Denne layouten ble også til på oppdragspausekvelden min... Carta Bella Hello Again

Energien er ikke tilstede for tiden så derfor blir det sparsomt med layouter(har riktignok over 20 layouter som kan blogges i løpet av høsten.. )skulle ønske det var flere timer i døgnet. Satser på at stresset slepper om noen uker.

Dette erforøvrig en layout hvor jeg opplevde en lite krise, mistet maaasse glaze over den, men det ser vel ingen nå?

Denne sommeren har gått i oppdragets tegn, men har nå sneket meg til å lage noen layouter til noen utfordringer, har blitt noen måneder siden jeg har rukket å gjøre det.  Har over 20 ubloggede layouter så det kommer masse i bloggen utover høsten. Noe må vente ganske lenge før det kommer....

Dette er til en MME utfordring (se skisse nederst)

Her er utfordringen, har bare droppet å ha to bilder.

Har først og fremst brukt serien Cut & Paste.

Quick and easy card with leftovers - My Creative Scrapbook

I made this little tutorial with the August Limited Edition kit featuring Kaiser Craft for My Creative Scrapbook. 

I guess you are not the only one that face  either one of this:1) lots of scraps but not really wanting to throw them away and 2) you are in a hurry, but really wanting to make something. Well this is the project for you.

You start up with your kit leftovers. This is what was left of my August Limited Edition kit before I started the project of making a small 4x6 card.

Tak out your papers

Start by cutting your leftovers into different widths and tear the edges of the side of the papers, not necessarily as straight as possible, uneven will be just as fine.

Start with the darkest paper and layer the cards on top of each other, and you can see that two of the smaller pieces go in the middle.  Do not use much adhesive underneath, and why I will show you in a bit.

You want to add more layers, I have used the round Artisan and taken the advantage of its flexibiliy and put pieces on the upper part of the card and the lower part. Since there are no straight edges it works great. Then add some border stickers in different sizes and tuck then between the layers.  Now you will see why it's a good idea to not adhere the layers to tight, otherwise you will have not have space to tuck the extra borders in between.

As you can see  I have cut the pieces of the paper much wider than the actual card so the last step before adding more is to cut the edges off.

Finish project. Here I have added the a flower, the stickers are both adhered using 3d foam squares to add a little extra depth.

Here's our August Limited Edition kit:

We invite you to join us and experience the possibilities that our coordinated monthly kits offer. To purchase a kit, please visit our website, here.

Klar ferdig gå - Papirdesign

Tenk, tiden går fort, den 19 august begynnte vår 6 åring på skolen. Han har blitt litt kjent på skolen allerede siden SFO som han begynte på for et par uker siden er i samme lokaler som skolen med samme inngang og rom så han er ikke supernervøs for skolestarten. Sekken henger klar i gangen, klær funnet frem.

Har laget en side med en bildeserie fra i sommer (tips til meg selv neste gang - sjekk en ekstra gang hvilken rekkefølge bildene står i...) 6 åringen og pappan har løpekonkurranse rundt huset. Startet med en runde, neste omgang var to runder, tredje omgang var tre runder og siste omgang var 5 runder rundt huset.... Det ble to slitne gutter i huset.....

Time flies, can't believe our little boys starts school tomorrow. This page is about the two boys in the house running around the house chasing each others.

Jeg begynte siden med gesso og stensil på det prikkete arket, så stensiler sammen med svart distressfarge og så litt stempling og til slutt noen dråper med mist i forskjellige farger. Litt lager på lager med ark i blå og gråe toner. Arkene er stiftet sammen på mitten og det er da godt med rom for å sette fast bånd slik jeg har gjort på denne siden.

I started this page with gesso and stencils, and then the next layers are stencils together with black distress ink, some stamping in black and the last part was adding different drops of mist. The paper layers are stitched together, which leaves plenty of room to adhere ribbon like I have done on this page.

