Grunge Collection

This is a notebook I've created for Brunkullan - Grunge Collection stamps (Stempelglede), Graphic 45 papers, Prima...


I've been doing a few notebooks lately - I don't know why, but I've felt like my Bind-It-All has needed some of my lovin'. ;) I'll show you another book soon.

Take care!

Shopping and a Surprise!

Me and Stina took the yellow bug to Uppsala today for a scrap meet/fair. I had two demonstrations for Cards of Maria, who also hosted the fair, and then we indulged in some shopping. This is what I came home with:


Cardstock, alpha stickers, bling awirls, clearstamps, dimensionals, two Martha Stewart punches and a new Copic blender pen.

I ALSO brought this:


The whole Cappella collection from Basic Grey!! Stina Sweetheart bought them for me as a gift instead of giving me money for the petrol! Isn't she the absolute sweetest?!?! I LOVE these papers and I was looking at them at the fair but decided not to buy them because I need to cut down on expenses a little bit. And she noticed that and sprang into action!! *teehee*

THANK you, hun!!!

We'll see what tomorrow brings - I have some cards and layout in my "to blog" folder on my computer, but it's mostly DT work and some challenge creations that can't be shown yet, so we'll see... ;-)

Have a great Saturday evening!

Mother's Day Card

Mother's day is celebrated the last Sunday in May in Sweden (please correct me if I'm wrong!), and of course I've made cards for my mother and my mother-in-law. This is one of the cards - one that I made at the crop in Ärla last weekend:


Have a really good day!

YES!!!


I'll go visit the car salesman on Saturday, and if nothing is terribly wrong with this gorgeous yellow little car, I will drive it AAAAALL the way home!!!

Yep. I'm soo happy right now. Like a child on Christmas. :D

Focus on You

This layout was a double challenge - it's made after a sketch and it's made in under 30 minutes! I think I had 50 seconds left when I was done with it...


This is one of my favourite photos of Kajsa, and it was so much fun to scrap!

The weather here is gorgeous, and I really hope it will continue like this now - sunshine, blue skies and warm winds. Lovely!

Take care!

My 10th picture

Malin has challenged me to post my 10th picture posted in this blog - of course I'm in!!

This picture was taken in 2007 when I moved into my present craft room - it shows how it looked like then.


Maybe I should take some pictures of what it looks like now? Well, it's not that different, just one more scrap table crammed in there, and some new supplies... Some. ;)

Now, I challenge these girls:
Annika
ANNAANNA
Babsan
Kajsan

Let's see if they're up for it?

Take care!

Challenge #9 at XOXO

You haven't forgotten about the scraplift challenge over at XOXO, have you? I'm one of the proud Lipstick Chicks, and I'm amazed to see all that inspiration crammed into one blog post. If you haven't checked it out, I strongly suggest you do!

The brilliant thing with this challenge blog is that instead of just one or two alternatives to scraplift, you have 24 (!!!) to choose from. If Mr. Mojo is kind to you, you can scraplift more than one layout and increase your chances to win this gorgeous May kit from Color Me Miki:


Now, get scrappin' - I'd love to see all your scraplifts!!

Take care!

Mum's chai latte

Kajsa loves to stir and play with liquids - on this picture she found my glass of chai latte and sat with it for ages. I had to make myself a new glass of chai, because when she was done with the first, it was ice cold. ;)


Hope the sun is shining where you are and that spring brings lots of beautiful flowers - our flower beds are full of tulips now, and I LOVE it!! :D

Spring greetings!

"En - too - teee"

Lovin' you is easy...


Yep, it is. She is the love of my life - apart from my husband, but that's a completely different story! This layout was made for one of the challenges over at Magdas - now we're all eagerly waiting for the results from the jury... ;-) 1 month of scrap challenges and 12+ challenges - let me just say that I've had a BLAST doing all these challenges!! :D

Take care!

A small birthday card

I've created a small birthday card for Brunkullan with some more of those gorgeous Scribble Scrabble papers:


I just love the flowers, they are sooo lovely - and I'm not even a fan of purple!! ;)

Just a short one today - time is sparse!
Take care!

