My Minds Eye ~ Desk-Organizer & Tin

Friends er en av mine favoritt tv-serier, og jeg har alle på video/dvd :) Men har ikke lengre plass i hylla til boksene de kom i! Først skulle de brennes i peisen.. men så kom jeg på en flott idé! ... Ja det hender av og til *hehe* Jeg trengte noe å ha stempeltrykk som er ferdigmalte oppi, slik at de er lett tilgjengelige på arbeidsbordet mitt. Og så ble det en boks i samme stil, for å ha penner og slikt oppi!
Some of my Friends dvd's came in boxes, wich I now have no room for on my shelves - and they almost became wood for the fire.. But then came a bright idea - as almost rarely happens... *lol* To make a desk organizer to store my painted stamp-motifs in, easy to access on my desk. And a tin to have my pens and whatnots in the same style as well :)

The challenge at Arty Girlz this time around is #66 - Home Art. To make a project that can be displayed in your home. This would do I think, as it's not only useful but pretty to look at :)

I used strong double(?)glued tape to attatch the boxes together. Then I painted the tops with Li'l Davis 'Creamsicle' Scrapbook Shades. I next cut some orange n yellow cardstock and fitted to the insides of the boxes. Again with tape. I used decoupage finish on the edges to make it smooth and sealed. Also, to apply Cat's Eye Chalk on the edges I needed to first apply decoupage, or it would have come off the otherwise smooth glossy surface. I fitted some nice patterned paper to the boxes, the front I had some trouble with to fit into the cuttlebug! But it pushed through. I needed a lovely frame to add a stamp-motif on the back, peeking out :)
I also roughed up the edges with sandpaper when the decoupage coat was dry - wich only takes 10-15 minutes.
and this is the back of the finished desk-organizer-box :)When I was done, I had some leftover papers, and made this - my mum brought me this tin. And it looks lovely next to the box on my table!
Stamps/Image: Penny Black - Pink toes.
Paper: Misc cardstock. My Mind's Eye - Bohemia 'Barefoot Beautiful Butterfly/Brown', MME - Kaleidoscope 'Friends Dots/Blue Paper', and MME - Magnolia 'Sundance Celebrate Flowers/Lime.
Embellishments: Adornit ribbon, and the looped one I'm not sure of. I've used the Cuttlebug and cut out the frame with the Spellbinder Nestabilities scalloped ovals.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Ha ei fin romjul og et riktig godt nytt år alle sammen!!!

De siste julekortene for i år... tror jeg ;) Kan jo hende det blir laget noen til med restepapirene! Ble veldig fornøyd med disse, er så glad i Penny Black pinnsvinene mine - så søte! :)These are the last christmas cards this year - I think! There's lots of scrap paper leftover ;)
A joyful christmas and a happy New year to all who stop by my blog :)

I think the last card fits for the challenge at ABC challenges! Lots of underneath going on, layers upon layers: We want you to interpret underneath however you choose, it can be images/objects underneath things, or images hidden underneath tags etc. Let your imagination go wild.

Stamps/Image: The hedgehogs are from Penny Black clearstamp sets - Christmas Critters, & Critter Party. The boy 'Jubelgutt' is from Toves Design Stempler. The 'birdie' is from Scrapmagasinet - Valentine Clearstamps. Christmas text stamps is from 'Julehilsner' by Ksenia Sazonova. Except the 'God Jul' text, a Panduro Hobby stamp.
Paper: The brown papertag is from 3ndypapir 'Vinter merkelapper'. Misc Bazzill cardstock and scrap paper. Basic Grey - Blitzen 'Jack Frost', BG - Perhaps 'Elsa', BG - Skate Shoppe 'grind'. And 'Christmas snowflakes glitter paper' from K&C.
Embellishments: Prima flowers, mm and wassail brads, and misc. ribbons, and I've used the Cuttlebug and embossed with the 'Snowflakes' folder.

More christmas Cards!

Enda flere julekort :) CuteCard Thursday's siste challenge er en helt åpen theme #41. Så begge disse passer ;) Det nederste kortet lagde jeg til fadderbarnet mitt i Israel, (SOS-barnebyer) så det fikk en litt mer 'barnslig' touch!
CuteCard Thursday's Challenge #41. is an open theme - anything goes. So either one of theese then :)

The card below I've made for Daniel, a child in Israel that I sponsor through SOS Children's Villages.

