I can’t believe that we are almost halfway through January. But I’m happy how the year started and how much I created during the first weeks of January. Firstly, my new Skillshare class was published on the 6th. It’s about making transparent floral stickers. I really enjoy making transparent stickers. Check out the class here: https://skl.sh/3O50P8s
I’ve also finally archived my 2019 Travel Journal including all the paraphernalia that goes with it! So now I can continue to work on the COVID times Travel Journal and to prepare for the upcoming one.
I also started the year creating an acrylic painting. It was my first time to use a palette knife to paint. I had the wrong mixing palette so it was hard to mix the paints and to take the paint from it. It’s not great but I’m happy to have a try. 🙂
Also, my mini sketchbook project is moving forward and my journals are regularly filled. However, this week will be mostly dedicated to admin work. But that has to be done too. Please have a great week!
Hi there! Christmas is just around the corner. On Saturday, the Christmas season was officially opened in Helsinki. At the same time, we had the first snow that day. So beautiful! Here is a photo from my window.
Today, I decided to allow free download of my December BuJo template. You can download it here. Please feel free to download it for personal use and inspiration.
The year is ending soon and it’s that time of the year to start reflecting back on the year 2022 and to plan for the next year. I’m also in the process of making another sticker class. This time it will be about making transparent floral stickers. I’m so excited. Have a great week!
Hello everyone! I’m happy to announce that I’ve finally published a follow-up class on making stickers on the Cricut Joy. This time it’s about making die-cut stickers. The stickers that we will be designing will be Kawaii snacks. We will design our stickers on Procreate then send them to the Cricut Design Space to have them printed and cut on the Cricut Joy. But of course, if you don’t have a Cricut Joy yet, you can always follow this class and cut your stickers by hand. Please check out the class here: https://skl.sh/3xym9wa
While I was creating this class, I also got some cute materials from the craft store and started making these Kawaii earrings. They are nothing precious but I really find the process so relaxing. If you are following me on Skillshare, I’ll be happy to send out a pair to you when you have joined my class and left a review. I only have 10 pairs to share. So I’m just sending to 10 students. Contact me if you think you should get one. Thanks!
Have a great weekend to you and Autumn greetings from Helsinki!
Time flies too fast! October is here! The last day of September was spent in Amsterdam. Soon, I will create another Travel Scrapbook from it. I was also back in Van Gogh Museum after 6 years. I didn’t have the chance to visit when I was in Amsterdam in 2019. The Van Gogh Museum is always inspiring…
The first working day of the month is always about planning the month’s work and I also added my 2022 Journal Templates here for your inspiration as you create your 2023 templates. I hope it helps! This month will mainly focus on finishing another class for Skillshare on making die-cut stickers. There was a delay there as I was waiting for the Fall Teach Challenge which starts tomorrow. Wish me all the best!
I was so happy to wake up this morning to know that my class on Monthly Bullet Journaling which was published in March has reached a 100 students. This is an achievement for me as a new teacher on Skillshare.
This weekend I created some give-aways for my next class on Making Die Cut Kawaii Snacks Stickers on Cricut Joy and Procreate. I got some cute materials from the craft store and just started making these cute pairs of earrings. I really enjoyed the process, although, working with small objects can be challenging at times. But I’m happy with how they turned out. I just love every one of them!
Do you want me to send you a pair of Kawaii earrings? Join me in my next class!
Look what came in the post. I’m so happy to see my design in another product. This time it’s a Scrunchie. And I just love it!
Over the last weeks, I also created some Kawaii Snacks Stickers that are now available on Redbubble. Please have a check here. If you want to learn how to make Die Cut Kawaii Snacks Stickers on Cricut Joy and Procreate, please look forward to my new class to be published next month on Skillshare.
After returning from a family trip in Canada, I was basically just preparing three classes on Skillshare. It was tough. I thought that this is it. I will never make another class again! Although, I always think such things every time I’m in the process of making a class… 🙂
So I was really happy to have finished the month of July with three classes on Skillshare. Here they are:
In the midst of this, I took a week off and went to Venice. It was in Venice when I received the news from Skillshare that my sticker class was given an award as an outstanding class. I was really really happy to be acknowledged this way. I felt my effort was worth it.
Coming home from holiday, I put together a Venice scrapbook and over the weekend, I designed 18 Kawaii food stickers that I will be printing out, cutting away and selling soon. I’m so excited and I really think they are so cute. But also, this is in preparation for another class on Skillshare that I will publish in September. I’m so excited!
So now I’m asking, “Is the summer getting over?” I can feel the air is getting cooler and of course, August is here. And in this first day of August, new ideas coming my way. I’ll let you know soon. Have a wonderful August and thank you for journeying with me!
Almost two weeks ago, I published a class on Skillshare on Creating stickers on Cricut Joy and Procreate. It was chosen as an outstanding class on Skillshare and I’m very happy to be acknowledged this way. My class has now 20 students. I’m not famous so I think it is a good number. 🙂
Please have a check of the class here. This is really a good class when you are starting out with your Cricut Joy as I explained the process step by step. See you there!
Today, I decided to stay home on this very beautiful sunny day in Helsinki and try cutting on my Cricut Joy. First,I designed a Cherry Blossom and have them cut on a Deluxe Paper. I’m happy how they turned out!
Next, I tried card making with my own lettering. This one is really fun and it gives a lot of possibilities. I’m happy with it too!
I’m really happy with my Cricut Joy. I’m excited to create more projects. The important thing I learned when using it, is to really understand why this step and that step need to be done, not just following instructions.
What projects have you created with your Cricut Joy? Let me know!
