Project Live 2014: week 10

Finally I finished some details at week 10 and
here it is! I continued using Bo Bunny papers
and continued using some Becky Higgins kit
cards. This week I went to the north of Sweden,
it was white and snowy and as I went for a walk
at lunch I took some really nice winter pictures. 
Hence; I had to use and insert to be able to fit
 most of the nicest pictures in the spread!  

Letters are mostly from Basic Grey and all of
the flairs are hand made by talented girls in
our Swedish PL-group. Not many other decos
apart from a clip from Maya Road up left.

Thanks for popping by and welcome back!

Awsome at Las Ramblas

This is one of the most awesome layouts I 
have ever done! I mean; we used gesso, paint,
stamps, drops of paint, distressing and more!

Thanks to our inspirator Mezzanotte we made
our own patterned paper and tried out several
mediums to make our own customized back-
grounds. I combined yellow, a bit brown, pink 
and orange. We used masks and stencils.  

Here are some more details; I liked the tags
in the box for decorations of our choice:

Do you miss a title in big letters? I put a wood
veneer on top because I didn't feel the need for
a title in capital letters. What do you think?

Thanks for visiting and welcome back!

Project Life 2014 week 9

Blogging today for Creativica as well:

Week 9 is when school kids in Stockholm have
their holidays for sports. I don't work at school
nor do I have kids so I did no sports either. Here
is the spread for week 9:

But my friend Eve-Lina had some days off and
we met Monday to go and have a hot cup of
chocolate at a nice cafeteria in the Old Town 
called "The Chocolate Cup". After that we walked 
back and took some night pictures in the city 
centre of Stockholm. Left side:

Thursday I got "new" nails again; never tried a
zipper before so this was the first time! Friday I
went to Uppsala to work a couple of hours before
meeting with Greta for the first time. Greta is a 
16 year old exchange student from Germany,
and she was visiting Stockholm only today. So
we went eating some tacos at La Neta.  

Pink text next to the taco means "this is not a taco"
and refers to the difference between a real Mexican 
taco with a soft tortilla and this American style
imported taco that is commonly eaten in Sweden 
too. Anyway after eating some real Mexican tacos
we went taking some nice pictures of the view of
Stockholm by night.

Tack för senast

Today I show a card I made for Creativica

I have been using paper from Maja Design to 
make the circle more interesting, and a flower
 made by a friend. I liked the colour combination.

I even put pattern paper on the inside of the
card to get it to stand up more sturdy.

Here's a close-up:

There will be more next week!

Thanks for visiting the blog today!

Vintage ribbons

New challenge at Crafty Ribbons: 

"Ribbon and buttons"

Here's the card I made to give

I thought Kraft papers would make a
 nice combination with the new vintage
butterflies ribbons that you can see all 
about HERE.

So to participate, you link up your card
to our challenge blog HERE and then wait!

Mechanical Gardens

Here's my second card made at Stockholms 
Scrap and Pearl Event taking a workshop 
with Ania Dabrowska (aka Finnabair). I loved 
the class and it has given me a lot of inspiration 
to make cards with lots of layers!

Here's a close up:

Coming up next; a layout from another workshop
at Scrap and Pearl Event. Come back next
week and see what you think!

Mechanical Garden

Ania Dabrowska (aka Finnabair) claimed this
Saturday she's no card maker. But she made
a whole bunch of girls make pretty cards like
this on Stockholms Scrap and Pearls Event!

We had such fun even though we had to run;
we distressed, painted, cut and tried to fit it
all together like her card and this was one of
the two cards in one workshop called
click on the name and you will see her card.

PL 2014 Week 7 and 8

Week seven nothing important happened but I
still tried to document what happened at home
or at work normal days. 

I made these pages for a store called Creativica
and so I primarily used materials I was given and
also like a lot; Bo Bunny (Woodland Winter collection)
and the square alphas from Papir Design. 

Tags above and a star clip below are from TGR, 
a Danish chain store also selling som fun things 
useful for paper crafters.  

Below are mostly cards I made from the Bo 
Bunny papers, chipboards from the same 
collection, a few cards from Becky Higgins 
Seasons, a metal corner from Landstoken
and "today" sticker from Jilibean Soup.

Below is a sticker I got when I had to access
a public building for social services and needed 
to identify myself (as interpreter) so I kept it as
a souvenir for my PL-pages! Some letters are
from The Green Hyena February kit and there's
even a flair from our talented group of Swedish

Well I'm constantly learning more and more and
experimenting with all these materials and new
ays of scrapping! Any suggestions?

Happy together

Yesterday I attended a crop at the store 
Scrapdraken, participated in a challenge
making this layout using a sketch and I
actually won the challenge!

The two side pictures are special to me,
because during my years on Dominican 
Republic, pointing these flowers out to
the tourists, I never managed to get any
picture of the because they were growing
so high on the trees and I had just a little
standard camera. But on Tenerife past
December I was lucky to find a tree next to
a place with a wall with some trees in eye
level... Arern't they beautiful??

Materials used: cardstock, Prima pearl swirls,
letters I cut out with the Cuttlebug, a brad, three
daffodils (and below the middle one is a flower
made by crochet). 

Least, but not last: twill gold ribbons from my over all
favorite collection at Crafty Ribbons: Summer Breeze.

Use your brads

Hi; this was the last February post I made for
Creativica. Theme: Something old and 
something new and use your brads.

"Get better!" with two different kinds of brads
above and trying out the Martha Stewart punch
in the middle. Papers used here: Summertime 
from Maja Design. 

Below: "Encouragement" with three stars 
and two kinds of brads again. 

No punch but two different brads and a ribbon
in a matching colour is the last one for today.

This is all for today; now I have to pack bags
for going away to work in the north tomorrow!
