Let your dreams take flight


Here's a card I made for this weeks post at Design in Papers. I made this card using the eBrush and Spectrum Noir markers, so much fun! Those butterflies are just lovely popping up from the page and flying away.

Here's a close up of the butterflies. Bright and colorful and with no effort. I think the coloring of the butterflies took me like 30 seconds tops, including the time it took me to switch markers. Then I cut them out but that was also very quick since I just cut the wings and stamped the rest on the card. I must admit I kind of love this card <3 The Flutterin by set by Lawn Fawn is so versatile, I'll come back for it many times I'm sure.

Bonus, a card I made for the 30 days of coloring challenge 2. Also using the Flutter by set.


Design in Papers arranged this really amazing event the last weeks. They invited Becky Higgins to Sweden to have classes in Stockholm and Gothenburg and I helped out a bit and took the classes myself. I got really inspired, she is really really nice. Just very sweet and attentive and so interesting to talk to and listen to. I really enjoyed it and feel very fortunate to have had the chance to do this, she does not travel much anymore and if you get the chance sometime I recommend it. She made me think about why I scrapbook, I really never thought about it before. It's just something I love to do. Anyways, I'm not scrapbooking much and I will stick to my cards because I love making them. But Project Life is really fun and I don't feel the need to blog my pages which I like. I do show almost everything I create here with you and it takes time editing and blogging so I like that I don't have to think about that and it really doesn't need to be perfect. It just needs to be done and that is what I need some days. Well, here is a picture of me and Becky, she was so nice taking pictures with everyone and signing everything you wanted. I got my scrap bag signed and it's kind of cool :) 


I'm very lucky to get to meet all these awesome creative people. Everyone is so inspiring and it is a treat to get to know a bit of the person behind the name. 

I'll be back in a few hours with a post for WOW, showing the new stamps I designed for them. I'm so very proud and happy about them! Don't miss it :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
