Swedish scrapbooking - Allt om Scrap - my canvas "Happiness"

Hello again!

I have been approached several times by the Swedish online authority on Scrapbooking - "Allt om Scrap" - regarding a GDT spot with them. The editor Marie, is DT member over at Heart & Soul, also known as The Color Rooms. Unfortunately other commitments came in between, but now everything fitted beautifully!

Allt of Scrap have a challenge in monochromatic yellow on their blog HERE that I was asked to create something for. I went for a 20 x 20 canvas mounted in a deep shadow box.

Here's the canvas with misted yellow tones 
and a bit of white.


I also added some stamping in really dark yellow that 
looks like brown, around the border.








 
 All the mulberry flowers were originally white.





And this is the finished result in its shadow box 
ready to go up on the wall or on a shelf.

Prima April PPP - "Sweets for my sweet"

Hello Saturday!

Woke up to birdsong and a sky that hasn't been this blue in a long time. It's a truly BEAUTIFUL day out there!

Have been 3 days on my new job now and they sure went by at super sonic speed. My boss sent me a text yesterday evening telling me how happy he is to have me onboard. Bless him the sweet man!

Aaanyhow, thought I'd share my take on the Prima April PPP today. At the end of this post I will reveal the name of the winner of the extra free registration for a My Details eCourse.

First the moodboard with its gorgeous soft pastel colours.

April 2014 ppp 

and then my take on it. 
Had to tweak the photos a bit more than I would have liked to, 
otherwise the soft colours wouldn't have photographed at all.

 


 Punchwork and stamping to mimic old fashioned
doily lace.

 Have stocked up a drawer full of the SIIC jewels, 
they come in the most beautiful colours - 
who could choose just a few!

Adore the fireplace resins, nah! I actually adore all of the resins!
Couldn't live without them!

 Love, love the Crochet Icons too!
Guilty as charged - I love ANYTHING Prima!



How could I resist this photo by the Finnish photographer
whose photos I am allowed to use?! CUTE!

In style with Maggie - Crate product review for Scrap365 + an extra free registration for a My Details eCourse

As most of you know, I have a life-long crush on beautiful papers and cannot imagine scrapping without my beloved flowers. Come to think of it, I have never made a layout without flowers. However, when I set my eyes on Crate/Maggie Holmes latest collection called Styleboard I sent my flowers back into their box. Now that's a first!
 

HERE  is the link to the full blogpost with photos of products used. 

In addition to the mini album, I also made 4 other projects with the Styleboard Collection, all of them can be seen over at Scrap365's blog.
Check out the papers, oh là là! I'm in love! how pretty can it get! Wonderful quality as I like and they come in the cutest mix of sweet patterns and colours. My Mojo started stirring immediately and I set out to create my first project, a mini album.













It’s all in the details--so document yours! 
My teamie from Scrap365 Magazine Kristin Tweedale from rukristin 
and Megan from the Nerd Nest have teamed up to 
help you document yourself. 

With amazing pre-classroom materials and 10 detailed prompts 
to help you record the important areas of your life, 
you’ll be inspired to document yourself in a meaningful way.

I am giving away an extra free registration

drawn winner pulled from anyone

I started my new job today. New boss. New desk. New office. 
Practically new everything except me :)

Having a couple of days off work in connection with Easter

More birthdays - a card and a gift box for a pretty girl

Hello!

Hope you're weekend has started off nicely and you are enjoying spring/autumn. Stockholm is boasting wonderful sunshine. Yay!

Today I though't I'd share another birthday card and giftbox that I made a couple of weeks ago. We have many birthdays to celebrate in the spring.

Here's first the card;

 

All papers are from Norwegian Tilda's collection "All About Spring". 

The colours are really quite tricky to photograph.
The photo still doesn't give justice to the beautiful, soft hues.

 

The little resin cherubs are from Prima, 
as is the white lace bloom
on top of the banner.
 
 

 And then the gift box that held a necklace and a bracelet for the youngish lady;

 

 Here the colours of the Tilda papers have photographed so much better.

A Prima metal plaque and lots of cream pearls scattered all over.



A gift box wouldn't be complete without Prima goodies on the lid.
White, cream and gray mulberry roses.
White lace blooms.
One of Finnabair's metal flowers and a resin cherub to finish it off. 

***

 That's all for today. Thank you so much for coming by!!

I'll be back on Monday, 7 April
when I'm up with a post on the Scrap 365Magazine blog again.
