Challenge #6 at Project Life Norway

I like taking part in challenges but most of the time I just forget them - or the deadline! Today I was reminded by a friend that today´s the last day for the challenge over at Pocket Life Norway and I realized that the page I was working on would be perfect for it! Here are the rules:


So I went for the theme "Everyday", used the colors in the photo and at least three of the elements listed -  mine are wood, pearls, bling, birds and stickers. 


Here are some of the things I used (the ones I can remember...):
  • Fillercards and wood veneer from Studio Calico
  • Stamps from Hero Arts and Ali Edwards
  • Stickers from Snap Studios and Me & My Big ideas
  • Black markers from Zig and a red ProMarker (poppy)
  • Fillercards from Teresa Collins.
  • Gold Dymo labels
I have to give extra credits to my friend Pernilla who made  the beautiful hand painted heart and the gorgeous coloring to the stamped image of the girl! 

Tomorrow they will release a new challenge - and this time I will try not to be so late.

Pocket Scrap -Team Skaraborg

Hi peeps! I promised you a posting in English this time so that you all can read it.

Last Saturday I attended the Pocket Scrap - Team Skaraborg crop in Hjo and I had a wonderful day!
I got to meet a lot of friends and awesome people that got me in such a good mood and gave me some much appreciated energy! Thanks for being there girls!

Then something happened which is NOT usual for me - I won the GRAND PRIZE lottery which was a Canon Selphy!!!! EEEK! Isn´t that just fab??? Here´s a pic on me how happy I am (yes that big happy blob is me - I really need to cut those carbs!):


We also got a goodie bag that was insane! I wish I had taken a pic on all the goodies that were in there. There were scrapbooking papers, stamps from Heidi Swapp and Pysseldags, enamel dots, black marker, filler cards, stickers, washi tape.... 

Besides shopping, talking, laughing and eating I got some done too! I was on a workshop about making your own filler cards using paper scraps. I´ve done that before but it´s always great to get some new inspiration:


That was FUN and definitely something I will make more often. I don´t remember the brand of the papers but the stamps are from Pysseldags.

I also did three pages for my PL album:




For week 24 and 25 I´ve used filler cards from my Studio Calico kits and for week 28 from two scrapbook papers from  Simple Stories. I also used stuff from Heidi Swapp, Pysseldags, Simple Stories, washi tape, wood veneers, Me & My Big ideas and Cosmo Cricket. I probably forgot some too.... 

*****************************************
I also want to remind you about the ongoing contest at Pysseldags. Use only the colors from this pic:


... and you have to use stamps too! Preferably from Pysseldags, but you don´t have too. You can make a card, layout or anything else as long as you follow the rules. The winner gets 5 digital stamps and one random winner gets 3 digital stamps. Just click HERE to get to Pysseldags for more information.

Vänner är som änglar

Igår var jag på en underbart härlig scrapträff i Hjo - Pocket Scrapbooking Skaraborg - och hade det stora nöjet att träffa både Ciza och Malin från Pysseldags! Klockan var sent när jag kom hem så därför är mitt inlägg lite sent.

Idag ska vi leka lite skattjakt! Jag har använt mig av digitala stämplar från Pysseldags och gjort en layout om gårdagen:


Kan hitta de tre stämplarna som jag har använt från Pysseldags?
Om inte så kommer svaret här:
Förutom de fina stämplarna från butiken har jag använt ett digital kit som heter A² = Absolutely Amazing kit av Studio Basics.

Och vad kommer det bli av detta kanske ni undrar? Antingen kommer jag att skriva ut det och sätta i mitt PL-album eller så kommer det med i min nästa fotobok där jag samlar mina digitala layouter!

Trevlig söndag! 

I´ll be back tomorrow again with a posting in English!

Oh yes I did!

I finally did it and it didn´t come cheap. But I´ve been wanting them for such a long time that I couldn´t resist them anymore. I splurged and bought these wicked stamps from Stampotique:


I´ve been to maaaany scrap meet-ups and people really either love them or hate them. I adore them since they speak to that crazy Tim Burtonesque style that lies deep in my heart. I swear - if I´d live in London I would dress all goth and wear my hair like Helena Bonham- Carter:


But now I don´t. I live in a really small village and work as a teacher so I´m keeping a low profile....
Maybe when I get older and really don´t give a ..... what people think I will go all the way and be a badass lady!

I just hope they don´t take too long to land in my mail box and that they don´t get stuck in customs. Then it will be REALLY expensive....
