… blev det, årets påskägg!

Jag har gått över ett metallägg med Alco Inks och sedan dekorerat med mycket otraditionella färger.

Den svarta spetsen sprättade jag lös från en underkjol, sen dök jag ner i gömmorna och hittade passande organzaband, blommor och pearls.

Metallägget (i 3-pack – olika storlekar) kommer från Panduro, så även tasseln, de flesta av blommorna och blingen.

Tips: om man inte har Alco Inks kan man få en liknande effekt genom att använda ProMarkers eller Copics och handdesinfektionsmedel, eller de härliga äggmarmoreringssatserna som finns hos Panduro!

Panduro had a sale recently, and they had Prima papers too! Guess who stocked up on them? I’ve used them a lot these past weeks. Here are a few of the LO’s I’ve made.


The tag comes from one of Kevin’s t-shirts, I painted it with Crackle Paint and added a rub-on.


Flowers from Prima and PYHobby, the pearl white brads are office type brads which I have embossed (pointing downwards, instructions there), the photo mat is of my own production, stamps and journalpaper from Prima, chipboards from K&Co, except the swirl which is from Panduro. Painted with Crackle Paint and added Distress Ink.


Flowers from Prima, Wild Orchids and PYHobby, the leaves comes from an interior design shop, the leaf border is stamped, embossed and alco inked on acetate (instructions in an earlier post), flower centers (half pearls) are bought at Tradera.


Prima and Wild Orchids flowers, chipboard swirl from Panduro, brads are embossed with UTEE Britez Fuchsia.


Flowers from the same places as all the LO’s above. The chipboard swirl was really piggy pink so I added some red Staz-On to it. Journal tag/calendar from Webster’s Pages.


The photo mat is of my own production, but can also be bought from Svartvik Paper, this one is stamped with Prima stamps and Staz-On ink. The title is a SEI rub-on, flowers are Prima and Imaginisce, the belt buckle from K&Co, but I added some Crackle Paint to it as it was in wrong color.


A wooden Domino piece, distressed. The lovely screw brads comes from Creative Club.


The large brad lower left comes from Panduro, the hook and eye on the right is from one of mom’s sweaters (don’t tell her!).

That’s enough of Prima for today – but don’t worry, there’s more (I just ordered another pile of them…)

I am so in love with my Gazelle! It cuts just what I want and this time I wanted flowers.


I didn’t use the original flower centers for these, instead I put some vintage buttons in. Looks lovely! The photo mat is handmade paper with stone structure from Svartvik Paper, the fern leaf is also cut with the gazelle and covered with UTEE in gold.


For this I used BossKut’s Daisy, and by using the Gazelle I can cut it in any size I want without having to have several dies.


Here I used BossKut Wildflowers, also cut in different sizes. The bracket frames are of my own design, also cut on the Gazelle.


All paper embellishments, including the photo mat, are cut with the Gazelle.


Here, too! The tag is made using Alco Inks and UTEE in black.



The metal parts where all silver colored before I dressed them up using UTEE Britez!


Sometimes the whole world is in pink – like for Kelly! All paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle, some BossKut “dies”, like the rose, daisies and wildflowers, but also some of my own designs. The photo mat is handmade paper from Svartvik Paper, and the lovely flower centers are bought at Tradera (JimbaGirl has a lot of blingy things!)

Not if you’re a scrapper! I still have photos from Christmas to work with, here are a few of them


I played around some with my Gazelle here, this was my first attempt at welding alphas – and it worked!


My last play with the Fiskars cutting system – the day after I made this layout I handed the cutter and all the templates over to my daughter, Jessica.


Back to the Gazelle! The paper embellishments are all made with it. The journaling is written on handmade paper from Svartvik.


Hey, no cuts? That’s right. I can still create without it, although it’s hard…


… so I dug deep in the jewelry supplies instead!


A felt border from a nearby store and a skeleton leaf from IKEA.


The alpha “buttons” are made of FIMO-clay, I added some Alco Inks to them and topped with stickers from Mrs Grossmans.


The glittery flower center is a PopUp dot from Glue Dots covered with Doodlebug Sugar Coating.


This felt border is from Panduro. I added some dots with Liquid Pearls to it.


Except for the Prima flowers, all paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle. The Poinsettia is cut in gold cardstock and painted with Distress Inks.



This is an acrylic frame that got dressed up with some gold leaf and Alco Inks. I was very pleased with the result and will make more of those!

is something I seem to do a lot – I like taking long walks, especially in the forest.


I shot this picture in November last year, while walking in the woods in the middle of nowhere – that’s where big brother has his cabin!

The round swirly thing is made using the Gazelle (thanks for the template, Lucille!), it has been stamped, inked and misted. The same goes for the tag, which also has a Cuttlebug image on it, made in doublesided tape and covered with Doodlebug Velvet. That speckled thing around the hole on the tag is acetate with Alco Inks.


The flower is cut with the Gazelle, stamped, inked and misted, I have also used several metalized plastic beads on this layout, the photo mat is a handmade paper from Svartvik Paper.


That handmade paper is a lovely surface for Distress Inks!

My SIL is set on loosing weight – and she’s taking it in small parts. I have promised her a gift everytime she reaches one of her goals, hopefully it will keep her going! This time she will get a birthday calendar.


This is what January looks like:


More walking? OK, here’s Lorelai out on a walk


The patterned paper is MME Trés Jolie, photo mat and envelope from Svartvik Paper (the photo mat has inclusions of grass while the envelope has inclusions of Spanish Moss), ticket and scalloped lace are both cut with the Gazelle and stamped and inked, flowers from Prima and as usual some jewelry parts, ribbons and other stuff from my deep, deep drawers…


The chipboard is painted with Ranger Crackle Paint, the lovely brown skeleton leaf is one of my Tradera-treasures.


A close-up on the envelope. Isn’t this one lovely?

The negative of the V on the LO above is used here:


I added some UTEE in gold on it, cut a large swirl with the Gazelle, played around with tags, ribbons, Distress Inks and stamps for a while, added some stickers and flowers and ended up with this.
