Confirmation card

Confirmation time is closing in here in Sweden and today's creation is a Confirmation card. I wanted to keep it fairly white, but still with a touch of colour, so I painted the lavender roses with white and painted a few punched out butterflies with Martha Stewart craft paint. I really love that about having paints at home - you can always paint your embellishments to suit your creation - you don't always  have the right colour embellishments at home, right?

More inspiration and list of suppies for this project can be found in the Hobbyworld blog.

Take care!

Elsa - dear friend

This is Elsa, a very dear friend of mine - AND sister-in-law - she just happen to hook up with my brother... ;-) I guess she likes our family.

She's smart, beautiful, and so much fun to be with! You wouldn't believe half of the things we've been up to together... *teehee*

List of supplies can be found @ Pyssloteket.

Painted mugs

I had some old chipped mugs that I wanted to throw away, but I needed to replace them with new ones. These mugs I found at a local store - just 5 Skr a piece! I bought a bunch and used my easy to use Martha Stewart craft stencils and craft paint to make them more personal. This is how some of them turned out:

Easter tag

I've made a tag that could go well with a flower or a gift to give away for Easter. Maybe to someone who doesn't eat sweets, but still deserves a little something?

April Challenge @ Hobbyworld

I realise that there is a lot of Easter creations in my blog at the moment, but Easter is soon here and this year I really felt like doing Easter cards, eggs, etc. - and I haven't before. Today's post shows my inspiration for this month's challenge @ Hobbyworld - April's theme is EASTER - surprise! ;-)

This month we want you to create a project on the theme Easter - check out the other designer's fabulous creations if you want some more inspiration!

The challenge runs from April 1st through April 21st, and your project has to be made specifically for our challenge and can not be combined with another challenge.

Add your project with the blue inLinkz button at the end of the challenge blog post @ Hobbyworld. Make sure that you link directly to your entry, not to the entire blog - that way it's easier for us to find and admire your entries! 

We will choose three winners and they will be announced at the end of April. This month Marianne Design are giving away the yummy prizes!

Take care!

Easter eggs

Easter is closing in and I've altered a couple of Easter eggs for Kajsa and her cousin Julius. I haven't decided what to hide in the eggs yet, but I'm thinking a small gift AND some sweets - I'll see what I can fit in the eggs - they're not very big. I hope they will be happy anyway!

Details about supplies can be found in Hobbyworld's blog - if you are curious - and you can also find the rest of the team's Easter eggs! Last week was Easter egg week so there's loads of inspiration to be found there! Don't hesitate to take a peek! :-)

Take care!

Dad's birthday card

Today is my father's birthday, and we'll all celebrate him all night long! Me and Kajsa have made a birthday cake for him, and we've bought a great gift for him together with my mother and my brother and his family. I really hope that he'll be happy with how the day turns out!

Of course I've made him a card, too:

Now, I'll continue to enjoy this lovely spring day!

Take care!

PL - Clean & Simple

This last weekend I showed a project life-page in Hobbyworld's blog - a PL-page that was very clean & simple. It was so much fun to do, and I'm sure I'll try it again.

I think I have to sit down by my scrap table now - the urge to be crafty just increased while blogging this...

Take care!

Sweet Child of Mine

I just love to bring out some more splashes of colour now when spring is approaching. The page I'm showing today is one of those HAPPY layouts, and it's both because of the colourful papers AND the picture. I love this photograph of me and Kajsa!

More details about the layout can be found in Pyssloteket's blog, so please swing by for a visit if you're curious about what supplies I've used.

Take care!

Thank You

I found this card in my "to blog" folder on my computer, and realised that it's from September! Time really flies... I made it on a crop in Enköping - and I actually won the grand prize for the weekend with the help of this card as the "lottery ticket":

I just love the colours of this card - kraft, brown and turquoise - love, love, love the combination. What's your favourite colour combo - if you have one?

Take care!
