Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by my little home in blogland! I have been quite creative lately, and it’s time to share!

First, using Pink Paislee & Bo Bunny’s butterfly ranges. I got the papers both from Mollys and Scottie Craft this month, and this is what I have come up with:

More to come with these ranges. One of the creations I made is now gonna be a class at SENZ! Sign up here if you wanna take part in my first ever SENZ class!

A LO for Allt Om Scrap ezine, colour combo pink/green/white:

Next up a few LO’s that I have done for the Cocoa Daisy spring crop. I had a lot of fun with these challenges, felt very inspired!!

Out of these challenge LO’s, I think “soar” is my favourite. I love that I can use my typewriter on a 12×12 paper!!! Have you got a fav among the LO’s I have shared today?

Have a great week everyone, hope it’s a creative one!

{inter}national scrapbooking day

Posted by swewi on May 10, 2011

Were you creative in the weekend, seeing as it was {inter}national scapbooking day and all?

I was alone with the girls most of the weekend, so didn’t have loads of time to be creative, but managed to get a few LO’s done. Stayed up a bit later than normal to finish off a few things… I played along with the challenges over at Scrappin’ Patch, and Studio Calico. I even combined a few of the challenges, clever huh…

I also created some stuff for Mollys Scrapbooking!

So, here we go – time to share.

A LO for Mollys using My Little Shoebox “Farmer’s Market” range:

And then a LO for the latest Allt om Scrap ezine. We got a recipe to scrap from this time!

I’m still doing my simple LO’s, just to get ahead in the pile of photos I have that I want to scrap…

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a lovely day wherever in the world you might be!

Old papers and the RAK winner!

Posted by swewi on May 4, 2011

How often do you dig down in your pile of  scraps? I admit I don’t do it very often, and when I do it’s normally to do a big cull and donate papers to Tova’s pre-school. BUT, last week I dug up a couple of scrap papers to use on a LO, because that’s the latest challenge for the latest Allt om Scrap ezine. I have used papers from American Crafts & Bella Blvd. That polka dot paper is GORGEOUS don’t you think, and that was the last piece of it.

So, a simple LO with my gorgeous girls. The title says “sweet sisters”.

I’ve also used spellbinders & Martha Stewart punches on there. Trying to use my tools more at the moment…

While creating this simple LO, I thought I must try and simplify a lot more. A year or two ago I had a period where I just scrapped simple to get some photos done. I have a lot of photos that are not necessarily great, but they are important to my girl’s life story. I should just sit down and do some simple pages, not necessarily with the newest product, and get some quick pages done. Maybe. We’ll see how that goes…


And then, before I go back to bed feeling sorry for myself (I have a frontal lobe sinus infection or something… never heard of it. Just know it’s painful and my painkillers aren’t working), let’s reveal who won my little RAK…

Michelle W – that’s YOU! Congrats buddy! I like giving things away, so there might be another RAK coming up soon!!! Night all!
