Bye 2013 – Welcome 2014

Posted by swewi on December 31, 2013

With the year I have had in my personal life, I am happy to see the back of 2013!

From a creative perspective, it has been OK 🙂 I didn’t get as much time to create as I maybe wanted, but I treasured each creative moment massively. In 2013 I joined two amazing teams/sites: Sketchabilities and PaperHaus. I was also lucky to be a guest designer for D-Lish scraps, my GO-TO shop for most of my embellies! I am so thankful for the opportunities I had this year!

I decided to close my own challenge site, Challenge Me Happy. Not an easy decision, it was so much fun running it!

I kept myself busy with Crazy Monday Kits, adding PL kits to the family in July! It’s hard work when you already work full time and raise a family but I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing it! The scrapbooking business is a very hard business to be in. I am hoping things will run smoothly and successfully in 2014 for Crazy Monday Kits, and me!

I have been enjoying doing Project Life this year as well, and have been sharing some of my pages here. I am a few months behind at the moment, but who cares! It will get done, and my family LOVES looking through my albums, and that’s all that matters to me!

And finally, my favourite LO’s of 2013. In no particular order, here you go. (My previous favourites can be found here: 2012, 20112010, 2009, 2008).

Tell me your favourite in the comments, and I will send a RAK to one lucky commenter. Thank you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

A little share

Posted by swewi on June 16, 2013

Hi everyone! Just thought I’d share a couple of LO’s. If you follow my OTHER TWO blogs, you will have already seen them, but here they are all the same 🙂

First one is the LO for the latest challenge over at Challenge Me Happy, a recipe challenge. Love these photos of my handsome man, and he truly anchors me when I’m needing a bit of stability…

Love this range from GLITZ, and it suits the theme perfectly!

Then a LO with a funny edge – with the June kit from Crazy Monday Kits – Swaggerlicious. I convinced my daughters to to a photo shoot with paper mustaches 🙂 Such a scrapbooking mum thing to do! But I LOVE the result, and we all had fun!


Here is Tova, and the journaling explains how she embraced the mustache perfectly, pretending to be a French chef!!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you found a little bit of inspiration!

Just one more…

Posted by swewi on May 16, 2013

Just a quick post, sharing my LO for the lastest WORD challenge over at Challenge Me Happy! The word is WATER, and I had a million photos that I could have chosen for this, but I chose one of my favourite photos from our family photo shoot with Hannah in January. Just LOVE this shot!

Again, I have used AMAZING paper & embellies from Crate Paper. This time it’s mostly the Maggie Holmes collection. Hope you enjoy, and come and show us YOUR take on this challenge over at the Challenge Me Happy blog!

Post 299

Posted by swewi on April 19, 2013

I promised you another post, so here it is. Post 299 in the history of this blog. Must do a giveaway in post 300. Don’t you agree?

Anyway. You might have seen this LO either on the Challenge Me Happy blog or the Crazy Monday Kits blog. It’s for the current sketch challenge over at Challenge Me Happy, and I’ve used the Crazy Monday April kit to create the LO. And my silhouette cameo. I loooove my silhouette. But you already knew that 🙂



For details go to the Crazy Monday Kits blog!

Also, here’s another LO with the Maggie Holmes line from Crate Paper that I did at the SP retreat. Adore the colour combinations, adore!








OK, so next time there will be a giveaway. Deal?

Is this thing on??

Posted by swewi on December 6, 2012

Hello. My name is Annelie & I am a bad blogger. And recently, a bad scrapper. There is a reason though, for that. Someone stole my time. And my mojo. Buggers…


Aaaanyway. I’d thought I’d blog the two LO’s I made with the Crazy Monday November kit. You might have already seen them on the kit blog, or on Facebook. But wanted to share them here anyway. I love the November kit, but then I say that about every kit. 🙂

Hello gorgeous

Hello gorgeous detail

As you see, I have played w my Silhouette Cameon on this second LO. I love it. I can’t wait ’til I have more TIME to play with it and utilise it more. Whenever that might be.

Also, I’m hoping to find some time to create with the Crazy Monday December kit. And some time to catch up on Project Life would also be good.

