I'm alive!!!

Just letting you guys know that I'm alive and everyone are well.
I've been rather busy at work and my daughter was finishing kindergarden last friday so there are many changes at this point. She'll be starting in 1. grade this fall so my mothers heart is a littlebit broken :/ She's getting sooooo BIG!!!
And we will also be moving in the end of august / beginning of september and we are so happy because we are gonna have an extra room wich will be hobby room /office / guest room :D
So, finally I'll be able to organize my things, just the way I want to ;o)
Oh, and I just have to tell you... Last friday I ordered a small package from Papirloftet (online Norwegian scrapbooking store) and I just can't wait to get what I ordered and try it out!!!
The package contains 3 Magnolias, 1 set of Nestabilities and 3 different colours of pearl brads that I've had on my wishlist for months!!! I hope to recive it soon so I can start to do something fun with it :D
Well... I'm off to do some cooking for my hubby and daughter.

A weddingcard using Tilda with Love Rice

Hi everyone!!!
Well it's time for some more cards I think ;o)
My friend, Jónína, also asked me to make a weddingcard for her, she is attending a wedding in June and needed a card.
Well, I don't have any weddingstamps so I had a little problem on my hands. I checked out Papirloftet, a Norwegian online Scrapbookingstore, but they didn't have anything that I liked. So... I desided to go with the Magnolia stamp "Tilda with Love Rice" and it really came out quite well, I think!
The papers are from Bazzill and The Paper Company. Flowers are from Prima and the roses are from Papirloftet. I also used the Flower lace punch from Martha Stewart. I don't know where the charm is from, sorry. Tilda is coloured with waterpencils (but Copics are on my wishlist, that's for sure!). I also added Stickles glitter to the roses, Tilda's bow, apron, shoes, hearts in the basket and to the hearts she is throwing in the air.
Here is a close-up of the Stickles glitter, I overdoesed it with glitter!!! Wedding is all about the glitter, right???
Here is a close-up of the roses in the bottom right corner. They got some Stickles glitter as well.
Here we have a close-up of the flower/rose combination, charm and the "weddingday" stamp that has 3D cutions under.
Here we have more of a closup of the flower/rose combination and the charm. The rose has a Stickles glitter. I made a bow to fasten the charm in and glued it on.

Well, that's it for tonight.
Now, I'm just gonna lay back and relax. I've been over my head in the kitchen the last two days baking for my 30th birthday, that's TOMORROW!!!
I feel like I'm turning old... :o/

Graduation card, blog hop and a sketch from Friday Sketchers!!!

Hello everyone!!!
Well, here I am with my newest card :D
This one is made for my oldest and dearest friend of all, Jónína.
Her brother is gratuating soon as a carpenter (not finished with the workpart though, only school) and she asked me to make a card for him.
This card is made with the Friday Skechers sketch 101
That sketch was designed my dear Jacque and of course I had to participate!!!
This is a Magnolia image, Edwin with a balloon, papers are from Bazzill, Shabby princess and DCWV.
I also used my new Nestabilities classic oval circle and classic scalloped circle. I gave myself those two Nestabilities sets as a birthday present because I'm turning 30 on Sunday, May 16th!!! :O

Since the boy is graduating as a carpenter, I wanted to have some screws on the card because I felt it needed a connection to his gratuation. I tried to find a Magnolia Edwin which had a hammer in his hand, but didn't find one... So, this was the best thing I could do. The screws are from Tim Holtz (the small ones) and I think the large ones are from Making Memories.

Here is a close-up of the Nestabilities and Edwin. I desided to follow my favorite cardmakers advise, Jacque, to round the edges of the image a little bit for a dimension. This became so cute!!! I surely recommend it to anyone :D

The layer under the image and the Nestabilities are on 3D cusions for more dimensions.

