Bella Rouge

Only way to get some Bella Rouge paper here in Norway was to buy the 12x12 stack and that is a lot of paper...

Here is one layout and a card with the collection from Pink Paislee.

Goals for 2015

The last months have been quiet here on the blog and I have been making a lot less layouts than usual. Instead I have been knitting and doing other things. Haven't had the same amount of time to sit in my scraproom, but I wanted things to do.

I had fun decorating for a New Years party, so I decided to try to make a Valentine table, papers from Pink Paislee - Bella Rouge. I even decorated the plates - with nailpolish. I hope I can inspire you to go a little outside your comfort zone or normal scrap routine with this.    (I even baked chocolate muffins for the photos..  I got my husband to buy some pink candy for the photo. Can you see the FIVE square sweets, well that was what he bought.....

Here are my non-scrapbook related projects from the last month.  I have been knitting more than I show here, but have no photos.  The grey and white chevron is a pillow in progress. I made lots of bags to have silica gel to have in cars to absorb moist.  I made two skirts for my 5 year old, and lots of hats.

Here are a few of my hats. Avengers, Anna and Elsa from Frost and Minecraft.

In the first project I showed nailpolish plates. I planned to make glasses and stuff with nail polish as Christmas presents, but some of the nailpolish didn't really stick so I had to find something last minute, but they look cool enough in my scraproom....

Lastly I have painted different things in my scraproom, will show that later. 

To sum it up, I ended 2014 by crrafting more and I intend to continue to. I hadn't knitted in 20 years and had forgot how fun it was.  I have also bought some fabric (wished it wasn't impossible to get fun fabric here) so I will be sewing more in 2015.  I did make a skirt and a dress last year.
