My creative year 2017

I seriously can't believe that I'm writing this review again and that 2017 is over. This year was super busy for me. I kept my awesome teams from last year (la-la land crafts, I am roses & C.C. Designs) but I was also a very lucky to get a new dt position at Swedish House Crafts which is not only a great store but I also got a new very good friend Suha (the owner).

I was featured in quite a few magazines (Simply cards, Papercraft essentials, Simply cards, Creatief meet Carten) this year and 4 of my cards made the cover.

I also made A LOT of show cards for Paper Nest Dolls and La-la land crafts. My cards were also featured twice on Hochanda TV (Sharon and Tv lady on the pic).

The most important thing that happened this year is that I finally got back to work. I work at amazing School and I love it. I have less time for crafting but that's ok too.

Even though it was a great year there was one thing that made me super sad and it still does. End of August I had to say goodbye to my 11 yr old cat. He was my cat from the second i saw him and I miss him a lot!

Here are some of my fav 2017 cards ...

That's all for this year!!! Thank you my dear friends for everything! Every view or comment means the world to me! Love you all!

I believe in Unicorns ♡ Swedish House Crafts DT

 Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for Swedish House Crafts design team. I absolutely love this Magnolia's image! It's called Unicorn Tilda and she was released as part of I believe in unicorns collection, 2017. On the inside of the card I used Unicorn with the text from the same release.

Both images were stamped using Tim Holtz - Stamping platform. There's a seperate post about it coming soon. I used Distress ink pads for colouring.

I tried this card design for the first time. It looks like an ordinary card but when you open it up, the back part looks like a box and inside it I added some clouds and Magnolia's Unicorn. 

Papers used are from Maja Design - Sofiero.

Dies used on this card:
