Perfect - A Prima layout in Pink

This layout was created for the magazine The Papercrafting a while back. 



I used Prima's paper Cherry Blossom Garden - Cherry Blossom Gold Foiled as the background paper. The paper was worked with to create more colours and effects at the edges. I added sequinses and square beads at the edges. Then I used a stencil with gesso to create some texure. Then I used sprays from 13 arts to add some colour. 



The word "Perfect" is chipboard, and has been spray painted in copper.



Leaf dies are old dies fromPrima. The fishing net die cut has been made with a die from Kaisercraft. The flowers has been cut from Prima's Amelia Rose - Dark Florals fra Prima. I used 3D tape between the layers to create dimentions. The photo is from Maihaugen in Lillehammer in Norway.

Vintage suitcase trolley in Harry Potter style

Some time ago, I got a challenge from Hobbykunst to decorate a small trolley. I was asked to make it in a rusty style. I decided to create a vintage suitcase trolley in Harry Potter style. 


All the suitcases are rather small and they are hand made from papers from Maja design's Sofiero collection. I used the papers Princess Margaretas GardenStrolling down the Rose path og Enjoying the fragrance together with white Bazzill.


The trolley is a miniature model of a suitcase. I glued on microbeads from Finnabair with Liquitex heavy gel.  After this, the trolley has got a few strokes of Folk Art rust paint.


The suitcases has been created, making small boxes and adding corners and handles. 


I added different metal charms, a bird huse, shoe, fotball, a spade, a guitar and a little owl.


On the little chest at the back, I aslo added a little tag.





The owl has been created, gluing two owl charms against each other.


Several of the suitcases has been distressed at the edges with Vintage photo distress ink

Puppy Love - a CAS card

Today, I am showing you a simple CAS card featuring the super sweet Puppy Love stamp set. I used the Raven hybrid ink pad for stamping, as this is fantastic to use with watercolors.


The dogs and the fence has been stamped along the image, with the dog with the heart in between. I only coloured the dog with the heart. I mounted the stamped image on black cardstock, and mounted the black card on the front of the card. Everyhing has been mounted with 3D foam for the 3D effect.

 The back of the card is simply decorated with banner diecuts from black cardstock and the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set. The heart has been cut out using a die from the Lovelette die set using the Sincerely Yours - 6x6 Paper pad


Wishing you a happy crafting week :)

Tiny Art

I got inspired by several artists to create "Tiny art", and these were published in The Papercrafting in the beginning of April. This was to show, that you can create a lot of cute art pieces, just by using old craft stash you have lying around in craft supplies.



All the small art pieces are different, and created with old bits and pices from my craft supply. They have been made on a set of chip board pieces. I used texts from Tim Holtz to fit each art piece. Some of the pieces has been created in clay with a moulds from Prima and other brands.I also used small beads, half beads. All the tags were sprayed white before I used green and gold 13 arts sprays and white gesso.



With brave wings she flies



The face, is something I got in a craft swap with a friend many years ago. The wings has been created with clay from one of Primas moulds.


Have an open heart




At the base, I glued on lace from Kaisercraft and microbeads. Then I added some string around the piece. I added a heart and a key, beads and charms.



Great things take time



Here, I used two pocket watches in thick card board. I added microbeads, cork, wooden heart and a wooden number from Tim Holtz. After painting and sprayng, I added beads inside the watch on the top.


Use your wings



At the base, I used lace from Kaisercraft and an old zip. The frame has been moulded from clay. The angel was originaly on a small clothes peg, but removed and added to the project. I added beads inside the frame after painting ad spraying. 


Remember to play



This item is a "lift" of one of Finnabair's famous projects. I used an old zip, lace from Kaisercraft and microbeads at the base. I also added string before i spraypainted the tag. I added a small spoon at the top, and added beads after painting the tag.



Happy crafting.

Gift box with cards

Today, I am showing an oval gift box with five cards. You can find the tutorial for the box further down in the blogpost.


I used the new Sweet Pea paper pad for this project. 



The handle has been made with the small banner die from Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set. The little bow has been made with a sweet bow die from the Happy days die set.




The cards

There is five cards in the box. Two are very similar, so I have only added photos of one of those cards. The cards has been made with the small oval die from the Woodland Foliage Frames die set. The images are from the Safari stamp and die collection. The pink circle has been made with Happy days die set, while the white circle has been made with a die from the Fancy circle die set.  The nuts and leaves has been made with the super sweet leave and nut dies from Woodland Foliage Frames die set. The tags have been made with the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set. I have added a heart on the back of all the cards, created with the heart die from the Lovelette die set.











Oval box tutorial

The box has been created as the main box with a lid. The box has been created in white cardstock, and decorated on all sides with patterned paper. 

Cut out two ovals, using the large oval die from the Woodland Foliage Frames die set. Also cut out two strips of cardstock to create the sides of the box. I used two bits, since the cardstock would not reach all the way around the box. The two pieces were mounted together to create  longer strip of cardboard. The strip is 7,5 cm tall, scored and cut after 2cm. The 7,5 cm side created the side of the box, and the 2cm strip will be glued under the box. 


Fold along the scored line on the paper strip, and cut small lines vertically up the 2cm strip on the rectangle, creating the side of the box. This has to be done to be able to fold and glue the side to the oval. Cut of 3-4 mm of the edge of one of the ovals. This oval has to be  bit smaller because it will be glued inside the box. The other oval (the larger one), will be glued under the box at a later stage. 


Glue the side of the box to the smaller oval. Make sure the oval is on the inside of the box.


Glue the larger oval to the bottom of the box. You have now created the box. 



The lid for the box, has been created in the same way as the box. The lid has to be 3-4 mm larger than the box to be able to fit over the box. The side of the lid is 2cm, scored line and another 2cm 
 used to glue the side to the oval.


Cut of about 2mm of the side of one of the ovals, used on the inside of the lid. Cut vertically strips along the glue line on the side of the lid.


Glue the side of the lid to the box, gluing the smaller oval inside the box, and the larger oval outside the box.


The box is ready to be decorated.
