MDUC #119: Getting punchy!


Welcome to my blog! 
Thank you soooo much for being here, I feel like I have been on a very involuntary blogbreak ;) It´s not that I´m missing my mojo or something because I can insure you my stamps are calling out to me ;) He, he,he LOL! Just got a lot of things going on in my personal life. Besides that I got my first big examination to leave in for review next friday. Hopefully the professor will like my work and give me his approval. Actually my goal is to pass with great credit ;) So I´m a busy bee! Hoping you wont forget about me ;) 

Well, I´m here to tell you about something I simply can´t miss out on ;) There is a new challenge at Magnolia Down Under today! And this time we wanna see you get punchy! Use punches or dies on you project (as well as at least one Maggie image and or a Doo hickey die) and you´re in! 
I´m so honored to be part of this amazing team, we have so much fun togheter :) We are all there for each other and I´m so proud to call them my friends. Love you guys! 
Besides that they are all VERY talanted, take a look at what their makes this week here

I made another one of those lushious bookcards. This time I wanted to alter the measurements a little because I love to embellish a LOT so I needed more space ;) This is 15 cm * 13 cm. 
Tilda is always awesomely cute but this one is my fav from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. She is such a doll :) She is inked with distressers and I´m proud to say this is my first ever creation that includes red that I´m truly satisfied with :) Red is one of those colors I never seem able to work really well with so a huge step for me ;) The papers are from the latest PION design collection called "Waiting for Santa II" I´m so into their papers, they are amazing! 
I followed this month sketch over with the awesome ladies at CLP challenges and it looks like this:  

It´s a keeper ha? Had so much fun with it, thank you for your always stunning sketches and very inspirational  projects! 
I´d also like to join in with the awesomely talanted ladies over at Wild Orchid challenges where they a theme of christmas fun right now. 

Are you curious about those brown stars on the strings? Me too! He,he,he! I recieved them as a gift from very talanted and cute Kathy. If you haven´t visited her before you simply must! Stunning projects! Thanks sweetie, I love it! The ponsiettas are made with a marvellous puch by Nellie Snellen. The tree is a die from the new Magnolia sweet dreams collection. I added some faux snow from Panduro Hobby to both the santa hat and tree. 







Thank you so much for being here!

Wee, isn´t she indeed a precious present?


Hi everybody! 
I want to share another one of my projects featuring my all new Wee stamps illustrated by the amazingly talanted Sylvia Zet today.
Decided to make my very first Bookcard inspired by my lovely friend Annette that keeps creating marvellous bookcards time and time again. I had to search the net after a great tutorial though and I found one at the stunning blog by the talanted norweigan lady called Wenche. Thank you for sharing!

I bought this specific Wee stamp as part of a kit containing all of the absolutely beautiful images that Sylvia made exlusively for SCACD. It´s called Precious present and that is what she really is! I´m sooo in love with her! 
The patterned papers I have used are from Magnolia (the pink ones) and the purple and white one is from Inkido and I bought that years ago so about time I found a place for that, ha? ;) 
The little sweetheart is inked with Copics. All flowers are from WOC and the alphabeth stickers are from Basic Grey. The shabby chic little lock comes from Melissa Frances and the filmstrip ribbon is of course by Tim Holtz. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I attended a scrapevent this saturday and I just didn´t seem to be able to get anything done?? Hm? Howcome? Sometimes that happends to me..;) 
Have a great day! 





Thank you so much for looking today!

I {heart} the Sylvia Zet images


I made a card just for the fun of it :) Ever since I first noticed the amazingly cute images by awesome illustrator Sylvia Zet I fell like a rock! I´m so in love with the cute Wee stamps :) I haven´t really gotten around to work with them until now because they are now available in rubber both at Whimsy stamps and SCACD. So of course I had to shop like a maniac and now they are finally here in my home :) I´M SO HAPPY! ;) 

First off is this little incredible Winter fairy. Look at that adorable face! My God! ;) 
Right up my alley ;) Hope you like it as much as me :) 




Thank you so much for looking today!

