I got me these new Tim Holtz embossing folders the other week, and thought they would look good using some handmade papers from Svartvik Paper. And they did! These papers go so well with the distressed look of these embossing folders, and I already knew they take the Distress Inks in a lovely way. These papers have inclusions of grass and has a raw edge making them perfect for this, and they also come in various sizes, such as A6 which fits perfectly in the embossing folders!

Some of my more traditional Christmas cards, all in standard 6×6″ format. The base is Bazzill for all of them, the patterned paper is Kaisercraft and K&Co. The lamp and poinsettia are cut with a BossKut Gazelle, the pine branches are made using a punch from Martha Stewart. The dots that looks like pearls are in fact dots – my latest passion is the Viva Decor Pearl Pens! Finally I have found a pearl maker that makes pearls like I want them; smooth ones and not toppy!

I have also used vellum, mulberry paper and some lovely handmade paper from Svartvik Paper in Sweden, this is structured like wood grain. It takes Distress Inks in a very special way as the paper is unsized.

Family photos

I like scrappin’ these old photos, this one of my grandma and grandpa on their wedding day.

The large flower comes from a bouquet of silk flowers, the lace found on a flea market, title cut with a Gazelle. The photo mat is a handmade paper with spanish moss inclusions from Svartvik Paper.

The rose from Wild Orchids Crafts got a little “dew” by adding Ranger Enamel.

I use a lot of flowers, and I need to change the appearance of them sometimes… This time I made them marbled!

Cut, die cut or punch your flowers from watercolor paper, bend the petals slightly to the back.

Add Distress Inks directly from pad to a craft sheet, mist lightly with water. Put the flowers FACE UP on the color/water area.

Mist lightly with water and let the flowers soak as much or as little ink as you like. Leave to dry.

Patterned paper is Heidi Grace, the photo mat is handmade paper from Svartvik Paper, title cut from self adhesive Bazzill with the Gazelle and colored with Glimmer Mists. Ranger Enamel Accents used on the Kaiser flowers and the roses.

The Gazelle is available at CropStop and Bumblebee, Ranger Enamel Accents from CropStop.

I altered notebooks as Christmas gifts for the teachers, they are similar but I used different papers on them (Indian handmade) and cut out names and decorations using the Gazelle.  The inside covers are stamped with Memento Inks and then covered/sponged with Distress Inks. Those inks works so well together! The paper on the inside cover comes from Svartvik Paper.

I know, I know… I have been very quiet for a while. First we got attacked by something called Christmas, then the Christmas was over and all the stuff had to be packed away again, and in January I started something that’s most exciting…

How about teaching Scrapbooking to 10 to 12 year old kids? That’s what I do a couple of hours every week now, at the local school.

I have crafted a lot, though. Here are a few of the stuff I’ve made during the last couple of months.

Kevin at the beach in July. I like to scrap these black-and-whites as they give so many options on colors. Basic Grey PP, stamps from Inkadinkado and Stampendous, Glimmer Chips from Tattered Angels and flowers from various manufacturers. Stickers and rub-ons from that bottomless drawer…

Kaknästornet in Stockholm, late October. The swirl (chipboard) is covered with Liquid Appliqué.

Kelly outside Tekniska Muséet in Stockholm.

The flower is a BossKut Daisy, cut with the Gazelle and embossed with a Sizzix Embossing Folder and then colored in with Distress Inks.

Canons outside Sjöhistoriska Muséet. I have no idea which manufacturer for the PP!

The title is made using Liquid Appliqué.

Kevin at Tekniska Muséet – THE place for 10 year old boys!

Some rub-ons simply don’t act as rub-ons…

… so I cut them out and used them as transparencies instead!

The title is cut with the Gazelle from Bazzill self-adhesive CS in white, then colored in with Glimmer Mists.

On my trip to Stockholm in October I finally got to meet Yoli – we’ve spoken on the net for so long and never met! Now we have, and we decided to sit together on the next IRL crop.

Note to Fia: please make sure the room is covered with plastic… You know, when the two of us comes together, anything can be  colored!

Kevin on the train from Stockholm in August. Bazzill CS, K&Co chipboard alphas, Tim Holtz stamps and masks, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass and lots if Distress Inks!

The old truck is stamped using Tsukineko Memento Desert Sand – almost invisible on the nature colored handmade paper from Svartvik – but takes on the Distress Ink that was swiped over it! Looks lovely!
