Sous February 24th - die cut challenge LOVE

I have a new layout to show you this week. With the theme of the week being LOVE, I found these pictures from our wedding and these beautiful new papers from Pion design - the "from my heart"collection. 
They had just the right colors matching the flowers from my wedding, but the best part was that one of the papers had the text of the song a friend of mine sang at the ceremony printed all over in the background. This is a song by the swedish a capella group "The real group". You can hear it in the video a the end of my post, but first to my layout :)

I have used three different patterned papers, but they are all from the same collection. "Love" is welded on my gypsy using the Gypsy font. I so love my Gypsy. It is so easy to use. 
Here you can see a close up of the flowers I have used. Most of them are from Prima, but the leaves are a Doo hickey from Magolia. The butterfly is a stamp from Pink Paislee that I colored with distress inks (Rusty hinge, barn door and Walnut stain).

These butterflies are from my Martha Stewart punch. 
I have also used some liquid pearls  around the page.

The beautiful frame is from the Cindy Loo cartridge. I have used pop dots to layer it on my text piece, which is computer generated and a quote from the same song as mentioned earlier. Translated it says: "I will always, always love you..."
A few more butterflies here, more roses and a swirl die cut, again from Magnolia.

That is it for today. Hope you will enjoy the song even if text is in swedish.

Et par prosjekter fra den siste tida

Har hatt det travelt med å korpse den siste tida, så det har vært lite blogging, men det var definitivt verdt det, bare se her:

(meg fremst til venstre med gruppeprispokalen)

No er det derimot på tide å vise fram et par av dei tinga eg har laga i januar. Har også hatt et veldig stort prosjekt i tillegg til dette, men det kommer i eget innlegg.

Har laga en LO til papiralongen på Casa Kreativ for januar. Oppgava var en lift av en herlig og enkel Lo av Gosti.
Har brukt en av hattane fra Pooh and Friends carten som passa perfekt til dette bildet av konstanse som er klar for cowboy og indianer-fest i barnehagen. Har ellers klipt ut stjerner av bølgepapp for hand og brukt dymoen min til å lage tittel - enkelt og greit :)

Mannen var i Ålesund i bryllup til Espen og Monica den helga eg var på NM, og han måtte så klart få med seg et kort. Fikk brukt av dei nye arka til Pion design. Dei er superlekre, både dei som er i rosa og aprikos-toner og dei blå/brune. Har pynta med halvperler fra Papirdesign, papirroser fra TreL, swirl fra Magnolia og blonde fra TreL.

Ses snart igjen i nytt blogginnlegg. Må bare scrappe litt først :)

First SOUS-sketch of February - Musée du Louvre

It is time for a new sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches!!
Sketch i for a double layout, but I have just used one of the pages. I hardly ever do doubles, so this was the better option for me :)

I have again used pictures from our honeymoon 6 1/2 years ago in Paris.

Layout is quite simple. I used a patterned paper from Maja design for the background, a metal frame I have had for ages, letter stickers from Prima, flowers and roses from Prima, lace and two cameos I have had in my drawer for a while.

Here is a closeup of one of them. Isn't she beautiful. I think I need more of these :)

Here is the current sketch. Hope you can use it, either for a one- or a two-pager.
Make sure also that u visit the SOUS-blog!

Ha a nice weekend :)