Special Guest Designer Inkido

Jeg er så heldig å være gjest hos Inkido nå i høst og her er min presentasjon og første inlegg for høsten. 

My presentation at Inkido. 

Who am I ? My name is Christin Grønnslett. 39 years old, lives in Norway with husband and two kids (6 and almost 4)  My blog: I am one of those night owl scrappers. Every evening when the kids are asleep, I sneak down to my scrapcave way in the basement and scrap. If you look at my pages there are a few things that easily points to me. I mostly scrap using a white cardstock, I use stencils and stamps with distress inks, doilies are present and I use several layers, but most important - I am allergic to using up a whole page  so you will always se a lot of white space.  I am no documentation scrapper, allthough I often use my own handwriting. I love just capture different facial expressions as the kids grow older. 

If you want to know more about my creative process, you can go back to my May post 

"Huske" is the name of this project - with a picture of my 3 year old in the swing the garden. She is not happy - I am not giving her a push - I am just photographing her - not very popular....

If you see the two projects in the other post you can see that I first used color products, stamps, stencils and THEN added my layers of paper, well, here I have done a mix of those two layering techniques.  Here is my thoughts on the different techniques: If you prefer a rather flat layering style and no big flowers and want to have room for a lot of pages in your albums I would recommend using this approach which goes as follows.  Glue down every layer on top of each other, leaving not much air between the layers, stamps, stencil and add gesso ON TOP of all the layers, and then add the picture and decorations.  This style is very common in Eastern Europe and if you are familiar with especially polish scrappers you would see this style.   Then there is the style in which I am most familiar. You do all the color work on the page before you start adding layers, and then staple the layers giving the papers a lot of air to tuck things in between. 3d adhesive is commonly used too.

Hope Chest Ebook Pink Paislee

I am proud to present my layout in the latest of Pink Paislees ebook featuring the Hope Chest collection. I wanted to show that you can scrap really colorful with the Hope Chest collection too, you don't have to go totally vintage. 

This might seem like a fall layout, but we found a few leaves when the snow was gone - thereby the title Spring. 

Just push the picture below to get to the ebooks.

Gratulasjonskort - Papirdesign

Dagens kort på Papirdesign

Noen ganger er jeg i humør til å lage kort. Det er ikke ofte, men noen ganger synes jeg at jeg har laget nok layouter. I sommer tror jeg at jeg har laget litt over 20 layouter...

From time to time I am in the mood to make cards, doesn't happen very often, but I feel I have made so many layouts this summer (around 20) so I thought I would have to make some cards.

Som base for dette kortet har jeg ikke brukt vanlig hvit cardstock, jeg har brukt akvarellpapir som jeg har kuttet til 11x28 og brettet. (Arket var A3)

For å få den lille bakgrunnen på arket dryppet jeg litt vann på arket og penslet utover med en pensel, (god ide er å bruke en vannpensel, men jeg fant ikke min etter at jeg flyttet scrappesakene min fra stua til scrapperommet - nå er scrappeferien i stua over) Så dryppet jeg mist over som jeg penslet utover. Noen flere drypp med ulike mister gir fin effekt.

As a base for this layout I haven't used ordinary white cardstock, I have used watercolorpaper, cut to 11x28 cm (The paper was A3)

For the purple background I used water and a brush and then mist and then again the brush to spread the color. I dropped some more mist both before and after it had dried a little.

Oppå det mistede området stemplet jeg med et bakgrunnstempel.

On top of the misted area I stamped a little.

For å lage borden brukte jeg en EK Success stans for å få vimplene, og bare kuttet de litt på hver side for at de ikke skulle være helt rette. Tapet en halv doily bak og sydde på blondekanten. Deretter dekorerte jeg med masse småblomster og litt blingswirl.

To make the border I used a EK success punch, and just trimmed it a little on the side to avoid the square look. I taped half a doily and sewed some riboon on. As a last touch I decorated with mini roses and some bling swirls.
