A Scrapbooking Swewi

I got a brand new kit to create with from the lovely Patch ladies, and I’d like to share what I did with a Tattered Angels Bingo Card! It’s soooooooo simple, but I think it added a lot to my page.

I scrunched the card up, and then DRENCHED it in Shimmerz. The particular colour I used is sold out, but there are still tonnes to choose from in the shop!

I left the card to dry over night, and then I added a lot of Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Vintage Photo”, which I used on all the paper I used on my LO as well.

Then placing the card behind the photo and all the dekos, I just think it added that “little extra” we all look for…

Other products used:

Rose Moka pp, Webster’s Pages pp, Prima music pp, vine, alphas & pebbles, Tim Holtz tickets, Kaisercraft & 7gypsies stamps, misc chipboard heart painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint & distress ink. Also used Shimmerz on the Prima alphas.

Have you been scrapping this weekend???

Something’s gotta give…

Posted by swewi on January 19, 2010

…and it seems to be my blog. I’m just not updating it as often as I would like to. My life is pretty crazy at the moment, and my blog has to suffer. For now…

BUT – today I’m here, showing off some of my latest creations!

First, a black and white LO that is up on the SWE Scrapbook blog today. I put this LO together in about 15 minutes, and I totally love it…


Then, a LO for A 2 Z Scraplets, using their chipboard stars:


Two LO’s for challenges over at Magistical Memories:


For a sketch challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch I did this LO;  “Strolling along”. Can you spot the A 2 Z Scraplets bird?

I know, I should tell you about all the products I have used. Honestly, I’m too tired tonight. Please feel free to ask me if you want to know what a certain product is. Most of the stuff I have used can be found at Scrappin’ Patch of course.

Thank you VERY much for visiting my blog. I hope you keep coming by even though my updates are few and far between nowadays…

’til next time!

I’m here

Posted by swewi on January 9, 2010

Haven’t posted for a while, have I? I have been busy though… Been crazy busy actually! Both with family life, and with creating. Sent my first creations for Up2Scrap down to the mag yesterday, and that stuff has taken me a WHILE to finish.

I’d like to share a couple of projects with you though, if I may? Oh – I can? Right… It’s my blog!!!

First a LO with Basic Grey’s new line “Sugar Rush”, for the current sketch challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch:

The alphas are AC, the rest is Basic Grey!

Then, a LO for SWE Scrapbook blog. The challenge is to use chipboard, dimensional magic & journaling spot on the LO:

The title says “to just be”. The papers and embellies are Bella Blvd, hournaling sprout frmo Jillibean Soup, the lovely chipboard house is A 2 Z Scraplets (I painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint) and the alphas are AC. I’ve used the dimensional magic on the owl’s eyes, and in the middle of the flowers!

Then, apart from working my butt off on that Up2Scrap breif, I have also done four LO’s for a kit at Scrappin’ Patch. Take a look here, if you want a taste of that!!!

Also, I’ve been creating behind the scenes for A 2 Z Scraplets, so keep your eyes open to see what I have done for them!

Right, off to bed now! Thanks for stopping by. Hope your 2010 have started just as creative as mine has!!

Aaaaaaand – we’re off!

Posted by swewi on January 1, 2010

Yes!!! I have just finished my first LO in 2010! I can’t share with you just yet, but luckily I have some other stuff to share today!!

First  a LO that I loooove, that nearly made it to the top ten of 2009. It was up on SWE Scrapbook blog yesterday, we challenge you to scrap monochromatically! I chose purple/cerise this time!

The title says “my favourite photo of you”, and I have used papers from Rose Moka & Glitz design. Flower and leaves are Prima, the leaves are sprayed with two different colours of glimmermist. Bling is from Kaisercraft, bookplate from Tim Holtz & alphas are Rose Moka, Basic Grey and AC. The feathers looks more purple in real life by the way…


Then, a couple of projects that I did with papers from my latest Scrappin’ Patch kit. Am still working on a “take out” kit, this was just for some inspiration.

The papers are Jillibean Soup, and first out I’d like to show you a LO:

Did this LO just before 2009 became 2010… Other products than Jillibean Soup are Bazzill cardstock, Prima daisy vine, MM vintage findings word fetti, Kaisercraft stamp, Jillibean Soup ribbon, Prima alpha, Pink Paislee numbers & my Stampin’ Up slit punch.

I also made a little Welcome sign that now sits in our entrance:

close up:

The frame used to be pine coloured, I just painted it with black scrapbooking paint from MM. Other products: Bazzill cardstock, 2Crafty chipboard fence painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint, Magistical Memories Chipboard potty people, Martha Stewart butterfly punch. (The ribbon, alphas and the other patterened papers are from newer ranges of Jillibean Soup, that I got in a kit at the Sketchbook Retreat.)

Right, I’m gonna put my first LO into an album. Have you done your first LO yet??????
