confirmation card for twins

This weeks I have made some cards for the Sukkersøt's challenge "3d effect". We are going to Tromsø to Tom's family to be part of an confirmation, Frits and Charlotte's. So I have made one girl and one boys card. First u see my card to Charlotte.
As always I have used pleny of everything and inspired of Ronda, I have tried to use some of my old treasures.
On the first page I have several kinds of ribbon, some Prima flowers, a picture of some rose's Tom gave me the other day, gold charms and different letters.
Since the challenge is 3D, I have tried to make layers onto layers..
This card is also into:
ABC challenge "U is for".
Cute card thursday "someone special"
Sir stampalot challenge "butterflies and blossom"

There were so many things I wanted this card to have so I had to make it like a tiny album. Inside the card I sewed one more card, so on first side our blessing will come, next 3 pages are a poem my mother got for her confirmation that I think express the confirmation feeling very well. Here I have used the new collection from Heartdesign as basic. Their paper goes all the way thru the card, on all pages. Here again i have layers og paper and ribbons, butterflies ++
Inside the "second card" is the rest of the poem + some buttons and pink plastic dots from søstrene Grene.
On the last pages I have a tag + a heart button and a little paper rose, on the other side I made a envelope to put the money she will resive as the present. This one I have decorated with several ribbons, flowers, rubons ++

On Frits's card I have used paper from Maja Design, the collection "du och jag". Here 2 I have layers and layers of papers, some metall gitter, buttons, a football picture (since all he thinks of is football), some ribbons, letters and a poem.

I have always thought is it more difficult to make cards for boys than girls (wonder why, when u see what colours I normaly use... LOL).
So in here I have one the first page, made an envelope for the money present, some text, different flowers, ribbons and several layers paper. I tried to use the same papers on the other side, but glued them on in a differet direction. Here I have my little handwritten on page 3 together with some flowers.

Always when I go to "treff" I meet Nina and she always challenge me to decorate all the 4 sides of a card. Here with Frits's card I tried to make the backside nice to. I have used the leftovers from the panels I made + some buttons, same as the front page + my visitcard, that I place on all cards I make (so people know where to find me incase they want to order a card in the future..)

I hope u enjoy my cards, and hopefully they can inspire u to make some 3D effected cards. In Norway monday is our Nationalday. We are to celebrate it in Tromsø, and the weather people say it is going to be very nice weather up there, so hopefully next week I can show u some pictures from the north of Norway...

Have a nice celebration everyone!!!

Happy birthday, "Sukkersøtt" - challenge

This card I made for Morten, who has birthday today. This is for "sukkersøtt's" challenge, to make a birthday card.
Later tonight this will no longer be mine..
This card is what I call "dorull kort", I am nor sure what a dorull is in english, but hopefully u understand what is is when u see the card.
I have used different papers from Heartdesign, Bazzil, Maja + some others. Different ribbons, yarn, roses from Storeteller and Prima. RubOns and thickers. On the tag-top I edge punched it with the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart + some ribbons (organza and silk). All the paper pieces I have distressed with brown cat eye..
Hopefully he like my spring-pastel inspired card..
Have a great weekend e1. In Oslo the temerature is great and sunny so most of the weekend will be spent in the garden.

Mini album, "Thats just so cute" challenge

This challenge at "Thats Just So Cute" was to make a kit and use it to make a card, LO, Album or any other project. For a long time I have wanted to make a mini album to Per and Tommy. We was at holliday together, December 2009. At Canary Islands..
I took a deep dive into my boxes with left overs and thought this perhaps was a perfect challenge to use some of this treasures.

My album is 6" x 6.5"

I made the front page of some plastic sheets I had lying around from back in school, when I took the interior designer education. On that I glued some Hably overlay, some print outs I made when i selected the pictures + a paper trim piece.

"Seilas". From the inside of the molo u see this nice house where the marina boss live and workes, on the other side it is ocean all the way to Africe.
I had a little piece og mesh, a rose and some paljets + some thickers, and hambly + half a rubons.

This is the view from our balcony, we was just a few meters away from the beach. Here I have several left overs from different papers, I don't know what they are..
At the end of the "Molo" this was one of our favourite places for picture taking. Ocean for as long the eye could see. In this page I have used planty of ribbons and trimmed paper. I tried to keep it in blue + that little pink "M" to be that little piece of contrast..
My boyfriend Tom is of all the persons I know a "icecream lover", so this LO is dedicated to him and his passion for icecrem. I made a little origami cup, and made a little sign saying just that, I found some metal "gitter", a pink rose, some hamly ++ and stiched it on. This is the one I am most satisfied with in the tiny album..
This pictures are taken in the mountain city Mogan. Here is one of our favorite resturants onm this Island. "Enriqes". We go here every year and have the best meal!!!
This LO was the most difficult, I am not sure if I am satiesfied - but I came to that point where I just had to decide - I'M DONE, cause when I continued to glue on it just look more and more like a trash bin... So here u find a little of everything - lol
We used to have a special place in Arguinegin, a resturant with very good food, and a perfect view. It was lying up in the mountains, directly over the sea, so one of the highlights on the holliday was to spend an evening here, see the sunset and have a great meal. This time we had the sunset and the view, but with new owners, a horrible chef and an interirdesigner - "out of function" this was our last vissit at this resturant. This LO I guess is my sort of - clean and simple -. I am realy not good at that, but this one actualy works for me with so little stach on..
My last page "100 x så dyrt", it means 100 times as expensive. The first picture is from our favourite resturant EVER, Clipper in Puerto de Mogan. It is a fish they made explisit for us. This dish is not on the menue. Price: 140.- euros (175.- $ / 1100.- nkr) The other one is a "hamburger" from a lunch place. Price: 1.40 euros (1.75 $ / 11.- nkr).
The fish tasted like a piece of heaven while the burger tasted like trash or paper...
Here i had some paper pieces, hambly, thickers and a piece of an christmas decoration that was destroid of my cats last year..
that was the end of my little album, I used just things from my kit + gluedots off course. I am satisfied with it and look forward to give it to the guys tonight..

