Scrapbooking Stash Dive – Pick 5 old products

Hey scrappy friends! Today I am sharing a quick and easy stash dive with you. The basic concept is this: dive into your stash, grab 5 products to use for a project, then create something! The “rules” are very loosey-goosey: one product can be a whole pack of embellishments, or a couple of papers from one collection., or just one teeny tiny little piece you’ve kept and just love. Also, you are in no way limited to the five items you’ve chosen; if you feel like adding a whole bunch more, go for it! But the goal is simply to make good use of those five products you’ve picked. …

Furry crafter’s companion – Scrapbook layout share

Hello, scrappers and muggles! I am sharing this 12×12 scrapbook layout today featuring the ever so furry and nosy crafter’s companion, Sixxten the Cat (our British Shorthair). This layout is made with the Basic Grey RSVP collection. Basic Grey has been one of my favourite manufacturers since I started scrapbooking, and I felt very disheartened when I heard that they are closing down production of their scrapbooking supplies. This is like the Sassafras Lass trauma all over again! My first instinct as a scrapbooker, naturally, was to hoard every last piece of paper from BG I had. Forever. But then I felt …

Crafty Catch Up – Sharing some handmade cards and scrapbook layouts

Well hello, ladies and jellybeans! As spring makes its entrance, so does the creative fever, apparently. We are on a bit of a crafty rampage in our household, which makes the crafting chaos grow exponentially. The Mister is building some miniature models, and is a huge stickler for details, which, if you are making miniatures makes it a very, shall we say, intricate process. He needs a lot of tools and strange materials to make things look the way he wants at the right scale and colour, and he’s constantly finding stuff in my extended craft stash that he can use! …

Celebrating a wedding – Scrapbook layout

You know when you are a scrapbooker and two of the loveliest people you know get married?And you get to celebrate them? That’s when you scrapbook the bazonkers out of that wedding! Photographs! Guestbook! Decorations! Albums! Oh, all the scrappy goodness. My friends Malin and Joacim decided to get married in the middle of March, and it was a fabulous weekend! The spring had juuust about hit Sweden, and the days before the wedding were sunny and warmish and… of course, the temperature dropped drastically on the actual big day, and the air was sort of crispy blue with hints of shimmery …

Too Much Fun – Scrapbook Layout

Once in a while you have a birthday and once in a while you have a party because it is your birthday, and it is rather festive and lovely and nice to invite all your friends and family, and bake cakes and cook food and drink good wine. Also: party decorations and nice shoes and hugs and music. Good times! The pictures in this layout is from my 35th birthday party, and I hadn’t had a party in a on while and just had way to much fun making decorations and invitations and stuffing my friends with cake. As it …

Friends – Scrapbook Layout

Happy Wednesday, scrappy people! Today I wanted to share a scrapbook layout with you that I made earlier this year at a big scrapbooking event i Stockholm. I was there with my two very scrappiest friends, and had such a wonderful time, which certainly inspired me to make this layout about the three of us. It came together quite quickly, even though I fussy cut the flowers from the Dear Lizzy “Serendipity” collection. The background paper is from Bo Bunny, “Forever Young”, I believe (slightly obsessed with this collection… there’s a paper with donuts on it that I just wish …

Date Night – Scrapbook Layout

Hey guys! I wanted to share this layout I made using photos from a fancy date night last year. Do you take too many silly photos in the mirror in the lift? We do! Well, I do. Mr Boo tries not to roll his eyes to much in the pictures.  Thing is, I love these photos. They are certainly not perfect; blurry and weird lighting, silly faces and me holding my phone almost in front of my face like a pro… But they make me smile! Boo looked handsome, I looked cute, and we had a really nice dinner on a …

Vibrant March Colours – Scrapbook Layout

With spring comes the longing for vibrant colours and creativity! I can’t help it; I just have to get my inks out! I have been very much in love with the bokeh effect lately, and tried to make something similar with my distress inks. You can’t do much wring with this technique, it’s just about playing and having fun! Gotta love those water-reactive colours. Quick and sweet layout to celebrate the beginning of March, when spring is finally in the air! Ironically my Instax selfie made me look completely pale! But I figure, that’s how I always look in the …

Dare to Challenge Yourself – Scrapbook Layout

Sometimes you have to dare yourself to do things, or they will not happen at all. In this instance, I dared myself to going back to the gym. I haven’t been in a proper one, like the shiny professional one with lots of other people in it, in years. I like exercising at home, I like taking walks, I like riding my bike. But lifting weights and going to classes is a whole other level for me. I used to be good at it, oh, say ten years ago? I aim to be good at it again. Hence this rather …

Walking down Portobello Road – New Scrapbook Layout

Some cities in the world you fall in love with, and you could spend days and weeks and months, maybe a lifetime, exploring them. London is such a town for me. And seeing new parts with someone you love makes it even better. The beauty of travelling, huh? Notting hill is one of those areas that maybe is not super-duper central, but oh so charming, and obviously Portobello Road Street market is one of London’s top ten tourist attractions. And I duly realize that of course I romanticize Notting Hill a little bit, probably partly because of the movie with …

You Had Me At Hello – New Scrapbook Layout

I am not a big fan of Valentines Day, but I am however a sucker for romantic gestures and spontaneous acts of sweetness and caring, big or small. Me and Mr Boo didn’t get the chance to spend Valentine’s together, which was not a big deal,  but being the sweetheart he is, he surprised me with this wonderful bouquet of flowers the day before the 14th. He’s a sneaky one, he is! He was going out of town, and I was seeing him off at Stockholm Central Station, having a bit pf sushi and coffee, and even though he was …

Ever Present & Curious – New Scrapbook Layout by jenandtricks

Does your pets sneak into your scrapbook layouts (or on top of them?) once in a while? Well, this little guys certainly does! Our little furry Sixxten the Cat can be the most quiet company you’ve veer had, appearing as if by magic to check on what you are doing, or, sometimes, being loud as a fuzzy little grey trumpet as he announces his need for hugs and kisses or just any sort of attention (seriously, this little one has got some voice). Sometimes he takes to drastic measures, and simply falls over on the spot with his tummy in …
