Hej ladies!

How are you? Are you ready for a mini-tutorial from me?
I decided to create my very own paperstar - inspired by the cute Melody.  I thought she was singing X-mas songs and decided to create a little X-mas card with her + a matching paper star.

This is how I made the star:

Cut your choice of DP into 4 stripes. Size depending on how large you want the star. Here I divided the cardstock into pieces -6" long.

Score the DP - depending on how wide you would like the "folds" to be.
 Fold each piece as an accordion:

Glue the pices together and then the edges together to create a circle:

Decorate the center - I used a flower:

Repeat the process with different sizes if you want several layers on the star:

Then pick a ribbon of your choice and hang your new X-mas star in the window.
Hope you like it.

Also - don't miss the new items that Susana has in the store. You find some details HERE.

Wish you all a wonderful day!

Have a fun X-mas

Happy Sunday ladies!
Today the sun is shining and that's wonderful - despite the fact that you can see that it didn't help to clean the windows the other week (all the raining really didn't help), hm..... ;-)

Well - to brighten my day and hopefully yours - I  have this X-mas  card made with the cute Little Elf Kin from Mo Manning.

Added mini glass pearls to the X-mas ball - so the card is actually a little bit heavy.
Hope you like it and have a wonderful Sunday!

Snowman soup & blog hop

Happy Friday ladies!
Welcome to the SCACD blog hop. Just to make sure that you don't get lost - here's the blog hop order:
Danni - Donalda - Lori - Dianne - Colleen - Lorraine - AlexMelanieSuzanne - Anki (me).

One question for you - do you have snow yet where you live? We don't and that's really unusual for Sweden this time of year. I still love though a cup of hot cocoa and of course this cute little stamp "A Cuppa" really gave me the  excuse to create a Snowman soup gift.
Here's a pic of the altered bag:

Coloured her with my copics. The pattern on her outfit was made with my white gel pen.
Added sentiment from my sweet friend Kathy. Ribbon and pearls from stash.

Hope you like her and have fun shopping (you know that it's completely OK to be your own secret Santa sometimes ;-)

Anna-Lena 50 & SCACD sneak peeks + blog candy

Hi friends!

Hope you all are doing fine. I'm down with fever and a cold - feels like the flu - so I'm not moving fast these days. I guess it's that time of the year.

Anyway - just wanted to pop in and show you a card that I made upon request from Isac's teachers. His teacher Anna-Lena turned 50 and her colleagues asked me if I could create a card for her.

I decided to use one of my fav Victoria Case stamps - Scarlett Bonita. Coloured her with my copics of course.

DP from SU
Embellies: pearls, lace and flowers

The card is decorated inside as well with matching DPs. Just forgot to take a pic of that ;-)

Also - you don't want to miss the new cuties coming this Friday to SCACD and the chance to win some candy. Check out the SCACD store blog for more details.

Kramis and I'm on my way back to bed,

Lantern, altered matchbox and note book

Hello ladies!

Just a quick post from me - and this time - no card. I finally got the time to create this little
lantern. The tutorial is available in the latest issue of the Swedish magazine Inzpira.

Here's the result where I've used the latest DP from Maja Design. 

A pic from inside the lantern. The windows are made with window sheets from SU that I've embossed - using the embossing folder Royalty. 

The handle and the lid from above: Used my MS punch to the handle. Roses and leaves from my local craft shop - Pysselakuten. 

Here's the final lantern. I used an electric tea candle - so that I don't start a fire ;-) Snowflakes made with my punches (the large one from SU) as well as the branches. Lace from SU. Pearls from Pysselakuten. 
Then I have altered a match box with matching Maja Design DP. The angel is a button that I purchased at Pysselakuten. Sentiment God Jul = Merry X-mas from the DP.

I would also like to show you an altered note book .

The stamp is a winter landscape that I embossed with vintage embossing powder. You can't see it from the angle on the photo above but here's a close up that might show it better:

Also need to show you a close up photo of the cute angel button:

Hope you like it.

Two cards for Christening

Happy Sunday ladies!

Hope you all are doing fine. I'm rather tired after a wonderful b'day weekend (yes - I celebrated my 25th b'day again on Friday *lol*) and after using my new treadmill that I got from hubby and son.

Today I have 2 cards to show you. I was asked to create 2 cards for a Christening coming up 11/11-11.
I didn't have any baby images for Christenings - but then I popped over to Mo's store and found these 2 cuties. They are both coloured with copics.

DP: Oliver and Olivia
Embellies: Pearls, charms, buttons and lace from stash.
Sentment: Computer generated by me

Hope you like them.

No lines technique

Hej ladies!
Here's a very old card that I forgot to show you. If you remember - Make it crafty showed us
the no lines technique. I decided to try this technique with this cute digital stamp Pipi Petal. I thought that she was soo cute - that I printed out a large image and then I coloured her with my copics.

Here's the result:

Hope you like her and that try this technique as well.
