Hello Gorgeous - Layout - Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo

Hello my sweet neglected followers! This past few months have been soo crazy busy. I've been the leader of this huge festival in my community with loads of people selling their homemade items, and all sorts of other things. It's been a crazy time but hopefully I'm back to my old self with scrapbooking, teaching classes and taking photos! :) 

So for my first share of many (hopefully) is my DT layout for Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo's newest challenge "Beauty". It's not to late to join in and I hope you do! :) 


Like I said; this month is all about "Beauty" and I found this fun Snapchat photo of me and Olivia. Heather Thompson's sweet sweet daughter from when they visited me here in Norway this summer. She is such a dollface! :)


It's been a long time since I've made scrapbook layouts. I've mostly made cards and other of the page projects. So I wanted to keep this layout clean and fun. I've used white cardstock for my base and distress inks from Tim Holtz for my blue background with some yellow splashes with Dylusions ink. I stamped with a star background stamp from Carabelle. and used mostly Prima products as embellishments. 
The "Hello Gorgeous" sticker is from Simple Stories, and most of the flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchids, added some bits of lace and ribbon and - Voila! A little layout was born!

If you'd like to join Scrapki's challenge this month, please head on over to the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo blog for details and a little look at this months prizes sponsored by 7dots Studio and UmWow Studio.

Thank you so much for stopping by my neglected blog today! I truly appricate it! :) HUGS!

You and Me - Bingo! Layout - DT Scrapberry's

Hello Everyone! It's tutorail day over at the Scrapberry's international blog and I'm on the video team and of course I have a video for you today! In my last video post for Scrapberry's I played around with the Stain's Ink pads (you can find my post here) and I wanted to play some more with them, so I made a layout and a watercolor background playing with the Stain's Inks.


The pads has a beautiful vibrant color. The stickers on the pads "lies" a bit so I do recommend trying them out on a scrap piece of paper before applying to the project.

I have to say I really love the effect the pads had on my page, the flowed just as I wanted and made this flowy effect. I stamed a bit and splashed aswell to finish the background work. The papers added are from Scrapberry's "You and Me" collection on I also stamped with a prima flower stamp. Would you like to see how I made this layout please check out the video below.



I had so much fun making this page adding all the little details.. 

I added these beautiful metal trinkes from Scrapberry's - the clock face and the together metal embellishement witch was kinda perfect for my page. 

The triangles are chipboards from Creative Embellishements. Those I really love. The Flair button are from Scrapberry's "Happily ever after" Collecction and was just the perfect color and sentiment. 

I'll be joining these challenges with my layout: 

Thanks for joining me today. For more inspiration with Scrapberry's products please head on over to their blog. Have a fantastic day everyone. ~ Yasmin

Vintage Cards - DT Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello lovelies, it's my turn over at the Wild Orchid blog and I have two vintage cards to share with you.
The first card has more details and the other, I used loads of the Open Roses, Wild Roses and the Pretty Flori flowers. The papers are from Scrapberry's.

The beautiful resin bird is from Prima and was a perfect sentiment to my card. This card is actually a card without media. Shocking isn't it? hahaha :)


I used an old bookpage from a book that's from 1878.. I know.. really old, but this book is in such bad shape, so I think it's better to give it a new use in my scrapbooking.. Ok.. Over to my second card..

This card is a smaller card using the same type of paper as the first one, from Scrapberry's. I embellished with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some rhinestones.


I'm joining in these challenges with first my card:



Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today! I'd love to hear what you think.

Altered Tin and Spool Stand

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is good, it's soon Easter holiday's here in Norway and I hope that you are going to enjoy yourself alot this Easter. Of course I have a little share today. I made an Altered Tin and Spool stand I'm really excited about.

I got my mixed media on while making this little stand. I added so many Wild Orchid Flowers on this and loads of mixed media products like Crackle paste, sprays and Finnabairs waxes.

I put this together by using a wooden spool and a small fish tin on top of it and covered it with crackle paint, mists and art Alchemy Waxes. I decorated it with loads of Wild Orchid flowers, Prima resin decor and  little 7dots Studio Sticker. Do you recongnize the little girl? Well.. It's me! I started dancing ballroom dancing when I was about 4 years old.. my carrier ended in the age of 9 I think.. don't really know why.. :) I wish I still danced though.. I really liked it I remember.

l also added loads of micro beads and glitter to my project, long with strings and flowers. 


I'm joining in these challenges with my little project:

Spring Basket - DT Scrapberry's & Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello Everyone! Today I have a little altered thing to show you. I'm combined two of my designteams bringing in the gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid and the stunning papers from Scrapberry's into the mix. I made a little Spring/Easter Basket I would love to show you.


