Hi there Maja friends!
Ingrid here today with a layout of my youngest daughter, Yiscka.
In 9 days she will be back from her adventure in the States.
She ended her internship and hopefully she will get her diploma this summer!
Pfffff….almost 7 months without my girl…it’s been hard but I couldn’t be more proud of her!
So this page is for her….made with love.


For this page I used the Vintage Baby collection.
I wanted to show you the versatility of the papers.
This baby collection is not only for little ones but also perfect for your older babies!!
Didn’t take the pink papers but I choose to work with the blue and brown ones.
The background was created with a mix of gesso and some of the Magic powder from 13arts. Made the mixture quite thick to get the crackle effect.
The splashes of ink in the background were made with Distress stain from Tim Holtz.


Had a wooden heart in my stash and just gave it a coat of gesso and some ink.
Also added some brown pearls.


Added these Prima flowers, one colored with some blue paint from 13arts.


This word, special, came from the bottom strip of the Ephemera cards sheet.


Those lovely butterflies are from Prima.
Printed and cut the title and outlined the edges with a brown fineliner.


Papers used:
Sweet little Prince
Journaling cards
Die cuts
Ephemera cards

Enjoy your day!

    So beautiful! Both the layout and your daughter..! 😉
    I love the wooden heart and the soft colors.. And the philosophical words. Great job – in so many ways.
