Still without my laptop…

Posted by swewi on February 24, 2011

…and suffering withdrawals!!! Yep. It’s been like five weeks now. Can’t get to all my favourite blogs, or all my photos. It’s frustrating, but hopefully it’s not for much longer. Yeah. Fingers crossed and all that.

So I’m doing this sneaky post from my work. Ssshhh – don’t tell!!

Therefore  – a short post. I just HAD to tell you my latest news – I am now designing for the lovely shop Scottie Crafts! They are just 10 minutes away from my work too, just a little bit dangerous… 😉

My first projects for them will be up soon, but in the meantime – please check out their web shop, and the blog where all my DT friends are sharing their amazing work!

I have one LO to share here today, my latest one for Allt Om Scrap. We all interpreted the very popular style Shabby Chic, and this is my take:

And some close ups:


Products used: Theresa Collins pp, Crate Paper pp’s & stickers, Tattered Angels glimmermist, Dusty Attic chipboard, Prima flowers, pearls & mask, Pink Paislee alphas & artisan decos, misc tags, Martha Stewart border & butterfly punch.

Please check out the other DT members’ LO’s – simply stunning work!

OK, better get back to work.. 😉

Long time no see…

Posted by swewi on February 7, 2011

…and I blame technology!

First my camera died Christmas week. Then three weeks ago my laptop went bust, I finally got it back today (no major damage thank goodness). A week ago, my hubby’s PC also stopped working, so it’s been hard to keep up with what’s going on in cyber space, that’s for sure! (I’ve also got a replacement camera, so with my laptop back I now have 1000 odd photos to edit!)

Luckily life goes on, and I have kept up with taking photos every day. It has been a busy few weeks as I had my mum and sis visiting from Sweden. We had three wonderful weeks with them before they left last week, and now life is sort of back to normal.

A big change in my creative life is that I am no longer designing for Scrappin’ Patch. After two years on the team I decided it’s time to step back. Working full time has also made it difficult to keep up with the online commitment it means to be on that team. I already miss it, but it’s for the best.

Soooooo – I haven’t really had time to be creative, but I have a few things to share today!

First a LO for Allt Om Scrap, about the magical place where my home in Sweden is: TOLG.

Products used: Bazzill cs, Prima mask, Tim Holtz distress ink, Dusty Attic chipboard tree, BG Curie pp’s & embellies, Webster’s bloomers, Prima pearls & lace, Making Memories embellies, BG & Webster’s alphas, Martha Stewart border punch, misc tags & doilie.

This next LO is also for Allt Om Scrap; this time being inspired by the colour of 2011 – HONEYSUCKLE!

Products used: Fancy Pants pp’s, Magistical Memories chipboard swirl inked with versa color magenta ink, Prima flower & alphas, Making Memories paper clip, BG alphas, misc leaves.

Have you visited Allt Om Scrap lately? There are new ezines out every week, and we’ve just released a new AMAZING open publication. Be sure to check it out!!

Next I’d like to share something a little bit different. Magistical Memories make very cool easels, and I dressed one up and gave it for my new work mates on her birthday. She loved it!

Products used: Bazzill cs, My Minds Eye pp’s, Prima flowers, vine & pearls, Webster’s bloomers, Jenni Bowlin pins, misc birdcage & bird, misc ribbon, GCD, BG & Carolee’s Creations alphas.

OK. That has to be it for tonight. Thanks for visiting!!
