Tardis, explosion box...

 When you are going to a fantastic girl's confirmation, and she likes   LOVE Dr.Who, you dont just show up with a ordinary congratulation-card.. Well I dont... I made a Tardis... And its a Tardis thats explods!!
 And let me just say, I have never seen Dr.Who... I'm more into Harry Potter... So I had to google  it, I mean, everything, what the Tardis looks like, the sign on the box, I made one myself with  a (googled) qoute fra Clara Oswald..
I have used a nice blue colored bazill to make the outside of the Tardis. Exept for the windows, where I used  grey bazill
I used gelatos to make the distressed look on all the edges,
 The top on the Tardis is made with bazill and some yellow vellum.

  When the Tardis explodes, its layers and layers with pictures of Silje. From newborn til' today...
I made some galaxy-backgrounds using Glimmermist to use on the in-side walls of the tardis, the next layers is blue and black bazill, with gold-paint and a star-stencil.

In the last layer I made this, (also from Google) Fez are red, the Tardis is blue, Doctors are cool, and so are you. And then a goldheart I made with foil-glue and Minc-foil.

In the center I made "pop-up" with a die-cut: Kjære Konfirmant. (Dear confirmant) (Im not sure its the right translation, or you even have confirmations where you live. Its a big tradition in Norway)
The date for here confirmation, and on the other side I had the money she got from me and my family..

Easy decor inside, I wanted that the pictures was the mail focus.

                                                                Du er super= You're great

Gratulerer med dagen = congratulation

                                                            Hipp hurra = Hipp horray

You want to see how I made it?

Now, lets talk centimeters:
I used heavy cardboard as a base... 
The walls is 12x18 cm. I cut the cardboard so two and two walls was connected. and then folded it, so the connected bit, become a base  (you can see what I mean in the video)

Bazil, or other cardstock:
4 blue  12x18 cm. (outside the tardis)
4blue 10x 15 cm (inner layer)
4 Black 8 x 12 cm (inner layer)
4 blue 6x 9 cm (inner layer)

Panels outside the Tardis:
32 blue 3x3 cm.
12 blue 1.5 x 18 cm
8 grey  2.7 x2.7 cm. (I cut each in 0.9x1.35, these will be glued on a blue 3x3 cm for windows)
1 blue 17x17. (Score at 2 cm in on all sides. This will be the top.
1 blue 16x16, score at 2 cm in on all sides. This one I glues on top of the one in 17x17. 
1 blue 3x3 cm, Score 0.5 cm in on all sides, this is the light top)

Hope you liked it.

Do you like/love Pirates of the Caribbean?
I love Jack Sparrow and cant wait til next week to go see the new movie...

I am a part of a youtube-collab with Pirates of the Caribbean as a theme, and I was looking trough my pictures, and found the pictures of my sons busy finding shells...

And with the quote:
"Not all treasure is silver and gold mate"
It all came together really easy...

The paper, both the blue and white stripes, and the compas one is fra Canvas Corp Brands, so is the little canvas...
Glimmermist is a Canvas Corp-product  as well.

The shell is from the beach, and the texture paste black sand is a Finnabair product.

My video, hope you like it:

Dont forget to look at the other Pirates of the Caribbean-videos:
Shady Character Art
Crafting with moose

Have a nice weekend

cool kid, case 228 CSI

Case 228 at CSI
My evidence: chevrons, frames and puffy stickers.
My testimony: write on a artisan-shaped label...

The story is: This cool kid was going to a birthday-party to his friends, and hi told me that we needed to fix his hair... Hi wanted the hair to stand up, and color it with  red and green chalk.
So thats what we did.. He was so cool, and had to check the mirror all the time to see that his hair was in the right place...
I stamped my background with a stamp fram carabelle using hero art ombre stamp-pad, the stars and cool kid is thickers, I glued some wiggely eyes on the two O.
The chevrons is from a dies and the paper used is from Papirdesign.
The rest of the frames are diecuts made with paper from Fabscraps.
I used a app to get the bookeh-effect on the picture...
Have a great day.
