Fabbie Pion Design (Swedish vintage inspired paper manufacturer) has sponsored the Love Theme Challenge over at Svensk Scrapbooking this month. They also sponsored me and a team partner so that we could make inspiration samples. I’ve already blogged the layout, but here are my card and alter project (the challenge is to create a trio of layout, card and alter). I’ll also end this with a tutorial so this is a loooong post. Sorry for that!
First up a card. I’ts a pretty simple tag card, but I pimped it with beautiful paper and a fun tag top (done with my fave nestie).
For my altered project, I did another mailbox. I did one a couple of weeks ago (HERE) and got quite a few question about how to make one and promised to make a tut in Swedish. So here it comes. First the box, then a lot of Swedish. LOL.
Oki doki. Här kommer då en tutorial för brevlådan. Lite hemmasnickrad sådär. Särskilt mallarna… inte snygga men de funkar. :):):)
|Sax, musmatta (eller annat mjukt underlag), falsben, klädnypa |
|klister och ev dubbelhäftande tape (jag använder båda)|
|mönsterpapper och dekorationer|
1. Skriv ut mallarna i verklig storlek genom att först klicka på bilderna.
2. Klipp ut stommen i cardstock, och biga de streckade linjerna. För att få till rundeln så använd en musmatta som underlag och dra försiktigt med ditt falsben eller annat bigredskap längs den rundade linjen. Kom ihåg att biga på den sida som ska vara utåt!
3. Limma ihop botten. Använd gärna lim till det här, det håller bättre än tejp.
4. Skär till ovansidan. Den ska vara 19,2x12,3 (ja, jag vet, det blev väl inte jättejämna mått precis…). Limma fast. Där brukar jag limma nederdelen, men använda dubbelhäftande tape för den rundade ovandelen. Blir mindre kladd så…
5. Dags att göra locket. Klipp ut och biga precis som med själva stommen.
Den lilla flärpen fäster du under botten på stommen med lim. Inte inuti, då blir det ful kant och så syns den ju när du öppnar om du inte klär insidan också, utan fäst den under. Med lim för bästa hållbarhet.
6. Skär ut en remsa av cardstock som är 19,2 cm lång och ca 2,5 cm bred (eller hur bred du nu vill ha den) att fästa ovanpå locket. Jag gjorde min remsa lite extra bred och stansade min kant.
Nu är brevlådan färdig. Tar ca 20 minuter så det är faktiskt riktigt enkelt och kul. Nu återstår det roligaste – att dekorera. Jag gör en enkel flagga av cardstock scraps som jag fäster med en brad så att den går att vika upp när det finns post.
Gör du en brevlåda vill jag gärna se!!!! Och är något oklart så hojta. Särskilt med de förbenade mallarna som jag kan maila om det blir krångel.
Ha en fin onsdag!
…is a Swedish saying and I wont even try to translate the title of my latest layout. YES! I did a layout. Wohooo!!!! Here it is. I’m pretty pleased with it. :):):) Well, I’m pleased I finally did a layout! I need to do that more often!
The layout is my DT entrance over at Scrap-Perra’s blog (where I also explain the title, but in Swedish). I got a box filled with Pink Paislee goodies. I LOVE Queen Bee!!! I teamed it up with this fabbie sketch from Sketchy Thursdays
I’m working with the CAS style. It’s super FUN!!! The Umbrella stamp is colored with copics and topped off with some bling. Easy peasy. But I like how it came out. The design is based on Card Pattern’s sketch 103
Have a great new week folks! Thanks for stopping by!!!!
We have a beautiful sunny Sunday. It’s ice cold outside (-23 degrees!!!) so I’ll watch the glimmering snow through the windows taking care of my sick son. Poor thing got the flu.
Sunday means a new fun sketch from Pam over at 365 Cards.
We also have a new sponsor for this week:
Guylou’s provided the DT with digis so go check the 365 Cards post out for some fun and beautiful samples!!! I had problems with my printer so I never got a chance to use them. Here is my take on the sketch:
More gorgeous Riddersholm Design papers from the new line Bello Pastello. I went for a monochromatic color scheme with black and beige neutrals. The stamps, tag and dragonfly are from the Clearly Beautiful Dragonfly set from Prickley Pear. I like how it match the note pattern of the paper.
