Passion for ProMarkers CHRISTMAS

Here's my second Christmas project for the Christmas/New Years challenge at the Passion for ProMarkers blog. We want to see you make anything BUT a card.

Last year for Christmas my brother gave me this digital photoframe, so I decoreated a frame for it that will match my other Christmas decorations. (this year it will be brown, gold and red). So when Christmas is over I can just remove the frame, or make a new one for the next season!
I have coloured the lace and the letters that spell out Merry Christmas in Norwegian. Others materials used are brown bazzill, design paper from Papirdesign, thickers, snow crystal punch, stickles glue, mulberry flower and some stripes of blings.

Remember to check out what the rest of the team have made as inspiration for the Christmas challenge, its so fun to see so many different types of projects.

And don't forget about all the great prizes we have for you for this challenge, a complete set of 148 ProMarker pens, gift voucher, Sugar Nellie stamps and more.

Christmas Card Article

Some weeks ago I was interviewed by Kjersti Busterud on the subject of making your own Christmas cards and I thought the article would only appear in a few news papers, but I've found out that the article is papers all over the country. So FUN!!! :)

If you want you can read the article here, here, here, here or here! Also in the paper version of Romerikes Blad, Gjengangeren and Østlendingen. (if you know of any where else, please let me know)