Anonyme Scrappere: hvit på hvit


If you are here to see my BLOG HOP post for Little Darlings and Scor-pal, please click 

YAY! Time for a new challenge with us ladies over at Anonyme Scrappere today :) 
This fortnight we would like to see you create something with just one color in mind, namely WHITE 
I made my first white on white card a few weeks ago and I loved it. I have seen them around on my friends blogs and as much as I have loved their makings I´ve been a wee bit scared og trying it myself. You should though and join us! Besides there are diffrent nuances of white and for instace I have used an ivory white bow that I bought when I visited the Maggiestore and two flowers from WOC in the same nuance. 
I choose to work with a Magnolia image from the christmas collection of last year. I think this cutie is so sweet and she seems perfect for an all white card ;) Added stickles star dust to both the image, flowers and snowflakes. The snowflakes are actually made with my edge punch from Martha Stewart and is what you are supposed to throw away ;) 
Tilda is colored with distresser on 300 g watercolorpaper. The lush rose is a Prima flower and the delisious ribbon is a treasured gift from my dear friend, Dena. Thank you sweetie! I love it! 

Please check out the amazing creations by my teamies here






Thank´s for looking today!

Deep ocean challenges # 10: Fall colors

OMG, I can´t believe this!
I´m here to tell you we are kickstarting our tenth challenge over at Deep Ocean challenges today, time truly do flies by ;) 
This time we are embracing the fact fall has grabbed it´s hold on us. I have told you before fall is not by any means my favorite time of the year but I try to stay positive ;) I´m thinking of cozy things like sitting undernieth the blanket with Johan whilst the candles are burning in the background. Now that´s a thought I LOVE ;) He,he,he! 
When you look at this card, you can probably see I haven´t been usuing colors within my comfort zone either ;) I usually only do orange on the pumkins on my halloween cards. I think this Tilda is truly amazing though so I think the end result is quite satisfying anayway ;) 
She was part of last years christmas collection (Magnolia) and the reason I´m so fond of her is that lushious hair and the fact she can be used for just about any card ;) 
The patterned papers are from Prima, a 6*6 paper pad called Fairy Flora and it was released last fall. I love them but I have been afraid to cut into them because they are very colorful. ;) 
The lovely sentiment is from Whiff of joy and the fall leaves are from Prima. All flowers from WOC. The corner adornments is a gift from my friend Kylie, thank you sweetie! I love them :) 

I followed the amazing sketch over at the Pink Ink sketch challenges when creating this card, here´s what it looks like: 


Thank´s for the amazing inspiration cards sweeties! Loved working with this sketch :) 

This card is also the second of the KAOS awards I´m sending off to three crafters I admire. This one is for Maria. I will never forget her first comment in my blog and my first visit back at hers. She is so talanted and I love to see the beautiful cards and Lo´s she creates. Thank you, girlie! 

Before you go you shouldn´t miss out on looking at the gorgeous projects made by my teamies, here

Magnolia Open house 2011


If you are here to see my new creation for MDUC click here

For those of you that are like me, very into Magnolia stamps ;) I have written up this post about my day yesterday. Magnolia arranged an open house with great prices and the release of the new Sweet Christmas dreams collection in focus. I´m so lucky to live in Sweden an being able to attend this great event. 
I also met lot´s of my crafting friends! I hope that wasn´t the last time..
Being there meeting all of these cuties and now as I´m writing this post up I feel like a child on christmas eve :) I can hardly believe I got to meet these awesome ladies! 
On the picture above I´m togheter with one of my teamies in Magnolia Down Under Challenges, I bet you all know about her already since she makes the most gorgeous creations for Magnolia. Her name is Camilla S and I discovered her blog very early on and I have always loved seeing what she makes and her coloring is so beautiful - top class! 
I also had the opportunity to meet another one of my fabby teamies, Janne and you can see a picture of that below


Janne also makes the most beautiful creations! She is a new addition to the MDUC dt group and what an excellent choice that was. Make sure you check out her blog becuase it´s filled to the top with awesome things! As if that wasn´t enough they had brought some more Norweigan candy to the candystore ;) This talanted lady´s name is Auhild and I´m so happy to have met her (although I have to tell you and yes I´m ashamed ;)) I didn´t realize it was her until I was in my car on my way home...:o OMG! Norweigan and swedish are quite the same and let me tell you when they talked to each other I felt like an alien ;) He,he,he! So...I´m happy to say I hugged her but I should have given her some proper congrats becuase she is the TOMIC guest this week! I´ll say them here instead Auhild! You make the most awesome creations, girl! 


