Have you ever bought a paper that you just keep using… every single little scrap of it?
I have… and I used the last pieces on this layout. It’s the black paper with white dots… and I have forgotten what brand and collection it is… guess I need to find a new favorite! 😀
This layout is very me. A background with two different papers, with different patterns. Some layers of papers behind the photo… and then decorations tucked under the layers. I found my old favorite gold dots again! Still have a lot of them left! I really love decorations that can be used the same way as enamel dots. Enamel dots are not as fun as they use to be… I need new things!
The title: “Sweet liten kanin” (translates to “Sweet little rabbit”). I like to mix English and Swedish for my titles.
That’s it! Hope you liked this one!
I really like to make patchwork backgrounds. Patchwork with pieces of paper. Like this layout. I started with a paper from Maggie Holmes Carousel. It’s allready divided in triangles, so I just added other triangles on top. I machine stitched around my paper pieces to add some interest.
I then decided I wanted to use those chipboard flowers to add some more pink to the page. Then I also added some tickets in hot pink as a diagonal pattern. That gave the page a pink diagonal with the photo and title in the center.
I’m allready thinking about making another layout with a triangle patchwork as background. I’m so very pleased with this one!
Phrase stickers in gold is perfect to add to a layout. I use those a lot!
Hope you liked this layout!
I’ve bought a lot of things from Carousel from Maggie Holmes. I love it! My absolute favorite decorations are the stars from the small embellishment set. I’ve used them up allready! 😀
I also just love that all collections from Maggie Holmes work perfectly together. So I’m still using bits and pieces from Chasing Dreams, Bloom and Gather.
Did you buy the rub-on pens from Maggie Holmes – Gather? I did… and I haven’t used them at all until now. And now I love them! One is with text and the other one is with small hearts. They are easy to use after some practice. And I like that they don’t look perfect… a bit messy. 😀
Hope you like this layout and order some Carousel! 😀
I’ve been home with my two kids and dog the whole summer! We have done nothing special at all… no cocktails on the beach in some tropical land… just lazy days in the garden! It has been lovely and relaxing…. but there are no scrapbook collections with “stay-at-home-the-whole-summer”-theme! 😀
What to do?
I really liked the new summer collection from Crate Paper, Oasis, and I had some left from an older one (not sure what it was called). So a matched all the tropical flowers and leaves with my photos of us hanging around in an ordinary Swedish garden! 😀
… and I also mixed and matched some older things. The clouds are from Amy Tangerine and the white leaves are made with my new favorite die. Monstera leaves are so beautiful and although they are tropical… I really really like them.
Today, my oldest started kindergarten again and summer is over! 😦
Time to use up all summer collections and start to look at what’s new for Autumn. I now I like Carousel from Maggie Holmes (already in my stash). But I have also ordered some from the Glitter Girl collection. And I’m also looking at Turn the page from Paige Taylor Evans. What collections are you looking at (or ordering)?
I just loooove this photo! It’s my husband playing with the camera while we were waiting for the c-section. He looked so funny in the hospital clothes! 😀
When I saw the photo I knew I wanted it big! I also knew I wanted to decorate the layout with more masculine colors (not just pink). And I also wanted to use decorations from baby collections. I gathered some green, blue and teal and placed it alongside the photo. Some stitching, stamping and gold paint… and it was done! I think it’s sometimes easier to work with a big photo, you don’t need as much papers and colors to make the page interesting!
Hope you liked this layout!
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!
I bought the new collection from Fancy Pants called Dream big! I just loved the clouds and the birds. I usually don’t like travel themed collections… because I don’t travel so much… Dream big seemed to be a bit more versatile than an ordinary travel collection… so I gave it a go!
The papers are stunning! I really love the combination of yellow and light blue. And pink of course… you always need some pink!
I scrapped one of my favorite photos this month. My youngest girl sleeping together with the most snuggliest guard dog!
The title and the birds are from some older Maggie Holmes collection. And the branches are made with my new die from Sizzix (love it!!!).
That’s it from me today! Hope you liked it!
