USE YOUR SCRAPS. Here is what you can do with a bunch of leftover strips… ✂️

Happy Wednesday my friends,

I recently finished a dozen cards order and as a result, I ended up with a bunch of strips. I knew it well, that if they will go to my ridiculously overgrown pile of scraps I will probably not reach for them again or at least anytime soon… So here is what I did instead

I had so much fun while making it and most importantly rather then putting away all these strips I’ve made 3 additional cards. I’m super happy and proud of how they turned in:

This lovely embossing folder comes from

Creative Stamping Magazine 107: UK / US

And here is the very last card I’ve made with the remaining two strips and gorgeous sentiment from Card Making Magic:

How to make a wedding pop up box with floating elements

Today is just a quick post as I wanted to share with you the wedding pop-up box I’ve made some time ago during one of my Facebook live classes

LINK TO THE VIDEO:

https://youtu.be/DRjPl_FSYS0

You will need two pieces of A5 size card, score it both at 4 and 8 inches (10 and 20 cm) on the longer side and 3 and a half-inch (9cm) on the shorter (on the second piece make the scoring line only on half of it leaving one side unscored). Trim a piece of the flap and make a cut from the top just until the scoring line as shown in the video. Glue both pieces by adding adhesive to the flaps and your pop-up base is ready.
This was made from some of my digital papers, which are available here on my Buy me a coffee page:

I’m also having some of my digital designs available at Craft Stash now, and I would love it, if you could take a minute to have a quick look at these (each paper pack contains 24 printable papers in 12 designs for £3.99!)

MY FIRST DIGITAL COLLECTION

Hello my friends,

There will be lots of changes coming to my page but for now, I wanted to share with you my first digital collection, which I’ve designed thinking of Valentines, but also all weddings, anniversaries, welcome baby and many more occasions.

The collection contains 14 papers: 7 designs and 7 matching inserts.

The entire collection is available in one set for a very affordable price of £6 – less than 50p per design (considering that you can print it in as many copies as you like), but I’m also giving you the option to buy papers individually and pay only for the designs you like the most.

I’m also having a matching set of labels, which contains 80 digital elements.

The entire collection is available on my new page, which I’m just starting to build up and I wish to warmly invite you there

Or you can see all the papers on my Extras section of my Buy Me a Coffee page:

https://www.buymeacoffee.com/dropofsunshine/extras

The money raised from selling this collection and all others which will be coming shortly will help me to keep continuing to design and share more printable papers with you (including free ones too!)

And for that, I’m so grateful for all your support for my family and my creations.

If you will be looking forward to seeing some inspirations made from these papers, check my free Facebook live classes:

And here you can see a couple of my projects made from these papers:

one year anniversary of my design papers

Hello my friends,

I hope everyone are well. I’ve not had a chance to post anything on my blog for ages but I’ve been super busy and a lot of things has been going on in my crafty live.

Here is a quick video which is an introduction to what I have planned for tomorrow:

That was my very first ever paper collection I ever shared:


all these designs are now available at:

Buy me a coffee

(I switched to BMC to help out my budget as I’m spending long hours designing these free papers plus additionally the platform provides me with statistics so I know how many friends are downloading my papers, which will be handy to estimate how much interest is in my designs if I would ever decide to produce a hard copy. There are no obligations to pay for my free papers or to use options to buy a coffee, this is simply a gesture of support to a creator)

And here is my card made out of these Autumn collection papers

Thank you so much my friends for all, watching my videos and sharing them.

You can also support my creations by using one of my affiliate links. By using one of those links or any other one I’m giving you here or underneath my YouTube videos and the rest of my social media, you are supporting me and my family as Craft Stash is paying me a little % for every time you are buying anything from the store by visiting it via one of my links, for which I’m very grateful as this helps me to add to my family budget.

Life and craft update, gesso accident and the most epic happy mail… :)

Hi friends,

I’m hoping you are all well. I know that lately, I’ve not been much active, but we had a bit of struggles with my son’s allergies and eczema. We have scheduled a visit to the regional hospital in Inverness, which is a 100 miles drive from our town, and then hopefully he will have his new meds sorted out and his condition will improve.

I wasn’t planning to make any videos, maybe just share a photo or two of the cards I’ve made. I’ve been working on some new inspirations of collections, which will be coming to the Craft Stash store shortly as well as unfortunately, I had to make not one but two sympathy cards.

I must tell you, my friends, that sympathy cards are the type I favour the less, always make them with a heavy heart but these are the cards I never say no to making as is someone is dealing with a loss the last thing I want them is to worry about the card. So here are two cards I’ve made:

And now something more cheerful!!!

