6 Months Till Christmas

Can you believe it? There is only 6 months till Christmas now!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card on which I have used two old stamp sets from British Clearly Besotted Stamps. Oh my, I have been a huge fan of them for years ever since I came accros their brand :)

This card is created for the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem - for the monthly Christmas card inspiration. Each month we do our best to inspire on the Operation Skriv Hjem blog :)

How cute is this little house. And the sentiment is so fitting :)

Do you get around to create Christmas cards all year round?? Or do you make them all in November and December??

Have fun crafting :)

Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Ice Cream Sweet

So May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017 and I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.
  


For the event I had prepared 3 different challenges for the participants and of course I joined in myself :)

Here is one more of the projects I made during the day........

The Danish sentiment means "Sweet Greetings" and is from Danish Three Scoops
I borrowed this as I had company IRL during the day by two sweet papercrafters.

By using rectangular dies I could create this popcicle ice cream. Sometimes you just have to think out of the box if you don't have a specific die or stamp on hand :)



This was the challenge which my project was based on:

Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Heat Embossing with Tim Holtz stencil

So May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017 and I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.

Here is one of the projects I made during the day........


 On the day of the Cyber Crop Event I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.


 This card was for the challenge with a technique - heat embossing. On this project I have used two different techniques with heat embossing. 

Firstly, I used a stencil to create the flower. I took my VersaMark ink pad and pressed it against the stencil on top of the kraft paper. 

Secondly, I diecut a sentiment and used clear embossing powder on it to give it that shiny look. 



The Danish sentiment means "Hugs". 

 This was the challenge which my project was based on:

Wishing you an inspirational day,
