Hi and Good Bye

Hello everybody,

today it’s my second and already last post on the Create a smile stage. There are a few personal reasons for my (harsh) decision to leave the designteam.

I’m so sad. I will miss all these most talented, kind, always helpful and so funny ladies of this wonderful team.

Last not least a big thank to Christine.

She let me be a part of it all. A part of the birth of her (our) baby called Create a smile. Christine, you are the best. I don’t know a lot people with so much talent and burning ambition. It’s thrilling. I learned so much from you. Thanks for your support. Always patient with me *lol*

Perhaps I can come back one day !? Who knows…

Stop! Now it’s enough. Otherwise I’ll start to cry.

Now here is my Project. It’s not a Card. It’s a little gift for someone who needs a break (myself? *lol*)

It’s a wrapping for bath salts. And bath salts fits perfect together with the bath tube from the stamp set Comfy. Or not?

Close shot:

I hope the different pictures explain how it works.

I have a die cut to create the package (with Bigshot). I glued the workpiece together and decorated it with twine (wink to Christine).

Then I attached the bath tube. To immitate water drops I used crystal effects.

That’s all.

Here with the bath salts behing the package:


And here the bath salts inside:


Hope you found some inspiration in my post today.

Thank you all for supporting me.

Take care of yourself.

Hello (gangster) – need a break?

Hello everybody,

here I am with my first post for Create A Smile.

I found some awesome inspirations during the last days. That’s why I created this card.
Oh – it’s not only a card. It’s a little gift. Because the card includes a button.

But first back to my inspiration. I would like to share it with you.

I got one inspiration from Christine. She made a card and I could not stop thinking about it. So I decided to create my beaver with this technique. And I LOVE it.  The other inspiration came from Jessa. On the Release Bog-Hop (I also used the beaver for my card then) she wrote that the beaver looks a little bit  like a gangster with his sunglasses. And she was sooooo right. That made me laugh out loud.

And like on the Release Bog-Hop  I used Comfy and Friends in the Woods.

Friends in the wood

Let’s have a look:  

You can see the card with the button on it here.

And here without the button. OOOOPS – suddenly the beaver is a gangster no more.
No way. He is a cute little guy yet.

Here’s an example what you can do with the button.
Maybe as a gift for a cute little (gangster) human-child??

Thank you for visiting my first DT post for  Create a smile. Hope you had fun!
Take care of yourself.
