Ready for the Holidays at CCC

Good evening!

Lately I've had a lot on my plate - I've juggeling a lot at the University and I've also been hit by a bad cold unfortunately. Luckily I'm all well now.

This week at CCC we want you to get READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS by making either something for American Thanksgiving or make something for Christmas. I've chosen to make a Christmas card, since we here in Sweden don't celebrate Thanksgiving.

The image is from Pion Design and the papers are from a collection from Maja Design. Ribbons and lace are from LLC and roses are from WOC. The brads in silver are from a sale a while ago bought at scrapbooking4you.se. The hanger, pin and beaded flower are from LLC as well.

I've colored the clip and the love hanger with white gesso to better match my card. The ticket says "Merry Christmas", but in Swedish, for you who don't know.

Good morning!

After a hectic end of part one of this course at the University we've now begun with part two. It's definitley a lot of reading.

This week at Crafty Creations Challenge the theme is EASY AS 1 2 3. We want you to use 1 ribbon, 2 embellishments and 3 papers, otherwise it's up to you. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Split it up at CCC

Good evening!

University sure keeps you busy. Finished up a short paper yesterday and this week it has planned for us to read a book, write a summary of the book, have a compulsory seminar and also perform a play based of the book... Luckily I'm not working at the gas station this weekend!

Now I'll tell you about the challenge at CCC this week. It's called SPLIT IT UP and we want you to use a sentiment on your project, but to split it up. I've chosen to write two words on two pieces of paper to place on my project. I've made a bookmark with gorgeous Tilda Blowing Hearts.

Tilda is colored with Distress Markers. I've used Antique linen, Vintage photo and Walnut stain for her hair. For her skin I've used Tattered rose and Vintage photo. Her cheeks are painted with Worn lipstick and Aged Mahogany. I've used Vintage photo and Walnut stain for her shoes. I've used Faded jeans and Antique linen for her clothes. The hearts are colored with Worn lipstick and the background is colored with Weathered wood and for the soil I've used Vintage photo.

Good afternoon!
I've been doing a lot of reading lately and with the first seminar behind me I feel a lot more comfortable. Phew!

This week at CCC we want to see your KRAFTY SIDE with the theme LET'S GET KRAFTY. You can add some kraft color to your project with papers, ribbons and/or embellishments. I've chosen some kraft paper as my base.

Make two over at Crafty Creations

Good morning!

This is going to be a scheduled post, since I'm at work (working day five out of seven). My last week before school starts. Starting this fall, and three years forward, I'll be studying sociology. Feels great to move forward!

The announce I actually wanted to make was to present the challenge this week over at Crafty Creations. And this week we want to see your interpretation of MAKE TWO. I've interpreted very literally and made TWO pin holders.

If you want to make one yourself check out the tutorial above under "TUTORIALS". They are SO easy and so much fun to make!

Roses - Wild Orchis
Guipure lace - Live & Love Crafts
Pearls - PY Hobby
Pearl string - Live & Love Crafts
Crisp ribbon - Live & love Crafts
Pom pom trim - Live & Love Crafts

These two ended up at my two best friends - one who likes blue and the other one who likes green.

Hope you've found some inspiration!

Use an arrow over at CCC

After a sunny and warm Croatia I'm back again in Sweden. Now I just have to figure out what to do this fall...

Until then I'd like to show you some cards. I seem to be in a Magnolia phase right now. The latest addition to my collection is Tilda with heart spots.

This week at CCC we want you to use an arrow on your project. I've used one from Tim Holtz in a gorgeous vintage brown color. Can't wait to see your projects!
