Christmas is coming over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! I am here again and this time I present a new card for the Paper Shelter challenges. Our theme this week is Christmas is coming so it should not be that hard to play along. As always I am a bit late with my card. But this week was really special as I spent yesterday at the hospital with my youngest. He smashed his right foot in a gymnastics gear in school and had to be driven home by a class mates mum that help us out. She is the best! We saw a doctor and did some x-rays. Luckly it's only a bad, really bad bruise and spraining. He will be fine but it will take a few weeks before it's healed. Myself = tired! And today do I have tons of catalogues to make price lists for at work today, and yes they all has to be finished today. Let's say that my boss really knows the art of living here and now. Not so good all the times.


Ok, for my card. I have used the fabby image Dear Santa and I have once again used the pre coloured image. I had to make a really fast card as the time ran out, again. I used some fabby designer papers from Echo Park from the pad called Home for Christmas. I have used some enamel dots, star shaped as I thought it was a nice addition. I also tried to use a dp that had some mail boxes on it, but I think that only one is showing. Thought that would be nice together with Santa reading his letters.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

So for now, take good care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Let´s celebrate over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! With darkeness and mist going from morning to night at the moment it's pretty nice to sit inside and create. Well some creating, some trying to fix my scrap room again. It's shrinking and fast. I have pulled out a stack of designer papers about 50 cm high or so that I will give away to a school or something just so I can get a little more space. Did it help? Nope but I feel so much lighter. I will go throw a bit more of my stuff and let go of it. I probably have a bunch of 6 x 6 paper pads that I don't use either then someone can put them to use.

Well, I managed to get a card done for the Passion for Promarkers challenge in all this mess as well and it's so good to have it done as well. I have used one of my favourite digis from last year from Sassy Cherryl and coloured him up with my promarkers and tria markers. It's something you have to do to be able to win our prize of the week.


I then took a look in my scrapbox of Magnolia papers and they are many that's for sure and never ever used those either. But some day I will and today I used a few scraps at least now is only the rest of the stack left. I paired them up with some pomegranate cardstock from Bazzill, fave brand for that. Then out came my big shot and a whole bunch of letters and stamping for the sentiment on the card. Maybe I should have gone with happy Christmas or something but a snow man needs the snow.

Our theme this week is Let's celebrate so maybe I should have changed it but I use my imagination and believe that the snowy celebrates that it is snowing.

Our sponsor this week is Time for tea designs which offers 3 digi images for one lucky winner! Thank you for that! Do take a look in the store. I am pretty sure you will find something that you like.

Now time to have a look and see if there is something more I can get rid of without feeling bad, but that will be when I get back from work and have done some more creating.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Winter fun over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! I am back again with a new creation for the Paper Shelter. I can't believe that it already has been two weeks since I had a challenge here. Time goes so fast and we already have November, well at least we have tomorrow. ;)

Our theme over at the Shelter is "Winter fun". I thought that we need so fun to do during the dark month before Christmas. It also gives a chance to get a Christmas card or two done before we need to send them all on the way to near and dear.


I have used the image called "Snowball fight". I have used the pre coloured image as I have tons to do at work again. I kind of messed up at work the other day and deleted some stuff that I shouldn't have. Hopefully it's possible to restore the whole thing.

I have used an old paper pad from Panduro which I don't know what it was called. I have actually managed to finished the whole big pad off even if I still have a few back grounds for a few more cards to use. At least I have finished I have used them. I have decorated my card with tons of die cuts that I took the time to make today. I have used a few Magnolia dies like the snow man, the trees, the fence and the snow flakes are from Lawn Fawn. Tons of silver glitter paper for the snow flakes and spica pen is used on the snow man.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

I wish you all the best and hope that you take some time to do something that makes you happy!

Anything goes or Embossing (wet or dry) over at Creatalicious Challenges

Morning and hello! It’s time to show a creation of mine again. I have two posts coming up today, thought it would be a good idea to start with the first one. Sometimes I am brilliant… 😉 We have a challenge going live for you today over at Creatalicious Challenges and our theme is set to “Anything goes or embossing (wet or dry)”. Anything goes you all fix nice and easy but do challenge yourself and do a little more with your creation. It’s always nice to be a little more than you think you can handle.

