Velkommen inn.....

... til min blogg, som for det meste er om kort. Jeg er også veldig glad i å reise (spesielt Egypt) og å ta bilder, så det kan dukke opp noen scrappesider innimellom.
Blir veldig glad hvis du legger igjen spor etter deg...

Tag nr 3 / tag nr 3

Siste tag, for denne gang. I friske deilige farger. Hva er vel bedre en knallorange  (spiced marmelade) på sommeren, og legger vi til litt cerise (picked raspberry) så er vi i boks.
Last tag for now. In fresh vibrant colors. What's better than very orange (spiced marmelade) in the summer, and if we add some cerise (picked raspberry), well, there you have it.
Jeg har brukt embossing paste på denne også, i tillegg til litt stensiler og to stempler fra North Star Stamps(sommerfugl og tekst).
I've used embossing paste on this one too, a few stencils and two stamps from North Star Stamps (butterfly and text).

Jeg har prøvd meg på en tag og to......./I've made a tag or two....

Jeg var så heldig at når jeg var på Ski-treff i mars så satt jeg ved samme bord som Anne, og det må man selvsagt benytte seg av :)
Fikk mange gode tips.....
Så jeg lagde noen tag'er med distressputer og vann, stensiler og litt stempling
Her er den første:
When we were at Ski-treffet in march I was so lucky that I sat at the same table as AnneOf course I had to take advantage of that :)
She had a lot of tips.
I ended up making a few using distressink, water, stencils and some stamps.
Here's the first one:
 Jeg har brukt picked raspberry og seedless preserves, litt vann og perfect pearls (forever violet). Hadde alt på underlaget og dyppet tag'en oppi, flere ganger, tørket den helt før jeg dyppet igjen..
Stanset ut hånda og fargelagt den, stemplet opp blomsten, klippet den ut og fargela den og.
I used picked raspberry and sedless preserves, perfect pearls (forever violet) and added some water. I dried the tag compleately before I dipped it again
Cut out the hand and colored it, stamped the flower, cut it out, then colored that too
 Anne hadde med seg litt utstyr fra Tim'ern og Rangers så jeg fikk låne denne stensilen, den er sååå fin.
Selvsagt kjøpte jeg med meg noen stensiler og en boks embossing paste.....
Stemplet litt her og der...
Anne brought with her a lot of Tim's and Rangers equipment, and I borrowed this stencil. Love it.....
Of course I had to buy a box with embossing paste and some stencils.
Stamped a little bit here and there..
 Nydelig charms fra Kort og Godt...
Sløyfa er laget med hug-snug og picked raspberry og seedless preserves
Beautiful charm from Kort and Godt.
The bow are made of hug-snug colored with picked raspberry and seedless preserves.
Baksiden.
Plass til å skrive en liten hilsen eller noen kloke ord om man vil... 
The back.
Room for a greeting or some wise words....

Strikkepinne etui.../box for knttingpins

Jeg har laget en box til min svigermor som ho kan ha strikkepinnene sine i.
Det er laget av en tom pringles box som jeg har dekorert med mønsterark fra Pion Design, blomster, bling, charms og tekster som jeg har skrevet ut på pc'en. 
I have made a box for my mother in law that she can keep her knittingpins in. It's made of an empty pringlesbox, that I've decorated with DP from Pion Design, flowers, bling, charms, and texts written out on my computer...
Sånn ble den:
This is how it turned out
Masse blonder, bling og bånd/lots of lace, bling and ribbon
Nydelig bilde fra Sagene Design?/gorgeous picture from Sagene Design?
