My Sunshine- mini album

Happy Saturday to you all! I have a something really special to show you today! It´s me first mini album in years! (a part from the prima class... that was a huge inspiration!!) I´m so happy with this album and I have taken allot of photo! and HERE is a video where I show the mini and talk about it... allot...

Here are some details:
measurements: 6"*6,5"
Paper: My Mindes Eye- Lost & Found "Sunshine"
Flowers& Leafs: Prima, metal, pyhobby roses & "Julia´s book-page roses"
Bling: Prima "Time traveler" & pyhobby pearl-swirl

 The tags are made from left over paper and some bling & leafs
I kid you not when I say I have no paper left! The hole pad is in this album! It feel so good to know that I used up as much scrap-paper as possible! I just love this Lost & Found papers and at that same time I didn´t want to much on the pages. So how ever gets it have room to put in their photos and journaling. I put on some 4*4" photo mates in an off-white cardstock, some are glued down and some are in the pockets.

I´m so happy with this mini that I have already started on a new one :)

 Flowers, book flowers, pearls, buttons and a pin
 I used "Dove craft"- candy flos on the cheery flowers and "vintage photo" on the book page roses

"Lady" -Layout

This week I have had a really good crafting week. I´m so happy that I made so many good cards! But today is it a layout that I wanted to shear:

You know that I have tried to challenge myself this week but so I just wanted to make something... Julia. So I made this LO around Britta that looks like a super model with wind in her hair. 
 I just took Panduro- Tilda papers, doily, book-pages, doily and washi tape and put it over each other.
 I wanted some floral but still keep that rough feel so I took this metal flour.

 All the edges is distressed with my new Prima distressing tool! Love it so much, really like the steal brush on the the photo

I Hope you like it, and to see you soon :)

Make it Easy: Mother-day

On Sunday it´s mothers-day here in Sweden and of coarse every mother wants a card. So I thought that I would make a easy one that you can use yourself. The papers that I used where scrap from the Prima class and a ATC card.
So here is the formula:
1. 6*12 (card base)
1. 5*5 patterned paper
1. ATC
1. Mini doily
1. Image, dosen´t have to be a stamp
1. border/ ribbon
liquid pearl- gold

Layer the papers, doily, border/ ribbon and then the image/ photo/ text. The go around the paper & ATC with the liquid gold, making small dots.

The sea shore paper where perfect for this card not just because my mom loves the ocean but she really likes this magnolia stamp (witch is perfect for this collection!!) Her tail is colored with distress markers "Peacock Feathers" and then I went over it with Lindy´s stamp gang "Tibetan Poppy Teal" for some glimmer.

A quick and easy card for even you want a simple card, don´t have time or to someone that is not in to lace and roses ;)

Love Julia

Embrace the Darkness

God day to you all! Today the sun is out and my nose is running! How is it that when it´s finally nice weather, you get sick?! But on the other hand I don´t feel as bad staying in. So yesterday I started playing with the "Time traveler" collection from Prima. If you see my last video you know that I love the papers but I thought they where a bit dark for me.

And it was here I thought that I have to change my attitude... Insted of seeing the papers as "too dark" and hard to work with, I now see it as a challenge and trying out a new style.
 The dark theme comes again in the coloring. First I colored the way that I uselessly do and then I went over with "Black soot" to add contrast. I have to say that I love this darker type and I will keep playing with this technique. Stamp: "Wild Rose- Bella with friend" colors: Distressink & markers

I just love this moments when I get inspired by yourself and dare to try out new things. So I can tell you that I have allot coming up now that is not "me". But I just want to say thank you for reading my blog and watching my youtube, it mean so much to me, thank you!
Love Julia