Prize  -  $10 voucher

We are sponsored by the lovely Little Blue Button and one lucky winner will receive a gift voucher worth $10 to use in the store. You have plenty to choose from so you won’t be disappointed.

So, to my card for this challenge. I have used the lovely image called “ Miss Lilly Princess” and coloured the image with my Letraset Winsor & Newton markers. My go to even if I have been cheating a bit behind the scene lately and coloured way with my distress inks. I hardly ever colour any other images than Magnolias with distress inks for some reason and I am still not happy about the result. I will work on that for a little longer. I have two new Magnolias for Halloween, but I think they could go all the year around as they have an owl and a cat together with Tilda. Maybe I even get a card together with one of the coloured images.


As I wrote on my post on Monday I have been busy changing some stuff in my craft room as I miss out on workspace. My desks are very narrow, and I need more space to be able both to scrapbook and to make cards at the same time. Well maybe not at the same time but without having to move everything around the whole time. What it has led to is that I sit in bed and scrapbook and do my cards here in the craft room as I can’t colour without strong lights now. The meds are eating some of my eyesight for the time being. Hopefully it will pass, otherwise it will be a hard life. 

Anyway, I found when I was reorganizing my 6 x 6 paper packs/pads my old lovely BildmĂ„larna design papers. They are so pretty that I had to use some of them for this card as well. I think it’s from the Spring or summer collection they had last year being in business. I miss them, I adored both paper and stamps and all the fabby charms they offered. Still have a few unused, both stamps and charms. So more of that coming up. I think I will try to make a real effort to use all my stamps at least once the coming year. That is from those which has not been used yet. I don’t want to think about how many they are, so I won’t do that. 😊

I decided to use some of my flower stash as well as a golden heart charm to decorate the card. Two die cut hearts have I also used. I love these tiny little die-cutting sets that costs almost nothing. Most of the time they are very useful, especially when it’s shaped like hearts, stars or stuff like that. I did also use some card candi as I have two million of those as well I think. But I still love those as a replacement to when I need bigger pearls which I don’t have that many off.

Ok then people! Have a good day and do plenty of what you love! Craft away and don’t forget to link it up to our challenge at Creatalicious.

Love n hugs
Marie

Christmas or Winter over at Passion for Promarkers


Morning and hello! It’s Tuesday again and we have a new fun challenge for you over at Passion for Promarkers. Hosting this week is, well I am. I have picked the theme of Winter or Christmas, so it leaves you some more options. Me who really is a winter person loves the snow and all that comes with it, except that I must take the bus to work instead of taking my bike. It takes so much longer to go by buss. Even if I only have about 4 kms, it takes about 45 minutes to get to work by bus. I must walk a lot and get tons more pain. So maybe I don’t like winter as much anymore. 😊But Christmas is still nice.

So, I have dug out one of my Snowy Magnolias just as I do every year. To me the snowmen images is still the best ones they have done there. He or she, hard to tell right? Is coloured with my Promarkers and Triamarkers even if I am running very low on those pens by now. You know, to have a chance on the prize for this week’s challenge you must use the Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers some kind of version. Easy peasy, right? Of course, you must follow the theme as well.

Ingen automatisk text tillgänglig.

Sponsoring this challenge is UNIKO STAMPS and they offer one lucky winner a stamp set that is in stock. 


I dug some more in my stash today and found a new place for all my paper pads. Well, I have been working on that project since the beginning of September or so but now I’ slowly getting there. I have a small craft room and I need workspace so now are all my paper pads going down under my desks. In lovely wooden apple boxes from IKEA. I have two sizes of them and the small ones fits the 6 x 6 paper pads good and under I can store stuff that I don’t use that often. Perfect! I have for example put all my diamond paintings in one of them. Later, I will hit the shelfs in my closets as well to free up some space. Never ending mission but I am pretty sure that the room is shrinking!

Back to my card, as I said I dug around in my paper pads and found yet another favourite of mine. My BildmÄlarna papers, this one is called Winter Wishes. They went out of business some years ago and I really loved what they had going, both the stamps, paper pads and my beloved charms. Miss you tons! I kind of miss Hanglar Stanglar as well, but I saw in a scrapbook store that they are back Hanglar & xxx something. Looked nice.

