The Cardmaker+The Twinery bloghop

Hi everyone!
I hope that you have had a wonderful blog hop so far!

If you have hopped your way through the bloghop-list, you came to me from Penny Ward

We here at The Twinery are so excited to be joining up with CardMaker for this twine-tastic blog hop! Designers from both design teams will inspire you with projects created using our fabulous baker’s twine

CardMaker, featuring instructions for handcrafted greetings for every occasion, was introduced as the first major magazine devoted to the card-making craft in 2005. It remains the leading print-and-digital publication for card-making enthusiasts on the market and will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year. CardMaker is an Annie’s publication. Annie’s products — including magazines, books, kits and supplies, online classes and TV programming — are targeted to home and family interests, including crafts, nostalgia and home décor.

Since we dont celebrate Thanksgiving over here I made a card with a thank you note… perfect for a cute gift or as it is to a good friend!

Fler kort!

Jag har verkligen haft skoj när jag skapat kort åt GeFoto inför helgens stora bröllops och kalasmässa i Mariehamn.

Den här gången visar jag kort skapade med papper från reprint, och stämplar från Reprint och Skapa. Allt material finns att köpa hos GeFoto, och vill man titta och klämma på korten finns de redan till beskådan i deras butik.

Baby Girl!

På lördag är det bröllops- och Kalasmässa här i Mariehamn. Och jag har blivit tillfrågad att skapa lite kort till olika festliga tillfällen tillsammans med GeFoto.  Sånt är alltid kul, så på lördag 29/3 kl12-14 finns jag på GeFoto för den som råkar ha vägarna förbi och vill säga hej, och bli inspirerad.

kort3Kanske det är barndop på gång? Vi har flera olika alternativ som passar till ett barndop.

Här ett kort gjort med klippark och mönstrade papper från Reprint, Maja Design och Glitterpapper från Best Creations. Vill du kika närmre på kortet så finns det hos GeFoto redan.




Another wedding card…

Well I´m married since a long time ago, and I´m not invited to any weddings as I know of… but I know that I will have a demo sharing ideas how to make wedding, baptism, and birthday cards at a local store in about a week.

This card is made with a base and swirls cut with the Silhouette Cameo, and a reprint stamp, and flowers.. loads of flowers, and glitter glue 🙂



New love Maja Design

Häromdagen gjorde jag och min familj ett besök till det lokala sjukhuset där en familjemedlem var inlagd.
För att lite muntra upp gjorde jag ett litet kort att ta med tillsammans med en blomma.
Jag älskar verkligen Vintage Summer från Maja Design, de passar ypperligt till fina kort.

At home with sick kid…

These couple of days I have been at home taking care of a sick girl.  she is such a sweetheart, and one of the things she wanted to was to be creative with mommy. Who could say no to a request like that??

Not Me!

Well we did simple things… she painted with my Martha Stewart paints.. so I guess they are almost out. But she had fun… and she also used loads of my MME washi tapes… to paint and mask …. so I guess I could use some more washis too….

Me I was a bit more Clean and simple today.. Creating some cards…

Imperfection is Beauty

Card-Katarina-Damm-Blomberg-Katarina-Damm-Blomberg (1)I have created a card using the Pink Paislee Colorwash, and a double butterfly cut out with my digital cutter. The sentiment is from the  Imperfection is beauty  Donna Downey stamp set and the flowers are from Marianne Design.

The card was made as a birthday card, but I have changed my mind. I will keep it because I like it to much.

Have a Nice day!
Me, I think I will go out and do some recreation shopping 😉


Stats are interesting

Do you follow up on stats?  For me much of my work end up in stats… I´m a teacher, and test-scores, grades and so on is filed under a huge pile of statistics… and just a couple of days ago the Pisa Program for International Student Assessment was released about students taking the tests last year… not my students at this point… but since I´m an early grade teacher.. it´s also my work that is studied… how did I do creating a good base of knowledge to these kids… and well we can all learn something about it.

but there is also other stats…. like the one keeping track of my own blog…

Did you know that these pictures was the ones most clicked on last week…