I have to say I really love the daffodil flowers from Wild Ochid Crafts. They are so gorgeous and perfect for any spring projects.

I made the basket out of an empty nut container. I painted it first with gesso and crackle paint. I glued papers from the Juliet Collection from Scrapberry's and added that to the box.

I made a wreath out of branches to place on top of my basket and decorated with a lot of flowers from Wild Orchid and fuzzy cut some butterflies out of the Juliet Collection from Scrapberry's.

The little bird is an embellishement from Scrapberry's and it was perfect from my little basket. The pinecones are real pinecones we find outside in some of my trees.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and if you want to see more projects with Wild Orchid Crafts products or Scrapberry's products, please visit their blogs. :)

Have a great Creative Day! - Yasmin

Hello Everyone! Today I have a little canvas piece to share with you. I made this of my littlest boy, just for fun.. It's not often I make something just for fun since I usually make a lot of DT work, but this time I also added a video tutorial of my piece.

I played with some of awesome Prima Flowers, Blue Fern Studio Chipboards and used a lot of mixed media products like the new Lindy's Magical Shakers.

There's a lot of details on it, I used modeling paste in the background, with the magical shakers and Color Blooms. I also did some stamping and golden embossingpowder.

If you would like to see how I made this please take a look at the video below. :)

I colored seam binding ribbon and Wild Orchid Magnolia flowers to get the right color. If you would like to see how I made this layout, please take a look at the video below.

H is for Hummingbird - 52 Card Challenge

Hello everyone.. So Maremi - Marta Lapkowska has this great Creative Cafe on facebook where you can share your love for all things Art, and she started this great challenge where you alter a playing card making this super sweet ATC like treasures. So I wanted to join in because it's a great to explore and expand your own creative boundries. Anyways.. I starting at the end of the line, not with the first card with the letter A, but with letter H... And H is for Hummingbirds..


So as an additonal twist I thought.. why don't I do a video tutorial of every card I make? Hopefully I will make all 52 cards.. that means 52 videos.. Here's my card:

The card is made out of Prima's Alphabet Cards and is the same size as playing cards. I've used a image transfer technique to transfer the bird witch I found on pintrest. I can't draw if my life depended on it.. and used watercolors to color the bird.. You can watch the whole proccess in the video below.


I will have to play "catch up" to get caught up from A-G so hopefully there will be some more videos in the next weeks or soo.. could be months too... let's not rule anything out.. 

So there you have it, my first card for the challenge. :) Hope you liked my tutorial and thank you for visiting my blog today! Have a great creative day!

Special - Layout - DT Scrapberry's

Hello my lovelies! Yesterday it was my turn over at the Scrapberry's blog. I made a layout this time I would like to share with you:


I used the "Words Live Forever" collection from Scrapberry's and some bits and pieces from the "Primavera" collection. I aslo added some old bookpages and doilies.

I started my page with embossing some starts with a stamp from Northstar Stamps. I used white ink to add the script with another background stamp, but this one is from Prima. I splattered some white dylusions ink and some glimmer glam "Rockin on Sunshine" to add some more interest.


I ended up not using any flowers on this, just paper embellishment, rhinestones and resins. All from Scrapberry's. Do you spot the super cute flair button?

The resin are from an older Scrapberry's collection, but you could still get them. It's from the "Vintage Circus" collection. I think the carousell was cute as my little Finnley is sleeping in my lap.

Sisters - Layout - DT Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello everyone! Back today with another share, today I'm up on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog with a layout to share. I had so much fun making this layout. Let me tell you all about it!

These are my sisters, way back when I was young.. hahaha.. Well.. The picture is about 15-16years old I guess and just a fun memory to scrapbook, because that's what it's all about isn't it? So I made this layout at a crop, this was a challenge and you had to finish in one hour. I used about 45minutes to come up with the idea and making it happen.

The challenge was to use purple, you had to borrow something from your neighbour and use some embossing dry or wet. So I did a bit of mixed media on the background like adding modeling paste, mists and some stamping and of course embossing. You don't know how rushed you feel when you are trying to dry mist and wet medium and making a decent layout at the same time. All in one hour.


I used some of the white open roses and some Pretty Flori - Anemone flowers from Wild Orchid and adding a soda can opener just for fun. I also borrowed some of the punchinella from my neighbor Kjersti at the crop and stapled them on.


I added some large magnolias, anemone and roses to my project, of course from Wild Orchid. The flowers are really good quality flowers and perfect for any project.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Would love to hear what you think. Have a great creative day! :)
