Ok, finally!! :) This is what I've been up to in between vacations and trips here and there.

A friend asked me to make letters for her newborn, and she wanted them green since she loves that color. I've added a little blue because it's a boy, and because just green would make it a bit flat. ;)

L is for Loved
 You've already seen a little bit of this in my last post, with the cute deer. I added two hearts on his little tush, and embossed ear and chest with Silver pearl. Also coated the eye with Glossy accent for extra dimension.
Perhaps I should mention the background paper aswell. It's a simple square pattern, with randomly added stamped stars. First a filled star, and on top of that a starry outline stamp wich I embossed. Pretty cool result I might say. :)

 The zinc tag with ribbons, an adorable stroller charm and a heart (with some extra left over pearls, great for making "new" embelishments of old stuff), all pinned together with a star shaped brad.
(The word 'Vår' translates into 'Our'.)

 Is it a bee? A fly maybe? I dunno. I do know it's kinda cute, and adds extra detail. I like. :)

 Flowers are always nice. These are fabric ones, and I've stamped on them with darker blue for extra effect. The center brad is really a snow flake.... but it's alright for this purpose also, no? :)

You've seen this one on other projects, if you've visited my blog before. I like it. I also like to make it just barely visible, on the side of a project. So I did just that this time too. ;)

E is for Enchanting
This was a quite messy background paper, so it needed a lot of embellishment. That might sound weird, but to add large objects on top makes the background less noisy. Luckily the word here (Underbara/Wonderful) was a long one. I also added a strip of paper at the bottom, with some of my beautiful stitching (LOL, this is why I'm doing scrap, not clothes), three buttons and a safety pin.

An itsy-bitsy tiny little car.

 Two of the letters was switched into these lovely fabric stickers.

Darling penguin on the loose, again. This time with embossed body and Crackle accent belly not to hide the lovely paper too much.

Butterflies fluttering by. 

O is for One of a kind
This one's also very much patterned, and yet I added some more. :) All the hearts on the left are stamped, in various colors and some even embossed. The pennants read 'Unge', wich translates to 'Kid'.

 Leaving a footprint...

 Super cute baby stroller from Karen Marie under the retro trees, and a wire heart resting at the bottom of the O.

 The pennant/clothes line.... I often use scrap pieces of paper from the other letters, that binds the project together in a nice and subtle way.

 Floral top.
 Did I mention I like white on white stamping? ;)  This is stamped on the side of the O...
