Add-On BlogCandy #3.


[..Sticky Post - scroll down for new posts..]

New Blogcandy! With some changes from last time ~ everything is shown in the photo, no surprises... and theres a linky now! 😊  

This is an add-on Blogcandy still, as I will add the three extra goodies you see attatched on the right of the image below, when there are 10/20/30 entries! If there are even more entries, there is a digistamp BONUS for 3 extra winners!


Here you will find treasure in old discontinued stamps, that maybe is hard to find as well as some other scrapbooking goodies. There are some nicely used stamps here that I am hoping will find a new home, as well as new and unused stuff!


Just click on photos to see in bigger detail!

Blogcandy Contents;

💠 Whiff of Joy - Norma Fickel 'WOJ Feeling better'
used EZ-mount rubberstamp.
💠 Nellie Snellen 'Koetie Sweet dreams' clearstamp.

💠 Winnie the Pooh & Tigger eraser and pencil.

💠 Trimcraft Simply Creative 6mm adhesive red and green pearls (350+)


Blogcandy Add-ons; (updated on date: / . will have a ✔️ when included!)

✔️ x20 entries = Panduro Hobby 6x red Crochet flowers.
🔔 x30 entries = DoCrafts Urban Stamps 'Chronology Apothecary' 4x4 EZ-mounted rubberstamp. 

I am still finding plenty of duplicates in my stash while organizing and adding stuff into my giveaway box ~ and what is not won this time will pass on to the next blogcandy!

.... and even though I said no surprises, there might be some extra extras getting added when I wrap this blogcandy up at the end ~ no matter if the add-ons have been added or not ;) 
 



This BlogCandy is open to all you wonderful crafty people who stop by my blog ~ I will ship worldwide ~ and while I would appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, it's not necessary to win ♥ But please ~ ONE entry each & NO Non-crafters or Candy-only-bloggers, that would not be fair! 

The only thing I ask of you is that you spread the word by sharing this blogpost. Feel free to use the blogcandy photo, (or the small one in my sidebar) either on your own blog (sidebar is fine) and add a link ~ or share via pinterest, instagram, facebook, twitter etc. even just telling a friend counts :)

EXTRA BONUS! If there is more than 30 x entries, I will also pick 3 more winners who will get a freebie digistamp each (of their choice) from my etsy shoppe! So do get the word out 😊
 



  

The candy will end on November 30th. at 23:55/11:55 PM.
norwegian time ~ see my sidebar clock.

Crow Totem ~ art journal page



Som mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #174., har jeg lagd en mixed media side i min art journal, noe som er en sjelden begivenhet! De gangene jeg lager noe i min art journal, er det som oftest pga. helt spesielle ting, designerark, malte motiver og pynt ~ ting jeg ikke får til å bruke ellers, og heller uansett vil beholde selv..

Har nok vært influert av halloween og det at jeg så på 'the Labyrinth' (for ørtende gang ~ elsker den!) når jeg så for meg temaet her... 

Hovedmotivet fikk jeg for en god stund siden som en freebie i Michelle Traceys nyhetsbrev, og da hun skulle være sponsor for denne utfordringen tenkte jeg med en gang på å bruke denne nydelige 'Crow Totem' jenta. 

Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)


Forresten... om du ikke har sett den enda, så har jeg en flott bloggcandy her

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/




I think this theme came to me since it was Halloween and having watched 'the Labyrinth' for the umpteenth time.. absolutely LOVE that movie ♥

Made this mixed media art journal page as my DT creation for challenge #174. at Creative Fingers. I rarely make art journal pages, but when I do it is usually because I got a painted motif and/or papers that I don't want to part with, just wanting to keep them for my self ;)
 

This motif was a freebie I got in a newsletter email many months ago from Michelle Tracey, and when she was going to sponsor this challenge I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous 'Crow Totem' girl ♥

As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

Life is too short to be Normal ~ Stay Weird!


Den 5 oktober i år var 'World Cardmaking Day' og jeg lagde to kort til en utfordring på en facebook cyber crop som TPC Magazine holdt. Artikkelen med Galleri og Top3 finner du her. Utrolig mange flotte kreasjoner! 

Det var tre utfordringer, men jeg fikk bare gjort en av dem ~ Moodboard. Jeg har hatt flere Katzelcraft og Visible Image stempelsett ganske lenge uten å bruke dem, og siden jeg har lovt meg selv å bruke mest mulig av sånne 'avglemte' stempler, ble det to morsomme mixed media kattekort fra meg ~ med et kjempe-kjempe-gammelt Stampotique stol stempel som passet helt purrrfekt til kattepusene! :) 

Sjekk ut den nyeste bloggcandy'en min her!  






October 5th. was the 'Worlds Cardmaking Day' and I participated in the Cyber Crop event that the scandinavian TPC Magazine held on Facebook. There were so many awesome creations and the gallery and top3 can be found here

They had three challenges and I wish I would have been able to do all of them, but I chose one that really was so much fun to do as I was inspired to use some mixed media! And also I got a chance to play with some supercute Katzelcraft & Visible Image stamps I've had for a while now and not used. As I've recently decided to use more of my forgotten and unused stamps and stash, I made two cute cat cards ~ with a really old Stampotique chair stamp that was a PURRFECT fit for my cats! :)

I'm late again with my blogpost, migraine for three days has made it a struggle to be creative, when all I really want is a dark room and no brain input.. Luckily I have a good medication that works ~ only for a few hours though ~ so I was able to make this christmas card in very untraditional pink & brown colors 😊

This is my DT creation for this fortnights challenge #173. at Creative Fingers, and the beautiful motif is from our generous sponsor Morgan's ArtWorld.
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥
