Lo-Kit!

Today I've made 24 Lo-kits for SteinkjerScreppa 2016!! Different colors, themes, styles and everything. Some are very detailed and has a lot of stash in them, other are simple and might need some more stuff when I start working on them. But all on all they are great and I know I have many hours of creative goodness in front of me. Of cours I'm still bringing some more pictures that I want to scrap, because suddenly I get all inspired and just have to try something else. You never know when you're in a room with 60 other creative ladies for a weekend. IMG_7976 IMG_7980 IMG_7984 I already had 24 from before as well, so now I have MORE then enough to dig into at SteinkjerScreppa. I really need to start doing more LO's at home too, since I mostly do cards at home. Can't wait to show of all the finished LO's I will have after my scrapbook weekend ♥

Cheap Canvas!

If you like to play around on Canvas but don't feel like you can afford to buy expensive ones just for trying out new techniques and seeing how things look, I would recommend $Dollar Store in Östersund (or anywhere else you can find it). These may not be good quality, and I will absolutely put down some gesso on them as a base first, but they are cheap enough for me not to be worried about ruining it or making big mistakes.

Here I have 1 30x30cm (black), 2 21x30cm (white), 4 20x20cm (2 white and 2 blacks) and 3 12x18cm (white).

Here I only have two sizes, 2 in 40x40cm (white) and 3 40x60cm (1 black and 2 white)

For all 15 canvases I only paid 250 Swedish Kroner. (aprox 30 US$). So instead of getting 4-5 canvases for that price, I got 15. So now I can play and splash all the paint and glue on stash that I want without thinking that I'm wasting money if I'm not pleased with it.

Late Birthdaygift

Made this beautiful album and easter egg for my best friend and Emily's "aunt" Erle. She deserves something special and handmade from the heart. ♥ We have known each other since we were born, neighbors forever and went to the same class for 9 years. Always fun, weird and up for anything. Creative and awesome!
Love you sweetie ♥

Love you sweetie ♥

Here is some more pictures of the gift.

Easter Eggs for the Kids

This year I figured out the kids needed new eggs for Easter, the ones they got a few years back is getting a bit old and to small, need more candy!! Hehe. Who doesn't like candy, and the more the merrier. All of them are different but with hint of yellow, and they all have zippers on them. Other then that Sebastian got a more scary egg with skull, chain and cogs, while Pia and Emily get eggs with flowers and a butterfly. The letters I've used metal tape in the diecut machine. They are all painted with Distress Paints, And the pink and purple eggs have Dylusion Mica Spray om them. Aswell as butterflies made with Tim Holtz thinlits dies and colored with Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals. I have also entered these eggs in Rangers Easter Egg challenge at Ranger Ink blog. Here is more photos.

Dream – Wish – Love

This canvas has been done for a while now, just forgot to publish it. Colorful and playful just like me 🙂
  1. The embellishments are embossed with Lindys Stamp Gang embossingpowder from the Drop Dead Diva set. And I've used Tim Holtz stamps on the fabric that has been glued on the canvas. And the "Love", "Wish" and "Dream" is also Tim Holtz stamps. The yellow circles is painted with Distress Paints.

Clean and Simple

This card is super simple, still elegant and sweet. Made with Tim Holtz Stamps and a die from Papirdesign, and two colors of Bazzil. No flowers, bling and stash do distract from the simplicity. IMG_7873

Bikuben ♥

I do love myself some scrap shopping ♥ This time it was dies, stamps, Distress Inks and Paints, alcohol ink, papers, acrylic paint, tags, stamp pads and some double sided tape refills. The best packages ever is the one that comes from Bikuben, cause it always makes me so creative and I just wanna play with everything. Here is more close-ups.
