Allsorts - Last minute gifts

My turn to introduce the last challenge for this year at Allsorts challenge. Because you see, this challenge will last for two weeks to give us all a well earned Christmas holiday :).

Since this time of the year can be hectic you sometimes end up needing some last minute gifts - you know the feeling? So we might as well set the theme to Last Minute Gifts :)

As our sponsor we have Marianne Design offering a surprise gift to a lucky winner.

I chose to make a gift box where you pull the ribbon tab to open the box and filled with goodies it will make a perfect last minute gift :)

Allsorts - White Christmas

Morning,
today we celebrate Lucia and I will sing with parts of the Snowflake Singers Chorus at the town mall today. But before I head off I want to tell you about the challenge at Allsorts starting today. The theme is White Christmas and I figured a snowman is White enough =).

Have a lovely day all!

Allsorts - Animals

Morning,
tonight is our Christmas concert with Snowflake singers, I'm soooo excited!
But not so much that I would forget the weekly challenge at Allsorts :). This week the theme is Animals.

I chose this adorable Furry Friends Bunny from Sugar Nellie and made a clean and simple card to make the bunny pop. This bunny is free with purchase from Funky Kits! So I will take this opportunity and remind you that there is an ongoing challenge at the Sugar Bowl with the theme Anything goes.

Allsorts - Milestone birthday

At Allsorts this week we want you to create something connected to an important birthday - a milestone of sorts.
I made a card using an old Hanglar image (oh, how sad it is that these stamps don't exist any more).
I tried to make all colours soft and calm to make the image the fokal point. I see now that I probably could put some glossy accents on the numbers to make them pop more.
Other challenges:
Lovely hanglar - use a die cut
Simon says - anything goes
PTW - sketch 43

Sugar Bowl - Anything goes

Hi all,
today it's time for a new challenge at the Sugar Bowl and the theme is Anything goes. Isn't it lovely to be able to create whatever you like with these fabulous images!
I chose to work with On the wings of love from Funky Kits, a wonderful image to colour. Distressed edges with both Walnut Stain and Black Soot to get a vintage feeling.

As always one lucky winner of this challenge gets to choose 4 sweet Sugar Nellie digis...

and
a second prize winner will receive 2 Sugar Nellie digis.....woo hoo!!

(or 6 pieces, if there are over 100 entries)

Allsorts - No DP allowed

This week at Allsorts the theme is No designer paper allowed. That can be hard since there are so many wonderful papers to use and choose from. But I think my fellow DT:s at Allsorts did a fantastic job and hopefully they will inspire you to create lovely things. I used a plain white paper, stamped the christmas tree from Reprint twice to get the different shades of green (Forest Moss distress ink pad) and added the smudged post stamp from Inkido.


Other challenges:
Less is More - Jingle all the way

Allsorts - anything but a card

It's Saturday and once again time for a challenge at Allsorts and this week it's one of my absolute favourites: anything but a card. I love doing boxes and I adore making all sorts of stuff prettier :)

This item is a bit sad but it's very beautiful, it's the urn that holds my beloved Oscar, the absolute love of my life and the most beautiful cat that ever lived. It was of plain light wood when I got it so I painted it white, distressed the edges and added lace, flowers and a poem.

Allsorts - poppies

This week at Allsorts Susan has set the theme to Poppies/Remembrence since it's Remembrence Day on Nov 11. This is not celebrated in Sweden but in many other countries. The day celebrates the end of World War I and the poppies are a symbol for the blood spilled on the battlefield (and the fact that lots of poppies grew on the battlefield in Flanders). I found the poppy image as a freebie here.
