:: More ATC´s - Black Boat ::

Time for some more ATC´s! This time it was super hard to take good photos? I think the originals are a bit more turquoise. This serie are called Black Boat. They are up for a swap if anyone is interested? Most of my ATC´s are ready for swaps.

I used papers from 13arts. I also used my Faber Castell Pitt Pens and a black pen.

I used lots of glitter and small glass beads. The wise words are from Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text.

:: Prima BAP July Challenge ::

Here is my take after Primas BAP July sketch. I was inspired by the stripes on the sketch. I devided up the large star and ended up with falling stars instead! I used a stitch stamp from Prima to get some horizontal and vertical lines.

This is the sletch.

 To strengthen the look with the stitches I also used one around my photo.

 I used a whole bunch of flowers from Prima as Corine flowers, Bel Canto in yellow, one large yellow flower from Lady Bird collection, Joulee Tropics flowers. I also wanted some red flowers and used Rudolph´s Nose from A Victorian X-mas.
The black cool thingies are called Velvet Trinkets.

 I made my title with Rub-ons from Prima called Loved words. To get the gold effect I used Prima Foils Golden Girl. My Rhinestone stars are called Say it in Cruystals Bedtime Story. The stamps I used are called Cling Stamps Circle Stitches and Lines. I also used Art Basics Heavy Gesso white.

:: Card for Prima Card Challenge July ::

Prima has a new kind of challenge every month called Cards & Tags and I made a card for the challenge. 

This is the sketch. My squared tag is the four squares from the sketch. As you can see I didn´t follow the sketch manic but I was very inspired by it!

 I fussy cutted the Fairy from a paper called Charlotte from the Princess Collection. I also used the same paper for my background. For some nice sparkle effect I used Prima Glass Glitter in Gold.

 When I take on Primas challenges I always try to use as near as possible 100% Prima products. This time I made that 100%! The Flowers I used are called Prima Painterly Petals Hydrangeas. On that flowers I used Say it in chrystals Time Travellers. The cute flowers with six petals are called Cafe Mocha from the Coffee Breal collection. The Roses are from the collection Bedtime Story and are called Jessa. The white flowers are really old ones and they are called Craftable Flowers.
I used a dies from Prima called Leaves and Doily. The wood sentiments are also from Prima.

:: Layout for some amazing challenges ::

I attend following challenges with this layout:

13arts challeneg 44 - Dare to be daring. You find the fun challenge here!
I have had a bit of a slow period when it comes to create layouts. So at the moment it feels like I need to collect all my courage to even dare to make a layout! Maybe this challenge was a bit of a kick in the but to make them again! You find information about all the products from 13arts I used for my layout under the photos. 

More than words July - The word Smile combine with a sketch. You find the challenge  here!
I used this stunning sketch to find my mojo again. You find the word SMILE in my title and the photos of my son makes me smile also!

Here are my layout! I really like it! For my background I used papers from 13arts. I used a collection called Mental vacation and the papers are Forever Skies and Life´s a beach. I made a lot of squares and added to my background paper.

 I used flowers from Prima. They are Corine Flowers and Roses from Salvage District collection and French Riviera collection.

 Around my squares I used Pit Pens from Faber Castell. Then I added tons of textures like glitter and glass beads from 13arts. My sentiment piece I painted with black Gesso from 13arts and water. I added water to make the Gesso thin so I could see the letters throw the Gesso.

 Here is a close up on some of the textures. You can find black Natural Mika flakes, blue hexagon hologram glitter, Micro glass beads all from 13 arts. When I add all of it I used 13arts Acrylic Gel Medium. I really like it!

 I also added Mist from 13arts called Chalk Turquoise.

 The cute embellishment is from Prima and called Crochet Icons.

  In my stash I found some really old chipboards from Tattered Angels. I gave them a coat of black paint from 13arts.

:: I still got my flower cluster mojo going ::

It was some time ago I made a card with lots of flowers on it! The other day I needed to try if I still had it in me. And yes I did! I just love to make flower clusters and pick just the right flowers.

I used a digi stamp from Mo Manning called Jenny texting. I colored her with my Copics.

The brown frame is a die from My Favorite Things.

