Good day everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend ? 🙂

My weekend has been great, I’ve helped a friend with making place cards, decorated small and large candles to the late night hours. But today is a new day and this day I whant to spend with my family.

Imagine that it is already my turn to share one of my projects, made with paper from Maja Design. One thing I really like is to make something I’ve never done before and this time I have really gone beyond my comfort zone.
 I have made a LO, one that is 8×8 by build the frame / plate with thick cardstock. This I have done by cutting out two squares that are 8×8 and glue them together, then I cut out two squares with holes in and glue on the top. All the sides and edges are decorated with patterned paper, I used Distress Ink Ground Espresso for the inking. In the corners there are old spikes and the text “See the World – Live Everyday ” on the bottom of the frame is Rub Ons from Tim Holtz.

I have in a long time wanted to make one little rough project with the rough sheets from the new collection Vintage Romance. The sheets I’ve used is :

Forget Me Not, Wedding Day, Honeymoon forward and back side and the images is taken from ephemera.


The sheets that I have used under the images, I have torn the edges, befor I them. The design is build ​​up with 3D foam pads.

When I made the LayOut, I decided to try to get many different details, but would work well together. In the bottom corner, I have two different wood from Wycinanka, one is a hand that I have embossed with Distress Embossing Powder – Walnut Stain, Ranger Embossing Powder Black and some Gold powder. The other wood I ‘ve used is one wheel that is embossed with Aged Copper from Stampendous .

The other details are a paper hat that I’ve clipped from the paper called He ‘s my Man. On the same sheet is also a small bow, so instead of using the one in paper I created one in brown ribbon .

Under the details there is a rusty metal plate and beside it, there is a dark brown twine under the Images.

In the top corner to the right, I have small spikes, rusty metal plate, metal from Prima which is embossed with Walnut Stain from Distress and Gold Embossing Powder. Here you can see more of the thread, which is under images and the cars that are on the side.

On the other side again, there are many more details. I have used the inside of a clock, vintage cars, metal from Prima, a large plate with rust, spikes and the black arrow is Rub Ons from Tim Holtz .

On several places I’ve created small pennants that I have placed in large cracks, under and over the images, I’ve did that just to add something extra. In addition to the large arrow, I have also used a smaller arrow.

The idea behind this LayOut is to take the opportunity while you have it, take advantage of the opportunities while you are young and before the clock getting away from you. Not least have fun on the journey, meet new people, take a chance after chance and share the moments with those  you love. We only live once, why not explor the days to maximum, as long as we can do it? 🙂 In other words, this LO you give to someone you like alot and the one you have experience the world with.
