Positive Thoughts

I have a notebook where I jot down positive thoughts and reflections, and I could not resist the urge to alter it - of course! ;) This is how it turned out after I had a go at it:

Prima Marketing Colour bloom sprays ftw!! :D

Please stop by Pyssloteket's blog for an update on supplies use for this project.

Pekka 50 - airplanes

A friend of the family asked me if I could make her brother a birthday card - and of course I wanted to! The gift was going to be money for an upcoming trip (the paper rolls in the last picture was going to be replaced by real money) and the birthday boy works with air traffic, so I thought this patterned paper was spot on!! :D

I used a calligrapy pen to write the names inside the card, so it was ready to "go" when I delivered it. 

Take care!

Father's Day Card

Some weeks ago we celebrated Father's Day here in Sweden and I made my dad this card:

It's VERY clean and simple, but I like it. The colours are awesome - it's fun to work with black and white plus one bright accent colour! :D Check out my post on Hobbyworld for more info.

Take care!

A Snug Moment - Mother and Daughter

Yesterday I posted this layout and a tutorial on how I made the background for it on Hobbyworld's blog. Check by there for supplies and the tutorial - but here is the layout and some detail pictures:

I've used a lot ot supplies from Prima Marketing on this one - flowers, stencils, colour bloom sprays, mediums - did I tell you I like Prima? :) I also found some of my punches I haven't used in a while - the one with some leaves and the border punch - I just love the look of the binding edge punch!

Take care!

Lovely Lake Mälaren

One of my fave days summer of 2014 was this day out on lake Mälaren. We spent the day with good friend going around by boat, stopping for a snack and some swimming, and then finished the day with dinner at their house - a fantastic day!

Can I have summer again soon? Please?

A Creative Lunatic

A couple of weeks ago I spent a whole weekend together with a lot of crafty girls - we had a blast! The three girls who organized this whole event also gave us a few challenges to sink our teeth into - one of them was to create a layout with a photo of ourselves and the phrase "I like myself because I...". My page roughly translates into "I like myself because I'm madly creative":

If you know me, you know I have a special liking for colours - especially rainbow colours (or close to it) - so this layout might not be very surprising. I like it. It cheers me up in these dull November times. Hope I can inspire and please someone else than myself. :)

Check out Pyssloteket's blog for the list of supplies. If you're curious.

Take care!

Gunilla - welcome to this side of 40! ;)

One of my good friends (one of my DT colleagues @ Pyssloteket) turned 40 recently and I was invited to her big party - it was great fun and I had big blisters under my feet afterwards! :) This dear friend has the same love for bright colours as I have, so I decided to make her a card that was easy to detect the maker - a card with sunflowers on!

Yellow, bling and sunflowers - yes, she guessed it right away! She KNEW it was a Tettiz-card! :)

Take care!

Colourful Hello

Hellooo there!

I forgot to blog this card, a card I made for Hobbyworld a couple of weeks ago. I went crazy with Primas new art basics, art ingredients and some paint from Martha Stewart crafts. It's really liberating to just do what comes to mind with paintbrush in hand - just let go of all thoughts about what you should do. I've realised that the creations I'm most happy with are the ones created when I don't think so much, but just create. :)

If you are curious about what supplies I've used, welcome to check it out on Hobbyworld's blog.

Take care!

The Christmas card factory is open for the season!

Yep, believe it or not - I have started creating Christmas cards now! The first one is for Hobbyworld and I have played with A LOT of glitter on this one... ;)

I just love the new Art basics line from Prima Marketing - signed Finnabair - it's so much fun to play with! The possibilities are endless and I just want to dip everything in Soft Matte gel and glitter. I try to hold back, but it's hard. We'll see how this year's Christmas cards look when they're done - I have a feeling we haven't seen the end of all this glitter yet. ;)

Please visit Hobbyworld's blog if you want to see the list of supplies and find more inspiration. Thank you for visiting!

Take care!
