DT-Layout for SOUS - november 26th

Just a quick post for now to show you my layout for Stuck On U Sketches this week. Please check out the blog to see the lovely sketch created to us by Vanessa Waller, and join in on the fun :)
We have had this really really cold weather (right now it is 15 F) all november - not much snow, but enough to take the sled out and give it a go. For Peter this was his first time riding on the sled.

Unfortunately because of the wintery darkness above the arctic circle, I could not really get a good photo of my layout. Have tried to fix it in iphoto, but the colors are still a bit off. Hope you can see past that :)

For my layout I have used this beautiful wintery patterned papers from Bo Bunny (Winter whispers). I have distressed and inked the edges, and the panels and the lace are all sown on. Other things I have used:

Die cuts: snowflakes are quickutz, swirl is cricut home accents
Title is cut with cricut - storybook
Snowflake stamps are from Stempelglede
Bling brads are from Papirloftet

Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday!

Et par kort

Dette er egentlig et par kort eg laga for ei stund sia, men sidan eg er en fryktelig treig blogger har det lagt klart ei stund uten at eg har fått det ut på bloggen.

Først et babykort laga på bestilling til en kollega. Rosa og brunt, med nydelige papirer fra Maja Design og stempel fra Wiff of joy.

Og deretter et kort laga til 60-års-dagen til tanta mi for litt sidan. Stempel fra Magnolia og papirer fra Basic Grey.

Takk for besøket :)

SOUS 12th of November

It is time for another sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches. I am a bit late with my post this week. It is my day off for this week, so I have been busy doing housework all day. What a blessing LOL!

This week we had a beautiful sketch by Vanessa Waller to play with. You can see it here. I have turned it the other way around, mostly because of the paper I wanted to use - these lovely papers from Webster's pages that have been in my "archive" of patterned paper for ages. Picture is of my DD from this spring. I can't believe how fast she is growing, and that is also what my journaling is about.

Everything except the ribbon are from the same collection from Webster's pages. I think it is from 2009, but I really don't remember excactly. Have fussy cut and layered the flowers  for some dimension.

Have also used my sowing machine a lot. Have sown all the panels, the ribbon and the photo. Have also used som decorative stitching as you can see here:

Thank you so much for visiting me. I hope you will take your time to visit the SOUS challenge blog to see the rest of the teams wonderful lay outs, and also to get to know our guest designer Lisa Gregory.
