Binding a journal

The other day I was asked to show how I make my journals, and how to make the Coptic stitches. And I made a small tutorial, the quality isn’t the best.. I’m trying hard to find the right settings during the editing and uploading to find the best quality.

enjoy!

My Girl!

It´s been a while since I did some proper scrapping. The summer with kids at home from school, and loads of activities, has not given enough time to sit down and enjoy the process.

But yesterday I had the entire evening by myself, and I actually did loads of creating. And one of the things was this LO.

Today its beautiful weather.. so I´m going for the sun… enjoying a day at the poolside.

Have fun!

An interesting day…

Today has been the mental meltdown day in my house… and I made the black belt in Meltdowns….

Well let me put it like this…. I expect flowers chocolate a good wine and a beautiful neclace and a candle light dinner tomorrow….  No I dont expect this after every nuclear meltdown in this household… just tomorrow…

Why? Bec me and my husband Celebrate 11 yrs as married tomorrow.. and 15 as a couple….

well… to get back on track.. after the meltdown I thought of a saying I read somewhere on the web a couple of days ago… “If you are feeling blue.. try paint yourself in another color”

Love paint… a colleague of mine suggested bodypaint… naaah not my style… (getting on the wrong track again)…
Well.. I started painting.. and let me tell you that kind of painting was some time since the last time… I actually painted stamped Images.
There was a Time when I did it all the time… Thats how I ended up with scrapbooking. it feels like about a million years ago.. but I actually started my DT career as an International Designer for the Magnolia Rubberstamps.
bla bla bla.. Will she ever get to the point??……
Well I took out some colourpencils and started painting.. and I actually taped the entire process… and YES!!! I did a Video Tutorial about it..
The thought was to make something for my digital training programme we are having at work.. but as with alot today.. I sort of sidestepped myself and ended up with something else than I had in mind when I started…
so…
you want to check it out?
sorry about the audio.. Im not that great at talking in my videos yet….

Ive used the Carta Bella from The Aug kit from My scrapbook Nook for the card shown at the end of the video…

I gave it my best… but it wasnt my time …

Tattered Angels DT calls to the new team went out yesterday.. and well I didnt become one of the lucky gals getting a call.. Well, there is always next year…

Since the call is set.. Im showing my art that Ive sent in for the call…

I started working on my app a long time ago.. and the first piece I did was an altered handbag.. and yes! I did it all.. I sew, painted and stamped this bag from the first stitch.

my second piece was a tag:

and the third piece was a LO, using lots of mists and gesso…

I even made a video from the making of the LO, if you want to check it out you can.. Ive made it open for public now :)

Echo Park- Freshface

Have you seen that Echo Park is having a fresh face call?? Well it sounded fun, so I thought why not give it a try? :)

so here is my  pieces for the Call:

My latest Card, and my only christmas card so far…

I used the Dots and stripes christmas line for this one…..and if you missed the video about the making of the card… you can find it here

The other piece Im going to show you is this one…

A LO with my dear friends puppy Leia, isnt she cute? This page have been published in the swedish scrap mag Inzpira and I can finally show it to you!!  :)

This cute cake is really easy to do using a template i found  over at splitcoaststampers :)

i had an Idea of making a whole cake for my daughter 6yrs birthday party and each slice would be filled with a few pieces of candy and other stuff aproriate for little ladies but the time just ran away  :s

I also made a small birthdaycard, made with the same paperline-For the record, the stamp is from the Swedish brand Magnolia and is coloured with aquarelles.

Well the Echo Park For the record Paperlines was the April kit from My scrap book Nook.. and  the Dots and stripes christmas collection I got as a gift from my sweet friend Leah that is the DT coordinator at My scrapbook Nook.

Thanks for the visit!
