Dandelion Fairy

 
Christine Karron er vår fantastiske sponsor denne utfordringen hos Creative Fingers #152., og som mitt DT bidrag har jeg lagd et kort med et av hennes motiver, som passet perfekt inn i en av mine favoritt dies som et vindu ♥ 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Dette er faktisk det første jeg har lagd i mitt nye scrapperom! Vi flyttet nylig, (se bilder i forrige bloggpost her) derfor har det vært veldig stille her i bloggen. Det er helt utrolig hvor mye ting og tang jeg hadde samlet på.. selv om jeg har fått en større leilighet enn det jeg hadde før, så har jeg store problemer med å finne plass til det jeg pakker ut! Skjønner det bare ikke.. Tror jeg trenger å kvitte meg med noen greier ~ men bare litt ;)

I'm a few days late with my DT card this time, and I'm sorry to say I have a lot of catching up to do with commenting and groups, as life has been very hectic lately with the move and health stuff... hopefully it calms down soon!

This is for the reminder post challenge #152. over at Creative Fingers is showcasing this gorgeous digistamp from our new sponsor Christine Karron
She is generously giving away an amazing prize pack of 5 coloringpages for the challenge winner! This fairy is in one of the packs offered :)
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

This is actually the first craft creation in my new scraproom! We moved recently (I showed photos of the new house in the last blogpost here), so it has been quiet on the blog for a long while. Because of my bad health, I had help from my family with the packing up and moving, and I love them for that ~ but everything is all mixed up now, have zero ideas as to where half the stuff I need is, or if it still exist ;) 

This is the 'first edition' of my scraproom, wich is nowhere near finished!
Well, no scraproom is ever truly completed, but you know the point where you feel comfy in it? Not there quite yet, but well on the way! Finally able to have my laptop there, and I got the table setup just as I have dreamed of for years! The middle shelves part can be shoved out, so that someone can sit on the opposite side. I'm very lucky my youngest brother is very handy, I just tell him to saw here and screw n hammer there, put some shelves there and move stuff to where I want it .. think I've worn him out! ♥  Must think up something nice to make him as a thank you :)



It's amazing how much stuff one accumulates.. Even if the new apartment is much bigger than my previous, I have big problems finding space for the things I unpack! I need to seriously downsize...

By the way ~ I watched the movie Downsizing (w. Matt Damon) just yesterday...  could've needed some of that shrinking technology right about now! LOL :)

County Fair card ~ and a new home! 🏡


Har endelig kommet meg såpass at jeg kan holde på litt inne på scrapperommet, etter å slitt med veldig vond rygg (hekseskudd) i et par uker. SÅ deilig å kunne bevege seg igjen :) Spesielt nå som det er store forandringer på gang her ~ om litt over ei uke har jeg flyttet til nabokommunen Øksnes! 

🏡 bilder fra Eiendomsmegler1 :)

Min mor er født og oppvokst ikke langt unna der vi nå skal bo, utpå bygda, i et kjempekoselig hus. Hun oppe i toppen og meg i kjellerleiligheten, nydelig utsikt for begge, med vakker fjord og fjell natur ♥ Skogen rett utafor døra ... og ikke minst ~ endelig får jeg meg et ordtnlig stort scrapperom! Det er to soverom i leiligheten min, og selvfølgelig må jo det største bli hobbyrom, den lille boden jeg har nå er så overfyllt at jeg nesten ikke kan snu meg rundt ;) 

Om noen har linker til flotte scrapperom de vil dele, legg gjerne igjen en kommentar, trenger masser av inspirasjon til lure måter å innrede på!
🏡 (psst.. det kommer en flott bloggcandy her når jeg er helt innflytta og fått sett gjennom hva jeg har å gi bort!) 

Kortet mitt idag er lagd med Hero Arts klubbkit som kom i Juli, 'County Fair' tema, eller Tivoli som vi sier på norsk :)



I've finally begun feeling better, beeing able to move around normally, after having a bad crick in my back (lumbago or witch shot or what ever its called, nasty pains in any case) for a couple weeks. It's so wonderful to sit for a while and craft again!

