Menus







I made some menus for my customer who ordered both the invitations and placecards. I hadn't thought of how to make some menus to go with the placecards. I wanted to repeat the scalloped ovals and I wanted a pretty easy design. I didn't want the menu to be to dominant on the table together with the placecards.

Have a great day where you are. Thanks for looking.

Pillow

I have loved knitting since I was pretty young, but after I had my own children I suddenly found that it was a hazzle to put it away every time I had to help one of my sons. So after several years without any knitting-projects I started knitting again this summer. I am so proud of this knittid pillow. I totally enjoyed the project and I think I will make at least one more. :)

Thanks for looking!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Confirmationcards

I was asked to make two confirmationcards for two girls. I decided to use this tag stamp from Kort  & Godt Hobby. I think it's such an easy stamp to use on a card. It makes the whole card easy to decorate. I haven't used much stash but have use a grunge stamp from Stempelglede to decorate the edges.

I didn't want to make two different cards because I was in a bit of hurry. So I have only changed the name so that each card is more personal.

On the inside I made a pocket so the customer could put money in it.

On the back I have decorated with another stamp from Stempelglede.

Today we have had great weather. A bit chilly in the shade, because it's definetly autumn. But we have had sun all day long, and it was warm enough to sit outside on the terrace when we ate our dinner. I guess the days will soon bring us colder weather.

In two weeks I am going to New York!! I am really looking forward to that. :)
I hope to find a store selling scrapbooking stuff. If you know of any, please let me know name and address. :)

Place cards

A customer ordered a bunch of place cards to a party. Here's the lot. 16 all together.

Here's how the card look like up close. The swirls are made by a Whiff of Joy stamp and is stamped with silver. I used the computer to print the names, and then cut out the ovals with some dies from Spellbinders.

This is how the card is standing.

This was the invitation I made for the same customer. I have used the same style of ovals as on the belt/closure of the card. The swirls are stamped in silver also here.

I hope you will have a great week-end. I have to leave for work now :)

New home




I made this card my sister. She and her family moved to a new house last year, but I visited their new home for the first time this summer.

I saw this smart way of making a card in a book I found in the library. It's a tag and an envelope.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Some old sewing projects

This is hanging on our bathroom door.

Drawstringbag for a sewing project.

Needle cushions in different patchwork patterns.

A small bag for some sewing notions.

All the projects are handsewn. Also the zipper on the little bag.

Thanks for looking. Have a great day.
