….I got last week from my dietitian. It’s no secret that I’m a big girl and I’ve been seeing my dietitian for over a year with….uhm….let’s just say some results. This summer she suggested that I get my steps in every day and send her a picture there of for motivation. So I did and I met my goal EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!! Her motivation model worked.
So now after summer’s over and daily life has set in again, we started up again and she gave me a present for all my hard work. It was a cup or a small bowl and I instantly knew what I wanted to make for it…..A paper flower or plant and here’s what I made:
A 3D Paper Cactus I found over at Lia Griffith. I only used one sheet of Leaf colored AC Cardstock and a little bit of Bubblegum colored AC Cardstock to make this. It is so easy to assemble and looks pretty real. Finally I wrapped some moss around the cactus and placed it into the cup/bowl.
The cup/bowl reads “you” in Danish and my dietitian want’s me to remember taking care of me when I look at the cup. It is so easy to forget yourself when the daily life hits and everyone else seems more important. So now this little cutie sits on my work table reminding me to look after me and be good and healthy to myself ❤ And I keep getting my steps in and sending her the results 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today and know that I would like to read what you think of this project ❤
…..from the Soundtrack of the Danish Summer. It has pretty much been the crappiest summer in history, but as I see it, not everything has been bad. The temperature has been very pleasant with a minimum of hot humid days and the sun has been know to shine on occasion 😀
This weather inspired me to make this Birthday card to a girlfriend of mine whose Birthday is here in August. It could easily have been made for a spring Birthday but that’s just my point – we have practically no seasons anymore. It’s either Spring or Fall – no more Summer or Winter.
The cute card is designed by Cyndy Gustashaw and is part of her Box Cards 2 Kit.
I used AC Cardstock in Lipgloss, Cricket, Robin’s Egg, Melon, Daffodil, Chestnut, Black and Bayou along with patterned paper from Doodlebug Design – Spring Time and Wood Grain patterned paper also from AC.
I inked all the edges with inkpads from Prima and used a white Silhouette Sketch Pen to write the sentiment (it says Congratulations in Danish) on the sign post.
Thanks for stopping by – hope you love the card as much as I do 🙂

….yeah! I just don’t don’t think any fairies live in these houses I made. You know that I’m a Halloween-addict and therefore I just had to transform the cute Fairyville SVG Bundle from Dreaming Tree into something dark and haunted (Muah-ha-ha-ha……)
First off is the Dragonfly Fairy House aka The Horrible Hobgoblin House
For this house I used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45 patterned paper “Halloween in Wonderland” and yellow vellum. I distressed and inked all the edges and embellished with different Halloween charms from my stash. I did alter the house design a bit, as I removed some of the cut outs to make it look a bit less cutecy 😉
Next is the Butterfly Fairy House aka The Wild Witchgoblin’s Crib:
For this house I also used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “An Erie Tale”. The edges are also distressed and inked and the house is embellished with more of my evil charms. Love that Pentagram ❤
Last but not least is the Honey Bee Fairy House aka The Hateful Hobgoblin Harry’s Habitation:
This house is also made from AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “Rare Oddities” and a few trinkets from my stash.
Here are some more pictures of the houses’ details and when they are lit up:
I really had fun making these houses and they make a great addition to my ever-growing, humongous Halloween Decor Collection.
Thanks for stopping by and remember how much I love to hear from you ❤
….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today 😀
The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – Jawsome but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:
I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody 😀
The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.
The card is a freebie from the Card Bundles – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font 😀
Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.
Here’s a little close-up:
Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forget to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card 😀
Soon Summer has ended and my favorite season of all – Fall – will be upon us in all its glorious colors and beautiful blue cool sky ❤
I must admit that I haven’t longed for Fall as much this year as the previous years cause Summer here in Denmark hasn’t been all that hot. Still when I look through my scrap papers and I find one with Fall colors, I just can’t wait ’till all the leaves turn and it again is time for hot cocoa and sweaters 😀
Today I want to show a Fall Easel Card. It’s made from two of Bird’s SVG files: The Easel Card 2 (found here ) and the Acorn Shaker Place Card from the Autumn Leaves SVG Collection (found here)
For this beautiful card I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Olive along with patterned papers from BoBunny – Autumn Song (one of my favorite collections). I “inked” the edges of the card with some Gold Metallic Lustre from DecoArt and used some different color sequins from my stash.
I followed the instructions on making the Acorn Shaker up to the point where you use 7 layers to make the shaker. I just added 7 more layers on top of the Acorn and used gold foil on the top layer. I also made a piece for writing by making an offset of the patterned paper piece and then I added two tiny jewels as stopper.
I’m definitely going to make more Shaker Cards in the future – this was fun!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something ❤
….yup you know it’s me 😀 It is my favorite Holiday of the year – bigger than Christmas. So I have to start early if I have to make it in time with all the new decorations to make. And today I also celebrate being a new Team Member on the SVG Attic Inspirations Team ❤
This time I want to show you the two adorable Bats on Stands designed by Jodi G. Warner for SVG Attic (get them here) as part of an amazing Halloween collection JGW Night Enchantments:
For this projects I used lots of Black AC Cardstock and a little Wine and Leaf. I also used Graphic 45’s “An Erie Tale” papers and black glitter paper (for the swirly parts of the bats) I inked all the edges of the black cardstock with a grey inkpad and used a dark brown inkpad for the patterned paper. I decided to make the bats a tad more scary by embellishing with some Halloween charms and adornments.
I really loved how easy these were to assemble. I originally intended to make only one of the bats but loved it so much, I had to make the other one too 😀
Here are some more pictures of the project:
I am really excited to be on the SVG Attic Team and look forward to making lots fun stuff in the future since they have all these amazing files to play with ❤
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something 😉
