Eggene er laget av vatt. Eggene her er hvite, men kan males. Det ene egget er malt gult. Deretter jar eggene fått en spray av sort mist for å skape litt farge i eggene.

Simple Joys of Life - Layout created for CHA - spring 2017 for Kaisercraft

This spring, I has eight layouts shown at CHA, at Kaisercraft's stand. This layout was created with the Wildflower colletion. The photo is from the sunset at the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden (2011). 


PAPERS: Wildflower Collection - P2269 Vines, CD603 Premium Cardstock – Black.

Photo: 10cm x 16cm (3 15/16” x 6 5/16”).

Start with the background paper VINES (reverse). Center the work above the center of the page, slightly to the left.  Create the large chevrons using the Designer Template and black ink. Create the smaller chevrons using the Chevron texture stamp. 

Add a light rectangle, from the WILDFLOWER paper pad, behind the photo. The rectangle is adding a light border to the photo. Add a rectangle of black cardstock, behind the photo with the light frame. This will create a black frame outside the white frame. Add rectangles of different sizes behind the photo with the frames. 

Create diecuts from the WILDFLOWER paper pad with the Clock die and the Mandela die. Also make a diecut with the clock die and the black cardstock. Create diecuts of the cogs in the glitter cardstock. Create tags with the pink papers from the WILDFLOWER paper pad and the Love quotes dies. 

Colour the lace with black ink. Layer the lace, paper rectangles and diecuts, using 3D tape to create dimensions. Add the photo with the frames. Cut a banner at the end of two glitter tape strips, MINT and ICE BLUE. Add the glitter tape, at the right side of the image. 

Add the quote “Think Happy, Be happy” from the WILDFLOWER collectables. The edge of the quote has been cut, using patterned scissors. and black cardstock has been added underneath. Add the text from the bottom of the VINES paper (reverced) to the layout. Add Rhinestones and Pearls to the layout.

Birthday card with a new stamp release from LDRS creative

Today, I am showing you a card with one of LDRS creative's new stamps from their new collections. The stamp is a Candi Bean image, "Happiness in a cupcake". This is a fantastic sweet stamp, perfect for all those birthday cards. The image has been painted with distress ink on water colour paper. The paperpad used here is from Kaisercraft's Time machine collection.

The die set used for this card is the Fancy Rectangels Layers Die set. In Norway you can get this die set at Hobbykunst. These dies has also been used inside the card, to create space to write a message.

I normally decorate on the inside and back on my card, although quite simply.

Kaisercraft has got a really sweet pet collection out this month. Today, I am showing a box for cat toys. 

This s an ordinary cardboard box, covered and decorated with paper.

I have used papers from the cat paper pack, together with collectables and wooden føourish pack.

I have also used a stencil on the background, to create some pattern.

The cat quote and the brown paper fish is from the colletables.

The papers and photos has been added in layers with 3D tape between the layers.

You never know what you have, until you clean your craft room

Hand made interior pieces are always fun. I have had some fun with some old wooden pieces, and created vintage signs. This is a fun sign, that I created for my craft room, and has shown for The Papercrafting today. 

Signs like this is a nice personal gift, or a little something to add to your own home.  They are always a fun little thing to have on the wall or on a shelf.

Creating the sign: 

  1. Glue together pieces of wood to create the size you want. When the glue has dries, sand the edges of sign. 
  2. Paint the sign (I used black acrylic paint).
  3. Add the text. I used a hand made stencil, created with a silhouette. There are stencils with letters, or text's that you can get in craft shops. You can also paint the sign in the colour you want the letters, add thickers or sticky letters and paint the sign again. When the paint has dried, remove the added letters. 
  4. You may want to work a bit with the letters after you used the stencil, going over some of them, to tidy them up a bit in places.
  5. The edges here, has a glitter pattern. This has been created using one of Tim Holtz stensils (Set 4 - Mini Layered Stencil Set). I have added blank gesso above the stencil. When the gesso was wet, the glitter was added.


A simple birth frame

Hobbykunst has got some nice frames with pegs on lines. These frames, are perfect for those simple birth frame projects. Here, I have also used a new Rayher baby bodysuit die..

The papers for the bodysuits and the little quote, is from the papers Pebbles - Lullaby. The frame behind the quote, is from Kaisercraft's Cottage Rose collection.

The text, baby, hs been creted with Kaisercraaft dies. There are a lot of different letter dies to choose from, and you can swap the word baby, for the name of the child.

Heart box with template and tutorial

This is a tutorial written for the magazine - Ett trykk, February 2016

My first item in print, was a little paper dress, created from coffee filters, in a heart box. The box was based on a the shape for many similar boxes found online. I really like this shape, and like the way the box opens at the top, just by squeezing it. 

Heart box tutorial


Paper: Maja design, Summer time - Smell the roses. White bazzill og acetate. 
Ink: Archival Inkpad - Jet Black, Tim Holtz: Vintage Photo - Distress Ink Pad 


Cut out the pieces according to the template. Score along the dashed lines. 
If you want a transparent front, use acetate for the front piece. Also cut an extra piece of the heart top in Bazzill. 

Fold along the scored lines. There are only a few types of glues that will stick to acetate. Use a good double sided tape like score tape. Mount the little top of the heart, to the front of the acetate, at the front of the box. 

Mount panels to the inside of the box. It is important that you decorate the box inside, before you mount it together. This decoration is difficult to do, after you have mounted the box together. 

Glue under one of the squares at the bottom, and glue that square over the other. This is creating the bottom of the box. 

The bottom of the box has been mounted together. The inside of the box has been decorated.

Mount Score tape on all the acetate glue tags. 

Mount the acetate tags, under the box. Then, mount the acetate tags at the side of the box, at the back - outside the box. It could be a good idea, to keep the back strips of the Score tape on, until you are going to glue ut. 

The box itself, has been created. Add the panels in patterned paper to the back, and under the box. a piece of patterned panel paper to the front - top heart. 

The box is now finished with panels, and can be decorated.

The front of the box, has been simply decorated with a home made flower, a small text and leaves.

The back of the box has been simply decorated with a stamped text, roses from Wild Orchid
and Mathia flowers.
