Scrap365 Blog Party!


The new issue of Scrap365 magazine is now on sale with more pages and projects than ever. To celebrate a fresh new look with more inspirational pages Scrap365 is hosting a huge blog party all week! There are fabulous giveaways up for grabs too. Party and hop all week and collect clues from the team to win a brilliant new Cricut Mini worth £129! Scroll down for full competition details below.


For the hop I made this layout abut our new elevator - sort of a new beginning. Our elevator was under a renovation at the end of last year. We live on the 7th floor, so it was quite exciting four weeks to climb the stairs with two kids. I wanted to document this everyday moment, too, for my daughters. 

The journaling is hidden inside that brown paper bag and it's written on a tag. On the background I stamped with embossing folders using Glimmer Mist. You could try with water reactive inks, too, but I found it much easier to use mists. I also made this little video about the technique.


Scrap365 juhlii uutta ulkoasuaan ja sivumääräänsä ja järjestää Blog Partyn, joka kestää viikon verran. Viikon aikana on mahdollisuus voittaa palkintoja ja pääpalkintona on Cricut Mini -laite! Osallistumisohjeet (englanniksi) löytyvät postauksen lopusta.

Blogihyppelyä varten tein leiskan hissiremontistamme ja pienen videon mistillä ja kohokuviointitaskulla leimaamisesta.

      Do you use a reader? You can add the blog by copy/pasting the address to the reader's "add" field. The same way you can add a blog to the blogger "reader". :)

    1. Kiitokset elina :) Kohta nelivuotias kiipesi ihailtavan innokkaasti ja hienosti - kaksivuotias keksi, että kun alkaa madella mahallaan ja nuolla portaita, nappaa äiti tai isi aika nopeasti syliin ja ei tarvitse itse kiivetä :D

      Tekniikka toimii myös vesireagoivilla musteilla, mutta muste itsessään on liian "kuiva" :)
