Christmas Cards & Maya Codices ATC' s

Lori Hairston was working with my Christmas Collections, and she did
these stunning Soldered Ornaments:

Can it already be December 12th?  Wow - just 13 more days 'til Christmas!  I finally did some soldering - I've had no time to do it - but I had to get in there to finish some ornaments.  Every year I do about 10 ornaments for a friend of mine.  I make them from the photo cards people send her.  I would have never thought of that - they make a great gift!  So...while I was making those for her, I created some for myself.



I used vintage images from Nicecrane Designs.  The santa above is from the Vintage Santa Vol IV collection.  And the santa below is actually from a tea bag pocket from the Christmas Tea Bag Wrappercollection.  I just used the picture portion instead of the whole pocket.




And this has to be one of the cutest vintage images ever!




I love it!  I'm going to make it into a Christmas card next year.   It is one of the images from

I am also a comic fan,,,,,so This time I was inspired by famous one called
"Cañari" by C. Meglia working with my new  Maya Codices Paperpack:




Written expressly for him, this story was created to showcase Meglia's strengths.

An ancient Mayan civilization in a lush jungle paradise. A young girl, Canari, takes care of her little brother and sister, discovers golden treasure, escapes a jaguar, encounters an army of the undead, and opens a dimensional portal.

Meglia's best work and his most beautiful by far. In 2005, he created the series 'Canari' with Crisse. Carlos Meglia passed away, at the top of his game, on 15 August 2008 at the age of 50.


My ATC a tribute to this Carlos Meglia
And 2012 "The End of The World" ATC Series

Linda was working with my "So Adorable Christmas DSL" and she did
a really different and stunning way to use a digi stamp:

This is a little bag I decorated with the help of gel medium, mists, stamps and the wonderful image from Nicecrane Desings..

In addition to the image I have used Fireworks Sprays, Petaloo Flowers, Promarkers to color with, some stickels, Memory Box dies from the swirls, prima bling and Petaloo flowers.. The ribbon on top is Hug Snug colored with the mists used on the bag..


Click on the wonderful image under her to go right to the fab shop over at Nicecrane Studios and pick up you stamps for all those wonderful christmas projects.. (you also get them in a colored version)... Enjoy..

Maya Codices Paperpack & New Christmas Releases


Mayan Calendar says The World will end on December 21, 2012.


On December 21, 2012, the Mayan Calendar's 13th Baktun cycle will end. On this date, the world as we know it will also change. So it should. This is the natural order of our universe. It is the order of all things. Yet, despite the fact that change is normal and expected in everything that we know, there is a tremendous amount of anticipation for this one upcoming date of December 21, 2012 in particular. The reasons are many, both good and bad. For some, December 21, 2012 is the beginning of a new era, where humanity will evolve to a greater understanding of our place in the universe. To others, it is the much prophesied Apocalypse, or the doomsday end. Ironically, for most of the living decendents of the ancient Maya themselves, it's just the end of another calendar cycle or simply another day.

the family


 Inspired on these actual events,,,,I have designed a new 

Maya Codices  A2 Papepack 

I hope December 21 Th not to be The End of The World...woww.,woww.

Take a close-up view to some papers on the pack






And here some samplers playing with famous characters and
Maya papers....I hope you enjoy them.

Amazing New Christmas Cards & Edith Holden


Margreet  from my DT has just sent me an gorgeus and colorful Christmas Card working
with my "Vintage Christmas Scenes I" ...so adorable,,,, love it,,,and her coloring is so
unique, thanks a million Margreet.



Adorable and Sweetie card by Margreets-Scrapcards
I finally found the time to make a card with the Nicecrane DesignsChristmas Scenes Collections. I coloured with distress inks and die cut with a nestabilitie. I put some gauze beneath it. The leaves are made with a Tim Holtz die, I put some Glossy Accents on them and afterwards I made the veins with the picket fence distress marker. The threefold bow is made with the bowdabra and I put some jinglebells in between. The rosettes are also made with a Tim Holtz strip die and I put some buttons from my stash on top. I had a leftover of the rosette and stapled it as a mouse stairs (don't know if this is a correct English word). The 2 stars are splitpins and as finishing touch a metal corner at the top.

Detailed View (Coloring. I love these all  soft pastel tones, Margreet)) 

Lisa Minckler also was working with adorable collection and she did
These absolutely stunning
Soda Bottles Candy Jar

I really love  Creativity by Lisa,,,,,she is always innvovating anc creating
such great works,,,, .They are a MUST-HAVE as inspiration for any crafter.



