For „Step outside your box“ I altered some screw caps from jam jars …

so, here’s my new belt:

And yes, I’ll wear this belt … I already did.


Step outside your box – No Adhesive Allowed

12 02 2008

The new theme on Step outside your box was really tricky … no adhesive allowed …

Here are my ATCs for a Swap …


The backround is fixed with the sewing machine and the stamped picture is fixed with the stapler and some brads.

Step outside your box – Texture

3 02 2008

Another theme from „Step outside your box“. The whole saturday I was completely mystified what to do.

This morning I formed some Inchies for a Swap with some jewelery clay and put a script stamp on it before backing. As you can see there’s very much texture – including my fingerprints at some places ;-). After baking I used some metallic rub-ons and added the small stamped pictures.


Step outside your box – Rusty Things

20 01 2008

This week the challenge on Step outside your box is to use „Rusty Things“ … that was not easy!

But I found some rusty hearts in the backmost corner of my crafting room …. I remember that I HAD to buy them a year ago and never used them…. so thank you very much for this challenge!

The background of the card I made with the glue technic and stamped with staz on the swirls on it.

The stamp shows my three children 🙂 … the card will be for my husband for Valentine!


Step outside your box – magazine art

13 01 2008

The new theme on „Step outside your box“ is „magazine art“.

Here’s my entry:


The background, the compass and the treasure chest are from a TV- magazine.

I already „lost“ the card to my youngest son … he’s 5 years and pirates are the best of all at the moment ;-)))))

Grandma’s birthday….

… would have been her 95th – she’s the little girl you can see on the

stamp. You can also see her on my blog-banner … the mother on the left


This 20cm x 20cm CANVAS will be a present for my mother. I used three colours of acryl paint which suits to the new challenge blog „Step outside your box„. It also suits to the theme „time“ from „MMM“ and fits to the theme „frame“ from „Created Byhands„.
