Something blue for Lemoncraft.

Hi there. This is turning out to be some seriously beautiful Springafternoon!! 
I shouldn't really be inside, but I am trying to get the last things sorted before I move to my new appartment in a couple of days.! I still have not caught up as far as posting my projects here
 so I thought I'd share a page I did for Lemoncraft a little while back.

 I used papers from the lovely and delicate 'Forget Me Not' collection that is predominantly a gorgeous blue colour.It's got beautiful flowery patterns as well. It's a favourite :-)

I used a die that Tim Holtz designed for Sizzix to make the rosette flower (below) and did some cute paper rolling to add some extra interest to my page. Some of the pretty flowers are sold by Lemoncraft and others are by Prima or Papirdesign.

The chipboard title and other bits here are by Blue Fern Studio and I treated them with some paint, mist and gesso. On top I added some liquid pearls.

 I am a very big fan of the stecil that Finnabair made for Prima. It's like a mini checkerbpoard. I could use it on almost all my pages,...( and probably do,!)

Stickers are by Papirdesign., but October Afternoon make similar ones. 
What's so great with these are that they have all the odd and special letters you'll find in the Scandinavian alphabet and that's just so cool!!

That was all for now!! 
I hope you like this and thanks for any comm ents in advance. 
I love to read your little messages! :-)

Take care!!

Sweet and romantic, 'Dream Big' for Lemoncraft.

Hi, today I want to share a page that I made some time back for my Polish DT Lemoncraft.
I picked a picture of my goddaughter and created a sweet and romantic girly page around it.

I used beautiful papers from the 'Just Love Me Collecton' and added gesso and mist to make 
it more personal.

The beautiful chipboard title word is by Blue Fern Studios and painted green to match. I fussy cut parts of the well designed papers and stamped around the edges with a grid-stamp by Kaisercraft. 
The flowers are mainly from my stash both by Prima and no brand flowers.

Just look at those lovely blue eyes. No filters needed here :-)

Thanks for looking! Hope to see you here again soon. 
Thanks for any comments you leave. Those are greatly appreciated :-)

'Happiness', my second March project for the Blue Fern Studios blog.

This is the second page made for my latest blog post on the Blue Fern Studios blog. I used a cute  photo of my dear sister snuggling one of our small nephews. I based the page on one of my absolute favourite sheets from the Sanctuary collection.

Below is a close up of the painted 'Flutter page dangle' with some added glass beads for texture.The glass beads were actually clear but picked up quite a bit of the brown colour as I glued them down.

And here you see some leftover bits from the large  chicken wire panel as a  goldpainted accent.

Lots of stamping, painting and misting on the background here and a fun paper rolling technique. And the pretty flowers are by Prima Marketing from the 'Cigarbox Secrets' collection.

(I used the Flutter Page Dangle, Arrow Words, Graduated Squares, Layering Stems, Sanctuary collection) 

Thanks for looking!