I also got to meet these stunning friends; Hanne who has the blog Papirdilla! YAY! I´m a huge fan of her work, so I jumped right on and hugged her to ;) He,he,he! She is one of the greatest masters of the shabby chic style and her Maggie cards are to die for!
Lillemor, whom is also a part of the Magnolia dt and I was absolutely blown away to see her amazing creations live - my God, I knew they were beautiful but phew, they´re truly gorgeoues! She had used a material that is new to me, wellum, and I have to buy it - looked absolutely smashing!

Here she is togheter with another very talanted crafter, Sassa, whom is a dt for hÄnglar & stÄnglar amongst others ;) I have known about her before but I have never met her. She was such a darling too! I hope to see her again. She sat with Camilla S in her coloring workshop and let me tell you - she colors in the most awesome way!

Camilla H was also there and she showed how she makes her shaker cards and in front of her was some utterly beautiful creations, I´m so happy I got to see some of them IRL :) Stunning beyond words! And let me tell you - she´s such a sweetheart taking our pictures I ended up having none of her...*sob, sob* I can´t believe I missed out...I will have to ask her if I can get one from her own when she posts about this day later on ;)

I also missed meeting me other MDUC friends! I hope we get to meet someday: I KNOW we would have loads of fun!

Thank´s for checking in with me today!

MDUC # 117: Halloween


YAY! Time for a new challenge at MDUC tonight! 
We want to see you create something with Halloween in mind this time. 
I made this bag for my daughter Signe. We don´t really celebrate Halloween that much here in Sweden but as you know kids do just about anything for candy so she wants to go trick or treating. ;) I´m going to pick her friend up and then we will all head out. The girls are going to be the cutest witches ever ;) 

Please head on over to the challenge blog to look at the amazingly beautiful creations made by my teamies, inspiration guaranteed!

I also want to join two other Magnolia challenges with this bag, both of them also have a halloween theme. 
One of them is Tomic (the official Magnolia Inspiration challenge) and they want us to create something other than a card so my trick or treat bag will slip in just fine ;) I really heart this challenge but I rarely have the time to join in so I´m so happy to be able this week. Have you seen the gorgeous creations they made for us? 
The other one is Magnolia-licious challenge, it´s the very first time I join them and I feel very exited. Beautiful projects there as well! 






Thank you so much for checking in with me today!

Today I´m here to showcase another one of my Magnolia cards. Signe, my daughter, is four years now and boy, I´d love to be too beacuse it seems to me she´s invited to birthday partys every weekend at the moment ;) Gotta love a fiesta, right? However, I don´t picture mine filled with four year olds. ;) He, he, he!
Tomorrow it´s time to celebrate Ebba´s birthday. She get´s along really well with Signe so she´s really looking forwards to it and I was overwhelmed when she asked me to make a card for Ebba. AUW! Cute, I love my little girl, she´s my biggest fan for sure ;)

It´s not really "my" week at Magnolia Down Under but I just couldn´t resist to join anyways. If you want to join in we are arranging a colourchallenge. Use the colours: PINK WHITE and GOLD. We wan´t to take the opportunity to join in the cause to raise awareness of breast cancer in choosing this theme. Head on over to the challenge blog to take a lookie on all of the gorgeous cards created by my teamies, you are in for some serious inspiration. So be ware because you´re going to run right to your craftroom to get started ;)

Over at Sketch Saturday they have yet another amazing sketch for us to follow, I joined last week as well and when I saw the new sketch I just couldn´t resist ;) I´m a sucker for great sketches and when you are at the point of no inspiration or just don´t know where to start they are simply amazing.


Tilda is coloured in with distressers on 300 g watercolourpaper. Patterned papers from Prima (the new Romantique 6*6 paper pad) and a to me all new brand, Simple Stories (Baby steps 6*6 paper pad). The alphabet stickers are from BG and all of the flowers are from WOC. As you can see in the pic below I added loads of stickles star dust from Ranger on the image. The edger punch is from MS.





Thank you so much for looking :)