I used up some of my pre-cut snowflakes and a Christmas tree decoration as well. Thought it would be nice to get some stuff out of my stash. Can’t believe that it never gets empty here, it should. I am not crafting that little. 😊I have used some lovely lace and some golden string as well to make a little more stuff go on at my card. Have also used a few different Spica pens to add some glitter to the card. Christmas needs some sparkle, am I right or am I right?

Ok then happy people! Take good care and do something that makes you happy! Like play along with us over at Passion for Promarkers

Colour it! over at Winter Wonderland

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge over at the Winter Wonderland again. I am the host of the week and also the sponsor for this event. I have set the theme to COLOUR IT! That means that we want to see images that you have coloured for this challenge. So no precoloured or lovely scenery built with die cuts. You are the maker of this card. So digg out all those markers or what you use to colour your image with.

I have fond a really old image that I had laying around for a really long time but for now can I not remember what the artist is named. But I used them a lot when they very new, and I still love them. I have coloured it with prisma pencils this time. A really unusally exprience with me. It was fun, but hard. That's the truth. 



I found a bunch of paper pads that I have hardly used but now I cant remember what they are called. Probabably from Studio Light. I picked some in green, blue and browninsh /kraftcoloured paper. I love the settle colours this bring to the card. Then I rocked on with some gold hearts to decorate with and golden sentiment as well. To top it off did I add a few brown heart as well. A little more balance was fond by that. 

Anyway, I hope that you want to come and join us for this callenge. It's two weeks long and you have to link up your card to the challenge. It shold be nice and easy, just find something to colour with Christmas motives. Make some Christmas cards or something eles that has Christmas in mind. 

Love n hugs

Digital image over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello, or maybe not morning, but hello! :) I'm a bit late with my post for the Paper Shelter this week. I'm stuggling a bit with my meds and have terrible headaches and feel like I'm having the tummy flu with all the time. Today however have I been off work and can finally write the post.

I have used the fabby image called My adorable Little Witch. I don't celebrate halloween but I love the colours of fall and that's why I try to make at least one halloween card each year. I coloured with my Letraset / Winsor and Newton markers. The paper pad is an old one that I don't have the front left and have no clue from where it is. I think I have mixed in a paper from Bo Bunny. But the rest is from another company. Strange, I try to finish of my paper pads and then pads with papers I use once or twice per year they are almost gone. Hmm...


I have used a few dies from Magnolia, Sweden. I love the spider cob, it's stunning and then I found some gold tread and added that to the mix as well. Some golden pearls in the hat and a spider charm to top it off. I hope you like the creation and can find some inspiration from it and maybe make a card for our challenge over at the Paper Shelter. The theme of the week is DIGITAL IMAGE. So it should be easy to make a card for this one.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

I wish you a great weekend and hope to see you play along with us over at the Paper Shelter.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Bingo over at Passion For Promarkers

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week we have a really fun challenge for you. We are playing BINGO! And let's say that Lisa has made a great bingo board where even I won, as I forgot to check it before I finished my card. Printer died on me, off to buy a new one, refused to print as I wanted, got it to work, forgot about the bingo board, checked it after finising the card, took a big breath and here I am with sponsor image and everything. And got BINGO! Yay! LoL

This is the fabby bingo board that Lisa made for us. Nice and easy and you should be able to check most of it off if you check it before you start. LoL

Ingen automatisk text tillgänglig.
Since I am still on a mission to great cards for male I got this fabby image from Dr Digi's house of stamps called Happy Hour Horace. A fabby fun image that I tried to place at the sports bar. I found some designer papers from Prima called All Star Collection which I for some reason also had bought a pack of tags and tickets for. Happy for that today and that I remembered to use them. 


I made some creative cutting here and there and got the papers to last a bit more than they may be should have, and I am wondering why I did it as I have plenty of all the stuff like papers and everything. Oh well if feels good to be in a none waste mood. I wanted to come up with some brilliant sentiment for this one, but today it didn't work, but a little fun at least considering the umbrella placed in the bear.

Our sponsor this week is Dr Digis House of Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner two digi images from their store. That is if you use Promarkers from Winsor & Newton former known as Letraset. 

