CCG 181 Sis and I - February 2011 - FEATURED AS TODAY'S GALLERY FAVE
We have come to the end of our month long fascination with the sweets. Shame, they were fun and delicious, weren’t they? To finish our month, we definitely saved the best for last. Our Designer’s Challenge is Focus on Product - use your products to recreate a filigree design…..
What a beautiful and mild palette! Immediately came to think of this photo of my FIL and his sister taken sometime back in the early 1930's. Just look at her cloche hat and his stockings! At the moment I am happily stitching away with my MIL's iron sewing machine from 1956, glorious craftmanship in those days.
Cut out frame from Prima Botanical, green dotted pp Graphic45 and centre circle also Prima Botanical. Lace from my stash, yello pearl/ribbon Prima, new Prima yellow silk bloom and jewel/pearl swirl. Old BG Porcelain thickers that I have coated with liquid pearl. Feathers, white/yellow flower and felt fern are from my stash. Clock face brad is new MME Stella & Rose. Cutout teal/craft swirly flowers are DCWV Linen Closet and matting pps are BG Curio, Fancy Pants So Happy, MME Stella & Rose and a Prima packaging. The dainty filigree of the pretty cupcake holders inspired me to the whole page.
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My family is a small one; it's me and my very supportive and patient husband and our 3 cats - Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter. My friends kindly let me scrap their children if I need willing guinea pigs for a layout. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful, London is my favourite city in the whole world. I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life, I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments make me very happy!
