Stratford and Oxford

I love to travel, and I have been to one country many times - England. First of all because I love the country and have studied there in my past, and second of all because two VERY good friends live there. This summer I also had the opportunity to go to several places I haven't been to before - for example Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, two historical places I've wanted to visit for a long time. Of course I have a BUNCH of photos to scrap from my trip - here are two of them:



Right now I savour the memory of this summer's trip as the weather here in Sweden grows colder and the days get shorter and shorter... This is not my favourite time of year, but I'll survive with many cups of tea, lit candles, cuddles and crafting with Kajsa!

Do you enjoy winter or what do you do to survive until spring?

Take care!

Clean and Simple Card

Oh, how I love these stamps - the sentiments from Unity Stamp (Empowered Words):


This time I've made a clean and simple card - a card I gave to one of my colleagues a couple of days ago. She also loved the sentiments. :)

If you want to know more abour the card you can check Pyssloteket's blog for list of materials. I made one post with both my Halloween treat box and this card, so you might have seen the card already. ;)

Take care!

Halloween treat box

Halloween is closing in and in Pyssloteket's blog I'm showing a little treat box today:


I was reminded yesterday evening that it's time to go and buy some sweets - I had a bunch of scary ghosts knocking at my door, and I had to rummage through my kitchen cupboards in search for something to offer them... I don't think all Swedes are sure of what exact date Halloween is, so I might need to be prepared. I'll take Kajsa shopping for sweets tomorrow! ;)

Take care & BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Distress Markers card

I might have mentioned my crush on Distress Markers, and this is one of the first stamps I coloured with my markers, and I'm not overly proud of it... I like how the card as a whole turned out, so you will just have to put up with the crappy colouring... ;)


 The sentiment is a stamp from a set from Unity Stamp (Empowered Words) - one of several wonderful stamps in that set. I just can't get enough of them right now!

Of course the coloured image is a Greeting Farm stamp - I just love them! Might have to pull my distress markers out and practise some more colouring, don't you think?! ;)

Take care!

MME + yellow

More My Mind's Eye... Since we're at it already, I might as well give you another one of those MME layouts that I've made. This one was for a big challenge in Inzpira's blog earlier this year. You were supposed to make something from a recipe, and this in what I created - a layout with lots of MME products on it:


Lots of yellow - just the way I like it! ;)

Take care!

A dear friend & MME

Some time ago I was published in the Swedish magazine Inzpira with this layout about one of my very best friends, Annika:


What I forgot about was to publish it in my own blog - but here it is, finally! ;)

I've used a lot of My Mind's Eye - one of my absolute favourite scrapbooking companies. I love their patterned papers, their brads, their stickers... I think that if I'd choose just ONE company to use scrapbooking supplies from, MME would be the ONE! :D

Take care,

Distress Markers

I've got a crush on my Distress Markers - they are so much fun to use for colouring and journaling.

I posted this card on Pyssloteket's blog today - I've used my DMs to colour the Gorjuss stamp:

Take care!!

Mother and Daughter

My daughter and me - the beauty and the beast?


This layout is published on Scrapptorget today. I'm so glad I'm a part of the team there, because the girls are all amazing - I feel so welcome and I really enjoy their company in cyberspace!

Don't forget about the fun challenge on the seven deadly sins (greed was the last one, a new one is coming up soon!), or the current sketch - we'll love to see your interpretations!!

Take care!!
