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.
