Tissue box for Pysseltagen

Afternoon,
today I've altered a tissue box for a challenge at Pysseltagen. I've masked in a Magnolia image in a spellbinder label 10 together with a frame stamp from Waltzing mouse stamps. Design paper from Tim Holtz and flowers from I am Roses. The box on the side can hold a box of cough drops or some tea bags.

DCD - colour combo

This fortnight at Die Cut Dreams we want you to use brown, pink and cream on your projects. I know it's a favourite combo for lots of crafters, me included =).

The Sarah Kay images are like made for these colours so I used this little cutie and then I punched - alot =). I like the fact that you can fold in the flaps on the MS punches and then punch again inside the frame. The front sentiment can be found here. DP from Pion design.



And it's also my last week as guest designer for Countryscrap and the napkin fold card goes in pretty much the same colours =) but the DP is Melissa Frances 5th Avenue.

Other challenges:

Sweet stampin - Anything goes

Allsorts - clean and simple

Clean and simple is just not up my alley so when I learned that it would be this week's challenge at Allsorts I nearly panicked...

And then I decided to cheat =), well not exactly cheat but a bottle tag can be made with less elements and the designer paper was just the right shape to make it look like a complete motif in itself. So with some punched flowers (using the back of the DP) and a ribbon I was done, phew!

I'm sure it won't be a challenge at all for you guys, you'll create gorgeous projects and I'll be very, very jealous!

My new coffee mug

After reading on the scrap forum Svensk Scrapbooking about people getting these mugs and changing the decor paper on them I just had to join the crowd =). Got this mug from Lagerhaus that has a sort of cool text but isn't really me...



This on the other hand is totally me =)

GDT Country scrap

This week at Countryscrap my contribution is a Tilda card. I got some lovely Prima paper so the distress ink Tumbled Glass worked marvellously. And I looooove the pearl decorations they have. I was a bit hesitant about the metal leaf but it turned out nicely!

GDT Country scrap, week 2

Morning,
this is my second post today and also my second week as guest designer for Countryscrap. This time I have made a corset bag using a template from Card carousel and DP from Tim Holtz. (I enlarged the template from A4 to A3 cause that was a better size for me.) I really enjoyed doing this and it's a perfect gift =)

DCD - flower power

This fortnight at Die Cut Dreams the challenge is Flower Power which means you must use at least five flowers. I decorated a small tin can using paper from Melissa Frances, lace from Panduro, a die cut key from Magnolia and some ribbon I found in the drawer. It's rather small so it's good for keeping pills or vitamins in. The last picture is the can in it's original state - hidious isn't it =).

Allsorts - flowers and swirls

Morning,
at Allsorts this week the theme is Flowers and Swirls and I used a rhododendron image from one of our sponsors, you can find it here. It's a very clean card, makes me all itchy to do them =) but the flower is so pretty it really didn't need much decorating. The swirls I made with pearl maker.

Gäst DT - Country Scrap

There will be a brief summary in English at the end of this post =)

Tjoohoo,
jag fick ett paket från CountryScrap med massor av fina saker för att skapa av och det ska jag göra varje måndag i september. Här är mitt första bidrag och det går att läsa mer om det på Countryscraps blogg.


Countryscrap wanted me to be guest designer for a month and they sent me this packet with gorgeous stuff to create from. I will post my work every Monday in September, and this box for three tealights and a matchbox with a matching card is my first creation. Thanks Camilla for the tutorial =)

Allsorts - blue and green


Keeping my fingers crossed for Blogger to co-operate cause I'm in Spain =). It was a sort of last-minute decision to go there with some friends who have an apartment outside Alicante.

At Allsorts this week the theme is blue and green, a perfect combo for cards to baby boys =). I love this image, I think I've mentioned that previously =).
