Just wanted to say ...


I made a card with some favourite 
patterned papers from Basic Grey 
and a stamp with the text: 

"Just wanted to say 'Congratulations' "

The ribbon is called Cupcakes small
and you find it at Crafty Ribbons.
The leaves are from YouDo.

I made the flowers myself punching 
flowers from middle sized retro flower
punch and putting them together three 
and three with a brad and finally adding 
some glitterglue.

I like ...

I like / Me gusta / Jag gillar... 

is the title of my new LO inspired by the
techniques we learned las week at Stockholm
Scrap Class with Anna Dabrowska (Finnabair). 
But first I prepared my own papperned paper
spraying with Dylusions sprays using some 
elements from Studio Calico to mask and get 
arrows on my paper.  

Well after that I tried another product I bought 
recently; Frantage embossing enamel from 
En Liten Butik. Since I had not tried it before 
I just spread it out over the sprayed my cardstock
 randomly and dried it. 
I really like how it turned out! 

Then I decorated with some flowers underneath 
the cardstock I made into a "papperned paper" 
that I attached to a black cardstock. And then
some more decorations around my photos. I like
the Inkido flower decos I bought at Skaparlusten!

Of course I also put some washitape on my LO!
And little flowers with a rhinestone, and some
glitterglue on the arrow, etc etc.

So this is my layout "I like" for the challenge at
Creativica for October. I like it, have a look
HERE and participate making an interpretation
of "I like" you too!! 

The pictures are from our trip to Barcelona
in September and the lady next to me is my
dear mother that also likes Barcelona!

Industrial Baroque

Stockholm Scrap class also offered workshops
with Anna Dabrowska, also called Finnabair.  
I chose the class called Industrial Baroque and
look what I came up with after 4 hours:

We distressed, inked, glued and dried, sprayed 
and dried, painted, dried and finally stamped
some circles to finish the layout! And then we
let it dry before we could move...

Here are some details of the embellishments;
there are flowers, grunge stuff, buttons, 
things made of metal, trinkets ...  

... wooden veneers, numbers, lace...

... brads, flowers divided into more than 
one to make supplies last...

And finally everything sealed with spray
and a last touch of metallic paint!

It was a great class! If you ever have the 
opportunity to do a class or workshop with
Anna; just do it! It doesn't matter if you
don't intend to convert your style or not - 
but go, see, try it and learn new techniques!

Pan Pastels

Yesterday I attended an interesting 
workshop with Donna Downey at Stockholm
Scrap Class - and look what I made: A canvas
using pan pastels, fixative spray (that smells
really bad), stamps and a couple of tags.

I quite like this "painting" in pink and
turquoise with black details! What do 
you think?

Tomorrow I'll show you what we did
at today's class with Finnabair!

EN DAG I MITT LIV - temat för den första
oktoberutmaningen hos Fiebre de Scrap-
book por la noche! Skissen ser du nedan:

Un día en mi vida; tema del reto de la primera
Elegí hacer un LO con fotos del 18 de mayo del 
 2013, un día muy especial en mi vida, cuando 
participé en un evento de scrap organizado 
por KDS en Barcelona. El día constó no sólo de
scrap, sino también fue lleno de alegría, 
 nuevas personas y técnicas, sol en las
calles de la linda ciudad y muchas fotos. 

He usado papeles de ILS (I love Scrap) de
Anna-Maria Wolniak y Nebri Kujawska en 
Polonia y de Glitz Design (el de los bigotes). 

Las letras son las Color Magic de Heidi 
Swapp y de las que cambian de color 
cuando las echas spray. Sweet Cherry 
Color Shine he utilizado en este LO. 

Hay bastante brillo y glitter; en las tres
flores, que son de Prima, hay glitter-glue, así 
como también en las tres flechas de madera.

Así con mi día con las famosas Amy
Tangerine y Loredana Bucaria - no
muy representativo de mi vida pero 
si muy significativo!

Criss-cross kort

Hej! Idag visar jag ett criss-cross kort jag 
gjorde för Scrapparazzis räkning för ett tag
sedan. Jag har klätt kortet och en tag med 
söta papper i 6x6 från Scrapparazzi och
dekorerat helt simpelt med band och en 
blomma med silkespapper runt och lite
glitterlim på.  

Hola; esto es para ver si alguien que
habla castellano lee mi blog; hoy muestro
una tarjeta criss-cross que hice por cuenta
de Scrapparazzi. La decoración es sencilla.

I'd like to submit card to:

ABC Challenges: ABC48 (card for a child)
