Hi everyone!
How are you all doing? Hope you have a great time wherever you are! I am home and inbetween cooking and cleaning and translating, i also create; otherwise it would all become to boring :P. So here is my contribution to the Magnolia Down Under 77th challenge - A Gift For You. I have not got any Magnolia stamps at all - actually, sorry, i only have one - but here im not using the one i have. The gift i made it's a candy basket for my baby, who has a verrrrrrry sweet tooth ;).

If i don't manage to write on the big day, i wish you all from now
filled with joy, love, hope and whatever you are looking for :)!

Salut, dragii mei! Ce faceti? Sper ca va distrati oriunde ati fi!
Eu, printre curatenie, gatit si traduceri, simt nevoia sa si creez - altfel totul ar deveni cam prea plictisitor, huh ;)? Pentru provocarea actuala de la Magnolia Down Under - un Cadou pentru Tine am creat un cosulet de bomboane pentru sotul meu, care adora dulciurile ;).
Pentru aceia dintre voi care isi doresc un astfel de cosulet, am postat un tutorial pas-cu-pas aici.
Daca nu am timp sa postez in Ziua Cea Mare, va urez tuturor de pe acum
si un An Nou plin de bucurie, iubire, speranta si tot ceea ce va doriti!

Hello everyone!
How are you all? Hope you had a wonderful, warm Christmas vacation surrounded by the ones you love. And also, i hope you found a lot of crafty gifts under the tree ;). Fortunatelly, now is still a family time, so all i wanted to show you is my card for the actual Penny Black at All Sorts challenge - The Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder. Here, except a very generous theme, the main idea was to use a Penny Black product as the central piece of our work. I do not have too many Penny Black stamps - even though i loooooooove them, they really make my heart melt :) - so here is what i did :):

I have used light grey scrapbooking cardstock, patterned paper from Dovecraft, brads "Hint of Pink" and vellum (the one with the baloons) that you will find in any of the kits SPECIAL or OCCASIONS. All these you can find in the shop.
Maybe i have some luck, who knows ;). Until next time, i wish you have a fabulous time!


Salutare, dragii mei! Ce faceti, sper ca ati petrecut frumos alaturi de ai vostri. Si sper ca ati gasit ceea ce sperati sub brad :). Din fericire, aceasta este inca o perioada pe care o petrecem alaturi de familie, asa ca nu va retin mult. Voiam decat sa prezint lucrarea mea pentru provocarea de pe Penny Black at All Sorts - Frumusetea este in ochii privitorului. Ideea de baza a acestei provocari este de a folosi un produs Penny Black ca si piesa centrala a lucrarii noastre. Desi nu am prea multe stampile Penny Black - le adooooor, pur si simplu - iata ce am creat:

Am folosit hartie imprimata din colectia Funky Vintage (Dovecraft), brads "Hint of Pink", foaia de calc cu balonase face parte din seturile SPECIAL si OCCASIONS, si bineinteles carton pentru scrapbooking. Toate acestea se gasesc aici.
Pana data viitoare, va urez toate cele bune!

Merry Christmas everyone :)!
May your house be filled with the joy of the season, love and sparkle!
Hey dear bloggers!
I can't believe it's nearly the end of the year!
Lots To Do Challenge is asking for our favourite card of the year. I've published it before, but this one is the closest to my soul :)!
If I don't manage to post anything anymore for the Big Day, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy prosperous New Year!
Thank you for your friendship and support!
Sal lume!
Blogul Lots-to-do are ca provocare "Felicitarea favorita pe 2010". Am ales acest proiect vintage, il ador, este cel mai apropiat de sufletul meu.
Daca nu reusesc sa revin de Craciun, va urez de pe acum Sarbatori Fericite! Multumesc din suflet pentru prietenie si sustinere :)!

Hi everyone!
As we are getting closer with every minute to this year's holidays and considering that im done with all my Christmas cards for this year, i thought i should make a kind of collage and present them all to you. Hope you will enjoy this!
This is my latest one:

Until next time, i wish you all the best!

Salutare dragilor!
Avand in vedere ca mai este foarte putin pana la Craciun si ca am terminat toate felicitarile de trimis pe anul asta, am zis sa va prezint un fel de colaj al tuturor felicitarilor de Craciun create in 2010. Sper sa va placa.

