Hey everybody, I'm back...
today I’d like to introduce you to the last of our 3 Birthday Competition winners who each won a guest DT spot with us…
This is Monika, she is better known in the blogging world as Mapowska and you may have seen her work already
Hello to all LOTV fans!
My name is Monika, in the network known as Mapowska
I am from Warsaw but with my husband and two small daughters I've been living in Brussels for 7 years now
My interest for paper started 7 years ago when I was preparing for my wedding. At that time I prepared the invitations, guestbook and albums for our parents. Then I switched to cross-stitch, but some two years ago the paper mania seized me for good ;-). It was and still is a break from office work ;-)
I create mainly greeting cards and exploding boxes, but recently I bought a binding machine so the first notebooks and albums are being prepared.
I am trying different styles and techniques, but most of the time I remain in a colourful and optimistic atmosphere ;-) I like working with 3D motifs, I made some mathematical embroidery, and more recently I love using die-cuts, stamps, stamps and stamps... I learn how to colour them and I increase my arsenal of colour markers ;-)
Since October 2012 I belong to the Scrapgang Design Team. We organize challenges each two weeks and, additionally, there is one challenge once a month.
Here’s Monika’s first piece of work and she’s made this darling little exploding box
We have a couple of these in the showroom and they always lots of comments, we have a tutorial on the website if you would like to have a go at making one yourselves
Monika used a greeting from Set 8 and also our ever popular Posy Trio stamps which are the perfect size for this little project
The cake in the middle is very clever!
She’s coloured it with Promarkers and the papers are “White Rose" from Galeria Papieru
This card from Monika is using again one of our most popular stamps…
This stamp is All Our Dreams and we’ve seen so many beautiful baby cards made with it, it’s certainly been a favourite with you all
Papers: "Malutkie Szczęścia" from Magiczna Kartka and the sentiment is from Lemonade
Finally I have this beautiful recipe book to share with you…
Monika use our Strawberries image on this lovely project and coloured it with Promarkers
Those lovely papers are"Tea for two" again from Galeria Papieru
Die-cut lettering: "Delicious!" from Wycinanka
I hope you like them, please take a minute to visit Monika’s own blog here to see more of her lovely work and also do remember to leave us a comment if you like what she’s made for us
Our Guest DT’s are always thrilled by the lovely feedback they get from our visitors and it’s much appreciated
There will be 2 more cards from Monika later over on our Facebook page ...
See you tomorrow for another Theme Thursday!
