In the light of things

I don't know if it's an age thing but I've been rather displeased with the lighting in my scrap room. Yes, I have a day-light lamp, but apart from that it's just the ceiling lamp and the room has felt very dark lately. So at our trip to IKEA I bought a new set of lights and! It's like broad day-light in here now, I don't even need the day-light lamp.
So now I can start my new project - see all the christmas ornaments on the table? Gonna make myself a wreath :)

Nicecrane fairies

I was generously given a choice of images from Nicecrane Designs and wow, the choice was hard! So many gorgeous sheets!!
But finally I settled for The Fairies and Angels save pack. The images are so detailed and crisp and I absolutely love the vintage feel so of course I had to make a card right away!
With a Marianne die as background, a bow and some flowers the image makes a wonderful focal point.

Scrap och Ting - marin tavla

dags att blogga lite för Scrap och Ting och idag tänkte jag visa en tavla jag gjort - med sommartema så här mitt i allt höstrusk :)
Jag plockade fram papper från Reprint och Maja Design som jag använde kantskrapa och distresser på. Klippte ut trekanter som vimplar och ritade snöret på fri hand. Jag kunde till och med knyta en riktig råbandsknop, heja mej :). Snäckorna plockades på en utlandsresa för länge sedan och kom nu till användning. Med hjälp av smältlim fäster de bra.

Blir en bra tavla att hänga i sommarstugan, inte för att jag har nån, men jag känner ju dem som är lyckliga stugägare ;)

Allsorts - ribbon and bow

this week I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts. And since I live way up in the north of Sweden where we actually got snow this week (not a lot and it didn't stay but still...) I needed something to keep my mind off the freezing weather. And what better than pretty ribbons and bows!  

So use ribbon and bows on your creations this week so the images can warm my heart :)
I made a "mini card" with a Magnolia image, a Memory box die, pearls and seam binding.

Our two sponsors this week are:

4 images of winners choice
other challenges:

Midweek Magnolia - Song birds (Champagne supernova by Oasis)

Allsorts - use your alphabet

Hi all,
at Allsorts we have a slightly different challenge for you this week, it's to use alphabet letters in other ways than in a sentiment. At first I kinda froze but then I figured I could do a recipe card and use stamped letters to spell apple pie. Image is Rick st Dennis, apples are Magnolia and you pull the tag out to read the recipe.
