Butterfly love - Prima Marketing


Hello there! Here's a little something I did for Creativation! It's the first project I'm sharing that traveled across the pond. It was my designer piece for a collection of butterflies.

There's a lot of oldies but goodies in it but also something new - that is a couple colors from the new Metalliques! I just love the new colors! There’s gorgeous greens and purples, but I guess my favorite one is the Royal Blue. Now, that’s a fantastic blue color! 

I used also Mechanicals, black gesso, 3D Gel and beads in my project. I just love how the colors pop from the black background and how the tiny beads bring that little extra shine and texture.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful day!

...and you will remember that


Hiya all! How's your day been so far? Good, I hope! This page is a workshop sample project from a year back or maybe even more! I did it for the workshops in Sweden, for the "Secret for you to hear" workshop with Opal Magic, black gesso and washi tape flowers. 


The page itself is about a gorgeous gate we saw in Berlin when visiting the Museum Island. I guess it had been once the actual gate to one of the museums but was now displayed in the foyer of one of the buildings. Absolutely stunning workmanship and art! And the whole thing was huge so I can only imagine how much time had gotten into the making of the beauty and also how much it must weigh. 

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

Hello weekend - Prima Marketing


Hello and happy Sunday! I'm hoping I have been able to add some photos to my Instagram of the Prima booth and Creativation crafts! This card is done with one of the new collections, Amelia Rose. If you haven't seen anything in Instagram, please visit Prima's blog as the sneaks and reveals are in full throttle there! Here's the link (link)!

I really think that the color palette of Amelia Rose is great! There’s tea colored browns (you can't get wrong with those, right?), aged dusty pink, gold and black to heighten the shine of the gold and the colors! In this card I used all of those colors and then some. 

The background pattern is created using the new Paper Texture Paste which is by far my favorite of the texture pastes in Finnabair line! I just love the texture it creates!

Wishing you a sweet start to the new week! Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep the fire burning - Mixed Up magazine


Hello and sweet Saturday! How's your weekend been so far? Creative, I hope! Here's  canvas I created for the October / November issue of Mixed Up magazine. The article was titled "The Fire Inside" and it held a step by step tutorial for this canvas. 

The idea for the canvas came partly from this earlier project (link), a journal I created for the bass player of Turisas. I fell in love with the look of the soda can pulls added side by side so I wanted to have another go with that. Here they make up the background from which the main composition rises from. 

Thank you so much for your visit today! Have an awesome weekend!

Big kid - Creative Inspiration Magazine


Fri-yay! Isn't it wonderful it's Friday? Do you have any plans for the weekend? Crafty time ahead, perhaps? I bet I'll have some crafty times ahead - if you want to know more, please see the Instagram as I try to add a picture or two there! 


This page is about weekend activity of other sort - goofing with kids! There's me and my daughters in the photo playing Twister they just got as a Christmas present. The title, "big kid" refers to me as I sometimes act like a big kid. I can act as a teenager, too. At least according to my friend that side of me shows when I'm on a heavy metal gig. 

The page is done for an issue of Creative Inspiration magazine quite some time ago. The color theme was black and white plus one. In this page I mixed in some blue. The papers are mainly from 7 Dots Studio. The mediums used in the background are gesso, mist and inks. 

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

Dreaming of flowers - Sizzix


I love the increasing light! There's still not a lot of it as the day is shorter than 7 hours long here in Finland, but it's getting better! After the darkness the light even brighter! As I'm kind of in a spring mood already, I created this spring canvas with turquoises and greens. It's made as a Sizzix influencer.


I created the flowers using the "Wild Layered Flower" die for the blooms in the piece. I cut several flowers and then layered them on top of each other. I also used the "Scroll" die two ways in the canvas. First I cut the leaf shapes out of cardboard and then used the cardboard piece as a stencil to apply some Modeling Paste into my canvas. The leaf chippies I used as decorations in the canvas itself. 

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

With all my heart card - Wow Embossing Powder


Hello there and sweet day! Here's a little something I created for Wow Embossing Powder - a heart shaped card. Love is in the air as Valentines Day closes in, but on the other hand, there's always a good day to spread some love! Don't you think that too? 

I have to confess something. Before my two girls I disliked pink. Even as a child I wanted to have the blue versions of everything as in my youth it seemed that everything came in either pink or blue. I can even remember having an argument with my mom about a jacket she was buying to me as she suggested this pale pink, like a cotton candy color and I insisted of having the jeans blue one. 


So yes, pink has never been my favorite. Even when my girls were small, they were rather clothed in blue than pink - and I heard quite a few times what lovely little boy I had. But when my older one turned three, everything changed. She insisted on having everything in pink and in glitter. So I just had to learn to live with it. And slowly I started first to endure pink and then even to love it. So nowadays you'll see quite a lot of pink in my crafts! Blue is still my favorite, by far. 

But when it comes to hearts and Valentines, there's only one color to use and that's the once dreaded pink! If you wish to see how the card was made, please visit the Wow blog for a step by step (link)


One more time, the finished pink card with the sparkling and golden touches! A great little something to be given to a loved one with a box of chocolates or a nice bunch of flowers! 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope the card inspires you! Lots of love!
