SOUS August 26th - a door sign for Peter - and a winner for my (one month old) give away

Happy weekend everyone. I am so sorry I am late with my SOUS blog post for this week, but here it is :) It will be a short post as my inlaws are here and I also need to prepare for my trip to Barcelona this week (mon till fri - so excited). I have also found a winner for my little give away on the blog hop in july, but you will have to wait till the end of the post for that ;)

This weeks challenged called for a project with something you see in the sky. I have wanted to make a door sign for my son's room, for a while and this was perfect for it:

Cuts I have used for this is:

Every day paper dolls: Space sip and the little aliens
Indy Art: the flame
Hello Kitty font (round) and lyrical letters for the text.

I started with painting a piece of wood with acrylic paint. I used decoupage glue to attach the patterned paper and later the letters and die cuts. Now I just need to find a good way to attach this to his door...

Now to the give away :) I wanted to include something made in Norway, so I choose this cool stamp by "Papirdesign" - great for boy cards. I also found some really cute cake doilies, and for a third little thing I picked out this cute little rub on alphabet from doodlebug design (I needed to keep this small as it will be traveling far...) First a picture:

Then a drumroll....brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr:

And the winner is the 7th comment which was from
Congratulations :)
Send me a mail with your address (you have my mail address I believe) and I will send it to you!

SOUS 12. august - Playing with my new tractor

Welcome to the new die cut challenge at SOUS. Hope you stop by there to see all the new details if you did not come from there. The first challenge has the title "Play". You can use any cut from any cricut cartridge or any other die cut machine, but you need to make something that has to do with playing.

I have made a layout of my son and his toy tractor. It is a different kind of layout. Inspired by the norwegian scrapper Brit:

Cuts I have used (if I remember it correctly...):
Every Day Paper Dolls: Trees, barn, hens, pigs, tractor, sun and skies
Pooh and Friends: Fence, sign and grass.

Hope you liked my layout. Loved making it :)

PS! I am sorry but I have not yet had the time to find a winner 
for my give away... I have NOT forgotten.

SOUS August 5th - A wedding card

First of all - thanks so much for all the wonderful comments from last week. I love blog hops. So many new acquaintances to visit (have not been around yet as I have been offline for almost a week but will visit you all during this weekend, and will draw a give away winner :)

Today on Stuck On U Sketches we have a beautiful sketch for you by our own Leah Schaeffer. I had too many things to do before I left for vacation, so I combined some tasks I needed to do and made a wedding card from this sketch:

Papers I have used are again scandinavian. The paper in the background is from the wedding collection from Papirdesign and the text on the paper is from 1 Corinthians 13 (in norwegian...). The pink paper is from swedish inkido.

Have used the combo grey and pink, with pink and grey flowers, pearls from Kaiser craft and liquid pearls in a grey tone color (do not remember which...). Have also colored my stamp from Magnolia in just Pumice stone to make a more vintage (B&W) feel to it.

On the inside I have used the backside of the text paper from the front page. I also cut out a piece with the closing phrase from the bible verse ("and now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love"). Stamp on my "greeting tag" is from pink paislee (butterfly garden). 

On the backside I have used my personal stamp for decoration :)

Hope everyone is having a great summer. I am on vacation and are knitting and reading instead of scrapping, but hope you will have time to join our challenge at SOUS, and visit the rest of the team. Especially to welcome Jane Stirling :)
