Boys' cards

Card no. one.

 Inside card no. one.
As you can see there is a pocket behind the label so we could put some money in there as a gift.

The back of card no. one.

Card no. two.

Inside card no. two.

The back of card no. two.

It's fun to make two different cards but with the same papers, stamps and stash.

Flowery card for a lady

A female friend turned 50 earlier this year. I made her this flowery card.
The picture was found on the internet.

I made a pocket inside the card to put a gift certificate.
Lots of flowers also here.

My personal stamp with more flowers. :-)

I love the colours on this card. I bought one extra of the design paper just because of the colours. :-) That made it possible for me to make another card with the same papers. I will show you this card later on.

Have great week. Thanks for looking.

Birthdaycard for my brother-in-law

I bought this bird stamp and just wanted to use it as quick as possible.
Since I had to make a card for my brother-in-law I decided that it had to be a simple card.
The text is hand written, as I guess you can see...

This cupcake stamp was a gift in a magazine I bought. I simply love magazines, crafty magazines there is. And I simply love magazines offering free stamps...

Simple back. To make it a bit more exciting I put some flowers around my personal stamp.

Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Another confirmationcard

A customer asked me to make a confirmationcard for a boy.
This boy likes to play guitar and football so I used my KH Design stamps with footballs and guitars on. Perferct for this kind of project. :-)
In this first picture I show you how I closed the card with a rough string.

Here's the card without the string.

Close-up of the corners of the front. I put some flowers with beads on to brighten up the look a bit.

Here is the card opened up a bit...

....and here's the card fully opened up. On the left side I have printed out the letters from my computer and then cut them out like this.
On the middle page I have put a pocket to put a gift certificate or some money.
On the right side I have printed the text the customer wanted me to use. The small branches are a stamp from Lissie Design.

Close-up of the guitar.

Close-up of the pocket.

This is the back of the card.

Holidays are over. I have been working for over a week now and I know that this week will include three late shifts at work. And the Saturday! Hmm. I am looking forward to Sunday! :-) That will be my only day to relax this week.

Well, thanks for looking.
Have a great day.

Invitations for a wedding party

I was asked to make some invitations for my niece's wedding party. She and her husband got married last autumn but they didn't invite anyone to a party or to celebrate the day together with them. After some months they decided to invite friends and family to a big party to celebrate the marriage. I made approx. 45 invitations. Since it wasn't going to be a typical wedding, only the party, I decided to make a fun invitation. My niece had decided to use the colours lilac, dark blue and silver in her decorations and flowers, so I wanted to use those colours on the invitations.

This Magnolia stamp I have had for a long time and I think it was perfect for this occation.

The insides. I love to decorate all four sides so I just had to put something on the left side as well. Since I was going to make approx. 45 invitations I didn't want to put a lot of work on a small detail. But I must say that it took me quite a while to stamp, paint and cut out this little heart banner for all the invitations.... :-)

Really simple back again. But even though it doesn't seem a lot of work, to make those fake stitches around the edges it takes a while. :-)

Here's the last batch of invitations. I also made a small batch which I sent to my niece much earlier than these last ones.

I am still on holidays in our new campervan. I love this kind of vacation. Perfect for our family.
My niece's wedding party is this Saturday, tomorrow! I am looking forward to it. I will show you the card I made for her and her husband as soon as possible. :-)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Confirmationcard for my son

When my son was confirmand in May I made this card for him.
It is one of these circular cards which you can fold up to an envelope.
This is the card folded up and tied with a ribbon.

This is the back of the card.

This is how the card looks like when it is opened up.
In the pocket in the middle I have copied, printed and cut out some old Norwegian money. This was just a fun way to show my son the amount of money we gave him as a gift on this special day.

When he removed the fake money he could see the tag with more personal message from us to him.

Here also the tag is removed from the card.

His monogram.

Some wise words; Wherever you go, bring your whole heart.

A cute confirmand... :-)

More wise words; You don't make a trail if you follow others.

This is a close-up of the center of the card.

My son's confirmation was in end of May, and it was a great day. Busy, but absolutely a day to remember. It was a first timer for us parents to arrange a confirmation, but we know already that we have more experience when our youngest son will be a confirmand in two years time.

Well, today it's a great day. The sun is shining and it's warm. I have to work overtime, but when I come home I know we will have a barbeque on our terrace. I'm looking forward to that!

Have a great day. Thanks for looking.

Quick birthdaycard for a boy

This card was made in a hurry. Suddenly my son came home with an invitation and I had to make a card.  Really simple design works best when I am rushed.

I received the candle stamp and the muffin stamp in a magazine.

Simple back again.

Next week I am going to my niece's wedding party. I have been looking forward to this for quite a while now but still I haven't made a card to go with the gift. Maybe it's time to sit down and do that tonight..... :-)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

And yet another christmascard

This is my seventh christmascard this year. I made it in May, but I haven't had the time to show it here before now.

I have found a way to make the insides and I guess all the christmascards this year will be more or less like this.

Simple back again.

It is definetely vacation in my house nowadays. I am sleeping in every morning and I don't get out of bed until 8 am. It feels good.
I hope that we will get our campervan today. I am looking forward to drive around visiting different places.

Don't forget to visit my blogoversary giveaway. You find it two posts down from here.

Thanks for visiting. :-)

Confirmation card for a girl

This card looks like an envelope when it's closed. I have closed it with a ribbon.

This is the upper part without the ribbon.

This is the inside of the card. In the middle there is a tag to write a personal message.

The tag is removed.

This is the tag.

The name of the confirmand.

A good advice; "You don't make footprints where everyone else is walking."

Another advice; "Wherever you go bring your whole heart."

Pretty girl, just like the confirmand.

I have glued the ribbon under the personal stamp to make sure it doesn't disappear when it's opened.

Well, well, well, it's summer and I have started my vacation. Hopefully we can start driving in our new campervan tomorrow!

Don't forget my blogoversary! You will find it in the post below.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting. :-)
