Today I want to show you a layout that I made for Allt Om Scrap. It’s a bit different from what I usually do and that’s because it’s a scrap lift. The team was asked to scrap lift Janna Werner and I wanted to catch the feeling in her layouts but yet do it my way. Here's my interpretation:

And here's Janna Werner's layout that I scrap lifted:
Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful week!!

Those I love

There’s a new challenge up at Punky Scraps! Nat writes: “It's the month of love so let's go with it this, flowers and butterflies with a vintage twinge.” There are two different pictures to be inspired by. I chose the first one – for “the arty amongst you”. I LOVED that picture so my interpretation is quite close to the inspiration piece. I just had to find out if I could do anything like it – and yet make it look like a layout.
And here’s the amazing inspiration picture:
The background is made using Dylusion Ink Spray. I stamped some flowers and doodled some diamond shapes to make it more interesting. The butterflies are chipboards colored with Dylusion Ink Spray to fit the background. To highlight the photo I put two different kind of punchinella behind it. The one with dots is orange and the one with hearts is cerise, but it’s hard to show in a photo…
I really enjoyed doing this!! I hope to see you play along!!! Take care! :)

A Valentine layout for DD

DD asked me the other day if I could create a layout for her as a Valentine’s Gift. Of course I wanted to! :) That’s the reason why I chose a photo of both of us. I also wanted to create something that I know that she likes. She loves when I spray different shapes and when I splash colors so of course I did that. She also loves when it’s happy and colorful.
To create the hearts Iused a toilet paper roll that I bend to the shape of a heart.
There’s a love theme over at Allt Om Scrap today and I show this layout over there too. I really recommend you to go here to find some awesome Valentine inspiration!
Thanks for looking! I hope you will all have a wonderful Valentine's Day on Thursday!

A summery layout for ARTastic

The inspiration piece at ARTastic this month is a painting by Charles Meere called Australian Beach Pattern. Here’s my take on the challenge:

Maybe it’s a bit too much of everything but I couldn’t help myself. It was SO fun to pick up a photo from last summer and scrap a summery layout in the middle of the long, dark and cold winter! (When I did the layout it was -20 Celsius degrees over here - and we were NOT eating ice cream on the beach…). :)
I used gesso, acrylic paint and some stamps on the background. And there are a lot of summery details – flowers, strawberries, flies, bottle caps and ice cream brads…
Mmm… I long for a warm day at the beach…
Thanks for looking!! I hope to see your interpretation over at ARTastic!!!
Take care!!

The day after...

There’s a new challenge up at Kraft It Up! This month you are supposed to use stickers on your layout! I haven’t used any stickers lately so this was fun to me! :)
This photo was taken the day after Christmas. (Santa Claus visits us on the 24th so I finally got some use of embellishments with the number of 25). When DD woke up to all the new toys that were waiting for her all over the house she was SO happy. I got the feeling that this might be even better than Christmas Eve and that’s what the layout is about.
The flowers, some of the stripes and the alphas are stickers.
I also want to share the news that I was asked to pick my three favorite layouts and write some words about some different techniques that I have used over at Svensk Scrapbooking. I'm very honored and I really recommend you to hang around over there!!! If you want to have a look at my favorites you can go over here.
Thanks for popping by! Take care!!
