2 new LOs

The LO at the top is for my BOM. I participate in a challenge at Dreampapers. Every 2nd week we get a new challenge - all challenges is BOM challenges. This time we had to create a LO showing something you like about yourself (some physical things). I chose my hair! :) I've always had a diffucult hair ... but now it seems like I am used to it and have found the haircut which suits me and my temper!
I was fun making this LO! And was fun to play a little with my pens. :)
The other LO is about my oldest son. (photos taken last Summer). I made this one for a challenge at SWEscrapbook. The challenge was to use black/red/white colors. Very cool colors I think! And this is my result. I didn't finish it in time, so I never sent it in - but the LO is done and I'm satisfied with it. The title "nyder livet" means "enjoying life".
Thanks for stopping by!

I am not at all a cardmaker! But yesterday we went to my nephew's 1 year birthday party and I so wanted to create a card for him ... and here's the result. An easy one with QK balloons, Junkitz paper, MM alphas, scrappers floss, Cats eye pigment brush pad, yellow Prima flower, MM brad and a white gelly roll pen. :)

Actually it was fun creating it. :) And this card i the 2nd card I have made in my whole life.

A beautiful place

I wanted to scrap today, but I didn't know which photos to choose. By the time I saw these beautiful photos from our vacation in south of France last Summer, I wanted to make a LO with those photos.

The church on the photos can be found in a little village called Sospel. Oh my!! What a beautiful scenery. The whole town was soooo beautiful and had flowers everywhere. It is placed in between a lot of high mountains and the whole place was just breathtaking.

I want to visit again some day! :)

Just being me...

This LO is made for a challenge at Dreampapers - a Danish scrapping site. The challenge will run for some weeks and in the end we all have made a great BOM album. It's a lot of fun.

This first BOM LO is the intropage. Next challenge is to scrap the bodypart you like the most from your own body! :D ... like your hair, your hands, your legs... whatever! I look so much forward to see the different LOs for this one! :D

On the "Just being me" LO I have used black Bazzill, a piece of SassafrasLass and a piece of Scrapworks. A lot of K & Company flowers. The rubon letters for the title is Heidi Swap. The big monogram "C" is K & Company. For the white journaling I've used a Gelly Roll Sakura pen.

I had a lot of fun....

... creating this LO. I have used a lot of different stuff. The journalingbox is from a digital kit made by Dawn Inskip. Letterstickers are American Crafts. Again I have used foamstamps for the blue flowers and painted them with MM paint "cornflower". Butterflies are from sassafrasLass. Brads are Junkitz.

The photos shows my oldest son eating lunch a Summerday in 2003. :0)

Foamstamps are great! I haven't been using my foamstamps that often actually. Yesterday I wanted to make a LO with this photo of my oldest son who eats icecream a hot Summer day. I wanted to use my flower foamstamps and here is the result. The big flowerstamp is from a hobby store here i Denmark called Panduro. The small flowerstamp is from MM.

I used MM paint "Evergreen" and I cut with a scissor. I wanted to leave a tiny white border around the flowers as it gives a great effect. The middle of the big flowers is cut out from a Dream Street Paper. Red and blue brads. The alphabet is Thickers from American Crafts. QK heart and QK leaves and a tiny bit of Scrappers floss (Karen Foster).

The textbox is made by Dawn Inskip and is from one of her digital kits. I downloaded the kit and made a print of it. Like I said in my previous post: It's great that you can combine digi-goodies with paper-goodies!! :D

Fournd a great website....

called A spoonful of Sprinkles. Dawn Inskip creates BEAUTIFUL digital kits there. I am not a digital scrapper, but some digital goodies can be used for paper scrapping as well.
I used a digital item for this LO. The black border around the photo of my youngest son. I think it's cool that you can mix digital scrapping with paper scrapping! :0)
I found the black frame at A spoonful of Sprinkles and I just LOVE IT!
The flowers I have created myself. I have seen Lisette (aka lam) is making flowers herself - so I thought I would give it a try as well.
On this LO I also have used watercolors (for the flowers and the swirls) and MM paint "Cornflower" for the blue circle and the textbox.
It was fun making this LO and I felt quite creative while I created it.
Thanks for inspiration Dawn and Lisette. :0)