Ok then, I will be back tomorrow with a new creation for the Paper Shelter. Hope to see you then as well. Maybe you even want to combine or challenges. But for now you can play along with us over at Passion for Promarkers. 

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Time to celebrate over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! I am back for the second time this week. Keeping really busy here. LoL This time I am here with my project for the Paper Shelter and our new theme for the week. I have set the theme to "Time to Celebrate!" Hopefully you fill find some time and join our fun challenge. It's nice and easy. You can celebrate Christmas, halloween, birthdays or what ever you have coming up. It is all about the celebration.

I am not the biggest fan of unicorns but they are starting to grow on me actually. The Paper Shelter keeps coming up with new fun, charming images of them and for my card have I used the newest one. It's called Unicornmania and if you like it, just click the link and you get straight to the image.


I have coloured the fabby image with my Promarkers and some glitter pen, and fussy cut the whole thing out. Glad I didn't mess that up too much as the on/off button of my printer broke today so now I am without printer until that is fixed. I miss my printer already and all of the sudden feel the urge to print tons of stuff. :(

I used a paper pack that I found reorganizing my stash the other week. I think it's connected to Forever Friends, the little brown bear if you all remember? Lovely darker and lighter pastel coloured papers. And as I have a niece turning four later this week, I thought it was a good match with unicorns and kind of girly papers. To add extra girl to the design did I use hot pink sentiment strips saying Hip Hip Hurray in Swedish, some die cuts hearts from Lawn Fawn. To top it all of did I add a gold glittery thicker number from american crafts. A note book punch have I also used. Bought it because I loved the look on layouts but have not gotten to use it for that yet. First time today! Better late than never.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

Ok then, time for me to sign off for today. I wish you a great week and hope to see you over at the Paper Shelter. And we have a few spots open on our design team if you are interested. Do contact me and I have a look at your fabby creations.

Take care and do something that make you happy!

Christmas is coming over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! It's Tuesday again and time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. This time are we going to make Christmas Cards. Nice isn't it? For me it's a pure joy as that is my favorite kind of project to make. So our theme this week is set to Christmas is coming. The only thing you have to do to take part in our challenge is to make a christmas card and colour with your Promarkers. Then you also have a shot at our prize. Winner picked by Mr Random himself!

Bilden kan innehålla: text

Our sponsor this week is the lovely Di's Digi Stamps. They offer a prize of $12 voucher for one lucky winner. That is someone who has coloured with their promarker or their cousins from Letraset.

For my card this week have I used a Magnolia image that I had stamped up ages ago and coloured it up from time to time when I had a minute or two left over. I do also have a stash of pre made back¨+' grounds that I made during the summer as I had trouble sleeping so sat in bed and made cards without any images. It work out pretty well. I finished the paper pad from Panduro. It is all in turquise and lilac, so not my favorite colours but I wanted to finish it off.


Anyway it was good to have it when I made this card as I have tons of homework at the moment. Well, my kids have and for some reason they don't think they can do their home work if someone isn't listening to them. The whole evening is gone by the time we're done. My partner is working tons at the moment so two more weeks do I help to kids and I am pretty messed up by it. I am suddenly learning German again, it was only 30 years ago. LoL

My card, sorry got a bit side tracked again. I added some cotton lace and a few pearls as decorations. And then I added the most adorable snowman from Magnolia. He is so cute! The most wonderful die I have bought in a long time. The sentiment die was a freebee from a Paper crafting magazine. It's still a bit big but it's growing on me.

Anyway, I now hope that you will come along a play with us. You know it's only some weeks left before December is here again and then you will be happy that you started on your Christmas cards today. Just remember to colour with your promarkers or Aquamarkers.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Anything goes optional texture over at Creatalicious Challenges

Morning and hello! It is time for a new challenge over Creatalicious Challenges today. We always have the theme of Anything goes and an optional theme. This time our optional theme is texture. We are sponsored by and the prize offered this time is Mari Digis.


