I’m trying to use up my stash before the new collections hits the store! And I’m having so much fun! I have a lot of things that I had forgotten about. Things I actually can and want to use.
The easiest way of using up stash is (I think) to choose decorations in the same colors. For this layout I collected all blue and green I could find. Both from new collections and very old ones. The decorations doesn’t really match each other… a cactus and flowers and stars? But the colors work together!
Hope you like my layout!
Have you ever tried to do a page in an other size than 12*12?
One popular format is 8,5*11. And I have tried it a few times before… but I think it is a bit small. Not enough room for embellishments… 😀
This week I had two extra photos that I didn’t want to make a 12*12 page with… I didn’t feel I had a story to go with the photos, I just wanted them to stand out a bit from the PL-pages. So I decided to try 8,5*11 again. And it was fun! Much quicker!!!!!
The first page is a mix of a lot of different collections. I really love to work like this… mix and match! I only have one real summer collection… and I haven’t used much of it. We don’t really have summer in Sweden. 😛
The second layout is with the popular flamingo! It’s a very pretty bird… and it’s pink… just like my girl! I matched the flamingos with a pink swan, just to make the pink more important than the sort of bird. We don’t have any wild flamingos here… and I have no photos of any! But you can make it work anyway! 😀 That’s it from me today! Hope you liked my layouts! And I hope you try this smaller format too!
New layout! 😀
Actually, I have a couple of new layouts… but I will post them here one at a time! 😀
This layout is made with both new and old things. The title is from WRMK – Wildflower… I have only one word left of those word thickers. My all time favorite product! As I have said before… I’m trying to use up my stash (and not buy anything at all). I have a lot of pretty papers in my stash and I can always find a paper I want to use. But embellishments are a bit more tricky… I find it easy to use flowers, so I have almost no flowers left now…
The green washi and the roller stamp from Maggie Holmes are two of my favorites right now. I use them on a lot of layouts and PL-pages.
What products are your favorites right now?
I bought as much as I could from the baby collection from Crate Paper… but I couldn’t use everything from it… until now! And I’m so happy I saved some of it!!!! It is soooo lovely for all the baby photos!
The photo for this layout is taken just minutes after my youngest daughter was born. I just love the first look she gave me! I made the photo a bit larger than my usual photos… ‘cos it’s so special. And I didn’t want too many papers or embellishments around it. But I had some things I really felt like I wanted to use… like “the day you were born”-embellishment.
I mixed Crate Paper with some things from Shimelle and some Maggie Holmes.
That’s all from me today!
You have probably already heard… I’m no longer part of any design teams. So sad! I really liked being part of a team. But… another team might find me soon! 😀
Sooo, I’m currently between design teams and I have a new baby! Do I scrap? Oh yes I do!
I have many new beautiful photos and a lot of old stash. I’m trying not to spend any money on products (until new collections comes along). And I really love to use up some old things (things I really love… but haven’t used yet). Lets take a look at one of my latest layouts…
For this layout I used a lot of the ephemera from the latest collection from Maggie Holmes. But also some bits from older collections. The background is made with just bits and pieces glued together…. like a patchwork.
… and the photo is my favorite one! So cute!
That’s all from me today! Hope you liked my layout!
We had a very long winter here in Sweden (as usual). So I still have winter photos to scrap. The winter collection from Crate Paper is still on my table and I love it!
For this page I mixed it up with some old PL-cards and old papers. I really like the cold blue together with the pink! And all things pink works perfectly together with everything my daughter owns (she loves pink… only pink!).
Have a really nice day!
I’m finally done with all the Christmas photos! And all photos from 2016. I started my new album before Christmas. The last one was so full that I couldn’t fit any more pages in there. But… I don’t really mind! Hope I can make 2017 in only two albums. Then I’m going to try a different size I think… smaller albums! 😀
The best winter collection 2016 was the Snow & Cocoa from Crate Paper. I have almost nothing left of it now. A few papers and some decorations. I love to use up my stash! Feels so good to not just save things for later! Later never comes! 🙂
I mixed the Crate Paper collection with MME and some other bits and bobs.
For this layout I used a paper from American Crafts DIY Shop 4. I really love these kinds of papers. So versatile and great to have as background. I also used some papers from the collection All Wrapped Up. I think I ended up buying 3 different Christmas collections this year. I can never just pick one! 😀
Hope you like my layouts!
