Hello again!

Posted by swewi on February 17, 2010

Well for someone who has no time for blogging, I blog quite often don’t you think?

I just wanted to share my last LO’s for A 2 Z Scraplets. They have posted their new releases on the blog now, so I can share!

This first LO was actually my first LO for 2010. I’ve used BG Origins, Prima vine & pearls, Carolee’s Creations, and on the scraplets word I have used some smooch!

The next one is done several weeks after, but I have used the same paperline – BG Origins!!! This time the scraplet has been sprayed with glimmermist, just like the cs. On the LO is also some acetate from Tim Holtz, 7Gypsies stamps, and some MM Vintage findings. I really love how this LO came together!

Last, a LO with scraplets that are not from the new release, the hearts. Have used smooch on the chipboard this time as well. Other products are Pink Paislee, Prima, Webster’s and 7Gypsies stamp.

And – like I said – a giveaway is in the works. Have tidied up my scrap studio today, and have a pretty good idea what sort of yummy things I could send along to someone else… So come back soon again!

An exciting week…

Posted by swewi on February 4, 2010

I have had quite an exciting week so far, scrappy wise. Loving it!

First, on Sunday I was featured/interviewed in the online Swedish scrapbooking magazine “Allt om scrap”. Such an amazing honour. I was stoked when they emailed me a while back and asked if they could interview me. So COOL!!!

On Monday, there was a new sketch posted over at Scrappin’ Patch. I made this example:

Products used: Bazill cs, stamped with Prima swirly stamps, ink is Tim Holtz distress ink. Inkido patterned pp, Prima flowers, leaves, pebbles & alphas, Magdas flowers, Carolee’s Creations mini alphas, MME journaling spots, misc pins & twine.

I love those photos, and am very happy about how this LO came out!

On Tuesday, a couple of special releases was introduced on the A2Z Scraplets blog. The DT got a page kit each from an Australian online shop to create with. Check out the blog if you want to see what I did, I won’t share it here out of courtesy for the lovely Scrappin’ Patch ladies!

On Wednesday I had a LATE NIGHT scrapping (thanks to my lovely daughters for sleeping nicely until I was done) finishing up a few projects. Among them the LO that leads us to…

… TODAY – Thursday! A LO that is up on the SWE Scrapbook blog today. We challenge you to use tickets on your LO. “Real” tickets, or tickets made for scrapbooking.

Products used: Bazill cs, painted with Shimmerz paint, Webster’s Pages patterned pp, Prima flowers, leaves, lace, bling & alphas, Tim Holtz tickets, and I have also used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. It was a real struggle getting this LO together. I really LOVE this photo of  Tova, and I felt that nothing I did could compare to the photo. But, in the end I just stuck things done, and I THINK I like the end result…


Aaaaaaand, today I also got a scrappy email that made me dance around a little bit – true story!!! Can’t share with you just yet, but sooooooon!!! It’s a dream come true!!!

So, a very good week for me so far. What about you?

Something’s gotta give…

Posted by swewi on January 19, 2010

…and it seems to be my blog. I’m just not updating it as often as I would like to. My life is pretty crazy at the moment, and my blog has to suffer. For now…

BUT – today I’m here, showing off some of my latest creations!

First, a black and white LO that is up on the SWE Scrapbook blog today. I put this LO together in about 15 minutes, and I totally love it…


Then, a LO for A 2 Z Scraplets, using their chipboard stars:


Two LO’s for challenges over at Magistical Memories:


For a sketch challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch I did this LO;  “Strolling along”. Can you spot the A 2 Z Scraplets bird?

I know, I should tell you about all the products I have used. Honestly, I’m too tired tonight. Please feel free to ask me if you want to know what a certain product is. Most of the stuff I have used can be found at Scrappin’ Patch of course.

Thank you VERY much for visiting my blog. I hope you keep coming by even though my updates are few and far between nowadays…

’til next time!

I’m here

Posted by swewi on January 9, 2010

Haven’t posted for a while, have I? I have been busy though… Been crazy busy actually! Both with family life, and with creating. Sent my first creations for Up2Scrap down to the mag yesterday, and that stuff has taken me a WHILE to finish.

I’d like to share a couple of projects with you though, if I may? Oh – I can? Right… It’s my blog!!!

First a LO with Basic Grey’s new line “Sugar Rush”, for the current sketch challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch:

The alphas are AC, the rest is Basic Grey!

Then, a LO for SWE Scrapbook blog. The challenge is to use chipboard, dimensional magic & journaling spot on the LO:

The title says “to just be”. The papers and embellies are Bella Blvd, hournaling sprout frmo Jillibean Soup, the lovely chipboard house is A 2 Z Scraplets (I painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint) and the alphas are AC. I’ve used the dimensional magic on the owl’s eyes, and in the middle of the flowers!

