Trees and leaves

Posted by swewi on February 23, 2010

Last night I did my first post on the Magistical Memories blog, showing two LO’s that I have done with some of their chipboard. I am still waiting for the first DT box to arrive, so while waiting, I created two LO’s with chipboard from my stash! Just because it’s not new it doesn’t mean it’s not fabulous, right?


Photo from our latest family photo shoot, by Positive Negatives.

Have used Basic Grey “Origins” papers & embellies, Prima alphas, pearls, pebble & flower, Martha Stewart punch, and misc. feathers. The Magistical Memories “White oak leaves” have been covered with Prima leaves, and then inked.

On this next LO I wanted to NOT use patterned paper, only embellies and glimmermist.

I embossed the tree in the cuttlebug, sprayed it with glimmermist, then highlighted some of the hearts with smooch.

See you soon, the giveaway will happen SOON I promise!!!

Hello again!

Posted by swewi on February 17, 2010

Well for someone who has no time for blogging, I blog quite often don’t you think?

I just wanted to share my last LO’s for A 2 Z Scraplets. They have posted their new releases on the blog now, so I can share!

This first LO was actually my first LO for 2010. I’ve used BG Origins, Prima vine & pearls, Carolee’s Creations, and on the scraplets word I have used some smooch!

The next one is done several weeks after, but I have used the same paperline – BG Origins!!! This time the scraplet has been sprayed with glimmermist, just like the cs. On the LO is also some acetate from Tim Holtz, 7Gypsies stamps, and some MM Vintage findings. I really love how this LO came together!

Last, a LO with scraplets that are not from the new release, the hearts. Have used smooch on the chipboard this time as well. Other products are Pink Paislee, Prima, Webster’s and 7Gypsies stamp.

And – like I said – a giveaway is in the works. Have tidied up my scrap studio today, and have a pretty good idea what sort of yummy things I could send along to someone else… So come back soon again!

Magistical Memories

Posted by swewi on February 16, 2010

I’ve done my FIRST official LO for Magistical Memories, using chipboard of theirs I already had at home, as my DT parcel isn’t here yet.


Can’t wait for that parcel to come though. I’m thinking there will be many of the new realeases (find them here) that are SOOOOO cool.

Anyway, here’s the LO, that I made for the current February challenge on the forum; scrap in the colours red, pink and white. I used Magistical Memories “say it with sass frame”. I dug out that gorgeous diamond dust I bought at the Sketchbook retreat, and this is how it came out:

close up:

Other products used: Bazill swiss dotted cs, Pink Paislee pp, Making Memories journaling thingies, flower from Etsy, Prima leaves, Jenni Bowlin tickets, misc buttons, Prima & Webster’s alphas, & a white journaling pen.

Doesn’t that diamond dust make that chipboard look good enough to eat???


Then, I’d also like to share a LO that is up on the SWE Scrapbook blog today. It’s a colour challenge this time, and this is my LO:

Title says “you, right now”, and the journaling is about a few things Elsa did at the time this photo was taken (28 Dec 2009).

Products used: Bazill cs, Pink Paislee pp’s, embellies & alphas, Prima flowers, Jillibean Soup ribbon, Heidi Swapp pins, Webster’s alphas, kindyglitz & misc buttons. I just love this colour combo…

Right… Then a couple of more LO’s from last weekend, when I was super productive… 🙂

Title on this says “reading time with daddy”. Being an alphabetoholic, I had no problem putting a whole alphabet with different fonts on the LO. Have also used my neglected pro-markers to draw the circles, and my not so great sewing machine to get some stitches on there…

This next LO is about something very important in my gorgeous Tova’s life – helping me making pancakes for dinner. She LOVES it!!!

Products used: Bazill swiss dotted cs, Pink Paislee & Cosmo Cricket patterned pp, 7Gypsies tape, Kaisercraft rub-ons & brad, BG brads, punchinella, MM pins & October Afternoon &  Jenni Bowlin alphas.

And last, a sneaky peek of a “take out kit” that will be available to purchase soon from the shop that has everything a scrapoholic can need – Scrappin’ Patch:

Thanks for stopping by people – and be sure to come back soon. I feel it’s time for a giveaway again!!!

