Allsorts - Sentiment

This week at Allsorts Brenda is challenging us to put the sentiment or quote as a focal point on our creations. I used a computer generated sentiment (you can download it for personal use under my Freebies tab) on a vintage book page and some red cardstock and ribbon. All distressed with Antique Linen.

Allsorts - use acetate

Morning,
this week I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts and I want you to use acetate on your creation. That transparent, plastic material you can use to make gorgeous boxes, packages or details on your projects.

I made a gift box using the 1935 hat stamp digi image from Rick St Dennis, coloured with Distress Markers, I love the elegant feel to it!

Happy news!

Så himla glad man blir då!!! Har fått den stora äran att få ingå i designteamet för Scrap och Ting så nu ser jag ivrigt fram emot att första DT-paketet ska dimpa ner i lådan.

I'm really thrilled cause I have been chosen as one of the DT members for Scrap och Ting, and now I'm eagerly awaiting the first DT parcel to arrive :)

SFTW - Butterflies

Morning all,
time for a new challenge at Stampin for the Weekend, themed butterflies.
And since we are sponsored by Saturated Canary I chose one of her wonderful images to colour for the project. I masked away the suitcases she's sitting on - artistic freedom ;)

Order is restored!

I don't know about you, but in my bag everything is a mess. I can hear the phone ringing but I know that I'll never find it before it stops ringing - it's like the closet of Narnia in there...
Well, maybe now I have a shot at finding my keys, my purse, my lipstick cause I've made a bag insert out of an old cereal box. Covered in pretty fabric and with pockets on the outsides. I'd say I have a fair chance at least ;)

Allsorts - stitching

Schools start soon here so it's back to work on Monday, but let's not worry about that today cause it's Saturday and time for an Allsorts challenge. The theme is stitching and my contribution is a kids case altered to suit as a money collector for our concerts with Snowflakes.

Apothecary jar

Morning,
the weather is amazing today but before I toss myself in the sun chair on the patio I wanted to show you my latest items.
This is the start of an apothecary jar, template here:

 

and this is the finished creation:



I am really pleased with it. Paper is Magnolia and then I just used some liquid pearl White opal and some lace, no other decorations necessary :).

Challenges:
Simon says - anything goes
Live and love crafts - warm or cool colours (I went with a cool colour)
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Onestopcraft - keep it simple
Addicted to stamps and more - anything goes

And I also took this storage thingy from IKEA - so not my style - and covered it with mod podge and some fabric, lots prettier now :).




Have a gorgeous day all!

Allsorts - Photo inspiration

At Allsorts this week we have a photo inspiration for you. It's always very nice to see how people interpret pictures and how they create by them.
I saw the candy and figured that a candy box would be suitable so I made one :). The paper roses got extra shabby with the help of white acrylic paint and some gold glitter.

The box template is called Tucked Away and is from Lauren Meader, but I think it's retired.
