SOUS March 18th - with a little blog candy from Generations crafting

 For the second time in a row it was Peter Olai's turn to have a page done! Love this picture of him on his first birthday, which we actually celebrated in the woods picking blueberries and eating cupcakes. This week at SOUS we had a great sketch with multiple photo opportunities to play with. Sketch is by Becky Fleck. As usual the sketch is just a guide, so I have used only two photoes, and as you can see if you take a look at what the other designers have done, there are many excellent ways to do it!

Sketch by Becky Fleck

My layout this week is quite simple. My favourite bazill craft cardstock as background, and some brown and turqouise patterned papers (I do not remember producers right now). Have used a frame from gypsy wanderings to surround my title which is cut with Printing Press (title meaning one year).

For embellishments I have used buttons, a little ribbon, staples, safety pins and some heart shaped charms.  You can see here how I fastened the charms with a safety pin. 

Not much more to tell you about this layout. Please stop by the SOUS blog, and you will have two weeks to join our challenge! We are also offering some blog candy this time, generously sponsored by Generations craftingTo be in the running for the blog candy you MUST submit to THIS (3-18) challenge as well as the NEXT (4-01) challenge. Package is filled mainly with Glitz papers and embellishments. Yummy colours!!


Hope to see you over at Stuck On U Sketches!!

SOUS March 4th - Lykkeliten

Peter Olai one day old

 It is time for another challenge on Stuck On U SKetches - I can't believe how fast time flies! This week we have a gorgeous sketch for you by Suepup. I have to admit that I struggled quite a bit with this one, but in the end I was very happy!

I have used my sowing machine a lot on this LO, all the different panels are sown on. Papers used are, craft cardstock by bazill for base, pattered papers from Panduro (the dotted in the background), Magnolia and 7gypsies. Have also used some lace, paper roses and a pearl swirl from Prima (cut into pieces...). The most special thing for me is a little doily crocheted by my late grandmother. I have kept it in my stash for a long time, but finally found the perfect use for it:

Another thing to mention is that I got my Gypsy last week, and I absolutely love it. Title for this page is welded with my gypsy, and I absolutely loved this font that came with it - Gypsy font:

Title welded on my brand new gypsy (I am so in love)

I am not sure what more to write right now, except to invite you to join us at this weeks challenge over at SOUS! Just a few more close ups to finish it off (a pictue heavy blog post i will say).

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Hjertebodens juleblogg - mine bidrag for februar

Eg klarte å fullføre 3 julekort også i februar, og er veldig fornøgd med det. Er litt treg med å få dei posta i bloggen, men slik er det vel stort sett alltid... Har ikkje tatt så masse bilder denne gangen heller, men her kommer iallfall en liten oppsummering:

Første kortet har motiv og papirer fra Magnolia. Syns dette stempelet er utrulig herlig! Er fargelagt ed distress ink refiller, hovedsaklig Walnut stain og faded jeans. Snøfnugga er fra Stempelglede sin julekolleksjon, og det lille tekststempelet fra Hänglar & Stänglar:

Det andre kortet har nissejente fra Hänglar & Stänglar og papirer fra Fancy Pants (Arctic chill):

Siste kortet har motiv og tekst fra Stempelglede og papirer fra Panduro og 7gypsies:

Da gjernstår det bare til slutt å gratulere dei norske jentene med stafettgullet i dag!
