Jane's Doodles in the UK

Hope all is well!!

We finally got snow here in Zagreb....LOVE! A pain to travel in but nonetheless I LOVE! :)

Last Saturday my kids went to a birthday party so I made this fun card using my Mr. Smiles digital stamp and the sentiment is from my Croatian Sentiments stamp set (available at NB Hobby & Art). For the background I used our Jungle Baby stamp set....those dots and circles are too fun! :)

I printed the monster onto green cardstock and then with a green Graph'it marker coloured the horns and feet...you really can't colour on cardstock (blending and all that) but to add a darker tone it's great. I also added some green glitter to the horns and coloured in the teeth and parts of the eyes with my white gel pen.

I got a little something for the birthday boys sister too...

I also got great news for all those living in the UK and would love to get their hands on some Jane's Doodles stamps!! JD stamps are now available at Craft Mojo! :)

Hope you have a great day!

P.S. pop by the JD blog and check out Renee's sweet card and the winner of our stamp release blog hop! :)

JD stamp release blog hop

Welcome to another Jane's Doodles stamp release blog hop! It's off to a late start (so sorry...computer issues of coarse) anyways we've released two sets drawn by moi! :)

Jungle Baby 

When I was drawing my Butterflies set I knew I wanted this set to be a positive one for us women, one that we can use for our moms, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, aunts, grandma's.....and one day I was watching the lovely Pixiwoo sisters interviewing Caroline Hirons (skin care expert) and when she said 'Aging is a privilege' I literally said out loud YES!!!!!!!!! I believe one should take care of themselves, of their skin, bodies inside and out but to apologize for my wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, large pores....bla bla...we women need to support each other  to feel comfortable and happy in our own skin. I contacted the wonderful Caroline and asked if I could quote her and she said yes!....you can watch the interview here and check out Caroline's blog here!

Here's a card I created using both sets....

One of my new year's resolutions is to send out more happy mail!! I bought these Moleskine notebooks and stamped butterflies all over...I will be sending these out to some friends in the mail.

I also will be sending this set of thank you cards to a friend I met on line who is expecting a baby and thought it would be nice to surprise her. I'm sure she will be receiving gifts for her baby and it would be nice to send out thank you cards (I will be making three more). For these cards I used our Jungle Baby and Big Sentiments stamp sets.

I've announced that I'll be holding a workshop Feb.1 and this is one of the projects we'll be doing with the Jungle Baby (Croatian set). I paper pieced the lion. :)

Also our you're a hoot! clear stamp set is also available as a digital set now!

Ok...now off to hop!! Check out what our awesome DT created with our new stamps as well as our super talented Guest Designer Laura!! :) Leave comments for a chance to win these two sets as well as the digi set!

I'm so so so sorry about the confusion but it's all my fault...when I gave my DT the info and time for our hop today I said 10 am my time and I meant 4 pm my time!!!!!!! So please forgive me and I will have my post and the Jane's Doodles blog post ready in a bit!!!!!!!!

Hope all is well! 

This year Ikea is opening it's doors in Croatia (Zagreb)....finally!!! We use to go to Austria's Ikea to shop which actually wasn't too bad...it was like a road trip. Ikea should be open I believe this spring/summer. My friends went to the Ikea in Austria last month and brought me back a catalogue...I've got my wish list people! I also went on line to check what else they've got.

Our home is far from done....our porch is unfinished...our living room, kitchen/dining room need new furniture. The most pitiful room has to be our living room...it looks like a BAD garage sale! LOL! It's a mish mash of old hand me downs...just old and out dated....we do hope to buy new furniture but any home improvements have come to a full stop...the recession in Croatia just won't let up and seems to keep getting worse so...I figured I would put these pictures up in hope that one day they can be my reference to the 'Before' photos! One good thing about our living room is I don't care if the kids spill anything! :)

This photo is taken from my hall way....

And this one from our kitchen/dining room....I hate our TV situation (first of all...are we the only ones who still don't own a flat screen! LOL)...it's too high and not comfortable to watch....

I really LOVE these rugs...perfect colour and size for our living room

I like the shape of this sofa...not sure about the colour...the colours we like are very neutral and I LOVE texture....

Also I really like this.......

LOVE this chair!!!

And here are other goodies that caught my eye.....you can find all the links on my Pinterest here.

Anyhow...make sure to pop by the Jane's Doodles blog to check out Mariana's adorable card!
Have a great day!

free 3x4 printable cards


My laptop has gone bananas...I can't get onto blogger and blog so I'm writing this blog off my phone! I love the idea of Project Life....I really want to do it only getting the album and sleeves to ship to Croatia is impossible (on Amazon) or the shipping costs are too expensive.  Anyways I'm thinking about some Valentine's projects and made two 3x4 cards.....I created both in photoshop.

So I thought they were cute enough to share them with you....feel free to right click on the images and save....and print! :)
Ok...I'm signing off...blogging with my phone is driving me bananas!  :)

Bundle of Joy


Hope you all had a lovely weekend! My kids still have this week off (we don't have March break here... I would rather have two weeks off during Christmas and than a week off in March..but oh well)...and I'm feeling much better so I'm going to try and make up for not spending time with them when I was sick! So today I'd like to share a little sneak peek of some new JD stamps!! I LOVE the circle/dots background stamp! So cute and fun! :)

I coloured the sweet giraffe with Graph'it markers (3110, 3140, 1150, 1250, 9500, 9504).

What do you think?! :) Have a great day! xo