Stamps/Image: Top card has a Rachelle A. Miller stamp - Simon & Lola. The snowman on the red card I've cut out from a Panduro sheet - Tilda Papercraft collection.
Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey - Perhaps 'Kisa', 'Christmas snowflakes glitter paper' from K&C. And Paper Pizazz 'Ivory Sprigs'.
Embellishments: The star and xmas tree beltloops are from the new QuicKutz - Deck the Halls CookieCutter Exclusive Set. The heart is also from QK.

Brente fingre & Jubelgutt-Card!

Au au! Brant meg da jeg tok ut ostesmørbrødene fra ovnen i går! holdt hånden under kaldvann i en halvtime etterpå og satt lenge med en kald klut, men det blir to store blemmer fordet :( Surt at det var på venstre tommel og pekefinger - og akkurat på der jeg trenger dem for å rulle røyk og lage kort!!! *lol* ;) Det går jo på ett vis, men litt knøvlete og dobbelt så lang tid... men pussig nok er det akkurat nå jeg er i siget! Lagd flere kort og har andre prosjekter på lur :)

Her er ett kort til denne ukens challenge på Cupcake Craft bloggen: Inspirasjon fra hjemmet - og jeg valgte da skjerfene mine - herlige fargerike skjerf :) Favoritten er et rødt, brunt og oransje skjerf jeg kjøpte i Tromsø for noen år siden.


Ouch! Burnt my left thumb and the one next to it (indexfinger?!) yesterday. But the cards keep coming anyway, even if it takes a bit longer - can't bend the long finger yet - so it gets a bit messier too :)

This weeks challenge at Cupcake Craft Ch., is 'Inspiration From Home'. Find anything in your home and be inspired by it. The colours, the design anything... And I've been inspired by all my scarfs! Colors is the key! Wearing a black jacket as I do, I can add color with my lovely warm colourful n cosy scarfs :)

Stamps/Image: The boy 'Jubelgutt' is from Toves Design Stempler. And 'birdie' from Scrapmagasinet - Valentine Clearstamps. Christmas text stamp is from 'Julehilsner' by Ksenia Sazonova. The calender is All Kinds of Happy - Snag'em Stamps Calendar.
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, BG - Perhaps 'Kisa', giftwrapping paper (the red one)
Embellishments: QK heart, MM brads.

Ble en litt 'vintage feeling' på dette kortet - disse wild asparagus mønsterarkene er så nydelige!
Og challengen hos Cupcake Craft var Challenge 16 - Vintage. Kortet er laget etter denne flotte skissen til MichelleO.

WOJ card ~ Til en liten venn :)

Fikk ikke sendt inn dette kortet til forrige WOJ challengen, som var ei skisse, men denne uken har A spoon full of sugar en flott challenge som passer perfekt! ;) #25. er å lage et kort til et barn. Didn't get to send this card in for the last WOJ challenge, but #25. at A spoon full of sugar, wich is A card for a kid - goes well with this one too :)

Stamps/Image: Whiff of Joy, Charlie - building snowman. Text-stamps: Big one from Kreativ Hobby, the other is unknown to me.
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, and pattern papers are unknown, exept for the 'ric-rac' one, wich is from Chatterbox.
Embellishments: Panduro Hobby brads. And in the inner circle of 'KLEM', I've used glossy accents from Ranger - an excellent versatile medium.

Milda Matilda is smiling! :)

Jeg elsker Magnolia og Hänglene mine, men ofte så syns jeg ansiktene blir alltfor kjedelige.. Og dette kortet trengte ett smiiil! :) Denne uken har Cute card Thursday en challenge, #36, der man skal bruke Rødt + Grønt! Jeg tittet først på DT kortene for å se hvordan de hadde løst denne, og siden man kan bruke flere enn kun de to fargene, så lagde jeg et skikkelig fargerikt kort :)
I thought this magnolia-card called for a BIG smile :) The Cute card Thursday blog challenge this week is # 36: Use Red + Green on your card.

On this card: I've used bazzill and unknown papers - the one with the watering-can is from a shop called 'Nille'.
The stamp is from Magnolia 'Milda Matilda'. I also used Quickutz shapes, and the alphabet is Chemistry. (The text reads: Thanks)

Mye engler og alver for tiden... sitatet over er forresten fra Peter Pan ;) Cute card Thursday har en challenge gående #35, med en Fairie + Angels theme. Så jeg hentet frem et av stempeltrykkene mine, og printet ut en kjekk 'engel' fra webben :)

Teenage card - Vroooom!

