Love is writings in the sand and rosebuds in your hair. Sofiero has arrived.

Smell the roses while you walk through The Rose Paths of Sofiero. You can see the fairytale castle glimps in the background while you stroll around the castle’s world famous gardens. Walk through Princess Margareta’s Flowerstreet and be amazed by her sense of colours and gardening. Head on to The Dahlia District before crossing the garden down to the gates by the sea. Listen to the waves and enjoy the sun. A wedding couple passes by giggling. The summer is here to stay.

We have had an enormous response to our new limited collection Sofiero. It started shipping this Wednesday so make sure your LSS bring them in before they are gone. I think I’m not the only one who recognizes grandmother’s old wallpapers or finds that perfect rosebud paper that is so hard to find. One of my own personal favourites is A Romantic Picnic In The Park where Marie has handpainted the flowers with aquarelle. As usual she has put a lot of personality and heart into this collection and you can really see how much she loves Sofiero. If you haven’t been to those wonderful gardens I can highly recommend it.

I’m very honoured to present one of the very first Sofiero creations…sofiero

I just had to dig in on the rosebud paper immediately, I think it’s something quite extra and so romantic. This photo was taken during our honeymoon seven years ago.We were walking around the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar, completely alone. It was quite a special moment for us.sofiero_3For some reason I always end up in purple when I try to do pink. This is no exception.sofiero_2I have used mistable chipboards that I have misted with Glimmer Mist Tattered Rose and then distressed with Distress Ink Dusty Concord and Walnut Stain. The edge of the punched border has got the same treatment.sofiero_1

I’ve used four different types of lace on this layout to create a romantic look. I’ve also added some roses to the stitching. I hope you got inspired, and remember. This is a limited collection, once it’s gone-it’s gone! So make sure you get it before it’s too late!
