Lay-out in pink and brown

Good evening!

I have had a lot of things going on lately. First of all there was some trouble with my application to a course at the University. It looked really bad for some time and it seemed like I wasn't supposed to get in... But I did eventually (thank God for that!).

The past month I've had quite some work to to at school and upon that I've also worked at the gasstation a bit. I've also spent time with my two best girls down in the big city, which was wonderful.

Now I have a recently made lay-out for you guys!




The picture represent all of the girls in my class from compulsury school (in Sweden it's from age 7-16). We were quite a team and we went through the day with mixed emotions.

This piece is a huge mixture of everything: cardstock, DP, Magnolia swirl, pink ribbon, pearl string, flowers from Prima, leaf die, text paper, pasteboard, bling swirls, pins, thinner string etc. Because of that it's hard to remember all of the stores. But some of them are: scrapbooking4you.se, brunkullan.se, wildorchidcrafts.com.

Saw I could fit this piece in some challenges:
Nettantrollet - sketch
CCT - tree/leaves (challenge 186)
Totally Gorjuss - bingo (challenge 102) in my case: flowers, swirls, bling

Hope you've found some inspiration!

Birthday Boy Card

Hello!

All summer work days are now over and the test has been made again (hopefully I'll pass this time!). At this point life couldn't be better!

With a wonderful season ahead I've scheduled some smaller things to look forward. I'm planning to get my hair done, have a relaxing time at the local spa together with my lovley mum and visit Stockholm for a weekend. My mum and I are also planning a trip to IKEA, but we haven't set a date for that yet.

With a new season ahead I hope to be able to craft more than I've done this summer. It has been a lot of workhours. But with them all gone and with a cosy and craftfriendly fall coming up I think that will easily be solved :)

I need more Birthday Boy Cards to my collection, so I won't need to do one within a few minutes every time. I'll start that collection with this card:


And since I've already have done this piece I might as well join some challenges:
SimonSays - sketch
CharismaCards - glitter it
C4C - male themed cards #C4C102
ThePoodlesParlour - anything goes

Hope you've found some inspiration!

Mickey Mouse box

Hello everyone!

Five days of work has now been finished. Just seven days left until a break.

This week I've made a box and I actually was going to put out this piece sooner, but the days just passes by so quickly.

Anyway, the piece combines craft and study perfectly! The idea came to me when I was sitting by my study desk with all my paper spread around me. The flashcards, which I use when I'm testing myself, fits perfectly in this box and now it isn't a chaos with paper and other stuff anymore! :)

And since I love, love, LOVE Disney the choise of paper wasn't particularly hard... :)




And do you know where I can buy more Disney-papers I would be very thankful :)

Hope you've found some inspiration!

Have a great weekend!

Lay-out

Hello everyone!

Hope you all have had a great summer! I have :) (and I know, hopefully we'll have several wonderful summerdays to go) I've traveled around 6000 kilometers by car, enjoyed the warm climate (I really can't complain about how the wheater has been, because it has been great!), worked a lot, caught up with some friends and spent time with my boyfriend and my family.

And after a while not knowing how my fall would look like I finally now know that I will both study and work. It really feels faboulus and I'm amazingly reliefed, thank you very much!

And since I'm alredy here I might as well give you some inspiration. This time I've made a Lay-out of some summerphotos I found.


Hope you all have found some inspiration!

Now it's time for me to go to bed (it's necessary since my days starts at 5.30 am this week).

White bracelet

Hello eveyone!
Time definitely flies by. I can't beleive that I haven't written anything within a month!

So what have I been doing latley? Well, to mention something I've made some changes where I work for some extra money - for instance have I resigned the contract and swiched place. I've also studied a lot since I wrote the final test for this term the 3rd of June. *Hope I made it* :)

And the last days we have had great weather with approx. 30 degrees IN THE SHADOW (I just love this time of the year!)

Enough about what I've been up to... Now it's time to fill my blog with what it's supposed to be filled with - INSPIRATION!


glassbeads - pearlized.se
elastic and transparent beadthread - pagoni.se

This is my latest creation and it shines beautifully against that lightly tanned skin. Or mix them up with more and/or other bracelets.

Hope you've found some inspiration!

IKEA and silver owls

Hello!

I spent yesterday with my mum and sister and we all found something in the big department store down in Sundsvall - both at the famous IKEA and some clothes in the smaller stores around. Thank you, the day was perfect (well apart from the lousy weather we've had).

Now it's time to show you my latest creation, which I actually made a couple of days ago. But anyway... It's a necklace in silver with a cute owl and it sparkles fantastically in the sun.

Bracelet of leather

Hello!

I received some goodies last week in form of ribbons of leather in different sizes, ribbons of suede, magnetic lockers and beads of silver. My orders were made at Barapyssel and Pagoni (two big pearl shops here in Sweden). On their web sites it says that they deliver to countries outside of Sweden, though I'm not sure if it includes all countries. However they have the most gorgeous things! :)

This weekend I made this lovely bracelet of leather. I've worn it every day - I love it! The inspiration comes from Bara pyssel's blog.

WOYWW

Hello!
Now it's time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and in my case it's pearls.


I've always wanted a pearl necklace, which is a fabulous accessory because it goes with everything you wear. It's so classic, so beautiful, so practical - and it never gets out of date.

But how fun is it, as a creator, to just put them one after one. So, I made it with a twist - a mixture of large and small pearls and I also decided to make the necklace longer, much longer.


I sealed it with a magnetic locker and hope it'll last forever.

Hope you've found some inspiration and thank you for stopping by!

New distress inks

Hello!

A while ago I received six new colors of distress inks into my collection. Today I've had the pleasure to organize them.

The six to the left are my new darlings.


And now I'm waiting for more of these bottles from Bunnyzoe's craft. Hopefully they'll be at my door by this week.

Thank you for stopping by.
