Prima Fairytale chest box "Love in Spring"


Prima was one of my first loves. And who could resist the gorgeous pastel color combo that was the main thread of this month's Prima product picks.

I've made a Fairytale chest box that celebrates love and spring. Prima Meadow Lark collection seemed a perfect choice for the color palette.















































Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by and taking time to leave a comment. Love, Aleksandra

Maja design - Time well spent together is the greatest gift of all


We are allready in the middle of this year's first month and it is time for new challenges and new projects. One of my first ones this year in made with gorgeous Maja Design papers following their inspirational "Mood Board". I've made a tea/hot chocolate bag holding box with an inspiring verse: "The greatest gift you can ever give someone is your time. Because you're giving them something you'll never get back." The box is made out of chipboard that I dressed with Maja Design Vintage Spring papers. I tried to capture the meaning of the verse and the inspiration itself, so I made a box with a clock. There are small mittens on the clock pointers and in the middle of the clock there is a gorgeous Swarovski crystal. Beside the clock I made two cups with a hot chocolate and some marshmalows and of course the chic macarons, that are made from polymer clay.

Krepko smo že zakorakali v prvi mesec letošnjega leta in čas je za nove izzive, nove podvige in nove projekte. Eden izmed prvih je nastal s čudovitimi Maja Design papirji po njihovi čudoviti "Mood Board" inspiraciji. Nastalo je namizno stojalo za vrečke čaja ali vroče čokolade, s čudovitim verzom: "Največje darilo, ki ga lahko kadarkoli komurkoli podariš, je čas. S tem mu namreč daješ nekaj, česar nikoli ne boš dobil nazaj." V stojalu sem skušala upodobiti bistvo inspiracije in bistvo same misli, tako da je stojalo izdelano v obliki ure, ob njej pa sta dve skodelici z vročo čokolado in trendovskimi macaronsi. Vse je izdelano iz papirja, le same macaronse sem izdelala iz polimerne gline. Na sredini ure se bohoti Swarovski kristalček, urini kazalci pa so odeti v zimske rokavičke.

Walking in the Winter Wonderland

A lot of snowy little boxes I made during this Holiday season. This snowy winter scene with a deer family which was another variation of some of my older ones, was a gift for family friends and inside of it there were some sweet bites. They were so very happy to receiving them. And may I take this opportunity to wish all of you, my dear blogofriends, a Happy New Year 2016, may all your wishes come true in this season!

Kar nekaj zasneženih darilnih škatlic je nastalo v letošnjem letu. Zasnežena zimska pokrajina z jelenjo družinico, ki je v eni izmed različic ponovno nastala v zadnjih dneh starega leta, je skrivala sladka darilca za naše prijatelje. Ob tej priložnosti naj tudi vsem vam, ki me spremljate na mojem ustvarjalnem blogu zaželim Srečno in vse dobro v letu 2016, ki je pred nami. Naj bo to vaše leto in naj se vam uresničijo vse skrite in manj skrite želje.

Magical holiday evening


The highlight of the festive season is fast approaching and I am in the middle of my last orders for this years holiday season. It will soon come the anxiously awaited time spent with my family and the dear ones. But I have one more project to share with you. It is a holiday gift box with a miniature Holiday living room on top of it. There is a magical holiday tree with sparkling decorations I made from little styrofoam balls that I covered witl glitter. And the centerpiece is a warm fireplace which has a little electronical tea light inside of it for little extra holiday magic. On the rocking chair by the fire place a mother is reading a story about a Santa to her child. Under the christmas tree the holiday presents are waiting for little arms to unwrap them and be merry. A perfect holiday I wish all the children of this world could rejoice. I used gorgeous Graphic 45 papers that are perfect for that kind of projects.

Vrhunec praznične sezone se hitro približuje in jaz sem sredi zadnjih prazničnih naročil letošnjega leta. Kmalu se bom veselila prazničnega časa, preživetega z mojo družinico in mojimi najdražjimi, ki ga že težko pričakujem. Še pred tem pa z vami delim nov projekt. Praznično darilni škatlico z miniaturno praznično okrašeno dnevno sobo na vrhu. Osrednji del predstavlja topel kamin, v katerem gori električna čajna lučka. Na desni strani kamina pa se bohoti praznično drevesce z bleščečimi okraski. Pred kaminom v gugalniku sedi mati z otročkom v naročju, ki željno posluša pravljico o Božičku. Pod smrekico se skrivajo čudovita darilca, ki čakajo na male ročice, da z njih strgajo papir in se veselijo. Popoln praznični čas, ki si ga želim za vse otroke tega sveta...

Snowy window - Zasneženo okno


After a long time I managed to find some moments to slightly renew my blog's appearance and along with it goes also the decision to be more active on it. I made that promise a few times now, but sadly never managed to keep it. I hope this time I will be more successful. And I will start with a project that I made with Maja Design papers. I love them and they are my most popular choice for the last few months along with some other brands. This is their newest collection "Home for the Holidays". Since the winter time is approaching I made this snowy window, which hides a box for some candies. The project is made with chipboard which I handcut and then covered with patterned papers. Then I decorated all together to get the snowy scenery. It is a perfect gift for upcoming holidays don't you think?

