"Heaven Sent"

Hi there!
What a lousy weather here in The Netherlands.....I can`t believe we are in the middle of May and it`s still 10 degrees....awful, actually!
To brighten up my thoughts I created this layout. It`s a very easy one ...took me an hour and a half.
I used white cardstock and stamped the background with Prima "Build-a-page" clear stamps. The rest is so easy that I don`t even have to explain what I`ve done :-)! Here is the page and  two close-ups!








Have a great Wednesday!

New Layout

Hi there!
I made recently this layout using the awesome sketch from  Ingvild Bolme . It`s my second time using a sketch in my scrapbooking career so I have to learn a lot...lol. I really hope I came at least a little bit close to this great sketch. I love circles so it was an easy choice to get busy and do something out of it! Here`s the inspiring sketch of  Ingvild Bolme:


And this is my take on the  Ingvild`s  sketch:


To make this page I used white cardstock and a sheet of double sided pattern paper. I used Martha Stweart`s border punch and I did some masking with it as well! As always I hand-stitched. I used three different brands clear stamps...."Inkadinkado", "Prima" and "Artemio! Thanks for the sketch, Ingvild!
Here are two close-ups:



I wish you a great weekend and very Happy Mother`s Day!!!!

The Color Room

Good Morning!
Finally I had some time last night to play with the awesome color palette at  The Color Room  ... I used color palette # 4 to make this LO. This is how this challenge turned out through my eyes :-)

The background paper is the only patter paper I used. I hand-stitched everything on the page. I used "My Mind`s eye"  rub-ons for "I adore everything about you", "Naturally pretty", "I love you" and the hearts` border. The flowers were colored with Glimmer Mist....
TIP:
I used a thin cord to make the circles in the middle and then I stamped them.
I used "Inkadinkado" clear stamps !


After I stitched the small circles I stamped them so they can match the flowers! For the matting of the photo I used cardstock. I embossed it and distressed it so it`ll match the background paper. Then I hand-stitched again :-)

Well, this is my take on  The Color Room  palette # 4 :-)
Hugs,
