Two 2-pagers !

Yesterday it was raining hard and DD had a friend over to play with so I got pleanty of me time. After reading a book I felt the urge to spend some time in my very clean (yes I cleaned it well last week) scraproom.

I have alot of pics I want to scrap of Sunneva and I have not been the best scrapper in the world last months so you can imagine how happy I was when I had Two 2-pagers to show for after 3 hours of work.

Not only did I document 17 pics I also used alot of my old stash for these two lo's. I could not be happier :-)

Anyhow here are the lo's. First I have to say sorry for the bad scan of the first one. For some reason my scans always go wrong when I use white background paper.

The title is: Friends.
Supplies: Bazzill, Fancy Pants, MME, SEI, Tinkering Ink. Create paper, Prima, Jenni Bowlin, Maya Road, Tim Holtz, Queen & Co, Making memories and Elle's Studio. Everything on this lo's is "old" except the Jenni Bowlin flower "stickers" and Elle's Studio journaling spot.

This one here has the title: Gerpla's Christmas show. Some of the pics are not too good since Sunneva was so far away from us but it is important for me to document this so I have to use what I got.

Supplies: Bazzill, Basic grey, Prima, Doodlebug, Punch and Queen and co.

A Pink Paislee LO

We don't have many Scrap stores here in Iceland. There is this one online store called Scrap and fun and they are having a fun Summer game. Anna Sigga posts sketches that we can work with. I totally love working with sketches so this is perfect for me. Yesterday I really wanted to scrap. I had the time but I did not have the mojo until I saw this sketch. I followed the sketch 100% and this is the outcome.
Title: The Grass Garden (I know it sound funny in english)
Supplies: Pink Paislee papers and embellies, Bazzill, Martha Steward punch, Basic grey stamp, StazOn ink, Prima Letters and bling and a Doodlebug ric rac.

New mixed with old

I started this LO yesterday and finshed it today. I totally love MLS products and wanted to use a new paper from them I just bought. I mixed some new products with old. The felt embellies are from American crafts and I bought them "long" time ago. It feels good to use products that have been laying around from a long time. Other products are bazzill, making memories, Hambly and punches.

Anyhow I feel like I'm stuck with my LO's. In my mind the pretty much all look the same and lack all details and fun techniques.

Scrap World Cup challenge #2

I totally love Céline Navarro Scrap world Cup online class. Her challenges and techniques have really made me step outside of my comfort zone and try something new. I'm working on challenge #3 rigth and let me tell you it's so different from what I usually do. Let me give you a hint I have been playing with Cardboard paper, GESSO and glimmer spray this morning !!! Phewww I'm not sure how the outcoming is going to be but a least I'm trying something new.
Anyhow here is my take on challenge #2. The technique was fun making a faux stiching (around the circles).
The title is Noise.
Journaling: We moved into our House spring 2008. Your dad took down 3 really big trees in the Garden that Summer and you did not like the Noise he made while doing it.
Supplies: MME, Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts, Little yellow Bicycle and a ric rac.

Only five more days of work and then I'll start my Summer Vaction and only 9 days until we find out the sex of the baby :-) Can't wait !!!

Scrap World Cup Class with Céline Navarro

As I start feeling a little bit better (I'm still throwing up at week 18) I can feel the urge to scrap more. This Lo I did the other day. These pics are from last Summer. Sunneva just loved her Running bike that Summer (today she loves her bike much more). I'm trying to use up my old supplies and on this LO I used some really really old rub ons flowers and journaling box and mixed them up with some new supplies from My Little shoebox. The photo corners I got from my good friend Kathie.

I signed up for Céline Navarro Scrap World Cup online class. I really need to start to think outside the box and try new things otherwise my lo's will all look the same and I will get stuck in a rut forever !
Anyhow our first lesson was posted on friday. We got an amazing color combo (pink, blue and orange), a fun sketch and a fab technique to work with. I combined all three in this LO I call Disco Babes. The technique you can see on the blue tag. I stamped an image (a Studio Calico stamp) using embossing ink and clear embossing powder on a white bazzill. Then I inked the tag using blue Doodlebug ink and wiped the ink off the stamped embossed image. I love how this turned out and I will for sure be using this technique on other Lo's. I can't wait to try it out using floral and doodle stamps.
I used a lot a products on this LO ! Bazzill, Basic grey, Dream Streat papers, American Crafts, My little shoebox, Making memories, Prima, Queen & co eyelets, Doodlebug, Tim Holtz, Studio Calico, Pink Paislee, Martha Steward etc.

Upload day

Today is a DT upload day over at HSS so go and check out the gallery. This month I created 3 lo's using a new line from MME as the main product.
On this LO I used one of my fav pics of Sunneva from the year 2009 and the title is: My favorite photograph 2009. The journaling is about why this is one of my fav pics. Supplies I got from the HSS store: MME paper Be loved is the name of the line, Stickers Jenni Bowlin, Cardstock stickers Sassafras Lass, Cricut and Glue dots.

Here is a lo I made for my DH. We have been together for 15 years (counting from January 12 1995). The title is 15 years 15 Reasons. On the stripes I wrote 15 reasons why I love him. Supplies: I got from the HSS store: MME paper Be loved, Stickers , Cricut, Making memories, Bazzill, Imaginisce stickers and Glue dots.

This is a really personal LO that I felt I needed to create for myself. When I took these pics I was planning on doing a pregnancy mini album with my pregnancy story but things did not turn out that way for me this time around. To make a long story really short. We had been trying to get pregnant for some time. Finally it happend. Really soon I got extremly sick so sick I had to spend most of my time in the hospital or in bed at home. I did not work for more then 5 weeks counting from week 7. Then we found out that the pregnancy would not end with a baby in our arms and I had d&c on week 13,5. The title Angel baby comes from dream my niece dreamt before she even knew I was pregnant. About a week before we got the bad news about the baby my niece dreamt that she was visiting me at home. I had given birth to a little girl (the baby I lost was girl). She asked me in the dream why does she never cry. I looked at her and said she never cries because she is an Angel. My niece told my sister about this dream the morning after she dreamt and only week later we found out that this pregnancy would have to end. The pics are as you can see the pregnancy test, my first sonogram (at 6 weeks), the bruses on my hands after all the needles, the fluids I got when I was really sick and then the sonograms pics from 12 weeks.
Supplies: MME Be loved, Cricut, Making Memories and Glue dots.
