Leo's mini diary book

Hello ...

It's me again and I have a little something to share for you :)
I just love one image from the latest Zodiac collection - Leo !!
How cute she is with the cutest tail and her hair .. just gorgeous wild! I Loveee her!

and today I made a little diary book for Leo ;)

not too thick book but it was so cute to write some words from the sweet Leo journey ;)

here is the front look .. simple design with only card stock no design paper this time, just masking some washed color with chalk and distress ink.

white papers inside to write the notes, binding all together and tied with organza on a cinnamon stick.

Here is my cute Leo Tilda :)
I do not put lots of embellishment here but I did some fun artsy though ..
I cut some pieces of water color paper with DH - Heart Swirl and then I cut them randomly, glue it on the oval edge, because they come from the same paper so they turn become faux embossed. The edge inked with several color and ending with walnut stain. I use aged taupe from Stampendous to make gorge effect and not forget .. Ancient - African Gold embossing powder from Ranger because I love them more glittering, blink and shine ;)
the only one decoration on the book is a cute mushroom!! the mushroom comes from cork sheet that I cut with DH - Mushroom kit from Lost and Found 2014

whoot .... okay, enough for today!
Thank you for stopping here and will see ya soon!!!!

Big Hugs,

Would love to join at SSS - Glitter it (hope glitter embossing count in ..)

Friends - Gemini Zodiac

Hello my dear fellows ..
Today I would love to share about my fun coloring time few days ago, It was so much exciting when I've got some of Zodiac collection from Magnolia and it likes got some toys yay!! .. he he
Before I'll go with my own Zodiac (Big Thanks to Magnolia, they allowed me to have my sign and also my mother sign too !) I picked the Gemini .. I am happy to say that this image could fit in all occasion not just for birthday event .. they could use for friendship, prompt celebration, tweenies anniversary and so on ..
But no card yet for today .. ho ho don't be disappointed :)
I will show you to create a shabby chic flowers motif on Tilda's dress ..
here it is,

Before I go with the coloring, first I would love to share about the new ink pad that I used. That was a dye ink from Simon Says Stamp and I found it have no smear with my water coloring, I stamped on Bockingford water color paper that has a rough surface and it works good! will think to take a chance with smooth surface later soon.
Okay, for the coloring .. as usual I love to paint with distress ink refill that was also I did for my image, except .. the peachy flower on the dresses and grass flower.
Nothing special on my way when I painted, just on this case I took a bit of color direct from the gelatos and paint on the image, clean my brush and blending it out, just it.

I had so much fun to do this, because whenever I saw Tilda using a dress with plain fabric I really want she use some patterned fabric or may be one day she will using Batik :)
You also can use paper piecing technique but for me .. this way I choose because I am not good with the fussy cutting LoL ..

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”

― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Okay .. That's all for today and I try to come back here soon!
Thanks for visiting me and see ya!!!

Dear teachers ...

It's nice to see you again my lovely readers ..
Today posting is about thankful :)

I got some new stamps from Magnolia and of course their latest release - Zodiac collection is too cute .. I took a Capricorn and coloring him for a few pieces.
Then I thought .. I choose the Capricorn but I don't want to make any birthday theme with them on this March .. :D nah, what should I make then ??
Finally I got a word knocked on my head .. 
so, I made a set little gifts for teacher ..
Here I show you one by one of my set,

First, a little cookies wrap!
it's easy to do, just take a paper with  6" x 8.5" , score at the 4", 8" on the long side and score at 0.5" on the short side, dies a circle on the center of one side and make a pocket. using DooHickey Spring Flower Border cut the edge.
I glued a piece of tracing paper on the circle window.

The second one is a chocolate tiny bag :)
Actually it was super fun to do with my old dies called Top Note die from Stampin'Up! but you can use any brand that have similar shape. After I cut the paper then I fold it like the picture show just it!
Next step only decorate it and make a sling on to have a mini purse model. I put the wrapped chocolate ball and I love to use simple sentiment from my old Stampendous stamp.

and the last is a very simple tag with oval shape ..
Teacher never expect anything in return from their students but a little thing given by their student is the most precious gift they ever had .. are you agree ??
you might have a same feeling with me about a person called teacher .., they are like a guiding star that we had sometimes forget .. but they had made us knowing about many things in this world :)

To all teachers in the world, Thank you SO much!!

Hope you will get some inspiration from my work, as you will see all the 12 Zodiacs release in one time but you don't have to wait until the month of each Zodiac to create something :)

Thank you for stopping by and Have a nice day!
Love, Yulis

I would love to entering this on :

Tilda with Hawaii flower - Butterfly wishes 2011 

Anyone remember this song ???
Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like it's satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing ...
Here is my card, with those butterflies this card contains lot of best wishes ..
I choose the mid tone of sage and gorgeous paper is Prima marketing.

closer look for the bottom details .. 
flowers are from Thailand, Lace bought on a store here and I always love white seam binding.

I used DooHickey dies from Magnolia - Tilda Lace, Leaf border come from Sizzix.

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like it's satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
I feel it when you're with me
It happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle
Your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies ...

I love this song from Dolly Parton and I would love to share with you, HERE you can hear her beautiful song "Love is Like A Butterfly"

Wish you all the lovely days ahead everyone!
Thank you for stopping by :)
