Kraft+ June challenge

Hi everyone!

Time to share a paper scrapbooking page that I made for one of my favorite challenges online - the Kraft+ challenge -using one of my to go products when I´m crafting which is kraft paper.

This month´s challenge is Kraft+One which means you have to use a kraft paper as base and then add just your favorite color.

My all time fav colors are PINK and then green and this time I went with pink:

Most of the things I used are from Studio Calico like all the papers, almost all the embelishments and the text stamps. The little wood bird, strings, paper doily and the washi tapes are of unknown brand.
The digital stamp in the shape of an owl is from Skaparkällarn and colored with Promarkers.
I did this on a little scrap meeting I had with friends and I had limited things to use so I´m really pleased with how this turned out!

Tomorrow is the last day of school before the summer holiday for my pupils. After that I have to work about three days next week and then I´m ON VACATION!!! Such happy days ahead!

Take care - hugs, Carina

This weekends new releases - and some sad news

Hi peeps! Time for some gorgeous new releases to play with!

On A Whimsical Adventure has a re-release this weekend:

There´s been new stuff added and of course you can buy them separately. I just like to show you the whole lot at the same time - and it´s the best offer too. The pic is linked to the store. I made this layout:

I´ve used a really old photo which I scanned with an app (which was rubbish if you ask me). Next time I´ll be using the real scanner.  I did some photo treatmend with Totally Rad and I think it got perfect for the colors of this kit.

Next up - the new releases over at The DigiChick is up since Thursday and I´ve been playing with these:

Once again I´m showing you the collections and as always you can buy them separately if you like.

The first one is made for May template challenge using at the flea market and the challenge template made by The Nifty Pixel:

Second one is made for the Give me space challenge using Wings Things:

Third layout is also made with Wings Things and a template from The Nifty Pixel: 

I gotta be honest and say that I´m really pleased with my layouts this time. It´s gonna be great to put them in my album later.

Now to the sad news: 

Yes, I´m afraid it´s true. Em has decided to step down from her designing and I will truly miss working with her wonderful and unique design. I use her templates all the time so now´s your opportunity to grab some - and her gorgeous kits as well.  Please click HERE to read all about it on her blog.

CSI case file #229

I always try to do the monthly major case file over at CSI and this time it looks like this:

I love playing with Em´s templates (and I´m not just saying this since I´m her team) and this is how my layout turned out:

Now, there are rules to follow when you´re doing the Case Files and here´s how I solved this one:
  • Colors: Used all fives
  • Evidence - least 3 clues: plain cardstock, stripes and arrows. I also added flowers, something loopy (the string) and phrase stickers.
  • Testimony: I went with the word BRIGHT which I felt suited the theme of the layout.
Finally - the kit I used for this layout is called Clean slate - a collab by Amanda Yi and Dream Big Designs, SSD. I did recolor some things to make it fit the challenge more.

I hope you got inspired to solve the case. These challenges are so much fun!

Hugs, Carina
