New collection *Forventning* from Papirdesign layout 'Family'

Idag har jeg laget en side i nydelige lilla toner med de nye arkene fra serien 'Forventning'.
De droppet ned i postkassa igår og jeg var jo selvfölgelig nödt til å 'pröve dem' med det samme. 
-Det blir kanskje litt som når mannen får en ny bil eller noe sånt.
-Og en flott måte å feire bursdagen min i dag!!
I hvert fall er det sånn att duften av nye papir er noe helt spesiellt :-)

Today I want to share a page with you that I made with the fresh from the printers new 
collection 'Forventning' I picked some papers in a fave shad of purple/lilac.
I received these yesterday and just 'had to' use them right away. 
What a great way to celebrate my birthday today!
There is something very attractive about the smell of newly printed papers.

Dessuten fikk jeg rotet litt blandt blomsterstäsjen og fant mye fint som passet.
Men det er jo ikke så rart med det enorme utvalget fra Papirdesign!!

I even dived into my flowerstash and came up with some beauties. papirdesign really 
has a large selection!!

Ett chipboardord  fikk utgjöre tittel for min layout og jeg synes at den passer veldig godt til både blomster og herlige papir.

The chipboard title is also by Papirdesign and I love the font that goes so well with the 
feel of my page.

 Jeg brukte ett lilla flöyelsband fra en Papirdesign båndpakke.

I used a piece of lilac ribbon also by papirdesign for my bow.

Nytt for denne sesongen er att papirdesign også har kakeservietter, som også kalles doilies.
De finns i to störrelser og den lille pakken har ti styker hver av fargene rosa, röd og hvit.
Den större störrelsen finns med 30 herlige hvite doilies.

New this season from Papirdesign is also that they have doilies. They are available in two sizes and each have ten pieces each of the colours pink, red and white.

Jeg tar med ett par extra blder på de fine dekorasjonene her.

A couple more close ups of my embellishments.

For SATW using Les papiers de Pandore collection 'Crochetin'.

Hello and happy Sunday to you! Hopefully your week end has been a good one so far!!

Here is a page I made as part of the DT for Les Papiers de Pandore, my fave French manufacturer.
It is kind of an old fashioned page using different paper techniques and not so much the different mists that are on almost all the scrapbook pages at the moment. I LOVE to use those too, but today I wanted to show off the beautiful products I am lucky  to work with!

Here are some closeups of the details on my page:

I was inspired by the February mood board at Scrap Around the World.
I loved the yummy layers of beautiful colours and the pink and yellow tones.
I wanted to create something frilly and feminine to go with it.

You still have a few days to enter before they close this months challenge. 
Why not give it a go...? You can read all about it on the blog HERE.

Thanks for dropping by.

A couple of Inkido shares.....

This is was the page that I made for my recent post on the Inkido blog. I enjoyed myself mixing a few different collections, old and new. I find they mix well as the designs  are mostly feminine and the colours mostly matcth beautifully.

Here are some photos with closeups of my details.

 I cut out the sweet vintage picture from one of the patterned papers. And I used my Silhouette 
Cameo for the lamp-post diecut.

We also had a Love/Valentines feature on the Inkido blog a couple of days agoand my contribution was a set of mixed media tags:

 I used gesso, ink and stamping to add texture to my tags. 
I painted some of the stamped butterflies with 'Silks' colour Pink Grapefruit.

 And here are a few shots of the tags individually.

I am so happy to see you today and I hope you're having a have a lovely day!! <3

Scraps of Elegance February kit *Love Always*.

Hi friends!!
Today I want to share the first page of the month using the new and fabulous kit from Scraps of Elegance.I love the rich reds and pinks of the kit and it is lovely to create with!

Here is just a picture to show you what a beautiful kit this is. For my page I also used this months floral add-on.

 This is such a great kit for making Valentines projects and many more too of course.

 This is a mix of Autentique 'Smitten' and MME Lost & Found Record it! Collection: Heirloom

This is a fairly clean and simple page for me. 
I just felt like letting the beautiful papers and embellishments shine in their own right.

The red flowers are by Kaisercraft , the white and red ones are by Prima. The stickers are from the MME sticker sheet in the embellishment add-on. The title 'Adore you' was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

Finally I would like to share with you that Scraps of Elegance kits now also has a Creativity add-on.
A quick and easy way to get all those fabulous mixed media items in one place.

