Hi there!
Today I want to share my favourite christmascandy.
It´s mozartcandy!
You need almond icing, nougat and
some good chocolate.
You can use dark, light or white
chocolate- whatever you like!
I have tried both white chocolate
and some traditional brown.
I do prefer the white one, they are supertasty!
You can also see the recipe in the latest
issue of Magnolia Ink.

Roll the nougat to balls.
Take some almond icing and make a
flat piece that you wrap around the nougat ball.
Dip the balls into melted chocolate
and let it dry in normal temperature
before storing them in the fridge.
This candy are pefect gifs
or just to enjoy yourself!

Good Luck!

Happy birthday!

Tonight I have a birtdaycard for
 my father to share with you.
I´ve used Happy New Year Edwin
for this card, I think he suits many occations!




I have had a little break with my crafting.
Sometimes life goes in a different direction
and you just have to follow...
Anyway I really wanted to make something
special for my father so I pushed myself
to my craftingroom.
And it was great to sit down
and play with my beloved magnoliastamps!

I wish you all a great weekend.

Magnolia event part 2!

Hi again!
Here we go again...
I have so many good emories from Magnolias event
in Borås that I want to share with you.
So let´s start:
Here is Chris and Camilla H talking between
Chris workshops. Chris showed us some
good tips about brushes, thanks dear Chris!

 I have been a big admirer of Chris cards ever sence
she became the covergirl for Magnolia Inks
christmasissue 2009! And I can tell you that her cards
are even more amazing IRL!!!

Monique is my very talented teamie from Netherlands.
Here she showed her colouring.

She worked with a waterbrush.

Monique had inked up an aqrulic acetat with
dsitress ink pads and picked up the colour from there.
Debbie teached how to make beatiful
christmascards. She gave us a lot of good tips
and ideas aswell, just great to see her working!

Even if everyone is colouring the same image,
they all turns out different and with a personal touch.

Look! No, you don´t see wrong...there were even
men visiting the Magnolia Event, haha!
They were supporting their wifes in a lovely way.

Here are Alberto and his lovely mama Christina!
She is absolutely super! Though she didn´t know a
word English she supported her son all weekend.

Teacher Alberto!

Alberto is teaching what to do with the black pen:
Everyone who have been following his process

as cardmaker know that he is the king of shadows!
Just take a look at the photo here:

I have no words to describe this talented young man...
He is amazing! And beside his talent he is a very kind and
funny young man and I´m so happy to have met him!

Even some young artists joined Albertos workshop, how fun!

Alberto is writing a special greeting- for me!

Thanks to all of you who came and joined

us these days in Borås, it was really terrific!
So nice to talk to you and get a "face" to
names in cyberspace.
