O'Christmas time - Cards

Hello everyone... It's a sad day in the scrapbook community today. My beloved boss at the Flying Unicorns died yesterday. The whole creative team is really sad and in utter shock about this news. Our little scrapbook world has lost a wonderful and generous person and I'm happy to have know her for this past year as a Flying Unicorn Team Member. Rest in Peace sweet Alda Stevens.

Ok.. I wanted to share a card today too.. So I'm going to do that :) I have not one, but two cards today. They are very very similar and was one of my class cards this year. :)


This year I made a class using some of the older Maja Design papers. I added loads of frost embellishments like real pinecones :)


They are a tad diffrent. I've used different flowers and mini embellishements. I've used a couple of punches too :) And the picture is from two different collections.

The background paper is from the Maja Design collection - A gift for you. The picture is from the newest christmas collection. I've used snowflake paste on the egdes.


On this card I did some stamping and embossing as well.. just because this paper was more plain than the other one. :) I also added a bigger flower. But they are basically the same cards made by the same materials.

I'm joining these challenges with my card: 

Thank you for stopping by today! :) Hugs to you all :)

Finnabair Weekend - Class Project Part 4

Hi! It's the very first day of December and it's only 24 days until Christmas! How crazy is that. This year just flew past me.. So back today with my last share of my weekend with Finnabair - Anna Dabrowska at Bikuben the 11-13th of November making "The Book of Rust". I was really excited about this class and I was not disapointed.

I had so much fun making this. It has tons of layering and loads of gorgeous product from Prima and the Finnabair collection. I've used rust paste, micro beads and art stones. This is what I made out of that class.

 I used a big old book to make this. It's about 20cm x 15cm I think and I played alot with the rust paste and the metallique paints from Prima and the texture is awesome. So much to learn from Anna and her products!

There's so much microbeads, mica flakes and textures on this. It's so fabolous. I really liked  this project. If you are wondering who this lady is. It's in lady (I think a grand aunt) of Andrzej - Finnabair's husband. I really liked her face on this even though it's not her whole face.

This was the last project I did with Finnabair that weekend. And it was also the last class of the weekend. I did 4 out of 5 classes witch isn't to shabby I think.


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my Finnabair projects! :) Anna will be back at Bikuben next November 24-26th. I hope I get to play again! :D

Finnabair Weekend - Class Project Part 3

Hello lovelies! It's time to share my third project for the Finnabair weekend at Bikuben the 11-13th of November. This class project was the first I made and we learned all about the use of sculpture medium in the "Verdigris" class.

For this class we made a shadowbox canvas.. I have to say that I wasn't really happy with the way mine turned out.. and I wasn't able to "fix" it in a way I would like it.. but I'm going to share it anyways. :)

So the kit was so filled to the brim with loads of lovelyness. All kinds of metals, fabric, lace and flowers. I added them to my frame and this is what I came up with.
I don't know why I do not like it that much but I do think it's because of the face. I didn't get it right I think. I like all my layers and the textures, and it was a fun project to make and of course you learn so much. You really can't see that spoon that we where suppose to use as a focal point. This piece is sprayed with Primary Elements and painted with gesso and metallique paints. 


I love the Finnabair Mechanicals. They are so easy alterable and they looked so good on this project.

You can see part of the spoon I used on my canvas. I have to say it was a fun class and I liked the project, I'm just not happy with my project. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today :)

Mixed Media Notebook - Live Ustream Show - DT Scrapberry's

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you my little notebook I made with loads of Scrapberry's supplies and mixed media products Live on the Artists Live Ustream Channel. It's a christmassy project and it can be used for anything.

I made my book with Scrapberry's Christmas paper from last years line. These papers are called: "That Special time of the Year" line.

I also made a shakerbox in the top right corner and added loads of detail. If you would like to see the process of making this, please take a look at the video below.



I used a whole list of Scrapberry's products. If you would like to see the products used please go to my post on the Scrapberry's blog. 

A little closeup of the shaker box on the book that I've cut out from one of the diecuts in the diecut sheet found in the collection. All of the embellishements are also from Scrapberry's.

Thank you so much for stopping by me today and make sure to visit the Scrapberry's blog for more projects and fabolous inspiration.

Merry Christmas Card - DT Maya Road

Hello lovelies! Today it's my day over at the Maya Road blog and I'm all into making Christmas cards these days. So I've used some awesome Maya Road products and made a little something.

I've played with some papers from Studiolight but the dies, envelope and little button are all from Maya Road. The flowers are Wild Orchid.


I love using Maya Road envelopes on my cards. They give such great accent and layer. I broken out my sewing machine this time. I haven't used that in ages. Maybe because my room has been piling up with stuff lately and now my creativity is back and I enjoy my room more.


The title and snowflake are both awesome dies from Maya Road. They die-cut really well! I used a thin chipboard piece from quickutz on this. The chipboard is a bit thicker than cardstock.


