Hi, I hope you are all happy and enjoying all the preparations for the holidays. 
I know I am certainly keeping busy as I am moving from my large house this new year as well as trying to find time for a little celebtration in between! 
Please keep me in your thoughts that all will go well :-)

Today I want to share with you a page I made with the new lovely kit from Scraps of Elegance. It is actually my last kit from SOE and I already know I'm going to miss them :-)
Also it features a photo of me, which is quite a rare thing :-)

And here is a picture of the monthly kit. 
I am always so delighted when it arrives as the content is so beautiful. 

The collections are Prima's 'Cigar Box Memories' and Graphic 45's 'Raining Cats and Dogs'

Click here to purchase the "Ever-True" Kit and Add Ons

And now for a couple of closeups:

I used the flowers from the 'Cigar Box Secrets' and also made a tag with the ATC block.
The large scallopped circle was made with a Sizzix die 

I used a Prima wooden leaf from a previous kit and some stickers from G45 'Raining Cats and Dogs ' collection.

Together with the lovely Prima rose here is also a piece of chipboard from G45 'Raining Cats and Dogs ' collection.

And finally a shot to show how I layered it all on top of eachother.

I hope yopu liked todays project. Have a great week end!!

I've been keeping a secret,....!!!!

Today I have some great news to share with you. 

I have known for quite a while now, but am delighted I'm allowed to 'spill the beans' now.

Ever since the Blue Fern Studio chipboards first came on the market I have loved the look of them.  And I have since found out that they are a great quality to work with so let me confess I am actually doing a little 'happy dance' here as I tell you 

I have been invited to be part of the Blue Fern Studios 2015 design team!! 

I already received a big pack of lovely Blue Fern Studios products and am longing to be able to dive in to them!! They are so gorgeous!! 

I'm proud to be part of such an  impressive lineup of scrapbook artists and you can see the whole announcement naming all the DT members for 2015 HERE

Two pages using 'House of Roses' from Lemoncraft.

Hi there! :-)

Today I have a couple of pages that I made with the lovely 'House of Roses' collection 
from Lemoncraft. I know many posts are about Winter and Christmas at the moment, but I made so many Christmas cards already I wanted to do something else.

The feature of this layout is a gorgeous photo of one of my beautiful sisters.
We often spend vacations together and this year we met up here at my home and made small excursions. This pic was taken on the beautiful Swedish island of Öland.

I fussy cut a lot of beautiful flowers from one of the 12x12 papers and also used the  A4 papers to cut out beautiful designs. There are lots of sweet butterflies, too. 
I even used the ribbons and the brads that belong to the 'House of Roses' collection. 
I used the ribbon as a frame.

I used a few awesome pieces of chipboard that are by Blue Fern Studio. I painted the hinges and the 'arrow-word' fabulous  brown by dabbing them with my ink pad.

I used some pop dots to lift up a few of the flower designs from the page. 
And I also used one of my favourite Sizzix dies here, the scallop circle.

And here is my second page:

I used a photo of the lovely view from my window. 
This is what I see when I am at my scrap-table too. :-)

Here are some close ups:

Even for this page I cut out a lot of beautiful designs to use as decoration. 
I made a tag for my title and added some brads from the 'House of Roses' collection
 to the center of my white hydrangeas.

I diecut some scalloped circles and used them to frame my layered design in the middle. 
Together with the lovely pink roses it looks very soft and feminine.

That was all for today I hope you like my two pages and that it was a little inspiration 
for you.Thanks for dropping by! :-)
