A boy page!

Posted by swewi on October 30, 2010

Believe it or not, I have done a boy page! My friend had a baby a few months ago, and I hace scrapped her little boy for Hannah’s colour challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch:

Products used: BG basics pp, MME papers & embellies, Tattered Angels glimmermist, Tim Holtz metal decos, Twiddleybitz chipboard, Zva Creative flowers & brads, BG alphas, AC thickers & Webster’s alphas & lace.

Then a LO “just because”. Doesn’t happen often! It’s quite simple, the products just makes this page pretty anyway I think. Oh – and my gorgeous Tova of course…

Products used: Webster’s Pages pp’s, lace & bloomers, Zva Creative bling & pearl swirls, & misc doilies.

Then, last but not least, a LO that I made over a year ago but I still LOVE it. It was for my Up2Scrap application. My term there is now over and I will share some of my projects I made for them here on the blog now and then.

Products used: Bo Bunny pp’s and embellies, Magistical Memories chipboard branch, Prima flowers, leaves & bling, Zva Creative flowers, misc pins, BG alphas.

As always, most of the products I have used can be found @ Scrappin’ Patch!

OK – I’m off to watch the rugby! See ya later!

Life is busy, but life is good. Work is busy, but good. We’ve had a few bumps at home, with the girls getting chicken pox (at different times of course) or the flu or head lice. So. Yeah. Life. But as kids are, they just roll with it, and do the best they can. And that’s what I’m trying to do as well with life. The best I can.

So – a LO with that title is what I’m about to share. The LO is inspired by a sketch from a very talented Swedish scrapper; Marie. She made it for the kit club “little yellow house kits“, owned by another Marie, who is on the Allt om Scrap ezine DT with me. The sketch competition is for a guest DT spot, and would love to have a go at that. So, here’s my take on the sketch. Please excuse the bad photo, I always struggle getting good photos of LO’s with overlays! And, please note that Elsa has stepped on the LO. Twice. It’s all about her at the moment, she NEEDS to be in every photo!


Products used: Bazzill kraft, Hambly overlay, Prima stamp, MM tag, Pink Paislee pp, tape & fabric, Marth Stewart butterfly punch, BG alphas & Zva Creative pearl swirl.

Will be back in a couple of days with more, I’ve been scrapping a bit lately, and have more to share! Ciao!

A few weeks back, some of the designers at Allt Om Scrap got a lovely box with wonderful supplies from the Swedish shop Creativica. In the box was some LOVELY paper from the Swedish manufacturer “Maja Design”. Here are the four LO’s I made with the sponsored material, check out the ezine for detail shots!

That’s it for today. More to come later in the week! Thanks for stopping by!