Dette kortet er ganske typisk guttekort, men ei og annen jente liker det vel også? Jeg synes det ble kjempekult! :) Passet til denne challengen: "Challenge 7 - Card for a Teenager" hos Lili of the Valley, en challenge blogg jeg nylig fant - hvor man kan bruke hvilke stempler/bilder man vil, og det behøver ikke være et kort eller lo. Kjekt med noen slike også ;) Dette kortet ble gitt bort som konfirmasjonskort, og det passer jo bra som det :)

The #7. challenge on this new blog I found, Lili of the Valley - is to make a card for a teenager. And this is certainly not for weakhearted grandmas or small innocent children, but suits both a teenage boy, or a frisky 'dude' or 'chick'.... ;)

On this card...
Stamps/Images: Norwegian textstamp (wich translates to: best wishes for the day and the future) from Kreativ Hobby, and the hottie is a pic from somwhere on the web (?) printed on white bazzill.
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, and 'Reaction' a Crate Paper from the Static Collection - I LOVE theese!
Embellishments: Ì kan' déé from Pebbles Inc have great twine! I've used my silentsetter to make holes, then I sew with the twine, added an chinese coin (?) good luck charm - and made a knot :)

CupCake - Sarah Kay Card

Dette kortet er inspirert av bildet under, til challengen hos Cupcake Craft Ch. #12. Stempeltrykket er et Sarah Kay ved navn Precious Moment. Ellers se nederst i innlegget :)
Inspirasjonsbildet / Here is the inspiration photo:
And here's one of the latest cards I've made. For the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. My first entry at this cute page! Challenge 12 - Inspiration.
Stamps: Sarah Kay - Precious Moment, Kanji - chinese signs.
Paper: Bazzill, Making Memories - Noteworthy journaling.
Ribbon: From Scrappers Choice (made of paper).

Gran Canaria - Fotos!

Endelig litt blogging igjen ;) Har ikke hatt ork å legge inn kort, å skrive innlegg den siste tiden etter jeg kom hjem fra syden. Faktisk var det nesten sånn at jeg trengte ferie ETTER ferien!! Faren min har langt fremskreden altzheimers, så vi hadde det litt slitsomt, og i tillegg er hverken moren min sin eller min egen helse å skryte av ;) Men vi hadde det fint alikevel, leste ut iallefall 8 bøker, bla. Dorothy Koomson - Kjærligheten til et barn - Nyyydelig bok! :)
Jeg og moren min malte masse fine stempletrykk, og jeg har laget noen kort etter jeg kom hjem, som jeg skal legge ut snart :)

Vi fartet litt rundt omkring, men mest de siste to ukene. Mamma trådde over og skadet foten så mye at hun måtte gå med krykker de to første ukene! Det var litt kjipt, for vi kom oss aldri til Las Palmas, og jeg som hadde så lyst å vise mamma rundt der! Vakker by. Spesielt den gamle bydelen :) Hadde også planlagt den store øyturen, med buss innover øya, se guanchenes huler og gå på markedet i Teror. Og vi skulle se sandyner i Maspalomas og kameler, som heller ikke ble noe av.. Lite shopping ble det jo - pappa er ikke veldig tålmodig akkurat, men si meg et mannfolk som vil shoppe? *lol* Neste gang kansje.


Vi fikk sett Palmitos Park iallefall, dit har jeg hatt lyst å vært hver gang jeg har vært der nede. I fjor brant dyreparken ned til grunnen, og det er helt fantastisk at de har bygd den opp igjen så fort! Og det er utrolig pent der - absolutt en opplevelse verdt å få med seg :) Tok massevis av bilder denne gangen - sånn ca. 800 bilder! - her er noen 'få'! Favorittbildet mitt er av surikattene - elsker de små tassene!! :)


Sydenbilder sept-oktober08



I'm baaa-ack!!! ;) Haven't kept up my blog after I got home from Gran Canaria, been somewhat pre-occupied with other stuff.. But I have made some cards wich I'll post later on! :) Click on the pic of my mum to go my photo-album of our vacation - there are some great shots of suricats (?), a beautiful orchid and a butterfly, a cuddly orangutang, gruesome phyton snake mm. It wasn't easy I tell you.. One great shot equals 10 bad ones! ;)

Sarah Kay box!