I received the biggest, the best happy mail ever!! This unbelievably huge parcel come to me all way down from the US. This gift came from my dear friend Cindy, which I’ve met last year on the Craft World and we’ve been good friends since. Cindy is one of the most generous and kind people I know and I’m so happy that God has given me such an incredible and supportive friend like her.

Before showing you what’s in the parcel I must tell you, my friends, that I received it right before my shift at work. I know I wanted to open it so badly. so I quickly jumped into my studio and tried to clean up my desk so I could record it for my YT channel… And then it happened!! I accidentally kick the tub of gesso, and once it hit the floor all contend had splashed all over including my carpet, my desk, even my hair, lol

And by the time I finish to clean it all up I had to go to work. This was the longest shift ever, as I just couldn’t wait to go home and open my mail. So without any further ado, here is my video from opening that parcel:

this pack is absolutely humongous!!! and I love every single bit of it. not only me, but my son also loved his gift 🥰

One last thing my friends I wish to invite you all to my live I will have on Facebook this coming Thursday, where I will show you how to create some lovely papercraft gifts, which will be lovely creations not only as birthday gifts but also something you can use for this Mother’s Day coming and all your round!

And just to let you know, Craft Stash is having tons off offers and deals, which will be coming for entire week celebration.

Shop UK / Shop US

And here is a best highlight from today:

And there is more…

So please don’t forget to click on the link below and check the latest offers, as there is a birthday week celebration and Craft Stash is having tons of offers and deals for you, and if you decide to buy something and you enter the store via my link, you are supporting me and my family, as I’m receiving a small commission from the sale, which is not affecting your total price as you still pay the same.

Busy, busy, big boy birthday and… freebie!

Hey friends,

It’s been few days since my last post, but It’s been crazy time. I got a few commissioned work for magazines and few orders. Plus my son has just turned 3 last Friday!!! I cannot even tell you my friends how happy I’m with all the blessings happening to me right now.

Last few days I’ve been working on some projects I cannot share with you, but today afternoon I’ve decided to take a wee break and to do something for myself. Earlier on I was sneak peaking on What’s hot on the Craft Stash and noticed this awesome Flash Sale!!

Shop UK / Shop US

I realised that this offer includes one of the dies I really really love, so I’ve decided to play with it, and here is my step by step card:

Score A4 card in half
cut a slightly smaller layer
add texture with embossing folder
cut frames
3 from gold card and two from white
trace oval die on design paper
attach design oval to white one and add frame on top using layer of foam tape
add two gold ovals to the sides and main panel on the centre
stamp sentiment
use banner die to cut it out
tie a bow
attach your banner and bow with hot glue
as finish touch add a pearl button

I hope you will like this photo tutorial as this is quite new form for me and I’m still learning.

As a bonus my friends I have a little gift for you:

And to wrap up this post and send you a Drop of Sunshine I’m sending you a lovely photo I’ve made once we were having a fun day at the beach near by on the weekend.

And as always I’m sending you lots of love and positive energy. Stay safe and blessed. Hugs. Marta

Love yourself and be kind to yourself ❤️❤️❤️

My friends,

I’m hoping you are great and that you had a wonderful day. I was actually planning to post this early morning… but as they say better later than never.

I’ve made a quick video from all clips and photos I’ve recorded from one of our trips we had some time in February. I wanted to post it today as it is a very special day. Today is the last day of Easter Octave called Divine Mercy Sunday.

This is a time of forgiveness and receiving grace. And this is a perfect way of clearing your heart and forgive to yourself in order to love yourself.

I hope you will enjoy my quick video as well as a little bonus of printable quotes I’ve created for you my friends so you could create a lovely card or project.

It was a really beautiful day and we all enjoyed it so very much. I hope you like my today post and I’m wishing you all a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Hugs. Marta ❤️

The power is inside you…

Hey friends,

I’m hoping you are great. Today I wanted to share with you a super fun card idea that is very easy to recreate as long as you have some nesting dies and some colouring mediums. I’m using Distress Oxides as they are blending fabulously.

The focal point of my card is this lovely chipboard quote from Craft O’Clock, which says “The power is inside you” and this is the message I want to sent today to you my friend. You are absolutely amazing and you have this power inside you to follow your dreams, to make a change in your own surrounding and do whatever sparks your heart. With this message, I wish to cheerlead you to not give up and stay focus on the things which brings you joy. I’m praying for all of you my friends to have this amazing life filled with love and passion.

I also hope my today’s video will spark some creativity in you and will encourage you to create some cards using this lovely idea.

For my todays card I’ve used up few of the Distress Oxide inks, which as I’ve mentioned in the video are currently on the sale. There is a multibuy offer which allows you to get 15% OFF, whenever you buy a minimum 3 products from the entire Distress range.
