Memories for Julia

Happy Thursday to you all!

My sister Louise have been asking me for a very long time to make some memory boxes for her daughter Julia. We'll - I did not have any more excuses when I saw these supercute DPs from Making Memories. I had to have them and made 3 little boxes for Julia - to save her keepsakes in.
I made a matching card - featuring Young Cathrine with friends. Coloured Cathrine and the little chickens with my copics.
Added a Doodlebug ribbon and sentiment "Memories" from SU.

I hope that Julia and her Mom will like it ;-)

Also - hope you have not missed the new Spellbinders 2010 , Tsukineko Psst Spritz and new cute images from Pink Cat Studios!!

Welcome to another TIOT! This week Suzanne wanted us to show the versatily of holiday stamps. Well - many of you might have thought that this cute little girl - Irish Eyes - only would be perfect for St Patrick's Day? Hm..nope..... I think she's so supercute that she would be perfect on any card.

I used her for a b'day card to my niece Victoria and she loved it!
I decided to make the layout similar to her top - hence the flower eylets and the scrappers floss as the ribbon. Made a cute little pin to got with the card. ´
Colouring: Copics
DPs: My Minds Eye
Embellies: Pearls, Mini-roses
Sentiment - Rub-on sent to me from my sweet friend Tammi
Kram and hope you like her as much as I do :-)

Happy B'day Dad!

It's my wonderful Dad's b'day today! So Happy B'day Dad! Hope we get to see you, but I guess it depends if they manage to clear the roads...

It's also time for another RoP/BnW challenge. This time I got the honor to be the hostess and I challenged the team to make a card for a boy/men.

I decided to ink up and colour "Surprise". Coloured him with my copics.

DPs from Making Memories that was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft. Sentiment from Aud Design. Hope you like it and make sure that you check the rest of the DT creations.

Card for Daan

Happy Sunday ladies!

Here's todays report from Sweden. We are def. snowed in. It was been a total chaos in Sweden yesterday and not all roads are cleared yet. There's 1meter of snow on our long driveway - so there's no chance that I will be able to get out.

I will have to wait and hope that my Dad can come with his tractor tomorrow and help us. He was on his way today - but they had not cleared the road that takes him to us - so he has to wait....

Well - that's the snowreport for today. Now over to the card - if you remember - my blog friend Renata was asking her blogfriends to create a card for little Daan. Daan is 4 years old and has a brain tumor - which is sadly incurable. This is what Isac and I came up with - using the image "Isac the soccerplayer".
Isac wanted Daan to be in the Dutch soccerteam - so therefore he got the Dutch colours on his outfit. I hope he will like it.

My thoughts and prayers are going to Daan and his family.

Go shopping?

Hej girls!

It's time for another Try it out Tuesday and this week Suzanne wants us to only use 3 layers on our cards. Well - that was easy for one's - since I stamped and coloured the supercute and cool Fashionista. I coloured her with my copics. Added a few pearls and then of course the wonderful Prima roses. Can't have enough of them and luckily - Susana have a lot of new Prima flowers, jewelry and swirls in her store.

She also have a lot of other new items that you want to check out - so I'm sure you will go shopping. Also - the reason why I know that you will be shopping after this week - is the upcoming release with the new cuties from Elisabeth Bell! I love them already and I can't wait to show them to you - starting our blog hop - Feb 19th!

I decided however - that Fashionista - already did some shopping - waiting for the cuties to arrive and she got herself a corset ;-). Well - this is actually a corset bag that I made in the matching DPs. I purchased the tutorial here.

It's Valentine's Day

And I hope you all are having a great day with your loved ones!
Here's a little set that I made for a loved one - my cute little niece Julia!
She's 1 year and 2 months ;-)
I stamped and coloured little "Smile". Made a "mini-card" with the same DPs as I created the little babyshoes with.
The babyshoe template is one that I found here. I think they are so stinking cute - don't you? I loved making them so I warn you - you will see more babyshoes in my blog ;-). I added two mini-roses on the sides - as you can see.

TIOT - Valentine Challenge

Hej ladies!

It's time for another challenge - and as we all know - Valentine's Day is getting closer.
Suzanne challenged us to use the colours Pink, Red and Purple.

