More D-lish and fabulous news!

Posted by swewi on August 7, 2011

Today I sat down and created a LO I’ve had in my head for a little while. It took me about 20 minutes to do. I had the idea, I just needed to decide on photo, colours and  go! It’s with gorgeous stuff from D-lish Scraps, some Prima lace/bling & alphas, and some glimmermist. The chipboard piece is from Magistical Memories!

Details, because I can!

Now, you might have noticed that I like cool embellishments… 🙂 So I am sooooooo excited to be one of the designers for the new, cool shop Handmade Halo Scrapbooking & Fashion Accessories! Go check it out, they have awesome stuff!!! Perfect for that “little extra” on your crafty project!

Hope you have a happy week. Something very exciting is happening to me this week, so it should be good… 🙂 ’til next time!

I’m a busy bee

Posted by swewi on April 10, 2011

Yes I am. But not with scrappy things really. Work is crazy, and family life is full on like normal.

I’m saving my crafty mojo for next weekend when I will be scrapping away at the Autumn Retreat in Taupo. Can’t wait! I just have NO IDEA what and how to pack. But that’s normal for me. I will just do what I normally do – pack everything…

I do have some LO’s to share with you though, but before I forget I’d like to remind you that a new ezine is out over at Allt om Scrap. The girls have created stunning stuff as usual, and also – please check out the big open publication from last week. Amazing inspiration and tutorials in there!

And – would also like to toot a little bit about Molly’s Scrapbooking. She has now opened an online shop! She still does the monthly kits, but you will be able to buy a lot of your other needs and wants from her shop!

OK, sharing! First a LO for Magistical Memories. I have used their scalloped border strip, and ther rest is Fancy Pants stuff!

I sprayed the border with pearl glimmermist.

I love my accordeon flowers!

And keeping with the colourful theme, two LO’s with Sassafras Lass for Scottie Crafts.

Banner made out of calico sprayed with glimmermist.

Leaves made out of calico, sprayed with glimmermist, then sewn on with my sewing machine!

Dimensional magic on the alphas.

Well that’s it for now. Would also like to say thanks for all your positive feedback on my last post. I didn’t get on the Lily Bee team this time, naybe next time it’s my turn. I am still happy with my creations, and that’s the main thing right?

Enjoy your week, I will be back after my weekend of craftiness!!

Beyond the page

Posted by swewi on March 26, 2011

In the last few months, I have not only been creating LO’s, I’ve also done a couple of  “beyond the page” things. This is really out of my comfort zone, but I thought I’d share it anyway…

First a name banner that I made for Elsa’s birthday. You know I LOOOOOVE banners! It was for the Allt Om Scrap ezine, using Magistical Memories Chipboard, Fancy Pants papers, Webster’s bloomers & some other odds and ends.

Then, I’d like to show you my version of the many birdhouses that can be found in the scrappy online world. I did one with MLS papers a while ago, and one with my latest Molly’s Scrapbooking kit!

I think that’s enought photos for one post… 🙂 I have a few LO’s to share, but will save them for another day! Thanks for stopping by!!!

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!!

It’s on my list…

Posted by swewi on November 22, 2010

…to blog. But I never get that far down on my list!

Work takes it out on me, and the weekends are just TOO short! Anyone else feel this way?

And then CHRISTMAS is looming… Crazy…

Anyway! I DO have some stuff to share with you! First, a take out kit that was sold out with Scrappin’ Patch before it even hit the online shop! Gotta love when that happens!

The papers I have played with are from Imaginisce, the dolphin stamp is also theirs. Add some cardstock, some buttons, some Prima flowers & bling, some kindyglitz, some lace,a chipboard crab, some buttons, some ink, some fabric to make a pretty flower  & some border punches and voila – four BEACH themed LO’s were born!


All the alphas are from my own (little) stash.

This next LO is also for Scrappin’  Patch, for my latest colour challenge. I want you to scrap in blue, pink and white!

Products used: Pink Paislee pp’s, alphas & embellies, Prima necklace, Green Tara mesh, Jenni Bowlin pins, Heidi Grace alphas.

And then, a LO for Magistical Memories with a little help from our latest partnership with Paper Trunk, Helmar, Nicole Lombardo Design & Clearsnap:

OK folks. That’s it for this time. Thanks for stopping by my little place in cyberspace!
