Art of gift giving / Arta de a darui

For today I have for you 3 styles of embellishing a little paper bag. Please see the pictures and if you have any other questions please write them in the comments down below. The rest of the post will be in Romanian.

Se apropie zilele mele preferate din an si cu aceasta ocazie va propun 3 stiluri diferite in care puteti impacheta micul martisor pe care il aveti pregatit. Pentru aceste pungute mici de cadou am folosit produse DACOart. Daca va plac produsele lor puteti sa ii urmariti si pe facebook.

Pentru o punguta romantica am folosit o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), abtibilde cu glitter din setul Fagurele pentru ele (AB013) si am facut o floare folosind Hartie de matase pastel (HR916) si o perlucea (AD183).

Pentru o punguta jucausa am folosit o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), nasturei (AD186) si setul de benzi de hartie Lipeste-ma distractiv (AD209)

Pentru o iubitoare de carti am ales sa decorez o punguta in stil vintage si am folosit  o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), o bucata de hartie dintr-o carte foarte veche, sfoara din bumbac si dantela. Eu am folosit o dantela din colectia mea de dantele dar gasiti si la cei de la DACO dantele autoadezive pe care le puteti folosi.

Sper ca v-au placut propunerile mele. Duminica minunata sa aveti!



Pom pom coasters

Have you prepared your gift for Valentine’s already? What is it? Can you share? Is it handmade or not? I am looking forward to here your answers.

We don’t celebrate Valentine’s here in Romania but we have our own tradition called “Dragobete”. For this year I have prepared something fun and simple to make. I think handemade gifts are the best. So with no further ado here is my small gift: a pair of pom pom coasters since both me and my hubby are coffee drinkers. 

There were very easy to make. You just need some pom poms, glue and 2 round shapes of heavy card stock.

Hope you enjoyed my little gift and you will give it a try.


Monogram from scrap paper

If you are like me, I bet you have a drawer full of tiny little scrap papers that you don’t want to throw away so I thought I would share with you this little home decor piece.

I made this frame for my little boy’s room and he loves it. I used only scraps that match with his room and also have included some 7dots stickers and embellishments.

Hope you like my idea and if you want to be up to date with my posts don’t forget to subscribe.


Happy New Year!/La multi ani 2017!

Happy New Year! I wish you all a happy, prosperous, full of achievements new year! May all your wishes come true!

For this post I want to present you a cute and easy cake topper. I again used products from a Romanian Company but you can make a similar one with what you have on hand.

La multi ani! Va urez un an nou fericit, prosper, plin de succese! Sa vi se implineasca toate dorintele!

De aceasta data va propun un decor de tort dragut si usor de realizat. Pentru acesta am folosit produse DACOart pe care le puteti gasi aici.

Acest cake topper este foarte simplu de realizat. Aveti nevoie de 2 bete pentru frigarui, 2 stelute cu bumb (AD227), multisararita glitter (PU050), silipici (LC050), foarfeca birou (FF101) si snur din bumbac. Stelutele cu bumb au o parte adeziva. Folositi acea parte adeziva pentru a lipi sclipiciul de culoarea dorita. Tip: folositi-va de o coala de hartie pe care sa o puneti sub steluta pentru a nu imprastia sclipiciul peste tot. Astfel, sclipiciul in surplus poate fi adunat inapoi in sararita.

Dupa ce aveti pregatite stelutele, le lipiti pe sfoara folosind silipici si apoi lipiti sau legati sfoara de betele de frigarui. Este foarte simplu si foarte de efect pentru decorarea oricarui fel de tort, chiar si cel raw vegan.

Dragi Ioni si Ioane care imi cititi blogul va urez La multi ani! de ziua voastra si va invit virtual la o felie de tort! Pe curand!


Ornament bradut / Tree ornament

Dear friends, today’s article will be in Romanian because I will be speaking about a Romanian brand of crafting supplies.

Dragi prieteni, articolul de azi va fi in limba romana pentru ca va voi vorbi de un brand romanesc in matrie de produse de hobby. Azi va voi prezenta idei de ornament de brad folosind produse DACOart. Pe cei de la DACOart puteti sa ii urmariti si pe facebook aici. V-am mai povestit si cu alta ocazie despre ei. Daca nu ati citit articolul va invit sa o faceti, il gasiti aici

Pentru ornamentul in forma de bradut pe care vi-l prezint azi aveti nevoie de hartie de diferite nuante si texturi, decorici mici (AD219), perlucele (AD183), snur de bumbac si foarfeca de birou (FF101).

De aici incolo este foarte simplu. Decupati din hartie cat mai multe cercuri de marimi diferite, le franjurati cu lama de la foarfeca, le mototoliti si apoi le faceti pe mijloc o gaura. La final, se asambleaza bradutul pe snurul de bumbac de la cel mai mic la cel mai mare cerc. In varf se decoreaza cu stelute rosii si perlute.

Va urez sarbatori minunate alaturi de cei dragi! Craciun Fericit!


Christmas Tree Ornaments

In Romania we have a crafting group and forum called “Exprima-te very scrap!”. And each month one of us is the sponsor and gives a theme to the other girls in the group.For september Gabriela challenged us to create some christmas tree decoartions. Here are my creations.DSC_3143DSC_3142 DSC_3140 DSC_3137 DSC_3136 DSC_3133 DSC_3132

Since I first saw Tammy Tutterow’s Art Banners I knew I had to make one some day. That day came and it was on Sunday morning when inspiration hit me and I started the project. I finished it the same day so happy me.


The banner was made for a Romanian scrapbook challenge held on the Very Scrap forum. The theme was to create a  part of a banner which will be put together with the other banners made for that challenge and hanged in the sponsor’s craft room. Great idea, right?

So with no further ado here is my master piece:

DSC_9794I don’t own a sewing machine yet so I had to improvise. I adhered the fabric to a piece of card stock to add more strength to it. Then I used distress sprays to add color to the otherwise white fabric. The fabric already had the newspaper print. I added some texture with a stencil and some texture paste.

DSC_9790DSC_9799The flowers are die-cut with the Tattered Floral die from Tim Holtz. They are made in layers from fabric,lace and burlap. Love the look of them.DSC_9789


Hope you liked my project for today. Thanks for stopping by!

The other day I was telling you I have another project in progress using the Polish Kit Project. I finally finished it and I can show it to you.

DSC_9460It is my first ever shadow box and I am very pleased with how it turned out. This particular shadow box is from and it was part of the Polish Kit Project for the month of June.

As you can see I am pretty in love with this kit as I already made 2 projects. I am planning to do a card also in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by!



Cupcake box

I was baking the cupcakes the other day and wanted to give some to my neighbor too so I was thinking in a nice packaging is better. So I made dis box for 2 cupcakes. I used some Tilda papers for it and some Wild Orchid Flowers.
