Some things must come to an end

Hi peeps! I have sad news today. One of my fav designers - Juliana Kneipp - has decided to step down from her designing and concentrate on her new career as a photographer. I wish her the best of luck on her new adventures - but I´ll be missing here wonderful stuff...

I´ve also decided to step down from the Allt om Scrap team due to some major changes that are happening over there. I wanna spend my time on creating and not so much on administration.

The GOOD news today is that I can share a new fab Halloween kit by Mari Koegelenberg and Sugarplum Paperie which is releasing today:


I got to admit I´m a sucker for Halloween kits (and Christmas kits for that matter) and I made this layout using the kit above:


Now I´m off to town to run some errands and do grocery shopping - it´s gonna be good when that´s finished.....

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

This past week I´ve been having issues with my back AND being sick with a flu so this is coming a bit later than I´d planned.

I totally missed showing you the fab Everyday Life - October bundle by Juno Designs:


Of course you can buy everything separately too if you want to. I made this layout using this and a digital stamp from Pysseldags:

Totally new FOR TODAY is the Splendid Autumn collection by Mari Koegelenberg:




They´re all on SALE right now so be sure to grab them now for a really good price! I made this layout today:

This Saturday I was at a big scrapbook meeting called Haboscrappen, but I was so tired after being sick so I didn´t get that much done and I also went home earlier than I´d planned. But I got some done:

A page for my Project Life album:

A matchbox and a candle:

A scrapbook layout:

....and a teeny card for a quicky challenge (made in about 20 min):

I´m planning on fixing it a little more since I´m not satisfied with it....

Weekend at Pysseldags

I´m lucky to be on the CT for the Swedish company Pysseldags and this past weekend the whole team had a meet-up home at the owner and we had such a great time! Everyone in the team had a little course about something - mine was mixed media - and we all got to try out each others way to scrap!

First out was Pernilla who also designs all the wonderful figure stamps at Pysseldags. She showed us how she paints with water colors and how to draw with ink and a steel pen. Everyone in the team got spoiled with an own one-of-a-kind hand painted image to color, but this little boy will turn up in the shop as a little angel so be sure to keep your eyes out for this little adorable fellow:


I´m gonna frame him and put him on a special place in my home!

Next was Anna and we got scrap "Clean and simple" using a template and a maximum of three embellishments besides a stamp. That turned out to be a real challenge but it was great fun! Here´s my card:


Please click HERE to get to my blog post at Pysseldags for full credits.

Now you have to wait to get to see the rest of the goodies we made...But I´ll be back later this week with other stuff!

Pocket Scrap Norway challenge, Sodalicious and Studio Calico

Surprise! Surprise! Here I am with a blog post and it´s not even Sunday!
First of all I wanna show you my Project Life page for week 40 that I did for a challenge over at Project Life Norway. You had to use washi, alpha and stickers AND the colors orange, yellow and brown. This sounded like a perfect way to start the month of October so I jumped ahead in my album and finished that spread first:


This might qualify as a hybrid project since I used a digital kit called Spooks by Deena Rutter (which is available over at Pixels & Co) for my title card and the journaling card. Do I have to tell you that is gorgeous? Besides that I used a lot of different stuff like alpha from Tim Holtz, stamps from Ali Edwards and Studio Calico, kraft paper, an old sticker by Elsie Flannigan, washitapes and fuzzy cut elements. The nice collage in the top right corner is made with the new Project Life app by Becky Higgins and then I added text with the Rhonna Farrer app.
It turned out pretty ok don´t you think?

****************************************
I hope you´re all in the mood for a lot of pics now since I got two happy parcels in the mail today. One from Sodalicious and one from Studio Calico.

This was the first time I ordered from Sodalicious - which is a Polish online scrap store. I´ve been lurking around there a lot drooling over all their gorgeous stuff and finally I got around to order something. Don´t you just love the feeling when open a package and it looks like this:



 Here´s what was inside:

What you might not see is that there are actually four different alphas in different colors and three different scrapbook papers in a wonderful thick quality. I fell in love with that wooden stamp that looks so old fashioned!

My parcel from Studio Calico was a BEAST since I ordered two add-ons and a stamp kit plus my ordinary PL monthly. So here are all the pics of my goodies:

The first look:

Chelsea add-on:


Notting Hill add-on:



I just can´t wait to get working with all these gorgeous new stuff that´s hoarding the craft table right now! I´m such a happy girl! <3 p="">
