The Piggie Train

This summer me, Kajsa, and my brother's family took a fun day trip to a theme park for younger kids. Both Kajsa and her cousin Julius enjoyed the attractions, and on this page that I'm showing @ Scrapptorget today, they are waiting for their turn to ride the piggie train:

I've used lots of washi tape and flowers - you can find loads at Pyssloteket, as well as the wood veneer decorations. I just love playing with white + lots of bright colours, and since the kids had such sparkly colours on here, I could do just that! ;-) Lucky me!

Take care!

Colourful B-day Card

I have a colleague who turns 50 this week, and of course I wanted to be the one to create a card for her. She's a very colourful person, so the card had to reflect that, too - this is what I made:

I haven't had so much time to be crafty lately, just had little moments to prepare a few projects that I hope to finish this week. ;-) There will be a December countdown @ Scrapptorget, you know that, don't you...? ;-) AND a few of those projects I was talking about might just show up there...

Take care!

Sketch @ Scrapptorget

Today we're giving you a sketch to be inspired by @ Scrapptorget. I've drawn the sketch and I've made a card after it. To be honest, I did the card first - THEN I drew the sketch... ;-) That's another way of doing it, and I know I'm not the only one, so that can't be all wrong, right?

Here's both the sketch and my card:

Christmas is Coming...

...and on Scrapptorget we're counting down from the 1st to the 24th of December. Each day we'll show something altered or some kind of homemade decoration or Christmas card for you to be inspired by. 

* * *

Förra året bjöd vi på Scrapptorget på extra mycket julinspiration i form av olika kortvikningar inför jul, och såklart kommer vi att ha vår julkalender i år också. I år kommer vi dock att inrikta oss på att visa er olika saker att altra/förändra och att dekorera med inför den stundande julen. Varje dag den 1 till och med den 24 december kommer vi att visa upp någon form av juldekoration eller altrad kreation. och vi hoppas såklart att vi ska kunna bjuda på något som inspirerar så många som möjligt!
Så, den 1 december kör vi igång – varmt välkomna!

Take care!

Kajsa @ Sea

A few weeks ago I had a workshop at Pyssloteket where I taught vintage/shabby chic the Tettiz way. The page I made was this:

The title says "At Sea" and the picture is from the ferry between the Swedish island Gotland and the mainland - my daughter really enjoy the journey, and so did I! We're definitely going back next year!

If you are curious about what materials I've used - head on over to Pyssloteket's blogg.

Challenge @ Scrapidoo

I've made another Christmas card! O.O

This one is made for a challenge at Scrapidoo - you'll find the challenge in their message board - and you were supposed to make a Christmas card and NOT use the colours red and green. My card looks like this:

I realised, after making this card, that I need to buy some more Stickles Star Dust - I ran out and I really want to use it again - and again - and again! I seem to go nuts with my Stickles every year when it's Christmas card-making time... ;-)

Favourite Flower

One of my creations from the crop in Enköping earlier this autumn was this one. It was a colour challenge and I was assigned the colours purple and beige - SO not my ordinary colours!

I'm sorry about the crappy quality of the photo - I never seem to have time to take photos of my creations when there is still light outside. Really don't enjoy this time of year in so many ways, but it's really annoying when you have to plan your photography to the few hours of daylight there are. Not many in Sweden, let me tell you...  Well, it will be warmer and more light in a few months time again! ;-)

Take care!

A Day @ the Beach

A page about the lovely times we had this summer at Gotland. It was my first ever trip there, and of course Kajsa's too. We both loved it and we hope to go there next year again.

I've used one of the new Tim Holtz Layering Stencils, the one called Dot Fade - I just LOVE it! :D I will have to watch it so I don't overdose on it... ;-) You can find it in Pyssloteket's webb shop.

Don't you just love the sea monster in the background of the photo...?

Xmas Cards @ Svensk Scrapbooking

One of the challenges over @ Svensk Scrapbooking recently was to make three Christmas cards that were similar in colour and style. I made these three cards:

It's quite remarkable that I've already started on this year's Christmas cards - the Grinch! - but it feels pretty ok. Maybe I don't have to send out the cards just a few days before Christmas this year...?

Take care!

November Challenge @ Hobbyworld

Malin - Lillpiga made an inspiring sketch for the November challenge @ Hobbyworld, and I tried to create a layout.

The little rascal who tried my glasses on is my nephew, Julius, the cutest in the world!! He had problems pronouncing my name, so instead of saying my name "Jeanette" he said "Kanett" - hence the title of the page.

There are layers and loads of flowers, and also a few enamel dots. I've used lovely patterned papers from MME - one of my favourites. ♥♥♥

Take care!

Romantic card

One of my dearest friends asked me if I could make a card for her grandmother, who turned 80 earlier this autumn. Of course I could! I figured a romantic shabby chic card would suit my friend's grandmother, and this is how the card turned out:

You can find the details about the card on Pyssloteket's blog - now with inlinkz to make it easier to find out what supplies I've used for my creations! :)

Take care!
