New Hip Kit Club Layout + Process Videos!

Hi! I was up on the Hip Kit Club blog with a new layout, but it all started with this video, showing how to create embellishment clusters-

And here's my layout, that took no time to make since the embellishing was already done-

And here's the video-

And I also uploaded a great haul from a new (to me) store, scrobby.nl, it offers great prices for Europeans customers, so check them out!

And last but not least, my 3rd installment for the crazy paper challenge I'm doing with Kitty Scrapper and 311vandal on YouTube. This one is crazy indeed!

I'll be back next week with more new projects! Thanks for visiting and have a great Sunday!

A week in Review- Lots of New Videos!!

Hi! I just wanted to write this post, cause there's been a lot going on this week on my YouTube channel, so I thought it would be convenient to summarize it a little, in case you missed something.
I posted another art journaling video on Saturday, this time I played with Ranger paint dabbers in lovely pastel colors. Here it is-

I am super excited to teach 2 workshops in Norway in September, here are some sneaks of what we'll be doing-

Continuing with the mixed media theme, I posted the first video for the Crazy Paper challenge Kitty Scrapper, 311Vandal and I are doing, where we are using some of our craziest papers! Check it out and check out their amazing videos too (all links are in the info box below the video on YouTube)

Another challenge I took on was using my Spectrum Aqua markers to create a double PL spread with the amazing Inkie Quill-

This week the June Hip Kits landed on my desk, and they are summery and gorgeous! Stay tuned for a fun little tutorial this weekend.
Here are the kits in all their glory-

I Am Challenge- Felicity Jane Blog

Hi! Today I wanted to share my take on the I Am challenge over on the Felicity Jane blog. The challenge is to make a layout about myself, which, I admit, is really a challenge for me. I usually document the here and now, we did this and that, but I thought it would be fun to play along!

I was inspired by the gorgeous Felicity Jane kits to pick some pretty bright papers, and here's my layout-

I was thinking about my title all day before I actually managed to get to my scrap table. I knew it was gonna start with I Am, but I had no idea what would come next. And then this sentence just got stuck in my mind.
I am living my (everyday) dreams.
And I feel like that most of the time :)
I am lucky, I am blessed, I am healthy, I have a family I adore, parents and grandparents that love and support unconditionally. I dream of bigger things, yes, most definitely, but most days I am happy to live my everyday life, to hear my daughter's laughter, to hold my husband's hand, to talk to my grandmother on the phone.
It's the little things. It's totally the little things. The little joys, the little moments. The home we create for ourselves, our safe place that is full of life and love.

And back to scrapbooking now ;) Here are some close ups-

And a last minute addition, that puffy rainbow just jumped on my page!

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with a week in review since there's been a lot going on this week! Have a great day!

July Hip Kit Club Reveal!!!

Yes, it's that time of the month again, my second favorite after kit arrival day ;)
The July Hip Kit Club kits have been revealed and are up on the website. Let's start with the main kit, shall we?

Summery and colorful, the July kit has some Crate Paper (always a favorite here!), October Afternoon and Elle's Studio goodies. I am so happy to get the Crate Poolside Chipboard sheet!! It's always my favorite embellishment. And those pop drops... Yes, please!!
Next is the embellishment kit-

Love these frames and washi from Simple Stories! And that stamp, just perfect for summer (Lazy afternoons is my middle name!!).

Color kit anyone? I love the new Distress colors of 2015, and we get two here! Twisted Citron ink is lime prettiness. Coral? Yes and yes. A perfect combo to go with the stencil, stamp and texture paste. The Ranger paste is one of my favorites and I'm out of mine so perfect timing!
Next is the Project Life kit, with exclusive cards designed by the talented Kim Watson. It matched the other kits perfectly, which works great for me, since I mix my pocket pages with my 12*12. And I can NEVER have enough puffy stickers, thank you very much.

There patterned paper kit includes all the papers in the main kit, and its a great affordable way to stretch your kit, not to mention saving you that tough choice of what side to use!

 Last but not least is the cardstock kit, that has a beautiful mix of colors this month, staples like white, vellum and craft, along with happy colorful yet usable ones.

 Which kits will I be getting for July? The answer is clear, all!! Love these summery colors, corals, soft yellows and great neutrals. Makes me think of summer!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

New Things Are Happening (With Videos!)

Hi! I'm trying to play catch up on my blog with my YouTube channel...
So I've posted a couple of new videos, the first is my very first art journaling process, and I'm so excited about it! I have been watching art journaling videos for a long time, and really wanted to try it myself. I got a large Dylusions journal a while back, but mostly ended up using it for trying out colors and such for my scrapbooking layouts. Well last week I went to the local art supplies store and got a new journal. A couple of days later I treated myself to some awesome Liquitex paint markers. With all those new goodies I felt inspired to give it a go! And here's the result-

And a close up at this lovely colorful mess-

And the video-

I have another one coming up probably during the weekend, I hope you'll enjoy!
Next I recorded a VR to Kitty Scrapper's tag video on her channel, answering some questions about my channel and my scrapbooking style-

Tomorrow I'll have a new video and layout using the May Hip Kit Club kits, here's a sneak-

Check out my YouTube channel tomorrow and the Hip Kit Club blog to see the whole layout. Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
