NB Hobby & Art tutorials

Hello!
Hope all is well! :)

I'm sharing some projects that I did for NB Hobby (NB Hobby's webpage got a facelift!! LOVE it!!)...for my project I did a paper piecing tutorial...just a simple card to demonstrate paper piecing...you can find this tutorial here. It's in Croatian but I do believe that soon the NB Hobby webpage will have an English option too!

Ovaj 'Paper Piecing' tutorijal možete naći tu.


This cute owl is from our you're a hoot! stamp set (which is also available at NB Hobby)



Here's some sneak peeks of another step by step tutorial I did for NB Hobby. I just wanted to show my process when doing a layout...this one is of my daughter. Don't have a tag die..make your own!! :) This heart stamp is from my you're a hoot! stamp set.

Još jedan tutorijal 'Scrapbook layout' za NB Hobby! Nemate 'tag' nastavak... jednostavno možete si napraviti sami... ovaj srce pečat je iz 'You're a hoot!' set koji možete naći ovdje.


I LOVE layering and adding different textures to my work and if you're just starting out at scrapbooking I think using black and white photos make it easier to work with your papers and other elements.

OBOŽAVAM raditi sa slojevima, dodavajući različite teksture mojim radovima, a ako ste tek početnik u scrapbookingu mislim da korištenje crno-bijele fotografije olakšava rad s papirima i ostalim elementima. 




Don't be afraid to draw/write your own embellishments...I simple wrote my text out and drew a little border and drew up a cute little arrow. I don't particularily like my hand writing but it makes it so much more personal.

Nemojte se bojati crtati / pisati vlastite ukrase... Jednostavno sam napisala tekst i nacrtala ukrasni rub, i izradila slatku malu strelicu. Ne sviđa mi se osobito moj rukopis, ali to čini moj rad mnogo osobniji. 



Here's the finished layout...all the materials I used can be found at NB Hobby for the full tutorial go here!

Evo kako izgleda rad... svi korišteni materijali se mogu naći u trgovini NB Hobby, cijeli tuorijal možete naći ovdje


Have a great day!!

strawberries and hyperpigmentation



Hello!

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend! It's cooled down here in Zagreb...rain....but nevertheless we had a little barbecue action yesterday and our strawberries from the garden and ready to be picked so...........


I made my simple lemon cake (recipe here) which tastes amazing with some whipped cream and strawberries!



Jumping from strawberries to skin care :)  I have sensitive combination (very dry and redness on the cheeks)...so I have been searching for a cleanser that wouldn't dry out my skin but deep clean it....long story short I started using coconut oil and HELLO!!!! I LOVE LOVE it! My skin has improved....not as red or irritated....takes off make up! There are different ways of cleansing your face with coconut oil (you can google it) I'm too lazy to do most of the methods I read about..... all I do is slather on some coconut oil, massage it into my skin and wipe off with a cotton pad and repeat (depending on how much make up I've got on my face)...then I rinse my skin with warm water and dry...usually I would have to slap on moisturizer before my skin cracked off (felt so tight)...not anymore!! I just put on my serum and that's it!! I have a jar of coconut oil in my pantry and in my washroom...health benefits are amazing (google it...try it!). Oh...and I use the Bioderma to take off my eye make up.




Speaking of serum I recently received my first Michael Todd order (I have read so many great reviews that I just had to try it out for myself). I ordered the vitamin C serum and the Avocado and Mango mask.




First I have to say the odering and shipping process was great (I live in Croatia)!!!
So far I'm really enjoying these products (that are targeted for pigmentation problems/ sun damage)...the Vitamin C serum smells yummy...not overwhelming and the smell goes away. The mask also smells good enough to eat!! :) It tingles slightly on the skin...doesn't hurt or burn at all....so far I'm loving these products but it's only been about a little over a week so I'll make sure to do an update.






I will be purchasing RoC's Soleil Protexion (Anti Brown Spot fluid)...I heard good things about this one and having hyper pigmentation issues I'm hoping this will help!


Well..that's it for strawberries and my skin issues! lol
Hope you enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Happy Mother's Day

Mom

Hello!

It's Friday and it's almost Mother's Day! I miss my mama...wish I could be with her...haven't seen her in two years. :(

I made this card for her. I used my Daffodils, Geometric Patterns and Special Day stamp sets, coloured the daffodils with Graph'it markers (looks much prettier in real life).




Be on the watch for a Jane's Doodles Mother's Day sale! :)
Have a great weekend!

Happy first of May!!

I created this card using my Doodle Flowers, Suzi and Fly High stamp sets.
Did some shadow stamping (I used the back of my big cloud stamp) and some paper piecing.




I just LOVE this tag stamp from my Life is Good stamp set!!!


Have a great day!
