Hello Spring

Hello to Spring…..Hello to you and Happy Sunday!

Today I want to show some Easter and Spring projects that I made this last week. Who isn’t dying to get out all their Easter and Spring decor right about now and start decorating? I know I’m soooo ready for Spring and Easter always marks the transition from Winter to Spring for me. So I’ve been busy creating.

First of I want to show the cute Spring Wreath from SnapDragon Snippets that I made using the Flat 3D Daisy instead of the original flower – just to make it more dimensional.


I used AC Cardstock in Lollypop, Cotton Candy, Grass, Oregano, Melon and Sunflower and inked all the edges with Prima Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads. Then I used a black Sharpie to draw the small dot on the centers of the flowers. Finally I tied a pink dottet ribbon on top and that’s it. Very very easy to make – and it’s so Spring-y.


Next I made the small and adorable 3D Chick Box that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (it is a SVG Attic file though)


Isn’t he cute?

I used AC Cardstock in Canary, Dandelion, Caramel, Chocolate and Black and for the wings I used Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock in a light yellow.

I inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads and mounted the wings with yellow heart shaped eyelets. Finally I dotted the little eye with a white Sharpie.

Love this little fellow to bits – and it’s a box that you can put treats in!

Last but not least I made an Easter Card:


This adorable and fun card is the Bunny Shaker Window Card from SnapDragon Snippets (also available in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #189097)

For this baby I used AC Cardstock in White, Black, Carrot, Sunflower, Grass, Oregano and Peony and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads. I used a piece of Acetate from Crafter’s Companion as window and filled it with Skittles. Now who wouldn’t love to get a card like this one?

And there you have it – the Easter/Spring projects I’ve been fiddling with this last week and believe me – I ain’t done yet!

Thanks for joining me today – hope to see lots of Easter and Spring crafting goodies from you guys!

Egg-stravagant Baskets……

…..and a Card!

So glad you decided to come join me today, as I want to show you the most darling little Easter Egg Baskets I made…..and a card 😀

All of these baskets are designed by the very talented Tracey Moon Rushton of Idea Closet and can be purchased at My Scrap Chick .

Let’s start off with the smallest – the Chocolate Egg Basket Single:


Next is the Chocolate Egg Basket Double that holds two eggs:


And the largest of the baskets, the Chocolate Egg Basket 4 pack that holds 4 eggs:


For my versions of the baskets, I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden”.

I cut out extra panels for the inside of the baskets and decorated them with various flowers from Prima and chipboard tags also from Graphic 45.

Finally I put in plastic eggs that I decorated with paper borders and Prima flowers + small gems as flower centers, since I haven’t gotten to buying any eggs for them yet 😮

The baskets also comes in a handy bundle if you decide to get all three baskets at once.

I also made a card to go with either of the baskets if you choose to give them away (I know I will) It’s one of the new gorgeous cards from My Scrap Chick – the Classic Tall Frame Card:


I knew exactly how I wanted to make this card, the minute I saw it 🙂

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Black along with patterned paper from Graphic45’s “Secret Garden”. All edges are inked with Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads in Pastel Green.

I decorated with various Prima flowers like with the baskets and used one of the cute cards in the stack as picture. The top panel is adhered with round glue dots for dimension.

That was all for now – feels like I’m not quite done with Easter just yet 😉 Stay tuned for more……


Happy Birthday Mom!

My Mom’s birthday is tomorrow and I just want to show you what I made for her (we celebrated today so now it’s ok for me to show you 😀 )

Dreaming Tree recently released the Cupid Crush Bundle and this is where you’ll find the Love Blossom Pop Up Card. DSC_0004

I did alter my version a bit – leaving out some of all the hearts. I also added three flowers from the Apple Blossom Lantern,  also from Dreaming Tree, to the front of the card.

I made the card itself from a piece of Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper. Then I added some white pearl paper that I embossed with a Tuscan Tile pattern.

The flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Shrimp and the leaves are in Grass. Then I added some white pearls along with some gold sequins, Doodlebug jewels and a gold embellishment I happened to have in my stash.

The card is a pop up card and here’s a look of the inside of the card:


It was this gorgeous lush flower that sold this card to me!

I made it from vellum that I inked with Prima chalk ink. The flower center is made from green vellum and the leaves are AC Cardstock in Grass and Key Lime.

