Yellow and pink

Some time ago me and my DT colleague Katja had a demo in which we made a card using lovely Spellbinders dies from a recipe. I made two cards in different colours, and I embellished them a bit differently from the recipe said - here they are:

Two cards two styles

I decided to make two very different cards out of white cardstock - one with flowers and some layers, and one with almost only one layer. It's fun to try and have some variation - I think that's how I challenge myself so I don't get stuck into same-old-same-old all the time (even though I see how much of what I do is similar to the rest). Here we go:

Cozy time @ the cinema

I love going to the cinema, and I take the chance to go with my little girl every now and then. Last time we went and watched Turbo - you know, the animated film about the snail who wants to be a racing snail? We both enjoyed the film, the popcorn, and the atmosphere - even though the little one wanted to leave in the middle of the film...! I convinced her to stay, and I think she was happy about that in the end. ;)

Today I'm blogging this page in the Hobbyworld blog:

Ticket to Ride - a Fave!

One of my absolute favourite board games is Ticket to Ride. Lucky for me it's also avaliable on iPad, so I can play with my friends online as well. Love it. The photograph from this page is taken from a REAL board game, though, when we played on New Year's. I'm glad my near and dear like to play it as well!

Kurs @ Pyssloteket

Sugen på att gå på kurs?

På Pyssloteket ordnas det kurser i scrapbooking, kortmakeri, mixed media och annat inom kreativt skapande. Det som är toppen - tycker jag - är att det är små grupper och en mycket mysig stämning. Alla får hjälp och tips och vi hinner med att skapa utan stress och med lite go'fika såklart!

Nästa lördag har jag kurs i Scrapbooking clean & simple - scrapbooking för nybörjare eller för den som vill testa på att scrappa rent och enkelt. Det finns platser kvar så anmäl dig! Vi kommer att ha SKOJ!! :D

Trevlig helg!

Love Canvas

A blank canvas can be very scary. Intimidating even. When Anna gave me this canvas I know she didn't want to freak me out, but to challenge me - and I was up for it! It took some time, though, but now the canvas is ready:

Detail pictures:

When I made the canvas I started off by glueing everything down with a hot glue gun and then I painted everything with gesso before I started off with the mists and inka gold. :) I loved watching this canvas grow in front of me, but it was hard to decide when I thought it was ready... I do recommend you to try and create a canvas - it's SO. MUCH. FUN! :D

3 Mini Cards for Hobbyworld

A few days ago I posted three small cards @ Hobbyworld - three mini cards to go with a gift, a bunch of flowers or just because you'd want to send a small hello/hug/kiss to someone. Here they all are:

Ice cream break

Sometimes I forget to post my creations in my blog. I think it's probably because they're made when I'm on a roll and have created many things in a short time. Most of the time I realise what I've forgotten to show, but it takes some time... ;-) 

Here is one of those forgotten creations - a page about an ice cream break in April last year - I treated my daughter with ice cream at our local McD's - her favourite! 

I just love MME - I think this collection is the one called Find your wings and fly - patterned papers, enamel dots, stickers... I SWEAR by it!!! :-D Have you seen all the new goodies...? Oh, all the gorgeousness!!!! I think I will have to sell everything I own so I can buy all the new collections. Or maybe I'll have to choose just one - if that's ever possible?! 

Take care!

February Challenge @ Hobbyworld

Tänk att nu är Februari månad redan här! Tiden flyger fram, eller hur? Nu finns det massor av härligt krispiga tulpaner i butikerna och snart droppar det från hustaken - härligt! 

Den här månaden vill vi att ni skapar ett valfritt alster med inspiration av det härliga fotot på tulpanerna som Malin har fotat. 

Du kan alltså välja att skapa ett kort, en layout, något mixed media eller något altrat. Eller varför inte ett alster av varje sort? Smile 

Jag har valt att göra ett kort inspirerat av bildens vita tulpaner (vitt och ljusa färger) och den romantiska känslan som de levande ljusen ger (hjärtat). Känner man sig inte lite fabulous också när man får/köper ett fång med blommor?

Tävlingen pågår under tiden 1-21/2, ditt bidrag som ska vara nyskapat för den här tävlingen, mailas innan deadline. Vi vill inte att du kombinerar bidraget till vår tävling med någon annan tävling och vill att ditt alster ska vara 500 pxl bred. För att få vara med i vår tävling vill vi att du även bloggar ditt alster i din blogg och länkar till vår tävling (du måste ha bloggat innan du mailar in ditt bidrag). Tänk på att din bloggadress måste finnas med i ditt tävlingsmail. 

Vi kommer att utse tre stycken vinnare som vinner ett kit med dekorationer (värde 200 kr). 

Vinnarna kommer att meddelas i bloggen den 28/2.

It's hard to believe that February alread is here! Time really flies. In the shops you can find beautiiful and crisp tulips. 

This month we want you to create a project from the inspiration of the photo above that Malin has taken. 
The challenge takes place during February 1st until February 21st, your project shall be made for our challenge and can not be combined with another challenge. E-mail a photo of your project (maximum 500 pxl) before deadline. You must blog your project before you e-mail Helena as well. 

We're gonna choose three winners who will win a kit containing embellishments each. The winners will be revealed at February 28th.
