Allsorts - anything goes

this week the challenge at Allsorts is Anything goes. Nice to have those "let's do whatever"-kinda weeks :)
I made a card with a new text die, once again a die with a stitched edge (I know, I have a tendency to almost wear new things out when I get them) and a gorgeous baby hands stamp I got for my birthday.

Allsorts - Hearts and/or Flowers

this week the challenge at Allsorts is Hearts and/or Flowers. Shouldn't be too much of a struggle I suppose :)
At least it wasn't for me, I made some gift boxes in blue and gold, a favourite layout that works for all sorts of occasions.

Allsorts - paper piecing

this week the challenge at Allsorts is Paper piecing. I made a gift tag using a Lili of the Valley stamp and the colour scheme pink and brown. I just adore my new dies with the stitched edge and I have ordered some more in other shapes :)

Now I'm off to a chorus weekend, two whole days singing and dancing with my wonderful chorus friends in Snowflake singers.

Allsorts - daisies, daisies

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week the theme is daisies, daisies. I recently got hold of Sizzix bigz die Daisies, not entirely easy cause I found it on Amazon and that company didn't ship to Sweden. Luckily we had some friends that live outside London and they visited us for New Year's so they bought it and brought it with them.

I made a card for a christening and I'm so happy I finally got hold of the die cause the flowers turned out just the way I wanted them.

Allsorts - wings on things

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week the theme is Wings on things, so add something fluttering :).
I made a gable box and used a butterfly die I purchased on E bay before Christmas. The cuts are really delicate and the finish really pleasing.

Allsorts - Cats and dogs

Hi all,
time for a new challenge at Allsorts, we want your creation to feature cats or dogs.

I made a card with a lion from Kenny K, very suiting as a Christmas card for our chorus director, whose last name is Lejon - the Swedish name for lion :).

We have a lovely prize from Sizzix this week so do join in!

Allsorts - Something new

Morning all,
first challenge at Allsorts for 2017 and Mervi set the theme to Something new. Little did I know just how suiting that would turn out to be...
Presenting to you the poem I got for Christmas from my older daughter, roughly translated: Dear mum, you're gonna be a grandma at the end of June. The last line - in my body, beloved mum, there are two hearts beating - brings me to tears every time, seriously every time! So I wanted to make it into a keepsake, using a paperpack from Lemoncraft I got from my best friend and a new butterfly die that I bought two of, one for me and one for my bestie :)

The prize this week comes from Tattered Lace so you join too with something new (wow, rhyme, impressive, hehe)