Sparkly and sweet flowers! The flowers are from Papirdesign and Wild Orchid Flowers.

The fun pink and sparkly balls are a bargain from Plantagen. I bought them a couple of years ago right after christmas.

The pink paper with white hearts is from Lawn Fawn and I bought it at Pyssloteket.

:: Deep Sea ATC ::

I continue to play with ATC! Have you tried it? If not do so! It´s really fun! The tricky part for me is to not do them with lots of 3d embellishments as flowers. I know you can use some but so far I have only made mine quite flat. Soon I will try to create some romantic ATC with flowers and other nice stuff! I have actually a layout on my table right now so in a near future I finally will have a layout to show you! Yay! I´m also attend the challenge at ArJo´s Tag and ATC challenge with my ATC´s.

When I made this ATC collection I started in a bit different way. Before I first cut my 3,5 x 2,5 pieces and made the the backgrounds. This time I made all backgrounds at once! Really fun and a nice way to save time. You can see all the sprays, Acrylic Inks and Stamp Pads I used. For my background I used stamps from Darkroom door called Weathered stripes and some from a Dylusions set called Background love. 

 When my background was finished I cut the 12x12 sheet to my ATC. I made six of them but I have already swapped one. 

 The fish is a stamp from TGR and I just love it! I fuzzy cutted them after stamping with a stamp pad from Archival Ink. The word LOVE is from a stamp kit called Love Story from Blue Fern Studios. The large circles are from Prima and the air bubbles in front of my fishies are hand doodled.

 Love and giggles and the flowers come from a Prima stamp set called Rondelle. Last I added some Stickles Star Dust for some nice effects!

:: Wisdom comes with age - ATC ::

I just love to try new things when it comes to be creative! I haven´t done many ATC cards but I really love it! Today I have a very cute and very wise owl on my ATC cards. I made five of them but I, by accident, added too much Wink of Stella on one of the Owl faces! Oops!

 I made my background by using different sprays from 13arts and stamped with my Archival Inks.
Lots of layers! I also added letters in white by using a stamp from Prima and a Pigment Ink Pad from Hero Arts. It works really well on darker colors! The other stamps I used come from Prima and Ranger Dylusions. The kit from Ranger is called Background love.

 My cute Owl is from a store called TGR. I bought it a year ago. I colored the Owl with my Faber-Castell Big Brush Pit Pens. I added a lot of white dots with my white Sharpie pen.

 At the corners I added some micro beads and black Stickles.

 I did a bad choice by adding the Wink of Stella glitter on the Owl. All the black lines went blurry so I doodled them with a black pen from Faber-Castell.
My words I simply printed with my computer.

:: Trevlig Midsommar ::

Today we celebrate Midsommar in Sweden! We spend the first half of this day with a gruop of friends and the rest of the day with my family. I will bring a gift and this cute card for the host and hostess. A reallt sunny and fun card!

I used the Grass Border and Spring Showers dies from Lawn Fawn. The sun and one cloud got 3d pillows to create some depth in my card. The ant stamp is called Happy Summer and are also from Lawn Fawn. I think the ants are way too cute when they carrying the letters from Jillibeansoup!
Hope you like it :) Glad Midsommar!

:: More cards with Lawn Fawn ::

I just love all the cute things from Lawn Fawn! I think it´s good to try new styles when it comes to Scrapbooking. After almost manic working with paper for the last ten years I hit the wall! Hard! I still love my flowers and 3d effects but for now it feels so easy to work with this style!

 Today I have a card with totally cute elephants! 
Lately I have bought some stuff from Lawn Fawn and I think it´s time to learn how I like to use them!  

 The elephant stamp and dies are called Love you tons. The grass is also a die from Lawn Fawn and is called Grassy Border. I buy my dies and stamp at Pyssloteket. They have a huge range of Lawn Fawn! Fun, but dangerous for my wallet!

 I used Faded Jeans Distress pad for my background and then I added the clouds and the sun. The dies are called Spring Showers. I stamped Hello with a stamp from the stamp kit called A birdie told me.
The kites are from a die kit called Stitched Kite. I added 3d pillows behind the kites for more dimension effect.
