Winter mini book

Winter came back, so I quickly finished my winter mini book. :)) (Its title: Snow-album)

I used papers from winter kit of scrap.hu, printable elements of my winter digi kit (hungarian version) printed on A5 sheet and Wordle.net's word-cloud generator.

Base of the album is my own idea and creation. I cut the appropriate shape from a thick cardstock, 3 times the same. There are also simple circle sheets and 2 foil sheets. I rotated the sheets (60° for 6 ears, 45° for 8 ears) and made holes for the ring. Foil and circle sheets do not put to trouble. :)

Front and back cover pages: (silver marker, bracket punch, snowflake punches, acryl snowflake, letter stamps)

First pair of pages: (printable embellishments, snowflake punches, brad)

Second pair of pages: (brad, ribbons, foil sheet with white snowflakes)

Third pair of pages: (acryl snowflake, printable embellishments, snowflake punches)

Fourth pair of pages: (snowflake punches and stamps, printable embellishments, button, brad)

Fifth pair of pages: (snowflake punches, word clouds tag, button, word label punch, foil sheet with white comments)

Last pair of pages: (brad, acryl snowflake, snowflake punches, arrow shape commentstamp)

Easter card -DT

When I got into Simon's DT and I chose a stamp set, I came to like this piece of Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set very much. It reminds me of easter eggs. (In Hungary at Easter Monday boys sprinkle girls, who give red painted eggs in return.)
I have a plenty of ideas to create with this stamp, this card is only a simple "apetizer", painted with watercolor pencil.

Card basic: Hero Arts Card Bright White;
Paper: Carolee's Creation Adornit;
Stamp: Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set
Ribbon: Making Memories

Scrapscene-Valentine project

It's a great pleasure to me that Scrapscene published my heart shape truffles box and card as a Valentine project. :))
Thank you.


I've made a new hybrid kit for scrap.hu. This time the theme was Love & Valentine.

In addition to traditional red I put pink, and I could not omit my favourite green. I created a damask pattern paper too. It's very trendy and anyway I like fabric patterns very much.
As this is a a hybrid kit, it also contains a printable pdf file for traditional paper scrappers.

Use it for your pleasure!

Triangle tri fold card DT

A card again.
I do not disclose who I created for, because there are so many friends of mine, who have birthday or name day in this part of year. :))

Papers: red cardstock, Making Memories
Stamp: Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set

This is a triangle tri fold card. The base cardstock is 9 cm x 27 cm (9cm x 9cm after folding).
The two Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set stamps are hindering the card from opening spontaneously. Stick them to the base the way they lock each other when the card is closed. It's empty inside, as the message is a secret yet.

Valentine project DT

We don't celebrate Valentine's day on 14th of February. We do on any day. :)) For example today. :))
This project has 3 origins:
1. When I made some box templates, I had an idea of a heart shape box.
2. I want to make truffles since ages. Mályvacsiga recently sent me a a good recipe of it.
3. As a member of Simon Says Stamp DT I chose SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set to work with.

So the brainchild was assembled: "Let's make a heart shape box with Simon's stamp on it and fill with truffles." Below you can see the outcome. Box + truffles + card as a bonus.

Papers: BasicGrey Blush Romance and Stella Ruby, K & Co Hannah,
red cardstock;
Making Memories red ribbon
Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set
button, ink

There is a part of my favourite poem on the card:

"Warm water's running, there's a bath by and by!
Here is a towel, now get yourself dry!
The meat's on the oven, and you will be fed!
There where I lie, there is your bed."
(Attila József: Ode -Envoi
Translate: Ozsváth Zsuzsanna and Frederic Turner)

You can follow box creation steps here:

Recipe for truffles:
20 decagrams of dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids
1.5 decilitres of heavy cream
Bourbon vanilla powder
30 grams of butter
small size orange peel chips (outer skin only) -optional
a small amount of alcoholic drink -optional

Boil cream with vanilla powder, set aside and let cool.
Melt chocolate with butter over steam. Add chocolate, orange peel and alcoholic drink to cold cream and mix them. Pour it into a form. (p.e.: heart shape)
Put to refrigerator to harden for a day. Take out from form and roll in cocoa powder.

My card and box are for Basic Grey's Hearts challenge.
