I made a layout this weekend using my fabbie August Cocoa Daisy kit. The photos are of my son visiting heaven, aka Lego corner at Toys R Us. He could spend hours and hours there, if only his mama would let him…
But I do think Lego is the best toy ever (alongside with the ball) and I’m happy he still enjoys his own collection and plays both on his own and with friends with it. Wonder how long it will last.
I used this fun sketch #97 from Lets Capture These Sketches:
Work is waiting. A lot of fun and not so fun things to do. Have a great day!!!
A good thing with a super rainy weekend is that one does not have to mow the lawn. More scrap time! Here is a card I did with my new fab Paris Nights Background from The Rubber Café. I’ve been dying to ink this one up since I got it a couple of weeks ago. Yummy!!!
Details: Papers – Panduro: Cardstock. Stamps – The Rubber Café: Paris Nights Background, Vintage Treasures, Fabulous Phrases. Ink – Archival Ink: Coffee. Distress ink: Broken China, Frayed Burlap. Decorations: brads, twine, heart charms, rhinestone.
I’m entering this in the Vertical Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Here is the inside:
Time to go to work. All the students arrive today… Big mess on the parking lot and an even bigger mess in the restaurant. Looking forward to it!!! :) :) :)
…what would that be??? I honestly didn’t have a clue, but sat down, made a card to try find out and this is how it came out.
Details: Stamps – Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps: Solid leaf ATC, Delicious Autumn, Build a Bird Clear Stamp Set, Heart Key Crown Clear Stamp Set. Dies – Prickley Pear Rubber Dies: Build a Bird Die, Heart Key Crown Die. Papers from Bazzill, Prima and Pink Paislee. Distress inks – Vintage Photo. Color Box – Moss Green, Pea green. Ribbon, lace, pearls and clear embossing powder.
I think the matting of the design elements on black cardstock is pretty much “me”. I often use my lovely Prickley Pear stamps (heat embossed!!!), stich on my cards and use a lot of distress ink. A clean design and ribbons and/or lace are often found on my cards. So I guess this might be my signature style. What do you think???? I’m entering this in CASE Study’s Signature challenge. It was a FUN one!!!
I used this sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday:
I have a second card using some more Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. On this one I played with mist and Copics.
Details: Stamps – Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps: Small Cheetah, Marvelous. Dies – Dies Direct Circles, Spellbinders Lacey Circles. Ink – Versa Fine Onyx Black, Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. Other - Maya Road metallic mist, mask, glossy accent, glitter pen.
Back to cleaning the house… Have a lovely Saturday!!!!
I got my August Cocoa Daisy kit almost two weeks ago, but I haven’t had time to dig into it until last night. And wow, it was a gooooood one! I love the combo of colors! So worth waiting for! :) I decided to go for the August Sketch Challenge over at the Cocoa Daisy Forum and make a layout for our Barcelona album (that is coming together nicely!!!).
My boy bought a fan from a street salesman and he loooved it. Not only did it give comfort in hot spaces (like in the metro stations!!!) and out in the sun, it was an excellent way to hinder dear mom to take photos… Gaahhhhh. Well, I could take photos of the fan…
It was a super fun page to make! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great remaining of this day!
Happy Wednesday! I woke up to a beautiful sunny day. The fall is almost here, really early, but I love these days with blue sky and high clear and a little cold air. So refreshing!

Stamps – HCPC 3410 Decorative Basket PreCut Set, HCPC 3412 Botanical Floral Basket PreCut Set, HCPC 3414 Belated Birthday Wishes PreCut Set, HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set.

I put the sentiment inside. It’s a good one!!!!
I’m entering this card in Papertake Weekly’s DIES to DIE for Challenge.
And talking about challenges – LESSology is looking for a DT member!!!
Have a beautiful day!!!!
Hi! What a weekend. It didn’t turn out quite as I had planned (which is a mild understatement). Let’s just say the crop was a no show from my side. :( On the other hand, I had some fun mileage with the best bunch of gals around! ♥♥♥ Thank you for everything!!!!
Here is my take on the Card Patterns sketch for this week. It’s one of my favorites so far. Totally fun and easy!
I’ve colored her with my Copics and I think I’m slowly starting to get the hang of it. So much FUN! Can you tell I got new tag dies…
You have to pop over to Card Patterns’ blog and check out the fab DT samples!!! And I hope you will play with us this week!!!
My second card is for this week’s CASE Study Challenge. The celebration continues and it’s time to CASE a favorite card by the blog owner herself– the amazing Chupa. You can find the card I chose HERE. I loved the blue color scheme and the stitching.
Here is a close up.
Oki… I have a lot of catching up to do. And tons of projects in my head I hope to find time to create. One or two of them at least. :) :) :) I hate it when time is stolen from me! Better stop whining and get going. Have a fab day!!!
Here is a new CAS layout with photos from beautiful Barcelona. We spent one day on and around La Rambla and one of the fun things there was the living statues. Totally AMAZING!
Now I’m off for a loooong day. First super important all day conference and THEN…. off to Järfälla/Stockholm and Scrap-Perra’s CROP tomorrow!!!! YAY!