Prize  -  1 of the 3 images the DT used on their projects


I have used the image called  c18 super girl versao md and used a bunch of left over papers from my stash once again. I have started to get good at that lately. Well, to be honest I have used tons of left overs the whole year and I don't have much of them left by now. Now it's all "new and fresh" again. That in the meaning of old papers and paper pads that has hardly been used. LoL

I have coloured with my Letraset / Winsor and Newton markers and some pencils to that for my card this time. I have also dived into my stash of die cuts and used them. The stars are actually new but made out of scrap card stock. Have been sorting that out too. I have also use a border punch, some ribbons from my stash and a few enamle dots. The glitter circle that shows up on two places is a circular frame I cut in two. So there is some glitter card, card stock, ribbon and some graphic paper under the image for different textures on this card. I didn't have the energy to pull out my die cutting mashine and do some embossing which was my first thought when I saw that we had texture as our optional theme. That doesn't mean that you can't do it. Or use some ribbon, lace, twine, fabric etc.

Anyway, I wish you a good day and hope that you will come and join us for our challenge this period of time. Do what you makes you happy and come and play with us over at Creatalicious Challenges.

Anything Christmas over at the Winter Wonderland

Good afternoon! A bit late today as I have had a real struggle with my pain this week, but at least I got there finally with my card for today. We have a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland for you today. It is an easy peasy one as we have Anthing goes Christmas this two week period. Plenty of time to join us for our challenge.

Sponsor for this challenge is Le Ann's World 101 and here is so info about the sponsor and the prize for this challenge.




Hello all, my name is LeAnn Wariner. I have been painting and drawing since I was a little girl. I am a nurse by profession but, like many of you, am unable to work due to medical conditions. I began drawing again a couple years ago and now bring to you my digital "Stamps by LeAnn's World 101". I look forward to seeing your colorings and creations. Thank you from my world to yours. 
And the prize on offer for the challenge winner is  2 digital stamps from LeAnn's World 101 Etsy store.
I have been using the image called  Decorating LeAnn and coloured it with my promarkers and the left overs of my Trias, I miss them and want them back. Ok, back to my card. The image is a lovely image that is working on her christmas decorations. One of my favourite things to do for Christmas. But it has become a little too much when it comes to my decorations. So a bit fewer this year, if I manage to keep that promise. 


I have used some left over papers that has been in my stash for a long time, not a full year but nearly I think. I know they are from NitWit as I love their style of papers but I don't remember the name of them. I have also used a few dies that I got buying a magazine. Amazed by the sentiment die. Looks really lovely, just a tiny bit big for my taste. I need to make bigger cards. The bulbs dies are also from that magazine. I also used a bit a left over lace and a few enamle dots in pink. There is also a tiny bit of flower soft on the girls stocking. I have a tiny bit left over of that fabby product. 

Well, so a pink and grey christmas card from me today. How will yours look? Because you will come and play with us over at Winter Wonderland, right? :)

Take care and do something that makes you happy everyday!

Love n hugs
Marie

Just for fun

Morning and hello! I am back again with another male card. I have quite many left to show I am affraid. LoL! I promise that I will take them one at time and with some other cards in between.  Just so I can enjoy to post more cards than just DT-cards even if that is great too. 

At this moment am I looking forward to the soccer season to come to an end so we can get our weekends back and don't have to rush from soccer field to soccer field. The season has been really long to be honest. But I also know that in a month or so I will miss it terrible again. 

Ok then to the card. I have used the lovely Maja Design paper pack Called Denim something once again and I have also made this one on the ferry to or from Poland. Gosh! It was a great trip! Got so much done. 
Both the designer papers and the topper is from Maja design. This one is also paired up with some twine in black or maybe navy. I don't remember to be honest and I have been messing with the colours in my photo a bit as I try to figure out how to get a light photo without totally white wash it. No bigger success, but some day will I learn. It will just take some time.

Added to the twine is a fabby charm in the shape of a cowboy hat as I thought it was fitting for this topper. I also added a few wooden stars. They look good to all images and toppers. Perfect embellishment in my mind. As always have I used tons of layers to my card. It looks a bit bare if I not add all of the card stock layers too.

Anyway, I wish you a great weekend and do take time to do something for you!

Sentimental over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! Hope your week is good so far. Only three more days or two before the weekend is here again and I really look forward to that. I am so tired and it's a bit hard to breath. I need to use more of my asthma meds I think.

