Happy 17th Wedding Anniversary

... to my husband and me! 

Each year it´s a special challenge for me to make a card for my husband - that´s how it turned out this year:

... I couldn´t resist to include at least a small amount of "glitz" ...

... the inside holds a small envelope with a voucher on the back ...

Both envelopes were ready in a breeze with my new Envelope Punch Board!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Summer Heat

Meteorologists prognosticate that today may be the hottest day of the year …. Maybe 40°C (104°F)! That´s awfully hot for Austria!
To cool down, I´m daydreaming of our vacation at the Mediterranean seaside …. I created a necklace for our holiday using pearls in the colors of the sea… what I love most is the time of the day, when the sun starts to sink and causes the surface of the water to glitter and sparkle…. Therefore I chose a chandelier glass drop with some rhinestones as focal piece of the necklace…
Here´s my “come true daydream”:

Enjoy these summer days!

One for Mum

My parents are always the first ones to see my new creations. When I showed them my necklace ( see last blog post), my Mum meant, that it is perfect for me indeed - but the dark pearls wouldn´t suit her neck. I dissented and so we tried it out in front of the mirror. To cut a long story short – she was wrong, I was right! My necklace fitted her perfectly!
So I rushed home and made one for her… here´s my newest creation (I used a vintage rhinestone piece from the fleamarket, which was an earring in former times):

 I already gave it to her - and she loves it!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Vintage inspired Jewelry

I guess, this is my new passion: vintage inspired jewelry... I love to combine pearls and old rhinestone pieces!

This is my 2nd try on this:

I think these vintage inspired jewelry pieces are so gorgeous to wear - not only in the evening, but also during the day to jazz up a casual outfit, don´t you agree?!

Thanks a lot for all your lovely comments on my first piece, the bracelet!

Have a nice Sunday!

Ok, no papercrafting for the moment here at my little studio - I turned myself to a new (old) passion: jewelry!

I found some gorgeous rhinestone pieces at a flea market ...  I took one of those and added some pearls, that I bought in Italy...  this will be my favourite bracelet for spring and summer 2013! For sure!


Thanks for stopping by today!

"All That Glitters"(CAS-ual Fridays)  ... the perfect challenge for me ... I love all things glittery and sparkling!!

I needed sort of a "gift card" for my Dad - and made a pouch with a monogram of his first name:

Longing for Spring

People in Austria are definitely longing for spring! It´s so cold here - and we even had new snow last week *brrr*   I hope spring will win out over winter soon!

My parents invited us for lunch yesterday and we brought a small treat for them in this gift bag (I´ve seen so many people doing these bird´s nests on youtube - now I tried them myself):

Both images are from the Graphics Fairy.

I´d like to enter my bag into these three challenges:

Handmade embellishment


From a quite boring paperbag to a really eye-catching one by just attaching one simple white flower with a rhinestone center...

- a variation: a smaller flower backed with some polkadot paper -

I think this fits also into this challenge: Sarah Hurley Challenge blog: Anything but a card.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

More than 10...

 Create a paper crafted card that uses 10 or more embellishments in an innovative way.

I was in the mood for a clean and simple card:

...15 clear, white and blue rhinestones and pearls on this card!
