Penny Black christmascard

Oh, yes, I've started on this years christmas cards already!
It feels good to have accomplished what I said I wanted to do when I started this year. Four christmas cards each month, and the ones for January are finished!

I have made room on the left inside to stick a family photo when time comes for me to write inside the card.

Simple back. One of the clues to manage to make all the cards I want is to keep it simple. :)

I have found out that this weeks challenge over at Penny Black Saturday challenge is to use some of the latest stuff I bought for cardmaking. On front you can see the snowflake punch I bought in December but didn't use until now. And the papers I actually bought on January sales this year. (weak person :))

Have a great day and thanks for visiting.

Card for a man

Maybe this is a bit cute to be a man's card, but I was in the mood to make something with more embellishment. The image I've had coloured in for ages so I thought it would be nice to finally use it. The texts both on the tag and on the card are heat embossed.

Today we have cold weather again. Minus 12 degrees Celsius and it looks like the sun will come out. That means I just have to go for a walk with the dogs again. And I will bring my camera. I love to take photos when it's like this outside.

Have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog.

My sister's birthdaycard

This is the card I made for my oldest sister. She turns 51 years this Friday. I don't think she ever visits my blog so I can show the card here before she receives the card.
When I found this stamp from Art Impressions I knew that it would be perfect to use on a card for my sister. I think this lady looks really cool.

This is the insides. I have stamped the text "Happiness the rest of your life can only be achived by living day by day".
The roses are a stamp from Panduro, and they are coloured with Twinkling H20.

This is the back of the card. I have stamped the same rose as on the insides all over the back with a watermark stamppad. I like the effect that there is something on the background, but it isn't too much.

I am so happy that I have found some time to sit down and create again!

Thank you to all visiting my blog and espescially those of you leaving a comment.
Have a great time.

Card for a boy turning 14 years old. Simple design.

The insides.

Ooops! it did it again.... I guess everyone can see that this is the back of the card.

Card for a boy turning 12 years old. Also really simple design.


This time the picture of the back didn't turn sideways.

I will hopefully have time to sit down and be creative tomorrow. I am looking forward to create a card again. But first of all I have to clean up a ton of stuff on my desk.

Thanks for looking.
Hugs, Kristin :)

Old cards

Happy new year to you all! I know we are already a week into the new year, but the year is still pretty new, isn't it!??

This is a card I made for a boy turning 14 years old last October. Since I haven't been much around here lately I just haven't showed it to you before. :) As you can see I am not much into cardmaking nowadays. The few cards I'm making are super-simple. But they are home made! :)

This picture turned when I uploaded it but as you can see it's the back of the card.

Yet another simple card. This time for a girl turning 11 years.

Flowers everywhere :)

The back!

Last christmas I didn't send a single homemade christmascard! The years before I sent mainly handmade cards so the difference was big. Well, at least for me personally. But I just didn't feel okay to spend a lot of time crafting. My crafting room is a disaster and it has been for the last months. I have to make a huge effort to clean up the mess, and after that I will be able to craft without bumping into things and I will be able to find my supplies!

I have a plan this year! I will make 4 christmascards each month, and by the end of November I will have 44 cards. My plan is to sit down and make 4 pretty similar cards in one go. They have to be simple so they will get done in one sitting. Isn't that a great plan? I know a lot of you already have done this for several years already. And two years ago I was a good girl and made 1 christmascard each week, or at least every second week. I fell off that wagon and now I have to climb up again. :)

Hope you are all doing great. Maybe I will try to visit you all soon. :)

Kristin :)
