A Scrapbooking Swewi

This is the place where I share my creations!

I’m a Friday fave!

Posted by swewi on June 20, 2010

In my last post I shared a very colourful LO called “sweet summer” using lily bee products. Today I checked their blog, and that LO was one of their Friday faves! Very coooooool!!!

I’ve just come back from a weekend scrapping with a few friends. It was awesome, and I got 15 LO’s done! Most of them, of course, are LO’s that I can’t just show yet, but here’s a couple that I CAN share:

This is for a colour challenge for the Swedish shop designat. The title says “swinging makes you happy”. I have used the new gorgeous “DeLovely” range from Cosmo Cricket, Webster’s Bloomers, misc brad & AC thickers. The chipboard clouds are from The Dusty Addict, they’re covered in “picket fence” crackle paint by Tim Holtz.

Then, a LO for the latest “budget to blitz” challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch:

The criteria is to use only one piece of cardstock, and one piece of patterned paper (double sided) to make your embellishments. I have used a Bazzill swiss dotted cardstock, and a BoBunny paper. Made my own letters for the title as you can see, and used a Martha Stewart punch to make that fence!

Then, a LO I made a while ago, for sketch #109 over at Creative Scrappers. The reveal is up today!!! The talent and variety of styles over there just BLOW MY MIND! Here’s mine:

I tried something different on this LO. I played with Tim Holtz crackle paints in the background, together with a Prima stamp. I then added some Pink Paislee papers, a misc ribbon, AC ribbon, bakers twine, a Hanbly transparency, a 7Gypsies tab, yellow pearlmaker, a chipboard fence from The Dusty Attic that has been crackle painted and inked, BG mini alphas & monogram. I REALLY like how this LO came out, but was stressing about it while working on it.

Lastly – it’s Sunday, so a new “Allt om Scrap” ezine is out. We’ve scrapped about “dreams” this time. Go and check it out, I’ll share my LO in a day or so…


Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you soon!

    I can’t believe you did 15 layouts … maybe packing your ENTIRE scrap room into my car was the key to getting so much done!!
    Everything you did this weekend was gorgeous … and I think I love the first one in this post the best, just so colourful and fun! I had a great time with you and the girls this w/e 🙂
