*Another Christmas card...*

Just a quick post this time. Made a simple Christmas card using the lovely paper from Scrappers Choice. Another one designed by the talented Vibeke Spigseth. It doesn't show so good in the pictures, but the paper has a glimmery shine to it. Used this lovely Tilda which just melts my heart, painted her with my distress inks. Used some of the new Mulberry flowers from Papirloftet, my WW punch, string and I don't know what you call the other strawthing in english..but they are both from Panduro. All of the brads and rondells are from Unik Hobby. Pearls are from Kort og Godt. The shapes on the inside is made by Spellbinders Nestabilities. All edges are distressed with Aged Mahogny. The text is on the paper and says "Merry Christmas"

I had to lay the inside down flat to get a decent photo. The upper part is the back of the front. The sentiment says "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year"

Thanks for stopping by, and for taking time to write me those lovely comments!

*My weddinginvitations*

Ok, so here are som pics of my weddinginvitations. I've been asked by many of you to show some pics, so even though I feel a bit insecure about showing them I'll do it to please the crowd;) Don't feel the light shows the colours like they are in real life, but anyway, here they are. I've used Bazzil Pear and White, and the DP is Melissa Frances called "Faith". I thought the name was appropriate:) The ribbon is Harvest sheer Mossy Green and the pearl is from Panduro. The stamp, which says "Invitation", is from Ladybugsandfriends and I've embossed it in silver. All the edges are scraped and distressed with Peeled Paint, and I've sewn on my machine around the patterned paper, and no one looks the same i can assure you lol. I didn't have much time to finish them, and I had to make 32, so they turned out like this...

A little closeup on the pearl

The inside: I've used vellum to print the text, and it has little crystals in it that twinkles. It doesen't show on the picture. The text is printed from my computer and glued to a white bazzill to make it clearer.

On the left side I chose to put a picture of us in black and white. I added some of the paper, scraped and distressed, and put on some cute flowers from Kort og Godt. I've also embossed the "We're getting married" text, which is a stamp from Papirgleder.

On the back I've used some more of the DP and sewn around it, distressed the edges and put on my personal stamp in silver.

So there it was..

*Friday Sketchers # 31

Here is my entry to this weeks challenge at Friday Sketchers. The challenge this time was a fabulous sketch by the oh so talented Claudia Rosa. I love the fact that I now can concentrate fully on making my Christmas cards and just play like I want in my craftroom. I really did enjoy making our weddinginvitations, but after making 32 it's good to use some new colours and papers;) I wanted to go really red this time and I'm totally in love with these wonderful papers! And who can resist this cute little Hanglargirl??
The sentiment on the front says "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year"

For the inside I used the back of the paper and I just love these wonderful swirls:) Made a little pocket on the left and put some bags with instant hot chocolate. Yum!

The sentiment means "Time for joy"

CS: Bazzill
DP: Vibeke Spigseth "Julefryd"
Stamps: Hänglar & Stänglar, Anka Design
Accessories: Pearls, lace and bradframe from Kort og Godt, Bells, ribbon and silverthread from a local store, nestabilities, Martha Stewart punch.
Painted with my distress reinkers and all edges are distressed with aged mahogny

Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog and for leaving me those wonderful comments. You brighten my day!

Sukkersøtt #19, skisse #5

Her er mitt bidrag til utfordring #19 på Sukkersøtt. Denne gang var oppgaven en stilig skisse laget av Hanne. Laget et litt "sukkersøtt" julekort med de to søte turtelduene fra Magnolia. Papirene er bare såå lekre og er fra Scrappers Choice, designet av Vibeke Spigseth. Blomstene er fra den nye serien Mulberry som fåes kjøpt hos Papirloftet. Ordentlig lekre blomster! Bladene er fra Prima og den lille grønne perla i midten er fra Kort og Godt.

Teksten på framsiden som sier "julefryd" er noen søte små rubons fra Doodlebug.

Dette stempelet som sier " Med ønske om en fin og fredelig juletid" er fra KH Design

Tusen takk til alle dere som besøker bloggen min og legger igjen koselige kommentarer!
Ønsker dere alle en flott adventstid!