Moren min kom hjem igår fra Tromsø (-> se tidligere innlegg Baby kort), og fikk denne i gave fra meg :) Det er en metallboks som det har vært te oppi, veldig flott til å ha småtterier i, og hun likte den kjempegodt :)
Og den passet fint til denne utfordringen hos
Sarah Kay Challenges #11. Trio of papers! Og etter litt blogghopping i dag, så fant jeg denne blogcandyen hos BevsCrafts Blog! Nydelig stempel og stæsj :)


My mum came home from her trip to Tromsø yesterday and was very happy to get this box I've made for her, out of an english tea tin-box. I've used an Sarah Kay stamp, and three matching papers, so it was perfect for the Sarah Kay Challenges #11. Trio of papers!

The box: Sarah Kay stamp-motif 'Sarah on the farm'. Painted with H2O, Tim Holtz - distress Ink, and aquarelle.
Papers are Basic Grey Stella Ruby collection - Springtime soiree & Garden Party. DCWV Once upon a time collection - Enchanted Paisley.
Have also used decoupage glue, sandpaper, QK goosebumpz circles, Spellbinder nestabilities scalloped oval dies, & Retro flowers Punches.

Ooooh! Go check out this Great Whiff of Joy candy at
Bev's blog! :)

Do you have music on your blog?

Oh, I do SO wish people would set their musicplayers on their blogs to pause! - it's really annoying to suddenly have a kaos of sounds coming at you from several different sites, and you have no idea where.. I often play music myself when I'm surfing, so you can see it's annoying? Many times, more than not, I close the page as soon as I can, without looking at the page - especially if the musicplayer is nowhere to be seen!

Before I got my new (and much faster) computer, I actually experienced that the internet 'froze up' cause' of too many applications/gadgets on blogs.. no commands working, so I needed to shut down and start up again - now, THAT'S annoying!
So this is a plea - Please set the player to pause if possible! And if not, please remove it for the benefit of the ones who want to see your creations! :)

Lovely Blogcandies:
On a happier note: If you love High Hopes rubbers, Nikki has a great blogcandy on her blog Bunny-Zoes, she's hit 20 thousand visitors! go check it out :)
Also Crissy's Art & Heart blog has super High Hopes candy to give away!

And also Whiff of Joy blog candy up for graps at ScrapBitz, Suzanne's blog - who's a DT for Whiff of Joy, and it says all of the DT's will offer up blogcandies! So go check out the candy :)
She wants to know your favourite movies - and here's my line: MY fave movie though .. wich is OH so many! Lost Boys, Matrix, The Neverending Story, Back to the Future, Mad Max, LOTR, E.T ++ But an alltime fave number one is Dirty Dancing :) The moment when Patrick says "Nobody puts Baby in the corner".. Ooooh! My first crush ;) seen it a hundred+ times *lol*

...An english only blogentry for once, my thoughts were somehow thought in english and not norwegian today, and I'm just banking on people knowing their school-english well enough *lol* ;)

Nytt babykort! Pink :)

Challengen hos Cutecard Thursday # 26. var å lage et rooosa kort :) Men jeg rekker nok ikke fristen :( Internettet krasja totalt ikveld, har ikke kommet meg inn på bloggen min, bare innlogging funker, men ikke å lage nytt innlegg!
Nok et babykort, med Panduro's Tilda baby stempel og rundt tekststempel fra Kreativ Hobby, :)
The challenge at Cutecard Thursday this time was to make a really pink card. I did but haven't gotten into my blog today - totally crashdown :( Well, it will be a sweet card for someone :)
The card: Panduro Tilda - baby stamp, Kreativ Hobby txt stamp, Noteworthy paper, bazzill, Prima painterly petals, QK leaf.

Scrappekjøkkenet mitt & Baby kort :)


Lenge siden jeg postet noe her nå :) Har vært så opptatt med å få iorden scrappekjøkkenet mitt, det var så rotete at jeg begyndte å mistrives..
Fant jo ikke frem i alle esker og duppeditter! ;) Men nå er det perfekt orden! Eller... *hehe* :) Ser litt rotete ut enda kansje, men hovedsaken er at jeg finner det jeg trenger!
På bildet under har jeg funnet på noe kjempesmart til stemplene mine! Jeg har jo de fleste EZ-monterte i sorte permer (attmed arkene på bilde 3), men inni skapet her ser du sånne gjennomsiktige esker som har vært havreflarn og sjokoladeflarn oppi! De passet fint til alle clearstemplene og stempelsett som ellers tok opp utrolig mye plass liggende her og der, hengende på vegger osv. -- Tips til Scrappemania - Mitt scrappeparadis :) Utfordringen i bloggen der er nettopp å komme med oppbevaringsløsninger og tips til scrapperom, så det passet utmerket :)
Been some time since my last post, but organizing my scrappingkitchen took more time than I thought :) It was long overdue - it had begun to be difficult to find stuff I needed - and still, after hours and hours of work - it still is a messy scraproom - but cozy :)


