A thousand thank you

A thousand thank you - card I made for a challenge on pyssel.net some time ago - I just love the resin decorations from Prima! White and light blue or turquoise has always been a very nice combination and I go back to it ever so often!



Take care!

Yummy!

My daughter Kajsa munching on a piece of spongecake I love to bake (and eat!) - chocolate with chocolate frosting and shredded coconut on top. It has a lot of names in Sweden, and I usually call it Coconut squares or Love yummies (difficult to translate, as you might understand - all you Swedes know what I'm talking about!). ;)


Lots of flowers and bling, as well as gesso and washi tape - some of my favourites at the moment!

Take care!

Fixing at home...

...just gives me more and more ideas! Things to improve, things to paint, colours I like... The new IKEA catalogue arrived yesterday and I used my lunch hour today to browse through it. Oh the ideas!!

Some of my favourites at the moment:




These would go nicely in my home - I fell in love with the painting last time I visited IKEA and I really want it on my bedroom wall, since I have nothing there at the moment. I need the cupboard for all of my nice wine glasses and cocktail glasses - right now I have them stowed away since I don't h ave anywhere to put them. The cupboard is the same style as my TV bench and coffee table, so it would fit in very well!

My crafty corner in my bedroom is getting a make over as well - so far I've painted two tables and bought a new corner table for my computer, so I'm getting there... One piece at the time!

With this I might need to get some colourful chairs - there's a lot of white, but I really like it! That way the only clutter of colours will be my creative mess! ;-)

Take care!



All pictures from IKEA's homepage. I IKEA! :-D

Clean & Simple

If you know the crafty me, you probably know that I love clean & simple layouts as well as shabby/vintage. These two layouts are VERY c&s...



Take care!

Favourites

Found some more old creations... I really need to get my files and folders sorted, don't I?!!! ;D

These two layouts show you a couple of my favourites - Chai latte (not necessarily Starbucks - Espresso House is fine, too!) and Criminal Minds (or crime-TV in general - love Numbers and CSI, too).



So, what are your faves?

Take care!

Back to school

Back to school, back to work - I LOVE it! :-D I always alter my teacher calendar, and this year I opted for YELLOW, since it's my favourite colour.



I also altered a couple of notebooks - one for meetings and one for planning:



If you want to know what materials I have used, I will point you in the direction of Pyssloteket's blog, where I have posted these creations today! :-)

I'm ready to go back to work now - how about you? Back to work already or still have a couple of weeks off?

Take care!

Old creations

When I was browsing through my computer in a vain attempt to sort out my files and folders, I stumbled across a few unpublished creations, and I thought I'd show them to you:


This is Kajsa having fun baking - I must admit that I put flour in her face just because I wanted to take good pictures... ;-D She didn't mind, though...


As a teacher in our school you get your picture taken - it's not just the pupils that are photographed... Thought I'd scrap myself - Miss Jeanette - the teacher-me. ;-)

The rain is pouring down today, so this is a prefect day to update my blog and schedule a few posts. Hope to update the blog a bit more frequent now when autumn is here.

Take care!

Strawberry cake

For Midsummer this year I made this strawberry cake - yum! I have made it a couple of times before, and this year my brother and his wife asked me if I could make it again. Doh! OF COURSE! I love the heap of strawberries covering the strawberry mousse and the sticky chocolate with Daim crunch underneath...


This layout is the last one I show you from Scrap-Perra's Summer Crop - I just love crops with loads of challenges and a kit to create from! This crop had fun and inspiring challenges and I'm really glad I had time to participate during the summer! :-D

Take care!

My Princess

This is my little princess - simple as that:


The challenge at Scrap-Perra's was "Princes and Princesses", and that was EASY! ;-) I have TONS of photos of Kajsa to create something with... This layout turned out to be very pink and girly - but I like that! It gives me a chance to use flowers (and other girly decos) in excess, though I don't think this is exaggerated in that sense.

Take care!

Happy girl

Veckans skiss is hosting a summer challenge, and I've created a layout after a FUN sketch! 


You had some things you had to include in your creation, such as colour (I've used distress stains), at least two different fonts, at least five different colours, something that has been cur out (the cloud), and something that you would usually not have on a layout (I added a pencil).

Love this challenge!!

Take care!




Dora's face

This is aDORAble Dora:


She was just a little puppy when the pic was taken - now she's a big girl - still as mischievous... The layout was one of the creations I made for the Summer Crop at Scrap-Perra's message board - the challenge was FACE. ;-) What better than that cute little face?

Take care!

There's a Doctor in the House

Not so long ago my DEAREST friend, Annika, graduated from medical school. She is now a REAL doctor!!


I'm so proud of her - and the graduation ceremony was FAB! I'm really glad I had the opportunity to be there and see it!

The layout was made for one of the challenges in Scrap-Perra's Summer Crop.

Take care!

Butterflies

A card with butterflies -  stamped with Distress Markers:


I just love how you can colour directly onto your stamp and make it so much more alive!! Now I have to learn how to colour stamped motifs as well - with a water brush and all that jazz... Not my strongest side of crafting, I can tell you that much!!

There are loads of girls out there who are AMAZINGLY talented - just take a look at the tutorial in Asamias blog - it makes me think I can actually LEARN how to... ;-) Thank you, Åsa, for that tutorial!!


Take care!

A Gift Box

A little gift box to give away to someone who deserves something extra:


I didn't put any text on the box, just because I wanted to be able to add that when I know who's going to have it. ;-) Sometimes you need to have a few cards and gift boxes ready for those moments when you realise that you don't have the time to do it.

Go and check out Pyssloteket's blog if you want to know the details and materials used for this box!

Take care!

Grandfather

This summer my grandfather passed away and I created this layout about him:


Thinking about you, grandpa - I hope you are well, wherever you are...

Chilling on the Balcony

Hello there!

I've been pretty occupied this summer - toilet training with Kajsa, a 10-day-trip to England, friends & family - but now I'm at home again, and life is almost back to normal. The only thing that's not normal is that I'm still on summer holidays!! :-)

This layout describes parts of my summer - chilling on my balcony:


I've made this layout for the Summer Crop at Scrap-Perra's and I still have several more things to show you from that crop! :-)

Take care!
