2014 - A Crafty Year?

I wish for a crafty 2014 - don't you?

I like to keep track of my DT stuff, challenges, crops etc. and that's why I altered a diary to write everything down in. Every year I do the same with my teacher's diary, and it's something I really enjoy! With this diary I had a GORGEOUS embossing folder from Spellbinders called M-Bossabilities Persian Splendor to use, and I think it was perfect for this project - it looks like an old book or something, don't you think?!

Thank you!

I love colour challenges, but some colours are more difficult than others - like purple, one of my least favourite colours. When I was at a crop last autumn one of my challenges was to create something using purple and beige, and this card is what I came up with:

It's always fun to succeed with a difficult challenge, such as this one, and I have to admit that I was quite happy with the result. :)

A Pastel Hug

In my post this week on Hobbyworld I'm showing a card with pastel colours, a couple of arrows, and a lot of flowers. I tried to create some layers and height using 3D-squares, and would you believe it - I refrained myself from distressing the edges of the paper! The sweet little stamp is from Marianne Design and I've coloured it with my Distress Markers.

I'm really looking forward to spring, sunshine and higher temperatures, so that's what's inspired me to make this card. Having said that I really think that we should try and make the best out of NOW. That's why me and my daughter went and visited my brother and his family today for a day of fun in the snow!! I think we all enjoyed it - both children and grown-ups! :-D Then again - aren't we all like kids in my family... *heehee*

Take care!

For You @ Hobbyworld

Don't you just love to give gifts to your near & dear? I love to do that AND to have something nice to give them away IN - a nice box or a gift bag. This last Sunday I blogged this gift bag @ Hobbyworld, and I'm still saving it for a special occasion:

One patterned paper - Two cards

Since there is ALWAYS patterned paper left overs after Christmas you can always try to use them for non-Christmas projects. In that way you use them and can allow yourself to buy NEW patterned papers for next Christmas... ;-) My first project for today is one of the Christmas cards from last year, and the second one is a birthday card on which I've used the same patterned paper!

If you want to know what materials I've used on my projects, please feel free to visit Pyssloteket's blog! :-)

Christmas Cards 2013

I don't make and send that many Christmas cards, but the few I make, I really enjoy making. Though, I always start a bit late and I have to rush the cardmaking, same thing this last Christmas... ;-) Here are some of the cards I made for 2013:

I really like how they turned out, and I think that the darker blue card is my favourite in this batch.

How do you think when you make your Christmas cards? Do you start early or in the last minute? Do you LOVE making them or do you consider it a "have-to-do" thing before Christmas?

Well, I'll put that behind me for a while now, and I'll probably start too late this year, too... ;-)

Take care!

Kurser på Pyssloteket!

Ni har väl inte missat att jag och de andra DT-tjejerna håller kurser på Pyssloteket? Nya kurstillfällen för vårterminen är nu inbokade och bland kurserna finns "Scrapbooking: clean & simple" eller "Scrapbooking: Vintage/shabby chic" med mig.

Bland de andra kurserna finns bland annat "Romantisk färgexplosion" med Ullis aka LillBlomman, "Gör en romantisk canvas" med AnnaB och "Grundkurs - Effektmedier" med Karin - många roliga kurser finns det att välja mellan och jag måste erkänna att jag är duktigt sugen på de andra tjejernas kurser... :D

En riktigt bra sak med kurserna (förutom de otroligt trevliga kursledarna såklart!) ;) är att det är små grupper - man hinner med att prata, fråga och prova på i lugn och ro. Att vi sen har nedrans skoj är ju bara en bonus!! ;)

Så, se till att boka kurser nu - till er själva eller kanske till en vän eller familjemedlem som vill prova på denna härliga hobby!

Ta hand om er & pyssla lugnt!
