Friday Sketchers #87 + Happy 101

Finally I had time to make another card. And this one like the previous two is made with the Basic Grey - Origins collection. I keep stacking up on paper but never use it all, so I figured I would make more then one card with it before I put it away to collect dust. I had some stamps from In2Stamps I had to ink up, and I fell in love with the Mommy's Caring stamp from the Get Well Collection. So here's my card with that stamp, made using the sketch at FRIDAY SKETCHERS.

  • Stamps: In2Stamps - Get Well Collection - Mommy's caring.
  • Paper: Baisc Grey - Orgins
  • Medium: Memento Inkpad Tuexdo Black and ProMarkers - Cool Grey 1, 3 and 5, Meadow Green, Leaf Green, Bright Green, Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Primrose, Lemon, Yellow and Blender. Distress - Vintage Photo. Glimmer Mist - Lime Twist
  • Embellishments: Half pearls from Kaiser Craft, Tiny Alpha from Making Memories, Flowers from Irene's Garden (sprayed with Glimmer Mist) and Wild Orchids.
  • Tools: Martha Stewart Edge Punch - Doily Lace. Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Scalloped Squares Large, Shapeabilities - Ribbion Tag Trio. SU corner punch.
Thanks for looking and for the comments! :)

I also got this Happy 101 award from Turid (Knerten) and Madeleine. Thank you so much ladies!! :) The rule of this award is to write up 10 things that makes you happy.

I'm a easy pleaser but things that make me happy is my family, my friends, living life, nice comments left on my blog, candy (I'm a sugar addict), good food, gathering good friends, summer, driving my slug bug and unexpected visitors!

Turid also gave me this one.

I'm passing these awards onto my followers, so if you want it why not pinch it :)

Happy 60th

When I made the Substitute Design Team card for Sukkersøtt I also made this matching card for a 60th birthday my Granny is going to next week. I love the vintage images that Gudrun has made for Minne-Hjørnet, making a card like this one doesn't take all night.

Papers are from Basic Grey, Vintage image from Gudrun (for Minne-Hjørnet), Text stamp from Stempelglede, flowers from Wild Orchids and Irene's Garden, Bling from Prima (birthday gift from my Brother, yeahiii), lace from Ask Antikk og Interiør. The paper edges are blended with Vintage photo.

This weekend will be spent sleeping and inking up my new In2Stamp stamps, and getting ready for some more classes at Steffens. I'm having a wedding invitation and place cards class on the 10th of February. There's still some empty chairs, so if you need some insipration on how to make easy and gorgeous invitations for your wedding this summer why not sign up.

Thanks for looking, I wish you all a great weekend!

Sukkersøtt - DesignerVikar

Many of you already know of the Norwegian challenge blog called SUKKERSØTT and I was so lucky to be asked by the uber talented Camilla (from Millis hobbyverden) if I wanted to be a substitute for her this Friday. And since I love Sukkersøtt I could not say no, even though I felt a pressure to perform I was so excited.

This weeks challenge is a sketch made by Kristine. I made a card that my Grandmother had ordered as she was going to a 70th birthday. I also made a matching card for a female that I will show you over the weekend.
Here's the sketch.

And here is my card.

Thank you so much for looking and I love all the sweet comment you leave me! ;) Make sure you check out all the other substitutes creations to, I'm wowed by all the gorgeous inspiration! Have GREAT weekend!

Mosaic Card

I got the inspiration to make this card after visiting the StampARTic blog. And seeing as we have the double sided glue sheet at the store I figured this would be great to bring with me to work.

  • Stamps: Norsk Stempelblad
  • Pattern Papers:Scenic Route - Providence serie
  • Embellishments: Flowers, metal corners.
  • Tools: Mix of flower punches,
  • Medium: Memento Ink, Glitter glue

I also received the Kreativ Blogger award from Camilla. I have posted the 7 facts on my blog a bit back here. So if you want to know 7 unuseful facts about me, scrool back! And a BIG thanks to Camilla for sharing the award with me! :)

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend!

Another Valentines project

Yesterday I was on a roll, for sure. I made the napkin rings, and this little cute box. I filled it with chocolate heart. This is also very easy to make, buy a plain box (the heart box is from Steffens and cost only 8kr), paint it with Dabber (or any acrylic paint), blend the edges with Distress, glue a lace around the top lid, add some flowers and a text ticket - WOLLA!

Here's the box with the lid on.

All supplies can be bought at STEFFENS.

This little project will fit the celebration challenge at Sukkersøtt, so I'm giving my second entry a go this week (must be a new record for me, lol)

Thanks for looking!

If you have any Valentines projects in the making, put them on your blog and leave a link with your comment so I can check it out!

PS, today I'm bringing Brownies to work, so if you are in the area, drop by :D

Trykkpressa - Dorull (toilet paper roll)

Yeahii, I finally made something for TRYKKPRESSA again. This month the challenge was to make something creative out of a empty toilet paper roll. So after some brainstorming I was just blank, everyone had seen the albums with tags, and I didn't want to make a direct copy of the inspiration picture. So I asked my ex Joachim (he is committed to me for life as a creative consultant when I'm all out of ideas, it was all in the breaking up agreement! LOL) and he came up with the idea of making napkin rings. So as Valentines is coming up I made some with a Love theme. These will go with something else that I will show you tomorrow. So remember to check back tomorrow. But enough babeling, here are my napkin rings:

I made these by cutting a roll in two and glued a pattern paper over, tied a tulle bow and attached a flower. Fun and easy for when you are in a hurry and need to spice up your table before your guest arrive!

Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments you leave me!!

Skissedilla 41 - To late..

I have decided that 2010 is going to be the year when I start scrapping. And I thought I would start it off with a sketch from Skissedilla. I have only made a hand full of LO's in my crafty careerer so I'm excited to see how it goes! Today I had some time and sat down and made a LO. Photographed it and went to make this post, to find out the deadline was yesterday ;) So I guess I get 10 point for the effort and 0 for the accomplishment.

The LO has a picture of my late grandmother and her siblings, and the title says: "From the Time you were Young".

Here's the layout I made with Skissedillas Sketch #41:

SteinkjerScrepp{a} 2010

Guess who is going to SteinkjerScrepp{a}? I got my work schedule today and after a quick switch with Sabine I could confirm that I was headed to Steinkjer in April. I have never been north of Røros here in Norway (yeah yeah yeah I know.. but I have travel a lot in foreign countries instead) so I'm looking forward to seeing a new part of Norway.

I will be holding two ProMarkers classes. You can sign up for these once the registration is open, follow the SteinkjerScrepp{a} blog for the announcement.

If you are going to the meet and want to get your hands on some ProMarkers (or Cartridge paper) you can pre-order them at Steffens web shop and I will be happy to bring them with me to Steinkjer. (Note: Payment must be received within April 7th, and add comment "Ship with Ida to Steinkjer")