For the very first time I will join the Simon Says Challenge, with this card.

In Norway, (where I live), when u are around 14 year u go thru a Christian seremony, and u invite all your family, neighbours and frends to celebrate this with u. Up here we call this for "Konfirmasjon", probably u have this all around the world..
This card I made for Charlotte who has her seremoni in a few weeks.
This card I think is the card I am most satisfied with ever (as I kind of think, for every card i make lol).
I belive this card is called a "trifold card".
As always I have plenty of details on my cards. On this flip, I have used the same sort of ribbon but in two ways. On the uppser side I glued it between the papers and below I glued it on top. To cover the point where they meet I have glued a rose from storyteller, paited with yellow Shimmerz.
Under the flip I used some lacy ribbons that I used some purple ink on, to get a contrast to the pink and blue inside. Around the card I have used a light brown organza and a pink silk ribbon.
On the paper stock I have a piece of blue and pink Bazzil, some rose paper I found in the trashbin, and some leftovers from a Hambly sheet. The picture I have trimmed, distressed and crakeld.
This is a very fun card to make. As u see on this picture, the first squere is made so i can put the cover between them, to hold the card together. When u open the flap and the left "corner flap", there is a new panel, same size as in front. This one I have coverd with different flowers from storyteller, + some i cut out from QK and some other flower I cant remeber where I got from. There is also the same pink silk ribbon that I used on the front side.
Here u see the mid panel, after I sprayed it with some glitter mist - look alike, gold type..
When u open all the flaps u come to the inside of the card where my text will show up. I have used the butterfly edge puncher from Martha Stewart on the side + I cutted out some blue ones and glued on. Both on the top and on the tiny little pink silk ribbon piece u see in right corner.
the paper I have used for this project is "blue Damask" from heartfelt design. To distress all the edges I have used cream and bronze cat eye.
I hope u enjoyed looking at this card as much as I had lots of fun making it!!!

me + vintage = ?

The other day I found a new vintage challenge blog, and I thought that was a nice excuse to make a dive into this direction. I have never made anything with this kind of pictures, and I am not sure if what I have made can be called "vintage cards" - but I did my best and liked the ressault (atleast the 2 I present here.. )
The challenge was to make a card or something else using the picture u see over. Here are my 2 cards for this callenge:

In both cards I have used paper from Heartfelt Design, some charms and different ribbons. Both stamps are from Papir i hjertet. The flowers I have painted with Shimmerz (candle light). I have distressed all edges and corners. the lacy ribbons I made coffee colour with my espresso (Yes - it was worth it) since I didn't have any in this colour. The butterflies in the last one are from Martha Stewart's edge punch.
In my atempt tp make the pictures even older, I folded them and used some rubbing paper on the fold, and edges. I used a painters knife to get out more of the inc - hopeing to give the impression that this picture has been lying around for ages, and not just 10 minutes..
Hopefully u liked my first atempt at vintage scrapbooking, it will not be the last!!

Some new cards

It's been some weeks ago since I had the time to show u what I've done in my scrapbooking room lately. But since this is a rainy day, I woke up and thought this is the day!!

A few weeks ago I got my ScoreBoard from Martha Stewart. And finaly I could very easy make this cute little box'es. Here I post one I made for Jannicke "vår klem (Spring hug)".
I have also used martha stewart's edge punches "butterfly" together with Papir i hjerte's new paper collection.
Under here I used the butterfly punch from MS. I cutt'ed out some of the "flies" and glued them to the egde to make a more 3D effect.. This box is 6x6". Around the box i have several layers of ribbons, both organza and silk. The roses i have painted with Shimmerz glittermaling also from Papir i hjertet (my favourite store here in Norway). This days they are on sale here, so "LØP Å KJØP" is my tip of the day.

This card I made for an alternativ christian, more like a "name-day"-kind of. I used Papir i hjerte's own papers. Thay are just so lovely!!!
Here is some of the other cards I have made, they are just a ressault of happy thinking and lovely colours.

If any of u norwegian reades need a card, my cards are for sale. either some u see here, or u can contact me if u need a special card.
I also have "kort kurs" - send me a e-mail ( ) and I will send u an invitation.
Have a great day, hopefully u liked some of my cards, take care XXX