Anyway, no more health talk today. We go straight to my card for today. I have a card for our new challenge over at The Paper Shelter today. We have a new theme and this week have I set the theme to "Sentimental". It simply means that we want to see a sentiment on your creation. Like Happy Birthday, Good Luck, Well done ect.

I have used one of our newer images called Leaf Blower and it's probably the most adorable image in many years from the Paper Shelter. He or she is totally adorable. For me is it a male unicorn today as I am kind of brain washed by unicorns today as I once again has written one or two texts about unicorns at work. They are everywhere and still unicorns are know to be shy and keeping away from other living creatures. LoL

I have coloured with my Letraset Winsor & Newton markers and some glitter pens on top of that. I have used a mega old paper pad from Basic Grey called Green at heart. It's from 2009 and that means I bought it when I started to scrapbook. It's a busy patterned paper pad but I will get a bit more of the papers used up before I send them on to a school or something like that. There is always someone they will be new to.

I have raided my stash of die cuts as well for this card. I have a fall die kit from Magnolia that I love. It's filled with pumpkins, leafs, and other fall related stuff and I adore the fabby leafs in that kit. I did also used a few hearts and flowers that is die cut earlier as well. I decided to add a few feathers from Lawn Fawn as well as decorations. They are coloured in different colours and they are in different sizes as well. Center of my flowers are some dew drops also from ages ago. Oh, almost forgot that I had added some golden string as well. Maybe I should have added all of these die cuts to a scrapbook layout instead but it was really relaxing to keep adding. A whole pile of leaves. Love that!


So here comes the final information about entering our challenges. Like that you can enter up to three times if you use a TPS image on at least one of your creations. That gives you the chance of winning our gift voucher worth $30. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis or your choice.

I wish you a great week and I hope to see you play along with us for our challenge this week. Remember that you don't have to use one of our images but we will be really happy when you do and you have the chance of winning a whole bunch of our images.

Love n hugs

Anything goes over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! How are you all doing? Hope you're doing fine or at least better than we, me and my youngest. I have such headache and earache. My son is coughing like crazy and fever for the second week in a row. Tomorrow he has to write a test. I think my pain mainly comes from my med combo. Well not the earache but the headache. I have to stand it for a while longer and hopefully it will settle.

Anyway, we have a new challenge for you over at Passion For Promarkers. We have the theme of Anything goes and that should be nice and easy. The only thing that you need to do is to colour with Promarkers or their cousins aquamarkers or the missed tria markers the rest of the Letraset family.

We are sponsored by A Day For Daisies which is offering one lucky winner a gift voucher worth $12. The store is filled with lovely charming images. Really tons to look at and fill up your digi library with. 

I have used the image called Christmas Poinsetta and of course it's coloured with my Promarkers. Since I don't feel that well at the moment have I ended up with a easy and go to design once again. I have used an old paper pad from Panduro in red and browns of diffrent shades. Then some white card stock and it got a bit brighter. I also used a doily that I cut in half and by that streched it a bit. I also used some brown heart shaped pearls which is a perfect match in colours for this card. 



Sorry about the photo. It is a bit redish but I will try to fix that tomorrow. Considering that I have taken the photo indoors in a black room with very little light it's a great photo! LoL Anyway, I sign off here and hope that you will come and join us over at PFP this week. 

Take care and do more of what makes you happy!

Love n hugs,
Marie

Make it bloom over at the Paper Shelter

EDITED: I got really sick during the night to Thursday so no card for me this time. High fever and a really painful earache.

Morning and hello! I am back again with a little post. We have a new challenge up today over at The Paper Shelter and the theme is set to Make it bloom.

Sadly I have not had the time to make my card just yet. We moved a meeting the soccer club so I got my planned card making time made into soccer meeting instead. I will have my card made up later on today, promise!


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

In the meantime you could always jump on over to the Paper Shelter challenge blog and see what the other ladies has been up to. There is some fabby inspiration for you all over at the Shelter.

Anything but a card over at PFP

Morning and hello! I am back and in time this time. At least I hope that my post has gone live when it should. It's the middle of a busy working week, I do only work 4 days per week so Tuesday and Wednesday is Mid week. Meetings and soccer will take up my time this week. I will be glad when the week is over actually. Or at least when it's Thursday evening and I can breath and relax again.

