Hello,I thought that since it is the month of May & Mothers Day is a special day this month,I  decided I would do a LO for myself of my 3 boys when they were little. Sigurdur is now 31,Erlendur 27 & Tandr is 25. Time Flies!!!!! The Title is “My Gift” & I wrote ” My gift as a Mother is watching you boys growing up together”.


I used the Beautiful Vintage Spring Basics Collection on this LO………..


Out of this collection I used,3rd of April,3rd of April BS,6th of March,6th of March BS,7th of March BS,5th of April BS,6th of May, & Days to Remember…..the chipboard is from Scrap Fx. Here are some close ups of detail………


I did a lot of distressed layers in the heart & some stitching. Where I placed the scribble heart I used rock candy crackle,& on the outside of the heart I used, picket fence crackle, then rubbed in brown chalk, & glued down my repeated words. Once I glued down the scribble heart,I glued seed beads in the heart.. On all the chipboard pieces, I used picket fence crackle,rubbed in brown chalk,then inked the edges…..

I rolled up the corner & strips of paper,then punched in eyelets & tied the rolls with hemp. I glued the paper heart on to a scrap, I was working with,then put liquid accents in the holes & rock candy crackle on the solid. When that dried I rubbed in some blue & brown chalk into the crackle. I then glued down pieces of cheese cloth & pearl flourishes under the heart. I made the rolled flowers out of some of the scraps I was working with……


Another closeup of the heart…….


I covered chipboard circles with paper to make the buttons….


I love using the backside of the labels,they are the butterfly strips used on this LO…

Once I completed this LO,I decided to make Mothers Day Cards for my Mother & MIL………


From the Vintage Spring Basics Collection I used,8th of April,8th of April BS,11th of April & 6th of May….The chipboard is from Scrap Fx & the blooms are from I am Roses………


On this card I used 3rd of May,3rd of May BS,6th of May & Days to Remember. The chipboard is from Scrap Fx. I did another LO for the Scrap Fx Blog (I had to create my own background using one of their stencils). I used the Sommartider Collection & out of this Collection I used Klarbla himmel,Lunch idet grona,Hallonsorbert & Hallonsorbert BS. I call it my crazy LO,,I am not used to playing with stencils,I do so much paper layering that I don’t know where to fit the stencils in…………


I hope all you Mothers, have a amazing day, on your special day. Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
