A bookmark to encourage reading

Today I´m up over at the Hobbyworld blog, sharing this bookmark I´ve made.

My daughter 8 years old, is having a hard time to read, and as an encouragement I made her this bookmark during the weekend, that she can use as a help to see where she is reading in her book.

She loved it, and asked me if she could get one that she could bring to school as well.

Making a Halloween set

Yesterday the #2 challenge for September was presented at the Hobbyworld blog.

Its such a fun challenge, make a set of at least three different things to match each other…

My inspiration piece was a set for the Halloween party, a card, a treat-bag, and a place card.

All made with loads of Spellbinder dies.

I had so much fun making these,,, and I actually did them during a Skype scrap-get-together with my friend Petra.

Happy Days!

Hi!

Have you seen the new Spellbinders Dies, that will ship this August?  They are absolutely gorgeous!!

I got the embossingfolder E3D-010 in a DT-package just the other day, and I had to try it out right away!

Isn´t it beautiful? This Card is Shown over at the Hobbyworld blog today..

To enhance the embossed print, I have rubbed the surface with some Distress Inks, and it made a huge difference in bringing out the beautiful details.

Facebook stole my time…. part 1

Hi!
Have you noticed how Facebook is stealing your time? Well at least it´s stealing mine…

This past month I have been in a real bad scrap-breakdown… All my energy has been focused on my work.. and my health, well at least to get a healthy portion of exercise..

Most of my updates have been on Facebook, and it´s weird how easy it is to forget about your blog….

well….

lets take The month of April in review shall we?!

walking in a winter wonderland…..

vinterThis is my favorite time of the winter, it´s almost Christmas, the snow have been falling for several days and we are now living in a winter wonderland.

yesterday me and my family enjoyed the beautiful weather, and I actually took a picture of the beautiful landscape we are living in…  Whats it like in your part of the world? sunny, warm, cold, lots of snow?

well let´s talk something besides weather for a while…

its almost Christmas… in less than two weeks the school is having a break for Christmas, and I´m the one always doing everything last minute… there is some ornaments and lights up.. but the rest of the decorations . they are still in their boxes. the only thing I actually have been doing is Christmas cards and tags… and earlier this week I had this tag up over at the Hobbyworld blog.

dec-tävling2-Katarina-Damm-Blomberg

 

I´ve used a cute emboss folder from Spellbinders, and my favorite gelatos and glitter emboss powder to get the cute effects. I’ve also tied some of the cute new Platinum Shimmer Twine from the Twinery around the tag.

I hope that you will have a wonderful weekend with time to create :)
