New Stamps and cards!

1. I've been making lots of cards lately, even though I swore I'd never make cards a while back. In addition to the card I posted earlier this week, I made another one, with another Sassafras Lass patterned paper. Another online friend is going through a divorce and is feeling rather down on herself.

2. My husband's sister turns 17 on July 1st, so I used the same layout as I did on the "Fawnd of You" card I linked to *points*

3. I'd also like to show off a card I made my husband's grandmother who tuns 70 these days. Nothing too fancy, but I have a thing for polkadots (and he hates them).

4. Plus, I got some new stamps in the mail yesterday;

Wedding's Over - Left Are the Memories

As some of you might have heard, I got married last week to the man of my dreams :) Since this is a blog to show of what we scrap, pictures will be posted after I've scrapped them. I've ordered a 7 paged, cardboard wedding-album that has "bryllup" (nor. "wedding") cut out on one side. I just can't wait to get it!!

For now I only have a few pictures of the invitations and place cards we made for the occassion. Margrethe has helped me make them, and a number of friends have helped out as well, especially with melting the wax for the monograms; to all of you: Thank you so much!!

An online friend is currently admitted, so I thought I'd cheer her up a bit.

Greeting Card

Tomorrow, the other team member on this blog, Anne Liv, is getting married. After a few months of scrapping, it felt completely wrong to go to a store to get her and her beloved a premade greeting card. It was time to take it to "the next level", and make something myself. Scary, in a way, considering the "massiveness" of the situation. Either it'd turn out really good, or... I'd have to get a store-card and admit defeat, and - that was not an option.

So, last Monday, the day before my last exam this year, I thought it to be the perfect occasion. Procrastinator? Me?

I ekteskapet er ikke målet å tenke likt, men å tenke sammen.

"In marriage, the goal is not to think the same, but to think together".

All my best to the happy couple! :D

It's been two weeks since we updated this blog. For that I'd like to apologize - May + being students = exams and no time for scrapping. However, we have our last exams of the semester during the first days of next week, and have scrapping "booked" for Wednesday night.

Even though we haven't had time to scrap lately, we got some shopping done today. I don't know about you, but I love to scurry about scrap-stores. But, if you're reading this, I guess you do, too?

This post doesn't have any Layouts in it, but a few of today's finds...

Sassafras, which is a new brand to me, brought me this lovely retro-looking patterned paper. I got just one (Fawned of You), but I think I have to go back for a few more. Just in case...

I got a few others as well; Fruit Slice Land and Picadilly. They had some lovely Sassafras rub-ons as well, which I'm considering.

For some time now, I've been kinda in love with Making Memories' Noteworthy-series. After opting my choices while in the store, I decided to get just one of the papers, and try to make something good with it, maybe using one or two of the Sassafras stickers from the same collection as the papers above. The photo(s) to be used hasn't been decided on, but I hope to have something to show very soon.

I didn't show these in my last entry here, but speaking of the Making Memories Noteworthy-series, I made this layout with the last patterned paper I got. Flowers are from Prima, while the rub-on is, if I recall correctly, from Daisyd's.

The picture is one of our cats, Arya, during her first summer with us. She was around 3-4 months old, and out exploring the garden for the first time. Right after the photo was shot, she shot off chasing a bird, hence the journaling.

Lastly, I'd like to remind you to take a look at the on-sale paper. There will always be trends, even in the scrapbooking world, but trends and fashions are not to be followed just to be followed. I can only speak for myself, but I love peering at the on-sale papers, and I always find a treasure or two. Today I found several papers from Crate Paper. Originally looking for lime-colored paper to do a challenge, I turned the paper around and found this lovely polkadotted light turquoise color. Instead of picking up just one, I got two more, so that I can make a double layout. I found another similar paper, with a more lavender color. Unfortunately I found just one, and not two.

That's all for now, but we will update as soon as we have something new to show off! :)