I’ve got blisters…

Posted by swewi on February 11, 2010

Last night I worked on my last LO for the next “take-out kit” I’m doing for Scrappin’ Patch. I decided to punch some butterflies out with my new Martha Stewart punch, and at the end of the session I had BLISTERS all over my hand. OUCH! Sure, scrapbooking is a dangerous hobby, but I’ve never got blisters before!!!


I’ve had a really creative weekend…  Don’t know how really, as DH worked, and both Saturday and Sunday was pretty much as any day of the week. BUT – I ended up doing around 10 LO’s and a couple of cards! Some of them I can share, here’s the first one:

I found the Bob Dylan quote on the Magistical Memories forum, and I just had to scrap it! Has that ever happened to you?

Products used: Scribble Scrabble pp, Prima holiday light vine, Webster’s trim, Making Memories vintage findings, misc key & tags, Pink Paislee & Carolee’s Creations alphas.

Another quote – look at that! 🙂 This is ALL Prima, plus alphas from AC & Webster’s. I love this photo of Tova and DH…

This title is a little bit hard to translate, but it says something like “sweet little cutie pie”. Well, no. But you get the picture…

Products used: Bazill cs, Pink Paislee pp & embellies, MM foam hearts, Prima flowers & leaves, Chatterbox buttons, Pink Paislee & AC alphas.

Got inspired to do a LO with a banner, here I have used October Afternoon all the way, plus a couple of misc pins. Tova loves her trampoline…

Just a simple LO, title says “the ocean is your friend”.

Products used: Bazill cs, MM pp, Scrapbook king rub ons, & Prima & MM alphas.

Right. That will have to do for today. I’ll save some LO’s for next post I think!


Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

A dream come true!

Posted by swewi on February 5, 2010

If you have followed my blog for a while, you know there are certain manufacturers I especially love. You will also know I have tried from time to time to get on their design teams. Well, yesterday I got an email saying “welcome to our team”. This is the team:

Yes! I am on the Magistical Memories design team! I am so thrilled! If you don’t know about them, they make WONDERFUL chipboard products that are so easy to use, and the designs are unique! It’s not the first time I have applied to be on the DT, so this is certainly a dream come true…

This unfortunately means I have to leave the A2Z Scraplets DT. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and have loved working with their products. Thank you Julie for having me on your team, and thank you for being so understanding about me leaving!!! I still have some LO’s to share for them, and will do so when the new releases are up on the blog!

As you know I prefer my posts to have photos in them. 🙂 Therefore, a LO using BG “Sugar Rush” pp’s and embellies, and Prima flowers and alphas. The title says “summer life”.

An exciting week…

Posted by swewi on February 4, 2010

I have had quite an exciting week so far, scrappy wise. Loving it!

First, on Sunday I was featured/interviewed in the online Swedish scrapbooking magazine “Allt om scrap”. Such an amazing honour. I was stoked when they emailed me a while back and asked if they could interview me. So COOL!!!

On Monday, there was a new sketch posted over at Scrappin’ Patch. I made this example:

Products used: Bazill cs, stamped with Prima swirly stamps, ink is Tim Holtz distress ink. Inkido patterned pp, Prima flowers, leaves, pebbles & alphas, Magdas flowers, Carolee’s Creations mini alphas, MME journaling spots, misc pins & twine.

I love those photos, and am very happy about how this LO came out!

On Tuesday, a couple of special releases was introduced on the A2Z Scraplets blog. The DT got a page kit each from an Australian online shop to create with. Check out the blog if you want to see what I did, I won’t share it here out of courtesy for the lovely Scrappin’ Patch ladies!

On Wednesday I had a LATE NIGHT scrapping (thanks to my lovely daughters for sleeping nicely until I was done) finishing up a few projects. Among them the LO that leads us to…

… TODAY – Thursday! A LO that is up on the SWE Scrapbook blog today. We challenge you to use tickets on your LO. “Real” tickets, or tickets made for scrapbooking.

Products used: Bazill cs, painted with Shimmerz paint, Webster’s Pages patterned pp, Prima flowers, leaves, lace, bling & alphas, Tim Holtz tickets, and I have also used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. It was a real struggle getting this LO together. I really LOVE this photo of  Tova, and I felt that nothing I did could compare to the photo. But, in the end I just stuck things done, and I THINK I like the end result…


Aaaaaaand, today I also got a scrappy email that made me dance around a little bit – true story!!! Can’t share with you just yet, but sooooooon!!! It’s a dream come true!!!

So, a very good week for me so far. What about you?
