Hello, I am here to share with you a LO I did using the Beautiful Vintage Spring Basics Collection………


I found this cute photo on pininterest……


From the Vintage Spring Collection I used,1st of March,1st of March BS,3rd of March,7th of April,10th of March,& 9th of March BS. The chipboard is from Scrap Fx & the blooms are from I am Roses.Here are some closeups of detail……


I did my usual distressed stitched layers, I used some mesh in my layers. I covered chipboard circles with paper,then poked in holes to make them look like buttons. I used picket fence distress crackle on the wordlet,then rubbed in brown chalk & inked the edges…..


I used doily’s in my layers. I rolled up the corners,then poked in holes with my paper pierce,so that I could tie them into place…..


I used picket fence crackle on the stem of the twisted reed,once that dried I rubbed in green chalk. On the heads of the reed I used liquid pearls….



I also made a Thank you card using the Beautiful Fika Collection………….



Out of this collection I used Bjornbarskaktor,Bjornbarskator BS,Bjornbarsrutor,Vaffa m bjornbarssylt & Sockerkaaka. Here are another couple LO’s I did using Maja Design Papers for the Scrap Fx Blog……….


On this LO I used the Beautiful Walking in the Forest Collection…….


From this Collection I used Mountain Ash BS,Birdsong,Die Cut Sheet, & Die Cut Letters.BS. Here is another LO I did using Vintage Spring Basics & Vintage Summer Basics…………………………

You are a wonderful wealth of inspiration!

    I am speechless g=ho much inspiration you have brought us. Every LO is a masterpiece. The first one is absolutely amazing, I can not stop looking at it.
    The card looks as an album for sweet notes
    The third one , wow, what an idea for making heart and the flower bunch at the same time.
    and the forth reminds me about the pleasures living in the countryside

  • Jenny Grotherus says:

    I can not believe how productive you are. And everything you produce is high class! I just love those feathered little cuties. You scrapped them so well with grey and yellow. That family layout is so sweet and I love that design. Have to agree with Elena on the last one. It truely reminds of the benefits of the countryside.
    Even the card is gorgeous! You really can’t do nothing wrong. 🙂
