Confirmationcard wtih Magnolia Image

Hi again.
Between most christmas- and birthdayprojects I thought I'd show a confirmation card I made a while ago. This one has the shabby chic, fully loaded style that I like so much. I think Magnolia images are just perfect for this style. The image is coloured with ProMarkers. Around it I sprinkled on some Frantage. DPs used are from Papirdesign, and the cardstocks are from Bazzill.
I used several dies, a MS Punch, lace, cheesecloth, seambindingribbon, twine, charms, a button, halfpearls and pearlstrings. The flowers are dipped in frantage (then heated to fasten the stuff). All paperedges are inked With DistressInk WalnutStain.
Inside the card I stamped on a poem and made a Pocket for either a giftcard or some Money.


I'll join the following Challenges:
lovely hÄnglar or sweet Magnolia #137 - Use a die cut
Simply Magnolia - CAS or Fully Loaded

Christmas Notebook

Hello again, friends and followers.
Suddenly I got the house all to myself as the rest of the family went fishing. There's still more than an hour to NCIS starts, so I thought I'd have some happy time in my work room :)

Tonight I'll show you a little christmas note book that I made. Well - I made the cover to put a store bought notebook in... Quite handy when preparing for christmas.
I used Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, and DPs from Maja Design, some twine, a label holder and a couple of brads to keep it in place. All papers are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
The border on the picture panel is made with a Martha Stewart Punch.
Here it is:

Birthday @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Good Morning from wonderful Røst.
It is a lovely day, the sun is shining, it's no wind - maybe I'll find a little time sitting out in the sun as well today...

Wednesday means a new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This week’s theme is Birthday
Our sponsors is  Little Miss Muffet 

Their prize is $6 voucher 

I got myself the Envelope Punch Board, and had to try it immediately. Searching the internet I found lots of fun stuff made with it. One of the things were a Gift card, and I decided to make one for the new challenge over at I ❤️ ProMarkers. It was great fun - and easy! You can find a tutorial for the gift card here.
My birthday card is kept in violet/ pink tones, suitable for a little girl, as is the image Kiki with Cupcake from Little Miss Muffet.
Of course the image is coloured with ProMarkers.

The opening/ closing of the card:

When you open the card a gift card holder slides out:

The bow on the card is also made with the Envelope Punch Board.
You can find a tutorial for the bow here.
