:: ATC cards - Love has no size ::

For a month ago I attended the best live crop in the world called Fristadsträffen. One of the challenges was to create a series of  at least five ATC cards. The theme shoud be Heart and brain. I´m not a used ATC crafter and this is my third attempt ever! 

I used two stamps from Darkroom door. The set with lots of cute birds is called Carved Birds vol 1. I put the small bird on the large birds head. Then I fussy cutted the image. I used a chipboard heart from Wycinanka. All the girls at the crop got a gift package with super cute chipboards from Wycinanka. I like the clean and simple feeling of my cards and the contrasts between my colors. I always keep one of my cards but I have some for trading ;)

:: CAS card with Hedgehugs ::

This is not my every day style in card making ;) but I love the style when other artists make them! I made this card for a challenge at the CC. 

I used a stamp set from Lawn Fawn that I bought from Pyssloteket some time ago. They are so cute! I colored the hedgehogs with my Copics. 
I die-cutted out a oval with a Spellbinders die and I also made a thin frame in red. 
On the white cardstock I used a embossing folder from WRMK that I also bought from Pyssloteket. I just love how it looks like a quilted fabric! On the edges I used my sewingmachine. I mounted the white cardstock on 3d pillows and got a nice 3d effect for my hedgehogs. Last I added three red enamel dots from Papirdesign.

:: Cherish ::

I still have projects to show you that I created duríng a CC here in Sweden.
This layout is by far my favorite among them all! I made this layout for a stamp challenge. You would use at least ten different stamps! My goal was to create in my usual style. I wanted the layout not to look like I used that many stamps but look like a patterned paper with textures.
I started out with a blank Kraft cardstock and played with different stamps and different stamp pads.

I wanted to use more colors than I usually do and some bright ones also. I love how it turned out!

Most of the flowers are from Prima but the dark blue ones are from Petaloo.

I left the chipboards from Blue Fern Studios with only dark brown chalk on the edges.

Lots of splashes and some stamps.

When you work with this technique I think it´s important that you also make splashes on the flowers and embellishments.

:: I´m one of a kind ::

I still have a few projects to show you from last weeks CC. This one was for a EGO challenge.
I´m one of a kind ;) and maybe it´s good that it is only one of me?!

I´m really happy for my photos I took at a studio last spring! I used Color Bloom spray over the papers behind my photo. I also sprayed the large tag behind my photo with the same colors. I distressed the edges and added Distress Ink.

All flowers and background paper are from Prima.

The beautiful chipboard sentiments is from my favorite chipboard manufacturer Ble Fern Studios! I painted it black and added Glossy Accent to get a nice shine. The Stencil is from The Crafters Workshop. I used Prima heavy gesso with the Stencil.

:: My sweet funny boy ::

A scrapbooking store called Engströms are hosting a Cybercrop here in Sweden. It ends tomorrow and I have created after some of the challenges. This is my first I will show you. This challenge was to use Stencils.

Viggo is a very funny boy and it´s not always easy to take photos of him! He rather do silly faces than look serious. He´s supercute what ever he does!

I used three different Stencils. Two frpm Prima and one from The Crafters Workshop.

I also used some Washi tape, plastic film strip from Tim Holtz and a roller stamp with film strip pattern. Letters from American Craft, metallic plate from Prima and some seaquins from Teresa Collins. I used spray from 13arts, Studio Calico and I also used Distress paint and Liquitex Acrylic Ink.

:: Guest Designer at Berry71Bleu ::

Last month I was the winner of Berry71Bleu challenge! I was invited to guest them in April and this is the layout I created after the beautiful moodboard.
As background I used a white cardstock. It´s so hard to make the white justice when you take the photos! Is it only me or is it really hard?

I used a stencil from Crafters Workshop and gesso for my background. I also added lots of Prima Color Bloom. I used Emerald, Lime Wedge, Gold Foil and Soft Teal. I also used Pastel Pink Ayeeda Mist from 13arts. I wanted a soft title and used rub-on and foil from Prima.

A mix of flowers from Prima and Papirdesign. The green flairs, if I remember it right, are from UmWowStudio.

I love to add caviar pearls on my work! They are meant for nails but perfect for scrapbooking and really resonable prices.

The moodboard inspired me with it´s feminine colors and features.

:: Layout for More than words challenge - April ::

This is my layout for the April challenge at More than words!

The challenge was:
Word inspiration - ESCAPE
Creative challenge - MOOD PHOTO

I didn´t use the actual word on my layout but I think the photos really speak the word - Finally have we escaped the winter and welcome the spring! But for me this also have a different meaning. Me hanging out with Viggo are the best escape from my daily pain! He always put a smile on my face!

 From the challenge Mood Photo I was inspired by all the flowers, the purple and pink colors. 

 My background paper is from Lemon Craft. I used a ton of different sprays from 13arts, Prima and also Acrylic Inks from Liquitex. 

 The flowers are from Papirdesign and Prima.

 Tags, stamps, and embellishments are also from Prima. The small lilac resin flowers are from Lemon Craft. 

 For extra textures I used cheese cloth, caviar pearls, rhinestones and sewing thread.

:: Baby belly bliss ::

Finally a new layout in my blog! My hubbie and I tried for twelve years before we finally got pregnant back in 2008! If you follow my blog you know that we got a perfect baby boy named Viggo. At More Than Words the challenge for March is to use the word BLISS. I think this photo of my gigantic belly and my hubbie is the perfect photo for the word bliss! The challenge was also to use GESSO. I used gesso with a stencil and also as a white wash and on the flowers.

I also was inspird by the Mood Board at Berry71Blue. The words about when things happens if you are patient fits so very well with my theme for my layout! I also was inspired by the pinks and the Butterfly!

Finally I also was inspired by Primas PPP for March! I have used almost 100% products from Prima. The only thing not from Prima is the bow. I just love the pink and green together!
PPP March 2016

And now some close ups!
I used flowers from Salvage District collection called Royal Court, Palais Royal, Trianon and the green Roses are called Grand Garden. My favorite Prima flowers are called Corine and the white flower are one of these.

The BLISS sign is from a package called Jean Plates. The stencil I used is called Crackles. The die from Prima is called Crochet Doily. I also used Soft matte gel and Micro beads crystal. I used some different stamps from Prima for some contrasts. Some sprinkle from a Color Bloom spray added more green.

Behind my flowers a cute resin frame peeking out. I also added a bow I tied with lace. 

The pink Rose are a older one called Winter Rose.