We have a new challenge for you this week over at Passion for Promarkers. And this week it really is a challenge as we want to see anything but a card. And you have to use your Promarkers or related markers to these to colour you image. So here is some thoughts on what you can make: tags, book marks, images on lay outs or like me, I pre prepped for a X-mas gift.


I have had a stash with boxes to alter as I never know when I need them. This is was my last one so it is a bit bigger than the others. I used some mega, super old designer papers from Dove Craft and I actually throw the rest of the in the trash! How could I? Well the patterns was really big and I would never ever use them and I don't think that any other person would either.

It was a lot of cutting but very simple and then some pearl ribbon and some gold string to that and a few metal corners to that. Nothing in the middle as I don't know who will get the box yet. That is yet to be added. To the box I made a tag which I coloured with my Promarkers/Brush markers. Then I could it so I had only partial of the image left over and added a sentiment stamp saying Merry Christmas  in Swedish. When time has come do I plan to add name and text to the back side of the tag.

Hope you will take the time to join our challenge as it is fun to be challenge for real from time to time. You have a whole week filled with crafting joy before our challenge closes for the week.

Love n hugs

Christmas Joy over at Winter Wonderland

Hello, hello, hello from Sweden and a very late post. Had trouble with my internet for a few days, but now it seems to work again. That means I am mega late with my beloved Winter Wonderland post which I am also hosting. It seems to be a week when nothing works out like it should at all, or at least not the way I had planned it.

Ok, things like that is supposed to tell you to slow down right? I have decided to handle it like that and here comes my card finally for my Winter Wonderland challenge. I have set the theme to Christmas Joy and that would simply mean that I want to see something that brings you joy for Christmas. It might be to sing the lovely songs, giving the gifts,  recieving them may be, decorate the tree or stuff like that. For me it's pretty much making the Christmas sweets and thinking about my granny. We always used to make it together and after we played card to three in the mornings. My grand dad was not really a fan of that as he thought he wouldn't get his breakfast in time. He couldn't cook at all. Granny did all of that.

So now when I make the Christmas candy with my partner and sometimes one or two of the kids we try to find a new playing list on spotify or and old CD with music on and that is played for the whole of December. Mostly we go back to the same old stuff as it's tradition.

For my card have I used the lovely Christmas Bird trio. I have used the pre coloured version for this card. I had planned to use the other version of non coloured birdies as well but now I am not sure that I will have the time to play with it as well. We'll see how it goes. 

This card is really simple as I was also getting the kids' cold that they have been struggling with the last few weeks so not much energy left over. I have used an old paper pack from Dove Craft I think and just used a few happy layers on my card. I did even make it A6 format this time. That way I could use up some left overs from other projects. I even tied a bow with some left over ribbon for a simple but cute decoration for the card. I can probably even send the card with a single stamp to one of my long distance pen pals when it's time to hit the post office in time for Christmas.

Anyway, sorry once again to all my teamies over at WW and here for my late post.

Anything goes with option pastels

Morning and hello! It's a dubble post day today so I better get started early. Well not me but my blog posts. This morning am I offering you some inspiration for the Creatalicious Challenges and this time do we have the theme of Anything goes with an opition of using pastel colours on our creations.



We are sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter which is offering a lucky winner one digi of your choice. It has to be one of the non-coloured ones

Started in her spare time as a hobby, the Sasayaki Glitter store has rapidly grown from a handful of images to a specially curated shop full of images perfect for all crafting needs.  Inspiration is drawn from the life of artist and owner Naz Smith including her travels and her number one love, her son. Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps hopes to excite and inspire crafters to create beautiful handmade cards and gifts, and Naz looks forward to many more years of creative endeavours.

I have used my lovely and well loved promarkers / triamarkers from Letraset / Winsor and Newton to colour this little one. I did also use some of the glossy accent stuff as I normally use it for glas and wet stuff. Adds a little extra to the creation.
The designer papers are once again from LOTV / NitWit collection from years ago. I still have some of it left. It's actually from two different pads that goes quite well together: Up and away and Pastel dreams. Some of my favourite dies has also been used. They are from Lawn Fawn and some flower punches has also been put to work here as well as a scallop border punch. A text stamp from BildmÄlarna is use to say congratulations. I used some pearls for the center of the flower and some distress inks around all edges of the dps and image. Kind of cute I think. LoL

So now I hope that you will come and play along with us over at Creatalicious Challenges this time and it couldn't be easier to play along. Either pastels or anything goes.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

A card just for fun...

