'You are my Happy' for Papirdesign

Hi, I'm back to share a little something I made recently for Norwegian Papirdesign.
I have been a bit of a slacker during August and have not posted much here on my personal blog:-) .

I picked out an older photo of my youngest and wanted to make a page with fall feling to it. Hopefully we will still have some good Summer-days, but early mornings you can definitely feel a little nip in the air that tells us the seasons will change soon.

I have used a mix of older and newer collections here.
That is one of the many good things about Papirdesign; it all goes together so well :-)

I think you can see that I based my design on this lovely sketch from Cest Maqnifique.

I did not bother so very much that everything would be in the right position as I wanted a more 
carefree feel to the page. Although I did start out using a sketch.

A closer look:

Of course I had to use some of the gorgeous mini roses!!

For my title I used the lovely alphabetsickers in two different colours.

Apart from the roses and stickers I used mainly two sheets of papers and they are:

PD 10532 Treverk
PD12648 Sommerfugler

Klem/ Hugs,

'Time Stood Still' for Inkido (and two challenges) and info about the current theme at Paper Issues.

 Time for a new layout as part of the Inkido DT and also time overdue to share about the latest theme over at Paper Issues.

First of all, here is my very latest page using the Beautiful Memories collection.

 I started by layering two sheets of pp, one of them embellished with a border around the edges. 
After sewing  the pages together I added some gesso through a stencil. 

I actually followed TWO sketches to make this page,... yes I know it sounds crazy... 
But I had copied from 3 sketch-challenges that I wanted to play along with, and the two next to eachother looked strikingly similar.

The first one: Scrap & Music where you use the sketch and include a line from a specific lyric.
I did not read the rules very closely at first so I originally put another title on my page, but was able to change it for a line from the lyrics instead. :-)

The second one is by Ulrika aka *Lillblomman*, my DT friend from both Papirdesign and Inkido.

Can you see how similar they are..?

And here are some closeups:

The gorgeous bling swirl is actually a lesftover from one byPapirdesign that I already used on one of my PD lo's. And the gorgeous mini roses are from Papirdesign as well. Their flowers have a consistently high quality!

 As it was very sunny wnen I photographed my lo I think the colours look a bit faded. 
They are actually slightly more saturated IRL.

 I am also excited to share with you the fact that Becky Higgins and her PL is sponsoring the current theme over at Paper Issues.
Definitely something to feel happy and proud about!!
 She is giving away a Project Life Core Kit which would be so cool to win!! 
You can find all the details on the PI blog.
  There are also chances to win one of Becky's Project Life sample kits.

Gaze, my latest lo for Inkido.

Hi friends!
  Hi ,...long time no see,...!
Today I'm back to share a layout with you for Inkido and Ulrikas beautiful sketch challenge.
Most of the papers I used are from Inkido's  Beautiful Memories collection.
Here is the page I made:
And here are a couple of close ups for you:
That cute ruffled flower is by Inkido and come in a collection pack called Harmony Flowers (pink).
-I started with two sheets of paper, one forming the border around the dotted paper.
 -I added a layer of gesso. 
-When dry I sprayed some mist on and smeared it out with my fingers. 
-I used a stencil to get the dots.
-On top I placed a sheer layer of organza.
-All the layers were fastened using my sewing machine.
-Then it was time to add the 'crossed' element of the sketch and the matted photo on top.
-VOILA!! Time to embellish!
I would really love to see what you come up  with for the challenge.
This truly is a very inviting and easy to do shetch that I know you are going to love! 
Ulrika also has her own sketch challenge where she puts up a new sketch for us 
every month HERE
August Challenge
I promised I would share some of the photos from my trip and I will di that soon. 
I just haven't gotten round to editing them yet :-)

Flowers for Mum". A page for Inkido.

Hi my lovelies!
I discovered that I forgot about this lo with some cute photos of Beatrice taken a few years back.
I made it for the Inkido blog , but at the time I had so much  else going on that I just didn't find the right moment to post it.

So here it is:

These pictures are among my favourites and one of the best things about not scrapping chronologically is that I can pick whatever photo takes my fancy :-

I used a lot of embellishments from Inkido here, like the different kinds of flowers and the metal leaf. I especially love the larger red rose among these.

The *Beautiful memories* collection, and actually most of the Inkido collections include papers with pretty little butterflies that are so good for cutting out and using as decorations on your page. 
I decorated these blue ones with some Inkido bling. I layered my title by using two pieces 
of Inkido paper with pop dots between and some fabric alphas by Prima.

This is a pre-set post but  I will be back in a day or two to share some photos from my trip with you.
Hopefully there will be some good ones!!
