DIY: Cutout Washi Tape Cards

Posted by beritas

Another month has passed and it's time again for some Birthday Cards DIY tutorial! I really liked this Mother's Day Card idea and decide to give it a try.

These cards are very easy to make, but they do take a lot of time. It took me about 2-3 days to finish 10 cards...

Supplies

Fold your extra card in half and draw also just half of whatever motif you want. I made a heart, a birthday cake and a balloon. 

Drawing

Cut the shape out...

Cutting

... and place it on your actual card.

Placing

Now have fun taping your card with the washi tape.

Taping

With a cutter or an Xacto knife cut out your motif but be careful not to cut to deep into the card. You can also even out the edges of the card.

Cutting again

Afterwards write your message with different markers, colors, whatever you want to use and you're done!

Writing

I loved these cards! It's really a lot of work, but they are super pretty!

  • EAT: now i have to go out again to buy potatoes and make these French Fries!
  • DRINK: how about adding a little bit of rum to this Lemonade?
  • WATCH: being a huge fan of gangster movies like The Godfather trilogy, Scarface, Goodfellas and so on, i decided to give Mob Wives a try and let me tell you... what a lot of... well, you know. It's funny and sad at the same time... i have always asked myself how people can be so blind and really believe that there is nothing wrong with what they do... 

I wish you a lot of fun!

On other news: i know the Blog has stalled a little bit lately and i apologize for that, but as i told you in my hormones post life has been somewhat complicated this past month. I'm trying to find my way into a normal routine again, but it's taking more time than expected. I also already know the results from the IVF treatment, but i hope you understand that i'm not ready to share just yet. I still have to figure things out for myself and all i ask from you is time and patience. In the meantime look forward some DIYs and a short family vacation! :-)

  • EAT: Mmmhhh... elderflower cordial is pretty popular here in Germany. I have never made my own, but i think i will give it a try to make this cake
  • DRINK: OMG! I need this milkshake like right now!
  • WATCH: The hubs and i spent the whole week watching the first season of Forbrydelsen (The Killing). THE BEST crime series ever! For all of you who have not seen it, please stop whatever you're doing and watch it! Mind you: the original one from Denmark from 2007! I have not seen the remake but honestly i don't want to. This is just TV at it's best! we're sooo looking forward to the next seasons!

Have a nice weekend!

Why is it so hot in here?

Posted by beritas

This is a question i have been asking myself for the past 3 weeks, to which the hubs always replies: "It's not! It's probably your hormones..."

Oh yes, hormones... welcome to my own little hell. Even puberty knocked on my door again; it missed my face!

3 weeks ago i started taking hormones for the IVF treatment and i have to tell you, it's been a huge pain in the a**. I've been having hot flashes and all of a sudden i feel like 17 again with my face full of pimples. I've been surviving on toast, because i get super hungry, but that is the only thing that does not make me want to puke as soon as i smell it. Most of the time i feel like crying for any reason whatsoever...

Do you know what the weirdest part is? besides all those "problems" i've been feeling great! Does that even make sense? I'm just as happy as Pharrell Williams :-)

Another thing that makes me happy is the fact that all this hormon taking is practically over! Weeeeeeeee... i mean it's not completely over, but the worst part is already behind me. No i'm still not pregnant, well more like i still have to wait a little while to do a blood test and obviously i'm super nervous! I'm trying to be optimistic without getting my hopes too high. Statistically speaking, only 1 out of 3 women get pregnant and of course i'm hoping to be that one. 

Apart from that... well, not much ;-) I turned 31! I met family and friends and i have to say they know me too well, i got awesome books, spa day stuff, a yoga mat... my brother was also here! It was a nice weekend... we built a book shelf! it turned out quite cool, i'll be showing it to you in the next days (first i have to take decent pictures and clean).
