Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

I’ve started on my Christmas cards. Love making them, they are my favorite themed card. It was pure joy to bring out the holiday stash. I found this beautiful MME paper which I’ve hoarded for I don’t know how long.Three years or. Time to use it! :)

Happy Holidays 2

I’ve used Amy’s fab sketch from Jingle Belles.

It’s a great one – perfect for clean and simple and quick cards (this one took like 15 minutes). Most of the card is done once the paper is glued down to the card base. I added a stamp and some lace and twine. Done.

My second card is this week’s Reprint project. I used the cutest little bear stamp and Reprint Basic Collection Pastel 6x6.

A close up. :) I stamped the bear twice, colored it with distress ink and layered them to get some action.

To a beautiful you

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is halfway done and it feels good. Busy week for sure! But since my mojo is back, I’ve been sure to save up some time to make a few cards. Here is one of them. I had totally fun bringing out my mists and stencils. :)

To a beautiful you 1

The medallion is a clear stamp and one of the first I ever bought 6 or 7 years ago. It is still a favorite and I’ve used it over and over again. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations. Totally love it!

I’m playing with Poppy Sketch #13. Great colors, great sketch! Have to play!

And now I have to work!

Have a great day!

Best mom in the world

My mother is the best and she’s having a difficult time. Thought I’d send her some love.

Världens bästa mamma

I’m a bit rusty and my try at a shabby chick look is not the best ever. I think (hope) she likes it anyway. I pulled out some old favorites – papers, flower stamps and flower dies from Heartfelt creations and some sadly neglected sets from PTI.

I used sketch #92 from CAS(E) this sketch. Not much of a CAS card, but the sketch was great. And I’m not playing anyway. :)

Today is election day here in Sweden. I’ve always found this day special, it’s a celebration of our democracy. I hope the result will prove that openness and tolerance still rules and that we do not want any of the small minded intolerance of the SD!

Have a beautiful day!

Thank you!

Mojo hit me yesterday. Wasn’t sure it would ever return so I’m really happy. And now I’ve made three cards. I doubled this year’s card production in two hours… Hope it will stay! First card is for my mother’s neighbors. They are the most amazing people ever and I will never be able to thank them enough for all the support and love they spread.

Thank you 1

I’ve used the oh so wonderful Delicate Asters PreCut Set with coordinated dies from Heartfelt Creations. Perfect flower this time of year.

Thank you 2

I used sketch #235 from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Next card is made for Reprint. I’ve been an absent DT the past months but I intend to change that now. Info about the products can be found on the Reprint blog.

I’ll save the third one for another day. :)

Birthday Card

 

Stort grattis 2

Äntligen vår! Och vår betyder nystart, så också för mig med nytt liv med nya mål och nya uppdrag. :) Det här är mitt första projekt som Design Team-medlem hos Reprint Hobby. Yay!

Spring is here and it’s time for a fresh start! New life, new goals, new assignments!  :) This is my first card as a Design Team member of Reprint Hobby, a Swedish manufacturer and wholesaler.

Stort grattis 1

Det är ett födelsedagskort till en arbetskamrat. Den unge spolingen fyller 40 minsann.

This is a birthday card for a co worker. The young man turns 40 next week and he needs to be reminded of the fact he is finally one of us grown ups. :)

Stort grattis 3

Jag ville ha ett “manligt” kort med stänk av rosa och glitter. Vem älskar inte rosa och glitter??? Lite detaljer stämplade med Victorian velvet, stickles och glossy accent fick stå för den biten.

I wanted to make a male card with hints of pink and bling. (Everybody deserves some pink and some bling!!!) I added some stamped details in pink, some stickles and glossy accent.

Hello! How You Doin’?

Hi!

Over a month since my last post… well, life has been rough. What can I say… Since I blogged last, I’ve separated from my husband and moved to a new home. It’s been difficult and busy, but now things are falling into place. I love my apartment and I really find the new life I’ve started quite good. :) And this weekend I managed to start my internet and got my scrap space in place and managed to make not one but TWO cards! Yay!

Here is one of them:

how you doin 2

It’s a card I made to a long lost friend. We were class mates for 12 years! and good friends, but lost touch when we both moved to different regions of Sweden. She sent me a sympathy card when my dad died and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciated that.

I used some new stamps, well I bought them in New York in July, but when I got home, my dad was really ill and everything started, so I haven’t inked them up until now. The brush image in the background is from My Favorite Things and the Hello is from Mama Elephant and I totally love them both. The paper is American Crafts.

I used this fabbie sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

And I was super inspired by THIS card by amazing Jennifer Timko.

Thank you for stopping by!