StampARTic's 1st Challenge

Here is my entry to the grand opening at StampARTic. It was exciting to try out Camillas folding technique, and I tried not to look like a copy cat, eventhough I used the same papers as her. I've been wanting to use this image for quite some time now, she just looks so dreamy to me.
Here is the card folded open. I've used my nestabilities inside to and I've attatched some cute bells with a silverthread. The sentiment says "Juleglede" and means "Christmas Joy". I just had to add those sweet little snowflakes, which are half of a QK die. The pearls are from both Kaisercraft and Kort og Godt. The silverthread is from my stash.

I've covered all the sides, front and back with DP and this is the back. Here is where the closing thread is attatched and I've added my personal stamp
Thanks for watching!
And a heartfelt thanks to all of you who visit my
blog and brighten my day with your lovely comments!

*God Jul*/*Merry Christmas*

Ok, så jeg jukser litt igjen..hehe, klarer ikke la hobbyrommet stå i fred lenger;) Har noen julekort som må lages og det er jo et poeng å smi mens jernet er varmt, er det ikke?? :) Jeg simpelthen elsker disse fargene og Magnolia gjør det til en fryd å lage kort! Elsker den nye Word Window punchen min, tusen takk Lim!!!
Ok, so I keep on cheating..lol, but I just can't keep out of my craftroom any longer;) I do have some Christmas cards to make, so why not take advantage of making them when I have this urge to scrap?? :) I just love these colours and Magnolia makes it such a pleasure to make cards! I simply love my ny Word Window punch, thank you so much Lim!!!
I've put a tag behind the notes which says "A warm Christmas hug to you from me"
Festa på en liten charm på lappen, syns det ble riktig så søtt :)
Added a little charm to the label, think it looks cute :)

The inside:

Måtte lage et lite skilt med de nye nestabilitiesene mine:)
I've made a little sign which says " Christmas Joy", love the new nestabilities;)

The back:

I only have time for a quick post, since I'm not suppose to do this at the moment..lol, but if there's any questions feel free to ask!
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!!
Big hug, Line

*A new card!*

Ok, so I cheated..but I had to! *lol*
I've been working so hard to finish my weddinginvitations and now I have to wait for something to arrive in my mailbox before I can do the finishing touches. I'm beginning to get really excited about a wintery wedding, and things have fallen into place so it looks like we'll get ready in time too :). I've had this itch to make something else so yesterday I painted some of my new Magnolias and here is the first card I've finished. I'm almost out of practise so I struggled to get into the groove again. It turned out real plain and simple but I just love the pearls that sweet, sweet Lim sent me:)

"God Jul" means Merry Christmas

"A warm Christmas hug from me to you"
CS: Bazzill
DP: Papirdesign
Stamps: Magnolia, swirl from Ladybugsandfriends
Accessories: Pearls from Lim, scrappers floss, ribbon unknown, buttons from Kort og Godt, spellbinders nestabilities
Thank you so much to all of you who has visited my blog, even when there's been no new posts:) I really appreciate all of your wonderful comments about my Christmas mailbox. Some of you have asked me about a tutorial for this and I'm sorry to say there is none. I didn't think of taking pictures of the process because I was trying not to light my red hair on fire *lol* It is just a matter of finding the right kind of box and cut a lid in the size you want. Then I opened it up and covered the inside with DP before I put i together again and decorated the outside. I'm sure many of you will be able to make this without all of the not so nice language that I used ;)
And a big thank you to all of you who has been so generous and kind to give an award, I am deeply hounourd and touched that you thought of me. I promise to come back and give them to other deserving crafters:)
I wish you all a wonderful week!
Hugs, Line

*En liten oppdatering*/*Just a little update..

Hei alle sammen!

Først må jeg bare si tusen takk til Åshild for at hun plukket ut julepostboksen min blant ukens søtesteSukkersøtt! Snakk om opptur da! :D

For det andre så må jeg bare beklage at det ikke har kommet noe nytt i bloggen her på en stundt, og det vil nok dessverre ikke komme noe her på en stund heller.. Min kjære og jeg har nå måttet framskynde bryllupet vårt pga en del ting som har skjedd i og rundt famillien i det siste, både gode og dårlige nyheter. Den nye datoen vår er nå satt til 17. januar så nå har jeg mer enn nok å henge fingrene i. Holder på med invitasjonene nå og skal produsere det jeg kan til jeg er i mål med alt som skal lages. Skulle så ønske jeg hadde tid - og energi til å scrappe noe annet, men det ser dårlig ut foreløpig.. Jeg prøver å snike meg til noen bloggrunder innimellom for å følge litt med, men er redd jeg ikke får kommentert så mye som jeg ønsker. Skal poste nytt innlegg så fort jeg har noe å poste;) Savner dere alle sammen masse!!

