Velkommen til den nye bloggen min, Frk. Bogstad! Kjekt!


At Beccy's Place there is a new freebie for July.
I have used it for this CAS children's card.
On cards for small children I do not use
charms, pearls and so on.

A CAS Summer Card

At first I want to welcome Jannie and Beccy
as my first followers on my new blog.
As some of you already know,
I had to delete the old one,
due to bad bugs.

This afternoon we are going to visit some good friends of ours,
and I made them this CAS summer card.
I used:
White double card A6;
Purple paper;
Yellow scrap paper;
Image: Sweet Peas (Beccy);
We R Memory Keepers Nesting Card die;
Oval die: Spellbinders;
Butterfly die: Studio Light "Home and Happiness";
Rhine stone on the butterfly and silver pen for the faux stitching.

Birthday Card

I want to use this embossing folder again
which was a free gift with an English crafting magazine
I bought in Norway last month.
For "Seize the Birthday"'s challenge "Red, white and you"
I chose green as the third colour.

I used:
White double card A6;
White card stock;
Snippets of green and red papers;
Distress ink, rhine stones and markers;
Embossing folder: "Swan and roses" (Papercraft);
Die: "Ivy" (Cottage Cutz);
Flowers: EK Success punch.

I embossed two different white card stocks
and coloured one of them with red distress ink.
Then I cut out the ribbon with the sentiment
from the coloured card stock
and glued it on the same place on the other one.
Red pen for the faux stitches.

I want to take place here:
Seize the birthday (Red, white and green)

Purple distress ink for the edges and the greeting.

Litt hekling

Det er ikke ofte jeg hekler.
Men denne uken fant jeg ut
at jeg skulle lage trekk til noen glass og bokser
som jeg har tatt vare på.
Det har hopet seg opp med restegarn etter klutestrikking,
og det er greit å få brukt det opp slik.

Dette var den opprinnelige boksen:

Og slik ble det ferdige resultatet:

Nå har jeg fått en passende oppbevaringsboks til krus-brikkene jeg heklet for et års tid siden.