Then, apart from working my butt off on that Up2Scrap breif, I have also done four LO’s for a kit at Scrappin’ Patch. Take a look here, if you want a taste of that!!!

Also, I’ve been creating behind the scenes for A 2 Z Scraplets, so keep your eyes open to see what I have done for them!

Right, off to bed now! Thanks for stopping by. Hope your 2010 have started just as creative as mine has!!

Another year gone

Posted by swewi on December 30, 2009

Yeah, can you believe it…  Where did 2009 go? At this time last year, I was filled with lots of anticipation. A new baby, a new house in a new area, and new challenges to come with my scrapbooking.

It has certainly been an eventful year, both good and bad, but I guess that’s just life happening… There will most likely not be as many changes for our family in 2010, but there will most definately be ups and downs, and lots of different challenges.

In this post I will share the last few projects I have done this year. Tomorrow I plan to post my 10 favourite LO’s from 2009, so come back if you’re interested to see which ones I’ve chosen! And – why don’t you list your faves as well, and let me know about it!!!

Anyway, here’s a LO for the latest sketch challenge over at A 2 Z Scraplets. Be in to win cool chipboard by making your version of the sketch!

A few of my fav brands used here: Bazzill cs, October Afternoon pp & alphas, Prima flowers, Carolee’s Jenni Bowlin date card, and pearlmakers in different colours!

Then a minialbum that I made for Christmas for my mum. Just everyday photos of the girls. She loved it!!

The colour scheme is for today’s colour challenge on the Swe Scrapbook blog

I used an old Basic Grey album as my base, all papers are MME “Life story” collection. The flowers, leaves, bling and pebbles are Prima, and alphas are AC. Pink Paislee, My Yellow Bicycle, MM & Carolee’s Creations, misc pins & ribbon and probably something else that I have missed… Have also used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I made this album in two hours, but am very happy with the result!

So, see you tomrrow?

New scraplets and something white

Posted by swewi on December 16, 2009

I’m beginning to love this time of the month – the time the new SCRAPLETS are released over at A 2 Z Scraplets! Here are the ones that are posted today:

Have used pp’s from the lovely Norweigan brand 3ndy papir. Scrappin’ Patch is the only shop in NZ where you can get them! The scraplets word “crazy baby” is painted and then covered with kindy glitz!

Products used: BG Indian Summer pp’s, Prima flower, alphas and leaves, Kaisercraft pearls. The scraplet word has been painted with my new love – Smooch! A very shimmery sort of paint that comes in the most fabulos jar. It looks like nail polish!!

Products used: Bazill kraft cs with lots of glimmermist on, both “frozen lake” and “patina”. MME patterned pp & overlay, MM paperclip & alphas, Tim Holtz ticket, misc dragonfly stamp & lots of pinecone ink. The scraplet words have been framed with a black journaling pen, and the fern have been painted with blue Smooch.

This very colourful LO is basically all October Afternoon. The ribbon is Jillibean Soup. The scraplet words have first been painted, then I have made the spots with a yellow pearlmaker. That was FUN!!! I love spotty things…


And then, on SWE Scrapbook blog today, we are challenging you to create a WHITE LO. I added a bit of black, used a Yobi Kamada quote, and this is the result:

Products used: Bazill cs, scrap pp, Prima star vine, American Craft chandlier sticker, Kaisercraft pearls, AC & Pink Paislee alphas and Inkadinkado alpha stamps. I quite like how this came out! Simple, but cool!

I hope you are enjoying yourselves at this hectic time, see you all soon again!

Still blah!

Posted by swewi on October 29, 2009

Yes… Unfortunately I still feel a bit under the weather. I’m not REALLYL sick, but am not feeling great either. There’s a constant headache lingering, and you know. I just feel BLAH!


Anyway, I wanted to share with you my FIRST LO for A2Z Scraplets!!! It’s a LO for the October blog challenge, that you still have time to enter!! I was inspired by the colours in the ad, and the design of the ad.



Annelie Maddock - October blog challenge


The scraplets I have used are the two lovely flowers. I have painted them with blue and green crackle paint from Ranger. Love the effect! You can find them in Scrappin’ Patch’s  shop! Other products used: October Afternoon pp’s, alphas and embellies, Webster’s Pages alphas, Prima pebble and some twine.


Right. Better get back to my girls. They are over their last flu, but Tova’s got some nasty cough today, so will have to see what’s gonna happen with that…
