Guest Designer DYSU.




I won top 3 and was then picked as a guest designer over at 'DYSU'

(do you stack up?)

The challenge this week

(and it was a challenge for me!)

is to make a project using the provided

digital image from Sassy Studios,

using theme


My Least favourite colour of choice,

and I was a

'digital image virgin'!


This card Sat deep inside!

(translated from the great Nowgian language),

I'm not too unhappy with the results,

But it is far from my favourite project :O)

Working with this digital stamp has not scared me off them,

I will no doubt be giving them a go again :O)


I made this card using papers from

October Afternoon,

Measuring tape scraps from an

LO course I was on with the tallented Trine,

(thats where I got the idea to roll the tape up too)

Buttons and apple brad from my bits and bobs box.

Alfabet Chipboard from sassafrass.

I have sewn around the circle of vintage green bazzil with my machine

and I used distress reinkers to paint the image.


I have so many projects on the go at the moment that I havn't had time to be posting things here but expect a wave of them soon ;OD

Thank you so much for all of your comments,

I love reading them.

Almost the weekend folks,

Have a good one!

Hugs Nina xx

ps. Can someone help me...

I don't use double spacing when I am writing this post in draft,

yet when I actually post it the spacing is all over the joint!

A little annoying me thinks,

I'm sure it will be a non-brainer quick fix,

but I can't seem to figure it out.... :O(


  1. I love it, Nina! It is a very different style for you but it's right up my street! A big thumbs up from me!!

    Hope life is treating you well honey! I've missed seeing you so I've put you on my blog list to keep a beady on you, lol!!!

    I know what you mean about the spacing - I fixed it by making sure I have the right spacing selected when typing up the post. Hope that helps!

  2. eye! (It makes the sentence make sense!!)

  3. Herlig kort, Nina. Kult med målebåndene. Stilig med sømmen rundt motivet. Kos deg i helgen:) Klem

  4. SÅ stilig, Nina - du fiksa utfordringen glatt - selvom den "sat deep inside" som du så fint skrev! ;)

    Nå må vi få til å treffes snart igjen altså - vi kunne jo prøvd å få til en "skravlekveld" om ikke annet? :)

    God helg til deg! ♥
