Some LO’s I’ve made during the past year – very mixed!

What’s up and what’s down? The flower is from a Prima Mini-can and the leaf from an ordinary satin flower.

This PP is from Dovecraft, stickers from Bo Bunny, flowers from Prima. Hey, there’s a strange flower in there…

The yellow-tinted one is made by casting UTEE in a silicone mould.

The papers are all MME Trés Jolie, except for the vintage print which comes from a series of papers called Renaissance Papers. Flowers are all Prima,  the flourish is cut with the Gazelle and covered with UTEE in platinum. The brads are common office type, covered with UTEE.

White CS and K&Co Ancestry papers.  The white distressed paper behind the photo mat is handmade from Svartvik Paper and has a lovely grain structure. The flourish si cut with the Gazelle, and then stamped and inked with Distress Inks. The metal embellishments are all jewelry components.

I have started an album for Kevin’s teacher, which will leave the class after three years. This is one of the LO’s from a Star Night they had last year. The K&Co paper went so well with the colors in the photo. The daisies are a BossKut original cut with the Gazelle, and the strange trimming is made with seed beads using a necklace pattern!

I get all my seed beads from my favorite bead supplier, Zionesse. They have everything I need for bead weaving. I’ve made a whole bunch of decorations using the left-over beads. A fun way to jazz up the pages!

Instructions for the fan can be found in my previous post (pointing downwards). The flowers are made from black cardstock cut with the Gazelle using the BossKut Daisy “die” and stamped with an unknown stamp with Staz-On in Cotton White. For the fan I used Autumn Leaves Whirly Gigs stamps and Staz-On in Jet Black, the edges are colored with Distress Inks Black Soot.

My little cool cat, Kevin.  The flowers here are Prima Esprit and BossKut Wildflowers cut with the Gazelle, inked and embossed.  The flourish is also cut with the Gazelle, a BossKut shape that I have sized up a bit. A lot of jewelry parts and so these glass decorations that I have stamped, embossed and covered with 3D-laquer.

My aunt celebrated her 80th birthday some weeks back and this is the card I made for her. WorldWin cardstock, K&Co Ancestry paper, Prima flowers and some stuff from my stash.

is easy as 1-2-3! I’ve cut a flourish – which I have stamped, embossed, inked and was ready to use for another project when I accidently damaged it… So I used it as a mask instead!

Put a tacky-drying glue thinly on the back. I’ve used Kläber-fix but Wacky Tack, ZIG two-way or any other glue that dries tacky will do. If it dries too tacky, like Kläber-fix does, just dust it lightly with baby powder. Attach it to your LO or card and start using it as a mask, then take it off and store it on acetate until next time.

The flourish in the upper left corner has been covered with UTEE in black and gold:

The flourish in the upper right corner is in fact the mask… I managed to hide the damaged part under a flower.

Gloria at CropStop challenged us last week to make a Tim Holtz inspired tag, and here’s my take on it:

img_7984

Alco Inks, UTEE, Distress Inks, a printed picture of a bag, Gazelle cut keysand some jewelry parts.

As I was about to make another project for CropStop on borders, I included the tag in this one:

img_7983

BossKut border and Wildflowers and a key, all stamped and inked and a little UTEE on the key, Prima flowers and some AC Thickers alphas, some stuff from my stash. I like the BK stuff here, the border is great and the wildflowers are so easy to make in different ways!

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.

img_7186

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:

img_7394

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…

img_7400

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.

img_7401

img_7402

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

My dining room floor was good enough to scrap!

img_7407

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.

img_7408

Back to blue…

img_7415

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.

img_7417

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…

I have uploaded my LO in their gallery, and it’s here, too. Go check CropStop out – some fun things are going on there!

img_7267

I found a piece of Madison Avenue PP for this, some handmade paper from Svartvik Paper (this is so lovely to put Distress Inks on!), some lace and ribbon, a Gazelle-cut flourish and tags. And I realized that this was the first LO for weeks I’ve used PP on! Yay! Have a look at the others further down this page – no patterned paper…

img_7185

I played around in purple… Lots of stuff cut with the Gazelle and I had just got my Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Shows, huh?

img_72681

Back to pink! That’s Kelly’s color, all the way. Plain white CS, handmade paper, both colored with Distress Inks, the CS also stamped and masked with a Gazelle-cut. Laces, lots of jewelry parts, some UTEE and Prima flowers.

img_7270

Crackle Paint on the chipboard and UTEE gold on the metal flowers.

img_7278

Mmm… A walk in the forest in the fall… So nice!

Plain white cardstock with a Tim Holtz mask and Distress Inks, some gold cardstock under the handmade paper from Svartvik and some stamped Alvin flowers and some Gazelle-cuts. Hey, what’s that tucked in with the flowers?

img_7280

Ooh! Faux Dichro! I will tell you more on this technique later on, I have to check out some other alternatives to do it first. Usually this is made by using dichroic glass and a fusing kiln, but mine isn’t wired, so I have to do it the “faux” way! The buttons I’ve used as flower centers are DressItUp, which I love. Comes in so many colors and shapes!

img_7395

After a long walk in the forest, one surely is allowed to have cupcakes – especially when you still are outdoors and a bit cold… White CS again, the same Tim Holtz mask and even more Distress Inks… Some flowers of various origin, UTEE in bronze, and that lovely journaling stamp is from Stellas.

img_7397

I’m very into copper at the moment, this is a jewelry part.

img_7398

Luckily I’m surrounded by girls – because I love scrapping in pink! All shades. Pink! White CS with some Glimmer Mist (homemade variety!) on it, a round swirl lace – Gazelle-cut – stamped and inked, two overlays, one is stamped, the other colored with Alco Inks. Some flowers from Prima and Bazzill, and goldplated jewelry parts. And a strange flower…

img_7399

The translucent flower is actually made of melted UTEE, poured into a silicone mould.

img_7403

No, I’m not kidding. More pink! White CS, a swirly lace cut with the Gazelle and then inked and stamped, some lovely pink lace I found at Tradera, and all the other paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle, too.  The overlay inside the ticket shape is stamped with Staz-On and colored with Alco Inks.  I added some gold plated jewelry parts for the bling…

No, no more pink today – I’m off to bed! I think tomorrow will be blue. Or brown. With some dashes of pink…

I started with altering pen cases for my pens and brushes, using K&Co Ancestry paper, flowers from Prima and some jewelry stuff together with ribbons.

I was so pleased with this set, so I decided my tools needed a new place to live! For this I’ve used a set of “paper bags” made of wood from Creative Company. I have used basically the same products.

But where should my stickers live? I found this card portfolio at the local supermarket.

All supplies are from Nettans Scrapbooking4You and KT Crafts, except Pen Cases: COOP, “paper bags” and vintage stickers: Creative Company and portfolio: ICA Maxi

The flowers have been covered with UTEE, creating an almost glass-like finish.
