Challenge Me Happy

Posted by swewi on June 23, 2011

I hope you all know by now, that the first challenge is LIVE over at Challenge Me Happy! It’s a GOOD one, and you still have a week to enter. Someone is gonna win a fabulous prize pack from Magistical Memories this time. Cool huh!?

So go over there and check out the amazing takes from the design team. They truly blow my mind…

While you’re over there – grab our cool blinkie, designed by Michele Stone! Love it!

Sooooooo; this is MY take on challenge #1:



There’s a lot of misting and a lot of chipboard going on there. Quite like it I think!


OK, what else can I share: Oh yes, a LO with the “Lawn Party” kit from Studio Calico. This months kit is SERIOUSLY delayed, which is a bit worrying, but fingers crossed it turns up eventually!



Misting, clouds, you’ve seen it all before. It’s what I do at the moment… 🙂


Can also share the latest LO I did for the Allt Om Scrap big issue, published a few weeks back. Using Echo Park for this one. LOVE the colours!



Title says “morning secrets”. It’s not the greatest photo, but to capture a moment like this of my girls, sharing secrets and playing nice feels like finding gold any day…


Right – are you coming to SENZ this year? My first SENZ class is only TWO sleeps away! Unbelievable! This is what we will create:




Or if you’d rather make a LO with the same kit, it might come out looking something like this:



I hope to see you there if you’re in Auckland! To the rest of you – see you around in CYBER SPACE! Mwah!

One more sleep…

Posted by swewi on June 14, 2011

…’til the first challenge is LIVE over at Challenge Me Happy! I hope you will love it – I’m so excited!!

Today I have a few LO’s to share with you! First, three LO’s created with Basic Grey “Hello Luscious” for Allt Om Scrap, kindly sponsored by Dala Scrap in Sweden. In my sponsored kit was also Prima flowers & metal dekos, and a mini alphabet from Glitz Design. Thank you Dala Scrap!


Then, a LO that I put together in no more than 30 minutes last night, for a challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch:

Using a few fun techniques on that LO, and it’s not often I get three photos on a LO so I’m happy!


See you @ Challenge Me Happy tomorrow – ciao!

This post have been a draft for a few days now. Just haven’t got around to push “publish”! My new adventure Challenge Me Happy is taking some of my time, but that’s all good. I hope you have all checked out the blog and found us on Facebook!


I just have a couple of LO’s to share. LO’s that I have done for challenges on various sites! Having lots of inspiration at the moment, but not a lot of time to make use of it, so the LO’s below are quite simple. Still, I like them, and I like the style I tend to create in at the moment!





There. Better push that “publish” button now and move on! Thanks for stopping by!

Exciting news!!

Posted by swewi on June 3, 2011

Have you seen my new baby? My new challenge blog “Challenge Me Happy” have just been revealed! In the next week or so, I will present my awesome design team, and the first challenge will be posted soon! Come check out the blog, and “like us” on Facebook to be in to win a little something when we reach 100 fans!




Another exciting thing is that the next BIG number of Allt Om Scrap is coming out on Sunday! I assure you, you don’t want to miss it! Here’s a little peak:



In the last Allt Om Scrap ezine we showcased “white space”. This was my take on this theme:



It’s not the first time I’ve used Echo Park “for the record” range for a BoM LO. It just seems to fit so well for that theme!


More Echo Park; this time I’ve used the SPLASH line that I so wonderfully won in a Facebook competition. This is my LO for MY sketch challenge over at Scottie Crafts. As always there’s cool prizes to win if you enter the challenge.





And here’s another LO with the same range:




Just looooooooooving those Fiskars cloud punches!


And speaking of Scottie Crafts – only  sleeps ’til my first SENZ class for Scottie Crafts! Are you gonna be there? Go here to buy a ticket for my class, or any of the other fantastic classes that they are doing!


Then, a couple of LO’s that I made with the May kit from Molly’s Scrapbooking, using Pink Paislee & Bo Bunny’s butterfly ranges:






But wait – there’s more! A couple of LO’s that I’ve done for challenges over at Studio Calico and Cocoa Daisy:









Well, that will just have to do for now! More to come in a few days!


For you who are wondering about my photoblog; I am still taking photos and will upload when I have some time. Editing is my downfall, it just takes too LONG!!


And PLEASE – go check out “Challenge Me Happy“. Nothing would make ME happier!!!
