Anyway, since my local scrapping shop Scrapbooking4you.se has the theme of New Year for their challenge I've made a bottle label cause bottles I will surely use for New Year's ;)
I will also enter Simon says (party), Our Creative corner (food or drink) and Cute card Thursday (Happy new year)
I hope you got all your wishes fulfilled this Christmas, that you were as spoiled by your loved ones as I was!

The first card is made especially for my followers with huge hugs and thanks for visiting my blog and leaving all these gorgeous and up-lifting comments. You rock ladies!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas and eat lots of chocolate cause you have earned every single bit of it!
This card also fits some challenges;) : Charizma cards (anything but Christmas), Creative card crew (anything goes) and Papertake Weekly (thank you).
The other one is the last Christmas card for this year, yey!
I'm entering it in Cupcake challenge (celebration) and in Stamp something (Holiday).

I've been chosen to be a part of the Design Team for Stampin for the Weekend and I'm sooo bubbly about it.
Really talented girls so I feel very priviledged :). I will start my DT assignment when we flip over the calendar to 2010 so I have some time to let this sink in.
Weeeee, and a merry Christmas to me =)

Both Just Magnolia and the Pink Elephant has that (and probably loads more but there's just not enough time...) so here's a Christmas box I've made using the keepsake template from My timeless templates.
And I used the colour combo Cranberry and hunter green for Roses on Paper.
The heart and the banner are from Magnolia's winter clubkit.
All the DT:s got a kit to use and it was so fun to see how differently we created out of the same material. I sidestepped from my boxes and made a giftbag - I know, surprising even to myself. So much that I even wrote backside of the box on the picture =)

Feels like I'm on a roll =).
Scrapbruket, a very well stocked webshop, had this competition where you could win a Martha Stewart punch. Today the result came in and I did!!!
It feels great cause they are sold out around here and it's so much easier to punch with than with my McGill. And the MS one can deal with cardstock! Me likey!!!
Where's the postman??

The monthly challenge at Just Magnolia is a card for someone special and my wee one has three wonderful and very special teachers. I haven't really made cards, I made... can you guess... boxes ;) and this is one of them. Can't show you all three cause one of the other boxes I'm using as a GDT project so that one will come up eventually. But the three boxes are totally different from eachother.
Made the Snowman soup according to the "recipe" I lifted from Rach last year, thanks a bunch hun! And the tiny candy canes are sold out all over town so I had to use large ones and therefore fasten them on the outside of the box. Well, well...

They are really cute of course and I especially like the mini stamp - it will be super for match boxes :)
And I truly appologize for the horrible stamping but to my defense I will say that I had a very eager little helper :)
So if you want the kit to remain a surprise until you get them in your mail box; step away from the computer right now!

I know brown wasn't part of the colour combination (it's green, beige and cream) but I really wanted the brown as background to the lace so I made an executive decision :).

It was really fun to do but the folding of all the boxes took a while.
There are loads of tutorials for this on the net, I wanted a small one though cause many of them have rather large drawers. So I used:
Box 6 x 12,5 cm
Score at 1,5 cm, 5,5 cm, 7 cm and 11 cm
Drawer 6,6 x 8,6 cm
Score at 1,4 cm from all four sides.
Glue the boxes together three by three and then place them in a square.
Make a top and bottom from cardboard, measuring 12 x 12 cm.
I made a very pretty picture to show more clearly but I can't really figure out how to attach a pdf document in Blogger =(

But after painting it, stamping it, distressing it and decorating it with flowers, ribbons, sparkles and a tiny Whiff of Joy charm it's ready for my living room. :)
It's also ready for the challenge over at Whiff of Joy with the colour combo brown, orange and ivory and it suits the Creatalicious challenge with something for Christmas.

Nevertheless, here's my take on it, a bit like a gingerbread house with my favourite Christmas treats inside (they won't last all the way to Christmas though).
It's Monday so it's time for a new challenge over at Die Cut Dreams. This week it's a colour combo and sketch that was really enjoyable to follow. Hop on over and give it a go!
I made another box and placed the sketch on the inside of the lid. Love these colours together.
And so do the team over at Colour Create cause they have the combo too. :)
And Cupcake craft have Snow much fun this week so I'm tossing this in there too.

I managed to get two cards done (well, more or less cause the insides aren't done). The first one was made with a stamp I bargained there and since everything is very distressed - of course - I'm entering it in the Simon says stamp monthly challenge. I actually won some gorgeous Christmas patterned cardstock for that card :)
The other card has images from a cut out pattern from Panduro, the swirl stamp and the glittery thread are also new additions to my horribly growing stash.
Why I didn't bring anything to sell? Cause I don't want to get rid of a single thing :)

Finished the cards to attach to the presents when we go to Germany next week. I used Magnolia's birch tree stamp which is perfect since my town is known as the city of birch trees. It fits the Simon says stamp monthly challenge which is distressing and I don't think I've ever done anything without my distress inks :). No rough edges this time though.
