I’m posting earlier this month… ‘cos I really wanted to show you the new collection from Maggie Holmes – Shine! And also the new collection from Pink Paislee – Cedar Lane. I almost never ever stick to only one collection… don’t know why! I really like to bring collections together and make my own kits. And it gives you a new look… sometimes you find items that match that no one else thought about! 😀
In this post I will also highlight my favorite products right now! Some from Shine, some from Cedar Lane and some from completely different brands and collections!
For this layout I combined my two favorite pieces of the Shine collection. The big letters in gold and the floral paper! My favorite technique right now is fussy cutting. I cut apart almost every floral paper I get my hands on!!! The background paper for this layout is from Cedar Lane (Riverside Lane).
The big letters spell the word “DU”… as in “You” in English. I really wanted to make something in my own language and “You” in Swedish is one letter shorter! On the text strips I wrote things about my daughter I love right now. I tried to describe her in short sentences, both some positive and some negative! 😀
Find what makes you happy
For my second layout I wanted to do something different! A clean layout with a lot of pattern paper! I felt like I really needed to use the paper with the zebras. The colors on that paper are so vivid! I bought two of the ephemera pack… ‘cos die cuts are the type of decoration I often use.
Some gold splatter, some stickers and some enamel dots and the layout was complete! I really liked to use strips of text so I used it here too. Here I described how my daughter always copies what I do…. but she doesn’t always get it right! 😀
Happy Little Moments
Sooo… fussy cutting! Again! 😀
Here I took another floral paper and cut it apart! The wood grain paper is from Dear Lizzy Documentary! For the plus signs on the layout I used the stamp from Amy Tangerine. The plus sign is almost a perfect match for the plus signs on the paper from Maggie Holmes!
Here I also used the roller phrase stamp from Maggie Holmes! It is super cute! Stamps really well and I love the phrases and the fonts!
For this layout I started with the paper with the blue hearts. The photo is from a night when my daughter couldn’t sleep… so I wanted the colors to be a bit dark… but not sad. Happy dark! 😀
I tried to use as many squared decorations I could… and to make it less stiff I added the big “S”, some flowers and a lot of hearts from the pack of glitter stickers. Some shapes, like squares, are more difficult to use… to me! So I have a lot of square shaped decorations in my stash! 😀 😀 😀
… and Cedar Lane! How I love the colors of that collection… they worked so good together with all my recent photos. I loved all the wood grain and the dark brown. For this layout I also used the stamp from Amy Tangerine. And… of course I cut apart the floral paper Town Square! For the title I used letter stamps from Freckled Fawn and a word thicker from WRMK Wildflower (… and I really can’t understand how they can still be in the shop! Buy some!).
(“Sjukling” is a nice Swedish word for someone who is ill… )!
One more with a mix of Cedar Lane and some pieces of Shine! Yet again, I wanted to do something different and found this quote on pinterest. I think the quote is so perfect for my daughter and her crazy ideas!
I wanted to take beautiful pictures of my girl and the autumn leaves. But no… she wanted to taste them! And yeah… I think these photos are funnier than most of the other autumn photos I’ve seen! 🙂
… the little fox is my absolute favorite from Cedar Lane and he needed to be in the spotlight!
Hope you liked my blog post this month! Hurry up and buy some nice products! Everything from Shine is a must! 😀
Until next time!
