Another Bottlehanger for Easter

Hi my friends!
I have been busy the last week working and catching up with my crafty life again. I was so lucky to go with Kreativ Scrapping to Stordascrappen last weekend and like always it was so much fun.

I always come home super inspired and happy after weekends with my crafty friends, and even if it is a lot work it is just so much fun and I enjoy every second of it!

I had a miniclass last Saturday where we made a Bottlehanger for Easter. A lot of the women at Stord don't like to color, so I took a copy of my coloring for those who didn't wanted to color the lovely image. 

We used one of the Easter images from Paper Nest Dolls called Easter Bonnet Avery and I just loooove her with her big hat!

Hope you like too ♥
Again I have used the fantastic stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. This one was really popular last weekend and I think we sold every stencil we had ;)

My papers are from Magnolia, last years Easter collection. 
Flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt

The edge die behind the image is a Magnolia DooHickey celled Vintage Box Lacing Coffee
I have used some cleesecloth, pearls and thin carrogated paper from Joy!

My Copic combination is somewhere in my crafty mess...
Will look for it later ;)
And here are some photos from Stord and my miniclass.

Sooo focused ;)

I always love to do things like this ♥
Have a great day!

Good morning!
This is going to be a lovely day I think and I have so many nice things to do today, so this will be a short post ;)
We are having a new, GREAT challenge at Copic Marker Norge today as Gunn made us a really nice BINGO board. I love bingo challenges!

I am on a roll showing you the new Zodiac collection from Magnolia and today I am showing you Sagittarius Tilda... Sooo beautiful!
Hope you like ♥
I have colored up the background too this time.
It is not so often I do that, but I am very pleased with the end result ♥
Every month at Kreativ Scrapping we are having a Copic inspiration post and this time I totally forgot it! My KS DT friend Tine made a lovely tutorial on drawing and coloring clouds and this is my take on it. If you have the time you should check out Tine's work too HERE

My gorgeous flowers... 
Love them! First I tried to make my card without flowers, but NO I just couldn't...lol
I have some old berries from Kort og Godt. Kreativ Scrapping got some new berries in stock HERE and they look really smashing, so I can't wait to get mine..
Today I have used my WOC Carnation flowers and Kort og Godt Hortensia and some white and yellow 10mm open roses. You find the whole selection of WOC flowers here

How perfect is this bow and arrow charm with Sagittarius Tilda?
LOVE it. 
I have used two Magnolia DooHickeys tags This is Cloudy tags and Jolly tags.
I have also used buttons.
I have used The color green, Flowers and buttons from the Bingo board, almost forgot to tell you.

My cardbase is a gift I got from my friend Tammy last year and the designpapers are like always Maja Design, this time it is from the lovely Sofiero Collection.

My Copic colors:

Hi all my sweethearts!
I have a special card to show you today. 
This card was published in Ett Trykk, an amazing Norwegian Craft magazine in February and I think I almost made Christine (owner of PND) cry when it got published ;)

Hope you like it!
I loooove this stamp from Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called Love Struck Ellie. I have also used another fantastic little supply from a friend of mine, a fantastic Cloud-template by my friend Tammy Louise  from Handmade by TLC. Check out her Etsy shop HERE for all kinds of wonderful templates!
The fantastic stamp you will find at KREATIV SCRAPPING like almost everything on my card

This was made before I got my fantastic phototent, so the pictures are really not the best I'm afraid..
I made this card for Valentine in February so I have marked 14 on both the bingo boards, but the LOVEly image I think I can use all year around!
Love the Bingo stamp from Joy!Craft too. My link goes to one simliar I think as the Joy!Craft stamp is sold out at the moment.

Better light maybe. You can see one of the fabulous Dutch Doobadoo products too here. This one is Key and lock found HERE

Front picture
I have used a lot of amazing flowers from WOC, my favorite.
The papers are Pion and the angelwing die is a Magnolia DooHickey.
Lace and Pom Pom ribbon from Kreativ Scrapping. The pink pom pom is from Melissa Frances and I have it in white and cream too. Perfect for all projects!

Place to write a little LOVE note

And here together with a gift for one of your girlfriends ;)

My Copic colours:
Skin: E21-51-50-93 and shadow with BV 34
Hair: E47-44-42-41-40
White: E81, W0 and Blender 0
Pink: R02-01-00-0000 and tiny bit of R24

Take care ♥

Good morning my amazing friends and followers.
I guess you all have seen the amazing Zodiac collection from Magnolia by now, and  today I have another of the wonderful stamps to show you!

I want to show you how versatile these stamps are, so today I have made a friendship card with the lovely Libra Tilda
Hope you like it ♥

To be honest this is one of the cards I have made recently, that I love the most.
I loved coloring her in this golden yellow tone and everything was just perfect...

Another paperbag card with a white candybag from my local grocery shop ;)
I promise I didn't steel them, I asked for them and got three...lol
The lady there looked very skeptic when I told I was using it to make a card!
Here you see the tag half pulled out

The back of the card. 
My friend Tammy made this stamp years ago and I just love it. Hope you can read the text, I think it is sooo funny!

I made this text with some help from a few crafty, English friends.. Sometimes I write Norwenglish and I wanted it to be perfect ;)

Well, I took a lot pictures ;)
Don't you just love the Joy!Craft bingostamps? I sure do!
Flowers are mostly WOC and some old pale orange ones that I just LOVE and just have one or maybe two left of. 

Under the image I have used a Cheery Lynn doily die that I borrowed from a friend, and that I just NEED now. Love both this one and the bigger size. KREATIV SCRAPPING have both in stock ;) Thank God...

Again I have used some amazing Dutch Doobadoo products too. 
I have used the new softboard and some of the small feathers and a little tree.

I simply dig these products!!

Last peek of the princess... Loooove her to bits!
Here are my Copic colors, and this time I was inspired by Alyce (well I am always inspired by her!) to try out a new a lil darker skintone. Looks great I think, so thanks again hunny :D

Good morning blogland ♥
I have something really special created today for the new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. When I got my DT package from Magnolia last week with the new Magnolia Ink, I also got some new stamps from the fantastic Zodiac collection 2014. OH MY GOD! Are they fantastic or what!

For today's project I have used Aries Tilda and made my little darling Gabriella a new door sign for her birthday. Her birthday is not until april, but my little Aries Tilda was so perfect for her I just couldn't wait♥

The challenge from Copic Marker Norge starting today is

Hope you find time to join us. Here is the link to the blog.

For those of my readers coming to Stordascrappen in the end of march will have the chance to take a miniclass with me and make a bottle hanger for Easter. Give me a shout so I know you are interested.

I have used Maja Design papers from Frost Basics collection and someVintage Spring Basics from last year. Is those collections just amazing or what! I have used two Magnolia stamps. Behind the gorgeous new Aries Tilda I have stamped the Silent Night background from the older Santa Collection

Isn't she cute?
Like always I have used flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt.
I must also tell you that Kreativ Scrapping got a TON of new flowers in last night and I almost died when I saw it! Find them all HERE
Under the flowers i have again put some of the amazing softboard from Dutch Doobadoo, and of all my products this is one of the things I like most at the moment. You can find that one too at Kreativ Scrapping.

I wrote Gabriella's name and ringed around her date of birth.
Can't believe my little princess soon is six years old and ready to school. Time really flies ♥
