Today's blogpost is about our trip to London, and of course Hochanda!

We met Joanne and Michelle from Hochanda in Holland at the KreaDoe exhibition. They visited our stand and asked if we wanted to do a show with them. Of course I said yes!

When the date came closer, my nerves were not in place....

Then - finally - it was time to leave!

Monday morning, tired on the plane, but so HAPPY!
It's fun when you fly to London, it takes two hours but you only change the clock one hour :)

When we arrived at Victoria Station I called Suha from Swedish House Crafts! I needed some feedback, and some pep talk... I was already soooo nervous. I was so afraid  our products would be totally wrong for the english market.

We spent rest of the Monday in London. We had the best ice cream EVER!!! They even formed it as a flower!

We chose to travel with the Underground! That was super! So fast and easy!

When you never have been to England there are some "must see", and since this was Lukas first time I had to show him! Harrods is a FANTASTIC beautiful must see!

When we had walked 22 000 steps we went to the hotel for a sleep.


Next day we started with the Underground again!

It is so cool with all the tunnels :)

King's Cross was so beautiful! This could be a really nice rubber stamp!

Finally we arrived in Oundle at Hochanda!
Today we were only supposed to leave some samples and products but they showed us around!

This is the first time I have been to a studio! And it made me even more nervous!

But Lukas stayed cool :) I think he is a natural!

After some hours we walked to our hotel in Oundle. Oundle was a really nice, old village with beautiful buildings.

And this was our hotel room! A small cottage :) And cold...


Next morning it was time for a seminar! They were telling us about their company, showing us around and teaching us about the studio. Which camera to look at, what to do, what you aren't allowed to say or do... The seminar was completed with 5 min test filming!

This is Lukas and Matt! 
After this shoot, even Lukas was nervous!

On the Thursday we went to Peterborough! WHAT A NICE TOWN!!!
We had to buy some clothes for Lukas, and som make up :)

In Peterborough there is a beautiful Cathedral. We got some nice pictures from it!

We also found a very good Stekhouse!!!!

No words need to be said!

Then finally the day had come!
I WAS SO NERVOUS, SO THEY ASKED ME TO GO TO GREEN ROOM - I was making Lukas nervous! (And them too, I suppose!)

The feeling when you watch your son on TV...

And the show was GREAT!!!! What a response!!!! So many items got sold out!
On the FIRST show!!! The was a queue on the telephone all the time!
I can not descibe how happy and proud I was!
Lukas and Leonie was a great team!

The second show was easier for Lukas. Now he knew what it was about, and he were more relaxed. And I was still in the Green room....
This time it was Lukas and Charlie!

Saturday morning it was time for our last show! I was afraid that we would't wake up in time, so I went up at 4 am :)

Lukas did a great show with Yiannis!

Then it was time to leave!
They have these great armchairs that looks like a throne, and of course we had to take some pictures! 

Here I am - sooooo relieved!!!!

And the star from Gummiapan!
Again, a cool picture from the Underground!

An evening picture taken from the London Bridge!

We took the train from St Pancras Station to Gatwick.

And finally we went home - exhausted, tired, relieved but SO HAPPY!

Studentkort / Graduation cards

I Sverige slutar man skolan vid 18-19 års ålder och tar då studenten.
Jag har gjort ett antal studentkort som inspiration för både inbjudningar samt uppvaktning.

In Sweden when school is out at around 18-19 years of age we call it "Studenten".
I have made some cards that work for both invitations and celebration.

Jag har använt:
I have used:



Marinblå: enfärgat, prickigt, rutigt

I övrigt har jag använt halvpärlor, band, pearlmaker och guldpapper ur mina gömmor.
I have also used bling, ribbon, pearlmaker and gold papers form my stash.

Valentine cards


Today I like to show you some cute valentine day cards. Two cards they're very colorful and full of love.
Heute zeige ich euch zwei süße Valentinstagskarten. Es sind zwei bunte Karten die voll Liebe stecken.

The first card is with a cute dinosaur from Gummiapan. I like to look one dinosaur to the other, so I have to make a reflection of the left dinosaur. I like the way it looks.

Die erste Karte ist mit dem süßen Dinosaurier von Gummiapan. Ich wollte gerne, daß ein Dinosaurier den anderen ansieht und so habe ich den linken Dinosaurier gespiegelt. Ich mag was daraus entstanden ist. 

The second card is sweeter then the first one. Why? Because there are cupcakes on the second card. Very sweet cupcakes.

Und die zweite Karte ist süsser als die erste. Warum? Na ganz einfach. Auf der zweiten Karte sind Cupcakes. Sehr süsse Cupcakes.

These are the materials I used:
- Dino

Hope you enjoy the cards. 

See you soon.
Bis bald.

Album till Alla hjärtansdag

Stjärnalbum till alla hjärtansdag

Idag visar jag er två stjärnalbum i två olika storlekar som man kan ge till någon på alla hjärtans dag.
Today I will show you two staralbums that I made in two different sizes, that you can give to someone on valentinesday.

Jag har använt mig av Gummiapans vita papper och kvistpapper. Motiven har jag färglagt med copic.
I have used Gummiapans white paper and kvistpapper. I have colored the images with copic.

Storleken på det rosa albumet är 4*4 tum. The size of the pink album is 4*4 inches.  
Stämplarna jag använt till detta album är: The stamps I have used for this album is:
13100203 Kamera
15090205 Robin
11020305 Hjärtformad ballong
13020207 Alla hjärtans dag
16090315 DU ÄR GULD VÄRD
10080506 Du gör mig lycklig

16020103 Stort öppet brev med hjärta
15050102 Streckad banner
16020117 DYLAN
15090204 Bobbie

När jag arbetade med Glasburken och Litet brev med öppet hjärta så maskade jag kring burken plus breven så att det skulle se ut som om burken är full med brev.
When I work on the Glasburk and Litet brev med öppet hjärta I masked around the jar and I mask several of the letters so it would look like as the jar is full of letters.

Mönsterpappret är från den rosa serien från gummiapan .
The patternpaper is from the ”rosa serie” at Gummiapan.
Alla motiv och texter har jag klippt ut för hand. Tycker det är ganska avkopplande.  
All the images and sentiments I have fuzzycut. I find that quite relaxing.

Storleken på det grönturkosa albumet är 4*6 tum. The size of the green turquoise album is 4*6 inches.

Stämplarna jag använt till detta album är: The stamps I have used for this album is:

 Förlåt för dessa bilder som är på fel håll.
 Sorry about these pictures that are in the wrong way. 

Alla motiv och texter har jag klippt ut för hand.  
All the images and sentiments I have fuzzycut.

Albumen kan man ställa upp till en stjärna när man vill titta på det, men när du fäller ihop det tar det mycket mindre plats.
You can put the albums in the shape of a star when you display it, but it folds together very small.
Ha det bra tills vi ses nästa gång.
Take care until we meet again.
