10 favourites from 2009

Posted by swewi on December 31, 2009

OK. This was tough… I’ve done around 300 (!!!) LO’s this year, and then add some mini-albums, a few OTP projects and a handfull cards to that. I’ve been busy! And – I more or less love every single project. But that has to be a good thing, right?

(Look here for my faves in 2008.)

OK, here goes, in no particular order (ask me tomorrow and I might choose 10 different LO’s…):

Another year gone

Posted by swewi on December 30, 2009

Yeah, can you believe it…  Where did 2009 go? At this time last year, I was filled with lots of anticipation. A new baby, a new house in a new area, and new challenges to come with my scrapbooking.

It has certainly been an eventful year, both good and bad, but I guess that’s just life happening… There will most likely not be as many changes for our family in 2010, but there will most definately be ups and downs, and lots of different challenges.

In this post I will share the last few projects I have done this year. Tomorrow I plan to post my 10 favourite LO’s from 2009, so come back if you’re interested to see which ones I’ve chosen! And – why don’t you list your faves as well, and let me know about it!!!

Anyway, here’s a LO for the latest sketch challenge over at A 2 Z Scraplets. Be in to win cool chipboard by making your version of the sketch!

A few of my fav brands used here: Bazzill cs, October Afternoon pp & alphas, Prima flowers, Carolee’s Jenni Bowlin date card, and pearlmakers in different colours!

Then a minialbum that I made for Christmas for my mum. Just everyday photos of the girls. She loved it!!

The colour scheme is for today’s colour challenge on the Swe Scrapbook blog

I used an old Basic Grey album as my base, all papers are MME “Life story” collection. The flowers, leaves, bling and pebbles are Prima, and alphas are AC. Pink Paislee, My Yellow Bicycle, MM & Carolee’s Creations, misc pins & ribbon and probably something else that I have missed… Have also used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I made this album in two hours, but am very happy with the result!

So, see you tomrrow?

New scraplets and something white

Posted by swewi on December 16, 2009

I’m beginning to love this time of the month – the time the new SCRAPLETS are released over at A 2 Z Scraplets! Here are the ones that are posted today:

Have used pp’s from the lovely Norweigan brand 3ndy papir. Scrappin’ Patch is the only shop in NZ where you can get them! The scraplets word “crazy baby” is painted and then covered with kindy glitz!

Products used: BG Indian Summer pp’s, Prima flower, alphas and leaves, Kaisercraft pearls. The scraplet word has been painted with my new love – Smooch! A very shimmery sort of paint that comes in the most fabulos jar. It looks like nail polish!!

Products used: Bazill kraft cs with lots of glimmermist on, both “frozen lake” and “patina”. MME patterned pp & overlay, MM paperclip & alphas, Tim Holtz ticket, misc dragonfly stamp & lots of pinecone ink. The scraplet words have been framed with a black journaling pen, and the fern have been painted with blue Smooch.

This very colourful LO is basically all October Afternoon. The ribbon is Jillibean Soup. The scraplet words have first been painted, then I have made the spots with a yellow pearlmaker. That was FUN!!! I love spotty things…


And then, on SWE Scrapbook blog today, we are challenging you to create a WHITE LO. I added a bit of black, used a Yobi Kamada quote, and this is the result:

Products used: Bazill cs, scrap pp, Prima star vine, American Craft chandlier sticker, Kaisercraft pearls, AC & Pink Paislee alphas and Inkadinkado alpha stamps. I quite like how this came out! Simple, but cool!

I hope you are enjoying yourselves at this hectic time, see you all soon again!

Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine

Posted by swewi on December 13, 2009

Adrienne and Pauline from Scrappin’ Patch sent me three papers from the Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine collection a while back. I created two LO’s, quite different from each other, but I love them both!

Have used Fancy Pants “Vintage Valentine” pp’s, “ever dear”, “pure love” & “my funny valentine”. Kraft Bazill as base, Prima lace & alphas, and also a piece from a flower packet. Tim Holtz pin, can’t remember where that tag is from sorry! The flowers are BoBunny, and have also used a few Robin’s Nest Dewdrops. I stamped my Montarga clock stamp on kraft as well, and have as you can see used a LOT of Pinecone ink!

Have used Fancy Pants “Vintage Valentine” pp’s, “ever dear” & “pure love”. Brown Bazill as base, two Making Memories pins, flower die cut from MME “Life stories” collection. The alphas are MM & Webster’s pages. There’s also a little word from MM “Vintage findings” word fetti!

You can find almost all of the products in  Scrappin’ Patch shop of course!

It’s still crazy busy over here. If you’re Swedish, you can read about what we’re doing in December on my private blog http://annelie.blogg.se. If you don’t understand Swedish there are at least pictures to look at if you are interested!!!

Have a lovely day, will be back in a few days to reveal my latest creations for A2Z Scraplets!

Busy bee

Posted by swewi on December 8, 2009

Well it’s definately December! I’m so busy with things, crafty and not crafty, I’m not even sure how I get through the day! I’m sure most of you can relate… The blog part is suffering, and I don’t like that…

Anyway, here’s a couple of LO’s I can share with you!

First, a LO for a recipe challenge set by Liz over at Scrappin’ Patch:

Products used: Bazill white cs, ONE patterned pp from MME, ONE rub-on from Hambly, ONE creature (bird) from Jenni Bowlin, Prima flowers – including an orange one, which represents the colour NOT in my photo, three SMALL PHOTOS, inked leaves cut out from embossed Bazzill cs. The gorgeous Prima leaves with bling are the ones I love so much I haven’t wanted to put them on a page. BUt now they’re there… Have also used black pearlmaker, and alphas from MM & AC.

Then a LO for another Scrappin’ Patch challenge set by me – use at least three punches on your LO:

Papers are BoBunny, alphas are AC thickers. The three punches I have used are; Fiskars “upper crest”, Martha Stewart’s butterfly punch and a Stampin’ Up punch, making the page look like it’s torn out of a note book!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your December is more relased than mine!
