A bottlehanger for Copic Marker Norge

Hi all!
Today we have a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge and I have something to show you :)

Our challenge starting today is an old favorite, Anything Goes!
I love Anything Goes ♥

I have made a bottlehanger for today's challenge. My first thought was to make a door hanger as I have this fantastic stencil from Dutch Doobadoo, but when I finished it, it was a Bottlehanger ;)

Perfect to have if somebody suddenly invite you over, and you want to give a bottle of something nice ;)

Here it is ♥
Hope you like!
Image is a fantastic image from Paper Nest Dolls called Love Strung Ellie
I know I have used this before, but I love these colours and the image!

My colours:
Skin: E21-51-50-93
Hair: E 29-44-43-41-40
Skirt: E42-41-40
Red: T5, E19-07
Top: E81, W0 and blender
Shadow: W3-1-0-00

Looks pretty, don't you think?

Here you see the stencil.
Love all these fantastic stencils from Dutch Doobadoo. So easy to use, cheap and excellent quality!
I will ask Kreativ Scrapping to get some in the shop, as they are great!

Flowers from Kort og Godt
Dies from Magnolia, a DooHickey called Key Kit from last years Winter Wonderland collection
You can also see the softboard from DD under the flowers, that I just LOOOOVE.
Have to get me some more, as I am almost empty.. Yikes!

Hope you can join us this time!
Take care and thank you for coming here today

Hugs, Jill

New bloghop WOOP WOOP ;) And a sneak peek!

Hi all and welcome here today!
Last month we had a wonderful bloghop for Dutch Doobadoo with great prizes and a lot of inspiration from the team. We wanted to show you another product this month so we are showcasing one of the fabulous laser cut paper art products from Dutch Doobadoo.
I love them all I can tell you ♥

For today's bloghop I have made this chocolate card after a tutorial by a wonderful Norwegian crafter, Marianne.

And the Dutch Doobadoo product for today is this:
The nice things about the paper products is that you can color them with your Copics, distress them, colour them with pencils or Pan Pastels, or you can paint them, cover them with Frantage, AND they always looks amazing. I love them just the way they are. Normally I just distress the edges a wee bit, but sometimes not even that. They are wo beautiful I think.

At KREATIV SCRAPPING, my favorite craft shop in Norway you can find a lot of Dutch Doobadoo products.
HERE is the link to the shop and HERE you find all the Dutch Doobadoo products

I have used some other favorite products on my card today too.
I got these wonderful papers from Graphic 45, a 8x8" paperpad called Sweet Sentiments and don't you just love the colours on them?
Flowers from my favorite WOC and Kort og Godt.

Inside my card...
A yummy, scrummy chocolate to give away to a lovely friend for the upcoming Easter season.
Here you can also see the stars 

And what have we here...
A brand new, hot from the press, soon to be released image from The Paper Nest Dolls.
Meet Easter Bunny Ellie ♥
Sooo totally adorable. This beauty and a whole lot other wonderful stamps will be released 1st. March and you will find them too at Kreativ Scrapping.
These stamps are in deep etched red rubber of prima quality and I am totally in love with them!

Inside my card without the chocolate.
Texts from Kort og Godt and a lovely Magnolia DooHickey called Vintage Box Lacing Coffee on the edge.

And another peek of the image ♥
Coloured with my Copic, like always.
Take a look at the Kreativ Scrapping blog today and you will find all the colours!
Unfortunately her cheeks didn't turn out so well, I put on too many layers and the surface became all shiny and greasy. Can't help it, I am sorry ;)
Soooo...my friends
All you have to do is to leave a comment on every blog on the list and return back to Dutch Doobadoo and you have a chance to win a super prize!
You have three days to hop along and the 1st prize winner will be announced at the Dutch Doobadoo blog after that.

You should have reached my blog from my talented DT friend Marianne and the next on your list is Liz, which I know also have something utterly beautiful for you to look at :)
Enjoy your hop and if you ever get lost here is the list:

Have a wonderful day all you crafty souls out in blogland and thank you for coming here today.
Hugs, Jill

Hi all my wonderful friends and followers ♥
I am so lucky that you all stick with me even if I sometimes are the worlds worst blogger...

My health is slowly (waaaay to slowly in my opinion!) getting better with all this stuff I am eating, all treatment I get, all YOGA (lol, never thought I should take a yoga class!) I am doing and my super kind, but very expensive personal trainer...
I am not giving up, so you better be ready as I prepare to get back on track soon again ;)
Until then, I can't craft  or color so much (but when I do, I LOOOOVE it) and I try to not sit so much in front of the computer.

