June kit 2013

Inspiration from Marie

I have a soft spot for polka dots, I must admit. This Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm paper made me excited as you can imagine!

To set the base for my photos and decorations, I used two differents stamps (Kaisercraft, not with the kit) and black ink. On top of that I added a Crafter workshop stencil and a template from SODAlicoius (brackets). I love using leftovers, and for this page I did use two small pieces of paper that was left over when working with this kit. Then I┬ábuilt the bottom layer of my little “stack” of embellishments. The card was glued onto the cork tag, and then I added the chipboard frame last.

The pink and orange flowers doesn’t come with the kit, but they mix well with the Swagger buttons that does. The cork arrows was made by cutting pieces from the Little Yellow Bicycle Cork banners. The small details┬áare the highlights in this page. With that I mean the washi tape from Freckled Fawn, the pink arrows from Studio Calico and the pink scrappers floss.

I must say I really, really enjoyed working with this kit. I haven┬┤t added many things from my own stash!
 

Inspiration from Marie Johansson

Hi Crazy Monday fans! The kits were all sent yesterday, so some of you will hopefully see your goodies today! In the meantime, here’s some inspiration from our June GDT Marie Johansson!

Totally cool

I used the spotty Humorous paper from the Fancy Pants Swagger collection for this page. The clouds on the top is a piece of the paper that had a little boy on it. I layered a piece of left over patterned paper and a baking tray paper under the photo of my cheerful son, to achieve a two dimensional effect.

The chipboard word “totally” fitted so well as titel, I just added the word cool with the Prima alphas on top of a chipboard banner. I added some yellow paint and stamps from my stash, as well as cut out stars and cork board & arrow pieces to keep the page fun and playful.

My name is Marie Johansson.┬áI live┬áin a small village in the northern parts of Sweden. I’ve been addicted to scrapbooking for more than 8 years now. I love that it makes me think and reflect about things that have happend to me and my family, and for me it is a way of relaxing after a hard days work as an Intensive Care Nurse.

At first when I found scrapbooking to be my new hobby, it was the colored and patterned papers that drew my attention. Then I started loving layering and now I┬┤m a complete mess….

I love playing around with paint, gesso and different mist/spray paints. I build layers with the different mediums and papers, journaling cards, stamping and other decorations. Even though I mess up my pages pretty bad, I try to keep some sort of structure of it all.

I currently design for a online magazine called Allt om Scrap, and also for Punky Scraps, The Color Room and Scrap & Music.

I am really  looking forward to my new creative adventure and hope that I can bring some inspiration back to you viewers.

Hey

This was the fist page I made after digging into the kit. I instantly loved the Debonair paper but actually found it a bit intriguing to use. To incorporate my design in the paper I stamped with a grid stamp over one side of the page, letting the pattern and the stamp blend a bit. Then I added a other piece of pattered paper, embellishements and a bit of stenciling with the stars and dots in green and orange ink. The chipboard embellishment as the title looks really cool I think. As a final detail I tossed a piece of green twine together and stapled it to the page. The page looks like it took a while to do, but honestly I think I made it in 20 minutes.
