Graphic 45 crossover

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a new project for The Rubber Buggy and I have finally managed to make a LO of my newborn precious baby boy. 

Kellie has brought in the latest of Graphic 45 and I am waiting for my DT-package to arrive with Graphic 45's Deluxe Collectors Edition Baby 2 Bride. But until then I made this layout with a cross over of several collectins from Graphic 45. I'm hoping to show you how easy it is to mix and match them.

The collections I've mixed are from Once upon a time, Little darlings and Birdsong. The LO is inspired from the sketch challenge at my local scrapbook store. The titel reads "finally!" in Swedish and I've used a lot of metal filigree and prima pearls from my stash.

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45 staples ornate metal keyholes
Vintage photo distress ink
Bazzil cardstock (matting)
Shimmer sprays (blue and brown droplets on the LO)
Stamping supplies (scissors for fuzzy cutting, tape, glue)

 I hope I've inspired you to look at your Graphic 45 collections differently.
Thank you for visiting!

Baby tags

Hi everyone,

I'm here with a really quick project for The Rubber Buggy.

Mid-september I became a mother to a precious baby boy and since then time has just flown away.
So be on the look out for baby layouts, project life - baby's first year and more baby projects :D

However, today I'd like to show you a 5-minute project, which was litterly all the time I got for this.
Besides baby annuncemen, I've taken a few (hundreds) photos of my new treasure and I'm giving a few of them away to close family. But being me and not having created anything for a period of time I took this opportunity to at least make a couple of tags.

Being a bit ambitious, I soon discovered that someone demanding attention was not planning to give me as much time as needed - even though I thought I was planning it tight :D
Needless to say, my tags became a bit more simple than firstly planned, but in the end I'm very pleased with the result anyway. The paper from G45 makes the tags look anything but boring and the die cut wording makes them pop a bit. I didn't even have time to die cut the reinforcer for the tag. As G45 paper is double sided it would have been super easy to match, just turn the paper over. I was also planning to put some flatback bling on the tags...

I'm mainly bummed about forgetting the twine to string the twine with though... But a glue dot will have to do now.

Products used from the store:
G45 12x12 French country PROVENCE
Magnolia Doohickey cutting dies tag (similar)
Memory box die BABY SCRIPT (similar)
Blue chalk (coming soon)

Items that didn't make it...
Flat back crystals
Crochet lace, light blue
MFT die-namics fancy flourish
WOC 10mm open roses
WOC hip rosebuds

Thank you for visiting!
Hopefully I'll make it in time for my next post - but I feel it would be wise not to make any promises for now =D

Lawnscaping challenge - one layer

Hi everyone!

I'm on a roll now - LOL!!
For my other SSS Stamptember card please scroll down or find it HERE

What can I say, September - STAMPTEMBER, just gets me going :P

I'm here with my latest love affair - Lawn Fawn :D
Yes, yes, yes... I know, you've all already been charmed by them. But again, if you know me... You know I'm the latest... I blaim the limited supply we have in Sweden, haha!

Anyhow, as I recently been smitten with Lawn Fawn, no wonder I also just discovered Lawnscaping challenges too :D

This week was ONE LAYER, not as easy as you may think. But I'm loving it!!

I've used the sentiments in the PLUS ONE set and teamed them with Simon says stamp BABY clear stamp to create a boarder on the card. Super pleased with the result. However, it turned out that the clear stamps were different in hight, so if you were planning to try this technique - do have an extra acrylic block nearby. This will make it easier for you, not needing to replace all the stamps every time. I then just stamped my image, coloured it quickly with (mainly) copic markers and that's it.
Go one layer!

It is only one layer - honestly :)
I would like to say that this was easy...
But it took me four tries, before I got it right...
I will say though, that after I got it right... :)
... it was a no brainer! (Blaiming preggo-brains)

Simon says STAMPTEMBER challenge

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a card for a college of mine, who recently undergone heart surgery. I just wanted a simple one and I thought of these old Teresa Collins' clear stamps, vintage finds, which really goes with anything!

I truely love this set, but I use them far to rarely - and what do you know... They ripped?!?!? Both the story- stamp and the time-stamp which you put in the window of the bingo card :( Crying my eyes out now!! I'm actually considering to rebuy them...

I couldn't resist to put some of my latest buy at I am roses, but pastel combo of the R6-roses. Gorgeous mix of colors! Love every one of them. I also added the cherry blossom and the tiny rosebuds from my stash. Of course I also sprayed them with Biscotti pearl mist, before I stucked them down.

This card is entered in SSS wednesday challenge - stamp-it and blog hop
. I was really pleased as I put it together, but I can now see that I could have done with some background stamping as well... A fav of mine is to combine these stamps with the background stamp from Tim Holtz' papillon cling set. I also really need to work on my stash on sentiments... Reason to shop ;)

I hope you liked it :)
