Challenge @ CiLi in Papers

CiLi in Papers challenge this month is to create a card or a PL card without using any patterned papers. Of course I'm up for this challenge!! :D

This is my PL card and the page it belongs to:

As you can see I picked up some things from the photos - pink and yellow, silver and the grid stamping from the tea-strainer, and of course some hearts. Did you notice the little heart in my tea...? I just love making my own cards for PL - it gives me the opportunity to get the colours exactly the way I want them, or I can have the text I want. :)

Anyway, wish me luck in the challenge! :D Thanks CiLi in Papers for the inspiration!

Take care!

Challenge @ ELB

En liten butik is hosting a challenge this month - a challenge where you are supposed to make something in the name of LOVE. You are required to use red and/or pink, but you can use other colours too. I've made a card:

I've started to look for more challenges now and find it sooo much fun to create this way! This makes me do things I might not normally do. :)

Take care!

Challenge @ Design in Papers

I spent some time crafting with my daughter tonight and I made a card for a challenge on Design in Papers blog. The challenge was to follow a sketch and create something - here is the sketch and my card:

The card became more clean and simple than I expected - but I like it anyway. I used Prima's colour bloom sprays to make the paint running down the card. :) Don't you just loooove colour and paint?! :D

Take care!

A Steampunk Challenge from Tesa

This week we have challenged each other - all the girls on the Hobbyworld team had one challenge each. A challenge to create in a way we're not used to, or we think is difficult. Therese / Tesa challenged me to create something in a steampunk style. Oh. My. God. It was difficult - but I made it! :D Here's the result - a London layout:

Check out the blog for list of supplies - AND for the other team members challenge creations. :)

Take care!

Card tutorial @ Hobbyworld

This week I've made a tutorial on how to make cards in different shapes using dies. It's very easy if you have a die cutting machine at home, and a few dies to use. For the full tutorial, please visit the Hobbyworld blog today.

The cards I've made for this tutorial look like this:

Stay tuned - I have the result of a difficult challenge to show you later on today as well... ;)

Take care!

Favourite city

I have a few favourite places and London is one of them - a city which has a lot to offer and is unbelieveably fun to visit and to stroll around in. The last time I visited was the summer of 2013 and I had an afternoon all to myself and I just walked and walked. I passed two Starbucks (a girl needs refreshments), Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and London Eye. The weather was lovely and I took many pictures to bring home - one of them is glued to today's layout.

Please visit Hobbywotld's blog for more information about supplies.

Take care!

A Gift Kit for Pyssloteket

Today it's my turn to inspire from Pyssloteket's blog. The creation of the day is a gift kit with a bag of tea, some chocolate, and (not in the picture) a nice tea mug. I brought this gift when I was invited to join a small at home crop late last autumn.

Take care!
