Kunstner - SOUS 29th of october

This week the theme at Stuck on U Sketches is Halloween, but since I don't celebrate Halloween I have chosen only to use the colors with these cute picture of my daughter painting when she was little. Have used orange papers from MME (Magnolia) and Cosmo cricket (Joyride).

Have followed the theme of the pictures and used a lot of acrylic paint, for the edges, and to imitate her "painting style" (LOL). Have also accentuated the largest picture with pearls and rhinestones from Prima.

Have used flowers from Prima (got flowers) and a feather I found in my stash. 

Hope you will join us for this challenge with a great two-page sketch!

Trampoline - SOUS chlalenge october 15th

Just a quick post today as we are going away for the weekend and I should really get ready so we can go LOL!

Have had a great time doing summer photos this week. We have had a pretty great september here, but now the autumn weather has coughtup with us, and we have even had our first snowfall for this season. Nice weather to be inside and think about summer :)

Pictures are of our daughter on the trampoline - a birthday present to both kids from their grand parents. She has had so much fun on it!

Made a little scene with Every day paper dolls. it is quite amazing all the stuff that is on it :)

Title is cut with Printing press. Have not used it in ages, but knew it would be perfect here. Love how it came out in this bouncy way. Arrow I cut by freehand.

Think that covers most of it. Have a great weekend everyone, and be sure to stop by at Stuck on U SKetches to see the other designs and visit our guest designer for the week - Jane Stirling

Christmas in october

I have made another card - this time for christmas. Have used the sketch over at sketch saturday this week - week #123. Am also joining challenge #79 at Stamptacular sunday - layer it on, and week 75 at Just Magnolia - Anything goes.

Stamp is of course from Magnolia, colored with distress inks - mainly aged mahogany and vintage photo. Patterned papers I found in my folder of scraps. I believe the text-paper is from Papirdesign, but the other one I have no idea. Have also used lace and roses from papirloftet. Heart is a punch from EK success and branch is a McGill punch.

Text stamp is from Stempelglede and pearls from Kaiser kraft. That is all I think :)

Coolest in town - SOUS october 1st

It is friday again, and time for a new challenge over at Stuck on U sketches. This week we have had a super sketch from Becky Fleck to play with. Make sure you stop by and look at all the designs and see what the other girls made!

This is my take on the sketch. I have enjoyed looking at old photos on the computer this week, and found these cute pictures of my daughter at 7 months.

Have used bazill craft cardstock as a base (one of my favourites), and misc scraps for the patternes squares. Have also used a lot of bling (brown from Kaiser craft) and stamps from the norwegian producer Stempelglede, all of them from her "grunge collection". You can see on of the borders in close up here. I really love these: 

In the upper left corner I have cut some pink stars with my cricut and the good old george cart. Added some brads in the middle for more edge:

The title are some felt stickers I found in my drawers of misc stash. Think I got them in a LRS kit once, but do not know who made them. You can see a bit of them here, together with my cross stitches, which I made in pink scrappers floss:

A few more detail pictures:

This sketch was really fun to work with, so I hope you join us at SOUS!
