Time for an update

Today is my second last day of my summer vacation. On Thursday it´s back to business again, but hopefully I will be able to update the blog at least twice a week. That´s the goal at least.

This last weekend was the celebration of The Digichick´s 11th birthday and I had meant to blog about it, but there were so many other things that needed my time. There were challenges and prizes and I made a layout for a challenge called "The Big Splash":

I also want to show you my layouts with some of the new releases over at TDC - all pictures are linked to my TDC gallery for full credits:

Now I´m heading for the couch to bingewatch some episodes of  "The Blacklist".
Have a wonderful day/evening/night!

July challenge layouts for TLP

I was so happy that I managed to finish all the challenges at The Lily-Pad several days before the end of July. I love taking part in their challenges - they really spark my creativity!

Here are all seven of them - each one linked to the TLP gallery for full credits:









Besides the main challenges there are also other challenges like designer´s challenges and art journaling challenges. I actually joined the M3 challenges this month and made this:

In August I hope to make all of them again + adding the challenges for TDC and Oscraps too. Wish me luck!

Hello August!

Time for a new month and August usually is a really nice summer month here in the Northern hemisphere. A new month also means new challenges and I am once again doing an Art Journaling challenge over at TDC:

Just click on the image above and it will take you straight to the challenge where you can read all about it. Here´s my layout for the challenge:

And don´t miss all the other wonderful challenges during this month which you can find HERE.

I also have big news from one of my designers starting today that I can´t miss out on mentioning and that is the fact that On A Whimsical Adventure is returning to Oscraps! Just click on the pic below and read all about it:

New layouts!

One good thing with having a vacation and that the weather isn´t the best is that you get time to scrap! I made some new layouts for TDC - both CT and for challenges. The first two are made with a new collection by Aimee Harrison called Watermelon Love:

Here´s the collection:

The following three are made for TDC challenges. The first one is for the scraplift challenge and I had these sweet pics of my dogs that I wanted to use:

I used stuff from this gorgeous collection which I totally adore by Akizo Designs:

The second one is for the Tic Tac Toe challenge. I gotta admit that when I first saw the options for this challenge I saw that it was very patriotic and I didn't´t know if I was gonna do it. But then I got thinking and ended up doing a page about how much I wanna visit USA:

For this one I used an oldie but goodie kit by Veró:

The third is for the Title It challenge. The challenge was to make a title where the letter´s aren´t in a straight line so I made this about my new haircut:

For this I used a kit that I totally adore by et designs! Just look at this:

I also used the alpha:

I think that sometimes we´re so eager to look at what´s new in a shop and forget to look at older products. By doing that we are missing out on so many hidden gems. I changed my way how to find kits by sometimes just using the search engine in a store and typing in a word that I am thinking about at that moment. I found A LOT of goodies - trust me on that! Why don´t you try too?
