SOUS - September 30th - "you are so big"

Happy friday!! It is time for a new sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches, and the last chance for a chance to win the give away for this month. This week we have a sketch with room for several photos, and I loved working with it. The sketch looked kind of girly to me, but I wanted to do boy photos, so there are a little less flowers on my take on it :)

My layout is about my little boy who is growing up so fast (OK - he is only two, but too me he was just a  baby...). I have used a patterned paper in the background from Cosmo cricket, the flowers are from Prima, and the clock is cut from the flowers packaging (recycling!!). The brads I have had or ages, and the alpha stickers I think are Making Memories :) Not much more going on on this one, but Peter was happy (as his sister he loves looking through the albums with the pictures of "the baby").

SOUS September 23d

Hi everyone! So sorry I am late with my post this week. It is time for a new die cut challenge at Stuck On U Sketches, and this time the shape is HEART. I had a wedding card to make - how perfect!!

This is my take on the challenge using the scalloped heart from Doodlecharms.

This is me trying to force the card to lie flat on the table

I have used papers from Basic grey and some prima flowers in addition to my heart. Have also used some pearls from Kaiser Craft and a cake doily.

The card is a tri-shutter card. Easy to make and looks great. No need for much embellishments as the card is decorative enough on its own. 

Card standig up

Hope you will take the time to visit the SOUS-blog and hopefully join our challenge. There is still a prize up for participants in September so try it out :)

The little doily I found at my parents house, and the angel wings is from Panduro Hobby.
Title is cut three times with the cricut cart "Stamped" and layered for a "chipboard feel". i then stamped it with a text stamp from pink Paislee. the stamp in the lower right blue corner is also pink paislee.

It is friday and time for another SOUS die cut challenge! I have realized that summer is over this year, but am very happy to start a new season  - hopefully with lots of crafting time.  

The theme for this weeks die cut challenge is FLOWER. I have made a wall/door hanging for my daughter. She turns five the coming sunday, so this will be her card for this year.

I have used one of my favourite tilda stamps from Magnolia for this (from the fairy tale collection). She is so cute and dreamy - just like my DD :) Tilda is colored in distress inks. Papers are from inkido and Papirdesign. I have also used some stamping in the background along the sides (stamps from pink paislee). And then for my die cut flowers. I made a rosette for the top of my ribbon using my Storybook cart . Made two in different sizes and colors and layered them. The two other flowers are a die cut from Marianne design, cut on my cuttlebug. Have also cut her name with the storybook cart and the little bird is also a die from Marianne design. Other things I have used is liquid pearls, some paper roses and a cute little cake doily. Hope you like it :)

There is by the way something I forgot to mention last week. Alda Stevens at the Flying Unicorn Store have donated a give-away for us for september. We will be selecting a winner from all the participants in this month's challenges. The more you play, the more chances you have to win. Here is a picture of it, so come join for a chance to win :)
