Another girly girl letter, but in a softer, more romantic pink. I wanted this to look a little bit vintage in style and therefore added a whole bunch of stamps on top of the pink background paper. By using clear ink and heat embossing with Vintage powder it became less bubblegum and more shabby, wich I really like.  

The plaid ribbon picks up the brown color from the stamps, and so does the metal pearls, the brad and the frame. 

Dunno if I succeeded in my attempts to make this look like a clothes line, but I totally fell in love with that curly overall <3 ...and what about that cutie kitten in a basket?? OMG.

This adorable angel is my favourite part! I SO wish I had more of these... I put a tiny glitter heart on it, and blinged up the wings with pink Stickles.

But the reason it's my favourite GLOWS in the dark!! Cooooool huh? It's super sweet!! Sadly I have no picture of it glowing though, it was too dark. :)

Princess in pink

Hello everyone! Chilly winds from up north, and I'm starting to feel christmasy. :) Early maybe, but we're planning for christmas at work so my head's filled with ideas for snowflakes on the walls and such. At home it's still fall though. The boys asked for jack o'lanterns today...
...and speaking of lanterns, there are still no light chain lanterns in sight in my craft room, but I do have a few new wood signs to show - when I come around to taking photos that is.

Ok, so meanwhile, here's a new letter.

Bright, bold colors and a whole bunch of hearts and crowns.

Princess-theme, in case you missed it. Hearts of all sorts in the background.

The deer from The Greeting Farm is simply SO sweet, perfect for baby projects. I've used it before, and am sure to do so again. This time I let it blend in with the background and just used a hint of white on the eye and chest.

Not really complete without some white on white stamping. There's also the baby's name along the side, but I didn't bother about a photo for that. I've done it about a million times by now. :)

A crown fit for a king.....I mean princess!

a present P

Hi friends! I know I've been super slow in updating my blog lately...or actually, I've been slow for a long time. It's not that I don't do things anymore, it's just that I often find myself doing things that aren't really scrapbooking related. I guess you've seen that here too, right? It's sugar scrubs and fabric book shelves and felted soaps and clay no, I haven't showed that one here - yet. :)
Last night started out sooo good, with plans for making paper cups into the cutest lanterns for a light chain.....whooa! I dunno what happened, but I found myself painting my nails instead. Not just painted either, but ombre painting.... That takes like forever. I learned that yesterday. Haven't decided if I like it yet. :P

Now, enough about me. Onto this fun project instead, a custom made P from this summer. The title "a present P" is a play with words btw, the swedish word for gift is present.

I was asked to follow the color scheme from Kim as you are, so I did. I believe this one turned out a bit darker though. At first I thought I was in way over my head with the blurry design paper I picked. But then, after adding layers and layers of even more pattern, it worked out quite well.

Angel with glitter wings and red heart.

Here's a bit of the multi layered background, and some more stuff on top. I first used a wire netting stencil with white acrylics and then stamped and embossed swirls. The polka dot organza ribbon had a rich red tone that I like, so that color is repeated in the butterflies.

Instead of a name, half of a "smile" stamp, with the dot replaced with a glittery heart.

Doggie. :)

L.O.V.E. this charm and how perfect it goes with the ribbon.

I wonder if I'll be making the lanterns tonight? ;)
