A new design team for me. I am over the moon!!!

Hi friends! 
I am so excited today to tell you about another great design opportunity that has opened up for me!  
I received a very sweet and friendly message from Line in Norway, my home country as some of you may remember, asking me if I would like to design for her company. I checked out her products and quickly decided that this was something I would love to do!

Today I am being introduced on the Papirdesign blog and I would like to share the pages I made for them with you as well.

Be warned; there are soo many photos!
If you like you can treat this as two blogposts and come back for the second part after dinner;...LOL!

Since I am posting many closeups because I think you should see the beautiful products I will keep my words to a minimum today. This post will be long enough....

I fussy-cut the roses from one of Papirdesigns sheets of vintage images. I think they are so pretty!

Papirdesign produce some lovely pearl and chrystal swirls and on this page I have cut pieces from one and used in different parts of the design.

I made the 'brick wall' using a small sized Crafters Workshop stencil and gesso. I made a grid on the paper with my sewing machine.

And now for the second page: ta taaaaa I hope you like PURPLE!
I LOVE purple!!!

This page is about Beatrice and her uncle/my brother. 
I took this photo when we went to Norway this Summer. It is so nice to get together with family.

I always loved the mix of soft yellow with delightful purple. 
I think there is something very delicate and feminine to the combination.
At Papirdesigh they produce some lovely delicate lace that I used to make the central circular design .
The lace and ribbon come in a large variety of colours as well as their half pearls and not to mention the roses,...oh the roses....Sigh!
I hope you have not tired of my close ups yet,...because here are some more :-) :

Being a lover of all things flower I was delighted to see the wide assortment of mini roses etc that they have. I am happy to say that everything on these los are by Papirdesign.

The half pearls come in all kinds of shades and with a variety of matching colours in each package.
The yellow letter stickers are fabulous and also come in many colours.

You see that little chipboard sitting there in the roses?  That's Norwegian for 'A hug for you'.
I was lucky they do it in purple :-)

Those yellow twiney things are the long ends that I cut off the cherryflowers. I thought they had some decorative potential!

Well done if you made it all the way here. Now I think we both need a break...LOL
Thanks for dropping by!
