A new baby

Yes, well, not MY baby, but still worthy of a card, I thought. 🙂 The image is downloaded from the Internet, the sheet music bought from a market place in Rome, the lace is from stash and eveything is distressed and inked with distress inks.

Thanks for stopping by!

We’re having wonderful summer weather and it makes it hard to get much done, but I have managed to make a few things.

I turned these photos into sepia for a more vintage look and used sketch # 57 on Creative Scrappers for the design. The papers areBasic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. Stamps are from Prima, Making Memories and Stamperia. There is a coat of white acrylic paint and then Distress Crackle Paint in Aged Mahogany on the cardboard hearts. The lace is from my stash and I have hand stitched around the edges.


Here is a closer view of my hearts.


My husband’s nephew had a birthday yesterday and with him being a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan (something I totally have in common with him…) I thought he’d enjoy a themed card. So I spent some time on the Internet (as if I don’t do that enough as it is!) looking for images to print.


I have also used a frame from Kristine on all the images. The sentiment tag says Happy Birthday in Elvish (yes, I’m also terribly geeky…)  and it can be liftet up for an English version.

Well, that’s what I had to show today. Thank you for stopping by. Any comments are greatly appreciated!

Wow, it’s been a long time since I updated this blog! It’s not that I haven’t been busy with several projects, it’s rather that I haven’t uploaded the photos from the camera. Slacker! 🙂

Here is a card and a LO I did for a friend’s birthday last week. The card was inspired by SasSa who makes the most amazing cards. She in turn links to another blog where there is a video tutorial for this card, but I have followed SasSa’s lead on this.


This is a stamp from Stämpelboden and I coloured it with distress inks. I don’t have photos of the inside or back of the card, but for the inside I’ve used stamps from Prima to make a frame for the text.

Here’s a LO I did for my friend. I took this pic of her with her daughter a few weeks ago and I loved it so much I thought it would make a great scrapbook page.


All stamps are from Prima, the paper is Crate paper and sheet music is a vintage find at a market place in Rome.  The background paper is made with distress inks.

Thanks so much for looking!

I have been so bad about blogging lately, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! In fact, I have many projects that I’m working on simultaniously, but it is slow going getting them finished. I am making a set of 20 Christmas cards for a friend, a mini album for mom for Christmas, 3 different scrapbook LOs, 3 kiddie birthday cards, not to mention that I haven’t made our own Christmas cards yet- so yeah, I’m busy! 😀

I decided to take a break today and do something just for me, for fun. I haven’t done a Splitcoast sketch challenge in forever and this sketch from last week just called out to me! LOL! Here’s what I made.


Take care, everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

I made this layout as part of the Creative Techniques class and I have already given it away as a gift to a friend. This is her little girl, Angelica, and she is just so adorable, isn’t she? My kids love having her over for playdates and on this day we met in the park.

I have used the image transfer technique that I talked about in a previous post, inked it with distress inks, then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Love this technique and while it’s quite time consuming I think I will be using it a lot, since I love the vintage, distressed look I can create with this.

Thanks for looking!
