Happy Birthday To Me!

Wiiii, today it´s my birthday...no not mine personally BUT it´s my blog birthday today!
Exactly 3 years ago I made my first blogpost here on the blog.I wasn´t verry activ the firts 2 years, think I made just as many posts as I have done for this year allready...giggle...

Even if I have been scrapbooking all this time I didn´t get mutch time for it before, it´s more lately I really feel that I can take time for it now and really do what I love on my spare time. I also think that after the separation from the kids father I finally have got my routines in my home with my kids when they are here and so on.The kids also got bigger, they mostly want to be with friends nowdays and all of this is making me more time of my own.Time that I can spend as I want to, even if the kids are at home it´s easyer now.
And it fells really good because life without crafting would kill me!..giggle..

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my 3 years old blog today!!
I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you that has chosen to follow me and like my blog and what I create! You are great!! Big hugs to you all.

So pop over in the weekend and  maby I will have a small goodibag for one of you who visit me.

Big hug to all of you!!

Make your own mini roses

We have Easter Holliday here in Sweden right now. All the kids are home from school and they are with friends all day long.They sleep ower and so on so there is not that mutch time for the mother in the house to just sit down and make some scrapbooking...giggle...

But today I had to work a little bit for Kristinas and when I was finish with that I just thought that I should try to make my own mini roses.Just like the ones I always buy.
I saw on Youtube a video where they did handmade roses that we always buy so I thought I try to do my own...
HERE is the video if you would like to se it.
Sometimes it can be hard to find, or if I don´t have the colour home that I need.Then,I MAKE MY OWN!

I will show you how I made it...
Aren´t they cute?? Just like the one I use to buy, but with a little bit different paper...
I simply used left ower cardstock pieces...
This is what I need, mini retro flower punch, glue and cardstock...
I cut out 4 of the colour I want on the rose and one in grean who should be the leaf....
On one of the pink ones I cut of two of the leafs....
Then I fold the leafs in the middle , as in the picture, and then squeeze them together...
I put some glue on the end of the flower leaf...
..and put it together...I hold it together untill the glue has dryed.
With the next two pink flowers, i fold all the leafs on the flowers in the middle and put some glue in the middle of the flower...
And simply put it together.With all of them as I put them together i sqeeze them together and shape them untill I´m happy with the result....
You can se on the picture how I build the flower...
With the last pink flover i don´t fold the leafs in the middle, I just fold the leafs up a little bit so it wont be so flat.And then put it togehter wirh some glue in the middle...
I do the same with the green flower and then put it together so the green flower will become the grean leaf on the roses.
Tada!!! A finished little minirose. It´s about 1-1,5 cm wide.
Hope you liked it!!
Thanks for stoping by.

A card for a boy.

I don´t usually make so many cards for boys but I got some left over papers from Bo Bunnys paper.
This papers comes from Kristinas scrapbooking  and also the flowers and stickles I have been using.
When I saw this paper I just had in my head the perfect stamp for the card and that was Edvin running around and catching butterflies.
So I made a card for a boy this time!

Make your own flowers...

Some days ago when I was making a card I use my spellbinder " Fleur De Lis ", and when I had cut it out and emboss it  I got all this smal paperparts from all the little gaps and I thougt that the bigger ones look likes leafs...so I made a flower of it.....
Just click on the pictures to see them larger...
I saved all the bigger parts that looked like leafs....
I cut out a circle about 1 cm diameter...
Took my glue pen and just took some glue in the end of the "leaf" and then put it together around the circle...
When they all where in place I just adjust them so they was close together like in the picture...
...and in the end I just put a pearl on it and tada! Your flower is finish!
Isn´t it cute??
So start saving all the junk from your spellbinder and make flowers of it! ;o)

Another Lo....

I made a Layout again for Kristinas Scrapbooking.This time it´s with my daughter.
This Lo actually was a little bit hard to do, maby it´s because I was working with colours that I usually don´t work with I don´t know but NOW it´s finally finish.Think it turned out ok even if I still fel new to making lo´s.But it´s fun and it´s a challange for me to make them since I otherwise almost just make cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
