Digital kalender 2023

 Jag har gjort en kalender till min iPad och tänkte att jag kan gärna dela med mig av den om någon känner att de har användning av den.

På startsidan - och dit kommer man från alla sidor genom att klicka på det lilla huset - finns flikar för årets alla månader. Dessa flikar är länkar till en månadsöversikt och i högerkanten finns den månadens veckor. Så om jag väljer fliken maj och vill till den 3 maj så väljer jag att klicka på vecka 18 i högerkanten och kommer då till bladet för den veckan. 

Formatet är pdf så du behöver bara hämta den på din iPad - eller maila den till dig själv om du sitter vid en dator eller telefon, och öppna den i det anteckningsprogram du använder. Jag använder appen Goodnotes så jag väljer bara alternativet Öppna med Goodnotes.

ABC Christmas - W/X

 This month at ABC Christmas the theme is 

W for white or X for X-tra special. 

I have long thought about making a shadow box and decided that I would give it a go for this challenge. I used my Silhouette cameo for cutting out the pieces and then I mounted them together. I must say I'm really pleased with the result. 

This is the box with an electrical tea-light behind it.

Other challenges:

Crafty Catz - 3 or more layers
Happy little stampers - Christmas 
Crafty Calender - A/G
Stamping sensations - Christmas celebrations
We love stamping - Christmas
Dare 2B Artzy - non birthday
Peace on earth Christmas - A/G Christmas

Celebration card

 Here is a celebration card using my beloved daisy die from Sizzix, with some sparkling ribbon, pearls and gingham paper.

Thought I'd step away slightly from the Christmas cards since Allsorts are having a big celebration with lovely prizes and I never had the opportunity to enter the prize draw when being a DT member. (Not that I count on winning since I live in Sweden and the challenge blog usually just sends stuff within the UK but it's a hommage for old times sake)


Allsorts - celebrate any special occasion (well, this is celebrating Allsorts 700th challenge)
Happy little stampers - Birthday A/G
Try it on Tuesday - Sparkle and Shine
Love to Craft - A/G
Fab'n'Funky - shades of blue
