I had some of the challenges this week at 365 Cards undone, so I made them all today. Here they are:


Money holder



Gift card holder


Tri-fold card


Pop-up card


Score a pattern card

Since I’m not a cardmaker, this week has been so fun and I really look forward to the challenge tomorrow! Usually I just make the cards I need for some occasions, but now I have some ready made, just put in sentiments or other text in!

My first challenge for the members at CropStop forum is now up, read more about it here!

This is my sample for it


Basically you have to make a front page for an album or a CD-cover with the title The Soundtrack of My Life. The background paper is Bazzill, stamped, embossed and inked, the flourishes BossKut and I have used various stamps, ribbons and flowers. The alphas are also cut with the Gazelle, the font is called Commodore and is very similar to QuicKutz Studio. Some jewelry parts are also included.

So, that was the weekly challenge which starts off today, last week it was all about stitching and I made this LO:


Webster’s Pages are among my favorite papers,  but my all time favorite isn’t even printed, it’s handmade papers from Svartvik, which I frequently use for journaling and photo mats. Many of them are so smooth you can run them through your inkjet printer, yet they have a lovely texture that really makes them stand out! This paper has inclusions of grass. Prima flowers, a skeleton leaf, some Panduro epoxy stickers and cuts from the Gazelle. Clock chipboard is Heidi Swapp, while the alpha chippy is MM painted with Ranger Crackle paint and the other alphas are MME. The ticket is cut with the Gazelle, and is sized to fit the ticket stamp from Stellas.

There’s a monthly sketch, too! Yep, we’re having fun all the time! Here’s my LO for the March sketch:


The patterned papers are HOTP, from the Retro stack. The photo mats are mulberry paper and the title and flowers are cut with the Gazelle – the BossKut die is called Wildflowers – the ribbons are all from Reasonable Ribbons. Some jewelry parts just happened to be attached, too… That is something I use a lot, as I still have them in my stash since I made jewelry (I still do, but not very often!).

We have a lot of fun at CropStop, come in and join us!

If I have counted right, things will happen from 8.00 pm Friday to 4.00 pm Saturday, EDT which makes it all night long… Join in and have fun!

We’ll have challenges, how-to’s and games going on all the time.

OK, Swedish times… From 02.00 on the night between Friday and Saturday to 22.00 on Saturday evening the DT will be online. Don’t miss it!
