Beautiful Blogger Award

Sweetest Annette over at Bakom kulisserna hos Magdas has given me an award! :D

Thank you so much! I'll do my best to follow the instructions that come this award:

* Copy the award picture to your blog to show that you have recieved it.
* Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to him/her.
* Pass the award on to 7 bloggers and link to them.
* Reveal 7 interesting facts about yourself.

7 facts about me:

1. I drive a bright yellow New Beetle - part of the license plate says: RAW
2. I can sound like a cackling hen and a great tit (a small bird for those of you who don't know) ;) - according to a colleague who is a bird-watcher
3. I often have to show my ID when buying alcoholic beverages - apparently I don't look a DAY over 20. ;D
4. When I studied in Nottingham (UK) some people thought that my native tongue was English.
5. I love playing computer games and sometimes discuss different games with my students
6. I teach Swedish and English to 16-19 year-olds.
7. I love to sleep - I could sleep until noon if I didn't have to get up with my little daughter in the morning. ;)

More or less interesting facts about me - but hey! Maybe there was something you didn't know about me?

I've decided to pass this award along to only THREE bloggers - just because I want to be a bit of a rebel... ;) Here goes:

DrAnnika - A true friend who has become a frequent blogger lately. She lives in the UK and I miss her so much!

Lillpiga - A woman with THE iron will - she's cool, she's rockin', and she's a DAMN fine friend.

Kajsan - A beautiful and supportive friend who inspires me in more ways than one.

Thank you girls for being in my life!

Candy Shoppe Designs

Remember some while ago I was happy about something - well, now is the time to tell you what that was all about...

I've been chosen to be a Lollipop girl for Candy Shoppe Designs!!!


This is my first layout for this fantastic inspirational and challenge blog:
(though I misunderstood what kind of layout I should do... Instead of a layout to present ME, I made a layout that presents what I do, what my style is. *hehe* Sorry about that!)

Now head on over to Candy Shoppe Designs to check out the new girls and their work! I'm so excited to be designing together with this talented lot!

Take care!

Scrapfever at Magdas

I have made two layouts so far:

I will update with new creations as soon as I have them ready and photographed! :)

Take care!

Scrap Evening

I had a wonderful time last night over at Magdas - a scrap evening was arranged and Annette invited us into her home for an evening of scrap and fun!

Kajsan showed us how to make a treat bag and I tried some embossing powders from Ranger Ink - I ended up with one finished Christmas card, and then I started making one more that was not finished. I hope to get some time this weekend to finish it and scrap some more, because I always get so inspired when I meet other people with the same interest!! I just want to go home and scrap NOW!!! :D

Well now, I'll hold my horses a bit - still have some work to do today. ;)

My brother, part II

And once again - some more FANTASTIC pictures of my brother when he was just a little toddler:

Patterned papers from Maja design, flowers from Prima and Kort og Godt, Prima bling swirls, lace, Thickers and alphabet stickers, a stamped chandelier, and a ticket from Tim Holtz.

No need for words - these pictures speak for themselves...

I love my brother, he's as nutty now as he looked on these pictures, about 33 years ago... ;)

Take care!

Just little me...

...I might have been 1 or 2 years old in these pictures. I loved to scrap these, because I saw how much Kajsa reminds me of me when I was a child. I can see that we are somehow related. ;) Also, I mostly scrap pictures of Kajsa, so it's fun with a little change every now and then. ;)

I made this layout for Cards of Maria using patterned paper from Maja design, metal decorations and gorgeous flowers from the webshop.

Take care and have a good week!

Creative for Magdas

The material used on this LO is from Magdas - don't you just LOVE these wonderful papers from BoBunny's Cambridge line. The background for this particular layout is called "Crown Die Cut" and I love it because you don't have to decorate so much - it's so decorative in itself.

I've used some corrugated cardboard, Prima flowers and swirl, Tiny Type stickers from Cosmo Cricket, Thickers from American Crafts, and some kraft cardstock. Behind the photo I've used a piece of patterned paper from the same line - the back side of the paper "Chess".

Stay tuned for more creations using these GORGEOUS papers! :)

Take care,

Favourite Cake

Our favourite cake - these two I made for my husband's big birthday party this summer when he turned 40. They were very popular and I'm glad my friend Mia snapped some pictures of them, because I forgot about it! ;)

This layout was made during one of the great crops in Ärla - the challenge was to make something VERY pink. I think I succeeded very well, don't you think? I don't usually scrap with that much pink so it was fun to try it out! :D

Take care!

Baking with Kajsa

The first time I baked with Kajsa we made cinnamon rolls - she tasted everything and was very happy to eat the rolls when they were done. She loves sweets!!

The material is from Brunkullan and I just LOVE those big alpha chipboards from Pink Paislee!! Aren't they almost as yummy as cinnamon rolls? ;)

Take care!

Christmas Card Week, Day 6


A card with flowers, swirls, lace and gorgeous stamps from Inkido. I also used some distress stickles on the swirl, and some branches that I punched out with the very first (but definitely not the last) punch from Martha Stewart. Tadaaa! :)

Tomorrow I'll show you the last Christmas card for this week - but I'm pretty sure there will be more to come later on. ;)

Take care!

Christmas Card Week, Day 5


For this card I played around with distress inks on the background, a stamp from Tim Holtz, white emboss powder, and lots of flowers, bling and Pearl Maker. I love making Christmas cards without the usual reds and greens - it's a bit refreshing to use other colours sometimes.

Take care!

Christmas Card Week, Day 4


Today there are two mini cards on display here - both using patterned paper from Maja Design. One has a stamp from Inkido on it, along with flowers and lace. The other one has lots of Prima flowers, bling and a rubon.

I just love making mini cards, so why not make a few of the Christmas cards small? :)

Take care and see you tomorrow for more Christmas inspiration Tim Holtz style!

A Birthday Card

One of my colleagues asked me if I could make her a card for her son - of course, said I!

I used a digi stamp of Greeting Farm's Ian with a football since my colleague's son likes football.

Edit: The pic was not the best - but I had to use my iPhone and the light was not good at all... ;) Fixed the size as well now.

Take care and have a lovely weekend!

A Window Card

There was recently a crop over at pyssel.net and I only had time to do one card for a challenge. But, what do you know - I won!! :D

It's a window recess card - and the tutorial can be found on Splitcoast stampers. Try it - it was easy and fun to make!

Take care!
