The Joy of Spring

Don't you just loooong for spring? I do. A lot.

This photo is taken in April this year, and I just love the pictures. Kajsa is having such a good time out in the garden with us. :)

The layout is made for the Scrapfever over at Magdas message board, and we're having loads of fun with all the challenges, I tell you!! :D

Take care!

One of the challenges over at Magdas is to create something that has the word "Grateful" on it. I've made a layout with my wonderful family:

The strip of photos is made with a gadget found on BigHugeLabs - well worth trying; I love it!!

A Set of Three

Made for Magdas Scrapfever - a set of three with the same patterned papers and similar decorations:

An altered notebook, a card, and a gift box. I haven't written anything on them, because I haven't yet decided who I'm going to give them to. ;)

Take care!

Magdas Scrapfever

I have created a few layouts and other things for Magdas Scrapfever - this layout is one of them:

The challenge for this was to get inspired by a photograph of a beautiful bouquet of flowers in white and orange, placed in a big watering can. I chose to be inspired by the colours, so I made this layout in white, orange, and green.

The skies are grey today, and a little bit of snow is falling from the sky. It has been very windy, so I don't want to go out if I don't have to. And I don't, because I'm at home with Kajsa who's still not entirely well after having a high temperature this weekend. We're just taking it easy, watching cartoons/films and having homemade cinnamon rolls. ;)

Take care!

Teal and Red

This simple Christmas card is made with lots of distress inks, my sewing machine, some bling, a gorgeous stamp from Inkido, and a couple of flowers. Easy peasy - but oh so fun to make! :)

How many Christmas cards have you made? I think I have this years cards ready soon - it's sooo much fun to make them!!!

Take care!

Damn You're Good, Girl!

I'm not going to tell you who'll get this card - that would spoil the surprise, right...? ;)

Tim Holtz masks, tissue tape, flowers from Prima, glimmer mist and some lace. Kraft cardstock - don't forget kraft cardstock. I swear by it.

Take care!

Halloween Cards

Before Halloween - I know I'm a bit late showing you this - I made two mini cards:

I made them small and simple - just coloured the stamps with Copics and used mini alpha stickers for the sentiments. These cards were made using stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie - you can find them in Brunkullan Scrap & Cards web shop!

Take care!

Blue and Brown

Blue and brown Christmas cards - I think I'm stuck!! :D I just love the clean feeling, even though I like the traditional colours as well.

This one is made using the gorgeous embossing powder "Frost" from Inkido, and distress ink Tumbled Glass. I've also used my new border die from Magnolia called "Old Swedish Lace". Very appropriate. :) I don't know the maker of the bling swirl, but the sweet blue gardenia flower I've bought from Cards of Maria. I LOVE these flowers - have to buy more, I think... ;)

Take care!

Halloween Treats

This weekend I went and bought absurd amounts of sweets for my sweet family. I decorated a box for my hubby David:

...and another box for his daugther Malinda:

I can't show you Kajsa's little treat bag, because that one is in a challenge. I'll show it to you later!

Take care!

Hear Me Roar

There is a new challenge over at CSD - Candy Shoppe Designs - and you don't want to miss it!!! Hop on over there to check the instructions on how to enter!

This is of course my take on the challenge - and those of you who know me well know that this belongs to my pre-maternity period, before Kajsa was born - now I'm not as big of a party animal as I used to be.

The picture is taken in Nottingham in 1998 - if I remember correctly it was during the Easter party, and I'm singing Y.M.C.A. - can you tell? Also, check out how my cuffs and my collar matches the animal print on the patterned paper. Isn't that clever...? ;)

The sponsor for this challenge is:

So, what are you waiting for?! Get going!! :D

The Evening Sun

In the face of my brother. This is how he looks today - to those of you who have seen the layouts with him at an early age... ;)

Layout is made for Brunkullan Scrap & Card and can be seen in their blog, together with an account of materials used.

Take care, y'all!
