Born and raised in Iceland but moved with my family to Mandal, Norway in January 2010.
Love all kinds of crafts and I don’t care what kind of craft it is: sewing, knitting, crochet, cross stich, scrapbooking, One Stroke… I love everything equally.
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:
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.
Hi again!!! Here comes the second card made after the same sketch made by Janneke.
The base is a cream colored Bazzill and the designer paper is from somewhere, I don't know the name - sorry. The Bridal Couple is stamped with Staz-on ink (black) and colored with water pencils and then I added some Stickles to the lace on her dress, the bouquet, the flowers and around the edges, which I also distressed with Tim Holts Walnut stain distress ink.
The flowers are from Prima and Skrapp og gaman, the pearls in the corners and the string of pearls that I use along with the flowers are both from Kuttut.
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 Kuttut.com 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 :/
