Fairy tale Tilda box

Today was my sisters confirmation.
It was very lovely, and cosey.
I actually had to get up early to finish her gift, because I lost
a lot of scrap time this week because Sofie was sick for a few days,
so any time I had to myself went into studying for my exsam.

The images are all a bit crocked, I usually fix that with photoshop,
but I dont have it on this computer.
At least the colors are okey.
I took the images with my new iPhone (gift from my man),
my old phone was falling apart.

This box is a part of a gift set for my sister,
its three pieces in total.
You can see the other ones later. ;)
This box has sides that is 5x5 inches.
I made the template myself.
It was really not supposed to be this big,
but I only had one die that fit all the stamps I wantet to use,
so big it became. I wanted it to be really girlie and pink,
with lots and lots of flowers and details.
The images was all chosen carefully,
I was going for something like a fairy tale,
or playing dress up or something. 

I used papers from Maja design, I really love them!
Need to buy some more soon...


The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts,
except for the big one on the lid,and a smaller one on the lid,
 its from Prima. I also used a few from Petaloo. 


I used some lace from Ribbon Girl (I think?),
and some seem binding ribbon from WOC. 


I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch,
the rest of my bling,
Star Dust Stickles,
and some kind of crystals, they hardly show on the images though. 



The images are all from Magnolia, of course.
They are all painted with Distress Reinkers,
I used a looot of Victorian Velvet. ;)


On every side there is a doily.
It almost broke my heart covering up that gorgeous paper,
the box really was stunning before I started to add the stuff,
but the plans was made and the images was done.
I think I have to buy the paper and make more boxes with it,
it was really perfect for that!


Can you see the crystals here? To the right, there are two. 


On this set I used a little bling heart on each of the creations,
you can see it right on the bottom here.
I also love that pearl brad.
And here you can see one of the crystals quite clear,
I think. 


Thats a whole lot of images!
It took a few hours to make that box,
and a few miscalculations,
I always do mistakes when I cut the papers and fold etc.
You know that feeling when you miscut your last paper and
totally ruined it, and its too small to fix?
Sometimes I have to work hard not to
beat myself in the head with my cutting board. ;)

Edward Easel Card

I spent the money I made so far selling my cards and ordered
some new papers. Needed some papers suited for boys and mens card,
and gosh, I really love these new papers from Maja design!
I also got a new die, more stickles, a set of new sentiment stamps,
and papers to make a gift set
for my sisters confirmation next weekend.

All the papers are from Maja Design.
Again, I really love them!
Every side of the card is covered, and inside there is a pocket for money.



Edward is from The Greeting Farm.
I colored him with my Distress Reinkers.
The sentiment says something like "on your confirmation day",
and it is from Kort og Godt.
I used some pearls here and there, now I am all out of pearls! 


I got this new star tag die from Magnolia, I have been wanting
it for some time now. :) The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used a strip of lace, and a lovely swirl die that I got for my birthday
from my sweet friend Elaine.
I also used a bit of twine (WOC), and a bling charm.
The letters are from My Little Shoebox,
I covered them with Crackle Accents to make them stick, 
and embellished with a bit of Liquid Pearl.

More Confirmation

So first we moved, and was without internet.
Then I broke my laptop when my daughter fell of the couch
and hit her head really hard on the floor (she`s fine now, just got
a big lump on her head), and as I tried to grab her my laptop fell to the
floor, and the screen broke. I don`t think I am supposed to have
things that cost money, I am the biggest klutz ever.

Yesterday I finally set up my scrap desk.
My hubby works at the local food store and sells my cards
there, and people have been asking a lot for boys cards.
Seems there are only boys in this place.
Typical, since I love so much to make girls cards.

Also, I was challenged to make a really masculine card and use paint
at a scrap forum, so this is my card for that.
Dont know if its REALLY masculine,
but its tougher than what I usually make. ;)



The papers are from Pion and Maja Design.
I used masking tape and acrylic paint on the background.
The frame and film strip is from Tim Holtz,
and I used a piece of grey lace, a chain, and some string.
The image is from Pretty Vintage.

With this card I join this challenge:
Cardandscrap - Vintage



I also threw together this card.
The image is chipboard.
The papers are Maja Design, BoBunny, and a piece of Prima packaging.
The lace is from Wild Orchid Craft.
I used dies from Magnolia (tag), and a die and film strip from Tim Holtz.
The clock charm is from Kutt Ut, tied with string.

Purple Confirmation Tilda *CLP Challenge*

At the end of April we moved to a new (old!) house,
about a kilometer away from where we used to live.
When I am writing this I am in the middle of boxes,
its just a huge horrible mess. I really hate moving...

We are also going to be without internet for a few days,
oh the HORROR! I`ll be back commenting and posting as soon
as possible though. I just need a new scrap desk,
I have been using an old kitchen table, and we will need to use it
to eat off when we move.

Anyways...
Here is my card for the May sketch at CLP challenge!
Its a beautiful sketch I think.
It is another confirmation card. 


I used papers from Maja Design, Pion and Inkido.
I also used lace, some swirl dies, and a doily. 


On the inside I made a pocket for money,
and I could not help myself, I had to embellish a little,
even if that makes the card a bit uneven. 


The flowers are from Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts,
and Petaloo. 


I used my Martha Stewart puncher to make these butterflies.
The charms was a gift from a dear sweet friend. 


The letters are from My Little Shoebox.
Tilda was colored with Distress Reinkers.