Oh, here’s another LO I haven’t shared by the way. For a colour challenge over at Challenge Me Happy. In the current challenge you can win a GDT spot. Go check it out!!

the wonder that is you

NOW. I need to get my house and life in order. My family from Sweden is arriving in 11 sleeps!!! Can’t wait, but the house is a MESS!! Help!! 🙂

It will be good. It will be great, I can’t wait!!

Sad farewell

Posted by swewi on September 23, 2012

When I decided to start my own kit club; Crazy Monday Scrapbooking Kits I had to say farewell to Mollys Scrapbooking. It was a really hard thing for me to do, because the owner Lilo and the other DT girls are an amazing bunch, and Lilo has given so generously both in products and in friendship. She is one fab lady, and I will miss her very much.

A little while ago I shared my last LO over on the blog, and here it is for you as well. Using Studio Calico, and a few other things from the shop.


I will miss you – Mollys Scrapbooking!! But… If you are a follower of the Crazy Monday Scrapbooking Kits blog, maybe you’ll see a collaboration between the two of us in the future…

And of course – I am elated & excited about my own business! And it’s going suprisingly well!! The subs are sold out, and I even have a waiting list. So might be able to add some more subs soon!

While waiting for the products for the October kit, I have been creating with my September kit; “Teal Your Story”. I’m in love with this colour scheme. So fresh and vibrant! Here are my latest two LO’s with the kit:

Over on the Facebook page there is an opporunity to win a RAK at the moment, we just need to make our way up to 200 likes. Go on over there if you haven’t already.

And as always – there are ongoing FUN challenges over at Challenge Me Happy! Current prize is a GDT spot with us – wouldn’t that be fun?!?!

Thanks, as always for stopping by!!

Hello hello

Posted by swewi on August 28, 2012

Oooooh it’s almost time to reveal my first kit wih Crazy Monday Kits. I’m very excited!!!

In between looking for cool products for the October kit, and packing the September kit, and deciding on new challenges for Challenge Me Happy (and working and hanging out with the family) I have scrapped! Yes! A little bit anyway! 🙂

Adrienne from Scrappin’ Patch send me a box full of gorgeous Fancy Pants papers & embellies, and she’s now selling the same sort of box in the shop so that you can replicate my LO’s if you want to. This is what I did, and I LOOOOVE the coulours in this collection!










I’m sure I have more to show, but doing a sneaky post from work, so this will have to do now. Adios!

The cat is out of the bag & the voucher winner!

Posted by swewi on August 17, 2012

Well, if you follow me on Facebook, you now know my scrappy secret – I have started a kit club!

I am BEYOND excited! Please check it out here if you haven’t already http://crazymondaykits.wordpress.com/ or find it on Facebook here www.facebook.com/CrazyMondayScrapbookingKits.

A big shout out to Adrienne from Scrappin’ Patch who has helped me a lot behind the scenes, and also to Lilo from Mollys & Marie from Little Yellow House kits who has given me a lot of pointers in my process of this.

Starting this company with some help from people in the same boat as me has taught me that the scrapbooking world is not all about competition and money. Friendship and other people’s success is worth a WHOLE lot!

So as you can imagine, a lot of my time has revolved around this adventure. Haven’t scrapped as much as I would have liked, but Mr Mojo being holiday has also played a big part in that!

I have however done some stuff, and I’d like to share those!


First up a LO for Mollys using a cool Dylusion’s mask & Studio Calico “Heyday” collection:


For the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge – BOM – using Echo Park papers & stickers, sponsored by Scrappin’ Patch:

I’ve also had a couple of cards up on the Kite Tails blog, and today you can read my persentation on the blog as well!

For more inspiration from me, be sure to stop by the Scrappin’ Patch blog tomorrow, I’ve got some fun LO’s to share!!

OK – voucher winner! There were 13 comments on the blog, and one on FB who get’s no 14, and the winner issssssssssssssss:

Congrats topkatnz/Heidi! Email me to get the deets on the voucher, and happy scrapping!

Thanks to everyone who comes back to visit, and comment. I really, REALLY appreciate it. Hope you will come and visit me on my new site as well! Happy weekend!

Behind the scenes…

Posted by swewi on July 31, 2012
