Picture phat post

Quite a while since I posted here last. This is what I've been up to since:

The most cozy drink ever

I'm not very good at updating this thing, am I?

Well, I don't get to do a lot of scrapbooking these days, and to be frank, I'm not very inspired or motivated. But, at the end of February I signed up for a 6 month subscription to Little Red Scrapbook. I got my first kit last week, and made this layout. You get a lot of paper and embellishment for just $22 (+ shipping, of course, which is a bit to Norway, but still cheaper than kits from Norwegian stores, and bigger kits, as I can see).

I never thought I'd be too fond of those turquoise Thickers, but seeing them on this paper, and the contrast it creates... They're great! I also finally got to use one of the denim flowers from Prima that I got a few months ago. This is also the first time I try rhinestone embellishment, and I have to admit that I like it quite a lot.

And yes, this is also another shameless lift. Hoped it'd spark my inspiration. Alas, it didn't.

A year later

I don't have a definite date for when I first started scrapbooking, but it should be about a year ago. Thought I'd post my first layouts here, just for fun.

Sunday Challenge

A Norwegian scrapbooking forum sometimes have challenges on Sundays, and today was one of those days. A sketch was provided, and here is my interpretation of it :)

First Love

Another end of a month, another prompt from Gutter Girlz. This time I was more than a little inspired by Nikki's layout, as you can see.

To a Wonderful Husband

Starting a new medication, I'm having a setback. I know I'm not easy to be around when the depression is at its worst, and the worst thing is that sometimes I can't stop myself.

But, through it all, the one person who's always going to be there, is my husband, and I think he deserves a little attention right now.

This card is for him. He doesn't know about it yet, but I hope he'll like it.

Botched attempt

Last week I came over the call for applications to the Spring Design Team at 2 Sketches 4 You. I printed out the sketches, and did one the same day, sure the deadline for application was Midnight Monday the 24th. Of course, there is no Monday 24th this month. I'm on new medication and it's really messing with my concentration; I'm struggling with writing, spelling and reading. There are days I don't consider myself safe behind the wheel. Not good.

Anyway, the nice girls of 2 Sketches 4 You wrote back, letting me know I would not be considered as the deadline was a day ago, but that my cards were really good!

So, here they are;

I got some new stuff, from all the nearby stores, and some online. It's weird how paychecks disappear so quickly!

Anyway, I just love the Detours: Walk in the Park from October Afternoon. I can't explain it, but I seem to have developed a special liking for cutesy patterned papers (I also love Sassafrass Lass). The other papers used are Creative Imaginations Teal Note Book and Dream Street's Unique Boutique - Secondhand Stripe. Bazzill background is French Vanilla and the ribbon is from Kort & Godt. Can't remember where I got the button... I used my Slice for the die cut, and Making Memories' Tiny Alphas, another favorite of mine.

New hair!

My husband got his hair cut yesterday, after keeping it long for over a decade. Of course, this was an event that had to be documented.

Full list of products used can be found here.

Rebecca 9 years

My niece is 9 years old tomorrow. She loves horses, and doesn't like pink, so this was what I came up with.

Always, forever Chic

I'm a big shoe-lover, and this layout shows that. I took the picture, in the car, on our way to a wedding last summer.Papers from Basic Grey and Making Memories. It was a great way to try Slice for something else than Holiday designs! Stamps from Autumn Leaves. Prima, Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp thrown in there for good measure.

Still Hurting

Gutter Girlz: Dec. 30th, Prompt 14

I did Gutter Girlz' prompt, and I'm glad I did. I'm not good at being honest with myself, so this layout might seem like nothing more than a cliche. In a way, it's not, but it's a step forward.
