Baby set- invitation, place card, thank you card


Hi friends, 
We are loving summer in Norway this year, it's so hot we can't hardly believe it!!! So not much crafting on my end I'm afraid. All we can do is hide in the water at the beach to cool down...lol. But I get my copics out every now and then, and do some coloring in the shade, so I will have lots of fun stuff to show you once I get the images on some cards. Until then, here's a set I made a while ago. Invitation,  place card and thank you card. 

Materials used:
Papers: Pion Design
Ribbon: Kort og Godt
Dies: Memorybox (swirl), Spellbinder scalloped circle, Lifestyle craft circle, Sizzix banner die.
Punch: Martha Stewart doily lace and Butterfly boarder punches.
Stamp: Magnolia

Here's the invitation, shaped like an envelope with ribbon to open and close. 
Images are colored using distress inks. The letters are an old QK alphabet called Olivia.

Inside I used an old Fancy Pants journalling stamp. 

 For the place card I simply folded a triangle and decorated the front. 

 ...and here's the thank you card. Pretty Clean and Simple to be me. I added some pearls, but that's it:) 

Hope you like it! 
Thanks for stopping by, 
hope you are enjoying your summer days!

Wedding guest book/ Gjestebok til bryllup

Hi blogging friends. Hope you are doing well!
Here is a wedding book I made for our wedding guests to write a little message or good luck wishes at our wedding  last year. 

Denne boken lagde jeg til bryllupet vårt i fjor, boken ble lagt frem slik at alle gjestene kunne skrive en liten hilsen til bruddeparet. Veldig koselig å ha senere! 

I bought a notebook in vintage style to decorate.  I basically used the same embellishements on this as   I did on the placement cards.
Jeg kjøpte en ferdig notatbok i gammel stil, men den kan enkelt lages ved å binde sammen flere sider med ark, med en pappbit foran og bak. Boken dekkes med strie og svertes med distress ink, du kan gjerne stemple med noen tekststempler. Fest eylets i hullene og tre hyssing eller bånd gjennom og knyt. Lim på pynt. Jeg dekorerte i samme stil som bodrkortene.

Here are the table cards. Tutorial can be found HERE.
Her er bordkortene, jeg har laget en tutoral tidligere, den finner du  HER.

Papers are Maja Design, Sofiero collection, flowers are WOC, Key and clock charm and lace from the LLC store, Birdcage from Dusty Attic. The beutiful wedding sentiment is by Stempelglede. I also used Spellbinder Decorative Labels 28, Lifestyle crafts cirkeldiesg and lace cirle dies,  Memorybox heart die, Melissa Frances – garnish applique corners.
Boken var i Ett Trykk i juni 2014. 

 Here's a coulple of closeups:) Hope you like it!
Håper du liker den, vi har iallefall masse glede av boken. Morsomt å kikke på alle hilsnene vi fikk. Vi har også limt inn bilder, bordkort, kort, hilsner vi fikk til og med noen av talene og andre små minner fra den store dagen.  Ekte scrapbooking med andre ord:) 

Thanks for stopping by today, wishing you a creative day!

DT Copic Marker Europe: Happy birthday

Hello crafty friends,
Here's a card I made for Copic Marker Europe this week. I made a frame-card using a tutorial over at Malins blog.
Her er et kort jeg har laget for Copic Marker Europe. Malen til kortet har jeg funnet hos Malin. Tusen takk! 

I love these beautiful Studio Light papers, perfect for summer cards. I used flowers by WOC and Kort og Godt, A Melissa Frances resin piece corner, Pearls by Panduro, Butterfly stamp by Kreativ Hobby, Wooden bird by Prima, Spellbinder oval circle and scalloped circle and La La Land heart banner die. Sentiment by Norsk Stempelblad AS.

Jeg synes disse arkene fra Studio Light er så nydelige. Ellers har jeg brukt WOC og Kort og Godt blomster, Gipshjørne fra Melissa Frances, perler fra Panduro, Sommerfuglstempel fra Kreativ Hobby, Trefuglen er fra Prima. Diesene er Spellbinders oval circle og  scalloped circle og heart banner die fra La La Land. Tekststemplene er fra Norsk Stempelblad AS.

I use my W7 on the deepest shadows to create contrasts. It goes with lots of colors, so don't be afraid to try even if it scares you, just be sure not to use to much and to blend well with the color you are using! I have used W7 on her hair, shirt and pants, even for the white lace!
Jeg bruker W7 på de mørkeste skyggene for å øke kontrasten. Den passer sammen med mange forskjellige farger, bare man ikke bruker for mye og man blander godt med den fargen du har brukt. Anbefales! 

Copics used:
Skin: E50-21-15, V95 and R20 for the cheeks.
Hair: E29-25-21, W7
Blouse and bow:BV29-25-23-20, W7
Pants: BG75-72-70, W7
Lace: W7-3-00

I used another Magnolia image on the inside of the card.  Swirl stamps by Stempelglede
Jeg har brukt et annet Magnolia stempel inni kortet. Swirl stempler er fra Stempelglede.

 Same thing on this image, I used my W7 on her hair, clothes, even on the flower in her hand. 
Copics used:
Skin: E50-21-15, V95 and R20 for the cheeks.
Hair: E29-25-21, W7

I also used one of the gorgeous new sentiments by Norsk Stempelblad AS on the inside.

Kantpuch frsa Martha Stewart.

Kortet er til salgs i Epla- butikken min HER

GDT Paper Nest dolls: For my little Pop Star

Good Morning peeps, 

So so happy to show you this card!

The very sweet and talented creator of the Paper Nest Dolls Christine Young made this fabulous Pop Star  image for my daughter Sabine! She just turned 8 a few days ago, and her biggest dream (at the moment) is to be a pop star. She keeps singing in front of the mirror, dancing and performing for everyone as often as she can.  She loves to make songs, even though she only remembers them for about a second...lol...she says she can always make more and she is convinced that one day she will be a pop star (and a teacher at the same time....lol). This card was in the June edition of Ett Trykk Magazine.

I asked Sabine what a pop star would ware, and she said tights and a t-shirt with one bear shoulder (!) She loves the Paper Nest Dolls, and this one is for her. 
Thank you Christine, I know she will be over the moon when she sees this and hears it's for her! 

 In Sabine's favorite colors- pink and turquoise.

I used papers from Poppy Design/ Vibeke Spigseth, Lace from stash, Flowers are WOC and Panduro. The sentiment is by Norsk Stempelblad. I used a Martha Stewart punch and spellbinder circle dies. The no. 8 is from a Tim Holtz numbers dies set, covered with glitter.

Copic colors used: 
Skin: E04-11-00-000, 
Hair: E21-25-29
Pink: E89-85-81
Turqoise: BG 75-72-70-11, W3
Black: W7-5-3-1
Michrophone: C5-3-1-00

Hope you like it!
Pop over to the Paper Nest Dolls to see more of the cute little dolls.