We are having a beautiful Saturday here in Forshaga. Sun is shining and we’ve been to IKEA. Two good things!!!
It’s time for a new Card Patterns sketch!
I loved working with this one and tried going a little bit vintage with the fabbie Stella stamp.
Back to trying to get a sofa put together…
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
I’m so thankful for the fact it’s finally Friday afternoon. I’ve had a serious crafting itch the last couple of days and no time to do anything about it. But I did today - the boy is over with friends and dinner will be served later sooooo I headed to my craft table as soon as I quit work. YAY! :) :) :) And ended up making a CAS card for the combined CAS-ual Fridays and Clean and Simple Stamping challenge.
Details: Stamps – Heartfelt creations: HCPC 3408 Woodland Fern PreCut Set, HCPC 3323 Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set, HCPC 3321 Believe PreCut Set. Ink – Archival Ink: Coffee. Color Box: Bamboo, Moss Green. Distress ink: Broken China, Frayed Burlap. Other – Clear embossing powder, ribbon, pearl.

Happy Saturday! It’s time for a new fun sketch from Card Patterns! I looove this week’s sketch. So many possibilities, plus it’s like MADE for my favorite nesting die – Lacey Circles!!! :) :) :)
We also have a super duper fun sponsor this week – Tiffany Doodles!!!!
I got the Dancing Dress to play with. Isn’t it FAB!!!! So, here’s my card.
A dream in white… LOL! And you have to go check out the rest of the team’s creations. You find it HERE! Hope you’ll play with us this week!!!
In a couple of hours we will have our house filled with my favorite red heads and their lovely mom/wife. It will be one loud and fun ending of this week, I’ll tell you! :) :) :)
I have a green card for today’s Heartfelt Creations’ post. I love green! So fresh and fun.
And I simply ADORE this Tropical Floral Swirls PreCut Set. So beautiful and so fun to work with! Full instruction on this card can be found on The Heartfelt Creations Blog together with some amazing projects by the Design Team. There is a sneak peak of the next week’s new reveal too!!! You will loooove what is coming!!!
I used this fabbie sketch from Cute Card Thursday
And hey, something fun is coming our way….
Take care and have fun!
What a beautiful summer day we’ve had today! Hope the sun and warmth will stay until Thursday when we are going to a water amusement park with my brother and his family. FUN! (And much more so if it doesn’t rain!).
Today’s layout is about my summer reading. I’m such a junk reader at summers… Lots and lots of easy read fiction books in the Hammock. It’s a compensation for all the work related reading I do rest of the year. I think. :)
I had a lot of fun making this layout, misting, stamping and using super fun colors. All the papers and some of the embellies are from the June Cocoa Daisy kit. Here are a couple of close ups.
Lots of diecuts on this one. Circles and inverted scallop circles from Dies Direct, Super Cute Owls from Prickley Pear, Banners and Doily die from PTI and Heart from Provo Craft. I used this fab sketch from Sketch Support.
The back of the yellow striped paper on the layout was soooo fab and I got some pieces left so I had to use it for a card. I’m quite into Chocolate, but I’m trying to stay clear. Instead I’m feeding my surrounding… :)
I simply loooove Lindt’s dark chocolate with almonds. Hope my neighbor likes it too! Isn’t the sassy piece of patterned paper wonderful!?!. Bird and birdcage die are from Prickley Pear, the edge die is from Heartfelt Creations. Here is the inside.
Nothing fancy, but I like how it turned out clean and nice. I might stamp a sentiment too, but I couldn’t decide… LOL!
I made this for Tuesday Morning Sketches #105
I’m off to play The a-MAZE-ing labyrinth with my boy. Have a lovely evening!
