Hello! I missed you…

Hello Everyone!

Just wanna say you're Awesome!

Sorry for such long absence at my blog. I missed you… Did you miss me?

I want to start my back to blogging mood with the card that I made not long ago. I got my pre-order for July kit from The Greeting Farm (it was my birthday gift). I loved every image in this set and every sentiment.

For the layout of my card I followed awesome sketch from Jen’s blog.

I like how it turned out. It was nice to hold pencils, papers and stamps in hands again.

Thank you so much for stopping by and still remembering me!

Hugs,

Elena

 

Two from Mama Elephant

Hello everyone,

today I have two cards to share with you that I made for my friends’ birthdays.

I inked up two stamp sets from Mama Elephant, one from The Greeting Farm  and one from Lawn Fawn (for the Happy Birthday saying).

Do you like the shaker card? It is very popular in card making world now. :)

Panda Shaker Card

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me your kind words.

Hope I inspired some of you too today.

Всем привет!

Сегодня разместила две открытки, которые сделала своим друзьям на День Рождение.

Даже попробовала сделать открытку-погремушку. По-моему такие сейчас очень популярны в мире открыточников. :)

Спасибо большое, что заглянули ко мне на блог.

Надеюсь, что может кого-то и я сегодня вдохновила.

Обнимаю всех,

Лена

Sketch Challenges

Hello!

Today I would like to share with you two cards that I made inspired by two sketches from different blogs.

The first sketch is Sweet Sunday Sketch. I liked an idea with the circle in the middle of the rectangular part. Karen is so talented with the layouts. :)

Many Thanks

You may notice that I played with the same stamps -  one from My Favorite Things company (Pure Innocence Boy) and another is sentiment from Lawn Fawn (freebie that you get all the time you put an order with this lovely company). Not only same stamp was used, but also same paper pack (Basic Grey DP).

Second card was created following a sketch from Retro Sketches blog. I like the simplicity and style of this sketch. And it is always a treat to visit this blog and gave a look at awesome DT samples. :)

Many Thanks 2

Thank you so much for stopping by today. And HUGE thank you for your warm comments about my videos. I know that I need to learn more about videos overall (editing them, not being so nervous during recording time). I was so glad to hear and read nice and warm words about my first try. THANK YOU!!!

I will see you soon here, at the same place.

Wishing all beautiful day,

Elena

Привет!

Сегодня хочу показать вам две открытки, выполенные по разным скетчам. Возможно вы заметите, что на открытках использованы одни и теже штампы. Даже бумага из одного набора. Отличаются открытки размером и скетчами (как я уже говорила).

Первая открытка выполнена по этому эскизу с замечательного блога The Sweetest Thing. Мне очень понравилось как здесь расположен кружок внутри прямоугольника. Именно это натолкнуло меня на идею создания круглого окошка/отверствия.

Второй скетч с блога Retro Sketches. Мне этот блог очень нравится. Дизайнерская команда отличная и стиль у девчонок простой и очень сипматичный.

Вот, пожалуй и все на сегодня. Спасибо дорогие мои за ваши светлые комментарии. Оромное спасибо за комментарии к моим видео. Знаю, что мне еще работать и многому учиться надо в этом направлении. Очень ценю вашу доброту и отзывчивость. Спасибо!!! :)

Всем отличного дня!

До скорой встречи в моем рукодельном мире,

Лена

Many Thanks 3

 

Craft Videos

Hello to my blogging Friends!

How are you all doing? Hope everybody has a nice weather and enjoys a beautiful season of summer!

Over the past two day I have been busy recording a video where I showed some of my sewing projects.

I will need to work on my voice and speak a bit louder next time. No wonder my husband can’t hear me all the time and always ask me to repeat something to him. :)

If you like it, I will start working on new videos. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and spending some time with me.

Wishing all an amazing day,

Elena

Всем привет!

Как у вас дела мои дорогие? Надеюсь, что все у всех хорошо и вы наслаждаетесь летней погодой!

В последние два дня я увлеклась видеозаписью. В общем решила попробовать записать парочку видео и рассказать/показать свои рукоделки.

В следующий раз постараюсь говорить погромче. Слишком уж тихо  шептала в камеру. :)

Если вам видео понравится, то с удовольствием сочиню еще парочку короткометражных фильмов.

Спасибо большое за внимание и за то, что зашли в гости.

Всем волшебного дня,

Лена

From me to…

Hello!

I made this card fro two wonderful ladies at the Vision center who helped us with the eye prescription. Very knowledgeable and kind. Helped us through the whole visit, made us feel so welcome.

Thank you from Elena

I decided to send them a card as appreciation of their kindness and professionalism. I thought what stamp do I have that will fit perfect to this occasion. Thanks to The Greeting Farm stamp Elena. Not only this girl has the glasses (look almost like my new glasses), but she has my name too. :)

This card will participate in the Farm Fresh Friday challenge. All you need to do this week is make a card in honor of all the special ladies in our lives – moms, grandmas, a special caregiver, etc..

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments.

Hugs and smiles,

Elena

A Birthday Gift

Hello!

My son asked me if I can make a birthday gift for his friend at school. It was a big honor for me to make this.

I started wit the crochet cat. Design and pattern from Lilleliis.

Ami Kitty

Then I made a card using The Greeting Farm stamp set. I also followed sketch fro Sweet Sunday sketch.

For You Birthday

And to finish off, I sewed this cute pouch. Pattern from a spoonfullofsugar Etsy shop. I added a handle to it, so you can use as a little bag.

Привет!

Вот такие вот косметички у меня получились после того как я увидела мастер-класс в магазине a spoonfullofsugar.

Первую с тематикой Парижа сшила учительнице сына по французскому.

А вторую просто так, наверное от того что ткань понравилась.

Всем спасибо за внимание. :)

Пока,

Лена

Puppy 2

Привет!

А у меня сегодня очередная поделка – игрушка крючком по схеме от Lilleliis. Обожаю ее игрушки и магазинчик. Челевек на самом деле талантливый.

Сделан этот щеночек из пряжи хлопка и акрила. На лапках отделка из хлопчато-бумажной ткани.

Надеюсь, вам понравился этот песик.

Спасибо большое за ваше внимание и комментарии. :)

Обнимаю всех,

Лена

Hello!

It is Friday already and it means it is time for Inky Paws Challenge at Newton’s Nook Designs blog.

This month it’s a color challenge, using a Spring Bouquet as inspiration. Looking for the colors - Pale Pink – Yellow – Lilac – Soft Green. Just lovely! :)

NND_IPC09_color

I chose to play with couple of stamps which are Versatile Vases (solid flowers), Love Grows (hearts) and Sweetheart Tails (xoxo). The design of the card is simple, I really wanted to show what you can do with the different stamps by putting them in one card.

NND Color Challenge

Jennifer shared some free digital stamps at her blog. Why not to try?