I inked up cute little Daisy and coloured her with my copics. Picked up matching Basic Grey and Kaisercraft DPs. Added Hydrangeas and pink miniroses in the center.
The "text-stamp" is sent to me from my sweet friend Lim. Finally I had to add
some pink pearls ;-)

Here's a close up of little Daisy. If you look closely - you can see that I tried the feather technique shown on the copic creations blog (where Susana is sponsoring the fab prize).

Kram and hope that you will join us.
PS. Sorry for the short post - but Isac is still having high fever and need his Mom.

Yes - it's time for another RoP/BnW challenge. This time it's Susan that decided to challenge us with the colours Pink, Brown and Cream. But before I tell you more about the card - I need to say HAPPY B'DAY Victoria (my niece) - who turns 11 today!

I decided to use my new Basic Grey DPs together with my little Anya from the Rain, Snow and Shine collection. Coloured her with my copics and added highlights with my white gel pen.

Sentiment - Memories -from SU. Punched out matching flowers and added pink pearls in the center.
Also - sorry for the very short post today - but Isac came down with fever yesterday - so he's been "glued" to his Mom.

Valentine box


It's getting closer and closer to Valentine's Day and I decided to make this little Valetine's box.
I purchased the tutorial regarding the box from Becky. Must say that I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Filled the box with an altered matchbox and candle, a post-it-note holder and of course some chocolate:-)

The tutorial for the post-it-note holder is from Angie Juda. Here's a close up.

Close up of the chocolate. Made the box out of acetate sheet.

I also made a matching card to go with the box.
All supplies are from our local craftshop Pysselakuten - except the Ribbon and 3 of the stamps - they are from SU. Hope you like it and try to make one yourself.

Have a wonderful Saturday.

Added some flowers, pearls and a ribbon - and there you have it!
Must say that I am pleased with this one.

February is here

and so is another Try it out Tuesday. This week we are going to use Suzanne's fun and fab sketch below.

After a long day at work and then almost 3 hours on our garage roof (yesterday afternoon/evening) I decided that I was longing for Spring ;-) So it was just perfect that I received my order from Susana with the new Basic Grey DP - Sugar Rush last week! Love them and the other DPs I ordered.

I coloured sweet Emma with my copics - just love her and cut her out. Then I cut two circles with my nesties - one round and the other scalloped - since I wanted it to look like a huge flower. Layered Emma in front of them.

Added a few Bella Baubles and prima flowers. Yes - I received my mini prima roses from Susana and I know that I will be coming back for more soon :-).

Also - I hope you've noticed - Susana has new products in store for us. Happy that she made the CHA tour ;-)) Here are a few items that I've noted down on my next shopping list:

* Martha Stewart Tinsel

* Magic Mesh

* Flower Soft

Looking fwd to hear from you.

Kram - Anki

PS. You might wonder what I did for so many hours on our garage roof - well - I had to take away all the snow - (more than 50 cm) to make sure that the roof did not break. You should see my biceps after this winter - hm.......HUGE ;-)

Card for little Daan!

My dear blogfriend Renata asked me if I could help her to get the word out for a young little guy - Daan. Daan is 4 years old and has a brain tumor - which is sadly incurable.

Read more below from Renata and I hope you will join us and support this little boy in his struggle.

From Renata:

"Dear blogfriends, I know you all love to make cards so what's better than to do something you realy enjoy and at the same time make a little boy happy in the most difficult time of his young life?

Daan, the son of my sisters friend, is 4 years old and has a brain tumor which is sadly enough incurable. More and more body functions fail such as his legs can't carry him anymore. At the moment he gets radiation because his parents and the doctors will make his life as easy as possible and of course no one will loose hope!

I think it is heartbreaking and I'm so sad that I can't do anything to help him! That's why I aks you girls to make him a funny card so he has something good to look forward to and I think it will help his parents and two little sisters (Sacha (6) and Anna (2)) as well.

I also want to ask you to keep him in you prayers or send a little positive energy and thoughts to him, because you never know! Do you want to join in this small gesture, please send an e-mail to so I can send you the address you can send the card to. I like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love, Renata"

I know what I will be doing first thing tomorrow after work - a fun boyish card for Daan. I'm sure Isac will help me too - he love making cards and being the same age as Daan - then he def. know what a 4 year old boy will like. I hope you will join us for this good cause!

My thoughts and prayers to Daan and his family.
