Making my Yoda I found another cute project in the book Virka amigurumi by Mia Bengtsson, a turtle. This is an awesome and little project that only takes an evening or two to make. It's stitched in acrylic yarn.

So the last Yoda I made I gave away to a friend of mine, was supposed to make one just for him, but at that time my crochet bug had gone. So I needed another one, this time I based it on the Munk pattern from a swedish amigurumi book: Virka amigurumi by Mia Bengtsson, I just added the ears. It's crocheted in both wool and acrylic.

So my stitching bug flew out the window, I know I will get it back later, and my crochet bug flew in. So this little dude or dudette has been lying in my crochet bag since last Christmas only missing one of her/his legs and both of her/his arms. My crochet bug had left in the middle of it, but with my bug back she/he was finished in no time. He/she is based on the Harajukuflicka pattern from the swedish amigurumi book Virka roliga amigurumis by Mia Bengtsson. He/she is crocheted in wool yarn.

A friend om mine had her birthday, no need to talk about age her. This girl is an awesome person, I just love how she dresses. So her clothing and hair got me inspired to make this card. Its quite a simple one, but I'm really likening it. The card base is from Centura Pearl Card, the patterned paper is from a paper stack from DCWV called the Street Lace that I have had in my collection forever. The stamp is an digi-stamp from Kenny K and its painted with my Spectrum Noirs.

A friend of mine had his 21st birthday for the 10th time, and as he persist to say its his 21st birthday I thought the sentiment Forever 21 fitted him perfect. I have put the sentiment together on the software to my eCraft and then cut it out on core'dinations card. The flower is also cut out on my eCraft and you can find it on the fundamentals 1 SD-card that comes with the mashine. The 3D-decoupage picture and the background-paper comes from Crafter Companions Popcorn the Bear Papercraft Triple CD-ROM Collection, the Birthday one. The cardbase is made from Centura Pearl Card. The pearls is self-adhesive that I bought in my local craft store.

Its my uncles birthday soon, so I made him a card. At the same time I wanted to play with my new flower fairies CD that I got in the mail this week (if you want to see what more I got you can find my haul video here). So this is the Marigold fairy, the matching papers comes from the same CD. I'm sorry for the picture quality, I should stop photographing at night or get better lighting. And I should learn how to use my fathers camera, right now its more point and click when the camera has so much capacity that I'm not using.
3D-Decoupage and Pattern Papers: Crafter's Companions Flower Fairies Friends, Fairies of the Garden CD

Been learning my eCraft machine and the software that comes with, and thought I would share my project that I created with it. I want to enter a couple of challenges with it. Dilly Beans Designers & Friday Challenges, this week they have a pastel palette challange. Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge, this month challenge is Here Comes Summer. Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge, this weeks challenge is Anything Goes. And finally Bearly-Mine Challenges, this week the challenge is Friendship. The pattern paper I'm using is a freebie from Bearly-Mine Designs, but as soon I finished the 100 project challenge I will buy some of the beautiful designs they have.

Patterned paper: Bearly-Mine Designs
Flower etc.: Cut with eCraft from Fundamentals 1 SD-card
As I told you in my last post I'm trying the 100 projects before shopping challenge again. This time I'm going to finish it. I actually started it one and a half month ago, so I have a few projects to show you already. Just before starting it I laid down an order from Crafter's Companion. And half of it has finally arrived, my eCraft, so now I have an electrical cutting machine to play with. Last year I bought this 3D-decopauge kit with Flower Fairies from Crafter's Companion (yeah I love their products), but I never came around to use it. So over easter this was what I took with me to my parents, together with the essentials (knife, glue, snail-tape). And did I produce some cards, I have used up all 12 6x6 card bases together with the 12 3D-decopauge fairies and some of the rub-on sentiments. I also made one with the rub-on fairies on to one of the A6 cards. I still have 10 of the A6 cards to play with(A friend of mine played to, she used another of the A6 cards). These kits have alot of nice things to play with, down below are the cards I made.
