December 2014 Challenge 20 A Frosty Winter Mood Board by Anna Komenda!!

Hi everyone, 
It´s the 16th again and that means I can share my "Scrap Around the World" layout with you all. This mood board was so inspirational for me thank you so much Anna.
Let´s have a look:
Gorgeous right? I knew exactly which papers I was going to for this layout the newest "Altitude" collection by BoBunny. I really loved to see the touches of red this mood board has.
This is what I have created using this magical mood board. 

Hello Winter:  
The picture I used is from two winters ago when we had a really cold winter with lots of snow and ice. It´s my hubby and sweet son.
Let´s look a little closer:




I hope I inspired you to play along!!!
This is what said on the blog.

Hello everyone!  Can you believe it's our last challenge in this year already?!
Where has the time gone?!?  Today we welcome you to our December challenge -

Anna created a snowy but also warm & cosy mood board for you -  in her
signature fresh colours.   There are so many ways this mood board can
 inspire you!  Of course you may choose to be inspired by the colours -
 one or all of them ... the icy blues, crisp whites, beige & warm red
as well as dark chocolate brown.  Or how about the patterns?

Chevrons, hearts, doilies & snowflakes!
Look at the beautiful textures - tongue & groove boards,
twisted strings, feathery leaves, crochet, patchwork & glitter!!
The fun quotation could inspire you alone...Or the confetti on the cupcakes...

Guest Designer for ***LemonCraft*** papers by Anna Zaprzelska


Hi everyone, 
So glad to see you back again.
Today I would like to share with you my works for my guest designer spot over at: 
A while back they had a design team call and I wasn't chosen to be on the team but I got a guest spot this month. Anna her papers are a delight to work with I really love the dimension the papers have. She also has a whole bunch of uber cute embellishments to work with like lace, buttons, brads, die cuts, and flowers. If you want to see my work you can also visit the LemonCraft blog ==> here <==
Now for my projects first I would like to show you a layout:  

On this Day: 

This is a picture of my cousin on the left who is my age {36} with her beautiful teenage daughter {19} yes I know she was very young when Nadine was born. 
I miss them like crazy but I am glad that there is Facebook to see what they are all up to!
This layout design just popped up into my head so this was a layout I made within two hours while normally it takes me almost eight hours for just one layout. 


The flowers with the blocks on them are handmade but the brown one is in the flower pack.
On this layout I also used a bunch of Imaginarium Designs chipboard. 
Like the handwritten words and the cute little branches. 


Don't you just love this pretty pink lace I got to work with. 
And look at the cute clock button below it's adorable.


The package Anna send me is totally up my ally with all pink and girly, thank you so much Anna loved working with your pretty papers. 
Now for my second layout I used a picture of myself during my wedding day back in 2012 with my niece "princess Emmelie"hihi that's what I call her.
On this picture she was still smiling but later on she was crying like crazy. 

Capture Today:  

You know what's weird this design just popped into my head to I think it's because of the papers.
But this one took me longer then two hours. 
Let's have a closer look: 



The hugh fabric flower is also handmade and the little paper ones too I just couldn't stop making them but I had to because I ran out of paper grin....


For my third project I made a mini album {it's a Imaginarium Designs chipboard book} 
I covered it all with the beautiful papers and stitched and distressed the borders.
I think I am going to use it as a gift to my sister in law to put pictures in from her three little girls.

Mini Album: 

When I looked at my picture on my phone I saw the ribbon in front of that cute little button so I quickly made another picture without the ribbon being in front of it. But then it became very dark outside and I had to take closeups too, oh boy do I hate winters.


Now you see that pretty button. 
My closeups are a little different in color because of it getting dark so fast.



Last up is my card.

Thinking of you everyday:

Now let's have a closer look:



For all these projects I used the pretty "House Of Roses"collection.


Thank you so much for your visit today I wish you all a very creative week.
And thank you so much Anna for having me as a guest designer this month.
Love

My social media post for ***BoBunny***


Good morning my lovely blog readers.
Today I would like to show you my two cards I have made for BoBunny with the beautiful "Rose Cafe"collection. The first card I made for my parents in law! On the 21st of November they were married for 47 years and we all went on a little family get away that weekend.

Happy 47 Anniversary:

I so enjoy the pretty blues and bright yellows in this collection! You all know I love stitching and when I can't my project doesn't feel complete. 
Let's have a closer look: 



And for my second card I went the opposite direction with the warm colors {greens, dark red and pink} in this beautiful "Rose Cafe"collection.

Cherish Life: 

For both my cards I tore some papers I had left over from a layout I did about 2 weeks ago and layered on another left over sheet. 
Let's look closer: 



Maybe you have seen these cards go by on facebook, scrapbook.com, pinterest & twitter since this was my social media post on the 30th of November. Did you already use this collection???
 Have a wonderful Sunday!

Love

"Wintergirl" guest designer for ***Maja Designs***


Hi everyone, 
I was so super excited that I was ask to be one of the seasonal girls at Maja Designs blog.
I am the "Wintergirl"WOOT WOOT.....even though I don't like winter that much {brrrr so cold}I do have a bunch of winter pictures because I love the looks of the oh so peaceful snow.
When I got my Maja Designs papers I got started right away the quality of the papers are so good you can give them a very shabby look!
I made two layouts a thermometer & a card.

Special wintertime dreams: 
I am a sucker for layers, sprays, pasts, stitching and chipboard
I had so much fun making this layout the pictures make me happy too.
Let's have a closer look: 


And for my second layout I went all pink so it would fit my coat on the picture.
The flowers are and handmade with the papers but the pink flowers are BoBunny 

#Happydays:
And again I layered a bunch of papers on top of each other
Lets look closer:


On all of my projects I used a variate of Lindy's Stamp Gang products my new addiction.
For my OTP project I decorated a thermometer I bought with 50% discount at my local scrapbookstore it was such a fun OTP to decorate wow.

Christmas Greetings Thermometer: 
now for some closeups: 


For my last project I made a card: 

Merry Christmas Card: 
On this card I used my favorite Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces......
Here are some closeups:

Thank you so much "Maja Designs" for having me as a guest I loved creating this all for you! You can also visit the blog by clicking on the Maja Designs in the sentence above.
I also want to thank Maja & Camilla for making this happen....

I hope you all have a wonderful & creative weekend.
