'My Whole Heart' , last share from August Scraps of Elegance kit

Today I have another page to share that I made with the gorgeous August  kit 'Raindrops on Roses' from Scraps of Elegance. 
I realize it had not been posted here yet so I wanted to show it before the reveal of the next kit.
With the heavy rains over the week end I have been kept busy with among other things a flooded basement, .....but here it is .-) It's a pretty short one today :-)
(A few posts down you can see a picture with the kit contents.)

This is one of the lovely Authentique Papers from the kit with a pretty script pattern. 
Flowers are Petaloo Dahlias and a few Prima mini roses.
You can also see a cute paperclip in the smaller cluster and that is also is by Prima. 
I used a couple of stencils on here too that I think give a great effect.
In the SOE shop you can also find a few kinds of different stencils for a similar look.

Also included in the kit ia a pack of  lovely thick and chunky chipboard from Blue Fern and I have used some of it here both sides of my photo.

Thanks for looking. Hope to see you back here again soon! :-)

'At the Lighthouse' for Papirdesign.

Hi there friends!
Today I want to share a new page with a couple of the latest collections from Norwegian manufacturer Papirdesign.
Thiose of you who are followers of Papirdesign on Facebook will have seen some pictures of the latest collection from the fair and I can tell you they are just as pretty in real life :-)

The lovely blue tones look pretty with this picture taken by my lovely sister on a recent holiday here. I picked the orange from my t-shirt in the picture and must say that to me it's a winning combination! :-)

For this page I found that the set with summerbuttons is perfect and of course even here the colour is a great match!

To add to the seaside feeling of my page I glued down a couple of punched pappers strips. I think they look a little like waves,...don't you? Extra added details are the diecut Frameworks Trellies and the leaves from a Framelits set from Sizzix.

Thanks for looking in! Hope I'll see you here again soon!

A couple of pages for Scraps of Elegance using the August kit.

Hi, today I have a cpouple of pages to share made with the 'Raindrops on Roses' kit from 
Scraps of Elegance. These are both using the same collection but the look is totally different.

My first page is in a classic pink/black/white combination.

Here are several close ups. 
I know I love to look at close ups when I visit blogs so I'll assume you are the same :-)

 The larger flowers are Prima and all from Scraps of Elegance kits, and even the grey and black 
mini roses. The black chalkboard frames are by Melissa Frances.

I made the doilies with my Cheery Lynn dies. The title is made with a sticker from the sticker sheet. I just cut it into three pieces because that would look  better on my page.

I used one of my new Sizzix dies to make the leaves. I like the 'strict' look of them.

And now for my second page for this post:

This is a much 'softer' page and the colours are very different as well. I used the lovely script-paper from the Authentique Paper collection called 'Pretty'.

The beautiful 'Dahlias' by Petaloo come in three shades of pink, and there is a packet of smaller ones too that look so adorable.

I have used a combination of die cut butterflies using awesome Sizzix dies, and some from the collection pack by Heidi Swapp that came with my kit. They are from the collection 'Dreamy'

The title I have used is also from the Heidi Swapp ephemera pack, as well as the little sparks and the patterned butterflies. The little sentiments are from the Authentique Paper sticker sheet.

I used gesso and three different stencils for this ayout and even some distress ink through a 
stencil as well.

 The swirl was made with a Sizzix die.

That was all for today! I hope you were not too overwhelmed by the many pictures :-)
Thanks for any comments you leave me. I always love to read your feed back!
