Hugs & Kisses - Card DT Scrapberry's

Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to show you my second DT project for Scrapberry's this month and this time I've made a card.

I've made a card with the beautiful "Holiday Romance" collection. I've diecuted the woman out the same sheet of paper I used on my last DT project. Nothing goes to waste! :)

I've decorated with  loads of flowers, chipboard and a beautiful butterfly resin from Scrapberry's. I've also used facet cut gems also from Scrapberry's. "Hugs and Kisses" are from the Afternoon tea line also from Scrapberry's.

The flowers are from different companies and chipboards are Blue Fern Studio. 

I'm entering these challenges with my card:

Thank you so much for joining me today! :) Have a creative day!

Adorable Layout - DT Scrapberry's

It's my turn today over at the Scrapberry's blog and I have a layout to share. Sometimes making a project just sits deep inside you and it takes so inspiration to get it out if you know what I mean. This was one of those layouts. BUT I got some goood mail today and then the layout just came to..

I wanted to keep it soft and innocent. I think I accomplished what I set out for. This is our youngst son, Finnley. He was born 7 weeks premature and needed some help in the start. We where in the hospital for a month. I didn't have the strength to take that many photos. So these are precious to me.

I've used the "Holiday Romance" Collection from Scrapberry's. This piece of paper actually has a lovely lady in the bottom right corner, but I had two sheets of this paper, cut it down to size and coverd her up. Then I got a blank canvas to work on. I have some left over scrap pieces of paper behind the photo from the same collection. I used modeling paste and stencil in the background but it's hard to see I'm afraid.

I've used different embellishments from Scrapberry's and Prima. The clock and the little house with the heart (not so easy to see) is Scrapberry's. Same with the resin flowers, leaf witch is see throw, but there and the little flowers here flowing out under the leaf. The resin flower are prima. You can see some of the modeling paste in the up left corner. I also misted the flower with soft teal colorbloom and added loads of micro beads here and there and a bit of stamping :)

I'm joining in different challenges with my layout today.:

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fantastic day.

Enjoy Life Tag - DT Korthobby

Loads of challenges out this month and's challenge blog has just posted their newest challenge. The challenge is "anything goes" and here is my project for it:

I've made a tag this time with some products from The Cameo embellishment and the Silver crown is something you can find in the store. 

I've used papers form Authentique and Poppydesign Card. I've also used flowers form prima, petaloo and storyteller and of course loads of medium. 

So this is my project :) 
For my norwegian readers: Da er det bare å ta turen innom korthobby's utfordringsblogg å bli med. Eneste kriterie er at det er nødt til å være metall fra korthobby på prosjektet. Easy peasy. :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a creative evening! :)

Celebrate Card - DT Marion Smith Designs

My turn over at the Marion Smith Designs blog and I have a card to share today.. well, it actually started out as a tag, but since I never can stay inside the "lines" I just converted it into a card. 

I've used a bit from different collections on my card. Mainly I've used the "Junque Gypsey" collection, but you can also find some from the "Romance Novel 2" collection. :

I actually loved the way this turned out. I fuzzy cut a couple of pieces on this and added a little junque and gem ballon. Super cute! The flowers are from Prima and I added a some gold glass glitter from Melissa Frances. They make any project stunning. 

I'm joining in these challenges with my card:

Moments - Challenge at Scrapberry's

Scrapberry's has their very first challenge up on their international blog! We have a very lovely moodboard going on for our August theme and I hope you will join us.

I've used papers from the Antique Shop collection and Holiday Romance Collection. Both from Scrapberry's.

This is my take on this moodboard: 

I've used real shells that I found by the seaside just a couple of minutes from my house. This is me and my dog when we where in Ålesund a couple of years ago. The flowers are Prima and LemonCraft. I've used alot of medium, like modeling paste with a 3rd Eye stencil and colorlab colors like Corvette and Tea Stain. :)

So that was my project for the very first challenge! I hope you'll come and join us! :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you have the most amazing creative day! :)

August 2015 is a celebratory month for me.. I've actually scrapbooked for 10 years this month! It's brought me so much joy to be able to preserve my memories and share in the joy of doing something creative.

I still have my very first scrapbook page. I know some people when their skill progresses, rip the picture of the page and scrapbook the picture again. I haven't done that. I've just kept them.. So want to see my first page?! LOL's Here it comes:

I've gained so many lovely friends from all over the world. My little world here in Norway has been so much bigger with scrapbooking. It's really not a hobby. It's my lifestyle and I love it!! :)

Focus - New Challenge - Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo!

It's a new month and a new challenge over at the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo blog! This time it's all about typesetting. Using letteres to create wonderful projects.

I found this challenge awesome! There is som many things you can do with alphabets and letteres to create interesting backgrounds.

This is my take on this challenge: 

I've used papers from different collections from 7dots Studio. The background papers are from the "Nature Walk" collection. I've used scraps from the "Unknown Destination" Collection and "Soulmates". I've also used alphabet stickers from different collections. 

I've stamped the background with the "Cold Country" stamps. And I've used an old letter/alpha diecut to make my typeset background. I've used sizzix dies to make the frame. 

Let's take a look at this months prizes! :)
