge -For a Special Lady-.  It's a circular easel card I made for the Mother's day.  I used the 'Princess Party Tilda' Magnolia Stamp, flourishes and ovals made with the big-shot and a fabric flower to embellish the sentiment.
Here you can see some details. Some pieces of paper where embossed to add dimension.  Tilda's dress and crown where embellished with some sparkles, I love sparkles!.  I hope you like this card as much as I do and of course, I hope you join this month challenge with your own creations."
Once again.  thank you very much for inviting me to the DT for this Challenge!  Let me know if the pictures are ok for hte blog post, or if you need something else.

Such gorgeous creativity on display! :) Thanks a lot Sabrina 

Do leave Sabrina some love and come back and play with us on this month’s challenge

CraftyJC Challenge #16 – An inspiration from Ayesha

Today’s inspiration is from Ayesha Ahmed. Her blog is fully of such lovely original creative takes. And she is so generous with her tutorials too.

Off to Ayesha.. :)


"   My idea of spending quality time alone is with paper, glue, scissors, some ideas and possibilities are endless like our imagination.  Ever since childhood I have passion for paper craft, I loved being a part of craft classes at school or would spend the entire summer afternoon doing something crafty.  While working as an Assistant Manager for an MNC, I always took out time for my hobby from my busy schedule.  I loved participating in craft activities at office and whenever possible I made use of creativity in my work.  Now as a housewife I'm glad I can devote more time for my passion.  I hope in future as well I continue to learn and experiment with new crafting techniques everyday. "

And here is her awesome card
For a special woman 008

I used a Sarah Kay image and colored it using mixed media technique so you could see marker, pencil colours and glitter paint used in the image.  I have also added my handmade flower to it.  "

For a special woman 011


What gorgeous colouring!! :) Thanks for the great inspiration Ayesha :)

Now girls, please do leave some love to Ayesha and come back here to join us on this month’s special challenge  CraftyJC Challenge #16 – For a special lady