Thanks for dropping in for a visit! I hope you liked my latest creation!

'My Happy Girl' for Papirdesign

Hello friends!
Today I have enjoyed myself playing with all the gorgeous flowers from Papirdesign. Every time I pull out my flowerstash I am struck by the large variety they have in flowers,peonies,
miniroses etc.(...as well :-))

Last weekend I attended a crop nearby. That in itself is a rare event as I don't get much done at crops and normally just end up moving my stuff around. This time was ok, except for me forgetting all my photos at home... At least I prepared a few pages and could add pictures and embellishments to them later. That always is a great beginning! And I got to catch up a little with some nice ladies!

Hei hei!
Her har jeg kost meg med en masse herlige peoner og mini roser.
Jeg blir like 'sjokkert' hver gang over det store utvalget somm Papirdesign har når det gjelder blomster (også ;-D ).

I helgen var jeg for uvanlighetens skyld på et scrappetreff og koste meg med å lage denne og ett par sider til. Jeg var som vanlig  litt glömsk og fikk ikke med meg noen foto, så det fikk bli bilder og pynt når jeg kom hjem. Men deilig å ha grunnarbeidet ferdig! 
Dessuten kul å treffe noen lite herlige scrappejenter!!

The lilac coloured pearls were actually a part of the large swirl. 
They became 'leftovers' when I cut a piece off one of them.

 De lilla perlene her er egentlig en del av perleswirlen .
Jeg ville ha en litt mindre bit og da ble det litt rester :-)

I just love the alphabetstickers from Papirdesign! 
They come in so many different colours and have all the special letters that us Scandinavians  need !!

 Jeg bare elsker alfabetene til Papirdesign! 
De finns i sååå mange farger dessuten. Det aller beste er at alle skandinaviske bokstaver er der!

Just look how beautiful the new peonies look. They have such a pretty rounded shape.
 Se bare så nydelig de nye peonene er. Den runde formen på blomsten er så fin!

That's all from me today. Enjoy the cold and remember to wrap up warm :-)

Det var alt fra meg idag. Kos dere i vinterväret!

I used these Papirdesign products: Jeg har brukt :
Julehilsen : Bark
Julehilsen : Gledelig Jul
Geranium rosa pakke
Peoner rosa og lilla pakke
diverse miniroser
Perleswirl vit/lilla
alfabet mörkrosa
grönne blad

Last pages from Scraps of Elegance Jan kit using Kaisercraft 'Key to my Heart' and Heidi Swapp 'Mixed Company'

 Today I want to share my two last pages made wih the Scraps of Elegance January kit 'Delightful'. The kit is as always jam packed with papers and pretty embellishments and a true 'delight' to work with apart from the suitable name .-)
For the first page I used papers from the  Heidi Swapp collection .......
I cut away paper inside the 'diamonds' to make the design more interesting and individual.
I love how it turned out, and the stitching as well.

I fussy cut flowers from another patterned paper and layered them as an additional embellishment. 
I also added a couple of faux tags to get a more layered look, and as a mat for my title.

 I had some geraniums in my stash, but they were the wrong colour. I used the paint from the colour add on (Silks; Pink Grapefruit) to change the look of the flower so it would go with my design.

Some of the flowers here (mini roses) are from the Norwegian manufacturer Papirdesign.
I added a little gesso here and there for a more shabby 'aged' look.

This second page was done after the monthly sketch at SOE and I used one half of two different Kaisercraft papers and some elements from the sticker sheet.

I used some of the solid papers from the cardstock add on. 
I love the look of my punched holes as part of the sketch design. So simplistic.

I cut off part of the light blue journaling spot as I felt it was too large for me and added the 
border piece back on so it would not show :-)

My page is quite simple, but in real life there are a few more touches to it. For example I used 
pop dots to raise some page elements to make it more interesting. I backed a couple of 
the stickers with cardstock to make them stand out.

The pretty ice blue pearl brads are also in the lovely 'Delightful' January kit at Scraps of Elegance. 
Yesterday the February kit was revealed at the SOE blog, and HERE is the link.
Hurry up if you would like to buy the kit because the kit and add ons are selling out  
REALLY fast!!

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave. 
I so love reading them!!