I’m off to take care of dear son. He has been crying on and off since he woke up an hour ago and realized he still has a very high fever. Tomorrow is the first trial of the annual chess tournament for fourth graders all over Sweden. He has been waiting and longing to participate in it since he started school and saw the older children do this. He loves chess. I’m helpless, cause I can’t make the fever go away. I can only hope.
CASE Study teamed up with Play Date Café this week and combined a CASE challenge with a color ditto. Super FUN! I inked up my favorite flower set from Prickley Pear and found some scraps from the Material Girl papers.
There were so much to be inspired by in Eva Dobilas fab card. I stayed pretty close, but tried to keep my own style. Check her card OUT! Yummy. And fun color challenge too!!!
Here is a detail shot on all the layers. Do you see the clear embossing on the black die cut. Love the effect of that!
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!
Have a lovely Thursday!
I just had lunch and thought I’d blog some before heading back to work. I made a quick card yesterday night. I got me some new Inkido papers and teamed them up with my Penny Black stamp set. I had forgotten how fun it is to color… LOL! This time I pulled out my Tombows, and I had this guy done in five minutes.
I used Card Pattern’s fabbie sketch # 102
Back to reading. This time it’s all about assessment. And standard testing. Yikes! I’d prefer to read some about 19’th century cow assurances or something!
This week’s The Rubber Café Challenge is all about paper piecing. I LOVE paper piecing (check out my card from last week…. LOL) and I loved making today’s card!!! I decided to use the Large Highwing Butterfly, cause I think it’s very beautiful and I’ve never tried to paper piece it before. It was a little fuzzy cutting involved, but I sure think it was worth it!!!
Do you see the tiny beige dots on the butterfly? It’s pieces from the beige polka dot paper. Fuzzy cutting, I’ll tell ya!!!! The card is simple but with lot of dimension. I love pop dots!!! :):):)
I made the card for SCS’s Featured Stamper Challenge and I lifted THIS card by Willow01.
I hope you will play with us over at The Rubber Café this week! There are still a couple of days to enter to win a $10 gift certificate to The Rubber Café web shop. Make your paper pieced project and enter it HERE.
Take care and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
This week we have a super special sketchy week with sketch challenges EVERY day! AND – the sketches are made by the DT!!! Today’s Sunday sketch is made by Wendi, and a gorgeous sketch it is! Check it OUT!
I had sooooo much fun playing with it!!! I loved the white space AND the stacked embellie part!!!
The BEAUTIFUL papers are the new Bello Pastello papers from Riddersholm Design. Do you see the soft flower pattern on the pink paper? Soooo gorgeous!!! All stamps are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. Sorot of a mix… Heheee. The flower border and the text flowers are from the Clearly Beautiful Flowers set. The cute Deer is from the last red rubber release and sentiment from the Birdcage set.
Do you see the upper corner part!?! It’s a lame try to lift my DT partner Michelle over at Prickley Pear (AND Rubber Café too!!!). She did an AMAZING card for the release Blog Hop party a while back using the flower petals to pimp her corner. Her corner is waayy more beautiful than mine and you should check it out HERE. I think it’s really clever!!!
Amy and guest designer launched a new Flashback Friday Challenge today. Not to end up like with the last one forgetting to blog, I decided to do it right away. Version 8.0 is about posting ones first altered item. Soooo here it is. From August 2007. I had been scrapbooking 6-7 months when I finally took the plunge…
It’s a purse card I did for my mom. She liked it! :):):)
I got some new stuff from Scrap-Perra yesterday. I do NOT have time to play, need to get that syllabus in today (remember…LOL), but the new Penny Black stamps was tooo cute not to ink up. So I did a fifteen minutes card, one needs a breal, right!?! The Challenge over at the Penny Black blog this week is white space, so that was PERFECT!!! LOL!
Lots of white space. And really simple again (well, what do you expect out of a 15 minute card???) :):):). I masked the hedgehog and the ladybug and colored it up with distress ink. Then some glossy accent on the bug and some distress stickles in the fur of the hedgehog. Done.