So that was the card.

I also made her a flower decoration:


This is the Mothers’s Day Bon Bon Bouquet again from Dreaming Tree.

I changed out the heart on the front with a Peony flower from the Peony Gift Box also a Dreaming Tree design.

The box is made from AC Cardstock in White and decorated with panels made from Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper.

The Peony is made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Cotton Candy with leaves in Leaf and the center is Banana.

The Bon Bon Flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud, Shrimp, Cotton Candy, Latté and Robin’s Egg and the leaves and tendrils are made from Leaf and Mint.

All edges are inked with Prima Chalk ink.

I’m very sure my Mom loved it – she loves everything that I make her 😀

Happy 69’th Birthday tomorrow Mom!




A Toast To Your New Year

Hello and thanks for joining me today.

I just want to show you the card I made for my friends Birthday (it’s today: Happy Birthday Sys!)

Usually I don’t want to make Christmas themed cards for people who has Birthday around Christmas or New Year themed cards for those, who’s Birthday is close to the New Year, because I think it important that their Birthday be celebrated like everyone else’s. But in this case I made an exception.


This card is from the JGW New Years Celebration kit and I saw two meanings in the sentiment – One for toasting in the New Year and one for toasting in somebody’s new year…..a Happy Birthday.

I made the card in Black and White AC Cardstock along with gold pearl paper, gold and silver AC POW glitter paper and gold and silver adhesive foil from Silhouette. Then I simply added some small bubble gems from Queen & Co. and Voila!

 I gave my friend this card along with a bottle of bubbly Asti Spumante so she has something to toast in the New Year and her new year 🙂

Thanks for joining me today – please come back tomorrow where I’ll show you some of my New Years Eve decorations I just made. Oh and please don’t forget to write me a little comment 😉

You’ve Been Booed….

Hello 🙂

Today I’m here with a quick post to show you the fun I had yesterday with one of the cute Halloween cards from the SDS Halloween Cards kit – the Boo Ghost Card


I made the card with AC Cardstock and “Tricky” patterned paper from Authentique.

Now this card is so cute as it is but I wanted to add a little extra detail:


Do you see it? I know it’s a bit hard to see on the picture, but I added some colored Chibitronics LED lights behind the Boo banner that turns on by pushing the pumpkin.

Now this card is exactly how I want it 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today – please let me know what you think 🙂

Aged to Perfection

Hello – here to show you a gift I made for my girlfriend and her husband.

She turnes 50 and he turned 60 this fall and we were invited to celebrate both.


So what do you make for such a couple? Well SVG Attic had the answer:


The Aged to Perfection kit contains among others this Wine Cask Gift Box and Vintage Card that I found to be perfect for the occasion.

I made the barrel in AC Cardstock and patterned paper from Simple Stories and added Jodi’s grapes from the JGW Communion of Faith kit. Those grapes are a bit time consuming but once you get the idea of how they go together, it’s just easy peasy.


The Vintage Card is also made from AC Cardstock and Simple Stories patterned paper. I quadrupled the numbers and added some rosegold foil for some shine. I also dotted the letters and stars with a white Sharpie.



The gift was money and I added a small pouch inside the card for them. Then I took some shredded wood and filled up the barrel along with some candies.


And they loved it 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget to write me a little something on your way out 🙂

Who is Who?

Today I want to share with you some nametags/ place cards I made for my youngest son’s school.


I’m known for not keeping my mouth shut and one day I couldn’t help myself commenting on how boring the nametags were. The Teachers reaction: Well….you’re creative….why don’t you make some for us? 😀 Challenge accepted.




I found the cute Pencil Card in the JGW Back 2 School Kit and simply downsized it a bit (75%) and cut to slits in the backside for a small piece of cardstock to fit for the name. I did this so the tag/card can be used for more than one student.

I used AC Cardstock in Melon, Vanilla, Charcoal, Grapefruit, Ash and White and let my Silhouette do all the work for me. All I had to do was assemble the card/tag.

Happily it was a succes and they loved it. No more boring white nametags in an otherwise colorful school.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to write me a little something – you know I love it ❤

Come Rain or Come Shine……

…..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 🙂

Dun Dun Dun Dun …….

….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 😀

Acorn Shaker

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 ❤
