Only a few days left until our vacation, but I refuse to stress! Instead I've been enjoying myself making this card for a young lady whose birthday is coming up soon. It'll be my entry for the first challenges at Anonyme Scrappere and Wild Orchid Challenge.

I'm having another go at the sketch at 2S4Y this week. Yeah, yeah, I know I shoud be working on the vacation book, but come on, the sketch is a joy to work with! And with all the fun summer colory papers I found in my stash the other day, who could resist! ☺

Det går litt for sakte, så nå planlegger jeg en kjempeinnsats de neste dagene. Får håpe det gir resultater!
One less day until the vacation and this is how far I've gotten with the vacation book. It's going too slow, so I'm planning major effort the next few days. Let's hope it pays!

De siste årene har jeg hatt store ambisjoner om å lage feriebok, noe som har resultert i mange lekre notisbøker, sørgelig tomme for både ord, bilder og minner. Men i år har jeg et håp! Jeg fant nemlig denne ideen i InkyWings bloggen. Slik ser min feriebok ut foreløpig:
Tanken er altså at jeg lager ferdig boken før jeg reiser. På turen kan jeg da bare skrive dagens hendelser rett inn i boka. Jeg vil også lage sider med lommer til å samle kvitteringer, billetter, brosjyrer og andre ting i.
"Boken" er en A5 ringperm, slik at når jeg (en vakker dag) får printet bildene, kan jeg lage nye sider å sette de inn i permen, uten å måtte lage et helt nytt album! Jeg syns ideen er genial, men funker det??
My vacation is coming up soon and I can't say how wonderful it's gonna be. I'm so looking forward to getting in the car and drive south towards (hopefully) sun and warmth! The last few years I've had great plans about making a vacation book, which so far has resulted in numerous fancy notebooks, sadly free from both words, pictures and memories. But I have a hope this year. You see, I found this idea in the InkyWings blog. This is how my vacation book looks for now. The idea is that I make the book before I go. Then on the trip I can just write down the events straight into the book. I'll also make pages with pockets where I can keep reciepts, tickets, flyers and other stuff. The "book" is an A5 binder, so that when I (some day) print the pictures, I can make new pages and put in the binder without having to make a whole new album! I think the idea is brilliant, but will it work??

Happiness is to love and be loved, is the text on the stamp from Stempelglede. I thougt it was appropriate on a card for my darling husband on our 11th anniversary. Love you, hon'!

Another suprising birthday party. This time for a man who is becoming an adult but is in touch with his "inner child"! ☺ For the first time (I think) the card isn't folded, but I thought it worked out just fine! ☺

Since I recjected my first attempt on a summer card, I didn't have much time to make a new one, but this is what I ended up with. And in the hurry I forgot to take a picure of the card, so I apologize for the poor quality of the picture. It was taken with a mobile phone camera in sunshine with the card in a clearbag.

I made this card originally by order from the sketch in challenge #30 at Sketchy Colors. But when it was done I didn't think it was right for the recipient and not good enough for the challenge, so It'll go in the tiny pile of cards I hopefully (eventually) will sell.

Dette kortet er laget etter skisse nummer 100 hos min favoritt inspirasjonskilde, Kortskissen.
Some people claims that clutter on the work desk is proof of a creative person. That might be, but when there's so much clutter that there's not even room for the paper trimmer, it doesn't get very creative. But now it's tidy and the creativity can flow freely again! ☺ This card is made after sketch #100 at my favorite source of inspiration, Kortskissen.

Men jeg kan ikke ta æren for produktiviteten helt alene. Det er enkelt å være kreativ når skissene hos bl.a. 2S4Y, Sketchy Colors og Kortskissen er så herlige å jobbe med! Dagens titt er altså laget etter skissen i utfordring #30 hos Sketchy Colors. Det blir også mitt bidrag til Scrappekammerets utfordring #10.
I won't claim that one is related to the other, but I've got a cold and in two nights I've made no less than five cards all together! If someone's thinking "now, that's nothing", then know this: I usually spend several days on just one card!
I can't take all the credit for the productivity alone, though. It's easy to be creative when the sketches at 2S4Y, Sketchy Colors and Kortskissen (amongst others), are so wonderful to work with! Todays peek is made from the sketch in challenge #30 at Sketchy Colors. It's also my entry for challenge #10 at Scrappekammeret.

For my grandfather. A card for a man who has everyting and sees little. Details and small patterns were out of the question, I still couldn't help myself and put a little "bling" in the corner. The card is made after Laura's sketch #55 at 2S4Y this week.
