And I have fallen head of heals in love with her stamps.
They are so perfect.

Never thought that day would come,

And yet again... a card....lol

Todays card is another twisted easel card. Totally fallen in love with
these cards. Got to do some youtubing tonight
and find more ways of doing easel =)
As you might see if you click on my card I
am seriously struggling with my coloring.
Even when the image is embossed the black still bleeds =(

So question for you all,
pros and cons of copics and promarkers.
I have promakers myself, like them, but theres just something odd.
And with the price of promarkers over here,
copics would be SKY high for me...lol

Any tips and tricks on using promarkers?

Well if you wanna join me,
email me at l.a.nikolaisen at gmail dot com.
And I will link to you and your project =)

Oh and please leave me a note if you do send me a mail,
as google can be veeeery kind and send stuff to my junkmail
without even letting me decide...lol

29 days and counting down =)

Today is a lonely day =(
My darling fiance left on a weekend trip,
and me and my son are home alone.
Really funny how fast you can miss someone.
And I know for sure I will feel lonely when I go to sleep tonight.
But thankfully he will be back sunday =)
And hopefully the weekend goes by quickly =)
As we are gonna go visit my sister tomorrow.

Well for todays project there are some bookmarks.

These are for now without a sentiment, cause I am gonna use
the KinderstampO sentiments on these as well =)
Was so afraid that they had gotten lost,
but noooo.
Jess had some other plans.
She has made something for me, and I am soooo excited =)
Well for these bookmarks I just cut two 2x5 pieces of cardstock,
glued them together and started decorating.
On the flower ones I used Dusty Concord and
Vintage Photo distress ink by Tim Holtz.
On the Tilda one I only used Vintage Photo.
The flowers are from a set by Panduro.
Tilda stamp is bought at Tre'l in Bodø =)
Used glossy accents from Ranger on all of the flowers =)

These bookmarks are entered into a contest over here at Ett trykk =)

Hope you like it =)

And if you wanna join me on my quest, feel free to email me at
l.a.nikolaisen at gmail dot com and i will happily
link to you and your project =)

30 days and counting down =)

Ok 30 days left and my second day on this blogging quest =)
And I have to say so far so good.
Actually learned something new about my blog as well today...lol
Been seeing people adding posts that didnt go up until a certain
date, and couldnt figure out how on earth that happened.
Buuuuut today I finally figured it out =)
So if I know I will have a busy day some of the days
of this blogging quest, then I can make my post the day
befor and scedule it to post the day after... YAY =)

Well enough about this silly girl learning new things...lol
Here is my project for today.

This is a clutch card I have made to enter into
the Simply Magnolia Challenge =)
Simply Magnolia was earlier Nederlandse Magnolia Challengesblog.
But the lady that had it couldnt devoted the time
she wanted to so she passed it on.
And it is now situated in UK =)
So this is my giftcard purse/bag =)

Hope you like it.

And remember... Wanna join me on this quest,

31 days and counting down =)

OK first of OMG!!!!!
Only 31 days left until I am a married woman.
So I have decided to do a little countdown here on my blog.
I will try (and yes I say try, due to alot left to plan) to post a new project on my blog every day until the day befor our wedding.
These projects will be girly, pink, bridal, love or wedding related.
That will be up to what mood I am in,
but for this there will be no guys stuff.
This will be all for me =P
And with things I like =)

And if anyone wants to join me, feel free to email me
at l.a.nikolaisen at gmail dot com
And I will link to you for that days post.

Unfortunatly due to the big expences that a wedding is,
this won't have any blogcandys.
But maybe one day after the wedding a candy will show up on my blog =)

So for todays post here is my little girly card.
And the sentiment will be added when I get my KinderstampO stamps =)

And as well the 9th of june is my 30th birthday. So that post will for sure be something birthdayish =)
If there are any other with this date or any of the other dates,
shout out to me on my mail and I can link you for that day =)

Hope you will enjoy these girly inspiration days =)

tirsdag 17. mai 2011

But here is my creations.
This is a little journaling book that our wedding guests can write in =)
And there isnt much ribbon, but there is a little ribbon bow.

do =) Had a bunch of fun, but been a wee bit blank today...lol
Might it be to much scrapping yesterday...lol

Well this is it =)

This one will be for my little sister.
She has her birthday in august, and I found that i could do this one now =)
Sentiment will be added when I get my little package from the states....
Sooooooo crossing my fingers it will be here tomorrow =)

Then I can have something to look forwards to when I get home
from the hospital.
They are gonna check out the lump in my neck tomorrow.
So crossing my fingers that it isnt anything bad.
Don't really think I want to know if it is anything bad,
specially now. Only a month and 10 days from my weddingdate.
Well I am sure it aint anything =)

My Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day Challenge #7

Having soooo much fun with these challenges over at
My Pink Stamper. So joined in yet another one.
This was just soooo perfect.
Gave me a kick in the behind to get this page done.
Still got some more that I am making, but
not really sure how I am gonna do them yet.
This is for a good childhood friend of mine,
that is having a baby =)=)=)=)
Was so happy when she told me, I even started crying at work...lol

Well here it is =)

Totally over happy that she is having a baby and sooo happy I am so privileged
that I get to make things for her =)

Hope you like it =)

My Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day Challenge #6

And i decided to join in another on of the challenges over
at My Pink Stamper.
Getting to show of alot of the wedding stuff now.
And totally loving it.
Wasnt gonna asemble these until the day befor the wedding,
but decided that it would be perfect for this challenge.
Even tho my writing stinks i really do love how these turned out =)
The little tag with the heart on, might be getting a little bit more,
once i get my little package from the states =)=)=)
Time will show =)

And I just noticed that my lighting is horrible =(
But oh well, this is it =)

My Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day Challenge #5

Here is my entry for the fifth challenge over at My Pink Stamper =)

This is a cardstock frame that i have painted with acryllic paint, then i used my beloved distress ink in vintage photo on it and coated it with decoupage glue to seal it all.
The i added a simple flower with a brad in the middle, and a pretty little butterfly to make it special =)
This frame is what i am gonna use to put a picture of me and my little sister,
she is my bridesmaid =)

So now i do really hope this flower and butterfly is 3-d enough =)
And it is a anything but project =) As it is a frame and not a card or a layout =)

Why I give you a hug =)

As some might have noticed on the few comments that i have found time to leave these last two weeks or so.
I always leave you my hug =)
Well I really want to explain why I decided to do this,
and maybe in the prossess inspire someone else to do the same =)

So this hug goes out to you all.
And here is the story behind my hugs.

I have always been a person of many feelings,
and I always show them off very easily.
So this hug is just me giving you one,
cause you never know when you might come across someone
that really really needed that hug.
Now I'm not saying go hug every person on the street,
as that would not be a safe thing to do.
But online you can always easily give away one of
your viritual hugs.
And always ALWAYS keep a hug close by,
cause you never know when someone you know might need
one from you.
And there is always warmth and love behind my hugs,
viritual or real life they still mean alot.
And giving them to all of you is my way of saying
My hug for you means I care =)

So biiiiiiiig hug to all of you out there =)

Feel free to borrow my hug and pass it on.
