September Challenge @ Hobbyworld

It's September and it's time for a new challenge over at Hobbyworld! Yey! :D

September is the first month of autumn and it is a time to harvest what nature is giving us - that's why this month's theme is autumn and harvest.  What kind of creations do you want to make? Maybe more than one? Feel free to let you creativity take over!! :D

The challenge is open for submissions 1-21 September. You submit your entry by using the InLinkz button at the end of the challenge post. 

My try to inspire you in this theme is this page with a photo from last year's Halloween - a picture of the pumpkin me and my daughter carved - I give you Mr Pumpkin:


I really hope to see MANY inspiring projects this month - so get busy creating! :D

Take care!

Notebooks for work

School has started again (I work as a teacher) and I needed some new notebooks for planning and meetings. I usually buy cheap notebooks that I embellish myself, in that way I get them the way I want. This time the notebooks were black, so I thought that it would look nice with strong colours such as green and orange and some stamping in black. I have also used some of the new dies from Spellbinders to make a label with text on.





I always try to keep my notebooks as simple as possible, since they tend to get worn down quickly. If I had glued a lot of flowers on them they would probably fall off when I often stuff my notebook into my bag and pull it out again.

If you want to know what supplies I have used, you are more than welcome to check out the details on Hobbyworld's blog.

Take care!

Card 3 of 3

Another card with several layers of white cardstock and diecuts on 3D foam squares. I love the new Spellbinder dies - just look how gorgeous they are!

Take care!


Card 2 of 3

Card number two today is a simple card with a cityscape - of course I've used 3D foam squares on it and embellished with washi tape and a few letter stickers. It doesn't have to be more complicated than that.

Card 1 of 3

Today I will show you a few good-to-have-in-your-stash-cards that I have made with Spellbinder's dies and lovely flowers among other things. The cards are a bit smaller than I usually make them - 12 cm x 12 cm instead of 14 cm x 14 cm, which is my usual size. Maybe it's time to make some rectangular or round cards?! :)




The first card of the day has a white base with black and pink flowers. The banner underneath the flowers is cut out from a patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. I use a lot of 3D foam squares to make sure it doesn't look flat - I like a bit of distance to the card base.

Come back later today if you are curious - I have two more cards to show you! :) Check out all the details about this card on the Hobbyworld blog.

Take care!

This year's new teacher's diary

Voilá! This year's teacher's diary is all pimped and ready for a new school year:

Fontana di Trevi

In May this year, me and my darling went to Rome. It was my first time in the capital of Italy and I loved it! The hotel was fantastic, the food wonderful and there were so many things to see - we could have stayed much longer. This is definitely a city I'd like to visit again!





When I created this page I was challenged to make something out of a coffee filter - I used a Sizzix die and cut out what seemed to be a million little petals, all glued together they made a lovely flower. Not sure I could do it justice, though, mine looks a bit ruffled. I sprayed it with Prima's colour bloom sprays in two different colours before I glued it down right next to my photo.

Mum's birthday gifts

In July we celebrated my mother's 66th birthday - the weather was fantastic and we had a lovely day and evening together. Of course I had made her a card and it matched the wrapping on her gifts - do I need to say that she loves turquoise? ;)

White Card for Pyssloteket

Today's card is a monochromatic card for a co-worker's sister who turned 40 earlier this year. I just love to create these clean, crisp, white cards - and this card fold (recessed window card) is a favourite of mine. I go back to making them, again and again. :)

Gifts for Kajsa's teachers

My daughter Kajsa is starting pre-school this autumn and when she had her last week at kindergarten we gave her teachers some gifts. Everyone recieved a small lantern with a scented candle, togehter with a box of chocolates. Of course I embellished the gifts and Kajsa wrote her namn on all three of them:






On the back of each tag I wrote a note from Kajsa and her family in case I could not hand over the gifts personally.

Take care!
