...and a quick card...

...also for the crop at Mollys.


One of the challenges at Mollys is scrapping vintage-style. I used to do that, a lot, but lately my style has been more clean and simple, and more towards mixed media. So getting myself into vintage-scrapping mode was a challenge, for sure. But I dug out some all-time favourites, G45 Steampunk Debutante, and as always, those papers almost scrapped themselves.
 I found the photo on the internet, because my stash of vintage photos is quite limited, and I wanted something really cute for this layout.
There's a lot of layering going on here. So much fun!

December means Tivoli

I made this layout for Riddersholm Design with their beautiful papers from A Christmas Story. It's about when we go to Tivoli in Copenhagen every year in December, to get in the right mood for Christmas. The layout is based on this month's sketch from Once Upon a Sketch.

Have a great Saturday, everyone!

That's exactly what I thought when this happened... I was sitting there, photographing the Christmas tree, when suddenly this madman jumped in front of it. I kept snapping, forgot all about it, and then later, when I flipped through the photos in the computer, and I came across the Christmas tree/madman sequence, I almost said it out loud. WTF? So of course, that had to be the title of this layout.
The layout is based on a sketch from the cybercrop at Mollys Scrapbooking, the madman happens to be my brother-in-law, and the papers are my absolutely last scraps of MME's All is Bright line.

Cybercrop at Mollys

It's December, Christmas has passed, we're on a break, and FINALLY I feel like I have a few moments to spare for scrapbooking! So I scrap, and lucky for me, there are two cybercrops going on in this country of mine at the same time. That's very good for the mojo.

First up, I'd like to show you a thing I made for a challenge at Mollys Scrapbooking. It's an altered matchbox, with texture-paste snow and mini-mini bookpage trees.
So, what do you think of pink as a Christmas color? It has been sneaking itself into my home these past couple of years, for instance in the shape of this pinkish Lisbeth Dahl ornament that I bought in Denmark last year. I used pink letter stickers and mini rhinestones for my altered matchbox, so it would fit into this new color scheme for Christmas.
Here's a clseup of the smallest tree. It's only an inch high, and made from a few pages from an old dictionary.

I've finished a few more challenges for both crops already, and I hope to be able to blog them all over the next few days, along with a couple of DT-assignments, but I do have to fight the rest of the family for access to the one laptop where I'm able to upload and process my photos, and since they are three to one, I don't get lucky that often.

See ya!
