:: 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.

:: CAS boy card ::

Viggo need some cards for Birthday parties he will attend during the spring and summer. For the girls it´s always much easier but I think a really clean card with a fun image works really well for boys!

Here I used a digi stamp from Mo Manning colored with my Copics. Papers from Prima and Bo Bunny. I also used circle dies from Spellbinders and Lawn Fawn. The edge punch with stars is from Martha Stewart. I aslo added a small circle with number eight on the t-shirt.

:: Prima BAB February ::

I always love all challenges over at Prima! This month I totally fell in love with Riikkas fun and creative sketch! This is my layout created for Prima BAP February

I went shopping last week at my favorite scrap store Pyssloteket! Anna had just got an amazing amount of new goodies from Prima!  Of course I boght a bunch of new flowers and papers! On this layout I used some brand new supplies and some older stuff. The fun part is that it is 100% supplies from Prima! I used papers from Salvage District collection called - Loire Valley, Palais Royal and Louis XIII. For my background I used a stencil called Static. I also used Color Bloom Mist Peony and Soft Teal. I used black and white Heavy Gesso. I made my heart by dipping the rubber end of a pencil.

I followed this sketch!

 Nothing makes me happier than create gorgeous flower clusters! Here I used Salvage District Royal Court - Trianon - Palais Royal, Vintage Emporieum Puccini - Intermezzo. I also used Victorian Christmas -Christmas Eve and some really old teal flowers and stars from a plastic bulb. For some extra sparkle I added Say it in crystals stars - Bedtime stories.

 I´m totally in love with the striped Roses! I need more of them!


 The wooden frames are called Wood Embellishments - Delight. I painted them black and sprinkled some Art Sugar White on them before the paint dried. The word Happiness came from a other box with Wood Embellishmnets called Create Memories.

 I wanted some circle shapes and I used a Prima Metal Die called Doily.

 Layers with beautiful flowers!

 On the tags behind my photo and at the left corner I used Prima Color Bloom Peony and Soft Teal. The tags are Paintables Parisian Tags. I just love how they turned out with some spray and a bit of black paint. To make the circles I just painted a small lid and made prints with it.

The challenge was to create a masculine project. This is my first take on Scrapki challenges and I´m really happy that I found them! Fab team and fun challenges!

I took this photo of my little man in August 2015. He was just about to turn seven and start his first year in "real" school. Just like his father he looove cars! At the marina were we have our boat they have car meetings every week during the summer and they are so fun to attend for Viggo!

 I found a orange paper from Echo Park Paradise Beach and had a fun time making the background for my photos! I used Gesso, Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paing Sky, Martha Stewart Acrlic Paint Indigo, Liquitex Acrylic Ink Phathalocyanine Blue, Ayeeda Ink Splash multipurpose Ink Silver, Liquitex Acrylic Ink Carbon Black, Liquitex Acrylic Ink Titanium White, Glossy Accent. With some of the paint I used a Brayer and some I sprinkled.
My chipboard is from Blue Fern Studios and I painted it with Distress Paint Black Soot. I also added Prima Art Sugar Charcoal.

 For more textures I used different stamps from Dark Room Door.

 I think the Washi tape is from Tim Holtz?

Last I added some Seaquins from Primas A Victorian Christmas.