To begin, I've had the honor of using the gorgeous vintage images from Nicecrane Designs and this little girl dancing with her dolled up cat is from  Vintage Christmas Scenes DSL II

I try to purchase as little as I can of glass items from the commissary, as they are not recycled in this area, but in the rare case that I have to, I prefer to save them for using sometime down the road.  Well, the road ended and I found the opportunity to make a couple Soda Bottle Candy Jar and Card Gift Sets.

The process began by cleaning and removing labeling. Once done, I made an oval masking of contact paper and placed it on the jar where I wanted a etched look.  Using Armour Etch Glass Cream, I applied it to the oval area and let sit for five minutes. Rinsing this off, what remained was a clear glass jar with a center etched  area, all ready for a wonderful vintage image.  The image I colored was then scanned, down sized on the computer, shape changed to an oval and then when done, added directly to the etching with Mod Podge.

Acrylic white paint was then sponged about a 1/4" away from the etching to show a little clear glass, and then the entire remaining surface was dabbed white. Little wooden knobs were glued to the bottom as well for some more character. When dry, an acrylic clear coat was sprayed to protect the paint.  Decorations were then added to coordinate.


A tag comes with the Soda Glass Candy Jar as well and matches the components used on the jar.

Here is the matching gift card, still using the same elements found on the jar and the tag.  This is the original image that I colored in copics, that was sized down in the computer to fit on the jar.  A little crotchet doily I made to fit on the card as I was using the Mojo Monday #271 sketch for inspiration. 

That was one for a girl and now, one for a boy!

The same exact technique was employed for this set as well.
Using the wonderful image from Nicecrane Designs again in the set

I carried out the western scene as this little lad is propped on his horse getting his hat ready to ride while his side kick awaits.

 The matching gift card that also uses the same image and the sketch from Mojo Monday.
For a little extra fun, I paper pieced actual newspaper onto his hat for a more realistic look.  
So happy you stopped in today and I hope you've found a little inspiration in these items.  Also, a very warm welcome to my newest followers and thank you always for the kindest messages you leave me.
Hugs n' Happy Crafting to you all,
Lisa xx

Mitra Lee  was working with my Edith Holden Collections,,,,,and she did
a stunning Scrap Layout,,,,,OMG I adore it,,,,,


Miracles Momma Designs Sketch: SEEDS


In this case, I actually used images from one of my favorite digital shops and printed out my own.

I posted about my new garden the other day and decided to make a page about it. I found when we moved, all the little things I had done at the old house suddenly became memorable and special.

Although this garden is in the rough stages right now, I'm really enjoying the feeder I can see out the window! Hence the title of "SEEDS" as the garden is really only being started and the birds are crazy fiends when it comes to those sunflower seeds!

Used a really great Heather Landry Sketch. I thought it was a super cool one for showcasing some paper.





Ignacio at Nicecrane has an ability for finding some really cool vintage images to use!
The colors on these images are subtle, yet have some really bright colors that I wanted to match with my flower spray.



There is a 
Lizzy Hill bloom on there and also two from Eye Candy Magic. The cute little cake on top of the Washi tape was recycled off a birthday card sent to me from my friend Kristy. Since my birthday is rolling around AGAIN, I figured it was safe to use.

But that is not all,,,,she also was working at:

SPECIAL THANKS TO WENCHE
FOR THIS PLAY OF ART


By the same method as the advent calendar I made ​​last year, I have made ​​a yearly calendar. B
ased on paper bags, kalenderark from the Paper Design and motifs Nice Crane Designs . HERE you can read a bit about the binding and see basically the calendar. Decorated with some miscellaneous, among other lace napkins, flowers, pearls sheets mostly from Pion and Kaiser Kraft. bags have the opening to the short sides and the opening is on alternating right and left of each month. Some bags can eg put lists of monthly birthdays, memories of the month if you want to keep the calendar as a sort årsdagbok. Possibly you can change the month sheets and use the calendar for several years, with this in mind, I have chosen not to put so much decoration of the calendar sheets, so they should be easy to replace. they gorgeous digital motifs from Nice Crane Designs can be found here :Children in the Victorian Age IV CS Children In The Victorian Age III WencheJ_Carla Craft products are distributed in Norway by Global Hobby Art and Global Craft & Art sells hobby and art materials to retailers in Norway.
