3 products + stamp

Welcome to the last TIOT in August!
This time Suzanne would like us to use 3 products + a stamp from the SCACD store.
I decided to try to make a vintage and distressed looking card (almost for the very first time - those of you that follow me on my blog know that I'm a "colour girl" and love strong colours ;-)

I decided to use my Iris Collage stamp. Distressed the edges on the DP, Added pearls and Maya Road chipboard butterflies. Sentiment from my friend Tammi. I also used crackle paint on the distressed DP edges.
Hope you like it and will join us for the fun.

Back to school

Happy Monday to you all!

It's time for a new BnW challenge and this time Kathy has chosen "Back to school".
Well - I decided to make this picnic box. I thought that it would be nice to keep the memories from Summer in there + of course also put in some treats for the ones going back to school (well - maybe it will work for us adults as well - we also need treats for going back to work -right??)

* I coloured little Princess Tales with my copics. Added a few flowers, cute little butterfly and pearls of course ;-) Here's a pic of how the box looks like when you open one of the sides.

Please note - my new long nails ;-) I finally decided to "buy" some new nails for my friends wedding (Aug 28th). I love them, but I did not expect that it would be harder for me to craft with them *lol*. You should see me struggling with removing the plastic cover from the adhesives......hubby has rescued me a few times - so I've made him stay up longer just to help me out. So if anyone has any tricks or tips on how to craft with acrylic nails - please let me now :-)

Kramis and have a wonderful Monday,

Tender Loving Care

Happy Tuesday to you all!

Today I have the pleasure to show you one of the new cuties from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD upcoming release. The stamps will be available August 27th - so make sure that you get your hands on them!

I got the honor to show you cute little TLC. I coloured her with my copics.Then I got the idea to make a picture for my husband's little niece Olivia (born in June) that would be perfect for her room. I used Sei Velvet Paper as the background and then of course the Olivia Basic Grey DP ;-). Added some pearl hearts that I had in my stash and cut out Olivia in Sei Velvet Paper.  Here's a picture of it - before I framed it:

And here's one with the final project.

Hope you'll like her as much as I do. There are more new cuties up for you to look at - if you pop over to Kim - Jacquie - Marti. There will be more cuties on display during the week - so make sure you read the details on the store blog and don't miss the candy!

Looking fwd to hear from you!

My sister Pernilla's brother-in-law Henric is getting married to his Caroline today!
I got the honor to make the wedding card that my sister and her family will give them together with a secret gift of course.

Coloured "Wedding Couple" with my copics. DP from my stash.

Cut them out with my nesties. Added flowers and pearl hearts and a ribbon.
Hope you like it and sorry for the short post today - I'm busy with the preparations for next Saturday - when my friend Anne (from Vargön) marry her sweet Stephen (from Basingstoke)

Enjoy your weekend!

Stencil it!

Welcome to TIOT - where the theme is Stencil it!

I've coloured little Aurora - Bee mine with my Distress Refill inks. Need to practise more, but it's fun to step outside of the "comfort zone" sometimes. Don't know if it's the fact that FAll are getting closer - but it def. inspired me to what colours to use ;-)

The DPs used are from SU and ribbon from my stash. I used my stencil "Gathered Flowers" and sprayed Maya Road Mist over it - giving the orange DP a shimmering look. Oh - of course - added a few "real flowers" as well :-)

So what do you do with your stencils? Please pop over to the SCACD blog and join us for the fun!

BnW Challenge - Warm colours - Change from Summer to Fall

It's Monday again and we have a new challenge for you.

Don't know if Fall is on it's way where you live - but it certainly is here in Sweden. Yesterday we were very brave and went to the beach with my sister's and families. Well - I would not say that I would stay in the water for hours - but at least I went in ;-)
Today it's my turn to host the BnW challenge and I would love to see your creations using warm colours - the colours that you think of when the season is changing from Summer to Fall.

I decided to use Fairy Play and coloured her with my copics.

DP from SU, Roses and leaves from RoP, Viva Decor Paper pen for pearls and leaves,
SEI Velvet Paper.

Hope you would like to join us.

New Victoria Case, Flower Soft and Viva

Welcome to this week's TIOT.

This time we would like to see one of the latest Victoria Case for SCACD stamps together with Flower Soft and Viva on your projects.

I coloured little Sprite (she's only available in the latest VC kit for SCACD) with my copics.
Then I thought that I should get an early start this year - so that's why I ended up with this X-mas card *lol*.

I added Flower Soft between the DPs - instead of a ribbon + some Flower Soft on her dress. Then I tied a little matching ribbon from my stash and made sure that it will hold - by using the Viva Decor Pearl pen. The sentiment "God Jul" = Merry X-mas in Swedish - was on the DP.

Hope you will join us for the fun!

Fun in the Sun

Welcome to the very first BnW challenge in August - hosted by our supertalented and sweet Kathrin. Kathrin would like us to make something showing "Fun in the Sun".

I decided to colour A-Merry-Go with my copics. I think she's having a lot of fun - don't you *lol*. Then I wanted to do something other than a card - so I made a post-it-note holder. It was a long time since I made one and they are always useful and appreciated as a small gift.
Here's a pic of how it looks like on the inside. I covered the paper coasters (that I've purchased from the very talented Angie Juda) with the DP. Added a little ribbon and of course some roses.

Well - I'm keeping the post short today - I have a few vacation days left - so I better use my time and enjoy it as much as I can and play soccer with Isac instead.

Kramis and hope you join us