Pana data viitoare, toate cele bune!
Hi bloggers!
How are you? All good i hope!
I am back on the blog to show you my first mini-album created from scratch. I did not have any chipboard left in the stash, and since i was in the mood to create a  mini-album i said i should use what i have. For this mini-album, some products and techniques were used for the first time: the papers from the Funky Vintage collection (Dovecraft), masks from Tim Holtz with the spraying technique, some cutting dies from the On The Edge collection (Tim Holtz, of course) and some Texture Fades (embossing folders) by Tim Holtz.
This type of album is called "matchbook album" and this specific one is supposed to be pretty masculine, as its for my husband :). It's a perfect gift for a birthday or a special occasion. We have not inserted pictures yet, but that should not be a problem, i guess ;). Hope you like it and until next time i write again, have a fabulous time all of you :)!

Sal lume! Ce faceti, toate bune sper!
Revin aici ca sa va arat primul meu mini-album creat de la zero. Nu mai aveam chipboard in casa si cum eram "disperata" sa creez un mini-album, am folosit ce aveam in casa. La acest album am folosit produse si tehnici in premiera: hartia imprimata din colectia Funky Vintage (Dovecraft), mastile de la Tim Holtz cu tehnica pulverizarii, matrite de decupare din colectia On The Edge (Tim Holtz, normal) si cateva Texture Fades (matrite de embosare) de la Tim Holtz.
Albumul este de tip "matchbook" si este masculin, pentru ca este special pentru sotul meu. Este un cadou perfect pentru o zi de nastere sau orice ocazie speciala din viata voastra sau a celor dragi. Urmeaza sa inseram pozele dar pana atunci va las sa va delectati cu albumul "pur". Sper sa va placa si pana data viitoare va urez numai bine!

Hello you all!
Wonderful day today...snow on the ground and sun in the skies. I love this kind of weather, that's real winter for me. And since im done with my last big translation project for this year, i had time to create also. And what did i make? Here it is, a Christmas tree made of hearts. Hope you like it. It's extremely simple and therefore cheap ;). Enjoy it! And have a great time until we see each other again! I know some of you are cold or a bit sick - so get well soon ;)!
The finished version:
From the backside - i made a support so it can stand like a frame:
Sal lume! Ce faceti? E o vreme superba aici: zapada la sol si soare pe cer, asa arata zilele de iarna pentru mine. Si intrucat am terminat cu ultimul proiect mare de traducere pe anul asta, normal ca am si scrapuit. Mai mult decat de obicei. Iata ce am creat recent: un pom de iarna din inimioare. Sweet, huh ;)? E foaaaaaaaaaarte simplu de facut si implicit ieftin. Mai sus ati vazut rezultatul finit iar in continuare iata de la ce am pornit:
5 inimioare de marimi diferite:
Pomul de iarna asamblat:
Sper ca v-a placut si poate va inspira si pe voi ;)! Spor la toate! Si numai bine pana data viitoare!

Hey everyone!
This is my FIRST time when i take part at the Cuttlebug Spot challenges and im really excited about it. I never did a card so quick. I had another attempt to this challenge but i did not like the first result. And then the inspiration just "hit" me. So the challenge is about our favourite embossing techniques on Christmas cards, and here is mine:

Salve lume!
E prima oara cand particip eu insami la o provocare pe un blog faimos, cum e the Cuttlebug Spot. Ii urmaresc de mult, organizeaza frecvent provocari si am zis ca nu ar fi rau sa incep si eu sa particip.
Provocarea actuala se refera la metoda favorita de embosare la felicitarile de Craciun. Iar aceasta e contributia mea:

Tineti-mi pumnii - se trage la sorti ;). See yaaaa!
Normal ca nu am stat degeaba :P. Stiu, am avut de lucru, insa nu va asteptati sa stau cu nasul in traduceri non-stop. Nu as putea, iar scrapbooking-ul - dupa timpul petrecut cu sotul meu - este "portita" mea spre relaxare. Si intrucat sunt gata de mult cu felicitarile de Craciun, am zis ca pot sa fac si altceva. Dar ce? Am ajuns la concluzia ca nimic altceva decat decoratiuni specifice acestei minunate ocazii ;). "Caciulita lui Mos Craciun" o am, asa ca era randul unui "ciorapel pentru cadouri". L-am facut din carton de la recuperari, hartie cu motive de Craciun (puteti folosi si hartie pentru cadouri ;)) si cateva decoratiuni. Iata ce a iesit:

 Sper sa va placa. Pana data viitoare, numai de bine sa auzim!

Hi bloggers!
I know i was working on my last translation project on this year - i wont take over another one, im really tired - but i could not keep my nose inside those translations only, i would go crazy. My most beloved source of reacreation - beside spending time with my husband - is of course scrapbooking. So, since im done with all the Christmas greeting cards, i said i should do something else, but what? Decorations, i said. The first one i made - the Santa's hat - you saw already. Now i thought its time for a gift stocking. So here are the last pictures:

Hope you liked it. Until next time, i wish you a great time!