Hi everyone!
First of all I just have to say a big thank you to Åshild who picked out my Christmas mailbox as one of this weeks sweetest at Sukkersøtt! Talk about getting high! :D

Second of all I have to say I'm sorry for the lack of new postings in my blog lately, and it probably will be some time before anything new appears too.. My fiancè and I decided last weekend to move our wedding to January 17th instead of in May. There's been a lot of stuff happening in and around our family lately, both good and bad, so we decided it was best to move it. With that said my list over things to do in very short time grew fast, and my hands are fully occupied with the wedding. I have to make the invitations now and when that is done I have the seatingcards etc. etc... I really wish I had the time - and energy to make anything else but I'm afraid it just have to wait. I try to sneak in some bloghopping now and then,but I'm not able to comment as much as I'd like. I promise I'll make a new posting as soon as there's something to post;) I miss you guys so much!!

One last thing, I've been tagged by Gry-Heidi and I'm sorry that I haven't done it yet. I also have received two awards from Malin, thank you so much! I'll try to pass them on as soon as I can;)

Take care!
BIG hug,

Da har jeg endelig funnet tid til å være med i en ny utfordring på Sukkersøtt, og i denne som er nr 14 i rekken skulle man ha med tekstil i arbeidet sitt. Jeg valgte å lage noe annet enn et kort denne gangen, nemlig en boks til å oppbevare julekort i. Har igrunn hatt bruk for det i noen år så var igrunn greit å få den på plass nå...hehe. Det synes ikke på bildet, men jeg har limt på mønsterpapir på hele innsiden av boksen og. I tilfelle det er tvil om bruk av tekstil her, så har jeg altså kledd kanten i åpningen og på lokket med blonde. Det var mye mer vrient enn jeg trodde det skulle være å lage denne, så det har nok knitra litt ekstra i det røde håret mitt idag!! ;)

I've finally found the time to enter a new challenge at Sukkersøtt, and this time you were suppose to use fabrics on your work. I decided to make a box for my Christmas cards and the fabrics used are the lace around the opening of the box. I have also put DP on the whole inside of the box as well, it just doesen't show on the pictures. It was a bit more difficult to make this than I had anticipated, so it kind of got a little hot on top of my redhaired head while I struggled...lol.

The word "Julepost" means "Christmaspost"

I've used a box that used to contain a kitchentool..
DP: Paperstack from Panduro, the label is from Minner(Memories) by Vibeke Spigseth
Accessories: letters from MM, flower from Prima, leatherbutton, string and straw from Panduro, stickles from Ranger, snowflakes and keys from Unik Hobby, keyhole from Maya Road and lace from Kort og Godt.
Takk for at du besøker bloggen min, og tusen takk til dere som legger igjen så hyggelige kommentarer. Det varmer virkelig!!
Ønsker dere en flott uke!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for leaving me those wonderful comments!
Have a wonderful week!

*Vennskap er en gave*/*Frienship is a gift*

Her er mitt "i siste lita" bidrag til Friday Sketchers Sketch # 25 av Claudia Rosa. Jeg har vært veldig opptatt i det siste og har rett og slett ikke hatt mulighet før nå. Dette er et skikkelig høstkort, og du kan gjerne kalle det en stille protest mot snøen som kom ned i går! ;)
Jeg simpelthen digger disse dramatiske og fargerike papirene og jeg er totalt forelska i dette stempelet fra Magnolia! Hun er bare SÅ søt!

Here is my last minute entry to Friday Sketchers Sketch # 25 by Claudia Rosa. I've been really busy lately so I didn't have time to make it sooner. It is an autumn card, and I made it as a silent protest against the snow that came down yesterday! ;)
I just love these dramatic and colourful papers and I just love this Tilda. She is just the cutest!

The sentiment on the front means; Friendship is a gift (you can see it much better in real life..)

The sentiment means; Warm hugs

CS: Bazzill
DP: Basic Grey Ambrosia collection
Stamp: Magnolia, Norsk Stempelblad
Accessories: Pearls from Kort og Godt, Brads, charms and rondells from Unik Hobby, Flowers from Prima, String from Panduro, Ribbons unknown, Rubon from Melissa Frances, Stickles from Ranger.
Your visits and comments brings joy to my life.
A BIG thanks to you!
