SOUS february 18th - Winter and snow

Time for another challenge at SOUS, this time with a sketch from pagemaps. There are some changes on our team from this week. This is the last sketch you will see Debbie and Lisa do for our team. We are sad to see them go, but we are also happy that there are four other designers joining us from today. On the SOUS-blog you can see a presentation of them all, or you can follow the links to their blogs here: Ness, Bonnie, Dawn and Wanda.

For my layout this time I have again chosen some quite old pictures of my daughter (january 2008). The background paper has the word winter (or vinter in norwegian) written all over and is by Papirdesign - my local paper and stamp designer.
Snowflakes are from the cartridge Pooh and friends, and title is cut from Opposite attracts. Have also used some blue pearls from Inkido. Here it is again:

Hope to see you at SOUS!

SOUS February 4th - SUMMER JOY

It is friday again, and time for a new challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches. For some reason I thought this sketch from Scrabooks, Etc. was going to be a difficult one for me, but I actually enjoyed it very much as soon as I found the right papers (die cut paper from Bo Bunny and an old piece of paper from MME Magnolia).

I have kept it quite simple, but I will give you a close-up of some of the details. First; my title is cut with Cricut and Zooballo. I cut it three times and layered them on top of eachother to make a kind of chipboard feel to it. Love how that turned out. The rest of the title are Making memories stickers and then I handcut some blocks and used handwriting. The chipboard arrow I found in one of my drawers...

In the upper corners I have used a cute little butterfly stamp. Have also used some lime green dewdrops around the upper edges of my mat:

I cut some butterflies from some scraps, and I also drew on faux stitching around the edges. Instead of a round journaling mat I added a circle shaped picture.
The ribbon is adhesive ribbon from DCWV:

That was my take on the sketch. Hope you will take your time to visit the Stuck On U SKetches blog to see the other great designs, and you have two weeks to join us in this challenge!!
