Another christmascard

Cute snowman, perfect for a christmas greeting.
This is my sixth christmascard this year. Still a long way to go.

Simple inside. I plan to put a picture on the left side.

I love my special christmas personal stamp.

Thanks for looking.

Birthdaycard for my niece

When my niece turned 9 in April I made her this card. I think this motif is really cute. It's from Belles n Whistles.

I have used a dry embossing folder from QuicKutz.
All the small rectangular stamps with the calendar and the other texts are from Norsk Stempelblad.

Once again I have used my "Hug" stamp as a decoration on both the edges.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas in June

I had a great plan at the start of this year. I was going to make four christmascards each month of the year, and then I would have all the card I needed in time for christmas. That was the plan.
January went with four christmascards made.
February went with no christmascards made.
March went with no christmascards made.
April went with two christmascards made.
May went with no christmascards made.
June is not over yet, so I have a hope to make at least a couple of christmascard the next few days.

And of course I will fix my blogoversary.
What happens to my time? It is just disappearing.

Today we looked at some used campervans. We might actually buy one. And that will be our holidays this year, driving around in the campervan. :-)

Thanks for looking. :-)

Birthdaycard for my sister-in-law

My sister-in-law turned 42 in end of April. She received this card from me.
The image is one I downloaded from internet and I have used it on a card before.

This calendar stamp is one I have used a lot. Since I can chose which month to write it is pretty versatile.
The border stamp at the bottom is a new one I bought on my last trip to Bikuben. I saw the stamp long time ago in someone's stamp collection, but have never been lucky enogh to find it in the store myself. Now that I found it I just had to buy it!

I love this stamp, "Hug". I have used it a lot as decoration like here, or as a text.

The border on the blue designpaper is made with a Fiskars punch. I am really glad I bought it when I found it. This goes for the punches I have for the oval and scalloped oval as well. They make it so much easier to punch out my personal stamp for the back of the cards I make.

I know, I know.... My blogoversary is over and I haven't celebrated it yet. I will come back to this as soon as possible. Promise!!!

Have a great day.

A lady's birthdaycard

I made this card for my cousin. She turned 40 years in April. Hopefully she had a great day.

Inside, with the text; You're never to old to dream new dreams.

Inside, where I wrote a personal message.

The back, with a lot of swirls. :-)

I have been so busy lately that I haven't had the time to think about all the details about my blogoversary. I think I just have to postpone it for a couple of days. I will come back a bit later. :-)

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day.

Birthdaycard for a man

I was asked if I could make a card for a man turning 40 years who loves trains.
I found some pictures of some locomotives on the internet and printed them in black and white.

I used my Bind-it-all-machine to make the spine somewhat more special. I haven't decided whether I like it or not.


The back.

I have decided to celebrate my blogoversary this year. Four years of blogging is worth celebrating, don't you think?
Stay tuned, I will come back later. :-)

Birthdaycard for boy - As a locomotive

I was asked if I could make a card looking as a train, a car, or something special. I knew I had seen something in a magazine I wanted to copy, but when I looked it up I didn't have all the gear needed to make that card. So, my card is much simpler and not as pretty as the card I wanted to copy. But I think it turned out well no matter what. :-)

I used a couple of photos of the boy turning 2 years and I printed the text on my printer.

I decorated the card by spraying some glimmer mist on a white cardstock. I found some stamps from Aud Design and stamped them here and there all over the front and back.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

These invitations I made for my son's confirmation. I wanted to make something simple but stylish. I have had this stamp of the dressed up mannequin for ages, and I bought it because I had seen it used on a confirmand card. And suddenly it was time for my own son to be a confirmand! 

Here's the card without the insert. 

This is the back of the invitation.

Here's the whole lot of invitaions. I made one extra so I can keep in my scrapbook.

Have a great day. I will enjoy the sunny weather. :-)

Boy's birthdaycard again

My oldest son wanted to go to a birthdayparty for a boy in his class. Then I had to make another birthdaycard for a boy in a hurry. I hope that I one day will have time to sit down and make a batch of birthdaycards for upcoming events. It seems like I'm always making cards in a hurry.

On the left side I have made a pocket to put money inside, or it could also be a gift certificate.

Really simple back. I like this paper, I think it's from My Minds Eye.

Today I will start making an album for one of the boys' teacher.
And I have to make a card for my brother in-law.
So, busy-busy-busy. Now it's time to take action.