BUT today I want to show you a card.
It is with a lovely image from Paper Nest Dolls called Shamrock Ellie.

When I saw Shamrock Ellie for the first time I just fell in love with her right away... She is adorable!

Since I live in Norway we don't celebrate St. Patrick's day, so I have used her for a "thinking-of-you" card for one of my sweet friends. That is one of the things I like most with Christine's images, they are so versatile and can be used for several occasions.

Hope you like it ♥
I have two sweet ladies named Christine in my crafty life, and I care so much about them both.
Christine from Paper Nest Dolls is like my American big sister and it feels like I have known her for my whole life, even if I haven't! She makes all these wonderful images and I just love them more and more ♥

My other Christine is my Kreativ Scrapping boss, the sweetest lady and a dear friend. We can talk for hours and she always has great answers and ideas for everything ♥
They both spoil me bigtime, but I guess that works both ways. I have so much to thank them both for.
So since Valentine's day is tomorrow I just wanted to tell them both how much I appreciate their friendship and that I am so grateful to have them in my life.
Love you girls 

Ok, what to say about my card...
Papers are some wonderful Bildmålarna papers I got from Kreativ Scrapping. They are from a 6x6 paperpad called Soft Collection

Flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt
Cheesecloth and paperdoily and pearls... normal Jill stuff :P hehe
The tree is a die from Marianne design, LR 0203 (woohoo, that one is on sale too ;))

My image colored and ready ♥
Don't you just love her!
My Copic:
Skin: E21-51-50-93
hair: E29-47-44-42-41-40
Dress: E81, W0 and Blender
Orange: YR 34-23-21-20
Green: G99,YG 95-93-91

I don't think KREATIV SCRAPPING has her in store already as she has just been released, but if you like her, I know they will get her for you. BUt they have A LOT of others to chose from!

Have a wonderful day all my friends
take care

LOVE @Copic Marker Norge today!

Hi my blogging friends and thank you for coming here to see me today.

We have a new challenge at Copic marker Norge starting today, and since I am the boss this time it is time for....

♥ LOVE ♥

More or less! Let us see hearts, lovely colored images and sweet sentiments to the love of your life or someone you really care about ♥

My card today is for a friend.
My card base is made with a stencil from Dutch Doobadoo.
These stencils are really great, just to draw with a pencil and cut and your card is (almost) done. Quick and makes a great effect I think. These DD products are really my favorite these days. 
I have used the wonderful new Tilda With Springheart from latest Magnolia collection, the Lost and found collection and put her on top of one of my older Magnolia background fences.

Gorgeous papers from Maja design, Vintage spring basics
Heart banner die from LaLaLand Craft

My texts comes from LOTV, I have had them for ages and still love them.
Hearts in chipboard from DD and on the right side I have used a lovely newer die from Magnolia, So Wrapped Fern

My Copic colors:
Skin: E21-51-50-93
Hair: E44-43-42-40
Dress: E81, W0 and Blender 0
Heart: V99-95-93-91
Fence: E39-37-35-33-31, E44-41-40
Leafs/grass: E87-84-81, G99, YG 95-93-91
Shadow around: W3-1-0
Ground: W7-5, C4, W2, T2, W0, E 84-81

Hope you can join us this time at CMN.

Hi my friends

We are back with another lovely challenge at Kreativ Scrapping. Since February is the month of love, we want to see hearts on your creations this time. You have the whole month to join us and as usual we are looking forward to see your creations.

I am really happy with this card. Two lovely images from Paper Nest Dolls and drop dead gorgeous papers from Graphic 45

This card took a while to make, but I enjoyed every second of it.
Hope you like it as much as me.

I have used a big brown paper bag and made a card
On the front I have the lovely Paper Nest Dolls image Love Struck Ellie and she is surrounded by beautiful embellishment from WOC and Dutch Doobadoo and amazing papers from Graphic 45's new collection Sweet Sentiments.

My inside with another Paper Nest Dolls beauty, Love Grows Ellie
Both these stamps are recently released and you will find them in the shop at Kreativ Scrapping.
I have colored them with my Copic, colors listed below.

Another shot of the front with the tag taken out. 
You can put a gift inside together with the tag,- a chocolate, or a nice stamp for a crafty friend ♥

My little Love Grows Ellie with the tag pulled out a bit.

My tag. Lovely cut out pictures from the G45 papers, so easy to embellish these cards when you use so beautiful papers!
The heart is a new product from Dutch Doobadoo

Card and tag.. yeah, I know a lot of pictures... lol

 I have used the same colors for both images.
Not a surprise since I love these colors
