June Use Your Scraps

This month, my A Page In Time Newsletter assignment was to work with the scraps from one of the three paper lines included. I loved the Early Bird papers from Cosmo Cricket so freakin' much that i saved up even the tiniest little pieces of it when working with my monthly designs and it served to be a good decision since I now could use it to make a card set with a box and 6 4x4 cards.

I also did a layout which I really, really like! You can find the layout and the cards in my Newsletter post HERE.

And tonight (LATE night here in Sweden), at EST 9PM we'll start the first official BLOG HOP for The Character Cafe, be sure to check in, there will be free digi stamp, prizes and discounts along the way!

And, finally (phew long post!), I've done a card using this week's sketch from 2Sketches4You. Tried a new technique (for me that is!) with glimmer mist. I've had it on my desk for a couple of months, but haven't really known what to do with it. But finally I simply drenched the paintabel with it and when dried it has this awesome shimmer all over it. LOVE how it came out.

Thanks for now, I'll be back tonight! (thank God for scheduled postings...)

Vad fint det blir med dessa papper och jag älskar dem också! Har inte hunnit använda dom ännu, men det kommer så småningom.
Det andra kortet var också fint med en helt underbar färgkombination! Vad fint det blev med glimmer mist, men det syns säkert ännu bättre IRL!

Tack för ditt besök hos mig och jag vill önska dig och din familj en trevlig midsommar med sol! ;-)

Tesa, du är LÖJLIGT duktig! Älskar detta kort, det är helt ljuvligt och jag vill genast ha alla nyanser av glimmer mist som finns! Asken med kort är ju också helt bedårande. Supersnyggt!

Du, förresten, I hate to be the one to tell you, men liksom det där med att fota barnen, den tiden är nu förbi. Det blir nämligen inte bättre, bara värre ... jag får bara foton av handflator nu för tiden. Blä.
