A window card for Hobbyworld

I really love making these window cards, and I know I should try some new ways and card folds, but I can't stop myself sometimes. They're easy to make and loads of fun to embellish. This card was delivered to my uncle in the beginning of July together with birthday gifts from me and my family. As you can see I wrote all our names with a calligraphy pen inside the card. 

If you want to know more about today's card, please feel free to visit Hobbyworld's blog where you can find list of supplies and more inspiratione from my talented team mates! 

Now, I think it's time to challenge myself to try some new card folds! Wish me luck! ;)

Take care!

Me and my mum

In today's post on Pyssloteket's blog I'm presenting a layout with me and my mother on a picture that was taken maaaany years ago. Mid or late 70s, I'd say. :) I just love the glasses on both of us...! 

I used a lot of colour on the background of this page since the photo is black and white. One of the reasons I love to scrap black and white - you are not bound to use any specific colours. :)

If you want to know what I created this page with, you are more than welcome to visit Pyssloteket's blog where there is a list of supplies. Make sure you check out the rest of the team's creations, too! :)

Take care!

Red-White-Blue Card

Today is my mother's birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!! I did not make her this particular card, but I thought a birthday card is appropriate to show today. I'll show you my mother's card another day, ok?

I hope that the sun will shine all day, and that my fab mum will have exactly the day she wants! :)

Take care!

Greetings from Gotland!

Right now I'm on vacation with my daugther Kajsa - we're on Gotland visiting good friends. When I prepared this post I thought it was a brilliant idea to post this layout with a picture from last year's vacation on Gotland. The picture is taken almost exactly a year ago - yesterday was a year ago to be exact! :) 

Since the page is about my little princess I've used some patterned papers and embellishments from Prima Marketing's collection Princess - I'm SO clever, am I not? ;)

For more information about my page - such as list of supplies - please feel free to visit Hobbyworld's blog! :)

Workshop with Frank Garcia

In May I had the opportunity to join a class with the talented and lovely Frank Garcia - I'm SO. HAPPY. I could make it to that class - thanks to a dear friend (you are the best, Nina!) who made it possible! The result of one creative evening lead by Mr Garcia is this:

If you ever have the chance to take one of Frank's classes - DO IT! You don't even have to wear your Nike's... ;) *teehee*

Take care!
