Oh yes, I do use them although not so frequently nowadays! I promised you some LO’s using PP too, so here are a bunch of them.

DH and his brothers and cousins had a reunion during August last year, I got a lot of nice pictures.


I decided to keep this very clean and stick to red,white and black. The PP is MME, ribbon from L’il Davies and journaling box and flowers are MM. The very useful date stamp is from the Swedish company Inkido. The chipboard alphas are covered with UTEE in black.


PP and metal ribbon slider from Basic Grey, a manila tag with a Technique Tuesday stamp, flowers from Bazzill (Wings) and some stash stuff.


More Basic Grey PP, the same stamps as on the LO’s above, various flowers (I think Panduro and YouDo, buttons, ribbons and chinese coins from stash.

While on an outing with the National Guard, I got some nice pictures. They did a show on a fair-day held nearby and me and the kids got the opportunity to go with the fighting boat!


Karen Foster has some lovely neutral PP’s, which I have used here. The tag is K&Co and the date stamp from Inkido. Metal bar from AMM and some flowers and brads from my stash.


We spent some time ashore too, and here’s DH and Kevin sitting on the cliffs, enjoying the sunny day. The PP is from UK-based Dovecraft, flowers are Prima, a Bo Bunny sticker and a manila tag with a text stamp – I love that saying!

So, you see, I do use patterned papers too! I will show you more this coming week. Have a nice day and don’t forget to join us in the CropStop Blog Hop!

It’s Friday already – the week has passed quickly and today I’ll make a card for my SIL who celebrates her 40th birthday this weekend.

This weekend we’re blog hopping at CropStop! Read more here!

I promised you yesterday that I would give you something not so pink today… So I will!

Let’s start with something blue, very blue.


I made this LO for a challenge at CropStop a few weeks ago, using plain white cardstock which has been stamped and colored with Distress Inks, and the felt is actually a place mat for the table! The apricot colored flowers are Prima, from their Carribean Collection. Some jewelry parts in silver plated was to finish it off.

More blue, but a winter motif:


The word SNOW gets diverse reactions in our family. DH hates it, it has to be shoveled, while the kids love it, at least for a while. Up here in the north we do get a lot of snow, and it stays usually until mid April. It’s a long winter…

I’ve used Bazzill CS and plain white CS which I cut with the Gazelle to get the lovely edges. Tags, swirl and paper flowers are also Gazelle, the fabric flowers all comes from silk flower arrangements. I’ve used a lot of jewelry parts on this one, from the flower centers to the parade of ice bears! Oh, don’t forget the Distress Inks…

More blue…


Again plain white CS, Tim Holtz mask and Distress Inks, added some UTEE in platinum to the swirl, Crackle Paint on the chipboard alphas. The date tag is colored with Alco Inks. A 7Gypsies Inspection Tag, some Prima flowers and then bits and pieces from my stash. The paper flowers are Gazelle and inked.



Yep, the small pieces down in the right corner are mosaics.

My dining room floor was good enough to scrap!


Looks lovely, doesn’t it? Brown Bazzill CS, handmade paper from Svartvik, with inked edges, a swirl in gold from the Gazelle, some Prima flowers and a few jewelry parts.


Back to blue…


White CS, Tim Holtz masks, Distress Inks and some UTEE in platinum along with Heidi Swapp clock stamps gives the background. The silver colored stuff are all jewelry parts, the blue frame is clear acrylic colored with Alco Inks, the tag is made with the Gazelle and the flowers are Prima (Mini Can). The name tag is made in Faux Dichro technique.


The silver colored net is something I found in my fabric stash.

Yes, you’re absolutely right. No printed paper today, either! I will give you some of that next week…
