A Scrapbooking Swewi

This is the place where I share my creations!


Posted by swewi on June 3, 2009

In Sweden, June means summer. In New Zealand, June means winter. As I lived in Sweden for 30 years before moving here, I’m still finding it hard to put June and winter together. So I’m not handling the chill very well. Thankfully the last few days have been very sunny, so I get a sort of summery feel in the midst of winter, but I’m still confused…


Sometimes it helps scrapping summery photos to get the summery feel back!!




I did just that when scrapping the latest challenge over at Scrap the girls. Man o man this months challenge was a CHALLENGE!!! But you really have to get over there and participate, it’s awsome prizes up for grans as usual!! So, here is my eample… The story of the swing:

June challenge Annelie


Products used: Bazill kraft cs, scrap pp for tree and sun, the sun has been sprayed with “Lemon Zest” glimmermist, BG Lime Rickey pp for flowers and leaves, Fancy Pants die cut birds, and Amy Butler die cut butterfly, misc green ric rac ribbon & buttons, Carolee’s Creations and Scenic Route alphas. Have used dimensional magic on the flowers and the little “fly marks” for the butterfly.


Another summery LO for a challenge on a Swedish site here: “The worlds best Catti”.


Scrap 348


Products used: Bazill white cs, Deja Views die cut pp, Prima pearl swirl, flowers and leaves, My little shoebox & Heidi Swapp alphas, Heidi Grace drops & black journaling pen.


And another LO with my two gorgeous girls with the title “totally impossible”. The LO is about how the doctors told me that it was totally impossible for me to ever get pregnant. Right…

    Åh vilken lycka med två små charmtroll när du fått det beskedet 🙂 Underbara LO, gillar hur du gjort på den översta… med bladen trädet mm Super snyggt.
    Den supersnygga i mitten så fin i sin eneklhet och den understa så kärleksful. Måste vara svårt att ha vinter i juni :=)
    Kram kram Aase

    You would feel right at home down here Annelie – stunning days and snowy mountains (okay so that’s my version of Sweden lol!!)

    Underbart! Vilka härliga små överraskningar dina gosungar måste vara. En kompis i USA upplevde samma sak. Hon fick veta att hon var steril som 17-åring och idag har hon tre barn…
