Goodmorning lovelies,

Wow I am so in love with the new “Vintage Romance” collection, that when I got my DT box two days back my head began to spin of ideas what to create next but first I sorted my beautiful papers. For today’s post I have 12×12 layout totally my style so it was very easy to create. Sometimes it’s hard to find flowers that will fit on my layouts because most of the time it’s slightly a different color which I don’t like. So on this layout I used handmade flowers made of the same collection! ūüėČ


When I saw Rachelle her layout last Saturday I was totally swooned by it {she is one of my favorite artists} I totally liked the idea of the pretty gems on that particular chipboard piece beneath her picture. That I really wanted to give her credit for it thank you for the wonderful idea Rachelle xox! The chipboards I used are by Dusty Attic their designs are so pretty and delicate that it totally fir this paper collection.



This collection totally lends itself to make romantic layouts of Paris. I have been to the city of love more then once and still I don’t have pictures of that time sadly. So I used a picture of a adorable couple that I got from Pinterest “Oh how I love that site” it has the most amazing ideas and beautiful pictures.

Hello Maja fans!

I’m finally able to share a layout I made of my little girl – it took awhile to get those photos printed! I was very tempted to use the Vintage Baby collection, but thought I would have a bit of fun with a collection that’s not baby-based.

Here is the page, made with the gorgeous pinks from Summer Crush:


I choose this particular sheet “Off to meet him” as the background color matches my photo’s perfectly. I also liked how Marie has drawn the images such that my photo and clusters can be placed in the centre without being too cliche or flat. My background is very simple painting with pink and brown, and I had added my stenciled lace after the painting so that I get a nice contrast of white against the colors. Usually my stenciled designs get lost in the colors I add so this is one way of letting them stand out.

Some close-ups:


My layers of papers, made from scraps from the same collection. I also have a piece of chipboard which I tucked in between and colored with various dimensional and distress paints.


My floral cluster to make it more feminine. Underneath is a spare die cut leaf which I had from a previous project made with Enjoying Outdoors.


And my title which I had colored with gelato and watercolor pencil to match that of the ladies in the corner.

And that’s all I have for today. Thanks for dropping by the blog!
