The Nook DT Call, new classes and a layout

If you wonder where I have been for the last few weeks, I have had vacation. And when I have vacation I have a tendency of beeing super slack: I have neglected my garden, the laundry - and this blog. I have another week off, so I might neglect the said parts again *lol*

We came home from totally fun Copenhagen, Denmark, on Friday, and was planning on doing some more fun stuff this weekend. But then, in the afternoon, the terrible news about the terror actions in Oslo hit us. I was watching the news about the bombing, when the first messages about the shooting at Utøya came - it was an absolute surrealistic situation. I completely recalled the feelings I had when I, live, saw the second plane crash into Twin Tower at 9/11 - I could just not believe my own eyes.

My thoughts today goes to all the families who has lost family members, to all the people who have lost friends and relatives, and to all people affected my this horrible actions, made by one crazy man...

With this terrible actions taking place in the the neighbourhood, it some way feels wrong to introduce some happy, exciting news. But life will go on, and we will not be broken by one man's horrid doings, so I'm writing this post in respect to all those who fight for our rights to live in a peaceful society!

GD at Once Upon A... Sketch - and a Give Away!

My fellow DTer Nadia Cannizzo, who runs the challenge blog Once Upon A ....Sketch, has invited the whole Nook DT to guest design for the July 1th sketch. I totally love Nadia's sketches, and have participated in most of the challenges so far, so it is an honor to guest design here.



Here is the July 1th sketch:



Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long.


My take on it:




Don't you love the sketch and journaling criteria? Head over to the blog to see more, bot the DT work and what the GDs did, and to se what the prizes are.



The Nook GDs have all used kits from My ScrapbookNook for their examples, most of them the July Kit.

Play it again, Sam!

I don't know why this phrase just popped up in my head, maybe because I have a brand new MyScrapbooknook Kit on my desk and because I have played and played and played?

I promise, those Ocober Afternoon papers called my name - for me, a fuzzy handcutter, it's perfect. Actually it's perfect for those who don't handcut, too. Let's have a look:





I bought some stickers and buttons from the ad on section, too. Let's start with a layout without any fuzzy hand cutting (DS8 and his best buddy):





What do you say, isn't this kit tempting?

Fuzzy hand cutting - me likey!

Anyone who knows me would say "Naaaah, she doesn't have the patiente to do fuzzy hand cutting". Ha, ha - they are wrong. I looooove hand cutting! I don't have the patiente to color stamepd images, or to layer, but it's something about hand cutting I like - reading the patterns in the papers, making matching embellies etc etc.

The June Kit at MyScrapbooknook had some Lily Bee papers that was perfect for cutting. So I cut:






Each month we have a sketch challenge at the Nook. This layout is my example for the June sketch uber talented Nadia Cannizzo, my fellow DT'er, made for us.  We'll release the July Sketch on July 7th so stay tuned: you never know if there is a prize involved, too!
