Blogging for Reprint today!

Hi everyone!
Hope you´re having a nice Good Friday and relaxing with family and friends.
Today I´m not gonna show you anything that is Easter related - it´s gonna be a birthday card.
We have a couple of birthdays coming up around here so I thought I´d get a head start. The card I´m showing today has a teal and turquoise theme:




I colored the cute stamp Emelies little kittens - Keya with Spectrum Noir pens. Then I stamped the greeting stamp Grattis hjärta and colored that too with Spectrum Noir. I digged out one of my old decorative scissors and cut out the heart. I also inked all the paper edges.  
As decorations I used lace, half pearls, leaves, white flowers and a brown/teal flower. 
The papers I used are  from the new spring collection: Queen of heart and Vintage beige mini dots .

Oh, and I can´t do this post without saying that the stamp is designed by my daughter and the papers are designed by me so this is really special for me! <3 p="">

Easter greetings - well kinda...

Every easter I have BIG plans for decorating the house and making special treats and food. I´m pinning like crazy on Pinterest and finding all kind of wonderful things. But somehow I always seem to forget to plan ahead and in desperation I dig out some decorations to put around the house. Next year I´ll plan better - I hope....

With that said I wanna show you the new collab release from Juno Designs and Amanda Yi called Project Spring - Hippity Hop:


Isn´t it just adorable??? I love the little animals and the soft pastel colors. I tried to get some Easter feeling in my layout:


Today is also the day for a new design challenge at the Swedish site Allt om Scrap. You have to make something monochromatic in YELLOW.... ;) Here´s my layout:

My first Instagram album

Hi everyone!
First time I saw the cute little Instagram albums from We R Memory Keepers I fell in love with it and I knew I wanted a golden one since I had THE project in my head.
I bought mine from a Swedish online shop but you can find them anywhere. I also bought some 2x2 Instagram sleeves and two sets of filler cards: Inked Rose and Sheer Metallic (vellum).

The theme for my album is called You & I, and I made it to show my love for my hubby... <3 p="">Here are loads of pics for you:



First page has a vellum insert and behind it is a photo of our hands:


Then I filled it up with photos, quotes and some embies:



...and yes I blurred the journaling....






Here are some close-ups of some of the embies and layers:


I actually trimmed some of the frames from the Inked Rose pack to fit my photos better. The stickers are from Maggie Holmes and Snap. Wood veneers from Studio Calico and chipboard from Pink Paislee.
