I am really enjoying getting to play with things I have neglected and haven't had the time to use, one of my things is to use things much more weather that be ribbons, images, flowers they are all going to get used now, I have made this card for a special lady who helped me out a few weeks ago but with the time of the year I just never had time to get her a Thank you done....

This image is called Faith and she is a digital version I love these as they are slightly shaded so it is a doddle to colours them, there is lots available now HERE, she has been coloured with markers and pencil, the papers were a gift as was this gorgeous ribbon from a special lady millions of miles away, thank you sweetie, I have added some die cut and pearl hearts, some Butterflies that I have added some Clear Gems too, the gorgeous mix of flowers are Curly RosesCherry BlossomsAster Daises15mm Open RosesLillies and Tea Rosebuds I have punched my Leaves, and yes you know me I have added lots of Stardust, the sentiment is from a PI stamp set...

Thank you so very much for looking today and any comments that you may leave, I appreciate each and every one of them, biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

How Many Days 'Til Spring??

Hello, everyone!!! I hope that you have been having a wonderful holiday season...but with the holidays over, my mind wanders to springtime!!! But I also know that there is much snow and ice to get through before that event happens...sigh!!!!

Nothing says springtime more than the lovely, bright flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts!! I have used a beautiful 1 3/8" Trellis Rose from the Blue Tone Set, surrounded by sweet, sweet, Sweetheart Blossoms and emphasized with a couple of Ivory Crown Pins. The horizontal is made with Shocking Pink Organza Ribbon. To finish the front of the card I added some Self Adhesive Pearls.

Christmas Basket with a Tutorial

Merry Christmas!
Just one day to go - at least here in Norway :)
Today I'll show you a Christmas Basket I made for one of my crafting classes this December.
It has a hexagon shape, and it's quite easy and fun to make, so I thought I'd even give you the tutorial on how to make it your self :)
The basket is of course embellished with beautiful items from Wild Orchid Crafts!

Embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts:

How to make this Christmas Basket:

This is what you’ll need:
1 Cardstock + 1 strip of size 4,5 x 30 cm
Designer paper
Edge puncher
Spellbinders circle or doily or something similar

Cut 6 squares of cardstock in size 10 x 10 cm.
Cut and fold like the template says:
Use the edge puncher on top of each part.

Cut 6 panels of designer paper in size 7 x 7,5 cm.
Cut as the template says:
Glue the pieces of designer paper on the parts of cardstock.
Glue the parts together so they become a hexagon shaped basket.

Construate a hexagon like this: Draw a circle with a radius of 4 cm. Mark a point on the circle, then a new point 4 cm from the first, a new one 4 cm from the second…and so on, until you have 6 points on the circle. Draw straight lines from point to point, until you have a hexagon. Cut out the hexagon, and glue it to the bottom of the baskets inside.

Punch out a Spellbinder shape and glue it underneath the bottom of the basket, as a plate.

Cut a strip of cardstock in size 4,5 or 5 x 30 cm.
Use the edge puncher on both sides of the strip.
Cut a strip of designer paper in size 2,5 x 30 cm, and glue it to the strip of cardstock.
Glue the handle to the inside of the basket.

The basket is now ready to be embellished!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year!

Christmas hugs from Lena Katrine

Saint Lucia's Day by Malin ~ Lillpiga

Saint Lucia's Day is the Church feast day dedicated to St. Lucy and is observed on the 13th of December. Its modern day celebration is generally associated with Sweden and Norway plus a few other contries. In traditional celebrations, Saint Lucy comes as a young woman with lights and sweets. It is one of the few saint days observed in Scandinavia. In some forms, a procession is headed by one girl wearing a crown of candles (or lights), while others in the procession hold only a single candle each.

I have made myself my own crown with candles. Saint Lucia's Day is one of the most beautiful days we have in Sweden and in almost every school and work place, there are a procession with singing girls. I have used wild roses, big roses and Organza Rose Trim from Wild Orchid Crafts.

For more inspiration by me, please visit my private blog!

Dont forget our challenge blog with new challenges every second monday with lovely flowers for the winner!

Here you can see how it usually looks in Sweden, just for today. :)