Jeg lagde et søtt baby kort i går - til mitt nye søskenbarn! Min onkel Johnny, som bor i tromsø, og hans kone Marifel fikk en skjønn liten gutt i helga! Moren min skal reise oppover i natt med hurtigruta, og da må hun jo ha med seg et fint hjemmelaget kort sammens med gaven de får! :)
And I've even made a card yesterday! For my new cousin in Tromsø :) My uncle Johnny and his wife Marifel had a cute little baby boy last weekend, and my mum is going to visit them so ofcourse she needs a homemade card to bring along with the gift!

The card: Panduro Tilda - baby stamp, Noteworthy paper, bazzill, Prima flowers, mesh ++

Endelig!!! New PC (again)!

Blogcandy alert! Kreativ Hobby har en blogcandy med julestempler på bloggen sin! Og den går ut fredag 29. august kl 1200! Nydelige vinterstempler :)

Så deilig å få 'tilbake dataen' :) Hadde jo kjøpt meg ny PC (se her), men etter en tids bruk fant broren min ut at det ikke var tv-utgang på den! Og det er jo en nødvendighet ;) *lol* Så han fant en annen (1000kr dyrere..) som jeg kjøpte isteden. Er så kjekt med Elkjøps garanti - levere tilbake innen 30 dager, no problem! :) Denne PC'en er også flott, om enn kjempestort kabinett i forhold til den bittelille HP maskinen. Og denne er visstnok enda kraftigere, Packard Bell iMedia PC - 500 GB, NVidia skjermkort (høres flott ut!) og AMD tricore phenom prosessor... (gresk for meg!) Men det som imponerte meg er at den tar minnekortet til kameraet mitt (slipper å putte det i printeren da) og det er hele 6 USB utganger!!! Så jeg kan plugge i alt mulig :) Og det 'viktigste' en tv-utgang.

Endelig er alt av filer lagt inn på nytt, og den møysommelige prosessen med å finne alle småprogrammene jeg liker å bruke, rundtom på nett er over *puh*.. Nå kan jeg bare kose meg igjen :)

Had to switch computers with this one, a Packard Bell iMedia PC, as the Hewlett Packard I bought recently, didn't have a tv-output (?), to watch films etc. via the pc through the tv :) This one is also a 500GB PC, but it has a better processor and lots of USB outputs!

The past week or so I haven't had access to my VERY important folders, with photos, pics and gadgets.. The computer I've been working on has felt absolutely naked! ;)

Ribbon frenzy!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Bloggens #10 er: Ribbons. Altså Bånd - og siden jeg hadde en del små bånd som jeg har tatt vare på fra diverse bluser og t-shirts kjøpt på lindex oa. steder, så tenkte jeg å prøve noe nytt - istedenfor ett enkelt bånd tversover kortet som vanlig... ;)
Til dette kortet brukte jeg 22 små bånd biter! Har sett kort og album der dette har vært gjort, men aldri prøvd det - og tror nok ikke jeg orker det en gang til *lol* GJETT om det er vanskelig å knyte og få de gjennom hullene og få de til å se ok ut attpåtil? Men kortet ble jo bra til slutt :) Stemplet er Penny Black's - How becoming!
This time the challenge at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog, is #10. Ribbons. And I've chosen to put lots and lots of them on my card! I had seen this done before, but I had no idea of the effort that goes into it - will be some time before I go there again.. *lol* I've used Penny Black stamp - How Becoming!

4 purple Penny Black cards!


Når jeg lager kort lager jeg gjerne 'en serie' kort - som med disse. Du lager kort mye kjappere på den måten, siden du har fargevalg og stempeltrykk klare :)

Har brukt Karen Foster mønsterark og bazzill kartong. Stemplet er Penny Black - 'bouncing with joy', på en akvarell bakgrunn malt i blå- lilla- og rosa toner.

Sometimes when I make cards I make similar ones, since I already got the paper & stamp-motifs all matched :) Theese are made with Karen Foster and Bazzill paper. And the stamp motif is Penny Black - 'bouncing with joy', on aquarelle paper painted in blue, purple & pink. The frame is made with Spellbinder Nestabilities - Oval Classic Scallop Large. And I've used several different corner-punches, I just love my punches!!!
