Flowers/ Nature @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning from Røst.
It's day for a new challenge over at

I got the lovely image The Fairy and the Wizard from The Paper Shelter to play with, and decided to use it on a "paperbagcardholder". 
Of course the image is colored with ProMarkers - and the fairy's wings just had to have a layer of glitter on!
As the challenge is Flowers/ Nature I was about to go absolutely crazy in flowers on the bag, but after removing about 2/3 of the flowers and leaves before glueing them down this is what it ended like:




Inside the paperbag I put a card - for personal greetings...

...and with a pocket for some money

The pocket has velcro closing

Best Christmas Wishes


Hi again
I have christmas projects going on most of the year, but now as the days are shorter, the weather colder and nights are darker, I use most of my scrap room time working on christmas projects.
Oh, I love this time of the year!

- And I love making christmas cards, especially cards like this, kind of shabby chic/ vintage, full of dies and bling, ribbons and laces, twine, cheesecloth and Frantage and "splatted" with Gesso.
The DPs (that barely are showing) on this card are from MajaDesign.
Inside I used a textstamp from Papirdesign.
The image (Magnolia) is coloured with ProMarkers.

I have decorated a brown paperbag - nice for a halloween treat, I think.

Isn't the web and spider dies (Yvonne Creations) just adorable - I love them!
I attached one of the spiders with a thin black thread, so it can move around.
I also used some black lace, some pom pom ribbon, a halloween charm and a pumpkin pin to decorate the paperbag.

Confirmationcard wtih Magnolia Image


Hi again.
Between most christmas- and birthdayprojects I thought I'd show a confirmation card I made a while ago. This one has the shabby chic, fully loaded style that I like so much. I think Magnolia images are just perfect for this style. The image is coloured with ProMarkers. Around it I sprinkled on some Frantage. DPs used are from Papirdesign, and the cardstocks are from Bazzill.
I used several dies, a MS Punch, lace, cheesecloth, seambindingribbon, twine, charms, a button, halfpearls and pearlstrings. The flowers are dipped in frantage (then heated to fasten the stuff). All paperedges are inked With DistressInk WalnutStain.
Inside the card I stamped on a poem and made a Pocket for either a giftcard or some Money.

Christmas Notebook


Hello again, friends and followers.
Suddenly I got the house all to myself as the rest of the family went fishing. There's still more than an hour to NCIS starts, so I thought I'd have some happy time in my work room :)

Tonight I'll show you a little christmas note book that I made. Well - I made the cover to put a store bought notebook in... Quite handy when preparing for christmas.
I used Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, and DPs from Maja Design, some twine, a label holder and a couple of brads to keep it in place. All papers are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
The border on the picture panel is made with a Martha Stewart Punch.
Here it is:
