You are fabulous! -for Papirdesign

  When I  was first invited to the Papirdesign DT  I received a huge box of paper collections old and new as well as an enormous pile of gorgeous embellishmnt of different kinds. For the page in todays post I decided to dive deep into my box and pick a mixture of all the different papers. All those beautiful designs really deserve to get on a page now and then and not be forgotten!
 I love this light blue girls page with my youngest DD.

I made this page with inspiration from the gorgeous sketch at Life. Paper. Scrapbook.

I really like the look of this paper with the weathered boards. Makes me think of Summer :-)
It actually was produced as part of a Winter-collection ... So versatile!
 I layered several patterned papers with my photos on top. The embellishments are mainly from Papirdesign,...of course,...there is so much to choose from!!
 The cute banners were cut from a patterned paper with banners and jeans-pockets.

 I used popdots to lift my stars up from the page.

 I used:

 Vintertid - Iskrystall (woodboards)
Herman og Emilie - Lillebror
Lykke till
Konfirmant, gutt
Chipboard ord rosa,
Chipboard stjerner blå og rosa
Båndpakke, blå
Halvperler, blå/vit
Miniroser, diverse farger
Alfabet, rosa

My first page using the new Inkido collection 'Happy Christmas'.

'Liten tomte tittar ut' is the title of this new page and it is about Beatrice wearing her long Santa-hat that we had been looking to buy in so many places before we found it.

I used the latest beautiful collection from Inkido called ''Happy Christmas'' for this page.

 The small chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs, and the large one is from Dusty Attic.
 I made my title using the Silhouette Cameo. It has become such a fun tool to play wth!

I wanted to use the pretty tags on my page and ended up attatching them as an embellishment 
with a large bow.

I just wanted to get this post up before leaving for work this morning. 
I feel there is no need for a lot of words as there are so many pictures, and we all know that a picture says more than a 1000 words :-) LOL!

Have a good day everyone!!

Day 14 of the PaperHaus release party!! 'Sweet Summer' for Inkido.

Heellooo all you PaperHaus fans!! 

Welcome to day 14of our blog hop in honour of the newly released Fall Issue.
We are also celebrating the 1 year anniversary of PaperHaus Magazine! I am so delighted to be part of this wonderful publication! Below you'll find the link for the magazine.

 The Fall Splendor event is filled with inspiration from the  PaperHaus blog  and all the blogs taking part on the different days of the hop., so make sure you click through all these blog for inspiration! 

Also comment on every blog to get a chance to win an amazing daily prize! We sure hope you enjoy this inspirational blog hop. Do remember the Fall Splendor Blog Hop runs from September 1st to the 15th so just a couple more days to be inspired!

HERE is the link to the magazine.

 You should have arrived here from the PaperHaus blog.

And of course I have made a little something that I hope will give you som inspiration along the way.

 I played around with my Inkido supplies to make this page. 
I started out with a plain page with a tiny inconspicious pattern. After using stamps, gesso, masks and Ranger Distress Ink this background is far from plain ;-)

  I wanted some chevrons but didn't have any at hand so I decided to make some from some chipboard backing I received a while ago with some goodies. I measured and cut and I am actually thrilled with how they turned out. -Chipboard shapes economy style :-)

 I also used my sewing machine quite a lot for this background. 
First I stitched all around the edges. Then I made some zig-zagging in some areas along the edge, and finally I made some 'dents' into the sides of the page.

 The cute corrugated tag is also from Inkido and it received a treatment with paint and ink before I finally added my title to it. The stickers are textile ones from Prima.

Above you can see the stitching a bit better:

Sunday in a week I will have some step by step photos included in my post at the Inkido blog.

'Viva Las Vegas Stamps' is the sponsor of today's hop

A closer look at my GD page for Scrap Around the World.(And some bragging :-) )

This is the page I made recently as a guest designer for
Inkido was a previous sponsor and we were delighted when Helen asked us to interpret the September mood board. This is such a fun challenge!
I promised I would post some close ups of my page today so here goes .-)

And here is a picture of the mood board and sketch for Gayle's challenge.
Isn't it just gorgeous?!!

