Fruity journal - Prima Marketing Facebook live


Grab your scissors and juicy colors – here comes Fruit Paradise! For this journal page I did a lot of fussy cutting to create a rich looking wreath of blooms and flowers across the page. To match the background to the juicy colors of the fruits I used several acrylic paints and a couple of inks, too. The page is really easy peasy lemon squeezy only needing some patience with scissors! 


The page is something that I'm doing next Tuesday live at Prima Marketing Facebook page. This time I'm using my phone to film so hopefully the quality of the show will be better where the picture quality is concerned! Please stop by around 2 pm ET or 7 pm CET to say hi! Underneath you can see a picture of the materials I'm using as well as a written list. 

Hope to see you there! Thank you for stopping by today!

Curiosity keeps you reading - Craft Stamper


Heippa! I promised yesterday to share another project I made for the Craft Stamper March 2019 issue for the Masterclass article today. The first project was a little journal and the other one I made is this bookmark. As you can see, and what goes to the Masterclass idea, I've used the same techniques and colors, but in a different make.


I used my favorite color palette in the makes and layered papers made with different techniques on top of each other in this bookmark. You can see the both projects underneath if you want to compare. I find magazine work really fun and inspiring and I hope that you like those, too! 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Spring magic - Craft Stamper


Moikka! Today I'm sharing the first project I did for a Masterclass article in Craft Stamper's March  2019 issue. I'm sharing the second project tomorrow. The topic of this Masterclass was watercolors. I didn't go with traditional techniques, though, but tried to go outside of the box and spark ideas instead. You can see the five different techniques I came up with only in the magazine. If you don't already have an issue, here's a link to purchase it (link). And here's a link where you can read about the newest issue of the magazine (link).


This first project is a little mini book / journal I did using the papers I made using the techniques. The stamps are by AALL & Create and the watercolors by Prima Marketing. I used my all time favorite set, "Tropicals", together with the "Classic" set to get those beautiful blues and greens. 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Tea, music and a good book - Sizzix


Hi there! How are you today? I hope the weather is as fine there as in here! Feels like summer today, but the forecasts have been threatening with colder days, storms and hails. But no matter the weather, some things always make me happy. Naturally there's my family, but also small things like the title says - tea, music and a good book.

In the beginning of this year I started cutting back some teams. Or rather, it was during previous autumn as I wanted each team to have ample time to react with the announcement. This was for no other reason than the fact that a day only has 24 hours and I had been taking extra hours for crafting and managing all the posts from my sleep for so long. After cutting a few teams, I now have some "free" time as well, which I usually use for reading! I'm so happy to have a stack of books by my night table again! We, meaning my husband and I, read to our kids each day, but I was yearning to read something else and in my own phase. It's such a pleasure. 


For this layout the inspiration came from tea in a way. I used tea bag as one of the materials and took the color palette from black tea. Music isn't visible in the page, but I did include some book page pieces to the make as well. They are from an old "who's who" book, though, which might not be such a fascinating read. 

I recorded a video while working with the page. Underneath you can see it and how I went about the process! 


As you could see from the video, I used a bunch of lovely dies in the page. That lace die is one of my new favorites! You can see the new selection of dies from Sizzix home page (link). Here's also a direct link to the new selection (link)

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a great Wednesday!

Ladybird card - GDT AALL & Create


Sweet Sunday! I'm sharing another guest project for AALL & Create today. It's a card with a resist effect and a book paper flower.

I've been meaning to do a flower like this for a while now using #133 Makers Marks. I stamped the flower on top of an old book page for extra interest. For the background I used green cardstock, clear embossing powder and #165 Numbered Pencils stamp. I decorated the card using a ladybug done using #161 Ladybug.


Above you can see a "work in progress" photo. There's all the elements of the card but loose from each other. I also toned the green and the red down using brown ink as the contrast seemed too much with the vibrant colors. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to the new week!

Paris - GDT AALL & Create


Salut! Over the next three days I'll share some guest projects for AALL & Create. Next two posts have some fair samples and then on Sunday a new project with the new release. Well, all of them are with new release.

Like I wrote there, this card was something I created as a sample for the Frankfurt fair - Creative World. I added some stencil work to the background and then added Eiffel Tower on top. There's also some grungy textures in the background.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great start to the weekend!
