For the love of Game of Thrones AND new blog look!

As you can see I remade my blog´s appearance using  "Oh Happy Days" by Mari Koegelenberg which you can find over at Pixels & Co. I also used a fun alpha by the Quirky Heart in my header. It´s always exciting with a new look and I hope you like it!

OK - over to something totally different. I really, really love Game of Thrones and I´ve seen all four seasons. I think it´s one of these rare times that I watch something before reading the books - I´ve read book 1 and 2 so far. You might even say I´m a bit obsessed with it - LOL! For starters I begun buying POP figures - one is Jon Snow and the other one is Yoda (from Star Wars -another one of my life long love when it comes to movies):



But you didn´t come here to see POP figures - you´re here to see some layouts right? I bought a kit called Thrones by ViVa Artistry which you can find at SBG and I just can´t stop! Here´s the layouts I´ve done so far:





 Brace yourself - Winter layout is coming! Mohahahahaaaa....

New Project Life weeks from me

Wow! TWO posts in one day! Don´t get used to it peeps though... ;)
But I really wanted to separate the two subjects today. This one is gonna be all about my paper Project Life. I´ve finally photographed some new weeks:






I feel so good about being at week 21 for this year (and shhhh - don´t mention all the weeks left for 2013).  Something I realized reflecting over my PL is that the journaling really do matter to make it more personal. It does´t have to be much - just something about the week that´s passed besides the photos - and I´ve made that my new goal to get that done. 

I also decided NOT to keep all my pretty stuff in their boxes but to use them instead! I´m also struggling with finding a balance when it comes to embellish the pages. I still think that the story is more important than the stuff I decorate with and this is how I roll. This is not a static thing - just like life itself. I realize that the pages won´t look the same, that I won´t be able to stick to a color theme etc but to use a phrase that I love from one of my true inspirational girlies Ali Edwards: That´s ok.

I also try to share what I used on my pages and that´s really the deal! I really just grab things as I go and mix all kinds of stuff but here´s some....
  • Loads of stuff from Studio Calico monthly Project Life kits
  • Midnight Edition - Becky Higgins Project Life (Paislee Press Designs)
  • Simple Stories DIY
  • Stamps from Pysseldags, Ali Edwards
  • Homemade flairs and cards
  • Printables by Mari Koegelenberg (Pixels & Co) and Juno Designs (The Digichick)
  • Washitape of all kind of brands
Hope you got some inspiration - and I really, really would LOVE to hear what you think!
xoxo



Life in color

Yesterday - yep I´m a day late - Ju Kneipp released a new collar with Traci Reed called "A future so bright" which is on sale this weekend:


And man are there some bright colors here! I made this layout with it:


Another designer I work with is Juno Designs and she´s having a big sale over at The Digichick since she´s moving to a new store August 8th:


Be sure to check it out - especially if you do pocket scrapbooking! She has loads of awesome stuff for that which prints perfectly!

Old but yet new

Confusing title today? Here´s the explanation:
Since May I had these two layouts sitting on my hard drive waiting to see the light of the scrapbook internet world, but due to several reasons the designer - Laitha´s Designs - wasn´t able to release her kit until NOW. So here I give you Café in Paris:


... and all the wonderful add-ons:


And yes- you can buy them all separate if you want to, but I´m a bit lazy today since it´s +32 degrees Celsius today outside! Now, how about showing those poor layouts that´s been sitting on my hard drive for such a long time:



Now I´m gonna sit here by the fan and try to do something.....Hope you all have it great!
