Challenges at Hey Little Magpie


This weekend the design team of Hey Little Magpie did some challenges for everyone interested. They can be found in this facebook group:Β Hey Little Magpie Chat & Inspiration

My challenge is about gift wrapping. Wrap a gift or box and make a tag, use a tassel and/or a bow. Easy right! Here is my example:

I tried one of the other challenges too… a pin board inspiration challenge. Here is my layout for it:

I used a lot of the new Maggie Holmes – Gather! Love it so so so much! Need to buy some more of it. The papers are the prettiest I have ever seen! Already used up most of them! Like always when it comes to collection from Maggie!

Have a lovely Sunday!


Two PL-pages


It’s been a while since I shared any of my PL pages. I think it’s so difficult to take good photos of a spread. There is always some blurriness… but today I don’t care. So here are two of my latest pages. They have matching layouts that I will share later.

As always… there is a lot of Crate Paper and Maggie Holmes on these pages! Some old and some new!

On this page I attached the fringed heart on top of the photo sleeve. To add some dimension and texture!

Hope you liked my pages!


Cut file


For this layout I wanted to use some scraps from Maggie Holmes Bloom and also the 6*6 paper pad. I decided that I wanted to try to make a cut file background. My first!

It turned out great! πŸ˜€

The butterflies are from a paper. My favorite one from Maggie Holmes Bloom. I really love to be able to make my own embellishments from a paper. All collection should have a paper like that! And a woodgrain! πŸ˜€

I also wanted to use up some thickers and made a very long title. It’s called “I-pad & headphones & everything pink!”! My daughter is in a pink phase right now… πŸ˜€
Gold, pink and dark woodgrain… could it be any better? I really love this combination!

And Maggie Holmes got a new collection! I love it already! πŸ˜€

That’s it from me this time! Hope you feel inspired!


Mix and match collections


It’s been a while since I wrote here! But no worries… I’m back!

First out is this layout. I really really like this one. I love the contrast between the dark wood and the pink. And I also really love to mix collections. It’s so fun to dig in all the boxes and just use things up! So the mix is mostly Crate Paper – Little you and Maggie Holmes… but there is also some Jen Hadfield, Shimelle and the flair is from somewhere unknown (Studio Calico?)!

This autumn will be great for my stash… two collections from Crate Paper and one from Maggie Holmes… and all the Christmas collections!!! Oh my!

See you soon!


Layout with matching PL page


I really really like the band Suede! I was in love with Brett Anderson when I was a teenager. And as you know… you never forget your first crush!

So… this summer… when they came to Stockholm… I was there!

I saw Suede for the first time this summer! It’s been almost 20 years since I bought my first Suede CD. Crazy! The concert was worth the wait and the night was magic! Loved every single second of it and came sooo close to my dear Brett!

And I made a layout and a PL page about the concert. Not much text at all… just the setlist. I need to go back and write everything about it. I often match layouts with pocket pages. It’s perfect when you have a lot of photos. Sometimes I even use the same photos on the layout and in the pockets. That’s because I think of layouts more like a pretty thing and the pocket pages as a memory.

For this layout I wanted to do something simple and cool. I digged out things from almost all my boxes. This is a mix of several brands and collections. Love to work like that!

My little dino


I made a new layout! πŸ˜€

These are my favorite photos of Stella as a baby. I recently made them slightly better with Lightroom. So I made a new layout with old photos! I might go back to other photos too. This is my third layout with old photos…

I wanted to use up some of my stash and decided to mix and match old Crate Paper lines and some Maggie Holmes. The title is from my absolute favorite thickers pack from WRMK. I have only two words left (dream and adventure) and I will use them too some day!

The card with the rabbit on is from the collection Wonder and the cat is from the newer Little you. Perfect match! And I totally love woodgrain! This dark wood is from Simple Stories. Love it and it matches the brown on my daughters dino hoodie!

Some gold dots and some stitches and the layout was complete!
