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 …

An otterly great birthday – Lawn Fawn birthday card

Hey there, It’s been a long time since I posted a card, so I thought it was time! My friend Therese had her birthday in the beginning of this week, and it was just the perfect moment to try out my new stamp set from Lawn Fawn making her a birthday card. I have been coveting this stamp set for a looong time, and who can blame me, look how adorable it is! I love otters, and this stamp was just too cute not to pick up (it’s the Five Year Clear Stamps). It’s my first stamp set I’ve gotten together with the …

“You & Me” – Scrapbook layout with paint and a bit of lovey dovey sillyness

A week ago us scrapbook nerds celebrated our most beloved holiday: National Scrapbook Day! Of course, even though it’s called National Scrapbook Day (NSD for short), it is celebrated all over the globe. It’s a wonderful holiday full of scrapbooking zeitgeist, community and enthusiasm, and it makes one feel a little less alone in one’s crafting room. I made this scrapbook layout for a challenge on Shimelle Laine’s blog: Use Paint on Your Scrapbook Pages. I love paints! They are so, so versatile! And there are so many different kinds of paint media nowadays (when I grew up, I was …

Who doesn’t love a frog in a tutu?

My friend Micu had he birthday last week! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MICU! For once I actually remembered someone’s birthday in time to sit down and make a birthday card, which is way more fun than forgetting it to the last minute, and here’s the card I made:     I think I wrote “Happy birthday” in Hungarian. I hope I did! At least that is what it is meant to say! So for this card I opened up a stamp I have never used, because I could not find the right moment, until now. It’s the Tutu Toad from Stampendous, which …

Happy Valentine’s Day & Happy Friendship Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Or, as my dear friend Vanja chooses to call it: Friendship Day! I like her take on it much, much more. It’s more including, and of course you can celebrate your friendships! I don’t usually do handmade valentine cards for this particular day, but this year I decided to make a few for my closest family and one for Vanja and her daughter Nikki, to celebrate our friendship and the fact that whenever we hang out we have a great time, and always leave me happy and energized.We haven’t had a chance to hang out much for …

Hello christmas!

I know a very stylish young lady named Louisa, who loves Hello Kitty (she can also play winkle Twinkle Little Star on piano!). Well, I found the perfect hair clips for her last year, and wanted to send them to her, and it just happened to be close to Christmas, so there you go. I realised I haven’t posted the pics here, so since I’m all into the Christmas cards right now, I thought I’d add it now. I found a motif to match the hair clips, which I printed out and attached to a piece of chipboard to make …

Where buttons live
