Hi there!!

Soo... I took some time off from scrapbooking this summer to think about what I really wanted with my scrapbooking and so on.
I have felt the past....6 monh,  at least , that it wasn´t that fun anymore and I had to figure out why since I do LOVE to scrapbook. I love my scraproom and all the fun stuff in it but still I didn´t felt like I wanted to really do something. It was sad....

So I took some time of this year from my dt comitment over the summer, and in the summer I almost didn´t do anything in my scraproom. We went out with our caravan and in the caravan I had put some coloring stuff with me, just in case. ;)

I didn´t toutch it much on our first trip more then with my brothers daughter who I tought how to diecut and also stamped a little bit with the stamps I bought just for her earlier. But that was about it, didn´t still felt like I really  wanted to DO something.
Back home I didn´t do anything more than just look at it.

Then we went on our second trip with the caravan, just me and my hubby and in the evenings I started a little bit to color some stamps, diecut some small things with my left over papers and so on and felt, it IS fun and I want to do this! It was fun when I knew I could do just about what I wanted in that moment, when I could use what ever stuff  I wanted on my project without any rules and didn´t have to think about what I was alowed to use or not.

I havn´t been inspired lately with my dt jobb, to mutch rules from when I started the mission and to many things of what I couln´t or could use on my projects and so on so I decided to end my dt job. When you are no longer inspired or think the dt job you have is fun, you really should quit, and so I did. I have been there for 4 years and I have had A LOT of fun and I see my dt "moms" as really good friends of mine! And I hope that we still will be friends for a long time and I hope that their buisiness will continue to grow!

But, since things have changed from what I comitted to when I started I felt like it has taken away my inspiration bit by bit and when you feel like that you should not be in a design team. I think I am a person who really needs mostly "free hands" with my projects and that I can ad not just ONLY things that will be found in the store, I still think that the store will sell the products that I showcase because it is just small things I want to add, mostly it is stuff from the store of course. It´s not good for you and it is not good for the store if you don´t do "cute" stuff that people will like.

Of course rules and things changes over time and every time it does you have to think about if it still suits you and if you still want to be in the designteam. I really really LOVE to be in a design team but I want it to be fun and inspirational beacuse when I feel that inspiration I hope that it will show in the stuff I make for inspiration to. Of course it also have a lot to do with the products you get to work with, everyone who has a dt membership knows that. It´s like giving a cardmaker a bunch of PL stuff to work with and tell them to do PL instead of cards...giggle... you know what I mean...

I have 3 weeks left on my comitment at Idas Magasin and I hope that you will follow me my last three weeks there and I hope that you all will continu to visit Idas Magasins blog and store because they are really nice and cute people. :) <3 And I hope that this will explain to all of you who have asked me why I quit.
I really hope to maby have another dt mission in the future if someone will have me but time will tell. Right now I´m just happy as it is. <3

SO, now for some funnier stuff. I have a bunch of stuff that I haven´t have time to show you on my blog so maby I will update a little bit more. Who knows? ;)

I would like to show you today a weddingcard I made some time ago but I haven´t have time to show you and I hope you will like it. Weddingcards are really nice to do I think.
More love for the people! <3 <3 <3











Se you soon.

Dubbelt trifold shutter card tutorial ( svenska )

Idag tänkte jag visa en liten tutorial på hur man gör ett dubbelt trifold shutter card. Det ser avancerat ut men det är mycket mycket lättare än vad man tror!
Jag har här använt mig av en fiskars skärmaskin som räknar både inch och cm och ni kan hitta den HÄR och en Marta Stewarts scoring board som räknar inch och som är jättebra till sånna här projekt! Ni kan hitta den HÄR.


Du behöver 2 st cardstock som är 12x12 inch.
Man börjar med att skära till cardstock i bitarna: 2 st som är 12x6 inch, 2 st som är 8x6 inch och 2 st som är 4x6 inch.

Ta de långa bitarna 12x6 och lägg i din scoringboard och biga vid 2,4,8 och 10.
Gör detta på båda bitarna.


Ta 8x6 bitarna och biga vid 2 och 6 inch. Lägg sedan dessa åt sidan sålänge.

 Ta de båda bitarna som är 12x6 och lägg den vid  1 3/4 inch , sen skär du vid 2 inch ( första bigningen ) ner till sista bigningen på ditt ark. Vrid sen arket 180 grader och gör likadant på andra sidan så att du har skurit på båda sidorna så att säga. se bilderna under.



Sedan viker du papperet på det här viset:

Mitten delen "plockar du upp" och viker åt motsatt håll.


Då ska din bit nu se ut så här.
Här har du nu gjort ett vanligt trifold shutter card.
Här kan man nu stanna och dekorera kortet om man vill MEN vi ska göra ett dubbelt kort så därav gör vi 2 st likadana sånna här bitar.


När du gjort båda bitarna färdiga så har du 2 exakt likadana bitar som bild nr 1. Här tar du nu den vänstra biten och vänder på så att du får ändarna mot varandra, som på bild nr. 2.

Nu tar du de 2 andra bitarna som du la undan som vi bigade i början och viker de på detta sättet.



Ta de 2 minsta bitarna 4x6, de ska du nu klistra ihop de stora bitarna med så att allt sitter ihop.
Se bilderna under.

Skarvarna möts på baksidan.


Nu ska du kunna vika ihop kortet på detta viset.

Nu tar vi den sista delen som ska sättas fast ute i varje ände på kortet, den bit som är 8x6 och som vi bigade och vek innan.
Dessa klistrar du fast som på bilderna under, en på varje sida.




Nu är kortet monterat och du ska kunna vika ihop det såhär.

Vänd på kortet så ser det ut som på bilden under.
Den sista biten 4x6 sätter du fast på baksidan för att dölja skarven.


Nu är ditt kort klart och det ska se ut på det här viset när du viker upp det. Perfekt om man vill sätta foton i osv.


Nu är det bara att dekorera kortet efter tycke och smak!








Ha det gott!
