Love and Lace (DOC #44)


Oh...so Im here to let you in on the new theme over with us at Deep Ocean challenges :) It such an easy peasy one, at least for all of us romantics ;) Its time for LOVE and LACE folks :) 

So i told you about Signes birthday celebration invitations this weekend. This is for the second little girl named Lilja, she turns five and will celebrate at an indoor play land. I have used one of the Tilda's from the latest Magnolia collection and she's such a sweetheart, don't you think? She is colored with my di´s on 300 g watercolor paper by The Langton, I bought it at Hjerteboden and you can find it here. The heartstamp I used as a background behind Tilda is also a Magnolia stamp thatI stamped it using Spun sugar and the sentiment is also by Magnolia. The big lush rose is from Prima and the tulips is by Magnolia as well. The frame is by Tim Holtz. The letters are by Prima and I bought the lace at the Magnolia store in Borås. Papers are all Magnolia and I have sewn the edges as well as Ive given them a bit of di crackle paint picket fence a little here and there. The heart shape is cut with my Cameo. 
The doily is from Live and Love crafts and while we are on that subject...
Sandra has added a new category to the webshop and shes having a SALE!! Go check it out! Now I want to show you two more pictures of my heart shaped card: 

Do not forget to head over to the challenge blog to see all the stunning creations by my lovely teamies. And while we are on that subject...we just added two amazingly talanted ladies to our family..go check them out :)

Winged Tilda for little Olivia (MDUC #181)

Hello friends and followers! 
How are you all doing? I hope you're doing just splendid! 
My week has gone by a little extra quick I think, we have started on the renoovations of our house and we are almost finished setting the new wall for Ellas room. I think it will turn out great even though we have a very small house..

Well...its saturday evening....its my week at the lovely Magnolia down under blog and do we have an amazing theme for you! Im telling you, you simply cant miss out on this one, its way to good...;) 
WHOOT WHOOP! Its WINGS. Personally I love this theme and a wing or two can never hurt on a shabby chic project :) 
So Signe has two birthday parties coming up, one tomorrow and one next sunday. This one I made for little Olivia that turns six tomorrow. She's having a costume party and Signe wants to go as a cute little bunny. Aw, my heart melts! 
Anyways, heres my card and its...a simple 15*15 ;) Feels like I haven't done one of those since I figured out how to work my silhouette ;) lol! However I did use my cameo anyway to cut out that cute heart with wings that I placed her name and number six too. The beautiful die around the image is a Memory box die that Ive just bought, I know its been around for quit some time but I haven't gotten around to buying it until now and let me tell you I'm not the least bit sorry. Its soooo gorge! The Tilda is a real oldie but Goldie and I truly adore her, she's such a joy to color. I have used my di´pads for that as usual. Can you see the cute papers? They are also a buy I made recently and I love them too! They are also Magnolia design and I bought them from one of my fav online stores, Hjerteboden. The large flowers are Prima, the little rose WOC and the daisy is from Gurlee girl. Sentiment from Magnolia and the shabby postcard is cut out from the patterned paper. Now Id like to showcase a few more close up picks: 

Before you head off, please visit the MDUC blog to see all the beyond amazing creations made by my ubertalanted teamies.

Thank you so much for checking in with me today!

Especially for you - monochromic for LLC

Welcome friends and followers and a good morning to you all! 

Im so exited about todays posting :) I have had LOADS of fun creating this little gift set and I have been dying to show you all week ;) lol! 

Since its sunday you probably guessed its for my new dt position at Live and Love crafts and you can see this post at in the wonderful LLC store blog too. The theme for us in the DT this week is monochromic and my word..as I heard that I nearly choked..I have never done anything of the sort  before but as I told you earlier theres nothing like a good challenge! I enjoyed every second ;) 
I decided to go with black and heres my gift set: (Ops...its pretty picture heavy, hope you will bare with me to the end ;)) 

Valentines is soon right around the corner and I must say I rarely make cards like that to send to my friends because usually still exhausted from the chrissy cards ;) However I always make something special for my mum and dad and my mums fav color is black so it wasn't a hard decision.  The gift set contains a heart box where I will place a little something for them and of course a matching card. I cut both box and card with my silhouette Cameo. Easy peasy! I also chose to work with one of my fav Magnolia images. I treasure her so much! She was part of a christmas release about two years ago but she is so veritable, don't you think? Now Id like to share some more pictures with you and I will also let you know you will find all the products I used last in this post using Ink Links. Just press the picture and it takes you right to the very product in the LLC store. 

If you made it all the way here, Im very thankful! ;) lol! 
Hope to see you in your blogs! 
Lots of love!
