Lotus #143

New challenge is up over at LOTUS Paperie. This weeks challenge is to use note paper. I really LOVED this challenge, and had a blast making my LO. Picture of my two boys relaxing and reading in the shade of the walnut tree - could it be any better? :)

This weeks word up over at One Little Word: "OPEN". A wonderful word. Run over to the OLW-blog and read Karlas heartfelt words and see all the beautiful LOs made by the OLW-girls.
Join the fun and link up your LO for your chance to win
Karlas awesome "Journals 3 ways" online class and the beautiful september kit by The Paper Niche.
Finally I feel like I am back to my good ol' self again. As you know I have been ill allmost all september (THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SWEET MESSAGES AND THOUGHTS!! - much appreciated!!) I have been tired, sad, lonely and felt no good at all.... SO I grabbed the chance to make this note to myself. There are SO many beautiful, wonderful, amazing things in my life - I just need to open my heart and my mind and see and feel all the beauty. :)
So for my blogday over at my Stamp BOX-blog I made this little gift card-BOX. This is a perfect little gift for some friends or neighbors, to remind them how much they mean to me - that I care and love them even if days are busy, and we have less time meet and chat and just relax - like in the wonderful long summerdays.
If you want to know more about how I made this cute, recycled box-card, please visit my Stamp BOX blog.

Fall is definitive here, and I enjoy the colors, the crisp air and the indoor time that allows me to create and play with my stamps and my scrapbooking stash.
Today I have a blogpost up at my Stamp BOX blog . Please come over and have a closer look at my fall creations :)
I had so much fun creating this card and the LO about my little girl. She loves all things beautiful in the nature, and every day she shows me something she finds beautiful. "mom! Look at this color, isn't it beautiful!" or " mom, the raindrops on the trees looks like silver... isn't it beautiful!" This little girl teaches me to enjoy, and to see the nature all over again - wonderful!

have a great day you all!

Hi all!

Hi you all, my dear, sweet blog-friends. Thanks for all your sweet comments. MUCH APPRECIATED!!
Finally I'm back here on my blog. I have been ill for a couple of weeks (allmost three actually).
I got a really bad flu that knocked me out for a while.
But finally I fel a bit better, and things starts to get back on track again. :)

Well allthough I have not been well I have not been in bed all know life is still happening around here, and a mother have to do what a mother have to do. :)
SO the other day I made this little wallet-card for a friend of Iver.
I had so much fun making it, using papers from Cosmo Cricket "the Boyfriend" collection and my sewing machine. :)

I also started this fun little project using what I had around the house.

-some empty toilet-paper rolls, some cloth-tags a mini mini file folder, a little piece of cardboard and some of my all time favourite Cosmo Cricket papers from the Boyfriend collection.

I made a mini album with pictures from Ivers 11th birthday. He celebrated it twice this year, but I made this album from his actual birthday july 17th.

It isn't allways fun to have birthday in the midde of the summer vacation. All friends are away, and maybe you spend the day in the backseat of a car.... But this year was different for Iver. We were at home and he got a few friends over for a party. We celebrated all day long. I think he must have had the best day ever. He was so, so happy all day. So I made this album for him to remember his 11th birthday. :)

This is some of the things I've been workin on lately.
I also work on some Christmas-projects and a brand NEW christmas collection for 3ndyPapir (!!) so stay tuned :) :)

my Stamp BOX blog hop :) :)

Welcome to the ABC Blog Hop with myStamp BOX today!
You should have arrived from Tracey's blog.
If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop today, the myStamp BOX blog.
Here is the ABC Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:
For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win one of TWO brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then come back to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win!
Have fun!
I have created three little projects using my favourite mSB-alpha stamp " rustik outlines". As many of you know I LOVE types, fonts and alphas, so this bloghop went straight into my heart - and I had a blast making my LOs and card.
I wanted to use my alphas in a "new" way, and decided to make backgrounds.
On my card and on the school-LO I stamped with acrylic paint. The acrylic paint makes a fun texture, and the stamped images appear a bit messy. I loved that look for my background on this simple LO and the card. On the "for You" card I also sprayed the background with glimmer
mist to make it sparkle. :)

On this LO about my dear boy I also used the "rustic outlines" alpha as a background, but this time the letters are put together to words. Words about things that matters to this boy @ the age of 13
I made the background using glimmer mist and the negative piece of a alpha-chipboard package, I gently sprayed the glimmermist over the "mask" to make the shape of the larger letters appear just a little bit darker than the cardstock.
Then I stamped the words on top of this.

Hope you enjoy the bloghop and find LOTS of inspiration :)
You can find all the awesome mSB-alphabets here. They are all so cool and versatile, and affordable too.
Now make sure you find your way over to JOLENEs blog to continue the bloghop. :)
Happy creating.
*the bloghop starts at 12 pm (noon) EST (1pm Atlantic; 12pm EST, 11am Central Standard, 10am Mountain; 5pm Central European)*
