Fancy bookmark

Hello there crafters!
I hope you all had a great start of 2015. I bought a book as gift for a friend the other day and I wanted a bookmark to go with it, so I took out my Spellbinders dies (Detailed Scallops), a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Textiles) and here is what I came up with. I used black & white carstock and a Sizzix die and stamp set (Parfumerie) with nice and very feminine perfume bottles which I love. I added an eyelet and some ribbon and the bookmark was done. And could glitter be missing on a thing like this? Naaah! :D So I promptly added some Stickles to the bottle top.

The weekend is just around the corner, so enjoy it and hopefully it's a creative and crafty one!

Hugs, Vittoria

Happy New Year!

Hello there crafters!
I'm awfully sorry for not posting for quite some time but, as you know, life is always horrendously busy here and spare time very limited, unfortunately! :( Anyway, I just wanted to share one last project for this year: some super cute mailboxes which I made for Christmas and filled with lots of chocolate goodies (mainly Ferrero Rochers, my all-time favourites!). The mailboxes are cut out with a Sizzix die - as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it! It was a bit expensive but I know I'll be using it a lot, as that kind of box can be used for just about any occasion. Just change the designer paper you cover it with et voilà, you're good to go. Of course you can decorate it as much as you like. I kept my Christmas ones pretty simply  mainly because of lack of time. I just added a poinsettia dimentional flower I created with my Spellbinders poinsettia dies and that was it.

I wish you all a wonderful and creative 2015 - hope I'll have more time for my crafting and blogging actvities in the New Year!! :D

Hugs,
Vittoria
