New scrapbooking pages!!!

Hi everyone!!!
Lately I've been doing a lot of scrapbooking. And that is something that I haven't done in quite some time. There's been well over a year since I made a scrapbooking page last time so this is BIG, for me at least :)
I've made totally of 15 single pages and 14 of them are double pages.
I have now completed one of my New Year's resolution, to scrapbook our trip to Dyreparken - Kristiansand, Norway in July 2007!!! Hoooray for me!!! :D
I used Bazzill and the designerpaper is from Cosmo Cricket - Wanted.
I'll show you two double pages in each post, so I can add pictures of each page as well.
Soooo... Here they are:

Magnolia's Tilda thinking: Friday Sketchers and Just Magnolia challenges

Hi, for the third time tonight!!!
Here is my 3rd card made after Janneke's sketch over at Friday Sketchers

The base is Bazzill and the designer paper is from Doodlebug??? I'm not quite sure, but I think so... The flowers are from Prima, the roses were a gift from Lene in Sweden. I made them more orange in color and added some Stickles to them. Tilda is stamped with Staz-on ink (black) and cut out with Nestabilities, Labels One. The edges are distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink and then I added some Stickles to the edges as well.
The pearls I used to soften the corners are from Kuttut.

The brads are from American Crafts and the ribbon was a gift from Hanna Kj, an Icelandic scrapper.

This card qualifies for following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - Janneke's sketch
Just Magnolia - Favorite Color Combo

Well, that's all for tonight.
But stay tuned because I'll post some LO's soon. I've done like 15 of them that I´ll share with you soon.
Hugs to your part of the world from my little village in Norway.

Magnolia's Loving Bridal Couple: Friday Sketches and Just Magnolia challenges

Hi everyone!!!
Well, after some days of cardmaking, trying to take pictures of the cards and then transferring them to the computer - they're FINALLY here!!!
I've actually made 3 cards, using the same sketch so there will be 3 posts with 3 different cards.
This is the first one: Magnolia's Loving Bridal Couple.

The picture is not so good but it is taken in daylight and I tried to brighten it a little bit.
The base is a white Bazzill and the designer paper (the red one) is from BoBunny - Holiday Magic Wish. It's actually a Christmas paper but I think it fits perfectly to weddingcards, don't you think??? The white designer paper is from somewhere... I don't have the name, sorry. I used pearls to soften the corners and a string of pearls along with the flowers, both are bought at The image was stamped with Staz-on ink and colored with water pencils. I also added some Stickles to the dress, the flowers and around the image which was cut with Nestabilities, Labels One.
The big flower is from Magnolia and the small ones are from an Icelandic store Skrapp og gaman

The ribbon was from Skrappa, an Icelandic store that doesn't exist anymore :/

This card qualifies for:
Friday Sketches challenge - This sketch
Just Magnolia - Favorite Color Combo

My creative resolutions for 2011

Last night I couldn't sleep so I decided to sit down and write some resolutions for the year 2011.
Now, this is something that I normally DON'T do, but this time I felt like doing so... Don't ask me why, 'cos I don't know yet.
And I even made two different resolutions;
1. A list of resolutions regarding myself personally and regarding my family as well.
2. A list of creative resolutions which was inspired by Anna Sigga, a super talented Icelandic scrap-booker, but she has also made a creative resolution list for 2011. I found the idea so good and inspiring that I decided to make my own list! :D

My list however is divided in two; Knitting and Scrap-booking, since these are my two biggest hobbies at the moment.

Here is my creative resolutions for 2011, scrap-booking:

1. Finish my daughters album to the date.
2. Make my wedding album (we got married i 2006 and I have all the papers so this should be quite simple).
3. Scrapbook more about my hubby, Vidar.
4. Scrapbook our trip to Dyreparken (a trip we did in 2007!!!).
4. Make more cards and try out new techniques in card-making.
5. Use my stamps more both on cards and scrap-booking pages. I have a lot of them but I'm not so good in using them.
6. Try out Copics.
7. Try out different techniques in making flowers and altering flowers.

Well, this is my list.
And I'm planning on sticking to it!!!

Happy New Year 2011!!!

Hi everyone and a happy new year to you all!!!
I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year's Eve :)

I've celebrated Christmas and New Year's Eve here in Norway, with my family and we've had a relaxing and cozy Christmas. No stress and it has been so wonderful!!!
Here is a picture of my daughter, Astros Erla and our dog, Lorry. It's been Photoshoped but the actual picture was taken here i the hallway :)

I have to admit that I wished I'd been better in making cards and doing some scrapbooking last year but I'm determined to do better now!!!
I participated in a "secret santa" game we had at my icelandic scrapbooking site and my secret santa sent me a beautiful gift for Christmas. I got 3 cardstocks from Fancy Pants, 1 Christmas transparancy from Fancy Pants, Prima bling with Fimo flowers on and a bag of Magnolia flowers!
I just love it all and I have to do some scrapbooking, using all this stuff soon :)
