New layout: Big news

Well - we have some big news...
The layout was created few weeks ago, using my counterfeit kit. But I didn't want to publish it yet....
Anyway - Now I want to publish it :-)
The picture was taken on the day we told the girls they should expect a bother or a sister (picture says: Don't Forget 05/2013)...
Like our first family picture as 4+...

I appreciate your comments :-)

Good Luck card

I got a phone call yesterday, asking me to create this card for someone at work, who's leaving after 20 (!!!!) years...
I saw this card and loved it - and created my version of it...
I used my counterfeit kit - mostly for the patterned papers - I thought that the colorful butterflies might be a good sign for new beginnings, saying goodbyes and such...
Clean as simple - my favorite style...

I appreciate your comments :-)

Ready to go... New layout

I created the background paper a while ago with acrylic paints and glimmer mists and from time to time I tried to see if I can use it, and gave it another rest...
This time - I used it to create my layout, that is inspired by challenge #6 (sketch challenge) @ Yotzot.
I used a picture I took almost 5 years ago... Amazing how the years go by...
Another challenge is the 2nd challenge of the counterfeit kit: Photo Focus... I took the picture of the layout on the same corner of the couch where Mor was sitting when I took the original photo. I think it's cute... Anyway - I added more pictures, for better view. Needless to say - I was using the papers from my counterfeit kit...

I appreciate your comments :-)

Nice to Meet... New layout

Few stories around this layout:
1. As you know I joined the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I knew that the inspiration layout is about to get published and I waited for it... While waiting - I saw a clue for the upcoming kit, and I found October kit (current kit) of the same company and started to build the kit... I created the layout and then realized the inspiration kit is September's kit.... I put this layout aside and started to collect another kit. I'm sure I'll use this one sooner or later.

2. At Practical Scrappers there's a challenge to use paper clip in a creative way... I twisted my paper clip into car shape, to match the subject of the layout. Though it's not very precise I like it :-)

3. The story behind the pictures: This is my second leasing car at the company I work for... I created this layout on the same day I let go the old car and got this one... I enjoy document the little things in life, the everyday, even though it's not meaningful...

I appreciate your comments :-)

With Love...

Another card, using the papers from my counterfeit kit.
This card was inspired by the card sketch of Unity's (August 2010 kit).
I added a stamp I created in Hebrew, says: with love...
What do you think?

My first pregnancy layout

Here's another layouts I created with the papers for my first counterfeit kit.
I found these nostalgic pictures, that were taken 8 1/2 years ago, when I was pregnant with Yaara.
We took each others pictures with a view to the sea of Galilee. Funny to remember how we looked like...
Many of the layouts I did recently (until the long break I had) had ink & acrylic paints stains - this time I took the chicken wire mask and sprayed it with glimmer mist.
I took pieces of papers, distressed them and layered them below the pictures.
I added this trim of lace in order to connect the 2 pictures.
I stamped the journaling lines and used brackets rub-on on one side.
I cut the title with my Silhouette - font 'Rochi Fun'.
I added strips of washi tape - and that's it...

I appreciate your comments :-)

There's no place like home card

Another card for Unity's challenge (for the WCMD event). This challenge was all about textures. Use Unity's stamps and add at least 2 different textures to your card.
So I did... First I created this scraps background paper - strips of papers (from my counterfeit kit). The textures I chose was the magic mesh and the bakers twine.
I stamped the little heart on a scrap of the blue paper and did a minor paper piecing...
Hope you like it :-)

Passover 2011 layout

After I chose the papers to my first counterfeit kit I created this layout, thinking about the 5th challenge of the new Israeli blog - 'Yotzot'. Where do you get your inspiration from...? I think I get inspired mostly from my everyday life... Sometimes I find myself taking pictures and thinking of the layout / papers / concept of  using these pictures to document our life in a way we would love to remember...
Anyway - this picture was taken on Passover eve 2011. The "famous song" Ma Nishtana? (what has changed) - I have a lot of things to say about it... It brings up many memories, not so good... Since I was the youngest child (and the youngest has to sing it - ask the questions) - I remember being stressed weeks before, trying to think how can I avoid it, trying to convince my brother to sing a long with me... Always thought I don't want to "make this show".
Now, as a mother, with 2 girls that LOVE to perform (every Friday eve they sing and dance to my parents) - I don't think they suffer from it, but I try to understand each and every time if they do it because they "must" or because they want to...

About the layout: I messed-up the title a little, didn't calculate the required space... oops
I added the butterflies - matching the same position on the papers - as a symbol for freedom (one of Passover's names).
I sewed (using my Sew Easy) the papers to each other - to add texture and interest to the page...

I appreciate your comments!

Honey.. I'm back :-)

Perhaps it was the longest break I've ever took from crafting / creating in the last few years...
I decided to join the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. It's harder than I thought. Maybe it will be easier if I do it more.
Anyway - This is the kit I have put together, I tried to get inspired by the designs / colors / patterns of the inspiration kit and make them match somehow in order for me to use it.

Now... Today is World Card Making Day (October 6th) and I waited for the challenges... Since unfortunately I don't live in the "right timezone" (somewhere in the US) - I will have to go to sleep soon, but I was able to join one of Unity's challenges: Shaped card (no simple rectangle, square, circle).
Here's my flower shape card:

I appreciate your comments :-)

New card: Happy new year

This is my example for something that can be done using bakers twine. For the Jewish calendar New Year's - I created this card, simulating the apple with bakers twine.
I think it's cute (although the apple is not centered **oops**)...
What do you think? I'd like to read your comments :-)

New card: Hexagons

The challenge at Practical Scrappers was to create layouts & cards featuring hexagons.
I created this Happy New Year card (and also this & this) and I enjoyed the result...
I also have this layout with hexagons...
So - what do you say?
By the way - the mess in the left side of the picture is caused by my camera, I think the lens has this blur area.. sorry!

I appreciate your comments :-)

New layout: green girl

I created this layout few weeks ago. Splash of color on the solid background paper, acrylic paint as border of the pictures, squares cut as triangles to create a chevron pattern... Sewed on patterned paper... Added embellishments - brads with matching colors (to my imagination theme: blue for the sky, green for the grass and brown for the ground?)....
Anyway - I love this pictures, taken ~7 years ago :-)

I appreciate your comments!
