A Layout dedicated to my daughter

Last weekend I attended a scrapbooking event Trøndersaksa.
It was a lot of fun, and a lot of inspiration from 69 other ladies =)

I joined a course and made this LO which I dedicated to my daughter,
who is far away for 10 months. It's only 8 left!!!
She is an exchange student in Arizona and she
got the most lovely host family

Here are the result of the course with Mija as the teacher.

I couldn't get the right color on this picture, it's not as turquoise as it looks like..

It's an open space under the photo where she can put the journaling.

A self made flower...

I have memory as a goldfish ;) I thought I should remember
what I have used of paint and other texture stuff.
(I guess I have to ask Mija.)

I don't know if this idea was as smart as I thought it would be. LOL
Now I'm totally a fan of this dirty mix media stuff!!
It means I have to bought some new stuff, ups... Shhh, don't tell anyone! ;)
And if my daughter likes it I may have to make some
more Layouts from her exiting year in Arizona.
But that's just a kind of bonus!

Thanks for visiting!

Card to a RBK fan

Once again I have to blow away a lot of dust from this blog.
Because sometimes life happens! 
But as I have said before,
I will always come back!

The past few weeks I packed away my studio and moved some of
it to a smaller room. Everything is a bit chaotic
and I've been taking care of some UFOs (unfinished objects)
 there will soon be a small avalanche of posts
on my other blog Handmade by Anne.

It has been a strange time in the past month,
but now I've got the inspiration to make cards again.
Our daughter has in fact moved to be an exchange student
in Arizona for 10 months, time flies, so now it's only 9 months left!
Can't wait to have her safe back!

But I know she is having a great time ;)
She is a talented blogger, far better than her mother!!
It is so fantastic to be able to follow her through her blog ♥

Enough rambling for now...

The card I will show you today is made to fan of the city's greatest soccer team.

I have "manipulated" the teams logo and put in the name of the boy instead.
Date established is turned into confirmation date. 
I always try to create small details that make the card uniqe.
Maybe that's why I'm a "snail scrapper"..  LOL


Thanks to Torhild who gave me the patterned paper with grass!
That's when all the pieces suddenly fell in place ;)

Wedding cake card

Today I can show you a wedding cake box card I made
for my cousin and her husband last week.

Every time I make a box card of any type I wonder
why I don't do it more often.
It's easy to make and I'm usually satisfied with the result,
..... at least more often than a plain card =)

I made the bottom of the box with two die cuts like the one I used for the tag.

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

ABC - "R is for Romance"
Wild Orchid #53 - "Punch out" (I made top 3!)
Love to Create #21 - "Anything goes"

Thanks for stopping by!

I wish you all a wonderful summer!

Hugs from Anne

I can't promise to post more often at the moment,as my "kids" have summer holliday now.
And I also love to sit outside in the sunshine with a 

small embroidery or knitting this time of the year.

But as I have told you before, I will always return =)

A different book style card, for a sporty man....

How are you doing out there in blogland?

I have been a little bit busy "lately" preparing our son's confirmation,
and last weekend we celebrated the BIG day =)

And as you may know,
I have to slow down now and then,
so thanks a lot for your patience and that you still follow my blog ♥

I can promise that I always will be back ;) 

Heisann, hvordan står det til?

Jeg har vært en del opptatt i forbindelse med
forberedelsene til vår sønns konfirmasjon.
Sist helg ble den STORE dagen feiret =)
(og mamma'n kunne stille i selvlaget kystdrakt.
Resultatet kan du se i den andre bloggen min
 Handmade by Anne  etter 17. mai .)

Tusen takk for at du stikker innom bloggen min og
♥ takk til de som fortsatt følger den ♥
Av og til må jeg ta hensyn til helsa og ta noen avbrekk,
men jeg vil alltid komme tilbake ;)

* * * * * * *

This card was reallly a challenge to make.
This man love the nature and is active in many ways.
He likes to play the game Wordfeud too.

I made his name in Wordfeud letters and put 
them on a rope (symbolizes mountain climbing).

Kortet er laget på bestilling og det var litt av en utfordring.
Herrekort er ikke min sterke side men etter et utall
runder i tenkeboksen kom jeg omsider i mål.

Resultatet ble jeg fornøyd med til slutt ;)
og det beste av alt og det som betyr mest, 
er at giveren ble fornøyd også!

His motto goes like this:

No fear - dare to run risks!

A space to put some extra text panels inside this fold.

I folded book sides as a frame for the motto....

From another angle....

Card without any image.

I don't think I have made a card without any image before.
The challenge for me this time was to do it
as Clean and Simple, and fast as possible *giggle*.
It was a card for my sister birthday yesterday.
You can find her blog here if you want to take a look into her blog =)

Jeg kan ikke huske å ha laget et kort uten motiv før.
Utfordringen jeg ga meg selv var å gjøre det så
"rent og enkelt" som mulig, og så fort som råd var *knis* 

Det er noe i uttrykket "skomakerens barn",
men i år skulle søsteren min få et kort på selve dagen!
Og jeg greide det! for flaksen var på min side denne gangen,
da hun tilfeldigvis var på gjennomreise akkurat i dag.... *puh*
Har du lyst til å ta en tur innom bloggen hennes finner du den her.

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
The Secret Crafter #176 - "No image, just words" (Spotlight card of the week!)
Little Darlings #18 - "Pearls"
Creatalicious #31 - "Lace"

Thanks for stopping by!

Handmade pins.

I just stopped by to wish you all a wonderful weekend!!

So, no card from me today...
But I can show you what I made
yesterday, when I was playing with my pearls.

If your day feels gray,
you can always get it to shine with some pearls =)

Wishing you some shiny days this weekend!

Hugs from Anne
