All shapes and sizes ❤ la-la land crafts

This week at la-la land crafts we are creating in all shappes and sizes. One of the easiest and most used shape in certainly a rectangle card. I like using different shapes but cards with this shape are also a lot of fun.
On this card I used Marci with Menorah. She is very similar to my favourite Shy Marci, so I had to colour up this one too. Honestly I don't know anyone who celebrates Hanukkah, but creating a card for this occasion was fun.

Dies used on this card:

Distress markers and ink pads used:
Distress markers and ink pads used:

Life is a Soup Tilda - recipe book

Today I'm showing you one of my latest makes. I got this super cute Life is a Soup Tilda recently and I absolutely love her. She's small, so she can fit on different projects which I love!!!
I made this recipe book myself using Bind-it-all machine.

The size of this notebook is 7" x 5". I made hard covers using a thick chipboard and a few layers of paper and design paper. Inside there are striped pages.  

Papers used on this project are from Maja Design, Sumertime collection. I haven't used a lot of dies on this one, only a few from C.C.Designs, border from la-la land crafts and tags from Little Darlings.

Image was coloured using Distress markers and ink pads. It was stamped with Archival ink (jet black) on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper.

I added "My favourite RECIPES" chipboard from Scrapiniec.

I added some lovely lace and some pompom trim. I also used a bit of white crackle paint on the corners.
