A Prima Page

Since I work as a teacher, my summer holidays have started now. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been that warm and summer-y yet, so I have taken some time by my craft table. Today I'll show you a page that I have made with a great deal of supplies from Prima Marketing. You can find all the details about the page on Hobbyworld's blog.

No, I wouldn't say that we're completely sane... Does that show..? ;)

Take care!

Gifts part 2

Min mamma ville ha två presentförpackningar och det enda önskemålet var att den enas skulle gå i turkost - den andra fick jag fria händer med. Jag stansade ut små mjölkkartonger och dekorerade dem med bland annat fina papper från My Mind's Eye och blommor från Prima och Marianne Design. Jag älskar de här små askarna - det är så kul att dekorera dem!

* * *

My mother wanted me to make two gift boxes and the only wish was that I used turquoise for one of them - the other one I could use any colours I wanted to. I cut out two small milk cartons and embellished them with lovely patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and flowers from Prima and Marianne Design among other things. I really love these small boxes - it's so much fun to embellish them!

Gifts part 1

Ibland får jag beställningar från vänner och familj - de vill att jag ska göra presentförpackningar, kort eller andra saker åt dem, och jag älskar verkligen det! Vanligtvis har de någon form av önskemål som t.ex. "hon gillar rosa, segelbåtar och kaffe" eller "jag vill ha något romantiskt", men ibland får jag fria händer att göra vad jag vill.

Idag kommer det två inlägg med "beställningsjobb" från mig - ett med en handskriven tavla och ett med två presentförpackningar som ser ut som söta små mjölkpaket. Först ut är tavlan - en enkel tavla med svart och vit cardstock som bas, texten är en kalligrafistil som heter Old English. Med en vit, enkel ram så blir det riktigt "clean & simple" och jag hoppas att mottagarna av denna gåva blir glada!

* * *

Sometimes friends and family ask me to make gift bags, cards and other things for them, and I really love to do that! Usually they have some guidelines such as "she loves pink, sailboats and coffee" or "I want something romantic", but every once in a while I can do pretty much what I'd like to.

Today I have two posts with creations made for friends and family to show - one with a handwritten text in a frame and one with two small gift boxes that look like milk cartons. First of all is the framed text - simply white and black cardstock in a simple white frame, the handwritten text is a calligraphy font called Old English. The frame, the text, and the black-and-white makes it very cleand & simple, and I hope the recipient of this gift will be happy with it!

YEY - art journaling

My poor art journal has been lonely for quite some time, so a while ago I took it out and played with some Prima Marketing color bloom spray. This resulted in a happy page with some bright colours:

I sprayed the color bloom spray in many layers, dabbed off some excess colour, sprayed some more, dried it with my heat tool, sprayed some more - yeah, you get it, don't you? Love the effect of colour drops and running colour! Love color bloom sprays!! :D

A notebook for Kajsa

I love to decorate my notebooks and now my daughter wanted to have one, too! I made her one with 
yellow and pink, just as she wished for. She was very pleased, so I couldn't be happier! :)

Project Life in a Sn@p!

These are two pages in my Sn@p album from Simple Stories - I just love the simplicity of just using patterned paper cards and photos and stickers and - BAM! - it's done! I have soooo many pictures to scrap and I will never ever be able to create something with them all. This is a fun and easy way of telling your story in a more clean & simple way:



I have used products from for example Kaisercraft, Simple Stories, and Tim Holtz. More details can be found @ Pyssloteket.

Two Chicks and Four Birds

Yesterday I posted this yellow/brown page on Hobbyworld's blog, and I just love how it turned out! Probably much of it has to do with the fact that I've used my favourite colours - yellow, brown, and white. ;) 

If you want to know more about the supplies used for this page, or perhaps find some more inspiration from the rest of the team - please visit Hobbyworld! There is always heaps of inspiration from the talented designteam and every month there is a new challenge. Welcome!

So Cute!

I was challenged by an EVIL ;) friend who wanted me to create something in purple. Purple. My least favourite colour. It's hard. BUT, I never back down from a challenge like that, so I finally made this page - a VERY purple page: 

A fun, but difficult challenge - very pleased with the result, though! :)

More info about the page on Pyssloteket's blog.

Take care!
