Prima seashore layout for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Have you, like me, been drooling over the new Prima collection Seashore?
Well, Kellie has now stocked the store with Prima goodies and there is more to come =D

I've mainly used the 12x12 collection kit, it comes with 2 sheet of each doublesided design plus several sticker sheets and cut-aparts. All the stickers except the chipboard on the LO is from the collection kit. Since everything coordinates it's so easy and quick to put this together.

Be prepared for more to come - LOL!

Products used from the store:
12x12 Prima seashore collection kit
6x6 Prima seashore paper pad
12x12 Seashore chipboard
Prima seashore typewriter keys
Prima seashore tags & tickets
Prima seashore flower leaves

Thank you for visiting!

Craft hoarders Anonymous challenge #8

Hi everyone!

If you follow me or Gloria Stengel you probably know I'm am one of the blessed to guest design for her awesome challenge blog for the month of May :)


The second challenge of May is to show us some metal or glass on your project!
I loved this one - I've been really impressed with both the projects and hauls showed out there and let's just say it is contagious - LOL!

So again, down I dive in my stash and I'm surprised to say - it's quite large! It must have miraculously grown in the dark of my closet :D
(Well, maybe all the draws from my bank account would prove otherwise - but we don't need to talk about that, do we?)

Anyway, here's what I came up with!

The background is a kraft cardstock stamped with gears from Technique Tuesday and I embossed the left corner in LSG midnight pewter - really liked the metallic look of that embossing powder! Wished I had done the entire background, not just the corner. But now I know better next time!

Layered on top of that background is a cardstock dry embossed  with  a Tim Holtz impression folder from the set gears and clocks, distressed with vintage photo. That is pretty much it, the rest is embellishment mostly metal.

You see a lot of Tim Holtz and some Prima, but also a couple of filigree that I actually found quite cheap in Sweden - who knew? Mostly our range of supplies is quite limited and very very pricey. 

Thank you for visiting!
I can't wait to see what you talented peeps come up with.

So here is one with a darker background!

Please, let me know what you think!

Products used from the store:
Wee stamp BIRD SWING

The Rubber Buggy Challenge - Vintage inspiration

Hi everyone!

A new challenge is up on The Rubber Buggy challenge blog.
So bring back the vintage!!!

Here is my vintage tag, I've forgotten how much fun it is to make tags and this was so quick and easy.

The background is really just a Kaisercraft background stamp and some Magnolia post card stamp.
The entire tag is distressed with vintage photo and sprayed with perfect pearl mist in biscotti.

The bicycle is a memory box die and die cut from Prima Engraver paper, added with some bling and WOC flowers.

Like I said, super easy!
Took me 10-15 min :D

Thank you for visiting!
Can't wait to see what you'll make.

Siluette Tilda for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I recently saw the most amazing cards being done with distress background and just the siluette image of flowers, trees and dragonflies. As you can see I was somewhat inspired :) 

However, I don't have any good stamps for that kind of card. Most of mine are for colouring and detailing. But I figured what if I coloured it black...

What do you think of the result? Mine is nowhere close to the atmosphere I was going for, but with some stickles, it turned a lot better and I just think I need more practise - LOL!
Next time I will go for more darker distressing too, but as I have already put the stickles to this one I don't think it will work as good as if I had a smooth surface to work on...

Well, maybe next time :)
But please let me know what you think!

Products from the store:
Smooth paper
Magnolia rubber stamp DANCING QUEEN TILDA
Magnolia rubber stamp STONE PATH
Kaisercraft SHEET MUSIC
Copic marker B100
Distress ink TUMBLED GLASS
Distress ink BUNDLED SAGE
Distress ink PEELED PAINT
Stickles gold
Stickles mint

Crafter Hoarders Anononymous guest designer

Hi everyone!

I have a special annoncement to make today:)


I am one of the honoured and blessed ones to have been selected to be a guest designer for Craft Hoarders Anonymoius Challenge Blog!!! If you follow Gloria Stengels beautiful work you are already familiar with the blog. If not, you must have a look - Gloria has really put together the best and most inspiring team. The challenges are so fun and the prizes are amazing. One of the great things too is that there is no random winner, but Gloria and the team takes the time to choose which their favourites are.

So, if you haven't already figured it out. I'm up for the challenges of May and here is my first contribution. This challenge it's all about fibers! Time to really dig throught your stash of ribbons, laces and twines. 

I made a paper bag. The paper is from the Engraver collection, A4-format. The paper itself is so beautiful that it doesn't need much decoration. The dressform diecut is stamped with text and some flourishes. I made a skirt of two layers of lace that I coloured and hid the seam with the bow of seam binding. This is the first time I've used real seam binding and let me tell you I'm hooked - LOL!

The handles of the bag is also seam binding and I glued some eyelash fibre to the top of it. I just added some twine to the spool and added a Tim Holtz trinket pin. The cluster of cherry blossoms are from I am roses.

I had a blast making this bag and I thought I really dug through my stash, but... it barely made a dent - LOL!

Thank you for visiting!
Can't wait to see your creations:)
