LOC challange: include a sentiment

Time for a new inspiration at LOC

Sponsored by Ike's art (isn´t the bunny just cute)  I could not withstand to make one more blackhumoured project:

Stamps I used: de Stempelwinkel for the world clocks and Stop-sign; border: dylusions

ALWAYS use anything goes as long as your project can be classified as creepy, Steampunk, Halloween, Punk, Anime, Grungy, Goth, Dark, Horror. If not, you only have to include a sentiment. So let´s play together

Following Dylan Reavely on facebook is a great quote source - that´s one of them.
Hope I could bring a smile on your face. Have a happy day! XX

normal family

When I was thinking about the 4th Dylusion project for de Stempelwinkel I went through the stamps and discovered the saying about a "normal family" and this idea was born

Hope you have as much fun looking at it as I had creating.
This was my last offical project as a permanent DT member of de Stempelwinkel. But just in case you are wondering, I will be back sooner than you might think as guest designer for October.
What can I do - their stamps are just adorable - so I am glad I can return once in a while and be part of their great blog.

Yes, I guess I was again in a little bee mood - might be that I just like that new bee stamp :) - so here we go for another ALPHA/DICTIONARY CHALLENGE - Letter B at

digital images I used are from deviant scrap, my own handcarved stamps and some dylusions.

The background was made as an experiment: dylusion ink sprays meet pure alcohol. 

enjoy the rest of the weekend!

calender page week 28

Using some more of my patterned papers and having just finished to read a book, I thought that might be a great idea for my days of the week

Stamps used are from de Stempelwinkel for the words.

Hope you all had a good start into the week. XX

some more calendar pages

While journaling in my calendar I have realized that my prep pages had come to an end so I made one more today and  saw that I haven´´t shown you some others I made a while ago.

Here we go

playing with artchix

greetings from sizzix and Theesha Moore
using up some paperscrap - yes I know not really a new idea with the houses - but I really enjoyed all the houses I have seen lately from others and could not withstand. One does not always have to reinvent the wheel :)
As you see I still try to keep a daily journaling ritual - but more often than not I do 3 days at a time thinking, of my God-what did I do yesterday.
but what would good resolutions be without  exceptions - nobody´s perfect
Have a great weekend XX

Challenge 8 at LOC: dry or heat embossing- dilly beans

Time for another challange at Left of creative challange. This time we are sponsored by dilly beans and I have to admit it - I loved to work with this image (379-Ophelia's Heart )

I heat embossed my dylusion borders but I guess it´s hard to see but great to paint as heat embossed borders are very forgiving :)
Alphabet by Kaisercraft, borders by Dylusion

When I found the quote on facebook I knew I had to save it, I think it´s so true - at least for me, as  I am a very strong critic of myself, and therefore she is still under construction, learning every day...

a walk in the dschungel

I always wanted to try a highly structured background made with embossed papers. I was a lot of fun, brought me to undusting my embossing plates...

a walk in the park

All of us know that I really could not withstand to use my new Dylusions stamps just to create that scence

And there are situations in a parent´s life where we would have loved to have those earplugs...:)

Reading the topic "home" at I went googling and found this quote:

“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it- memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.” by Tad Williams. And the idea was born

And yes, I know, I made a spelling mistake - but mistakes happen...

Summer holidays

So come and join us at