Po daljšem času sem si uspela ujeti nekaj trenutkov, da sem malce prenovila podobo mojega bloga in spodobi se, da ob tej priložnosti sprejmem odločitev, da bom tudi tu malce bolj aktivna. Kar nekajkrat mi je v zadnjem času ta obljuba že spolzela med prsti in resnično si iz srca želim in upam, da bom tokrat bolj uspešna. Ob tej priložnosti bi rada z vami delila 3d projekt - darilno škatlico z motivom zasneženega okna, v katero lahko skrijete slastne grižljaje. Za izdelavo sem uporabila čudovite papirje Maja Design, ki so v zadnjem času ena izmed mojih najpogostejših izbir. Tukaj sem uporabila njihovo najnovejšo kolekcijo "Home for the Holidays". Škatlica je izdelana iz lepenke, ki sem jo izrezala na roke in zlepila skupaj, nato pa jo okrasila z dekorativnimi papirji in ji vdihnila zimski pridih. Kakšna se vam zdi? Popolno darilo za prihajajoče praznike, kajne? ;)













Škatlico prijavljam na naslednje izzive:
1.) The Shabby Tea Room - "O' Christmas Tree"

Happines often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open


Hello my dear friends in blogoland :) I realy realy struggle with a lack of time so my posts on the blog are not so frequent. But every once in a while I get to share my favourite projects with you. Today I want to share with you a shadow box book card that I made with another of my favourites, Maja design papers. They are gorgeous! I love the thick structure and I am absolutely in love with their shabby chic patterns. The sentiment is from "Flourishes" stamp set, part of which I was as a design team member. This card was custom made for a customer for the celebration of 50th birthday. There was a lot of fussy cutting, but I think it was worth of it. What do you think?

I will participate in the latest "The shabby tea room challenge" which is about Rainbow of colors.

Have a great week ahead! :)


En lep pozdravček vsem, ki me spremljate na mojem blogu. Resnično se borim s hudim primankljajem časa, zato moje objave na blogu niso tako redne kot bi si želela. A na vsake toliko si le uspem utrgati nekaj minutk, da z vami delim moje najljubše projekte. Tokrat bi z vami rada delila moj zadnji projekt, sahow box voščilnico knjigo, ki sem jo izdelala z še enimi od mojih priljubljenih, Maja design papirji. Čudoviti so! Obožujem njihovo kompaktno strukturo in čudovite shabby chic vzorčke. Čudoviti verz je odtis proizvajalca Flourishes, katerega del sem bila tudi sama kot članica design teama. Tale izdelek je bil izdelan po naročilu za praznovanje 50-letnice. Veliko je bilo natančnega rezanja, ki je vzelo ogromno časa, a se mi zdi, da je bilo vsekakor vredno. Kakšna se pa vam zdi? :)

Z izdelkom bom seodelovala v zadnjem izzivu na blogu "The shabby tea room challenge", katerega rdeča nit so tokrat mavrične barve.

Uživajte v tednu, ki je pred vami in naj bo uspešen! :)

Prima January Color Challenge and some of the greatest Prima projects of previous year


I fell in love with Prima products, when Rayher Slovenia asked me few months ago to prepare some special projects with Prima for them. This were my most challenging projects that I haven't had the opportunity to share on the blog yet, since my year was pretty bussy with orders. I would be honoured to share some of them with you today. I also have a special treat for you... another one of my latest Prima projects - Book shadow box card, that was designed with new January color challenge on Prima blog in mind. It will be a present for a little boy named Patrik who will be having his Baptism next week. Hope you'll enjoy scrolling through pictures as much as I loved doing al of these projects.

V Prima marketing materiale sem se dokončno zaljubila, ko me je Rayher Slovenija poprosil, da zanje pripravim nekaj izdelkov s Prima materiali. Nastali so najzahtevnejši projekti doslej in vseh vam na mojem blogu še nisem uspela predstaviti, saj so bili dnevi lanskega leta resnično do zadnjega zapolnjeni z naročili. Z veseljem nekatere izmed njih delim z vami danes. Za vas pa imam pripravljeno še posebno presenečenje - novo knjigico Shadow box, ki je nastala z najnovejšim Januarskim barvnim Prima izzivom v mislih. V dar jo bo prejel mali Patrik, ki bo v naslednjem tednu prejel svoj Sveti krst. Upam, da vam bo všeč in da boste pri pregledovanju slikic uživali tako zelo, kot sem uživala jaz med delom.






























And here are some of my previous year Prima special projects.

In tukaj je nekaj mojih lanskoletnih posebnih Prima projektov.







































Hope you like it and I left you at least a little bit inspired for today. I will be very happy of your comments. Have a great day!

Upam, da so vam izdelki všeč in da so v vas pustili vsaj nekaj svežega navdiha. Vesela in počaščena bom nad vašim obiskom in komentarji. Uživajte v preostanku dneva!