Scrabbles, anyone?

This is one of the layouts for the Scrapfever at Magdas - for this challenge you had to mess about with colours!!


I chose to use lots of glimmer mist on the background and then stamp some letters and decorate. The big black alphas are Pink Paislee and the tag underneath the photo is from Webster's Pages.

Have a really good day!

New for Brunkullan

My sketchbook is soon full, so I had to make a new one - and I did so with some of the lovely papers from Scribble Scrabble Brunkullan sent me:


I made it very simple because I often want to bring my sketchbooks to crops, and then I shove them down into my tool tote... You could easily imagine what would happen to it if it had lots of flowers and other embellishments on it! ;)

Now my break is over - I need to keep on working!
Tadaaa!

Pink elephants?!!

This card was made for a challenge over at Magdas Scrapfeber - a piece of fabric with animals in bright colours on it was the inspiration. You could do pretty much whatever you wanted as long as this fabric was your source of inspiration, and I picked up the elephants and the colours green, pink, and black, and went for a very simple card:


It feels like I'm trying a lot of different styles right now - is that good or is it a sign of general confusion? I don't know, but it doesn't matter - I scrap because I think it's fun!!!

Now, let the weekend be merry and let the scrap confetti soar around you!

I'll be back!

Have a good one!

Ok...

...secrets, secrets...

See anyone you know here?

Spring layout

This is one of my favourite layouts at the moments - I love the yellow and green against the kraft cardstock... *yum*


This was made for the Easter crop at pyssel.net and I actually came second with this layout!!! Yeey!! :D

Spring feelings, anyone?!

Easel card

Yet another creation for the crop at pyssel.net - this one is an easel card with one of the gorgeous stamps from The Greeting Farm. I just LOVE their stamps...


Easel cards are really easy to make - and FUN - over at Splitcoast stampers you can find tutorials of easel cards and many other things! Check it out!

Tadaaaa!

My Grandpa

This is a layout, also made for the Easter crop at pyssel.net, about Agard - my extra grandpa. He lives about 450 kilometres from where we live, so we don't see him so often. I really hope we can go and see him this summer, though.


Take care!!
/ Jeanette

måndagen den 3:e maj 2010

YELLOW!!!

One of the challenges for the Easter crop on pyssel.net was to make something entirely yellow. You could use an itsy-bitsy-tiny amount of one other colour, but other than that - YELLOW. Guess if I was a happy bunny?


My yellow card with just a little bit black (the alpha stickers) - oh how fun to work monochromatically!!

Have a good one!

Candy Shoppe Challenge

Ok, I hope you know about Candy Shoppe Designs - if not - you have to go check out their current challenge AND yummy blog candy!!!

This months challenge is "21". Yep, the number 21. You can interpret it however you'd like, and my idea came quicker than I could say ... 21!!


This is my new little nephew - Julius - born on April 15 this year. He was so small he had to stay at the ward for early-born babies for a couple of weeks. That ward was ward - 21 - yep, that's it. Easy choice, right?

So, now - get hoppin' over to Candy Shoppe and join in with the fun!! This month's sponsor is:

Have a great Sunday!!
/ Jeanette

Quote

One of the challenges on pyssel.net was to scrap a favourite quote. I picked this one because it was perfect for the photo AND because it fits me and my husband so well. We're kinda' childish... ;)

To always be a little bit childish is to be truly grown up

I did well with this layout - I got a second place!!! Yeeeey!!! :D

Have a great Sunday, y'all!

Colourful girl


This is one of the layouts I've made for Magdas Scrapfeber (Scrap fever) - one of the challenges I thought would be really difficult. It wasn't. The layout practically made itself - I just added the required elements: dark pink, light pink, blue, green, yellow; at least 5 flowers, at least 4 brads, something stamped OR something die cut, and bling. On top of that you had to include the two words "happy" and "colourful" somewhere on the layout, and those words are incorporated in my journaling.

I hope to do some more scrapping this evening - I have lots of new goodies from Magdas that I want to try out!

Smiley from millan.net

Have a great weekend!
