Off Line

Meiden ik ben een poosje afwezig in verband met een buikoperatie. Niet leuk maar het moet even gebeuren. Ik moet een paar dagen in het ziekenhuis blijven en zodra ik weer kan zitten is het voordeel dat ik heeeeel veel tijd heb om lekker te scrappen :)

Just a short notice that I won´t be blogging some time because I am having surgery today. Have to stay in the hospital for a few days and the recovery will take some time too. But after that I will have plenty of time to do some scrapping :):)

ATC Wings

I joined a `wings` swap at the SA forum. I wanted to do something with Ingvilds Tutorial what a great technique with Heidi Swapp stamps, Liquid Applique and transparancies. And when I got the Pink Paislee Buttferly collection in the Scrapfever kit , it just all came together:

I kept this one for myself :):):) isn´t it a cutie!?

Big World, Lil´ Secrets for Fave Things

There´s a grat new challenge at “Fave Things” going on!! This time the challenge is about scrapping your favorite Photo! Please hop over en join in and create :) You can submit until may 29 and then another challenge is waiting for you!

This is my fave photo:
It was taken in the summer of 2004. We were camping and my 7 year old daughter and her 6 year old friend had sneaked out caus´ they didn´t want to shower and go to bed. My husband secretly took this photo, just before they noticed he was there. They were always full of monkey tricks! I think the photo shows that and that is why it´s my favorite
I used Basic Grey Curio papers for this layout. I love them but they´re quite difficult to handle. I handcut all the flowers from one sheet and put some together with hydrangeas, leaves and rosebuds.
I removed one layer of the large Primaflower in the left upper corner and colored it with some perfect pearls and sprayed glimmer mist on top.

Free as the wind

The other day I went to the beach with one of my 2 best friends. We had a great day, relaxing, shopping, doing nothing really...we were as free as the wind!!
Papers & flowers are from the Scrapfever scrapkit as well as the wooden butterfly. I colored it with heat embossing technique, using 3 different colors and finished with clear crackle paint. The wooden branch is from Kaiserkraft and colored with heat embossing technique as wel.  I marked the bird cage and the photo´s with stickles.  Combined with three different laces and the beautifull sketch I am entering this layout at Our Vintage Affair may challenge!

To nap ......

Again using the papers from the latest Scrapfever scrapkit I made this layout entering 2 challenges....
First is colorchallenge 190 at Colors Combo Galore with designers challenge to scrap your pet (or siblings) and the second is sketch 154 at Creative Scrappers. Thanks for the inspiration!!

I started with a base of colorcore cardstock black and grey, which I sanded first. Then I cut out 2 butterflies from the Butterfly Wings paper and then cut the edges with figure scissors. From the Dew Drops paper I cut some doilies and added them. The rose in the woodframe is cut from a leftovers.

The Kaiserkraft woodframe is sprayed with yellow glimmermist first and then stamped with Viva Decor background stamp. After adding the flowers, brown liquid applique around the photo´s, I added some glossy accents and diamond dust on rose and butterfly. Finished up adding the title with differents sorts of alfa´s and finilized curling up the edges and adding liquid pearls pewter all around. Most materials are available at Scrapfever.
