More 'Floral fantasy' from Scraps of Elegance / FabScraps

Hi friends! It's getting a little late here but I realized I have to do a  post now to make good use of the fact that the internet is actually working att the moment :-)

I have another page and a couple of cards to share from Scraps of Elegance latest kit  'Floral Fantasy'. I have already used quite a few of the abundant Graphic 45 sheets from the kit and this page uses the FabScraps collection 'French heirloom'. The large cabbage roses on the papers are so exquisite!!

This is  a very layered page with soo many fussy cut elements and I have raised all the cut-out roses 
with pop dots to emphasize both the layering and the texture. 
I also embellished with lots of tiny Bisque-coloured pearls from a small bottle of liquid pearls.

The gorgeous flowers are from Prima Marketing and are called Adelynn/Ageless.
They are in the beautiful flower add on. I have pre-ordered it to make sure I don't miss out as these add ons sell out quickly!!

I love the trellis design of the green burlap papers. It lends itself to the interesting look of cutting away a few of the 'diamond shapes' to reveal a different colour. I like how it lightens the mood a bit on these  papers soo laden with grandeur of yonderyears.

 I used some Prima alpha stickers from my stash for the title.
I made it fairly simple as the papers were enough in themselves. I remember so well all the 
magical fun we had spreading dandelion seeds all over the garden :-)

 I raised all the fussy cut elements with popsdots for a layered and textured page.

 I also made two cards with this kit. 
The papers on these are by Graphic 45 and are called 'Botanical Tea'.

The flower on the card is the same kind as those on the layout an the stickers as well.

The large journaling cards and the stamps are cut out from the different patterned papers. 

That was all for now!! I hope you liked what you saw and if you have the kit; Happy Creating!!

'Family Fun' Scraps of Elegance using Graphic 45 Botanical Tea.

 Hi peeps and happy 'hump day'. From here on it's just a downhill ride to the weekend.
Today I want to share one of my pages that I did using the Graphic 45 collection 'Botanical Tea' 
that was in my latest DT kit from awesome Scraps of Elegance.
I have shared a couple of pages already in some previous posts here and the kit has sooo much more left for me to create with! If you are interested in subscribing to a kit look HERE.

This is what I made:

 The resin bannister is from the embellishment add on. I fussy cut a lot of flowers from the beautiful patterned papers. and also added some mini roses from Papirdesign and from Prima.

The photo is from an outing last summer when my sister and niece came to visit and we wanted to do something fun for all of us. We went to ride a kind of tandem bike on old (no longer in use) railroad tracks. It was really so much fun. I want to do it again this summer!!

The pink gardnia used to be white, but I painted it with the Silks 'Pink Grapefruit' from a previous kit.

 I added a large blue bow to tie together the small blue accents here and there on my page.

Here is a shot of the February kit. 
Unfortunately the main kit is sold out but you may be able to get some of the add ons still.


So happy you came over today to have a peek at my latest page. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!!

One more page with the Scraps of Elegance March kit using the 'Botanical Tea' collection.

The other day I shared the very first page that I ever made using Graphic 45 papers. 
I always think their lines look lovely but up until now I have found them quite difficult to use 
and hard to cut into (because they are so pretty).
With the recent line 'Botanical Tea', however, all those thoughts disappeared. As usual Melinda Kelly of SOE kits have picked an excellent collection of papers and embellishments and the kit, Floral Fantasy, is such a delight to work with! You can see the photos of the kit here and also buy it  HERE.

I fussy cut various elements from the detailed G45 papers and added a few dimensional flowers to go with them. In the flower add on was a large Prima jute flower that I coloured using some paint from a previous kit. I used the Silks 'Pink Grapefruit' paint. 

 In the kit was also a sheet with small diecut file folders and patterned tags to go with them. 
Some of them have sentiments on them like this one that says 'Just because'. 
The large white flower is by Manor House Creations.

 I think the papers here go so well with the sweet picture of our pampered kitten Lady. She has such beautiful green eyes. And also I do love polka dots and these on green are especially cute! 
I raised some of the details with pop dots.

 I used a CraftersWorkshop stencil 'Chicken Wire' size 6x6 for my background and the mini roses are by various, including papirdesign and I am Roses.

Even though it is raining here at the moment there is a distinct promise of Spring in the air. 
The temperature has been slowly rising and today, Saturday, is longer and lighter than yesterday. 
It is so nice to know that the sun 'has turned' as we say here and that hopefully the best is yet to come!