I hope you liked my card. And I would love a comment or two and some more followers ;o)

Some brand new cards :)

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you all had a great Easter last week, at least I did ;)
Here in southern Norway the weather today was just fantasic but I spent most of the day inside though, since I woke up last night with sore throat, cold, headache and coughing :o/
I did NOT find that amusing :@
Well, I've done some cards since last time and I'm actually kinda proud of them. They turned out really well I think. All the stamps are from Magnolia, the punches (both the butterfly and the borderpunch) are from Martha Stewart (my hubby gave them to me for christmas!!!), the papers are from Bazzill, Fancy Pants, Basic Grey and some others that I can't remember the names of (I know, I'm bad with names).
For the first two cards I used the sketch from last week over at Friday Sketchers #96 but I forgot to put them on the Internet before the due date.

Those 3 cards that are here below are made by Terry over at Sketch Saturday. Here is the link to their blog. I just loved the sketch and I'm pretty sure I'll use it again soon!!! It was just sooo much fun to work with :)
All those cards qualifyes for the Just Magnolia challenge this week, which is "punch it out", so I'll be entering them there as well.
Well, now I have get to the kitchen!!! It's my daugther's 6th birthday tomorrow and I have to decorate the cake!!! Have a nice weekend everyone.

A new card!!!

Hi again!
Yes, when I finally got around to do some cardmaking, I sure managed to do more than just one!!!
This one was supposed to be for a spring-challenge, but I didn't finish it in time... But here goes anyway. It doesn't show, but there is Stickles on the apron and the broom.

BasicGrey Challenges

Well, I did more cards this weekend.
Those two are for the Basic Grey Challenge and the deal was to use this photo as an inspiration for the card. This is what I came up with.
I also used this sketch over at Mojo Monday blog and I find it just perfect for babycards!!!

Here are my cards:

Mother and daughter cardmaking time!!!

Hi everyone!!!
Well, finally I manage to get my ass going and make some cards!!!
Last Saturday me and my little girl (who is turning 6 years in just few weeks!!!) sat down and did some cardmaking!!! We used the sketch over at Midnight Madness Challenge Blog and we had sooo much fun!!! What a great idea to have two different verisons of the same sketch :D
Just perfect for mothers and daughers (or sons) to have some quality time together and do some cardmaking. At least, we had a blast ;o)
Here are our cards...
Ástrós Erla's card:

My card:
I didn't help Ástrós Erla very much. She chose the papers, flowers, ribbon and the image all by herself. She also did all the colouring herself. I only helped her glueing everything together and fixed the image a little bit for her (she asked me to) where her colouring had gone a little bit out of hand ;)

I'm slowly getting there...

Hi everybody!
I'm still alive, even though the snow is almost drowning us here in Norway!!!
It doesn't seem like it going to stop but I hope it will sooner than later. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE snow, but this is getting out of hand I think. The snow in our garden is around 1 meter high at this point and getting higher as it is snowing outside as we speak.
I've been wondering how to organize my scrapbooking supplies and since I didn't have a table to work on, I got this great idea to get our kitchentable out of the garage and use that for the time being. It's now up in my little corner and I'm just trying to organize my stuff so I can start to do something creative again!!! My fingers are itching and they are itching bad so this will be done very soon... I hope.
Few days ago I came across this great blog: CRAFTY STORAGE
Have you guys seen it before???
It's absolutely amazing and what a great overview of many different storage ideas!!!
Well, browsing through that blog I found another fantastic blog, Stacy sure knows how to organize and she just became my rolemodel for organizing!!!

Oh, and before I forget...
Jacque has some wonderful SWEET STUFF give-away again... There is a picture and a link on my sidebar ;)

Hugs for now,

Happy new Year and long time no see!!! Oh, and yes - have you seen Jacque's blogcandy???

Hello everyone!!!
First of all, Happy New Year and I'm sorry that you havn't seen me for awhile now.
There is a reason and pretty good one too... In December I packed all of my stuff and in the beginning of January, I moved with my family to Norway - hopefully to have a better life!!!
Now, I'm trying to organize all of my things, in a new home and all I've done with my scrapbooking stuff is to look at my boxes and unpacking all of my cardstock - that's it!!!
My fingers are itching for some scrapbookingtime but unfortunatly I have a problem, I don't have a table that I can use as a scrapbookingtable, so I have a bit of a dilemma as you can see :o/
But I hope I can do something about that soon...

But have yoy guys seen this fantastic sweet stuff AND the blogcandy that Jacque is giving away???
It's just fantastic!!!