Big changes are coming for me as in about a week I'm moving house! Me and my mum are moving to the neighbouring county to Sortland, Øksnes, wich happens to be where she was born and grew up ♥ She will get the top floor and me the basement apartment, both with a beautiful view of the fjords and mountains, with woods just behind the house. (See photos up above!) 

And the best part: I am getting a BIG scraproom, finally! With two bedrooms, the biggest is ofcourse going to become a scraproom, and I really really needed the bigger space. The little one I have now has gotten so crowded that I barely can turn around in it ;)
 

If anyone want to share links to their own and others fabulous scraprooms and storage solutions, please do! ♥
🏡 (PSsst.. there will be a sweet blogcandy here when I'm all moved in, and have had time to go through my stuff, lots to give away I'm sure!)
 

This time I've been playing with the Hero Arts My monthly Hero kit that came in July, with a Carnivale/County Fair theme. LOVE the sunburst background die! ♥

Dream Big!

.
Er fremdeles helt ødelagt i ryggen, hekseskudd er ikke noe å spøke med! Har stort sett ligget på sofaen i en uke, og ser ingen særlig bedring ~ såvidt jeg klarer å kle på meg sokkene! :P Så det blir nok enda en stund til jeg kommer meg på scrapperommet..
Men i mellomtiden har jeg jo flere kort som jeg har lagd tidligere, som disse to der jeg har brukt den nydelige vindu diesen fra Hero Arts kit'et som kom i mai.

Har abonnert på Hero Arts sine kits helt siden mai i fjor, og alltid blitt superfornøyd med innholdet og kvaliteten. Anbefaler absolutt å prøve, kjempepris og god porto er det også! :) Se bilde eksempler på to av disse kits'ene nederst i bloggposten.

I'm still glued to my sofa, as my back has been all stiff and sore (lumbago/crick in the back). So no crafting for me for a while! But here's a couple of cards I made earlier with the May Hero Arts kit, and the gorgeous window tree die ♥

I've been subscribed to Hero Arts monthly kits since may last year, and have always been super happy with the contents! Fantastic kits, great value and quality ~ I definitely recommend trying one! :) See examples of the kits I used in my card ingredients blurb at the bottom of this post.

Valentine Shaker card

 
Mitt DT bidrag for Creative Fingers #151. som er sponset av Angelique denne gang. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være ♥

Designteamet fikk bruke fritt av hva vi allerede har av motiver, og jeg gjorde det ganske enkelt for meg selv med å klippe ut et fint valentin motiv fra et designerark fra Prima.


Har hatt mye problemer med ryggen min og andre 'ondter' i det siste, så det har ikke blitt så mye scrapping.. Men jeg har heldigvis noen kort jeg bare trenger å ta bilder av.. Så det er ikke helt pause i bloggen! :)


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/




My DT inspiration for Creative Fingers challenge #151. wich is sponsored with a great prize by our Angelique this time. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)
 

I've had much aches n pains lately, so had a bit of a break from crafting.. But I have some cards finished that I only need to edit photos of, so the blog will not be completely deserted for long :)

The team had free choice to use any motifs we wanted on this challenge, and I have cut out a cute valentine image from a Prima designerpaper to use inside my heart shaker ♥ 
Here you can see how the card looks from the inside, and further down there is a side view and a view of the back.

My Viking Hero!

 
Jeg har fått helt dilla på denne nydelige die-rammen fra Hero Arts! Har lagd flere kort med den og stemplene fra Mai kit'et, og de kommer snart, må bare blogge denne tøffe lille vikingen først! Han er fra Roberto's Rascals som du kan finne hos C.C.Designs. Jeg var så heldig å kjøpe flere av digi-stemplene før de forsvant, men man kan enda få Roberto's Rascals som gummistempler  :)


I have had SO much fun with this gorgeous window die from Hero Arts! It came in the My monthly Hero May kit, and I've made many cards I'll soon show. But first this supercute tough little viking dude from Roberto's Rascals ♥ You can get him and others through C.C.Designs, I was so lucky to snag a bunch in digistamps, before they quit carrying them, but they still exist in rubber!
