There are a few fun creative things going on behind the scenes… and today I have been scrapping some great papers from Color Conspiracy and some oldies but goodies from Jillibean Soup.

There is rarely any photos of me and my husband together… wonder why? there are tons of pics of our children and about three of me and my husband on the same photo.. and one of those are our wedding portrait. I think I need to get some of my scrappy photographing skilled friends to help me out with a photo-session of the entire family this summer…


Materials used:

Patterned Paper- Jillibean Soup

Patterned papers- Color Conspiracy

Mists: Tattered Angel

Ink-Tim Holtz

Die cuts- Silhouette

Flowers- Wild orchid crafts

Flair-Cre8tive Cre8tions

Stencils- Prima


Have a great day!


Thank you so much!!!

Thank you all that voted for my contribution in round 3 of the European Scrapbattle.

I feel very blessed to be in this game for the fourth round..  Tomorrow I will get the rules for round #4, and I know I will be battling against KarinZ

my sweet friend from my time as a DT at Magdas Scrapbooking.  She will be a tough competition… so if I loose the next round I will be fine.. since I know she is an awesome artist.

This was my contribution in round #3


I was inspired to make my LO a bit like Finnabair, with loads of gesso and colour.



Nook Jan kit + WOW embossing= Love

Its really easy to work witht eh Jan kit from My Scrapbook Nook, its jammed with lovely papers from Lilybee- Head over heels collection, and its almost scrapping itself.

the other day I took out the kit, and matched it with my DT box from WOW embossing, and I had so much fun embossing butterflies, chipboard and diecuts,

.:A happy New Year to all my friends:.

The year 2011 is almost over! and its time to think about what have been, and what to come in the future.

As most of the scrappers around the world I have made a list out of the top 10 favourites Ive made this year and I wanted to share my top 10 favourites with you!
















I wish you all a Happy New Year, and I look forward to what 2012 might bring!



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 🙂

Didnt make the Hambly team this year… better luck next time right?

well.. since I didnt make the team… Im going to show a LO I did for the call… I had so much fun playing with the rubons, papers and washi tapes from their product lines.

The background is made by using Tattered Angels mist, acrylic paint and Maple leaves. made a cool effect painting on the leaves and used them as stamps on my page 🙂 Ive also used the vintage settings and Felt flowers from Epiphany Crafts. love those products too 🙂 so versatile 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
