Another Beaded Bracelet

I had to try out one more beaded bracelet. Cannot give up after one go :-)
It is really fun making beaded jewelry again......don`t know why I gave it up in the first place :-)

This is how my second bracelet turned out.

Kind of Vintage

I have made yet another vintage card (......kind of vintage anyway) and I think it turned out quite good.
I love making cards in different tone of blue, it always turns out good :-)

This is how my card turned out this time.



I have used light blue patterned paper which I have made to look like tiles, flowers from Kort og Godt and some of them is from a uk website (which I of course cannot remember at this time). I have also used some bling, stickers, metal embellishment and stickles. The text stamp I have used is from Kreativ Hobby and the image stamp is from Unity Stamp.

Thanks for visiting!

Vintage Card

I tried making another vintage card using the same teqhniques as the first one. I think I did better on the Vintage Tag Card, but I guess I will do better with a little more practice :-)

Anyway, this is how this card turned out :-)

Boys or Girls Birthday card






Me and one of my nieses had a lot of fun making our own patterned paper.
We made it with shaving foam and ink - it looks really good, don`t you think? :-)

It is kind of messy making these kind of patterned paper, but it is really a lot of fun and you can make them just as you like :-)

Christmas card in July

I try to make up some Christmas cards as well, but I must admit that it`s going kind of slow :-)
It`s hard making Christmas cards during summer and I struggle for many days with every card I make....hopefully it will be better when I have had my summer vacation (which is still far away :-)

This is the Christmas card I made this time:-)

Birthdaycard for my dad!!

We celebrated my dad`s birthday this Saturday with a typical norwegian dinner named "fårikål" (this is meat from lamb and cabbage boiled in water with salt and whole black pepper), this is really good :-)
And since the weather here in Norway is quite bad these days my mom spent the whole last week making a lot of different cakes :-) So we had a good time with a lot of good things to eat :-)

Anyway.......since it was my dad`s birthday, I had to make him a card. He has a greenhouse which we got him for his 60th birthday and he really enjoy fooling around trying new things to grow in there. My inspiration for his card came from that :-)

So here is what I came up with (I had to make it simple due to not much time to make the card.......not as much time as I would`ve wanted anyway :-)

Tag book




This litle tag book thingy has taken me forever to finish. I started of really good, but got into a bumpy ride after a while. Finally it is finished.......at least at the outside - I am still missing some pictures to the inside. :-)
Well....this tag book is for my sisters youngest daughter and I am adding some pictures from our vacation to come. She will join us for our vacation this summe and I thought it was a good idea to make her a litle tagbook with some memories from the trip :-)
So after our vacation I will enjoy sitting down with pictures, scissors, glue and embellishment finishing this tag book.

Beer Mitten


I have made a mitten for drinking beer outside!
This is great if you want to sit outside in the sun drinking a cold beer without beeing cold on your hand.
Here in Norway this might be a great thing to have all year long :-)
I have mad a lot of these and I am absolutely going to make some more of these - everybody just loves them :-)
My mum ordered 4 of these as soon as se saw them so I will not be stuck with the mittens I am knitting for very long  LOL

I haven`t decided if I am going to write something on this mitten yet so for now it is done :-)

Mitten has been knitted in wool yarn, washed in machine and then air-dried, cannot wait to use mine :-)
