Don't Look at me...

like that... Layout made about my daughter giving me the look when she needs something from me ( mostly works ;-))

Usually my layouts are kinda flat, I have seen so many layouts online lately that have that nice 3d look that I had to give it a try. Here's a close up.

An other one made about Mei-Li's swim certificat it took her one and a half year to finally get her A certificat, but within six weeks she had B too! Last summer she has got to practice her swimming a lot and really enjoys it now. BTW this sketch comes from a blog that closed now, I thought I had put it in my favorites but cannot find it anymore, if you know where it comes from please let me know so I can give proper credit. **edited, I found the blog, such a shame they stopped, it's Mix it Up**

I am so much in love with these little AC owls, love to cut them out to use on cards and tags...

And been thinking for a while about starting an art journal, the cover is finished now, I have put it on my desk and will give it a start this weekend.

Our week has not been so good, a lot of sneezing and coughing going on... had some news to worry about too, hope next week will be better.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you soon!

Had a creative, busy weekend.

This weekend we decided to move my crafting supplies including desk back to the living room. Since we've been living in this house I had my craft space in the attic it seemed to have a lot of advantages first, like leaving your mess on the desk LOL, but after a while I noticed I didn't really like to go upstairs while the rest of the family was sitting in the living room in front of the TV.
So these last few evenings I have sitting behind my desk following some TV and creating these:

Somehow blogger wont allow me at this moment to place my pictures between the text so I'll do it like this...
A layout with some cute Sassafras papers about Mei-Li losing her first tooth back in 2007.
The cover of a mini album made with Hambly, a lovely pearl Prima swirl and glitter thickers from AC. The inside is not finished yet, show you as soon as it is.
Some felties I made using different chipboard shapes and a hambly rub-on as templates. Does anyone know if I am allowed to sell these? I know as far as copyright on these items is concerned that I can use them on my own projects, but would love to know if I can also sell them.
That's it for now, have a good week!

look at the birdy. Finally managed to make some pictures of Mei-Li without her posing for me, quess she thinks she is a model, giving me that fake smile when she sees me coming with the camera. Got the inspiration for this layout on the memorylane blog, challenge was to make an autumny layout, didn't make any "falling leaves" pictures yet so using this colorsheme was the best I could do. These papers have been in my stash forever, they are not the colors I reach for first, but I am quit happy with the result. An other little project I had fun creating, the deer is from one of those cheap silver sticker sheets I bought at Kruidvat, I put it on craftcardstock, and cut it out.
Feeling creative these days, there is more to come soon.

No, this was not a challenge on How much is too much, but hey, you've got to use some stash to buy some right?

This lo was made with some great sassafras papers from my first ever bought kit!

Blood Sweet and (almost) Tears...

This layout cost me... usually it takes me two to three hours to make a layout, but this one took me days. Everything I wanted to make did not seem to work, I wanted to make this on a sheet of craftcardstock only, and put some cute hambly white mod flower rubons between the picture and the overlays... but the rubons didn't stick, that is, some parts did, some did not, so I traced over the remains on felt and cut them out, the stemps of the flowers are sewed on. Then when finished layering on different cardstock I did not like the layout anymore, so I cut it out again. After hours of work this is the result... I kinda like it, only whish it didn't take me so much time.

I took today of (will only cook :-)) to scrap, so see ya soon!

Like I said in my previous post, I have some trouble scrapping at this moment, sketches do get me going . Saw the challenge on the OLW blog and loved the sketch and thought of this picture of dh and dd on our vacation in Spain right away. Sorry for the bright colors of the picture, I could not get it any better.
Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you soon!

Girls wanna have fun...

When everything else fails scrapping relaxes me. After a long periode of non scrapping, and finally having the time to clean up my scrapspace (show you some pictures soon) I found the peace to create again. Getting used to all this paper and glue I used this sketch from BG.

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you back soon!