 I started out taking inspiration from the stripes (background sheet), the words 'flying' out from the head (my butterflies), the large title (also a quote) and the black and white photo of a person. 
I also did a loose interpretation of the available sketch, picking just a few  of the elements.

 I fussy cut a lot of tiny flowers from one of the sheets in the 'Beautiful Memories' collection.
I believe the flowers are are poppies.

 I picked Inkido's  small butterfly stamp  and combined it with some other butterflies that I cut out. They were all embellished with some bling and pearl stones. Inkido do these in several colours and they are so great to add to all kinds of projects.
  I find the internet is such a great source when you are searching for various inspiration, and for
this challenge I decided I needed a good quote. This was just one of several quotes that I found.
 After cutting out the words with my Silhouette Cameo I backed them with pink paper, except for the words black and white that I wanted to stand out against the background.
As you can see from this close up I also added some freestyle sewing with my machine. I find it adds a lot of interest without being intrusive or  taking anything away from the design.

Talking of design,.... I was very pleased to finf out this page was a winner in the latest challenge over at Scrap & Music. I have hardly taken part in any challenges lately but that is something I would like to change ,.)

Thanks for checking out my page today. :-)
There is still a lot of time to take part in the challenge at SATW, or why not Sabrinas September challenge at Inkido to use layers and borders?

'Sweet Baby Girl', for Papirdesign September challenge.

Hi all,I'd like to share a layout that I made for our current challenge on the Papirdesign blog.  
I was given permission to scrap this beautiful baby girl and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Just look at that adorable baby-face.
This months theme is 'baby''.

I also made this for the monthly challenge at Scrap for Help, to use a 'soda-clip'.

 As I used so many beautiful things here that I felt the urge to post quite a few close-ups for you.
I know I always say that Papirdesign has a very high quality to their products and I am very fortunate to be working with them. So true!!
You can also tell for yourself the products are beautiful!

I used the PD alphas for my title together with the chipboard word 'Baby' from the  family-themed chipboard set. The half pearls are made in lots of different colours.

Just look at that lovely pearl flourish. I love both the look and the finish on them. 
 I used a leftover piece here, and just look at the effect!
The mini roses come in a multitude of beautiful colours and the chipboard hearts come in several colours as well. Why not get some red ones for the Christmas-cards? :-)

 I hope you enjoyed my page and I would love for you to take part in our current monthly challenge.
We're looking forward to seeing what you create with the beautiful babyproducts from Papirdesign.

Two cards for Papirdesign.

Hi I'd to share something I made for the Papirdesign blogg.
I came up with  a couple of cards as I know so many who celebrate birthdays this time of year .

I used two sheets and some scraps to make these cards, and even if they may look different at first sight you'll quickly discover they are basically the same.
I used layering and my trusted sewing machine for this look.
 When you have made a few card-bases in this basic model your choises of embellishments of course have no limit and you can vary them no end.
 I hope you feel inspired to go make some cards of your own.
It is so nice to have a stash to pick from.

PD 10546 Elise -beck and front
PD 080407 Nostalgi
 Bling swirl -clear
Mini rose -pink
small flowers -white

*You Make my Life so Sweet* for Pandore,...and the new PaperHaus magazine is out!!!

This is my latest layout using a  fabulous new collection from my fave French manufacturer;
 Les papiers de Pandore.  This particular delightful collection that I have used here is called 'Itineraire Bis'. I love it sooo much!

 I used most of the 12 x 12 collection 'Itineraire Bis' for this page and also some of the 15X15 papers. The badge I used is from 'Lovely Birds'.

 I really like the photos of Beatrice that I use on this layout. 
They show her spunk and sazz and she also was quite happy to have her photo taken at the time :-)

 I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out some shapes, both words using my own fonts, 
and different arrows for decoration. The tiny camera is from Polish Wycinanka.

For my title I backed a larger piece that had some diecut my title and used the negative space 
from it. I backed it with different  papers to get the effect I was looking for.


The other thing I wanted to share was that the new fall issue of PaperHaus Magazine just went live.

HERE is the link to the magazine:


And HERE on the PaperHaus blog you can read all about it. 

The routine for the bloghop has been changed this time round and I will be joining in the 'release party' in a few days:-)
