I've been tagged!

I don't know if you know this thing or not but I'll tell you a bit about it.
This tag has been going around blogs for a while and I decided to join.
It has 6 questions that you're supposed to answer so that people will get to know you a bit better. After you answer all the questions you need to "tag" others and then they are the ones that need to answer the same questions.
Anyway, since I want to know as many people as possible I'm tagging all of my readers..
After reading my answers, feel free to post a tag post on your blog and add it in the comments here so everyone will be able to go into your blog and get to know you better.

Well, Here it goes:

TEN Years Ago
Wow.. Ten years ago I was 15 years old which means I was in the 9th grade... wow. I wasn't a very popular person because of some health issues that I had. But I didn't let it bother me much. It was around this age that I found out that the people that truely love you will stick by you no metter what.

FIVE Things on My To Do List
1. Do some grocery's shopping...
2. Clean the appartment... again...
3. Buy storage space for my scrapping supplies.
4. Buy an appartment... My husband & I want to buy our own home. At last!
5. Sit down and scrap!!! I have a ton of things to scrap that I don't have enough time to do.

Well, my favorite "snack" is my mother's cooking.. I know, I know, It's not a snack. I just don't have a particular snack that I crave...

THINGS I would do if I were a Millionaire
Wow, I would buy a house. Quit my job. Go on a long trip around the world. Oh, yeah, and buy me lots & lots of scrapping supplies... lol...

PLACES I have Lived
I've always lived in Israel so for those of you that doesn't know Israel it won't mean much but:
I was born in Bat-Yam. Then my family moved to Holon. I lived there till I moved in with my boyfriend (and now - my husband) in Petach Tikva. Now we live in Rosh Ha-Ayin and we intend to buy our home here...

TAG 5 others
As I said, I'm not going to tag just 5 other people. I'm going to tag you ALL.
Write your answers on your blog and post a comment here with your blog's url.
I'd love to read all your answers.

So that's it for now. See ya later.

Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers-19

I got in to a new blog I found in Diana's blog (in Hebrew).
It's called "Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers".
They organize groups of 20 scrappers at a time that support one another with ideas and feedback on each other's creations. Well, I think that's a great idea so I joined and I belong to group 19.

So, For SBS group 19, here's me in a nut shell:
I'm Ifat from Israel. I'm 25 years old (next week.. yay!) and I'm married (for about a year & a half) to Yinon, my "the one" LOL...
When I got married I decided to create a scrapbook album of my wedding (which, as you can see in the sidebar, I'm still working on. shame on me...).
Well, from the day I started scrapbooking I fell in love with it immediately and now - I'm a scrapoholic!!!
I do hand-made & digital scrapbooking albums but now I'm in a greeting-card-making mode...
You can checkout my creations on this blog all the time.

Welcome everyone! Nice to meet you all!

Weekend's Creations & Updates

First of all, About the contest (or the draw, whatever you want to call it). Be sure to activate your subscription via the mail sent to your inbox. That way I could see your email and include you in the draw.

So that's that.

Now, to my weekend's creations:
As you can see on my "To Scrap" list on the right, I didn't manage to make a greeting card for Ron & Lilach's wedding...
But I still created a greeting with a wedding theme.

And no, it's not the card for Ron & Ronit's wedding... Just in case you were wondering.
Anyway, I don't know if you've noticed but I tried to create with the circles something that would look like a wedding cake. That's why I added those cream-like dots.
I know, I know, this doesn't look quite like a cake. Well, I tried.

The other card I created was a "Thank You" greeting card:

As you can see, I'm very in to raised items on cards at the moment. I use foam adhesive tape a lot!
For the "Thank You!" I used a glitter gel pen after printing the phrase on to the deep purple cardstock.
That's all for this weekend. Have a lovely week everyone!

Guess what? Here comes another post...

I showed you the greeting card for my sister-in-law. That was the first item off my "To Scrap" list.
The second item I got off my list in the shopping list hanger I've been wanting to scrap for about a couple of monthes...
Every time my husband & I want to make a list of the shopping items we need, we use some scraps of paper that we find around the house and use an ugly commercial magnet to stick it on the fridge.
"NO MORE", I said. "I'm going to make a shopping list hanger".
So I did.

To make this hanger I used a piece of cardboard that I cut in the shape I wanted (exactly like the cardboard letters I made a few weeks ago).
After that, I glued a blue cardstock paper on to the cardboard and embellished it.
For the embllishments I used the doodlebug "hopscotch" limeade cardstock stickers (These are the letters) which I've dotted around with a green "Sharpie" pen. In addition, I used a few green gems and a foam butterfly.

I was amazed at how fast I did it! I can't belive I've put it off for so long. All I needed is about an hour (maybe less). My conclusion - Don't put things off :)


I don't know if you've noticed but I have a new "box" an my sidebar, called: My "To Scrap" List.
Well, this weekend I got to check 2 items off that list.
I made a greeting card for my sister-in-law (Happy Birthday Orit!!!).
Now let me tell you a bit about it.
A few weeks ago I saw a punching tool that makes round shapes with "waved" edges.
I wanted to buy it sooo much. Here comes the twist of the story. I realized I can't afford to buy that punching tool so I bought some "wavey" scissors and started cutting circles.
I think you will agree that the circle looks just fine even if it was made by hand and not with that expensive punching tool.
Anyway, so I made the "wavey" circle, printed a cute picture on it and I used double sided foam tape so that the circle would stick out.
I took a couple of ribbons (in one of my favorite combinations - lime green and pink) and tied it at about the middle of the card.
For the finishing touch I used my Hebrew alpabetic stickers to spell "Mazal Tov" which is "Congratulations" in Hebrew.
Now all I need to do is to write the actual greeting...

Look out... Multi-Posts Day is HERE!

Wow. Since I haven't been writing for so long I've pilled up some creations.
First, you saw the "Thanks" greeting card from the last post.
Now, last week I was in a small creative meeting. I met with another 3 girls from the Israeli Arts Forum (you can use the link if you can read Hebrew).
Anyway, we got together to learn how to make a beautiful box from an instant coffee box.
We used pattern paper, ribbons and any other embellishments we could think about.
Here's the result of my renovated box:

And if I'm already writing about it, I might as well take the chance to thank Ronit, Maya and Diana for a lovely time - I had a great time... Even if I ate a huge piece of Ronit's choclate cake - LOL!!!

At Last...

Hi Everyone!!!
After not writing for such a long time (I think it's about 2 weeks now), I finally got the cahnce to take some pictures and to write a bit...

So, a quick update:
I've been creating a "Thanks" greeting card during the last week.
It's for a good friend of mine who helped me during the last year.
This greeting card a booklet of some sort. I'll explain...
As you can see, the greetin card "spells" the word "Thanks".
I've created from patterned cardstock the letters. Every letter is made of a longer piece of cardstock which creates an effect of a letter "lying" on top of the following letter.
Every letter was embellished whit fabric flowers, gems and glitter stickers. In addition, Every letter contains "words of thanks" like: (Thanks...) "For Listening", "For the friendship", "For the smiles" etc.

You can see the rest of the pictures of all the parts of the greeting card in the web album I uploaded, once again, at "Picasa".
