Sending happy thoughts from the Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

It's been some time since my last post, but I'm back now and I'd like to show you my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.

I made a card using paper from Graphic 45, Prima and Magnolia. The blue background is from G45 6x6 paper pad, solids and patterns from the new collection steampunk spells. And the two layered papers are from Prima engraver and Magnolia once upon a time.

I've coloured a few of the daisies with LSG a bit o bubbly and clam bake beige - they turned out gorgeous. The key is from Graphic 45 and tied to a button from my stash with twine from the store.
The doily is a die cut and I've layered a circle which I've stamped a Magnolia background on. The sentiment is a stamp from MFT.

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45, 6x6 solids and patterns paperpad, steampunk spells
Prima 6x6 paper pad, engraver
Magnolia 12x12, turquoise rose ornament
Bakers twine, seafoam
Graphic 45 staples, ornate metal keys
WOC, cosmos daisies
MFT die-namic decorative doily
Magnolia background stamp love
Tim Holtz distress ink, antique linen
Tim Holtz distress ink, walnut stain

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs :)

The Rubber Buggy Layout

Hi everyone!
I wish to share a layout that I made for the Rubber Buggy. Love this Magnolia paper, so fun and easy to make your own. Here I have stamped and splattered the paper with LSG to make is more personal.  And the wood grain has a beautiful white colour which makes it so easy to coordinate with colors and seasons :) The memory box delicate fern die is perfect as the fern is very common in Sweden and it adds just the perfect touch. I've tied some jute twine to enhance the country feeling to the page. The butterflies are fuzzy cut from graphic 45 paper and I've added some dew drops in coffee (from Simon says stamp, although I find the colour more orange).

Products used from the Rubber Buggy store:
Magnolia new england wood paper 12x12
Magnolia tag die
Magnolia love background stamp
Graphic 45 paper 8x8 (this collection is the olde curiosity shoppe)
Graphic 45 french country stamp set #3
Graphic 45 packaging from metal brads
Spellbinders postage stamp nestabilities

New challenge at The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at The Rubber Buggy again:)

This time it's SUMMER FLOWERS!!!
Inspired by the beautiful Swedish summer and "Midsommar" I'd like to see all of your flowers :)

Flowers are my favorite embellishment. I'm having a hard time not to put a cluster of flowers and leaves on my projects. I like the look of a bouquet, so once I start it can be hard to stop me from adding more and I also count die cuts and sprays as embellishment to my cluster of flowers - LOL!

Anyway, Swedish midsommar is all about flowers (apart from the food, the drinks and having a good time). We dress a pole in flowers and leaves to dance around, girls are wearing flower garlands and tradition states that you must collect 7 different flowers from 7 different fields to put under your pillow and you shall dream of the man you shall marry.

I can't wait to see what you all create!

Another DIY project life collection

Hi again!

If you follow me you'll know that I could not resist the project life trend :)
Last week I showed you how you could make your own project life kit with just a paper trimmer and a corner punch with Prima almanac collection for the rubber buggy.

This week I will show you how you can continue even further with some addition of stamps and bling.

Again I've used some digital prints to embellish the paper from Prima Divine on the outer two 3x4 cards. I then stamped sentiments on the top right corner, down left corner and the "lucky me". Just as I did last week - I once again fussy cut elements from the collection and made small banners. I used the washi tape from the divine collection as well. On the bottom right corner I used some bling as well :)

The only card that is left untouched is the 3x4 with tiles - that one has only rounded corners.
I hope you try it yourself:)

Thank you for visiting!

From the Rubber Buggy - don't be intimidated by project life

Hi everyone!

I have a little different DT-post for you today. Instead of a card of a layout I wanted to show you how you easily can make your own project life kit.

Yes, I got sucked right in to this trend and I love the feeling of achivement even though you've barely finished a quater of the spread - LOL! I also caved in and bought a Becky Higgings core kit which is wonderful. But as I was thinking... One could just cut paper, round the corners and make these pocket fillers yourself.

So here I'm showing you a set with the Prima Almanac which you can find at The Rubber Buggy.
I've just cut the 6x6 paper in order to fit 4x6 and 3x4 pockets, rounded the corners and embellished them with cut outs from the element sheet in the paper. If you want a printed card there are lots of free downloads on the net, just google "project life downloads and print on designer paper. See the upper left 6x4 and the outer 3x4 for printables.

Apart from the second 3x4 from the left everything has been embellished with cut outs from the same paper pad as the rest of the paper. I've only used glue and TH tiny attacher to fastned them so all of this came together really fast.

Please, join me again next week at The Rubber Buggy were I will show you a spread of project life with Prima Divine paper pad.

Thank you for visiting!
