Christmas cards

 Just dropping by to show you some Christmas cards that I made with the cutest guy ever. James Bear from Lili of the Valley is officially one of my fave stamps for this holiday! :) 

I managed to make three cards when I was crafting with Livi & Juleskrulla some weekends ago. They are all made from last years Christmas scraps. Thanks for looking :)

Skissedilla 81

I'm continuing to do things I normally don't when it comes to crafting and this time I've been scrapping.. As I'm home from work this week and I'm suppose to keep calm and not do to much.. spending time in my wonderful craft room is a great thing to make time fly! ;) So here is a layout I made with an old photo of my self for this weeks sketch @ SKISSEDILLA.

TFL! :)

Christmas with 2S4Y

  Another one of my fave sketch challenge blogs is Laura and Kazan's 2 SKETCHES 4 YOU, their handmade sketches are just so great and challenge me to keep things more simple then just adding on endlessly. So with this weeks sketch I made a tea light card that I found the directions on how to make at Marianne's blog. She made a fab tutorial for StampArtic. I gave this to my grandmother and now I have to make 15 more for her friends.. *puuuuuh*

The gorgeous paper is from 3NDY PAPIR, dies from Spellbinders, flower from Prima, stamp from Inkido and charms from Kortgleder.no

Thanks for looking!


Lunch bag project #2

Here's my second project that I made with the brown paper lunch bags that we have at the store. This time I made it as a bag and decorated it with some gorgeous papers from PAPIRDESIGN, a vintage image, some gold embossing powder, distress ink coloured ribbon, charms from Kortgleder.no, stamp from Kort & Godt and punch from Martha Stewart.

Again this is not my regular style, but it was fun making something different so with two different styles from my regular one I'm hoping to capture more inspiration for this year Christmas production!

Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments girls!!

Christmas with BO BUNNY

During the last week I have created things that's really different from what I usually make, but I've had a blast doing so. I have a tendency to get stuck on the same track and just keep playing it on repeat.. But hopefully during this fall I will continue to create thing with different styles. Connie has really inspired me with her Artsy style and I blame her for my latest wish list of Tim Holtz stamps ;) I'm taking her up on her challenge to use artsy background on my "cute style" cards! So stay tuned to see how that turns out!!

But the card I want to show you is one of five projects I'm doing with brown kraft lunch bags. I have used to sheets of Bo Bunny pattern papers, a text stamp, a set of MS punches (Deco fan), Cuttlebug embossing folder and some plain card-stock to make this.

The paper bag is attached with a thick kraft ribbon that we sell at the store in rolls.

 Am I overloading you all with pictures lately or do you prefer to see more detailed photo's?

TFL and for your comments!

ARTSY CARDS inspired by Connie

The ever so talented and lovely Connie had a demo on how to make your own backgrounds at the shop where I work yesterday. And seeing as it was ages since I last made some of these backgrounds, I felt very inspired to give it another go. I had been lucky enough to attend one of Connie's classes earlier and remembered some of what she had thought me ;)  And here are the results of last nights workshop:

Don't miss Connie's classes at STEFFENS this fall either.
28. oktober : Bladgull og alkoholblekk
4. november : Bladsølv og metalltape
22. november : Kreative Tager

For more details please visit the STEFFENS blog.

Thanks for looking and a huge thanks to CONNIE for the inspiration!! :) 

{Friday Sketchers} - X-mas

  One of my fave sketch blogs for cards is FRIDAY SKETCHERS, not only do they have fab sketches but I love their inspirational sample cards! So with this weeks sketch (#123) I made a X-mas card as I have tons of them to make before November ends.. I have used papers from 3NDY and INKIDO. The image is from the backside on one of the 3NDY papers.

TFL! :)

*Picture overload post*
Monday and Wednesday this week I had two card making classes at work. We made two thick cards with plenty of layers and volume. So I thought I would show them to the rest of you to as I have not posted any lately here on the blog. 

Thanks for looking and I wish you all a fab weekend!
