A week since my last blog post… That says a lot about my life right now. I hope things will calm down in two weeks when the spring term is over and the University is cleared out of students… I miss having regular craft time!
The eyes are covered with glossy accent and I added some Glimmer Glam on the moon and on the flower for some sparkle.
I used this week’s Card Patterns’ sketch:
For more inspiration with Prickley Pear stamps stop by the blog – the Design Team is AMAZING!
Have a fab day!!!
I made a tag using water color paper and Faber Castell Aquarelle pencils. A few strikes of the pencils on the paper and then loads of water and let dry – a sea scenery. :) It’s like magic!
When dry, I stamped the Shore Birds using Versa Fine Onyx Black.
The birds are covered with Glossy accent and the sea got some crackle accent and some sparkle using a glitter pen. It all gives some life to the sea, and who doesn’t love some sparkle???
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
…is a good thing. I need it. My friend needs it. So a Balance CAS card it is.
I used some favorite papers right now, simply ADORE the colors and small beautiful patterns of these Echo Park babies.
I tried to decorate the card but everything I tried messed with balance and energy so let’s say it’s more of a feng shui sort of card. Less is more, energy rules.
The card is based on Card Patterns’ sketch #165. ♥
Off for work. I’m having a lecture about Adam Smith and invisible and visible hands using a new fun tool – prezi.com. But I’m not sure if my students will end up seasick or if' it will keep them awake. Loads of zooming will take place… Fun part – my prezi ended up looking like a selection of scrapbook pages… ha! Good thing when the time to actually scrap does not exist!
Thanks for stopping by!

And here is my project, a pouch to a friend to encourage her before a demanding task at work. I’ll put it on her desk for her to find.
In the box I’ve put a little card and a little chocolate bar. A girl needs her chocolate!
Sorry for bad photo, the sun was so bright, and shadows sooo deep. Impossible to get a decent photo! But I’m not complaining – The SUN, haven’t seen that one for a while so I’m fully enjoying it!
Thank you for stopping by and playing with us!!!
Hi all! It’s FRIDAY! YAY!!! I soooo need this weekend! :)
I have a couple of layouts to share. The first one I made two weeks ago when I attended a lovely crop hosted by Mia – Hobbyhärvan - in my home town Västervik. (which, by the way, is THE most darling little town…)
I went there with Mom and we had a great time. Thanks Mom!!!
Isn’t he darling. 1,5 years old and in such a bad mood… pouting… awwwww.
Here is another one I did over a month ago. Time flies!!!
This is a recent photo, of my boy reading. He discovered the joy of reading last year and I’m soooo happy he did.
Have a FAB Friday and a great weekend!!!!
Hi folks! Almost a week since I last blogged. Times flies! And I’m never at home. Sigh. Anyway, I have a few projects to share from the Crop I attended last weekend (had sooooo much fun!!!!) but I’ll save that for tomorrow and share today’s Prickley Pear project. My fellow Riddershom Design DT Mona Gry made such a beautiful Double Pocket Bag card a while ago and I had to try it out! So here is my take.
I used a beautiful paper from Pink Paislee Nantucket teamed up with some Kraft details. Blue and brown = ♥. I didn’t have the “right” ribbon, so I colored some white satin ribbon with my Distress stains Old paper. I’m not sure you can see it, but it' turned out with a perfect color to go with the bag (which is more greenish than shows on the photo, bad lightning).
Here is a close up of the stamp Music Printers Label. Such a gorgeous stamp. You can Hcolor it and it will turn out wonderful, but it works “plain” too. It has such details"! I had plans of a vintage/shabby bag with loads of embellies, but once I saw the label matted on a kraft doily it was done. Quick and easy. Love that!
I’m just home for a day, tomorrow I’ll hit the roads again. Sorry if it was a while since I last visited you. I’m working on expanding both my craft time and my computer time. Maybe some day… I’ll take a tour later tonight.
Happy May folks!
A quick post, a day late…
Got to run!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
