I like small elves…

so I give you a few more elf-photos today!


Plain white cardstock, a Tim Holtz mask and lots of Distress Inks… That was the base for this. I added some K&Co PP and some UTEE to the edges from the mask. The chipboard alphas are painted with Ranger Crackle Paint Fired Brick. The strange little thing under the photo is a piece of china, with I-relief, china paint and liquid gold. The tag and the poinsettias are cut with the Gazelle, the flowers are hand painted. A piece of lace to the right.



I put Ranger Crackle Paint on the photo mat, too, this time in the color Vintage Photo:


Did I tell you I like elves? Here’s Peyton again, still dressed!


Almost all paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle, and there’s a lot of Distress Inks on this project, too. The small swirl is covered with UTEE in gold, the poinsettias are handpainted, and notice the lovely photo corner in the upper right. I get those from Svartvik Paper.

The overlay is made out of acetate, stamped with various stamps using Staz-On and colored with Ranger Alcohol Inks.

I’m still working on the Christmas pictures… They never end!

This one is of Peyton, a very clean LO to be one of my productions. I just love the text sticker here, from BoBunny:


The stamp on the photo mat comes from Stämpelboden, the ghost alphas are Heidi Swapp that I decorated using Ranger Alco Inks, and in the middle of the flower is a piece of shrink plastic with a stamp from Crafty Individuals (PaperMaze carries them in Sweden)



And here’s big sister with an OOPS…


The ornaments and fir branch is cut using the Gazelle, so is the frame around the subtitle, and also covered with UTEE in gold.


I’m leaving Christmas, at least for the evening, and show you a picture from August instead. This LO is made for a challenge at Hoppetossa’s blog, to scraplift one of her LO’s:


The background paper is Bazzill Vanilla, then a Tim Holtz mask, Distress Inks, tags and gears cut using the Gazelle, also decorated with Distress Inks and some Glimmer Mist to that, ended with some stamps. The paper is handmade from Svartvik Paper and the top tag is made using Alco Inks and UTEE. The rest of the embellishments is the result of a deep digging in my stash.

A small challenge!

My friend Hoppetossa challenged me to do something using chipboard alphas, a stamp and UTEE, and this is what I made:


Hoppetossa has a tutorial in her blog, I have followed it but did not use Perfect Pearls and Distress Inks as she did. I used Distress Inks on the tag, the gears and the swirl background instead, and Alco Inks on the journaling tag.

If you haven’t visited Hoppetossa, do so! She has some amazing stuff in the blog.

I usually don’t create my LO’s using sketches – but when there’s a challenge, I do! I found this one at the Cropstop Forum and it’s the challenge for January. Hurry on, girls! Create and join!

I bought this patterned paper when I started almost three years ago, and have no idea which manufacturer it is. The journaling is made on handmade paper from Svartvik Paper.

Here’s a closeup on the title, created with chipboard alphas from Panduro, Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and UTEE in gold:


I had a great helper in Kelly when washing up the porcelain for Christmas (yes, I use special china then!)


The photo mat is made from mulberry paper, colored with Distress Inks, it makes a lovely effect!


I still have tons of pictures from Christmas to scrap – and I thought Christmas was over… Never for a scrapper, though!

A lot of stuff from my bottom drawer… I promise, I don’t know where I hide this stuff for the rest of the year!


The tags are cut using the Gazelle, decorated with stamps and Distress Inks. I put some Crackle Paint on the chipboard alphas.


Flowers, tags and gears are cut-outs, decorated with stamps and Distress Inks.


Bye-bye, Santa! Gears, title, border and frame cut with the Gazelle, flowers are Prima and Panduro.


Kelly doesn’t like to wait for Santa…  How about that lovely stamp in the top right corner? I got it from Inkido.


Tulle in the flower centers…



… Christmas Tree decorations from IKEA jazzed up with some Alco Inks!


Hello Kitty, of course! Hey, there’s a sevenyearold girl here, what did you expect?


I found these lovely Hello Kitty buttons at Tradera, the seller is known as JimbaGirl (she’s great to do business with!).


I really love the Crackle Paint from Ranger, this chipboard alpha was first colored with Alco Inks, but it turned out too dark, so I covered it with Tattered Rose Crackle paint instead, and look how nicely the dark Alco Ink comes through in the crackles! Just perfect!

I think that will be all for today – but I still have a ton of projects to upload so stay tuned…
