One DIY project

Hello/Buna,

I am behind again with the posting, I know, but in my defense, I was pretty busy.                             Sunt in urma cu postarile, stiu, insa in apararea mea, am fost foarte ocupata.

I have in mind some DIY (Do It Yourself) projects that I don’t have time to write or make pictures for and we have to be patient. It would be nice if you can tell me what do you wont to do by yourself: projects for daily life or for special events.                                                                                             Am in minte cateva proiecte DIY (descurcate singur) pentru care nu am timp nici sa scriu nici sa fac pozele necesare asa ca trebuie sa avem rabdare. Mi-ar place sa stiu si ce anume v-ar interesa sa faceti singuri: proiecte de zi cu zi sau unele pentru vre-un eveniment special.

Till then, here’s something simple I made for a christening a while back. To make something like this you need to follow 4 simple steps: PRINT, CUT, SCORE, GLUE and that’s it :).                                   Pana atunci uite ceva simplu facut pentru un botez cu ceva timp in urma. Sa faci ceva asemanator enu trebuie decat sa urmezi 4 pasi simpli: PRINTEAZA, TAIE, INDOAIE, LIPESTE si gata :).

1.PRINT the design you like on a sheet of paper – use A4 card-stock, light colored, min160g max 200g  2.CUT the excess paper to 18x25cm – you can skip this step if you don’t mind your finished place card to be bigger.                                                                                                                                     3.SCORE the lines in order to bend the paper – if you don’t own a scoreboard use a pattern (9x18cm or 10.5x21cm) cut from a thick cardboard to help you fold the paper.  Start from one end and aligne the pattern with your sheet and fold, aligne the pattern from the first fold and bend again.                 4.GLUE or TAPE the other end to form a pocket and you’re done.

1.PRINTEAZA modelul dorit pe o foaie de hartie – foloseste o bucata de carton A4, culoare deschisa, cu grosimea intre 160 si 200g                                                                                                                   2.TAIE bucatile de care nu ai nevoie astfel incat sa ramai cu o bucata de 18x25cmdaca nu te deranjeaza sa fie mai mare plicul de bani poti sa sari peste aceasta etapa.                                                                           3.INDOAIE la dimensiunea dorita – daca nu ai o placa de biguit poti folosi un sablon (o bucata de carton mai gros pretaiat la una din dimensiunile 9x18cm or 10.5x21cm pentru a te ajuta sa indoi. porneste de la un capat, aliniaza sablonul cu foaia ta si indoaie, repozitioneaza apoi sablonul de la aceasta indoitura si indoaie din nou. 4.LIPESTE – foloseste lipici sau banda dublu adeziva pentru a foma un buzunar la capaul celalalt si ai incheiat.

Best of look with this project. Be free to address me any questions regarding my work – I will try to answer them in the shortest time possible.                                                                                              Mult succes cu acest proiect. Nu va sfiiti sa-mi puneti intrebari legate de munca mea – voi incerca sa va raspund in cel mai scurt timp cu putinta.

Hugs and kisses/Pupici

With SPRING in my soul

Cu primavara in suflet

Ana’s christening has past and I think it’s time to share some photos of the stationery made especially for her reception.

Botezul Anei a trecut si cred ca este timpul sa impartasesc cu voi cateva poze cu papetaria facuta pentru acest eveniment.

Many children attended Ana’s First Party so her mum ordered special card places for each of them. „Make them cheerful and full of color” she said and I complied :).

Mai multi copii au participat la Prima Petrecere a Anei asa ca mama ei a comandat cate un Place card pentru fiecare dintre ei.” Fa-le vesele si pline de culoare” mi-a spus si eu m-am conformat :).

She also ordered a „butterfly invasion” – medium size, hand cut butterflies of different colors – that she placed on glasses as decorations.

A mai comadat si o „invazie de fluturasi” – de dimensiuni medii, decupati manual si in culori diferite – pe care i-a asezat pe pahare ca simple decoratiuni.

Little David had an idea of how the butterflies should be used and I think he was brilliant – look.

Micutul David a avut o idee despre cum ar trebui utilizati fluturasii si cred ca a fost genial – priviti.

Till next time/Pana data viitoare

Hugs and Kises,/Va pup dulce

A touch of Spring

Un strop de Primavara

Don’t you just love the nature in spring? All that green scented whit the smell of fresh flowers, trees in bloom, singing birds and playful butterflies – all that color and brightness – isn’t it just beautiful?

Nu-i asa ca va place natura primavara? Tot acel verde inbibat de mirosul florilor proaspete, pomii in floare, pasari cantatoare si fluturi jucausi – toata acea bogatie de culori si lumina – nu-i asa ca este o frumusete?

Inspired by this beauty, Ana’s christening invitation wears a fragrance of raw grass and cherry blossoms so they seems touched by nature – a touch of spring in a sea full of love that with great emotion Crina and George wears towards their daughter.

Inspirate de toata aceasta frumusete, invitatiile de botez ale Anei poarta un parfum de iarba cruda si flori de cires astfel incat par atinse de natura – un strop de primavara.intr-o mare de iubire ce cu emotie o poarta Crina si George pentru fetita lor.

See you,

Pe curand,

Gabi

Perfect Plum

Violetul perfect

I know I am really behind with the posting, but I have been so busy lately that  I haven’t had the time to write.

Stiu ca sunt tare in urma cu postarile, dar am fost atat de ocupata in ultima vreme ca nu am avut timp pentru a scrie

Back to Julia’s invitations now. Her quest for the perfect invitation ended a few weeks ago. Perfect plum is the result of great team work and collaboration between handmade designers. A special thanks to Corina who has supplied the embossed borders.

Inapoi la invitatiile Iuliei acum. Cautarile ei pentru invitatia perfecta au luat sfarsit in urma cu cateva saptamani. Perfect plum este rezultatul muncii in echipa si a colaborarii intre design-erii de handmade. Un multumesc din toata inima as vrea sa-l adresez  Corinei care ne-a furnizat benzile embosate.

Till next time,

Pana data viitoare,

Hugs and kisses.

Pupici.

Cristina’s gatefolds

Invitatiile Cristinei (inchidere stil poarta)

I sure like a determined woman. Cristina knew what she wanted from the start. She wanted something simple with a ribbon and a bow – two color invite (ivory and garnet).  Here’s what I made for her:

Trebuie sa recunosc ca imi place o femeie hotarata. Cristina a stiut ce isi dorea inca de la inceput. Vroia ceva simplu stans cu o funda – o invitatie in doua culori (fildes si grena). Iata ce am facut pentru ea:


Hugs and kisses,

Pupici,
