Ina Twigt from Vintage by Ina

My name is Ina Twigt. I am live in Holland.  I started with 3d decoupage.
I also love colouring stamps.  Since a few years I've been making scrapcards.
 


My name is Mags and I live in the UK.  I have a very understanding husband and two grown up daughters.  I have been papercrafting for about six years now but have always been creative.  When I am not working you can normally find me in my crafty room playing with card and paper.  I mainly do cardmaking and love making cards for my family and friends.   I don’t think I have a particular style but I do love playing around with stamps and patterned paper.   Thank you to Crafting by Designs for inviting me to join in with their September challenge.

Things With Wings!

Hi everyone, Doris here
with another new challenge for August.
This week we're looking for
Things with Wings
Thanks to this week's sponsor
Prize: $10 credit to store

Here's a gorgeous project from DT member Carole using Wisteria Fairy from Aurora Wings


This beautiful project comes from
our super talented Guest Designer

Lucyna from u Luli
My name is Lucyna Marynowska, aka Lula from http://ululi.blogspot.com/
I come from the north of Poland. Fifty-six, part time working widow, mum
of two grown up boys and a proud grandma.
I started my crafting journey 3 years ago as a card maker and immediately
became an addicted paper-lover. My latest craze is playing with mixed
medias and altering things.  My beloved husband has passed away recently and I found true solace in crafting.  I love challenges to spark my creativity and I love making crafty friends all over the world. This is my take on the theme: Things with wings.
It is a piece of mail art. I altered a craft envelope inspired by forthcoming fall.
Hope you like it! Crafty hugs, Lula

This challenge is open until September 1.

I've always enjoyed arts and crafts, however, a few years ago I got into paper crafts and cards. I really enjoy creating. I'm a retired music teacher, married, and have 4 children and 5 grandchildren and an English Springer Spaniel.  I also make jewelry items (mostly out of recycled musical things) and have opened an Etsy shop since I retired.  I love my family!   Happy crafting everyone!