Morning and hello! I am back again and that is without any reason, well more than I had a great time crafting without any musts a while ago. Well I actually did a bunch of cards on my way to and from Poland, on the ferry. It is a few hours between Poland and Sweden by ferry, around 11 or so and you can get a lot of crafting done during this time. LoL

I had packed a 12 x 12 box with stuff that I could make a bunch of cards from and a paper pack for some scrapbooking lo's but I forgot my photos so a bunch of cards got done at least. Cards that I have been trying to get done for a long time.

Here comes the first of my cards. I have a huge (for me) order of male cards to get done and I never seems to get them done. This trip I got 5 or 6 of them done! Yeah for me! This is the first of them. I have have used Maja Design Denim something something for these cards so they are fairly much the same but not the same how to speak.
I have used toppers from the same paper collection and they are really smashing to work with even if I sometimes find the toppers a bit small for my cards. Many layers of paper and cardstock helps to enlarge them a bit. I love the colours in this paper pack and I love that great look with a mixture of softer patterns like the flowers and then adding the dots, stars or stripes as match to that. Lovely! On this card did I actually use some lace together with a skull charm as I know that the guy who ordered the cards from me will love the different textures that this gives the card.

Anyway, I had tons of fun creating this card when I knew that I had no musts around me and really could focus on sitting on the bed relaxing, cutting my papers and "gluing" away. So relaxing!

Take care and do something that you enjoy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Digital image over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! Yepp! I know! I am back again for the second day in a row. All breaks from everything is over now and school is back and running for the kids and we start to get back to normal routines again and so will my blogging!

Today I am here to inspire you all to join our challenge over at the Paper Shelter. This week we have our theme set to "Digital image" and that is simply as it sounds. You use a digital image and you are good to go. You can colour yourself or use a pre coloured one but it has to be an image. Nice and easy once again.

I have used a new image called A nice tan. I have used the pre coloured version once again as I find it lovely to show case Veronicas lovely digital colouring and it saves me some time as well and that is what I need at this point. I have used some lovely old Basic Grey papers from the pad called "Marjolaine". Tons of blue, teal and green colours, totally smashing. Wonder why I have not used it before. I can only be 7 or 8 years old. LoL

The design is simple once again as we have a big trade show on at work this week and I have spent tons of time working on our home page adding new stuff. So I am a bit sour in my fingers and back. But the truth to be told I am liking the clean designs. I have many layers of paper and card stock and only decorated with some pearls and a sentiment stamp which I have no clue where it's from.


I do hope that you want to come and join us for our challenge. You don't even have to use a TPS image even if we love it when you do. If you are smart enough and use a TPS image and get picked by Mr Random you will win a gift voucher worth $30. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

So do something fun today and come and join our challenge! You have a week to enter it!

Love n hugs
Marie

Happy Birthday over at PFP

Morning and hello! Time for a new fun challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. This weeks theme is nice and easy for you all to take part in. We are doing "Happy Birthday" cards this week. The only thing you have to do to take part in our challenge is to use your Promarkers from Letraset or Winsor & Newton.

I have dug out an old stamp from my stash and colour it with my markers. It matched perfect with my new paper pad from Doodle Bug called "Kitten Smitten". There is really happy colours in this pad, maybe a little too bright but it was fun to use some really bright and happy colours for a while. I have used tons of blending pen on my image to get a softer look on the fur.


As I am working tons this week I had to keep my card really simple and have used my scalloped punch, a heart die from Dovecraft and just a few black pearls. The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan I think. I have a big box filled with sentiment stamps but it's a total mess and I never really know where stuff are from or what I have. A big surprise each time I take out that box.

UnikoLogo

Our generous sponsor this week is Uniko Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 1 stamp set (which must be in stock) from their online store.  Their stamps are gorgeous so why not pop over to the store and check them out. 

Well, take care everyone and do something that makes you happy!
