Smile, lets celebrate

Hi, every now and then I find some old stamps I haven't used in years, and those giraffes is one(two) of those stamps. They are so stinking cute, so I have no idea why I haven't used them?!!


Both the giraffe and the background is colored by watercolor, I love how you can build layers whit the watercolor...

 Have a great day,

CSI case 209: Happy

As I said in the last post Im a special investigator over at CSI, and this is my take on case 209.


My oldest son fell in love with these bump boats when we where on a smal cozy theme park in beautiful Hardanger; Mikkelparken and spent hours cruising around in one.
                                            a favorite these days is random splater with glimmermists, and gesso...
                                                     There is a few layers with embellishments hihi
                                      My background chevron paper is from Canvas Corp, I love those paper, thick and take mix media so well. And the color is so clean and nice.
Have a nice day.

CSI case 208

Talk about long lazy summer.
Its been over a month since last post, and all I can say is, I really been into that summer-lazy-days with my kids...
But now I'm (almost )back on track.School start on thursday, and I cant wait hihi...

Aaaanyway..
Im a special investigator at CSI this month.

Here are the case-file:

And this is my take:
The picture is of my funny daugther, when we are on a "minicruise" 
She got a ballon shaped as a heart from a clown(kid-entertainer) onboard, and it was perfect as a frame.

  An old Magnolia boat-stamp came in handy for this LO
 I just love how all of those random dots of gesso and glimmermist look together
Have a nice day

Our theme; By the sea

 Hi, today I am ready for a  new CCB collab, here is my video, hope you like it.

This is my take, a bright layout with my oldest son Jens then 6 years old, now it's is 3 days from his 10th birthday...Time flies...
Some close-ups:
Cool and the bobles is both diecuts. on cool I used c flute to make it.
                                        Crackle medium is so much fun, thats a medium I have loved for year. So cool when I put some mist on it after it dried,  the mist just runs down the cracks and make it pops.
The bright beautiful red starfish and crab is both a fuzzycut from a paper from CCB

                        CCB have a grate selection on clothpins in different colors.

Sommeren er her med kake... Summer's here with cake..




Siste skoledag på tirsdag, og guttungen hadde med kake til klassen.
Jeg brukte noen andre farger enn Wilton sine denne gangen siden det står at de kan inneholde spor av nøtter. Og i klassen går det en med alvorlig nøtteallergi. Så fargene ble litt blassere enn de jeg har lagd tidligere. Men en blomstereng kan være litt mykere i fargene så det løste seg fint :D
Last day of school on Tuesday, and my son wanted a cake to bring to his class.
I used some other colors than Wilton 's this time since it says on the box they may contain traces of nuts . And in my son's class there is a boy with severe nut allergy . Then the colors were a little paler than the ones I've made ​​before. But a field of flowers may be a little softer in color so that worked out just fine: D

Jeg har lagd denne blomstereng-kaken tidligere og, da hadde jeg fondant-bokstaver på. men siden jeg ikke hadde mere fondant igjen, og jeg ikke ville bruke marsipan, så fikk jeg scrappet litt pynt..
Og det erjo aldri feil å scrappe litt..
I've made this flowery cake earlier and , I had fondant - letters on it. But since I had no more fondant left, and I did'nt wanted to use marzipan , I got to scrap some decoration ..
And it's never wrong to scrap a little ..

Muffinsene i boksen er glutenfrie,
The muffins in the box is gluten-free.


Kortene som ligger framfor kaken er de små gavene lærerne fikk.
Du kan se bilder og link til video med framgangsmåte her.
The cards in the front of the cake is the small gifts my kids teachers got.
You can see pictures and a link to my process-video here.


Nå skal vi ut å kose oss i bassenget,ha en fin dag.
Now its pool-time, have a great day

Evighetskuler er favoritten din/jawbraker is your favorite

                                                      This is my take on case 203 over at CSI
                      The story is, my oldest sons favorite candy is jawbraker, hi always choose them for his Saturday-treat. (In Norway saturday is our candy-day, we have candy and watch movies)
                                              I just love how cool they look on the inside.
            Both my boys loves fruit and berries, so I have no problem with the jawbraker as a snack,
                                                      I know its pure sugar and E.. hihi

Sommeren er her... Summer is here....


Hver sommer (og jul) lager jeg en liten ting til ungenes lærere.
En liten oppmerksomhet for å vise at vi setter pris på de. Og ønske de en god ferie

Every summer (and Christmas) I make a little something to my kids teachers.

Its just a small something to let them know that we appreciate the work they do. And wishing them a happy hollyday.


Alt papir, bortsett fra gullkartongen, er fra Canvas Corp Brand,
All the paper, besides the gold, is from Canvas Corp Brand.
                                             Bladranken er stanset ut med en dies fra Rayher.
                                                   The vine is a diecut from a rayher-dies
                       På baksiden er det plass til å skrive en liten hilsen og en liten kjærlighet.
                   On the back  its a small tag to write something and a lollypop to the teacher.
                       God sommar, siden jeg bor på Stord, Norges største nynorsk-kommune.
                      God sommar is Nynorsk (in Norway we have to written language,and where we                     live they use Nynorsk) and if we translate it to English its good summer, or                              Have a great summer. We say God sommar when we leave school and work                                    the last day before our summer- vacation.
                                                 Disse glimmermistene og glam'en har jeg brukt:                          
                                                 Glimmer Glam - Luck O' the Irish
                                               Glimmer Mist - Dazzling Diamonds
                                                      Glimmermist Tropical pink

Vil du se hvordan jeg laget disse?
Want to see how I made them?


Ha en fin dag
Have a great day
