Pocket Scrap Norway challenge, Sodalicious and Studio Calico

Surprise! Surprise! Here I am with a blog post and it´s not even Sunday!
First of all I wanna show you my Project Life page for week 40 that I did for a challenge over at Project Life Norway. You had to use washi, alpha and stickers AND the colors orange, yellow and brown. This sounded like a perfect way to start the month of October so I jumped ahead in my album and finished that spread first:

This might qualify as a hybrid project since I used a digital kit called Spooks by Deena Rutter (which is available over at Pixels & Co) for my title card and the journaling card. Do I have to tell you that is gorgeous? Besides that I used a lot of different stuff like alpha from Tim Holtz, stamps from Ali Edwards and Studio Calico, kraft paper, an old sticker by Elsie Flannigan, washitapes and fuzzy cut elements. The nice collage in the top right corner is made with the new Project Life app by Becky Higgins and then I added text with the Rhonna Farrer app.
It turned out pretty ok don´t you think?

I hope you´re all in the mood for a lot of pics now since I got two happy parcels in the mail today. One from Sodalicious and one from Studio Calico.

This was the first time I ordered from Sodalicious - which is a Polish online scrap store. I´ve been lurking around there a lot drooling over all their gorgeous stuff and finally I got around to order something. Don´t you just love the feeling when open a package and it looks like this:

 Here´s what was inside:

What you might not see is that there are actually four different alphas in different colors and three different scrapbook papers in a wonderful thick quality. I fell in love with that wooden stamp that looks so old fashioned!

My parcel from Studio Calico was a BEAST since I ordered two add-ons and a stamp kit plus my ordinary PL monthly. So here are all the pics of my goodies:

The first look:

I just can´t wait to get working with all these gorgeous new stuff that´s hoarding the craft table right now! I´m such a happy girl! <3 p="">

DIY for Halloween

Today I´m blogging over at Pysseldags about my homemade Halloween jewelry. I used stamps from Pysseldags, black StazOn and some shrink plastics. What do you think about these?

I made some earrings and a charm necklace for the upcoming celebrations at my school. If you wanna know more- please check Pysseldags blog.


Angelle Designs has released a new digital kit with some amazing colors:

I made this layout:

There´s so much going on at work that I totally missed some new releases by Mari Koelenberg:

I used three of them and came up these:

I really, really hope things will slow down a bit so I get more time to update my blog. Thanks for stopping by and have it GREAT!

Halloween tag, digital layouts and then some....

Hi again!
Let me show you some of the things I´been up to lately. First of all since it´s a new month there´s been a new Scrap Pack release over at Scrap Stacks and did I love this or what:

With loving it I´m not referring to that my layout with made the preview cover but the fact that I love the collection of kits and templates this time.

Here are the layouts I´ve made so far with the goodies:

The lovely Mari Koegelenberg also made some new releases this week and I still think you can grab it for a special price right now:

...aaaand my layout:

To top it all today I´ll show my Halloween-tag that I made yesterday for today´s blog post over at Pysseldags. So I went from this:

....to this:

It feels like ages since I used my distress ink pads, not to mention how long it´s been since I colored stamped motifs. The bats and the Halloween word collage stamps are from Pysseldags and the girl is from Magnolia (a real oldie). To tell you the truth I´m not that a big fan of Magnolia´s stamps but I got some since I ran a scrapbook shop. I colored her with ProMarkers and then I used the Antique Linen distress ink pad to make it look the pumpkin glows.
It was really FUN to work with the distresses and to use my ProMarkers again so there will be more of that stuff in the future. 

Beside all this crafting I made buns yesterday for the Cinnamon Bun Day here in Sweden - who doesn´t love buns??

Then I just HAVE to share that I totally love the new Project Life app by Becky Higgins! Especially when I combine it with Rhonna Farrer´s wonderful app it really makes scrapping on the phone possible. I just made this about our little date night yesterday:

So if you don´t have it I strongly recommend it to you. Now - I have an iPhone so I have absolutely no idea if there is one for the androids out there.

Have a wonderful day!

Art Journaling Halloween style

I swear I live in the wrong country since I totally LOVE Halloween! I really, really hope that it gets bigger here too.... I´m sure decorating my house this coming week so I can really enjoy it! The trouble is finding stuff here in Sweden though...

I promised you yesterday that I´d show you my blog post for Pysseldags which is so much Halloween and I can promise you that there´s more to come:

I use an old book I bought at a thrift shop for my art journaling and can you believe that it looked like this before I got started:

I always glue a couple of pages together and then I use ModgePodge or gesso to seal the paper before I get messy.

If you wanna get all the details you can find them here at Pysseldags

Today I also made some new layouts with new releases from Scrap Stacks and Mari Koegelenberg but I can´t show you those quite yet. 

My plans for the evening is watching Bones on tv with my hubby who always gives me a foot massage this time of the week. No, I´m not joking! That and a glass of wine just to say hello to a new job week.

Hope you all have a nice day/evening!