Thanks for visiting here today!
I am thrilled for every little comment you feel like leaving me here and hopefully you were able to find a detail or two to inspire you! Any questions are welcome.

Scraps of Elegance kits, March reveal *Floral Fantasy* Graphic 45.

I love to be on the Scraps of Elegance kits design team!
 We allways receive such gorgeous material to work with!!

Today I am sharing the beautiful and feminine March 2014 kit and my first page using it!!
Firstly; here is a picture of the kit without the add ons:
It is called  Floral Fantasy.
 I picked out a few sheets of papers and some embellishments from Graphic 45 and also added a few Prima flowers.

I fussy cut some flowers and a small butterfly as well as some 'floral postage stamps'.

 I used the G45 Botanical Tea Collection Tags & Pockets as embellishments on my page. You can see two of the tags used as banners at the top of the page. The floral designs of this collection are utterly beautiful!!

I picked some pretty Prima flowers with different shapes that were such a great match to my Miss B's jacket in the photo. We had my darling sister and niece visiting from Norway and the photo was taken on one of our outings.We went to the countryside to ride 'cykeldressin'. I tried to find a good translation but it didn't sound right. Anyway it's kind of like riding a tandem bike on old railway tracks (not still in use). FUN!!

One of the sheets had six double sided cards to cut out. They can be used as embellishments like this or maybe to make cards. I will do that as well I think!

As you can see the colours and designs of the Botanical tea collection are gorgeous!! I will have a lot of fun with this kit!!

And here are some pictures of the add ons:
Patterned paper:

 Coordinated paper:

Birthday card for a friend, (Papirdesign).

Hei, i dag vil jeg vise ett lite bursdagskort jag har laget til en venn.
Jeg har klödd litt i fingrene etter å lage med de nye arkene, og har fått gjort en hel del siden de kom , men to av layoutene er fremdeles litt 'hemlige' siden de skal väre med i ett online magasin den 1 april.
Her er iallefall kortet mitt:

Hi there! Today I want to share a card made with the latest collection 'Forventning' (means 'Anticipation') from Papirdesign. I have actually made a couple of pages, but cannot share as they will be in my fave online magazine on April 1st. But without further ado; here's my card that I made for a friend:

 Og her kommer ett lite närbilde:

And a closeup:

 Ennu en gang har jeg kunnet nyte av alle de fine Papirdesign blomstene for mitt prosjekt!

Once again I enjoyed working with loads of gorgeous Papirdesign flowers!

Forventning: Gratulerer, rosa
Forcventning: Jacob og Jenny
Geranium rosa pakke, 
Chipboard, jente
Grönne blad, 


Thanks for dropping by!!

Last share of February Scraps of Elegance kit 'Love Always'.

Hello my friends, I have been a bad blogger lately.
To make up for that I'll share TWO pages today that I made with the February kit from Scraps of Elegance
I should have posted these already  a few days ago as there is a NEW wonderful kit out for March that I will share with you in a couple of days . I've been having some computer issues (Thank heaven for mobile phone internet so I can still keep in touch,...) but today I'm on the PC again!

I have used the 'Smitten' line from Authentique here as well as some bits from My Minds Eye Record It 'Heirloom'.
I prepared a few close ups ( if too many feel free to scroll down LOL!)

I used one of Ingvild Bolmes little metal zippers as an embellishment and lots of stamps ans flowers. 

I used a stencil to take break up the repeated pattern of hearts and make it  less obvious in some areas.

I used a series of three cute photos of youngest DD and our kitte, Lady. It's an easy way to add more that just the one photo to your page.

And now for my second page for today;

Even here the main papers are from Authentique. I think they nailed it with this line, and if you like you could even say I was 'Smitten',...LOL! Again I use a series of three pictures. These were taken in Stockholm when we went up for her students visa to the US. She has been across the big sea since October now and we can't wait to have her back here.

I used the chandelier sprays from the kit to make little sprigs of chrystals and roses. I was meaning to post a short picture tuturial and it may come one day next week.

There was a pot of lovely pink glitter in the kit, and below you can see how I added some to the Martha Stewart butterfly. The flowers all got a lick of white paint to make them a little more 'shabby'.

The title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. 
The word 'Delightful' is a cutfile and 'Girl' is just simply written in my selected font and then cut.

That's all for now. 
 I had a happy mail some days ago and I am waiting to hear how soon I can tell you all about it!! 
I can't wait!! Hope to see you back soon so I can tell you about it!! <3
Take care!
