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!
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!
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!
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!
Wow, I haven’t written anything here for a while now! So so so sorry!
I’ve been busy, and also ill. But I have been scrapping a lot. I’ve done some project life, some layouts and some other projects. I can share them here later!
The best Christmas collection for 2016, wasn’t so Christmassy… more Winter. But it came from Crate Paper and I bought it all and used almost everything. Think I have 2 or 3 papers left. It’s such a nice feeling when you find a collection that really suits your life and photos. I only wish I had more! 😀
So here is one PL-page from my album. There is a layout that goes with this page… but that one is not done yet!
That bear! Love it! Sooo cute!
That’s it from me for this time! A short little post!
I like to use 6*6 paper pads for my project life spreads. But when you do that you end up with a lot of strips papers…
By now, I have a lot of scraps in my stash and I don’t want more. So I decided to use up all scraps right away… and ended up with this layout!
This layout came together very easy. I just took my strips of papers and placed it on a beautiful pink paper. Then I added a few embellishments and a title. I just love to work with collections from Maggie Holmes. They always fit my photos and my stories! Love love love! Hope she releases another collection soon… I’m starting to run out of stash! 😀
Hope you like this layout!
