Funky girl bookmark

Can you ever have too many bookmarks? For me that answer is no! I love reading and I rarely manage to read just one book at a time. I am also terribly good at misplacing my bookmarks so having an extra supply of those is great. With a kid that also loves to read it’s just a great way to keep making bookmarks!

Går det ann å ha for mange bokmerker? Jeg tror ikke det. Jeg leser stort sett mer en enn bok av gangen, og har ikke alltid like god kontroll på hvor jeg legger fra meg bokmerkene når en bok er lest ut, så det er en god ide å ha flere liggende. Når i tillegg det er en som har begynt å lese i år så har man rett og slett enda en god grunn til å lage bokmerker!

I opted for pink, for a change, for this bookmark. I’ve used various dies from La-La Land Crafts, Memory Box and Precious Marieke, some washi tape, embossed a background and coloured up a stamp from Huldra Designstudio.

Wryn Wishes for hugs

It is Friday! Yey! The snow is finally nearly gone and we have decent spring weather and it has gotten reasonably warm rather quickly. I am loving it! Spent so much time outside this week!

Today it’s time to snow you another Tiddly Inks card, for Fab Friday! For this card I’ve used the lovely image Wryn Wishes. I’ve used a border die from La-La Land Crafts, leaves are from a Precious Marieke die and the hearts are from Memory Box. The hugs is a chipboard from Make it Crafty and I’ve used Maja Design paper. Around the image I’ve used a swirly leaf die from Noor Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Bringing gifts in the snow

As I mentioned earlier this month: I managed to complete my two Christmas cards this month. Here is the other one. This one was also completed on the 28th February. Got to love last-minute work, right? I decided to go with another winter themed card as they are my favourites for Christmas.

For this one I used a Magnolia stamp, various Maja Design paper, acrylic paint, candi, Memory Box and QuicKutz (Lifestyle Crafts) dies and cheese cloth.

And the side on view:

Beary sweet bookmark

It is no secret that I love to read. I don’t read a large amount of books a year or anything, but I do try to get through one or two a month. So far this year I have finished four. One, potentially bad, habit I have is to read several books at the same time. Generally they are very different kinds of books, and I prefer to have one in Norwegian and one in English at least. I am currently reading three. This means I require a few bookmarks, and as I couldn’t find two of them when I started on my most recent book I decided it was time to make the bookmark I’d said I would make to match the one I made for the kid in January. Obviously mine had to be in a blue/teal kind of colour!

I decided to use the same stamp, as I think she’d like that. It is Beary Sweet from Tiddly Inks and I’ve coloured it in with Copics before I cut it out by hand. I adore Wryn wearing her panda hat! The tag was made using Silhouette Portrait 2. (I really don’t like that machine, but I’m finally finding something where it is semi-useful and cuts where I want (ish!).) All the papers are from Bazzill (plain) and Maja Design (patterned). I’ve used dies by Memory Box and candi by Craftwork Cards, and some random ribbon I had laying about which colour fit perfectly! I love it when that happens!

I decided to use another of the stamps in that set on the back side of the bookmark. It took a moment to find a quote I liked that I could have on the back as well, and I chose this one by C. S. Lewis. I absolutely loved watching Narnia every Easter and Christmas when I grew up. It was the old BBC series and it was worth getting up to watch it every morning for sure. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was my favourite, and as I still enjoy that story, I thought the quote was perfect! To make sure everybody knows that it’s my bookmark, I added a my name behind the quote.

Here you can see the front and back together in one photo.

24. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Merry Christmas everybody! We celebrate here in Norway today, on the 24th of December. After a while of mandatory Christmas programs on the TV we’ll get dressed and head to my parents for Christmas dinner. Yum! Can’t wait!

Today’s post features as a windy Mo Manning image! I’ve decided to keep the card looking cold, but keeping the colours on the image as well. I’ve used Maja Design, Bazzill, Søstrene Grene and Papirdesign paper along with the obligatory dash of acrylic paint! I do love that effect very much! I’ve made a few snowflakes with a Memory Box die, added some Craftworks Cards’ card candi, cheese cloth, twine and Kort og Godt charm. The sentiment is part of the Maja Design papers.

The image has been coloured with Copics, as always. I’ve added some windy white bits over it using embossing and I quite like the effect of it!

Here is a view of the bottom left side of the card so you can easier see some of the details with the charm and how the acrylic paint and embossed snow work on the image.

And the obligatory funky view!
