On the coffee cup (dies from Stampin'Up!) I added
this clover, that is made with the mini heart stamps
from Michael Strong and in the middle a sticky gemstone.

Coffee Addict stamp set. The image is colored

ideology serie and is colored with a green marker on
the outside of the ribbon.

I started  with making the background with these
3 colors of oxide ink with the direct to paper technique.

movers and shapers, distressed and after wrapping the 
Tim Holtz stripes a paper string around the card,

Club Scrap March kit: Daffodils

A new month, a new Club Scrap kit. 
This month the kit is called: Daffodils.
I love bulbs and this time of the year I always
buy little pots of these for inside and plant them later
in the garden in Autumn, so I have more and more bulbs
every year. They make it feel like Spring is on the way.

My scrap page is made with photoshop. As you can read from the 
journaling, iIam still not well. I had the flue for a long time,
I thought I was better and now I have this throat infection.
Outside it is very cold and and inside it is nice and warm,
sipping my tea with honey to get better soon!

You find the Club Scrap Daffodils hybrid kit HERE
for only $ 4,95!

All these images come with the hybrit kit.
Great for cards and scrapbooking.
Even if you are not handy with programs like 
photoshop, you can print, color and cut all the
images and make uo your own cards.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Club Scrap Steamworks linky party

This week I received the perfect picture to make a scrap page
for the linky party of Febuary's Club Scrap Steamworks images.
I used the digital Steamworks kit and photoshop to make this page. 

My grandson was in a museum with his other grandparents.
We share pictures in a family group and when I saw this,
I knew I had found the right picture for this month.

I am getting better using layers in Photoshop, now I need to learn
more about effects. I learned to color the background, but
would love to have a more gradient border. Step by step it is
getting better, but not as good as some I see day!

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
