Camilla's top 10 2010

It is not easy to make a Top ten list of my own cards!! I did this challenge last year aswell, and it is not any easier this year.
This year I got an invite on Facebook to do it. It is a kind of blog hop, where we all link back to this post by Suzi. Anyone is welcome to join!
I have twisted it a bit, because so many extraordinary things with crafting and cardmaking have happend to me this year, so I will also sum that up.
All together I had about 25 favourits this year, but I narrowed it down to 10 projects as I should do. I am still not sure if I have picked the ten "best"...
***
~1~
First up is a card I made for the Norwegian magazine "Ett Trykk". I was asked to be their Guest Artist for April this year. To be a guest artist in this magazine was something I thought only "Superstars" in cardmaking/scrapping could be, and you can guess I felt shocked and completely lost my breath for a moment when I got THAT e-mail. I felt so honoured!
This easel card got the cover as you can see further down:) (Where I have borrowed some photos from Ett Trykk)
I have masked together three images from Whiff of Joy.

~2~
I have also choosed two more projects that I made for the magazine in my "Top 10"-list. I still have them all at home. I can't see myself to give them away just yet:)
This card under is with Tilda from Magnolia on the front.
Here is the inside of the card. The papers are from Maja Design. I have made a criss cross envelope, and used some of Magnolia's minis.

~3~
Here is a candy/chocolate-box that I made for the Magazine Ett Trykk.
It is also with stamps from Magnolia. And I have put a card on the box as you can see breefly on the photos.


~4~
Here is the Easter-card that I choosed to be my favourite card for 2010. I really love the pop-up effect, and the colours. This Tilda is also one of my most used images this year.
***
Now to another happening:)
This summer I got one of my cards on the cover of Magnolia Ink. This magazine is made by Magnolia, and as a DT member most of my DT-work is to make cards and other projects for the magazine. In the beginning we were allowed to show the cards we made for the magazine in our blogs. But for the magazine to be more exciteing, our cards for Magnolia Ink is now only in the magazine. 
But since you all have seen this card on the cover I will show you some of my photos of it under the magazine here:)



~5~
Mermaid Tilda is also from Magnolia, and she is just fantastic! I made this card for a friend of mine.
~6~
This baby-card got really popular, I had to make some more of them (with other names ofcourse:)) It fits so nicely babtism cards, or cards for newborns. The image from Magnolia is actually a girl, but is nice for boys aswell. I made this card also to a friend of mine. She gave birth to Albert this summer. And she actually framed this card and hanged it in his room:) What an honour! She sent me a photo of it, and you can see it under the card:)

***
This summer I got some emails from BA-Timbroscrapmania. She invited me to have a workshop in Rome! This was both exciting but challenging. But what an adventure!!:) I travelled together with my mother. And BA was the most heartwarming and beautiful person, so this could not have been any better:) And not forget all the amazing ladies I met in the workshops!!
Before the trip I also had a day in Bergen, Hobbykroken, where I teached colouring with Distress Ink. This was the first time I held a "real" course.
Here are me and the lovely ladies from Sardinia!
And here are the DT Timbroscrapmania: Barbara, Gio and Lina.
~7~
Here is a card I made for Stempelglede, using the new Vintage Garden stamps. I made this card for my mother's birthday.
~8~
Here is the set I made for the Magnolia Advent Blog Hop. And it is still going on:) I had choosed the Santa Lucia Day, Dec 13th. And made a card with a matching book-box. It was the first time I made this box, but I will certanly make some more. I think they will be great for Confirmand cards/boxes.
~9~
My next card is a Sarah Kay card. I really like this image, and felt that it harmonized well together with the flowers made with Stempelglede stamps and Retro Flower punches. The lovely papers are from Maja Design.
~10~
My last project is this wedding cake I made for Magnolia Ink. I can see from photos from the Magnolia shop that it still stands in the shop:)
I made two round boxes, which you can open and put a wedding gift inside.

***
Another big happening was when I was asked to be in the DT for the paper company Maja Design this fall. Because of many reasons I had to held this as a secret for a long time, and that was not easy!!:) I am so proud to be able to represent Maja Design together with four talented ladies. And I think Marie is looking for some more DT-members also;))
***
Another news that I can share with you is that I will be making cards for the wonderful challenge blog Magnolia Down Under Challenges in 2011.
I was their guest DT from October-December 2010, but will continue in 2011 aswell! I am so greateful for this!
***
As you might know my husband has opened up a web shop called Hjerteboden. This is so much fun, and really exciting. It is still a small shop, but when time goes, he hope to get more costomers and more goods. In January he is expecting many new goods. One of them is a Stamp-collection that is new in Norway, and which I think is just gorgeous. So please follow him on his blog, and see what happens:)
***
As you can see this has been an exciting year for me!
I am really grateful for everything that has happened. And I also have to thank all my followers, I can see that you are soon 1000!! It is amazing! Thank you so much! And thank you to all who leaves me such lovely and supporting comments. It makes my day! And also thank you for visiting my blog.
I am also so thankful to Magnolia-Barbro, Carl, Pauline, Åsa and the others, Stempelglede-Gunhild, Maja Design-Marie and MDUC for having me in their teams. I really love you all, and am so happy to be able to represent such an amazing set of crafting products which are also my favourites!:))
I wish you all a Fantastic New Year!!

Camilla sa...

Kära Camilla!
Grattis till ett fantastiskt år som du har varit med om. Jag tror inte att du kunde drömma om allt detta:)
Men efter att ha följt dig från den där speciella dagen, och har fått ta del av dina vackra kort som bla: finns hos Magnolia så är det helt klart du är en STJÄRNA.
Ditt sätt att måla och dekorera och få dina kort att bli magiska, blir så glad och varm av att se på dom.
Förstår att det inte är lätt att bara välja ut 10 st kort.
Men du har gjort ett bra val.
Tack för all inspiration som vi får ta del av.
Många kramar Camilla

Ditt 9. kort her er bare så utrolig lekkert! Og jeg lurer på om det er greit for deg om jeg bruker det i et inspirasjonshefte til treffet jeg arrangerer i april, SteinkjerScrepp{a}?
Tenkte jeg skulle spørre;0)

De andre kortene er selvfølgelig utrolig lekre også altså;0) hi hi!
