Around here

Around here: I got the prettiest knitted gift ever from a friend in Finland. I was so suprised and it was an awesome way to start of an otherwise normal grey week! 


Around here: we had our last snow at beginning of the week. Well we are hoping it's the last snow ;)


Around here: I have been super tired and feeling blue. It's so hard getting up from that place right now. Crafts, coffee and hugs help. 


Around here: we had great weather the last days of the week. We sat outside in the sun on Thursday and Sally was basking in the sun with us.


Around here: This happened today. For the last time ever I cut the old flowers in my garden. It's crazy how much I have loved this garden and how sad I am to leave it behind. Don't get me wrong, I am very excited to start over with my love and am looking forward to move in to the new place. But man, all the emotions are killing me.


Around here: we have taken a big decision to postpon our wedding. With the house going on the market, sorting through years of stuff and other blah stuff we just wasn't up for planning what we wanted to be the happiest days of our lifes. It's all ok though, we still are madly in love and very content :)

WCS | March gallery

There is a new lovely gallery over at Write Click Scrapbook today. Our theme this month is favorite springs. 


I have been living in the same house since 2003 and we have recently decided to move. I will however always look for the snowdrops outside that house in the spring. 

Spring on over (get it?!) and check out the gallery! And be sure to check at the site all month as we share all kinds of favorites!

Re-Scrap March inspiration pages.


A new month means new inspiration pages for the 3 layouts I am making (atleast) this month! 

This one above has a great space for journaling and I really do have to get better at adding in more words on my pages!


I love how I used the tags in this page! More tags on layouts!


This is one of my favorite designs. It is super easy to use for a number of pages; just change up the colors, use one of the photo spaces for journaling...

I am excited to start another month of this project!

_______________________________________

the idea: this is a project i have wanted to do for a long time. i sometime have troubles with design on my scrapbook pages. well, what troubles me is re-newing myself. i want to try new things, but i 
don´t want to make pages that are not me. and i have done pages i really love, so i thought i´d make it a priority to choose 3 old layouts every month of the year and use them as inspiration for new pages. i mean, i am not re-scrapping the event or page, i am using the entire page and/or some elements of it to use as inspiration. i will share which 3 old layouts i am working with sometime the first week of the month. maybe you could draw some inspiration from them too?!

Re-Scrap 2015 | February pages

February is almost done you guys! I´ve said it before; after January is over the year just runs by!
I am here today with my finished pages for Re-Scrap February. As usual first I show the older layout that I used as inspiration and then the new one.


Older page.


Sometimes the layouts are almost an exact life, but other times I am inspired by a small detail for example. This time I went with the diagonal theme and used washi tape for my stripes. This page came together in like 10 minutes! Oh, and I love to snooze!


Older page.


I used watercolor paper as my background for this page. I had a circle template from Fiskars that I used to paint the circles in different hues of blue. The story is about how good Skype birthdays can be :)


Older page.


They story here is time spend at the craft table with my nieces. We  love that time together! And pie charts you know ;)

Another month of this project is done and it feels good! 

Have a  great weekend!

Memory keeping | Cutie and happiness

I have been binge scrapbooking lately! I have those times where I just spit out layouts :) Here are two! 



This first one was made in stages. The background is acctually one I made while at my sister´s house. Me and my nieces were watercoloring and the pattern turned out kinda cool so I used it as my background here. My sister had family photos taken recently and I love these of my nephew! So I added them and a title and some words. This layout was so hard to photograph straight! Sorry about that.


This next page also has a bit of watercolor on it! I messed around with my thin brush one night and added a bit the result to the bottom of this page. I stamped on the top of the page, leaving a gap for the photo and journaling tag tucked behind. I am in love with these colors right now! 

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all your birthday wishes!