I'm joining in these challenges with my christmas card:

Christmas Card

Hello everyone, taking a little brake from my Finnabair class posts (mainly because it's to dark to take any good photos) and showing you a Christmas card I made about a month ago.

So the photo I've used is one photo we got handed to us when I made this card. I was at a crop at Tingvoll, Norway. I love that crop! We had to make a christmas card and it had to be made after a sketch. I haven't shown this card to anyone yet. So it's your lucky day people! :)

I made a easel card with papers from Blue Fern Studios and Prima, basically some leftovers I had on my desk. The Chipboards both the circle and the "god jul" is both from SnipArt.

The flowers are from Papirdesign, Wild Orchid and Prima. The pinecones are real little pinecones I've picked in my backyard. I aslo added a bark star and punched out Holly leaves with a Marta Stewart Punch.

I covered the flowers with gesso and snowflake paste from Prima. Also added some blings from the "Sweet Peppermint" Collection.

The insides I've stamped with a christmas stamp from Papirdesign. And added a little sticker from the "Sweet Peppermint" collection.

I'm joining these challenges with my card:

Finnabair Weekend - Class Project Part 2

Back again today with another share from my classes with Finnabair - Anna Dabrowska at Bikuben the 11-13 of November. This class is actually the 3rd I took this weekend.. and this one was the one I wanted to go to the most and that was the "Heart of the Clock".. And I LOVED it.
The details on my clock is alot. Anna told me not to put so much flowers on it, because it would be a pain to paint later and that I would regret it.. but I don't. I even added extras.. The clock looks AMAZING. Oh yes, I'm quite happy with the way it looks.

Anna taught us fantastic techniques. We got to play with the gesso's, pastes and the acrylic paints and the opal magics. She teaches you step by step and everyone will get the project done. So over to my clock.. This is my class project from the "Heart of the Clock" class.

It took us quite along time to make this clock. The details are amazing on it and we used so much prima product and we got to play with the relics aswell.. I do adore the face in the flower cluster and the hand holding a rose is awesome aswell.

Isn't that an awesome detail with the Relics and Artifacts hand? I love that.. Didn't think I would.. but I do.. The Art Pebbels are so fun to work with aswell. 


The paint on the clock changes with the light but I painted with purples and golds. (Don't remember the colors.)

Thank you soo much for joining me today and I'd love to hear what you think of my clock!
I would like to stress out that this is Finnabair's designs and products and I learned so much! :)

Finnabair weekend - Class project part 1

So the weekend of 11-13th of November I took a bunch of Finnabair classes and I enjoyed them so muuuch! I will share so photos from our classes and the project I made. I would like to stress out this is Finnabair's style and the classes are ABSOLUTLY amazing to take part in and you learn soo much. I will split my weekend into 4 seperate post so there will be 3 more like this.


I will start with the class that actually was my second class.. I joined the layers of dreams on Saturday morning. I love making layouts and I was really happy with my result. Usually I am a bit shy and scared to mess things up, but this time I just went with the flow. :) 


This is what I made of the class. I added a black frame to my project and it looks amazing and I can hang it on my wall now. :) 

The frame of course Prima and all the embellishments are also Prima. The photo I used I've used before on a layout, but I think it's just such a fun photo so I just had to use it. 

This rusted elements are sooo cool, I really like the look on them. We just a lot of the art stones as well and splatted with gesso and Colorarte Primary elements. 

Look at all my layers.. It's no way to put this in an album. We used loads of lace, papers and metal embellishment. We painted everything with gesso and misted primary elements on top. Then we added those rusted elements. 

The texture is amazing! We added art stones in both sizes and painted them into our project. I love the color palette with the purples and teals. 



I see that the photo I used comes out really blury in this photo. But it's really not. But you get to see the layers and all the details in the layout and of course all the splatteres we did. It was such a fun class to attend. If you have the chance to go and learn to use Finnabair projects I would highly recommend you doing so! :) 

Thank you so much for your visit today! :)

Autumn Cards - DT Scrapberry's

Good morning everyone! Today I'm back with a couple of cards I made for Scrapberry's this month. I'm getting my mojo back slow and steady and I'm seriously loving it! Tomorrow I'm leaving for a crop, hanging out with awesome ladies and I can't wait. It's going to be a blast! But enough about that.. The cards! Let's start with my moustachy one :)

So on my cards I've used the same products but they turned out slightly different anyways. I've used loads of Scrapberry's products and the papers here are from the "Egde of Town" collection and I've used the 6x6" Paper pack.

I cut out strips of paper and glued them on top of eachother, embellished with Scrapberry's chipboard and cork stickers. Also added a couple of translucent leaves and a air ballon on top. The strings are twine and wire thread from Prima.

After finishing with the embellishment, I splashed on top with glimmer glam - Stiletto and White dylusions ink.

Okey.. next card! :D

Like I said in the start the cards are quite similar, this is a horizontal card with some of the same embellishements. Love how they match :)

I'm joining in these challenges with my cards:




Allright! That's what I had to share today! For more projects with Scrapberry's products head on over to their blog! :) Thanks for stopping by! :)
